DETROIT — The founder of Domino´s Pizza is suing the federal government over mandatory contraception coverage in the new health care law.Tom Monaghan, a devout Roman Catholic, says contraception is not health care and instead is a "gravely immoral" practice. He´s a plaintiff in a lawsuit filed Friday in federal court, along with his Domino´s Farms, which runs an office park near Ann Arbor. Monaghan offers health insurance that excludes contraception and abortion for employees. The new law requires employers to offer insurance that includes contraception coverage or risk fines.

Lawsuits work incredibly well for socialist/fascist when socialist/fascist judges are in place. It has just the opposite affect when those that love and value freedom bring suits. And we have elected weak handed politicians that dupe us with ´conservative´ judges that adhere to the constitution only to find the Roberts of the world are shallow, superficial punks desperate to please their socialist/fascist masters. Lawsuits are for losers. Revolution is for a better country.

Keep suing! The point, imo, is the government has no right to tell private business what they must/must not cover. Could be birth control, abortion, or chiropractic.

Tom M´s efforts to stop being Fluked by Obama are admirable, but he is going to experience the wrath of Hussein for months, if not for years. IRS audits will become commonplace, as will OSHA, EEOC and ICE investigations. Tom can also expect problems with unions, from Teamsters who deliver goods to SEIU efforts to unionize Domino pizza employees. States controlled by Democrat governors will also add their regulatory muscle to make his life miserable.

Expect to see AP, CNN, NY Times and NBC stories about mistreatment of Domino employees, unclean kitchens, pizza´s carbon footprint and the unhealthy aspects of pizza. Tom and his company will hopefully win in court, but he should expect a struggle against Obama´s regulatory & PR tyranny.

Sue them without limit - to let the would-be dictators know that they are not supreme in this our Nation. And to #6: be of good cheer. Document meticulously all possible examples of revenge, violence, intimidation... and then sue some more while shouting from the rooftops about the thugs in "government" and their tactics. It is that or something much worse from them.

But #4 once the "camel´s nose was in the tent", with the government telling businesses they couldn´t allow smoking in their place of business, the government can & will do whatever they want. Don´t forget the low flush toilets that were foisted on the public, removing freon from the market, gas additives that can ruin engines & on & on with the "little" things to intrude into our daily lives. And for what? Control.....!!

Tom is no slouch - he started a law school, Ave Maria School of Law. Take heart, Tom may be our side´s best hope to beat the Obamacare monster.

Ave Maria School of Law was founded in 1999, and for the first nine years of its existence was located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The school currently has thirty-five professors including Robert Bork (former United States Supreme Court nominee rejected by the US Senate), several visiting professors, and eight esteemed legal writing professors. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia assisted Ave Maria School of Law leadership in developing the school´s curriculum, and in 1999 Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas delivered the school´s first annual Ave Maria Lecture.

Maybe Scalia and Thomas have given him some advice and this is their way of fighting back against Roberts´ misguided ruling on Obamacare.

Interesting note - Tom Monaghan sold his interest in Domino´s Pizza to - you guessed it - Bain Capital some years ago.

So poster #2, if you prefer another brand of delivery pizza, go ahead and order that tonight. Won´t make any difference to Tom, a true American patriot.

Go, Tom, go!

Monaghan puts his money where his mouth is. In addition to the Ave Maria School of Law, he has also endowed the Dominican Sisters who, from their motherhouse in Ann Arbor, teach in many schools across the country. These young, dedicated, joyful women (locally known as the "pizza nuns" and the "happy nuns") are part of one of the fastest-growing orders in the world. They are bringing the sorely needed good news of the God of love to the children of the world. Go Tom, and go "Happy Nuns"!

Unfortunately, one of the upsides of the conservative attack on Obamacare is that it feeds the #1 donation source for the Democrats, which is the Trial Lawyers Association. I don´t think this is a coincidence.
The Democrat Party that forced Obamacare into existence should be forced to pay all legal costs involved, as these cases are decided against the tyrants in DC.

Media and particularly cable news has never been as polarized as it is today. It’s also never been tilted more towards opinion and less toward objective reporting of hard news. As a result, trust in media has fallen to an all-time low. Reporters in particular are looked upon as dishonest brokers in the business, with Gallup showing only 20 percent of those polled finding journalists honest and ethical (that’s 65 percent lower than nurses, 50 percent lower than doctors and engineers). Solid investigative reporters are simply in short supply and demand. Why? Because with opinion programming so much cheaper to produce

Fox News host Megyn Kelly was shocked by Jenny McCarthy´s recent assertion that she wasn´t anti-vaccine in a Chicago Sun-Times op-ed and played a greatest hits montage of the “View” host´s many anti-vaccination statements over the years. “It´s really shocking to hear her now talk about how she actually says she´s pro-vaccine,” Kelly told contributor Dana Loesch. “Yeah!

These days, pretty much every story is really the same story: In Galway, at the National University of Ireland, a speaker who attempts to argue against the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) programme against Israel is shouted down with cries of ‘******g Zionist, *****ng *****s… Get the ***** off our campus.’ In California, Mozilla’s chief executive is forced to resign because he once made a political donation in support of the pre-revisionist definition of marriage.

WASHINGTON — In her darkest hour last fall, Kathleen Sebelius suffered one of the deepest cuts from an old family friend who accused her of “gross incompetence” over the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and demanded that she resign as secretary of health and human services. Now she is weighing revenge. Ms. Sebelius is considering entreaties from Democrats who want her to run against that old friend, Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas. Several Democrats said this week that Ms. Sebelius had been mentioned with growing frequency as someone who could wage a serious challenge to Mr. Roberts, 77, who is

Why You Should Be Sympathetic

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Under a ´Blood Moon´: First total lunar
eclipse of the year wows stargazers

The moon took on an eerie blood-red hue early Tuesday during the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, a celestial sight that wowed potentially millions of stargazers across North and South America. The total lunar eclipse of April 15 lasted about 3.5 hours between late Monday and early Tuesday, with the Earth´s shadow slowing darkening the face of the so-called "Blood Moon" in a jaw-dropping sight for stargazers willing to stay up extra late or rise super-early for the event. "Definitely worth the early wake-up call," skywatcher Brett Bonine of Arkansas told Space.com in an email.

Don Lemon filled in as a guest co-host on The View Monday, and right off the bat he faced questions about CNN’s near-nonstop MH370 coverage. Barbara Walters told him that CNN’s covered this “more than any other story than I can remember.” Lemon said, “I think you’re probably right, but the audience interest is there.” Walters brought up the ratings issue, to which Lemon responded, “It’s not just the ratings, but we’re giving––part of what our mission is to give the audience what they want.” He argued that it’s important to keep covering the missing plane for the sake of the

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.
