Hobby Lobby Invests 401(k) Funds in Companies that Manufacture Emergency Contraceptives

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/04/hobby-lobby-retirement-plan-invested-emergency-contraception-and-abortion-drug-makers
snip:

Documents filed with the Department of Labor and dated December 2012—three months after the company's owners filed their lawsuit—show that the Hobby Lobby 401(k) employee retirement plan held more than $73 million in mutual funds with investments in companies that produce emergency contraceptive pills, intrauterine devices, and drugs commonly used in abortions. Hobby Lobby makes large matching contributions to this company-sponsored 401(k).


As usual follow the money, and find the truth. Cash before religious principles, and both of these before women's health and privacy.

If you could be personally present to witness a historical event, as your adult self,

to any event in your lifetime what would it be? You can't change the event, just be present.

As I was born in the 1950s, I would like to have been on the rope line when that SOB Nixon was dispatched from the White House.

Mass. Buffer Zone For Abortion Clinic Patients Struck Down

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/06/26/mccullen-v-coakley_n_5533136.html
snip:

The Supreme Court ruled on McCullen v. Coakley Thursday, striking down a Massachusetts law requiring protesters to stay at least 35 feet from an abortion clinic's entrance and walkways.
In a unanimous opinion, the court held that such buffer zones violate First Amendment free speech rights.

"This decision is incredibly disappointing and ignores the very real threats of violence and intimidation that abortion providers and their patients face every day," Saporta said. "Since 1977, there have been 8 murders, 17 attempted murders, 42 bombings, 181 arsons, and thousands of incidents of criminal activities.


My guess is that Supreme Court Justices do not allow people to videotape, scream, and stalk them as they go to work. What a disastrous decision.

Chuck Toad's Comment on HRC Makes Me Want to Puke

On NBC Propaganda News tonight Toad said part of Hillary's problem of being out of touch with common folk is she has been been in a Secret Service bubble for the past 22 years.

Hey Toad, maybe she wants to stay out of touch with Wingnuts like this.

snip:

At least one GOP official in Arkansas thinks Hillary Clinton would receive a rather chilly welcome as a 2016 presidential candidate in her adoptive home state.

"She'd probably get shot at the state line," 2nd Congressional District party chairman Johnny Rhoda told U.S. News. When pressed that Clinton would likely still enjoy some level of affection in the state where her husband Bill served as governor for 10-plus years, Rhoda held firm.


Toad is beyond worthless.

5 Deferment Cheney Should be Rotting in the Hague

http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/24462-dick-cheney-should-be-rotting-in-the-hague-not-writing-editorials

snip:

American history has had its share of villains - J. Edgar Hoover, Joe McCarthy, and Richard Nixon come to mind as some of the worst - but there is no one in recent history who has disgraced our country quite like Dick Cheney has.
He lied his way into an illegal war, profited off that war, and shredded the Constitution. He's a war criminal and has the blood of hundreds of thousands of innocent people on his hands.
Dick Cheney should be rotting in a prison cell at The Hague, not writing editorials for the Wall Street Journal.


Only in America does a war criminal get both open heart surgery resulting in a new heart, and an open mike to spew his vile views.

Topical SAT Question

Al Qaeda is to ISIS

as


The Republican Party is to _________



answer below:





Teaparty

*Note: apparently Al Queada expelled ISIS, Teathugs are embraced by Rethugs. So, nevermind.

Iraq was and is Bush's Mess

http://www.salon.com/2014/06/16/sorry_george_w_bush_but_this_whole_mess_is_still_your_fault/

What kind of addition to the Shrub's Comic Book Library does this current crisis in Iraq justify? I was thinking an exhibition of a permanent tire fire.

A Bush heads into conflict

Not a person of course. An Aircraft Carrier. Rename it the USS Military Industrial Complex. More appropriate.

Sunday Rethug Propaganda Shows

According to the local scandal sheet the Sunday Talking head shows features such notables as: Romney, Cantor, King, Graham, Graham again, Priebus, Cantor again, Rogers, and Price.

I stopped watching these Rethug Gasbag apology shows years ago. This lineup reminds me why.


Wingnut Sessions Says Screw You to Veterans

http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show/blank-check-veterans

snip:

“I feel strongly we’ve got to do the right thing for our veterans. But I don’t think we should create a blank check, an unlimited entitlement program, now,” Sessions said.

Like with Romney's 47% remark, sometimes the Rethug Teahaddist veil slips and you get to see the actual face of these sleazes. Sessions' remarks let everybody in on the secret long known to many--that Rethugs see Veterans as entitled and expendable "others" who, upon return from duty, can be discarded like a used kleenex.
