    I'm not even religious, I just despise people like you who worship the federal government.

    Too bad. Another hit against the worker.

    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.

    The worker?

    I'm a worker and I've done just fine without a union representing me.

    There's a reason that the private workforce s less than 7% unionized.

    The federal government IS their religion. It's pitiful.

    So then you support Newt Gingrich now? I suggest you pay attention to what Newt actually said and not what you want to believe. Now do you know the difference between a Federal Mandate and a state mandate?

    I reject Christianity, and despise anti-abortionists. However, with regard to "closely held" companies like Hobby Lobby, which this ruling seems to be limited to, I agree with this decision. If it had been a corporation, (traded on a stock exchange), I would not support the decision.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    Other Supreme Court rulings have been overturned and I believe that this one may face that fate eventually.

    It appears to violate the 1st Amendment.

    GREAT JOB HOBBY LOBBY !!!

    You stood up for Christian values again. Just like when you stop importing products from China.

    Oh Wait I forgot Profit > Christ
