    Walking into a complete non-sequitur? Sure thing, chief. Feel free to start a thread based on childishly simple views of macroeconomics. Meanwhile, this thread is about the world that exists, not the fairy tale universe you think could exist. People burdened by their employer corporation's "religious beliefs" have to find a job in this universe. When we invent a machine that travels to alternate universes, your discussion will become relevant.

    It's a what-if question about the legality of businesses forcing Sharia Law on employees, Remember?

    A situation that became far more relevant given the Hobby Lobby decision. Despite Alito claiming it only applies to contraception, there's no real basis given for that distinction. Why is Hobby Lobby's religious belief more important than any other? These are relevant questions about a very recent Supreme Court decision. Diabetes is often treated with insulin coming from pigs. Can an Islamic or Jewish employer be exempt from paying for it? So far, it seems only a certain set of Christian beliefs are eligible for religious protection, and that's not a situation I expect will stand forever.

    He was protecting the rest of PPACA. If any person of any supposed religion can withhold coverage for any reason, the PPACA would be rather eviscerated, right? It's a political maneuver.

    Why is Hobby Lobby's religious belief more important than any other? These are relevant questions about a very recent Supreme Court decision.
    You can't use your religion to demand someone else buy you something, and you shouldn't have to invoke your religion to refuse to buy someone else something.

    I'm still asking the question about how the PPACA "tax penalty" thingy is not an unconstitutional direct tax. "Because the SCOTUS said so" is the answer we've been given. Why does that trump card work for PPACA but not for this decision?

    You called my post off topic, essentially. I'm going to repeat what I told the other guy who said the same thing.

    You mentioned that there are more unemployed people than jobs for them to fill. That allowed me to change the discussion's parameters.

    I was just looking at a conversation about whether the New Deal or wartime spending ended the Great Depression. The name of the thread? "Who Do You Think Our Greatest President was?" Or something like that. Point is, discussions change quickly on forums.

    Except my discussion was specific enough to be worthwhile. "Less regulation!" isn't a discussion, it's a catchphrase. My business has to spend a lot of money on recurrent flight training for pilots, by law. Should we remove those regulations?

    It was a couple sentences! What'd you expect, a three paragraph speech on why I support the inclusion of more free market principles in order to bring in more foreign businesses, therefore reversing the unfortunate trend of outsourcing jobs that has caused so much damage to our economy and middle class?

    Why dont they have choices?

    At 6% unemployment, there's still a lot of other people looking for work. "Just get another job" is an easy thing to say when you have one.

    How come you don't just get a job that pays millions?
    Who says it's easy? If you have no choice, then you accept your employer's terms until you can move on.

    There are millions of retail jobs. And millions more who have no job at all. If you fill every job opening in the country, you're still left will millions of unemployed people.
    Aside from the mentally and physically challenged...why cant they get jobs? And I dont mean to disrespect the challenged....because they also manage to get jobs.
