The Hobby Lobby
Backlash Hits Whole Foods

Daily Beast, by Abby Haglage

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/9/2014 7:37:57 PM

Whole Foods isn’t dropping contraception coverage for employees but nevertheless, it’s facing a Hobby Lobby backlash. By Wednesday afternoon, more than 7,000 people signed an online petition urging Whole Foods to stop carrying products from Eden Foods, one of the 82 companies trying to opt out of covering contraception in health insurance following the Supreme Court’s ruling. The letter asks Whole Foods, which carries more than 2,000 Eden Foods products, to stand up against companies like Eden who are fighting to deny their employees basic health care. “While individual-level boycotting of Eden Foods may not have

Comments:
If you want to see what real EVIL is, follow this story on the aftermath of the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court decision. The left can´t let it go because of the real sickness in their heart to see and grasp all things related to birth control as a right that is NOT guaranteed them.

The poor damn sure can´t shop at Whole Foods but I guess they work there and need someone to buy their "basic health care" for them.

By the way, everyone has health care in America. What some people don´t have, usually by choice, is health "insurance".

But this whole idea that people don´t have health "care" is nonsense.

And I´ll bet you lots of people could have bought health "insurance" but opted for a new car or chrome wheels instead. You could probably throw in pot, Colt 45 ML, movie tickets, lots of McNuggets, and a whole host of other things they needed a lot less than health insurance, too.

It´s all about choices. Of course, only married people really need contraceptives and only then if they don´t want children, or more children, and have no self control.

There is a free contraceptive out there, too. Just don´t do IT, and you won´t get preggy. Ha!

Whole Foods will be watching their bottom line, not their petitions. I will bet their sales go up over this. I would go out of my way to shop there after this!

Ladies, and I use that term loosely, the only thing being denied to Hobby Lobby employees is somebody else paying for their promiscuous behavior via abortion.

If you want all that stuff, pay for it yourself. If you are adult enough to run with the big dogs, you need to pay your own bill to do so.

Nobody is denying you anything. We are just tired of having to foot the bill for things that are against our conscience.

Same here, #1. Selecting Eden products at Whole Foods will become my new food shopping obsession. And watching the faces around the checkout counter as I enthusiastically respond "Yes!" when they ask if I found everything okay. "And what I didn´t find I can get at Hobby Lobby." (Just kidding about the last bit). Ha!

Talk about a rabid dog. The liberals led the lofo´s to think HL doesn´t pay for any BC vs certain ones.

Shouldn´t everyone be grateful to have a job, any job ? A job with health insurance ?

Everyday you get up and make choices. You can choose to work for HL or not.

Notice nobody goes after the groups that wanted to opt out of all insurance ?

It´s not so many people. It´s one, maybe two people. In their basements making the fax machine smoke. Most likely a young woman who had so many abortions even she can´t live with herself, and some pathetic schlep she sleeps with in exchange for some techie help.

US court orders son of Russian MP to
be held on computer hacking charges
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/15/2014 10:34:25 PM     Post Reply
Seattle - A US federal judge has ordered the son of a prominent Russian MP to remain in custody until his trial on computer hacking charges, after a prosecutor said evidence recovered from his laptop after his arrest in the Maldives gave new insights into the breadth of his activities. Roman Seleznev, 30, the son of Russian MP Valery Seleznev, appeared in US district court in Seattle, where he was indicted in 2011 on charges that involved hacking into computerised cash registers, stealing hundreds of thousands of credit card numbers and selling the data online for at least $2m. Seleznev faces similar but unrelated charges in Nevada.

Ukraine ‘partly destroys Russian

Ukraine says it destroyed much of a Russian convoy that entered the neighbouring country, but Russia insisted no military vehicles had crossed the border. “The majority of the vehicles were destroyed by the Ukrainian artillery at night,” Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko told British Prime Minister David Cameron over the phone, according to his office. Poroshenko said NATO and journalists from several newspapers confirmed Ukraine’s reports of the Russian incursion overnight on Thursday. The incident would be the first clash between regular troops from both countries and could mark a dangerous escalation in the conflict

Rick Perry indicted

A Travis County grand jury today indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two charges related to his effort last year to force District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign after her drunken driving arrest. Grand jurors charged Perry, 63, with abuse of official capacity, a first-degree felony, and coercion of a public official. The indictments stemmed from Perry’s threat last summer to withhold $7.2 million in state money from Lehmberg’s office unless she step down – a threat he later carried out by vetoing an appropriation in the state budget. The money was earmarked for the state’s Public Integrity Unit, which is housed in Lehmberg’s office. Perry’s veto forced

Iowa Senate hopeful Joni Ernst said she experienced sexual harassment in the military and would support a bill to remove investigations outside of the military’s chain of command. Ernst told Time in an interview published online Friday that she experienced “comments, passes, things like that” during her military service over the last 21 years. The GOP Senate nominee, a lieutenant colonel in the Iowa National Guard and U.S. Army Reserves, recently returned to the campaign trail after two weeks of military training. “These were some of things where I was able to say stop and it simply stopped but there are other circumstances both for

Senate Majority PAC, far and away the biggest-spending super political action committee of the election cycle — at nearly $25 million — has begun pouring millions of dollars into Michigan, Iowa and Colorado, signaling just how quickly Democrats have shifted to defense heading into November’s elections. The super PAC, which has deep ties to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, is increasingly limiting its offensive efforts and is instead trying to create a firewall in Colorado, Michigan and even New Hampshire, hoping to halt a potential GOP wave that would net Republicans the six seats needed to capture the the chamber and remove

