Especially with as much money and hardware bamster sends them.
January 4, 2013 at 6:59pm
We shop there.
Bamster is ramping up. Soon, you and I will all be forced to make this choice…either follow God, or follow the government.
If you don’t believe in God, fine…your choice. But some do…our choice.
Why should anyone be forced to do something that goes against their religion? You who are criticizing Hobby Lobby don’t get all uppity when ********* have their religious exceptions, why not?
Oh, and by the way…the obamacare bill specifically addresses ********* and exempts them from obamacare. Is that okay with you who hate someone exercising their rights of choice? If so,why is it okay for them not to be forced into complying with obamacare, and Hobby Lobby is being forced?
Is it true that the Amish and Muslims are exempt from all of Obamacare?
"Is it true that the Amish and Muslims are exempt from all of Obamacare?"
Their houses of worship? Yes, the same as all Christian churches are. Businesses owned or operated by Muslims? No, they do not have an exemption. Amish businesses? Only Old Older Amish is mentioned as a specific exemption. So, if you find an Amish hardware business with more than 50 employees, perhaps.
The individuals? No, Muslims are not exempt and need to carry insurance. In Amish sects, as said above, only Old Order Amish is exempt.
@Locked Regarding religious exemptions, folks are required to submit an application for exemption, then it is evaluated by the DHHS staff and the individual is notified of the decision. I would expect them to be somewhat reasonable regarding the Amish. Then again, "reasonable" is not an adjective to be applied toward many government entities. The potential is there for rejection by the DHHS. When the government has the power to stand as judge regarding your religious freedom and conscience, that is the start of a dictatorial system that I believe most of us would not want to see in this country... Is this the fundamental transformation that was promised 4 years ago?
We are all exempt from Obamacare because its unconstitutional, despite what John Roberts or anyone else thinks.
The Supremes are not the final arbiter of the Constitution. This is a fallacy and a fraud. We are a free people. We run them, not the other way around.
"The Supremes are not the final arbiter of the Constitution."
Since Marbury V. Madison, the SCotUS is indeed the final arbiter of the Constitution. If you don't like how the country has run for over 200 years (or somehow think it has run differently), then you should suggest an alternative or seek additional information about history.
A business shouldn't have a stand on social issues. Period.

You all realize we will be forced to that decision too, right? I mean the one where we are “offered” the choice of paying for Obamacare along with taxpayer funded abortion and all, or having your bank accounts, refunds, property, etc. seized as payment for the penalty of not buying the government health care plan.
Take your grievance to your STATE government! The "STATES" (not We the People) created the federal government. Demand that your STATE government take back control of the agent it created.
What will Obama do when "federal enforcers" are met by State and local Police Officers who deny them any authority to enforce their edict? Does anyone know how many "MILLION" State and local Police Officers there are in America? Sheriff Joe Arpio of Arizona has already PROVED what they can do to stop the "fed" in its tracks and he's just ONE COUNTY SHERIFF!!!

This is disgraceful.
The doctor or dentist or whatever he is showed his character. The judges should have thrown this case out on its’ face.

Merry Christmas all!
I have suggested on a few times that I have posted that we as the citizenry should flood their offices.
I know people write, call etc., but I mean seriously ramp it up and make it a flood that does not stop. Make it so they don’t have a choice.
I write, call, tell my neighbors, send more letters, e-mail and call some more.
Guys, they look at you as their funding source, and Obama, Reid and the other government agencies are a weapon to be wielded against you. That is what they believe.
Most of the people on here believe in the precepts of Christianity (notice I said precepts), but we are not standing up and saying enough!
We have to flood them. It will only get worse and on an exponentially faster pace unless we turn in to a tidal wave and very quickly.
You have to start kicking up dust and do so at every turn…permits for building a shed on your property, taxes for health care, vehicle registration, you have no real freedom now.
I believe in my fellow countrymen, and I believe that we will not let liberty fade into the darkness of history.
Pray yes, but do not forget that we are also stewards of what we have been given…that means we will be held accountable if we lose the gift of freedom.
I believe. I will not give up. I will not stop.

