Rod Stewart – Have You Ever Seen The Rain..what a singer / entertainer ..humor me Jack it is a short thread.
This will be an interesting SCOTUS case to follow, could have big ramifications.
the simple resolution is clearly stated at the end of the article:
Hobby Lobby and the other companies currently suing the Obama administration can resolve their problems by simply jettisoning their health insurance plans and letting their employees purchase coverage through the exchanges.
It’s probably a Kook funded case, hooray for americans for prosperity.
“mericans” for FASCISM! sorry, I hate these reich-wing propaganda organizations with a passion.
Saw this a few days ago, yes potentially more obscene religious corporate-fascism here in the “holy”-states-of-merica…. How long till we have our own religious-police patrolling for “sinners”…
They’ve been doing that for a long time already.
Like the article says, the court opened the door to this argument when it ruled in Citizens United that a corporation has First Amendment rights.
Lest we forget, corporations are people too. (Gak)
United Citizens Against Citizens United!..Mornin’ Wave!….8-)
Hey 4E, yeah I know. Amazing how they pick these names just to obfuscate their true and insidious purpose.
DEATH! to -ALL- “corporate people”! Far as I’m concerned if they’re “people” then they are liable to the death penalty the reich-wingers are so fond of. EXECUTE THEM!!!!
Off with their heads
where’s our old friend with the guillotine!?

Give Hobby Lobby — and other companies that want to undermine the Affordable Care Act — a piece of your mind.
Good morning everyone!
Finally ……….. Spring is here!! 🌷🌱🌸🌹🍃🌺🌻🌴🌾
I have tried different hours ……. so I guess I’m in the right place at the wrong time AGAIN!
Okay, see you all some other time.
Enjoy the beautiful Saturday, Bebe, I was hoping to see you today, lots of love to you, this is for you! 😉
Awe…forpeace..where did you go ?
My favorite flowers and yellow …loving it…we need to have a time set for our date..so so so sorry to have missed you my lovely soulmate.. ❤
Hiya, forpeace, dear!..XO..I was just about to walk away….How are you??….8-)
Good morning forpeace, how are you doing this morning ? I hope all is well with you.
HA! It’s greasy, it’s stringy, and it’s fly-away all at the same time.
Today’s evidence science is alive and well and wicked cool.
Germany can now crush the solar power race,
Researchers at the National Physical Laboratory have announced they’ve created solar panels which are actually more efficient when the sun is less intense.
This is a major breakthrough. It nudges my dream of pointless unfrackable tracts of Canada biting the Koch’s in the ass a little closer.
I’ll 2nd that!
What’s after Crimea? Wasn’t Alaska once part of Russia too?
Ha! one of putins favorite wet dreams there!
Wait a minute. Northern Cali is in that mix too.
Afternoon Mr. Hole, what’s going on in your world today ?
Getting ready to meet up with some friends later on.
Weren’t you the one lamenting that you wished to see more snow ? http://www.accuweather.com/en/weather-news/februarylike-chill-to-grip-mid/24687912
I don’t want a few flurries I want snowmaggedon!
be careful what you wish for Jack.
Just what Bill Maher was talking about last night. Pathetic Dems trying to out-luv reich-wingers on their gun-luv, afraid to FIGHT for this nominee…
Sign the petition: NRA threatens nominee that has nothing to do with guns
Sad to say but unfortunately it’s literally gonna take about another 10 years for the left to grow a pair and put an end to this insanity.
I’d say the “so-called” left as they aren’t that anymore. Left that is. Most the “so-called” (by the reich) Left, isn’t. Certainly not what I would call Liberal, or Progressive. All too corporate. Too many “blue dogs”, corporatists and wanna-be reich-wingers.
That’s why it’s gonna take 10 years. They are going to need to reestablish and redefine themselves.
I don’t think there’ll be anything left after 10 more years of their neo-feudal corporate-fascism. karl roves nightmare “vision” or permanent reich-wing rule will be in place.
I have faith these things will be overturned. Not today, not tomorrow, but within the next decade.
Agree, MS..Ebil is on the fast track, and it needs to be derailed before it gets up to full speed….8-)
longer it remains, deeper it sets it’s cancerous roots!
Hello, dear Realm folk, how are things in the land of plenty today?
Good evening Fi, I’ll let MR. Hole fill you in. He’s wishing for a snowmaggedon!
As long as it just covers his wee corner of the world, that’s ok by me!
Unfortunately it covers my wee part of the world as well
I thought you were in Wisconsin?
same storm from the northwest will pretty much hit us both
HI FI !! ..Weather here is totally overcast, below normal temps and breezy..But IDC because I’m indoors today, watching college basketball, providing cat laps and checking that Mrs.4E needs nothing..Howz you, Mr FI and Angus doing?….8-)
WAKE-UP YOU BUMS!!!!!!!!!
4E!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How’s Mrs4E?
She’s relatively good, Jack, thanks, resting on the coach with TV remote in hand and a pair of kittehs to keep her blanket from floating away..Dull pain until she moves, but she’s preferring to remain awake..That’s good progress!!..YaY!….8-).
We’re here, where are you ?
So much for free market,
WOW 😯 I haven’t been following this.
Was there ever such a thing as a truly free market ?
This is the first I’ve heard of it.
