Legal Question: Hobby Lobby Versus Marriage Equality Decision

Do these two decisions lead to another SCOTUS ruling when government officals opt out of performing marriage ceremonies based on their "sincerely" held religious beliefs?

Just wondering.

In my lifetime African-American children have been blown up and African-American adults shot down.

Both incidents in a church.

Incidents separated by 52 years in time

All of this reinforces my belief you can't let the racists win. Where they destroy, create healing.

They shall not win. EVER.



New CBS Reality TV Show Exploits Poor by making them grovel for $100,000

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/05/the-hunger-games-new-cbs-reality-show-exploits-poor-families-by-making-them-grovel-for-101000/
As if to prove there are new depths to be plumbed in the world of reality television (because who knew?), CBS just debuted The Briefcase, a show which takes poverty porn, class anxiety, emotional manipulation and exploitation and packages them all neatly into a pretty despicable hour of primetime television. Kicking off each episode with the question, “What would you do with $101,000?” the show then deep-dives into a competition that asks two unwitting, financially strapped families to choose between two no-win options: being financially solvent yet appearing heartless and greedy, or drowning in debt yet having audiences recognize them as selfless and giving.

Reality TV is the new gladiator arena for bread and circuses. I would rather watch a show where the One Percenters at CBS, who created this monstrosity, try to rationalize their way out of not being dragged to the National Razor.

Texas wants to mark ACA users with a "QHP" on their insurance cards

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/texas-senate-obamacare-labels
snip:

The Texas state Senate on Tuesday evening passed a bill that would label the health insurance cards of individuals who purchased their insurance through an exchange set up through Obamacare, the Texas Tribune reported.

The legislation, which already passed in the House, would require health insurers to label those insurance cards with "QHP."

If these same legislators don't protest federal flood aid what should they be labeled with? FTH for F...ing Teabagger Hypocrite

Teahaddist Congressman are High End Squatters

http://www.dailykos.com/story/2015/05/26/1387818/-How-dozens-of-lawmakers-avoid-paying-rent
snip:

The dozens of members who sleep in their offices are, in effect, spending their weekdays in 100 percent federally subsidized apartments.
They are not charged any rent. They receive no utility bills. They don’t pay for the daily cleaning services. Microwaves and refrigerators have been installed in most suites. There’s a half bathroom connected to each personal office, and the showers at the members’ gym open at 5:30 a.m.

In short, lawmakers who choose their offices as their crash pads are getting a valuable government freebie — worth 10 percent or more of their $174,000 annual salary.


The Reich Wing are the true takers.

Fox and Friends Can't Change a Tire--Fail Manhood Test

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/05/most-painful-fox-friends-segment-ever-hosts-fail-manhood-test-after-tire-change-ends-in-near-disaster/
snip:
The hosts of Fox & Friends nearly caused serious damage to a rental car on Tuesday while trying to prove their “manhood” by changing a tire.

These guys opine on changing society by lowering taxes on corporations (corporations are people my friends, try changing that tire), changing welfare rules, and changing or junking the rules of health care. Yet, they can't change a tire. By the way, that should be failing the Personhood Test. I taught my daughter to change a tire when she was 16.

Chuckle for the day

A music store was robbed recently. The robbers made off with the lute.

WTF--What The Friedman

Against my better judgment I tuned into Meet the Toad this morning and what do I see? Thomas Friedman being asked his opinion about the situation in Iraq. Really? He was one of the biggest cheerleaders for the biggest foreign relations disaster since Vietnam and you want his views.

Another example of how the pundit military class can be 100 percent wrong and continue to be 100 percent employed by Sunday morning shows.

There must be some law of physics that says this is not possible.

Teahaddist Link to Benghazi and Amtrak

Teahaddists say no to increased funding for State Department security or for improving safety for Amtrak. They kill Americans.

The Wingnuts are a clear and present danger to our country, in fact, the entire world.

Ex Gov Rendell Blasts Teahaddists over Amtrak Cuts

http://www.rawstory.com/2015/05/ex-penn-governor-blasts-house-gop-those-sobs-wouldnt-even-table-amtrak-cuts-after-fatal-wreck/
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell was visibly angry at House Republicans during an MSNBC interview on Wednesday, nearly cursing on-air about the GOP’s plan to cut $252 million in Amtrak funding hours after a train derailment that killed seven people and injured more than 50 others.

“Those SOBs, and that’s all I can call them, these SOBs didn’t even have the decency to table the vote,” Rendell told host Chris Hayes, who quickly responded by playing devil’s advocate.

The Reich Wing views Amtrak riders as takers so they wouldn't care if there was a crash everyday.
