Hobby Lobby and Conestoga surely do not stand alone as commercial enterprises seeking exemptions from generally applicable laws on the basis of their religious beliefs/ See, e.g., Newman v. Piggie Park Enterprises Inc., owner of a restaurant chain that refused to serve black patrons based on his religious beliefs opposing racial integration. Any decision to use contraceptives made by a woman covered under Hobby Lobby’s or Conestoga’s plan will not be propelled by the government, it will be the woman’s autonomous choice, informed by the physician she consults… SURFBOART.

Conaway said the firestorm occurred ‘only because one reporter who makes a living jacking people up about these trips’ wrote about the issue. ‘We had gotten not one complaint from the public,’ he added of the unannounced change. ‘Not one person had looked for this information except this reporter.’

Oops, that was us

Proud of my team today! 

I call them the Beyonce voters. The single ladies. Obama won the single ladies by 76 percent last time, and they made up about a quarter of the electorate. They depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands. They need things like contraception, healthcare, and they love to talk about equal pay.
