noOne I abase myself before your penetrating logic. Clearly I am just a simple blue collar worker fighting outside my mental weight.

One last thing. Could you please enlighten me as to how it is possible to have the majority of Americans on one form of govt assistance or another http://www.forbes.com/sites/merrillmatthews/2014/07/02/weve-crossed-the-tipping-point-most-americans-now-receive-government-benefits/ and still have a good economy?

How? How about by joining the rest of the civilized World? Now because of some 6+ million people signing up for Obamacare, we are (by your conservative opinion article) somewhere around 52% of US households on some sort of government assistance. The rest of the World has long been there with mostly 100% government covered healthcare, with the exceptions of Germany with 11% of its healthcare in private hands and Iceland with 0.2% in private hands. The USA ranks 33 World wide for healthcare with 53.1% of insurance in private hands:

The sky is not falling, Chicken Little. Quite the opposite, I just wish there had been a single payer setup - but both the republicans and Democrats squashed that, with Obama for single payer, so go figure...

8 million on Onamacare, not 6.
It's hopeless, no one. They wanted Romneycare, not Obamacare. They pretend to oppose it because they are afraid to say what is really bothering them. You can't argue with people if they are afraid to admit what really bothers them.
Kinds like when my two year old rejected her bottle because her brother gave it to her, then slopped it down when I gave it to her.

Well I wonder just how many new lawsuits are going to come out of the birth control ruling. Here is an interesting perspective:

The controversial Hobby Lobby decision elevated religious belief over legal compliance -- this may be good news for Quakers, Amish, Mennonites and others who've historically faced punishing reprisals for withholding some of their tax to avoid funding the military.

In particular, Justice Scalia's dicta sets out a logic for conscientious objection to compliance with US law where the issue is related to religious faith. Sarah Ruden, a Quaker, writes in Salon about her belief that she will now be able to field a legal challenge to full tax-payments on the basis of Scalia's argument.

There’s nothing remotely like this basis in conservative Christians’ pleas that they have a religious objection to voluntary abortion (or birth control somehow resembling it) — an issue never even mentioned in the Bible, and manifesting during recent years mainly (it could be argued) as a political wedge and the cat-o’-nine-tails of anti-feminist backlash.

I look forward with mirth to the Supreme Court’s deliberations on whether the portion of military spending funded by the taxes of religious pacifists represents a compelling public interest. Historians of our era — Justice Scalia is especially keen to consult history when backing up his rulings — must already be revving up to declare that it would have benefited our nation hugely had there not been as many military resources available for our government to splash out with. Even more to Scalia’s taste as evidence, a delegate at the 1787 Constitutional Convention declared that a standing army was like an erect penis, “a dangerous temptation to foreign adventure.” Crude analogy, but it’s turned out to be no joke.

Well here we start, with a pro-life nurse-midwife who wants to work for Planned Parenthood, but at the interview openly stated she would not write scripts for birth control. So now, she is suing for right to employment to force her religious views upon others.

This is not what the Founding Fathers had in mind when they wrote the Constitution, and is a travesty that is going to cost us a lot and give us nothing:

Pro-Life Nurse-Midwife Who Won’t Prescribe the Pill Sues Family Planning Center for Not Hiring Her

Family planning centers are one place that women have long been able to trust will provide them contraception access without unnecessary hassle, and now the Christian right is trying to take even that away.

I think the article illustrates that she never intended to work for PP, and that she went in there specifically to cause this lawsuit.

And now the SCOTUS verdict is being used by Satanists:

Satanists want to use Hobby Lobby decision to exempt women from anti-abortion laws

In a statement, the Satanic Temple said that it will use the Supreme Court’s recent Hobby Lobby decision to exempt its believers from state-mandated informed consent laws that require women considering abortions to read pro-life material.

Informed consent or “right to know” laws state that women seeking elective abortions be provided with information about alternatives to the procedure, often couched in language that attempts to personify the fetus. According to the Guttmacher Institute, 35 states currently have informed consent laws, and of those, 33 require that the woman be told the gestational age of the fetus.

Why the contraception mandate was good (low cost birth control)
