Supreme Court Slaps Øbama On Birth Control Mandate

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that some corporations can hold religious objections that allow them to opt out of the new health law requirement that they cover contraceptives for women.
The justices' 5-4 decision is the first time that the high court has ruled that profit-seeking businesses can hold religious views under federal law. And it means the Obama administration must search for a different way of providing free contraception to women who are covered under objecting companies' health insurance plans.

I honestly thought they SCOTUS would rule the other way. But as you can see, it was 1 vote away with the 5-4 decision. Think about that. 1 vote could have been another nail in the coffin for freedom of religion, which was once protected by the First Amendment. Don't agree with gay marriage? Too bad, you must bake that couple a gay marriage wedding cake. Your religion doesn't allow for same sex couples to be wed? Too bad, you will perform a gay wedding ceremony in your place of worship for same sex couples. (coming soon to the USA)

Our form of government is sound. It's the people running it that are not. Voting doesn't work when the system is rigged and when checks and balances are not implemented and utilized. Law-making law-breakers are given a slap on the hand and allowed to continue drawing pensions from the people they misrepresented. Representatives don't. Except for their own self interests.

Summer is here. If you haven't started training yet, get to it. The learning curve will be steep if you haven't started yet.

    Far too often, we hear the defeatist talk about being unable to put a "face" on the enemy, of not being able to get up close and personal with them, nose to nose.
    Well, here it is, the Greyhound Corporation.
    Without question, we all have them easily reachable in all of our AO's.
