“You're mistaken. Their lifetimes appointments are provided in the U.S. Constitution.”

“I know. It's the only thing in the Constitution I think need revising. The Supreme Court already thinks the Constitution is what they say it is and when you get ideologues in there should be some way of getting rid of them when they cause too much harm. The right wing of the current incumbents have legalized bribery out on the open based on the lie that campaign contributions in large amounts are not bribes.”

“The US Constitution isn't worth wiping my b um with.”
“If it's OK to prohibit individuals like the Kochs from spending money to promote their political position, then wouldn't it also be OK to prohibit a corporation like the New York Times from doing the same?
Why's one OK, and the other not? Is it just because the Koch's are conservative and the NYT is liberal?”

“Absolutely! I am not sure why one believes that the more money one has that it would entitle them to greater access to any of our democratic institutions, whether or not their politics is conservative or liberal.”

“Nobody cares if the Kochs buy a newspaper (if they don't already own one) and print all the propaganda they want. Your analogy is ridiculously false.”
“Oh, I see you'd like to change the subject with your "Btw..."

“I'm not trying to change the subject at all. I was just offering up new information that has come to light which makes the Hobby Lobby suit even more outrageous.
The bottom line on your criminality complaint remains the same. The health insurance requirements are a legitimate part of employment law and those who refuse to comply need to face the same consequences that I would if I refused to comply with employment law.
Of course, single payer health care would eliminate this issue altogether. It's too bad that the GOP prefers to let middle class people lose everything when they get sick instead of creating a simple, affordable healthcare system which would result in a healthier populace at a significantly lower cost than our current system.”
So the penalties for failing to comply with their law are merely (1) they sue you, (2) they win a judgment for money, and (3) they seize your property.
Considered that way, I suppose the mandates of Obamacare are not so bad...... LOL”

“Your claim was that it was criminal which it is not.
Btw, the pills that Hobby Lobby object to are not abortifacients and were actually covered in their insurance before they decided to get their name in the papers. Oh, and the Greens invest in the corporation that makes one or more of those pills.
“This particular issue was not before the Supreme court. But it will be.”

“what the court was asked to rule on was the foundation of the law. without it, the law would have been struck down, and this would be a moot point. but the right wing is so rabid and out of control, that they will grasp at any kind of straw to try and hurt people, from trying to claim that corporations can have religious convictions that they have the right to force on other people, to trying to parse the meaning of the word "state" to death. they know that now this law has taken hold, it's going to be impossible to repeal it and still get elected to office, so they're trying any desperate tactic they can think of the spectacle they are making of themselves is appalling, but not half as appalling as knowing that they have supporters who encourage them. that's just shameful, especially for anyone with a single functioning synapse.”
