    The full quote being (as I heard it): “Not even duct tape can fix stupid, but it can muffle the noise.”

    There’s only two dots instead of three for a proper ellipsis, but I’d say that indicates sarcasm on Charley’s part. He is not looking forward to the sauce.

    They don’t want good education. They say they do, but they don’t.

    What they actually want is schools that teach people to accept authority without thinking.

    In that case, it would be funny if the hearing wasn’t for ‘confirmation’ so much as ‘explanation’. As in: “Just how do you explain all the nuttiness you’ve been up to in Samoa?”

    I used to be like that. Except it didn’t have to be the first five seconds; it could be any five seconds in the show. I can’t guarantee I can do that anymore.

    Nobody has played “Dr. Who”. The character is “The Doctor” and the show is “Dr. Who”.

    I don’t even watch the show and I know that.

    The suggestion in the last panel would probably work perfectly.

    Congratulations! You have now invoked Godwin’s Law and have lost the argument. Please try again when you can bring an argument against the points I am making, rather than making an ad hominem attack.

    I don’t make them up. Unlike the religious community, I deal with scientific consensus for my information. Meanwhile, religious people can make any damn thing they want mean any damn thing, call it their ‘closely held religious beliefs’, and then force it on other people. Because somehow, not being able to force other people to abide by your religion violates your freedom of religion. Sorry, it doesn’t work that way.

    Abortion is defined as the termination of a pregnancy. If a fertilized egg is never implanted, that isn’t a pregnancy. Thus, contraception.

    Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair color.

    The fact that you can’t understand why this SCOTUS decision is wrong on the grounds of organizations vs. individual rights is part of the problem. One day after the ruling, the majority opinion altered their ruling, nullifying your ‘narrow and specific way’. Two days later, they decided they hadn’t gone far enough and altered it again. Five Catholic men decided that women don’t get to make their own healthcare decisions. If Hobby Lobby had gotten their way completely, their employee’s doctors would be forbidden from even discussing contraception. In a nation where 98% of women—including Catholics—use contraception at some point in their lives, this is not going to fly.

    Except that 1) contraception isn’t infanticide, 2) Hobby Lobby gets many of their products from China, which has been accused of encouraging abortion, and 3) their 401K invests in companies that produce contraceptives.

    The religion of a woman’s boss should not be able to affect how she lives her life. And that’s what this ruling has allowed.

    And the reason employers pay for health care at all is because we don’t have universal health care like all the other modern countries. Birth control is an important part of health care. It costs a lot less to prevent a pregnancy than have a pregnancy.
