    The regulation concerned in the case was NOT part of the law when it was passed. It was INSERTED by Sebelius AFTER THE FACT, specifically to cause this situation – by OBAMA’S ORDERS.

    Next up, legal scholar Scalia will provide several different legal definitions of what constitutes a ‘sincerely held’ religious belief.

    Each one will have to pass the ’we’ll know it when we see it’ test.

    In what just may be the most stunning example of hypocrisy in my lifetime, Mother Jones has uncovered numerous investments on the part of Hobby Lobby’s retirement fund in a wide variety of companies producing abortion and contraception related products.

    Hobby Lobby is currently seeking relief from certain contraception benefit requirements of Obamacare in a United States Supreme Court case that promises to be a landmark decision on the rights of corporations and the extension of personal religious protections to corporate entities. In the case of the Hobby Lobby corporation, the company is closely held by the Green family who purport to have strong religious objections to certain types of contraceptive devices and are suing to protect those religious rights.

    Remarkably, the contraceptive devices and products that so offend the religious beliefs of this family are manufactured by the very companies in which Hobby Lobby holds a substantial stake via their employee 401(k) plan.

    As I suspect many readers will find this as hard to believe and digest as I, the data can be confirmed by reviewing the company’s 2012 Annual Report of Employee Benefit Plan as filed with the Department of Labor.

    I think if I want any rights at all, the way things are going, I had better incorporate myself. I think that is possible, authors do it, I hear.

    And apparently, the law isn’t the law either, when either the Supreme Court rules against it or the Executive decides not to enforce it or decides to unilaterally to modify it.

    Or, we could re-write the laws, de-fund or eliminate the regulatory agency, and claim State’s Rights.

    Yew, California polluters COME ON DOWN to Texas. We’re a “right to work” state :::wink, wink:::
