White House: Supreme Court jeopardizes the health of women with Hobby Lobby ruling
The U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling that some business owners are not required to provide birth control coverage to employees puts women’s health at risk, the White House said on Monday, and called on Congress to make contraception widely available.

REMINDER: Birth control prevents abortions, unlike conservatives.- LOLGOP

The World Is A Safer Place Without Saddam

Think it's tough to explain to Americans how popular soccer is? Imagine telling foreigners there are Americans who'd vote for another Bush.- LOLGOP

Bush Mercenary Effect
Newly disclosed documents show that a senior Blackwater employee stymied an investigation into the security contractor’s operations in Iraq by threatening to kill a State Department investigator, The New York Times reported. The documents, which included a memo from Aug. 31, 2007, raised questions about whether increased governmental oversight could have prevented the deaths of 17 Iraqi civilians killed by Blackwater contractors on Sept. 16, 2007, in Nisour Square, Baghdad.

This means its okay for me to kick a Supreme Court Justice right in the shin because my religion considers punishing stupidity a sacrament.- Will Durst Tweet

Conservatives spread fear that immigration reform could lead to more soccer.- LOLGOP

Republican Shenanigans

Tea Party Recruitment Failure
The chairman of the Mississippi Federation of College Republicans (MFCR) said on Monday that he had resigned, and was in the process of switching his party affiliation to Democrat because of the extremism of Tea Party members.

There's no way the GOP could ever look back and regret killing immigration reform & siding with men who want to deny birth control coverage.- LOLGOP

Rock The Voter News

Newt Gingrich can now object to your birth control coverage on moral grounds. Rush Limbaugh. Donald Trump. 

On moral grounds. - LOLGOP



Justice Ruth Bader Socks It To Chief Justice Roberts
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg said the ruling on the Hobby Lobby case was based on a misreading of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and would likely open the door to a host of unintended consequences.

“Little doubt that RFRA claims will proliferate, for the Court’s expansive notion of corporate personhood – combined with its other errors in construing RFRA – invites for-profit entities to seek religion-based exemptions from regulations they deem offensive to their faith,” she wrote.

Thanks to Justice Alito and George W. Bush, we'll soon find out all kinds of weird things our boss' think their religions believe.- LOLGOP

And The Supreme Court Next Act: Rules Against Unions
 The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday dealt a setback to unions by ruling that in-home care workers in Illinois who are paid by the state are not similar enough to full-fledged government employees to be compelled to pay union dues.

A big movie opened. "Transformers: Age of Extinction." You know, the Transformers — they transform. They are robots in disguise. I don't know if it will do well. After all these World Cup games, Americans can't handle any more excitement.- Craig Ferguson
