Hobby Lobby To Defy ObamaCare's Abortifacient Requirement

I have heard from numerous Media bien pensants that if one's intentions are good, and in the public interest, you get to ignore the law.

n attorney for Hobby Lobby Stores said Thursday that the arts and crafts chain plans to defy a federal mandate requiring it to offer employees health coverage that includes access to the morning-after pill, despite risking potential fines of up to $1.3 million per day.

Hobby Lobby and religious book-seller Mardel Inc., which are owned by the same conservative Christian family, are suing to block part of the federal health care law that requires employee health-care plans to provide insurance coverage for the morning-after pill and similar emergency contraception pills.

The companies claim the mandate violates the religious beliefs of their owners. They say the morning-after pill is tantamount to abortion because it can prevent a fertilized egg from becoming implanted in a woman's womb.

5 So in Obama's America, an employer is punished for not paying for his female employees' abortions. Yet another reason I shelved my plans to open up a business in 2013. This shit is great for economic growth, I'm told.

So go Hobby Lobby... and anyone else who defies the blood-sucking Leviathan known as D.C.

They're very similar to a Joann Fabric or Michael's. A variety of crafting materials for everything from jewelry making to baking to sewing to fine arts.

32 No I did not say "It's just a position."
I said, it's the juxtaposition that's so jarring.
Who ta hell even connected segz-ual licentiousness with an arts and craft store?
Frankly, Michael's was a lousy place to pick up chicks. I almost scored a coupla times at JoAnn Fabrics, but dude, fish in a barrel. Like being th only guy at a baby shower. It just happens.

My buddy, who spare-time apprenticed with an upholsterer so he could make his own race-car seats? And learned to run a HD sewing machine, called a serger? More ass than the afore-mentioned race-car seat. He, like, serged. Zig-zag.

Will someone posit the notion that craft artisans, with all their coat-hanger-bending mad skillsetz, are so good at backroom abortions, that the prevention point is "mute"? Because, the civility rules being what they are, that's gotta happen.

41 Speaking of defying, if the East Coast gang/teamsters shut down the ports next month, estimate are that it'll collectively cost $1 billion/day. So, the affected companies (thousands?) should follow the Ford Pinto model -- hire someone to shoot all the teamsters. It'll certainly cost less than $1 billion/day. See, I'm not a right-wing religious [insert ad homs] so I can say that, esp. because I mean well.

48 Silly Ace. Obama is the guardian of civil rights in America. Of course you have freedom of conscience in the United States. You have the freedom of conscience to believe what the government tells you to believe. Our vigilant 3rd estate also supports your freedom of conscience to believe in whatever leftist fad the media is pursuing like abortion, euthanasia, or forced sterilization of undesirables. The point is the left is always right and you have freedom to follow their ideals. Anything else should be against the law. That my friend is the truest freedom of all.

The Hobby Lobby is obviously interested in high capacity hobbies. I'm afraid this does not qualify for an exemption to Obamacare, my plan that I intend for the health and welfare of all Americans, especially the sexually promiscuous, much like my own dear departed mother.
The Hobby Lobby will not be able to stop the march of progress and will be forced to provide abortifacients to their employees. Because that's freedom and I say so.

If you really can't stand to pick up a gift card for someone with a hobby, or some holiday decorations, or a manly hobby item like a model rocket or a Pinewood Derby kit to drop off with your nearest Cub Scout Pack, you can at least satisfy your sweet tooth there.

71 The strategy to overturn the law is simple:

1. Breed contempt for unpopular laws by willfully breaking them instead of changing them by the mechanisms that exist for doing so.

2. Observe that most don't care/ remain willfully ignorant of the existent mechanisms.

3. For those that do care, cover yourself in "civil rights" moralism and claim that "unjust" laws are not really laws and can be broken with impunity and/or that the existent mechanism is biased/too slow/not enough.

4. Now you can break any law so long as it's "unjust".

5. Own the media.

6. Declare the county's entire legal basis as "unjust".

7. Presto: Your revolution is justified.

Jane- I read your comments last night but it was on an older thread. I offer my heartfelt sympathies that you had to spend Christmas with Obamalots! I have cousins that are like that, I don't call them anymore.
I almost got into a fight at a wake in September 2008 over the JEF and one of my cousins. Early in the year they "hated" him and wanted Hillary. We all know what happened and they just loved him. One couple later changed their minds and planned on leaving dem party and registering as unenrolled here. I'm not sure if they did, I'm sure they didn't.

I have them in my family but cousin and ex sister in laws, I don't call them often now. Why waste my breath?

90 Hmmm.... Interesting question though....

Under what authority can a Fine be imposed? It was supposedly written into the bill that Fines would NOT be Law Enforcment issues...

Heck, the EPA got slapped down by the Supremes for imposing Fines on people without giving them their day in Court...

If its not a Tax, its a Bill of Attainder...

If it IS a Tax... then its a FURTHER Tax for using your Right to Freedom of Religion?

What is the Legal Rationale for the Enforcement Mechanism? Under what Constitutional Power can Congress Enforce it?

The only way that would work, is if they are single and didn't have any female family members that they were claiming as dependents on their insurance coverage.

They just haven't covered abortion or birth control costs.