No smart phones, no smart TV’s. Internet service is all I have and that is still too invasive for my taste.
Shut off satellite, and quit buying renting videos and movies. We homeschool and daughter just graduated 1 year early with 3.9gpa.
Unplug and find ways to opt out of society as it is being fed to you.
It is worse than many could even guess.
October 28, 2012 at 8:09pm
What are we supposed to do when the world is obviously taking aim at us?
Nothing? Be tolerant little Americans?
I think not. Saudi can go to the same place every other Muslim who wants to push their belief system on us. I am writing and calling my congressmen and senators, our U.N. Ambassador (don’t know how much good that will do) and the Saudi embassy and the saudi contacts inside the U.N.
Again, folks, if your government isn’t going to act like they are supposed to, you and I better or you will lose your freedom.

I am upset about a U.N. office anywhere close to our polling stations, also.
I read the posts from people here – the majority of whom are patriots, and believe in our constitution and the Republic of the United States – but I have to put the question out there, is anyone here burning the phone lines up or sending certified letters to the senators, congressmen, mayors, city councils, etc.?
I will be calling the U.N. office tomorrow, as many times as it takes to find out exacrtly where they will be sending these people.
Then, I will be sending letters and calling as many people as I can OVER and OVER again to put pressure on them.
We all have to do that. Don’t wait for election day! By then it is too late.
Start now, let them know by hundreds of thousands of people reaching into their little worlds inside state, city, county and federal government as well as the offices of the U.N., which has no authority here.
Tell them over and over that if we see any of them at our polling stations, they will be considered intefering with an election system which has been adopted by the CITIZENS of America.
We have to start now. They are, but if we can overwhelm them now, before election day it will be clear that we aren’t going to give up.

You argue against using public funds…okay, then why is it now a federal law that I am required to buy contraception for people whom I can not control. They make their own decisions about their sexual conduct and I am supposed to pay for it?
I am public and those are my funds. Oh yeah, talk to us about how we should pay to kill all those babies in the womb because somebody doesn’t want the responsibility of a child.
Again, public funds to push someone else’s viewpoint.
Only, cheerleaders aren’t forcing people to do or not do anything.
Oh, and Muslims? Their stated goal is to destroy everything you have in this country, force you to convert or pay a tax for not practicing islam (no capital letter) and probably behead your infadel body – so unless you do some more research to “argue intelligently”, you probably shouldn’t talk down someone’s beliefs.
Should government tax people to pay for birth control? Absolutely not. A person's sexual escapades are not my financial responsibility, and neither are the results of their sexual escapades.
BTW, I am pro-life, but NOT pro-government stealing from us. Or if they are going to do it anyway, then we should have the freedom to not pay the portion of our taxes that go to fund programs or whatever we find morally repugnant. If social welfare is 33% of the budget, and I believe social welfare to be a bastion of slavery, then I should be able to reduce refuse paying 33% of my taxes without being caged for it. I advocate liberty in the truest sense of the word, and if you're curious about it, I'll be glad to explain it in greater detail.
I don't want Islam, Judaism, Catholicism or any religion, so please don't make the errant assumption that as an atheist I am either secretly a Satan worshipper or Muslim sympathizer. I was arguing about them exercising their freedom of expression... kind of as a thought experiment to see how staunchly the Christians would support the rights of a person holding a sign that said Allahu Akbar at their Texas football game. That's what this legal decision allowed, you know? And if a Muslim does it and gets attacked, the attackers will be tried for assault under hate crime statutes. Did any of y'all ever think of this?
If the school did not endorse it, and it was a unanimous decision on the part of the cheerleaders, then they have the right to express their beliefs. It's freedom of religion, not freedom from it.
Learn to read your pocket Constittion, Chris.

About 2 years ago, we made the decision to shut off the TV. This is not a call to boycott or anything like that, but have you really sat down and watched the crap your TV vomits into your living room?
These TV shows are how they keep their lights on.
There are so many places to get entertainment that isn’t about gays or some other made up “right” couched in sit-com clothing.
We already know the media lies, and is more than biased….they deliberately try to hide things from us. Why would I spend any of my time on any item these networks produce. Whether it is news or entertainment, our family tries very hard to do things that will involve family and limit the amount of money or even ratings they would other wise receive from us as a viewer.

