Hi RJJ-I keep missing you-Lots of Trolls out on this one..more than usual it seems.
I did read a different article on this law that I did not agree with, but it did beg a couple of questions. I posted them on another story but basiclly this-How far does a law like this go?
The 1 example that really made me think was the anethesiologist withholding /refusing to administer drugs to a person w/a defect because they believed birth defects were God’s punishment. No problem except if it was a rural hospital or the only hospital your insurance provided coverage. AND “Do No Harm” doesn’t apply any more than the Cardiologist who refused to put a stent in Captain Bill when he was receiving chemo because the Cardiologist said he “didn’t treat dying people.” (He died later and from something different than what this man was referring to.)
I support this law. The courts have taken away our rights to faith, but I still have that niggling little question of how far does it go? And I also worry about the definition as it applies to “faith.” Do Satan, Sun, tires, money or any “thing or being” worshipers have the same beliefs & faith rights deemed to Christians and Jews? Who decides? The courts so recklessly have taken away ALL our faith rights. Now who is going to protect them and how? And who is to be protected? Just asking.

This law does offer a much needed “fix” for those choosing to follow their faith, and to do so without penalty, i.e. not baking a cake or taking photographs for same-sex marriages. The family owned bakery in Oregon that is now defunct is a classic example of the courts stripping personal rights to faith. The penalty was senseless, petty, and cruel. Further, it was unnecessary. The couple won no victory-they closed a business down, one they had done business with, many times before. This incident gave rise to laws like this.
However, this law can pose questions and my questions are “What is a belief or faith?” and “Where does it stop?” Does it legitimately include a Catholic pharmacist who refuses to fill a birth control prescription because the Catholic church opposes chemical or other birth control? Or what about an anesthesiologist who refuses to administer the drugs to a person with an infirmity because he/she believes birth defects are punishments from God? Yes one can go elsewhere, but the scenario could be in a rural setting, or insurance may only cover that hospital; the point is where or does it stop?
Are Scientology, Satan, Sun, Tires, money, worshipers of any item, thing, or being defined as “faith” the same as the faith of Christians or Jews? While I loathe the courts for removing our rights, I also see the dilemma of defining faith and where or if this law covers everything. Just wondering.
You raise a good point here. If I were the King of the USA I would point to our constitution and say religious freedom MUST be upheld and long as it doesn't cause direct harm to others such as human sacrifices and such since it must apply to the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness clause. The constitution does not say that freedom of religion only applies to the Christian Faith or the Jewish or the Muslim faith. So in answer to your question a Catholic Pharmacist would be allowed to not give out birth control. MAXIMUM freedom. If you have a religious objection to something, you would not be forced by anyone to go against that. Now with that freedom also come MAXIMUM responsibility. So if people elected to go somewhere else to buy a cake and you go out of business well so be it. Or people go to a different Pharmacy or buy all their drugs on-line and you lose business, well so be it.
If you worship the sun ok, worship the sun, but if the sun tells you to kill your neighbor, that violates the constitution. We HAVE to stop this nonsense of taking away peoples freedom to practice their religion just because we disagree with it. THAT is tyranny!
So you are saying Governor Pence is a bald-faced liar? Because if anything he has said in the last two days has any meaning at all, it is that this law was never intended to give legal cover to whackadoos who think that God told them to violate local civil rights statutes, no, uh uh, no way, that's not what it is about at all, where did you ever get that idea? So, if the law really would offer a fix to business owners who refuse to serve gay customers, that would mean that Governor Pence is a mealy-mouthed, hypocritical dirtbag.

I guess you don’t like snark.

With their high skills & job backgrounds, I am sure the 5MILLION ILLEGALS Obama has now made legal will easily find jobs in these professions.
Did you even look at the map or read the article? Walmart is the largest employer in 20 States.

Obama will read this Poll as The Palestinians want ME as their President, and they want to be our 58th State. I’ll just Pen an Executive Order or Action-Congress won’t do anything anyway-and I’ll give them all Social Security Cards, Tax Credits and they can vote Democratic in 2016.
Jeh “Duh” Johnson sounds English but he’s Muslim. I thought being Muslim was a requirement for being appointed by Obama-al-Hussein? I could be wrong though Gonzo. All those Muslims supposedly working for him COULD be pretend ones. Ya think?