Not that there ever really was a “free” market, but:
“That passage alone is a stunning example of not just flagrantly illegal practices—it also shows how few rights companies assume their employees are entitled to, rights that Americans take for granted—such as the right to free speech, the right to assembly, the right to ask one’s own co-worker if he or she would be interested in taking a better job somewhere else…”
reinforces that many (especially larger) companies consider employees chattel….8-)
Welcome to my life
This happens in MNCs even between departments..Ever been told you’ve been “blocked?”….8-)
I mentioned here that I just saw my shrink on Thursday to get another 6mo script for my meds. While she had me in there, because she knows I’m an Aspie I’m assuming she felt obligated to go over with me “how not to be taken advantage of” (ie don’t lend or give away your money). She was also schooling me in the art of how to keep your head down, stay off the radar, and survive in the work place.
Great advice if you want to get downsized….8-)
Actually this was some good advice on how not to draw negative attention to yourself. But nothing that I have not already learned the hard way.
Negative is one thing..far from the only thing….8-)
yeah you have to learn how to blend in, schmooze, suck up, and kiss ass too. things that I am loathe to do. Just sayin’
BTDT.. 🙂 ….8-)
Yes haven’t we all. Apparently it’s SOP. However, whereas most seem to have no qualms to acquiescing to these demands in the slightest, it literally turns my stomach and makes me physically ill.
Unfortunately it’s a little late in life to get into another line of work other that ass-kissing techno geek.
Businesses are so ballsy now they have dispensed with the cumbersome euphemisms like “downsizing” and now just plain ole “throw your ass out the door, and kick you to the curb”
chattel! that’s exactly it, what they think of their workers! Also serfs, peasants, unwanted-expenditures…
the “free” market was always a LIE.
Where Is Our Meaningful Jobs Program Mr President ? Just Sayin’
The economy has improved only slightly. Unemployment remains high, and the jobs that do exist are often low-wage and part-time. Since 2011, we’ve seen not only Occupy but the rise of a movement of Walmart and fast-food workers demanding better wages and, often, more hours, so they can take home a full-time paycheck. A shorter hours movement has not materialized,
nor has a meaningful jobs program,
despite the promises of a bipartisan clutch of politicians. The minimum wage has risen in some states and cities, but workers are still struggling, and the long-term unemployed have seen their benefits cut off by a Congress that continues to squabble about whether or not they deserve to be able to pay bills. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/03/21/1286570/-Open-thread-for-night-owls-Jaffe-on-the-end-of-jobs
You thought the Boehner and Obama were serious, didn’t you, Wave?….8-)
Ha!..Now he can talk out of both sides of both mouths!….8-)
He can deregulate wall st and talk to corporations as people at the same time.
How did he NOT win???….8-)
You are missing working on Donald Trumps campaign for Gov, I can tell.
I just haven’t had the time to join his superpac.
Because he is a blockhead ?
Boy did we dodge a bullet with that guy
I think he will run again in 2016!
We sure did stranger, we sure did!
Oh, I’d say it was a larger armament….8-)
the corporate-masters don’t give a damn about the peasant-classes.
So what should we do for a new page?
and we’re skilled
Ok so i’ll goof off and post no page 😛
perfect! run this one to three thousand
You’ll have whalage before a 1000.
Please correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t the whale Caller’s landlord when he gets online and eats up all the bandwidth ? In other words the whale is a person who eats up bandwidth. But it seems you are using the term whale as an adjective to mean a slow running connection.
I wonder who the stranger was.
Albert Camus, you also know Paul was the walrus, right?
Not according to John http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDOBMz2TGi8
“the dleam is over”
Never give up on dreams,
I want to invent corn flakes!
Time travel could be possible or perhaps a new type of corn flakes.
Kellogg’s invented them to feed the patients in asylums.
When I was in college in the arctic tundra of upstate NY, I had this poster hung above my bed. It was this first thing I saw in the morning when I woke up and the last thing I saw before I went to sleep at night. http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NTAwWDUwMA==/z/FosAAOxydgZTIK7h/$_35.JPG
(After I graduated I eventually moved to south Florida.)
This is interesting, Rush Limbaugh’s children’s book is a finalist for some Children’s Book Council award. The reason it’s a finalist is because of it’s sales volume.
This article mentions this. Right-wingers are so lame and insecure that right-wing groups notoriously buy up right-wing books in bulk to push them to the top of bestseller lists, which is the real reason why you see a lot of books by Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck, and Ann Coulter at the top of bestseller lists. It’s not people actually buying these books, but right-wing groups, sometimes even PACs. The whole thing is so lame.
It reminds me of some right-winger who was obviously writing glowing reviews of his own book on Amazon.com using a bunch of different accounts.
Yup, HH, it the Lia(R)s way to success….8-)
I wonders what happens to all these books they buy? Do they just throw them away or give them away to their donors?
Donors get them, HH..or they’ll get donated to charity….8-)
there is no limit to the depths of the foulness of those people, their ways of LIES, manipulations, propaganda… and endless depth of EVIL.
NEW PAGE BYE!!!!!!!!
Good!..Please make one where my notifications will work, Jack..if you please….8-)
Like the mighty oak said to the little acorn, “you’re on your own”
do you have a black WordPress status bar directly underneath your browser status bar at the top of your screen ?
Jack I give Mitt a point…other day when all the repubs were coming down on Hillary ( topic Bill Clinton), he defended her, sort of.
“…Wal-Mart’s U.S. discount division recorded its fourth consecutive quarter of declines in revenue at stores opened at least a year, a critical yardstick for measuring a retailer’s health. The discounter also has seen a decline in the number of shoppers going to its stores.”..Well, it ain’t the everyday low prices, brickheads….8-)
