More 5-4 Conservative Activist Supreme Court Decisions. Will the Media ever notice? Religious freedom for Companies.

Let's make the Roberts court the most overturned court in U.S. history soon, okay?

We now have the possibility of a separate religious "nation" of companies exempt from constitutional requirements. Reporter Chris Hedges warned us this was highly likely. He was proven right today. And the conservative activist justices, all men, are having their way like never before.  This decision is just the first, setting up many more anti-women cases.

Some in the media are saying this is a narrow decision, giving this court a pass again, but it really isn't.

The 5 male justices think they can keep women from getting contraceptive coverage and throwing equality out the window for corporate religious reasons. Instead of science, they allowed the belief of Hobby Lobby to decide their case.

Oh, and this is what women pay out of pocket instead of having insurance coverage:

A Better Idea: Business, say the five conservative justices, can force women to pay their own way. This means that having or not having a child is a woman's "problem." Perhaps woman should take that one step further, and cut men off from their connection to fatherhood too, if and when they choose. They should take custody rights away from these incidental fathers who have so little to do with family planning. Guys apparently want to be free from the burden of birth control, and the justices are using religion to do that.

Is a little personal responsibility so difficult?

I often wonder what color the sky is in liberal land.

Big talker, I didn't see where you oppose men's services, like ED medication, or vasectomies. That's right, men don't have anything to do with sex or pregnancies, big talker. Personal responsibility starts with the guy.

Big? No, just right. Everyone needs to start taking some personal responsibility for their lives and stop relying on the Federal Government to take care of them.

Or don't. I don't care. Go down with the ship.

I didn't say men don't have anything to do with sex or pregnancies. You only hear what you want to hear don't ya? Personal responsibility starts with you.

As for men's services, I pay for everything out of pocket. I have no employer who is forced to provide services for me that he didn't hire me for.

It's not the specific services that matter. It's simply that too much power has been given to employees and the sense of entitlement is out of control.

You want it? You pay for it. The rest of us are tired of carrying everyone else. You can get off your butt, get to work, and figure out how to buy contraceptives for everyone if you want.

Chicken shit Anonymous trolls: Try reading and staying on topic.

The fact that you don't do something, doesn't change or address the issue men get services and women don't pertaining to sex. It makes sense and addresses health concerns because doctors are involved. I don't care about how irresponsible you are with your life.

Part of your insurance premium is used to fund state government high risk pools so insurers can make a profit without the risk. You're happy with that, corporate welfare.