Berlin - German security agents recorded a conversation involving Hillary Clinton while she was U.S. Secretary of State, media reported on Friday, a potential embarrassment for Berlin which has lambasted Washington for its widespread surveillance. Clinton´s words were intercepted while she was on a U.S. government plane, Germany´s Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper and German regional public broadcasters NDR and WDR said, without giving details of where she was or when the recording was made. The respected broadsheet quoted German government sources saying the conversation had been picked up "by accident"

   

 



 
Arab press blasts Islamic State militants
for tarnishing Muslims worldwide
Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/15/2014 2:07:29 PM     Post Reply
A growing chorus of top Muslim leaders and Arab pundits around the world are strongly condemning the “cancerous” actions of extremist Islamic State militants, saying the ruthless group’s horrific campaign of murder in Iraq does serious harm to all Islam. In the past, Muslim leaders have faced criticism from inside and outside the religion for being slow to condemn terrorism in the name of Islam. An editorial in the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi last month called on moderate Muslims to denounce the actions of the group formerly known as ISIS, which has killed thousands and left an estimated 1.5 million people displaced in northern Iraq.

Brussels - EU ministers agreed at an emergency meeting on Friday to back the arming of overwhelmed Iraqi Kurdish fighters in the face of an onslaught by Islamic State militants. Ministers were gathered in Brussels in a rare summertime meeting facing calls to step up efforts to stop what Germany said was a slaughter of civilians. "Iraq is on the brink of a true catastrophe. A million people in Iraq are fleeing their homes," German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier said. "In northern Iraq, in the Kurdish part, Yazidis and Christians are being persecuted and slaughtered." The meeting was called at the urging of France and Italy,

Forget Paul, Rachel and Simon, today’s babies are more likely to be called Bentley, Angel and Junior. (Snip) Amelia was the top name for girls for the third year in a row. More than 7,400 boys were called Muhammad, Mohammed or Mohammad last year. Oliver, the name which officially took the top spot, was only given to 6,949 babies. Muhammad is thought to be the most popular name in the world, given to an estimated 150 million men and boys. Statisticians put the high numbers down to the tradition amongst some Muslim families of naming their first-born after the Islamic prophet.

Sheryl Moore’s son lay on the bed before her. Soon, she knew, her 16-year-old boy would be taken off life support — another life lost to bullying. Alexander “AJ” Betts Jr. attempted suicide in July 2013, the Des Moines Register reported at the time. He died shortly thereafter. (Snip) Before he died, Betts had a request: Donate my organs. A 14-year-old boy received Betts’s heart, according to a letter Moore received, but she said his eyes were rejected.

Not even the U.S. Secretary of State is immune to flight delays. John Kerry found that out on Thursday, forced to fly United Airlines from Honolulu to Washington after his Air Force Boeing 757 suffered mechanical problems, The Washington Post reports. Kerry had been in Hawaii as part of a week´s worth of travels. But when his usual 757 went out of service, Kerry had to do what travelers everywhere must do: scramble to find another option. For the Secretary, that meant a commercial United Airlines flight "hours later," according to the Post. But Kerry seemed to take it in stride, according to the Post's account.

Bibles began disappearing from Navy lodges over the summer after complaints were made by an atheist group, but that decision has now been reversed while a policy review takes place. The Freedom from Religion Foundation complained about the religious books earlier in the year, which prompted the Navy Exchange to have managers put Gideons Bibles in lost-and-found locations. “That decision and our religious accommodation policies with regard to the placement of religious materials are under review,” Navy spokesman Cmdr. Ryan Perry wrote in an email to Stars and Stripes, the paper reported Friday. “While that review is under

FERGUSON, Mo. — The friend who was with Michael Brown when he was shot and killed by a police officer near St. Louis over the weekend is reportedly confirming that he and Brown had taken part in the theft of cigars from a convenience store that day. That word comes from the attorney for Dorian Johnson, speaking to MSNBC. Police in Ferguson had earlier announced that Brown was suspected of taking cigars from the convenience store in what was described as a "strong-arm robbery." Brown´s family is accusing police of trying to draw attention away from the shooting.

Speaking from Martha’s Vineyard, Mass., where he is on vacation, Obama said that many Americans “have been deeply disturbed” by images of violence in the St. Louis suburb following the police shooting Saturday afternoon of Michael Brown, an unarmed 18-year-old African American who was headed to technical college this week. “When something like

This is ridiculous. AUSTIN (KXAN) – A grand jury has handed up an indictment against Gov. Rick Perry in connection with the investigation into an effort to force Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg to resign. Perry wanted Lehmberg to resign because she had been busted for drunk driving. It’s not good to have a drunk driver, captured on camera abusing the officers who arrested her, heading up the Public Integrity Unit. At the center of the issue is a complaint about intimidation stemming from Perry’s threat to veto of $7.5 million in state funding to the Public Integrity Unit

Shocking accounts of medieval brutality — including video of kneeling Iraqis being gunned down, a Twitter image of a young jihadist holding a severed head and threats by ISIS to take its savagery to the White House — have prompted desperate calls for the international community to stop the fanatical Islamic group. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon this week joined Pope Francis, Egypt´s top cleric and several world leaders in condemning the terrorist group, which now calls itself Islamic State and has carved out a caliphate, or nation of strict Sharia law, in northern Iraq and Syria.
