  •  I think most people can conclude (13+ / 0-)

    The Hobby Lobby decision was strictly political and had no basis in law. There is no precedence and it fell along a party line majority. It was all conservative men voting for a law that only effects women and all the women of the court voting against. That is a powerful message and a terrifying one of how low our supreme court can sink into disgrace. I would expect our highest court in this country to act fairly but all they did is prove beyond a shadow of a doubt they only reflect the party that puts them in their lifetime positions. They are a disgrace to this country.

    •  Agree, except that they're all members of the (0+ / 0-)

      Corporatist Party.  That party has a lot of Democrats in it, along with 99.999999% of the Republicans. (I suppose there's a Republican politician who thinks about a democracy of humans once in a while.  On alternate Tuesdays. For 3 seconds).