I suppose finding my other black leather glove is probably clear out of the question?
We've been asking that for some time about Oby-one, still no answer.

Good Morning RJJ-Most of us know for certain there are TWO sets of rules-#1 is for the Democrats which says WE can do whatever we damn well please! #2 is for the GOPs which says GOP can’t do anything that the Democrats will not whine, whinge, or cry about. THERE-that about says it all.
The Democrats will ALWAYS make excuses, project unrealistic outcomes, always LIE, and DENY every mistake, which is about 99.99% of everything they do. The .01% is when they absolutely hit a brick wall and the above hits FAIL.
I’m racking my brain trying to remember something the Democrats admitted being wrong about, but haven’t been able to come up with anything at the moment. Perhaps you can assist me. Bay of Pigs…no that was somebody else’s fault…the CIA?

JACOB, JACOB, JACOB–How COULD you suggest something so, so, so practical??? Something that E-V-E-R-Y government agency should be FORCED to do or not get one more penny until they do; INCLUDING those little Congressmen and women who LOVE to tax us AND Obozo. Your suggestion/comment is so appropriate that it will NEVER see the light of day unless perhaps, We The People refuse to give them one more damn dime until they do. BUT Obozo or the next Dem will just keep on printing, and printing, and pr….

Obama has NO interest in maintaining a relationship w/Israel. His threat 2 shoot down Israel’s jets displays his true motives-Obama WANTS Iran to get a nuke-He wants Iran 2 be the threat in the Middle East-He wants Iran to be part of the Nuke coalition because it fits into his global domination plans.
Obama is the most transparent untransparent non-Leader the USA has ever had. Those that voted for him, unfortunately, have placed this country in Hell. I would say they got exactly what they deserved, HOWEVER, their votes got WE NON-OBAMA VOTERS what we did NOT deserve..or did we?
The only thing we can do now is to follow Louie Gohmert’s words of advise- continually “ride” our Representative and Senators-BOTH parties and tell them WHAT we want-over and over again-get our friends and neighbors to “ride them” also. Remind them that “we put them there and we can take them out.”
If we do NOT do this and do nothing, then we have no one to blame but ourselves. It so often feels futile to keep riding them, but not doing so make futility a reality. I know I sound like a broken record, but we just canNOT give up..not for ourselves, our children, or for our grandchildren. I will NOT let that son of a …. completely destroy what’s left of our country. I still love the USA, our flag, and what we stand for. The “POO” generation cannot win..NOR can the Dems. The USA is only as strong as We The People and WTP must stand for our Constitution.

Every one has a “NOT funny” point. This one was “NOT” funny for many..it WAS funny for others. Humor is individual. SNL has never had an anything is “sacred” approach. They have hit almost everything with both gloves..using humor. Some have fallen flat..some have been extremely successful. SNL, in my humble opinion, is the ONLY thing on NBC that even comes close to “taking on” the lilly black or white, left, idealist, progressive thinking of the network. I will give them that. Although they are not near as re-freshingly funny as they used to be.
Howdy Mscaptbilly, Well said since I started watching it after missing but hearing about the 1st episode. It used to be funny to me then, but I plead the fifth since I was rather youthful at the time. Still thought this one was funny though, although not exactly tasteful.

Call the GOP Senators & Reps NOW. Tells them do NOT pass the clean Bill. It is imperative the more people who call the better the chance of keeping them from going forward. Perhaps it will not stop them, but it is better to try than to sit back and only complain!
 February 25, 2015 at 10:50am
Call your Senators & Representatives. Tell them to vote NO on a clean Bill for DHS. Tell the Senators to enact the Nuclear Option. Pass the damn thing. Let Obama Veto it & TAKE THE HEAT. Tell The GOP We put you there & We can take you out. This is more than shutting down DHS which it will NOT. This is about preserving the Constitution and our core. They do listen if enough people push. PUSH!

Many years ago, the wife of a member of the orchestra at the Miss Kansas Pagent gave birth to a baby, not knowing she was pregnant. She was obese and her menustral cycle was not only irregular, it was virtually non-existant. We Chaperones and Pagent Officials made donations to buy just the basics, as they had NOTHING to bring the baby home to. This was the first time I or all of us had ever heard of such a thing, and we all were leary that it could happen.
However, since that time, untold numbers of incidents have been and are reported, and it is NOT uncommon. The old “walk a mile in her mocassins” adage certainly applies here.
