Skip to comments.Shameless smear of the supremes (stupid libs get hoisted on their own petard)

.....the USSCs 5-4 decision in the Hobby Lobby case ...held that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act forbids forcing contraceptive coverage its owners object to on religious grounds (that act as abortifacients).
Sen. Harry Reid (Dem-Nev), displaying his unfailing instinct for the inane, tweeted, Its time that five men on the Supreme Court stop deciding what happens to women......he seems to believe that the court was deliberating The Fate of Womens Freedom in the US. WH Press Secy Josh Earnest said Pres Obama believes women should make personal health-care decisions for themselves, rather than their bosses deciding for them. Taking this non sequitur and running with it, Sen. Patty Murray (Dem-Wash) opined that the decision takes us closer to a time in history when women had no choice and no voice.
The left cant get its head around the idea that the law or the Constitution sometimes limits the means whereby it seeks to achieve its ends. The 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, passed with large bipartisan majorities, creating a broad protection for religious liberty.....ergo, that govt cant create a substantial burden on someones exercise of religion unless it is using the least restrictive means of furthering a compelling government interest. Surely, if liberal lions Ted Kennedy and then-Pres Bill Clinton had foreseen how the act would eventually get in the way of the lefts coercive cultural agenda, they never wouldve supported it in the first place.

In true Texas-style, Wendy assertively warned guys what could happen if they dared approach womyn w/ (horrors) an unsheathed penis.
“US. WH Press Secy Josh Earnest said Pres Obama believes women should make personal health-care decisions for themselves, rather than their bosses deciding for them.
But they will force them to pay? LOL!
Of all the hypocritcal arguments, this takes takes brassiness to another level.
Tweet back to Harry -its time for 1 man and his minions to stop deciding the fate of all Americans
Should all the men in Congress stop deciding what happens to women also? How about the President too? What do you say Mr Reid?
It’s “we, the people”, not “we, the womyn”. Rights, are rights, the gender of the judges has nothing to do with interpreting the Constitution. Justice, after all, should be blind to be fair.
Its time that five men on the Supreme Court stop deciding what happens to women......
Roe V Wade, the irony...
You are exactly right. While the Dems, Obama and Reid in particular want the SCOTUS to decide based on polls, public opinion and other “facts” , it is SCOTUS’s job to decide based on the Constitution. Even the liberal justice’s dissenting opinion was based on feelings and strawmen rather than the Constitution. By definition, that position is the rule of man, not the rule of law.
The cherry picking is soooo transparent.
Hobby Lobby’s Insurance has no problem with providing 16 out of 20 Birth Control Pills. These are the pills that contain estrogen, progesterone and other ingredients that prevent conception or implantation. They also provide coverage for Condoms, spermicides, and other traditional methods of birth Control.
What they do NOT cover are 4 out of the twenty birth control pills that are on the market. These four are abortifacients. They are also known as the “Morning After Pills”. There is also an inter-uterine device that they do not cover because it causes abortions. Contraception is NOT the issue. However, nearly all the news outlets are reporting that Hobby Lobby is denying women access to Birth control. That is just NOT TRUE.
First it comes as a shock that this vengeful, lawless individual actually "believes" in anything. And now we hear the Father of Freebies is trying to figure out how he can stick the rest of w/ other people's b/c bills.
Right——one news clip had ecstatic Obama praising the USSC after they decided in his favor WRT Obamacare. They decided the issue he asserted.
Now he says they’re bums b/c they ruled against him WRT b/c.
Somebody needs to explain to the “constitutional scholar” that this is how the system works in a republic.
Liberals do not understand, and do not agree with, the role of the courts within our system.
The role of the courts is to interpret laws when legal disputes arise, as to whether laws or regulations conflict with other laws, or the constitution.
Liberals believe that the role of the courts is to push the liberal agenda. Liberals are very happy when courts rule for liberal causes such as abortion or homosexual marriage. But a case such as Hobby Lobby causes hissy fits, as the court ruled against the liberal view of the case.
Can Harry Reid be any more disingenuous? He said that five men should not decide what happens to women? Really?
So, then, male judges can never rule on cases involving women, or “women’s issues” such as birth control?
An all male Supreme Court ruled for Roe Vs. Wade.
An all white Supreme Court handed down Brown vs. Board of Education and other civil rights era cases which struck down discriminatory laws against minorities.
But now, we’re supposed to be outraged that five men on the Supreme Court make a ruling, just because they are men.
Liberal justice Breyer, who is a man, voted the liberal way on the Hobby Lobby case. Does that matter to the likes of Harry Reid, in his condemnation of male Supreme Court justices???
It’s settled law. Get over it.
On that basis, I should never have to appear before a female judge.
Dingy Harry obviously didn’t consider the ramifications of his statement..