The problem is that the High Court ruled it's a tax, and as a tax it is enforceable by the IRS. You know: that organization that has more lawyers and federal agents than they have tax processors? Their methodology is to use their statutory authority of asset seizure and forfeiture to grab everything first, then apply fines and penalties while the case winds its way through the U.S. Tax Court, a special court set up just for hearing tax cases. No one ever wins before the Tax Court. Hobby Lobby will be out of business before you know it.

The owner of HL took over the closed Bradford College here in my neck of the woods and restored the crumbling buildings. It's now Zion Bible College, a place that fosters missionaries and evangelization. Protestants, so not my cup of tea, but good neighbors.

175 I would argue that Citizens United v. Federal Elections Commision found corporations to be individuals with 1st Amendment rights to free speech. Since freedom of religion is also a 1st Amendment right, I don't believe you can separate the two and say corporations have the right to free speech but not to freedom of religion. Why is nobody arguing this?
Posted by: Stacy M at December 28, 2012 01:14 PM (jJMNa)


Because the left hates the Citizens United verdict, thus that line of reasoning would go nowhere in the left-leaning SCOTUS. Not because it's incorrect, but because they'll block up their ears and refuse to hear it.

We did one at work as a team building exercise. I was accused by some of cheating, since the rules didn't state where the starter mechanism had to align with the car (front, middle or back). So I put the weight to the front and a slot in the middle of the car that engaged with the starting mechanism. That way the car would start ahead of all the others by a couple of inches. The idea worked fine on the slope but when it hit the flat and I hadn't built as much momentum for that section. I didn't win but at least I stirred up some fun.

253 I know this is a stupid question, but I'm stilled all goofed up onpain meds, but why can't Hobby Lobby get an exemption like all those others did?

It's too bad that the unequal application of a law that everybody is supposed to obey isn't a disqualifier for OCare. I'd like to hear the Official Explanation for why all the other thousands of organizations were able to get a waiver and HL couldn't (assuming that they did apply for one, that is).

You mean they don't just GIVE money to poor people? They actually show them how to be self-sustaining, and then give them an outlet to market their wares? What the FUCK is wrong with these people!

I bet they beat the natives over the head with a huge Bible bound in human skin while they do it, too!

258 Question is...would that satisfy the O-Care Law?
Posted by: wheatie at December 28, 2012 01:30 PM (K4wCe)



I don't know, actually. I'm guessing no because the workers would just use the money for ridiculous things like rent and car payments and food.

263 Worst smell in the world is rotting raw chicken that will haunt me for the rest of my life. Lazy fraternity brothers did not dump out the unused chickens from an ice chest days after our charity chicken BBQ.

To my great regret, I opened the ice chest. Post TraumaticRaw Chicken Syndrome. I'm thinking of applying for SSDI.

266 It's true that one can willfully violate the laws of this country with impunity, so long as one has good intentions and the deliberate lawlessness is in the public interest.

However, your "elites" in government and the MSM (but I repeat myself) are the sole arbiters of what constitutes "good intentions" and "in the public interest."

Therefore, unless Hobby Lobby is breaking the law for a purpose that is approved of by the Stalin/Mao/Chavez-worshipping progressive loons who run our federal government and its PR arm (known as the MSM), the violations will be prosecuted, and punished, to the full extent allowed by law.

267 One has to wonder how many woman work at Hobby World and have waited the day for the pills to be covered. When one thinks hobby world one thinks all employees are "the comic guy" like people. Most are single and have a train set taking up the basement complete with little trees. Not the type of person who would need anything in the way of birth control. Either for them or anyone else.

269 Good for them. Fire with fire. Love Hobby Lobby, I did half my Christmas shopping there this year. Great stores, great people. When we were redecorating our living room, we needed a pair of candle holders and couldn’t find exactly what we wanted anywhere. Finally we found exactly what we wanted at HL. But they only had one in stock and we wanted two. The manager told us she’d have one shipped in from another store and meanwhile hold the one in her office.

To be honest, I figured we’d never hear from them again. But only DAYS later the mgr. called to tell us she had both candle holders in her office and we could stop by anytime for them. All that service for an 8 dollar item. Hobby Lobby rules!

271 I do have a hobby business on the side, and the little money I make from it has saved my @ss on multiple occaisions when there has been too much month and not enough money. You know, when you've managed to hang onto your job but there's been no raise in 4 years, and food and fuel and health insurance eat into your paycheck with astonishing speed.

When I lived in Athens, GA, HL was 10 minutes down the street and I went at least once a week. They are well organized and always have a sale going on. Generally 50% off supplies. I stocked up like crazy before I mOved to Wyoming I was afraid I'd never see another HL but they have one in Cheyenne and one in Ft. Collins, and I go 'to town' at least once a month and usually stop there, so I'm still supporting them and they are still supporting me, just not as much. O'Barky's illegitimate administration will do their best to squash them. They do too much good for too many people, they worked hard and become very successful, and that's against HIS religion.

Abortion isn't just a political issue; it can also be a religious
one. In which case, forcing employers to pay for abortion-causing drugs
violates their freedom and practice of religion, a Constitutional right.
If you agree, make your voice heard and exempt companies like Hobby Lobby from the healthcare mandate.
