“Federal Court Temporarily Blocks HHS Contraception Mandate for Private Business Owner”

The headline is unintentionally ironic because it speaks to the now temporary nature of what were once considered rights the government could not infringe upon, no matter what John Roberts would say hundreds of years on.

Just thought I’d point that out.

You’re welcome.

  1. I’ve got it! I am establishing a religion where it is a core belief and sin to provide health care to employees based on human dignity. I’ll be the pastor (and the guy who passes the collection plate). Any business can be a member of my church ( for a small fee)(much smaller than the obamacare fine).
    Who’s with me?!

  2. I’m in. So long as I get a cool hat and a scepter.

    Though I’d settle for a wand.

  3. John Roberts is kind of a pervert who very quickly turned the supreme court into a place where people go to urinate on the constitution

    it’s weird that he’s in the federalist society

  4. I’ve started carving off a portion of a certain employee’s salary because I fear he might spend it at the shooting range, which I’m religiously opposed to.

  5. That might hold if there were a federal requirement that you provide ammunition benefits to your employees.

    Keep trying, slippy. Someday you’ll make a point that can withstand mild scrutiny. Even a blind squirrel stumbles across a nut sooner or later!

  6. Hang on, sloopy, hang on – I think I’ve got it. Hows about you cut that employee’s pay because you don’t like what he says when he exercises his right to say it? Yeah, that’s the ticket! We can get rid of two constitutionally-protected rights at the same time.
    Care to try again?
    By the way, in real life, how many employees do you personally employ? Not a rhetorical question – just interested.