I posted earlier…it may show up, so apologize about redundancy if it does…
Take your kids out of the public schools. Period. There doesn’t have to be a bunch of hoopla. Just don’t participate. The problem is that people will not do that.
How many people posting here would do that? We did. Our kid now has a 3.9 gpa and will graduate a year early.
We took our girls out of their private school in the middle of the week! The administration decided to start using public school curriculum to save money!!! A lot of private schools do this. That was it! Why was I paying tuition for a public school indoctrination??? It's so important to watch what curriculum your school is using. Homeschooling has been a God send. It has been so wonderful to watch our girls grow into Godly young women. My youngest daughter who was struggling in school skipped a grade after 1 year of homeschooling. I do not have a degree in education, I'm just a mom who loves her girls enough to raise them and teach them myself. ANYONE CAN DO IT!!!

About 7 years ago, we took our kids out of public school. We did it for the reasons being illustrated by this article.
Our daughter is now 17, will be graduating high school with a 3.9. She will be graduating a year early, and she is interning at an attorney friend of ours.
She has an appointment in October with a recruiter from Hillsdale.
Do your reearch. There are plenty of good choices for how to get your kid out of the public cess pools.
Otherwise, nothing will change folks.
Press the press...You are spot on. Tonly way to insure that this is not taught to your children is to pull them out of the public schools. This is not going to stop. Starve the beast. When you take your kids out, the school looses funding and you have a say in what they are learning. HOMESCHOOL!!!

An earlier post said something about getting ready for civil war…
I do not believe that should be a goal of us, the rightful owners and citizens of the only republic that has known any amount of freedom for its’ citizenry in the history of mankind. However, we MUST do more than rail back and forth on these sites. These sites are great for keeping us informed. We should let our opinions be known.
But we must be careful that we do not become filled with “revenge minded” tactics like the left. We are better, and we are stronger. We are Americans.

Everything I needed to learn about Islam, I got on 9-11-2001.
Since then, we have NASA being tasked with not space exploration, but reaching out to the muslime community. Our president, the DOJ, State Dept., and DHS (Napolitano) are allowing known terrorists – another word for terrorist is muslime – into our White House.
It is a good thing I am not the president. Obama, pay attention…
1. Withdraw all American personnel, equipment, material, food and financial support from any country who has been overrunning our embassies.
2. Allow foreign dignitaries from those countries 12 hours to leave the U.S.
3. Suspend the rules of engagement until the proper authorities (i.e. our military leaders) can review and institute new rules of engagement so our personnel are safe, and most of all respected and feared.
4. Fire Bernanke, and seek an injunction against the Fed to halt further deterioration of our currency because of Q.E. 3.
5. Seek censure against all U.S. Senators and Congresspeople who have been receiving and accepting funding by socialist, communist and muslim organizations for these organizations ALL seek to overthrow the U.S. of A. If you are a sitting Senator or Congress person, you are violating your oath to protect and preserve the Republic by accepting any support or serving these entities in any way.
6. Defund and eliminate the Dept. of Ed., EPA, HHS, TSA and the new Consumer Protection Bureau.
I'm wondering if the rest of the world believes our religion is the religion of peace. Looking at how many wars we're participating in, how many people we kill on a daily basis with drone attacks, are we any better then they are?
As soon as the world order guys give the go ahead it will happen.....It is what is needed to usher in the world government....and if not that the world currency will surely come out of all this....
@ American Soldier- the answer is no we are not any better (as to our nation); but I have to say that our involvement in all that is happening has nothing to do with the American religious faith. I would rather say a serious lack of it. We are not involved in these conflicts for religious reasons. Do you think that the DOD, who just honored gay's in our military are religious? We are a nation run by mamon worshipers, who could care less about religion or the average person on the street, including those serving in our armed forces. It is about those who are calling the shots who placate to political want-to-be's who do their bidding for a seat at the table. It is called crony capitalism, and power grabbing. Both money and power coming together to do whatever they want, who worship a different god (many believing they are god), because they control everything. Christians are not leading the charge in this country, we are afflicted and ridiculed at every chance (thank God I am worthy to be beaten for his name sake). I will loose my life if necessary but will hold fast to my faith to my Lord and Savior who is Jesus Christ. We have many millions of people who are not Christian and are evil; walking in the ways of the world, caring only about themselves. Many claiming to be Christians but are far from it. Just as it has been written. I hope you are saved, and love the Lord with all your heart, all your mind and all your soul. God bless you.
