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!

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.

Federal study on lesbian
obesity costs $3 million
Washington Times, by Jessica Chasmar    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/31/2014 3:49:42 PM     Post Reply
A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

In the wake of the televised beheading of American journalist James Foley, there have been urgent calls among some in the media for an intensified U.S. military response to the Islamic State group — also known as ISIL — responsible for Foley’s gruesome murder and a host of other barbaric atrocities across northern Iraq and Syria. There is also, understandably, some alarm, because ISIL has racked up a string of tactical victories in the Sunni-dominated regions of Iraq, culminating in the taking of the giant hydroelectric dam near Mosul. The principal complaint among the armchair quarterbacks is that the U.S. failed to neutralize the growing

Germany will send high-end rifles, tank-busting weapons and armored vehicles to aid Kurdish fighters battling Islamic extremists in Iraq, officials said Sunday. Germany´s defense minister said the arms would be sent in three shipments, starting next month, and would initially be enough to equip a brigade of 4,000 Peshmerga fighters. "This is in our security interest," Ursula von der Leyen told reporters in Berlin. Germany joins other European countries who have pledged to provide arms to the Kurds fighting the Islamic State group that has swept into northern Iraq in recent months. In total, the shipments will include 8,000 G36 assault rifles

Progressives really, really, really wanted to hear from Hillary Clinton on the events in Ferguson, Mo., where an unarmed black teenager was shot and killed by a white police officer on Aug. 9, sparking days of unrest in that small city outside St. Louis and elsewhere. Al Sharpton said he wanted to smoke Clinton out on Ferguson and suggested that if she ran in 2016, he would be a thorn in her side on civil rights issues. (Snip) But rather than just listing the statistics, she got personal by asking whites to put themselves in the shoes of black Americans: Imagine what we would feel and what we would do if white drivers were three

President Obama’s foreign policy is in “absolute free-fall” amid the rise of the Islamic State, and Western allies no longer view the U.S. as a leader in confronting religious extremism in the Middle East, the House intelligence chairman said Sunday. Rep. Mike Rogers, Michigan Republican, said the White House sat on its hands while Islamic fighters grew in influence, recruited abroad and seized swaths of Iraq and Syria. “Europe has obviously stood up and said, we have a huge problem. [U.K. Prime Minister] David Cameron came out and said, not only do we have a problem, here’s my plan to deal with it,” he told “Fox News Sunday.”

In the past two weeks, President Obama has twice interrupted vacation and fundraising trips to take presidential planes to Washington for a brief period, only to turn around and fly back to his earlier location — once after just a few hours in the White House. Why the peripatetic travel schedule? Well, there was a wedding and a bachelor party involved — and an expensive mix of socializing, work, and vacation. On Thursday, the White House announced Obama would travel to Westchester, N.Y., on Friday to attend a Democratic fundraiser. The president would then travel on to Newport, R.I., later in the day for another fundraiser.

“America reinforces its values and thus its security by being transparent about even the worst abuses of those values, not by hiding the evidence deep in a file drawer.” This sentence is from a New York Times editorial of 20 August, 2014. The editorial was written in response to a decision by Federal district court Judge Alvin Hellerstein forcing the Obama Administration to justify why it will not release approximately 2000 photos that allegedly document abuse by the American military and investigators in Iraq and Afghanistan, which begs the question of why The New York Times forced us to remove a photograph of a hooded ISIS executioner

Washington - Leaders of the House and Senate intelligence committees on Sunday prodded President Barack Obama to take decisive action against what they say are growing threats from Islamic State militants on U.S. soil. The lawmakers, one Republican and one Democratic, offered bipartisan pressure on the White House to turn back the hazard of Islamist fighters who have taken control of vast swaths of Syria and Iraq. Those militants now are looking toward the United States or Western Europe for its next targets, lawmakers said. Without offering specifics on any threats, the lawmakers said Obama soon needs to develop a

San Jose police tell KTVU that 49er Defensive Lineman Ray McDonald was arrested early Sunday morning on allegations of felony domestic violence. McDonald was arrested at his home in San Jose early Sunday morning. Sources say other 49er team members were at this home at the time of his arrest just before 3 a.m. Sunday. The arrest comes less than a week after the NFL instituted a new policy cracking down on domestic violence. That policy comes with a minimum six day suspension. Sunday’s arrest was not a first for McDonald, in 2010 he was arrested for an outstanding warrant stemming from a DUI arrest that year.

Hamas sources denied over the weekend reports that the former interior minister in the Hamas government in Gaza, Fathi Hammad, defected to Israel after it was discovered that he was a Mossad agent. The sources said that "the reports being published in a number of media outlets that Hamas official Fathi Hammad escaped abroad are groundless." In comments made to the Fatah-affiliated Al-Kuffiah website, a source said that "Hammad has not fled Gaza and was not arrested on suspicion of collaborating with the security service of a country in the region, as was reported in the media." He added that "the reports about Hammad are far from the

During the Great Depression, the Communist scribes at the Daily Worker were forever assuring the more skeptical among their colleagues that the heroic spark was near. Having read about a “small riot somewhere in rural Minnesota,” Whittaker Chambers recorded in Witness, Robert Minor started shouting about “the beginning of the American revolution.” If the paper wished to capitalize upon dissatisfaction and spin it into insurrection and change, Minor proposed, it would need the staff to keep an eye out for the tell-tale sign and, then, to “play it up big.” Over the past month, the events in Ferguson, Mo., have played

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million.

Watching the events unfold in Ferguson, Missouri, I can’t help thinking about the Holocaust and post-war Germany. As the daughter of a Holocaust survivor, I’ve spent years watching Germany wrestle with its dark past. It’s just one of many places that have made efforts to understand and compensate for a difficult history: For nearly three decades, countries as varied as South Africa, Rwanda, and the nations of Latin America and post-Communist Eastern Europe have been engaged in this process, often called “transitional justice.” That’s a broad term for the ways in which societies deal with the legacies of past injustice.

ISIS is a cancer that must be stamped out, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry wrote Saturday in an opinion piece for The New York Times. Kerry called the Islamist extremist group, known for beheadings, crucifixions and terror campaigns against religious and ethnic minorities, a "unifying threat to a broad array of countries" that needs to be confronted. His article appears in the aftermath of the political uproar that engulfed the White House this week after President Barack Obama said "we don´t have a strategy" on ISIS in Syria.

It will take two decades to rebuild the thousands of houses destroyed during Israel’s assault on Gaza, according to a recent NGO report. At least 17,000 homes were obliterated or severely damaged during the conflict, with thousands more needing substantial repairs, according to an assessment by Shelter Cluster. More than 2,100 Palestinians, most of them civilians, were killed during the conflict. In addition 71 Israelis were killed – all but six of them soldiers. But the report on Gaza’s housing stock indicates inhabitants of the densely populated strip will face a severe infrastructural burden over the coming years.

U.S. warplanes struck in Iraq for the first time in years, as U.S. diplomats struggled to establish a new government in Baghdad. Islamic State militants beheaded an American journalist in Syria and spread their reach across the Middle East. War raged between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. In Afghanistan, U.S. plans for an orderly exit at the end of the year teetered on the brink of disaster. Russia all but invaded Ukraine and dared Obama to stop it. Libya descended
