    LOL. As I have pointed out in another thread branch, that simply means that the NEXT group of judges may decide the exact oppostie or that the constitution of Iowa must be amended to clarify a different position on SSM. I have no interest either way what the fine folks in Iowa decide to do. If the Iowa legisalture was unaware of the meaning of the Iowa state constitution that is of no concern to me, perhaps not even to the voters in Iowa. Striking down a law as unconstitutional is not "activism" yet I do find it strange when a court makes a ruling in the exact opposite direction based on the same laws. ;-)

    God forbid a CEO states he/she supports the unborn's/fetus's right to live.

    There'd probably be violence.

    I liked his post about a positive advance, but reminded him that we still have a ways to go.

    As long as he doesn't force rape victims to have a vaginal probe before they can get a morning after pill.

    Or as long as he doesn't prevent his female employees from getting private medical advice from their OBGYN's.

    I don't know, but you're really making me want to eat there. And I don't even necessarily like the place.

    Maybe, if they get a better argument. Again, it simply isn't always a clear as some think. But it's not emotion. It's arguing what the law actually means. However, these rulings set a precedence, which makes it hard for the next group to say differently.

    And it works the same way with the federal Constitution.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    So? If you really dig into it, most companies out there probably do something with at least part of their money that I would find distasteful. I'm not going to spend hours researching what every company in America does with all of their profits before I decide to shop there.
