The Supreme Court Assaults Women, Says Obama

On Monday, June 30th, the Supreme Court issued a decision that removed a woman's right to own a uterus, took away her right to breathe and told her to get back in the kitchen and make some gawdam pie.  Well, at least that's what the libbies will have you believe if you read anything on social media or listen to the Obama News Network.

In brief, the nation's highest court ruled on a case involving the, ahem, Affordable Care Act and its mandate that employers provide health insurance coverage for all 20 contraceptive methods currently approved by the FDA, at no cost to the employee.  4 of those 20 approved methods work by preventing an already fertilized egg from developing any further by inhibiting its attachment to the uterus (yep, I even did some studying of this shit).  Three closely held for-profit organizations, led by Hobby Lobby, Inc., appealed this mandate all the way to the Supreme Court, on the basis that these forms of contraception (i.e. the ones deemed to be life-terminating drugs such as Plan B, Ella and the IUD) are in stark contrast with their long standing, religious values and that it substantially burdened their religious beliefs, a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.  The black robes ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, et al, and on the side of the Religious Freedome Restoration Act, by a 5-4 vote and sent the pro-choicers into a dither.

The liberals have gone to Twitter and Facebook attacking Hobby Lobby, the Supreme Court and probably George W. Bush.   Not surprisingly, these protesters have done zero research and have turned this decision into a strike against womens' rights.  The Huffington Post did their part in amping up the debate by running a story about how Hobby Lobby does cover Viagara and vasectomies.  HYPOCRITES, they yell!   Of course, they have not done any other reading and have no idea that Hobby Lobby covers the other 16 forms of contraception, including every commonly used birth control pill, at no cost to their employees.

Hobby Lobby is a family run organization, founded by David Green in his garage in Oklahoma and whose mission is forged in his family's love of God and strength of family.  The first line of their mission statement is "We are committed to honoring the Lord in all we do by operating the company in a manner consistent with biblical principles."   If you read this blog regularly, you know I am no Bible thumper and I am not even sure about the Lord.  So this is not about religion to me.  Hobby Lobby and the Green family also strive to nurture and strengthen families.  Their policies are perhaps some of the most family friendly policies of any company.  They are only open 66 hours a week and are closed on Sundays because they believe their employees need time to spend with their families.  Their full-time employees START at a pay rate 90% above federal minimum wage.  This company takes care of their employees.  So to jump ugly with Hobby Lobby because they are holding strong to their religious convictions is irresponsible and quite frankly, short sighted.

Can you imagine if our President and Congress wrote a law that mandates Muslim owned companies to provide for something that violates their Qur'an?  Like say, a sex change operation??  Or removes prayer from the work place??  Holy not a chance in hell!!  The double standard is alive and well... Christianity is the only religion that can safely be dumped on without fear of political backlash.  

And the anger around this decision is not just held for Hobby Lobby.  This particular image is making its way around the web...

I'm not sure exactly how the Plan B or Ella drug regulates a cycle, eases painful cramps or decreases risk of cancer.  Or how an IUD protects against anemia.  Pretty sure condoms go a long way in preventing sexually transmitted disease and unwanted pregnancies.  But I don't expect my boss to supply me with a case of Trojans.  Hell, Metamucil regulates my movements and Kentucky Fried Chicken makes me happy, but my boss won't pay for that either.

Senate Majority Dink, Harry Reid, said, "It's time that five men on the Supreme Court stop deciding what happens to women."  President Obama labeled the decision an "assault on women" and vowed to make it an issue in the November elections.  Make what an issue?

Then there's this girl:

She posed for this picture in front of a Hobby Lobby in her Pro Life shirt holding a Chik-Fil-A cup.  Obviously her goal was to take a shot at the lefties whining about the SCOTUS decision.  Sorry.. but kinda funny.  She posted it on her Instagram and her Twitter page and immediately started receiving hateful tweets and responses.  This is Holly Fisher.  She came to national spotlight when she tweeted in mid-June that she lost her baby's pediatric cardiologist because of Obamacare.  At that time, she endured crazy ass liberal attacks, including one tweet that said "Good.  One less conservative underling to worry about."

So now she's back and getting even more hate than before.  Responses to this latest picture:  "If I were there, I would've shoved that soda down her throat.  That's 1 life not needed"  and "How to make yourself look like a homophobic radical douche."   She is being called a fat bitch, a cunt, a whore.  The same people whining about the Supreme Court's alleged war on women are resorting to this kind of hate.  Awesome when a leopard shows his spots.

This week's Supreme Court decision does not take away any rights from women.  Women will ALWAYS and FOREVER have the right to leave a company that does not pay for what they want or even need and go work for a company that will.  Insurance companies are constantly expanding their lists of shit they will no longer cover.  But they are not violating our rights!  We either suck it up and pay the higher cost, get a cheaper generic drug or find another insurance plan that meets our needs.  If a cashier at Hobby Lobby wants to pop a pill after railing some dude in the back seat of her Camry, then she has to buy that shit herself.   Or she can also exercise her right to, oh I don't know, not have sex.   But something tells me that it's not the Holly Hobby employees (whose rights are allegedly being assaulted) who are complaining.  It's everyone else with a Pelosi in their pants for the ACA.
