    Greetings, tres borrachos.
    Happy Monday Pol! I hope you are well my friend.

    Sandra Fluke I think actually started all of this.

    But Alito held that in the case before the court, the religious objections cited were legally legitimate, under a law that bars the government from taking action in certain cases that "substantially burdens" freedom of religion. He noted that fines for one company could total $475 million per year if they did not comply with the ObamaCare rule.
    Wow!!!

    What exactly makes Sandra Fluke a "loon"? Are we going to start mischaracterizing all of her statements yet again?

    I can NOT believe you actually equated the problems of a diabetic with someone not getting 4 of 20 types of birth control paid for. Insulin is keeping me alive.
    They're both medical prescriptions, as well. Of course, I was not intentionally targeting you - hopefully you understand that. Are you T1 or T2?

    Sandra Fluke wouldn't have "started" anything if she hadn't been invited to speak in front of Congress on the issue.

    She just said family owned which violate their religious views. Now I am trying to remember some of the specifics, I was trying to listen and the wife was talking and she was expecting me to listen to her which I was trying to ignore her and listen to the radio. I do not think it applied to a specific religion. But maybe it did as the lawyer did say it was a narrow decision that only a few other family owned companies could fall under it. I don't know.

    I suppose none of really knows all the repercussions as each of us is going by what was reported on TV, the radio or what they read in an article somewhere.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    This is why progressivism is about to go down in flames as it should.

    T2, and my son gets an acne prescription from his pediatrician, but he won't die or get sick if he doesn't get it.

    You weren't targeting me, but you equated diabetes with birth control, and I'm sorry but that isn't a serious discussion and as a diabetic, I resent the comparison.

    She's running for California state senate.

    Your "contribution" to the thread is duly noted.

    A candidate for what? I hadn't heard about that.
