Theres no better wisdom than received wisdom. And when it comes to parroting things shes heard from people she believes to be smarter than her which doesnt really narrow it down Lena Dunham is tops.
Take it away, genius!
Lena Dunham ✔ @lenadunham
Women's access to birth control should not be denied
because of their employer's religious beliefs.

This is true, in theory. Its also irrelevant, because thats not what just happened.
Lena Dunham is very stupid, but perhaps this analogy might find its way through that geologically thick skull:
Sean Davis @seanmdav
I'm kind of hungry for lunch, but my employer doesn't
buy my lunch for me. It gives me cash to buy food.
Which means I'm going to starve.

Do you get what hes saying here, Lena? An employer gives money to its employees for the work they do. Those employees can then spend that money on the things they want and need. Including, for the purposes of this example, birth control. These employees access to birth control has not been denied in any way. On the contrary, they can buy as much of it as they can afford, if they so choose.
Access not denied. At all.
This is just another moronic cause célèbre, like the Chick-fil-A nonsense. Lets just hope this one doesnt inspire another gunman to take matters into his own hands, like Floyd Lee Corkins tried to do. Thatd be the first Hobby Lobby story the media wouldnt want to cover.
(Hat tip: Twitchy)
Update: Awwww, dayum.
Speaker John Boehner ✔ @SpeakerBoehner

law the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, upheld

A stupid attitude is not a stupid aptitude. She’s not stupid, she has no respect for the truth, which she thinks is stupid. But we don’t want to make ad hominem attacks, which reduce our own respect for the truth.
I doubt she has had an actual opinion to give in a while now. She has an all-consuming agenda to push and that’s an entirely different thing.
this is like the Katy Perry thread. She was given a choice. Success or obscurity. She chose success and now must push the agenda to maintain it. Because actual talent won’t carry her.
But why must we see Lena naked, and not Katy?
SCOTUS agreed with Hobby Lobby that:
16 that prevent--OK.
4 that kill--Not OK.
To make you more receptive to homosexuality ;)
Agreed. So how is declining to pay for it "denying access"? Are they "denying her access" to food because they expect her to pay for it out of her paycheck? "Denying her access" to transportation because they don't confiscate part of her pay and decide what car she's going to buy with it?
There were 33 companies that petitioned SCOTUS. Hobby Lobby is just the one the libs are targeting.
“The court’s announcement on Tuesday confirmed that its decision did not apply only to the four modes of contraception which the plaintiffs considered a form of abortion. Companies objecting on religious grounds are not obligated to provide contraception coverage as part of the ACA at all.”
Lena Dunham speaks....I can now sleep well at night / S
That’ll do, pig.
Hey if it comes down to that pig or a dude... Choose celibacy ;)
>> Women’s access to birth control should not be denied because of their employer’s religious beliefs.
Hobby Lobby has assigned a chaperone to every employee. Any attempt to “access” an abortifacient is quickly denied by the chaperone.
Well, I guess the females who want contraception will have to head to Target and pony up the nine dollars or so.
You can bet on that! :)
I said the gay thing jokingly but in all seriousness, hollywood has been pushing a lot more boy-bodied females as the ideal of beauty. Seen many Maralyn bodies in Tinseltown lately? The Mad Men chick was a glaring exception and look at the press she got over it....then she was gone. And for a while now, Porn sites have mixed gay and straight porn.
It’s not a stretch to make me believe that naked pig women are being pushed to turn dudes off to women entirely. Sounds nuts, but fits the facts.
The blurring of lines continues apace.
