Hobby Lobby faces millions
in fines for bucking Obamacare

CNN, by Eric Marrapodi

Washington - Craft store giant Hobby Lobby is bracing for a $1.3 million a day fine beginning January 1 for noncompliance with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, dubbed Obamacare. The company opposes providing some contraceptives to employees through its company health care plan on religious grounds, saying some contraceptive products, like the morning after pill, equate to abortion. After failing to receive temporary relief from the fines from the Supreme Court, Hobby Lobby announced late Thursday through its attorneys that it "will continue to provide health

´Free´ health care - at gun point.

Hobby Lobby can stop providing health insurance to its employees and pay the Obamacare fines; it´s cheaper. If you kill off employer provided health insurance, you pave the way to single-payer. That´s the plan. The Democrats want a unionized government run healthcare care system modeled after the appallingly bad NHS system in England. Almost all NHS employees vote Labor (i.e. Socialist) and the NHS is the 3rd largest bureaucracy in the world after the Chinese Red Army and the Indian Railways. It is all about power and control for the Left. It has nothing to do with improving healthcare.

Just the merest slight trickle coming out of the dam face. I can imagine that Hobby Lobby will close down for the duration rather than pay that fine. So will many others big and small.

One thing is for sure, having to pay a fine for not providing what was a perk for many years is not going to go over very well. Company funded health care is on it´s way bye bye.

hire only men because they don´t get pregnant and the insurance isn´t needed because it´s a forced on us women´s right with men not included.

All they need to do is move their headquarters to one of the states that has opted out of the healthcare exchange and suffer no fines for not offering corporate insurance. The states that have opted out cannot fine corporations or individuals without insurance. Let the federal ecxhange handle their coverage.

May not be the most appetizing solution to the employees, but it´s better than tanking the company and having no job at all.

I wonder if it would be possible for Hobby Lobby to make every store into its own LLC, thereby keeping the number of employees under the Obamacare minimum. Of course, they could also incorporate in Bermuda, thereby leaving the US altogether. Corporations aren´t stupid, and even a 3,000 page nightmare law has loopholes.

As Jay Sekulow mentioned in an interview this morning, the First Amendment doesn´t mention "non-profit." In any case, Christianity is not "non-profit," for what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul?

Christianity encourages the greatest of profit-seeking, and speaks well of all lesser kinds of profit-seeking, as long as it is subordinated to that greatest.

As others have observed, this is nothing less than a war against Christian values.

You have to admire Hobby Lobby for sticking to their principles. Chick-fil-A stood to theirs too, sort of....

This is the result of a totally rotten deal with the devil--Cheif Justice John Roberts saying that this crap was a tax, but it was not since the House of Representatives didn´t create it...

The notion that pro-life entities have to provide for abortion...


Even with Romney some sort of health plan would have emerged, just as when Hillarycare was defeated during Bubba Clnton´s term, Bob Dole of Kansas had a "plan"

Anyone else sick of the notion that whatever the dems promote that the "Republicans" can produce a better plan?

There is no opting out of Obamacare or the HHS decrees, except for those orgs whose waiver applications are approved.

WASHINGTON - The United States extended the closures of some embassies and consulates in the Middle East - which had been closed Sunday due to an al Qaeda threat - through August 10 due to caution but not the emergence of any new threat, the State Department said. Other U.S. diplomatic posts, including in Kabul, Baghdad and Algiers, that had been closed on Sunday, will reopen on Monday, the State Department said.

Brigham Young University planetary scientist Jani Radebaugh said new research shows a fast-moving sand dune is spilling onto streets of the set in the Tunisian desert and will eventually bury buildings.

The closure of 19 embassies Sunday and the issuing of a month-long global travel alert for all Americans abroad shows how Al Qaeda´s threat to the United States has evolved since 9/11 – and how the US response has evolved, too. The closed embassies are all in an arc that runs from North Africa through the Middle East to Afghanistan, and the information suggests that the primary threat comes from Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula – the Yemen-based Al Qaeda branch that many experts say is now the movement´s strongest.

WASHINGTON -- The 162,000 jobs the economy added in July were a disappointment. The quality of the jobs was even worse. A disproportionate number of the added jobs were part-time or low-paying — or both. Part-time work accounted for more than 65 percent of the positions employers added in July. Low-paying retailers, restaurants and bars supplied more than half July´s job gain. "You´re getting jobs added, but they might not be the best-quality job," says John Canally, an economist with LPL Financial in Boston. So far this year, low-paying industries have provided 61 percent of the nation´s job growth

For Obamacare to Work,

Two beliefs continue to shape debate on Obamacare. First, pre-existing medical conditions shouldn’t prevent people from obtaining affordable health insurance. And second, people who don’t want health insurance shouldn’t be forced by the government to purchase it. These may seem to be reasonable positions. But they are incompatible. That’s been shown by historical events, and it’s now being strikingly confirmed by recent experience in the emerging Obamacare insurance exchanges. The crux of the matter is what economists call the adverse-selection problem. Uninsured people with pre-existing conditions often face tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars in

Aetna Inc has withdrawn its applications to sell insurance plans on Maryland´s individual health exchange after it was asked to lower its rates by up to 29 percent, according to the state´s department of insurance. In an Aug. 1 letter sent to the Department of Insurance, Aetna said the required rate modifications cut premiums too low on both its Aetna and Coventry products. Aetna closed on the acquisition of Coventry Health Care this spring.

Some of the earliest clues scientists had that Earth´s climate has changed over time were mismatches between the fossil record and a current ecosystem. How could this palm tree have grown in Wyoming? Why have fossils of the tropical breadfruit tree been found as far north as Greenland? These cold places must have once been warm and wet. The world is not as it has always been. And somehow, despite the tumult, species adapted, moving thousands of miles to habitats where they could survive. Won´t species today just do the same as temperatures rise in the years ahead?

Mr Mugabe´s party - which is claiming a victory - denied the accusations, saying the voting went smoothly.

You don´t have to be gay or even Russian to feel the wrath of the Russian government´s homophobia. You could go to jail if you are "pro-gay," whatever that means. And that´s under just one of a growing number of hate-infused bills becoming law at a time when, as it happens, Russia is preparing to host the world in the next Winter Olympics. The perverse anti-gay legislation is inflaming an atmosphere of persistent intimidation and at times deadly violence against Russian gays and lesbians.

I have a suggestion. How about an exhibit on Tawana Brawley? If the purpose of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture at the Smithsonian is to remember racial controversies, as the proposed Trayvon exhibit seems to confirm, then how about an honest look at the phenomenon of hate crime hoaxes? Particular attention should be paid to the role of the media in both the Trayvon and Tawana materials. Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Police shot and killed an armed teen in the South Bronx early today after the suspect opened fire and refused to drop his gun, police said. Two rookie cops heard shots fired near East 151st Street and Courtlandt Avenue around 3 a.m. and ran in the direction of fire, police said. The uniformed officers saw Shaaliver Douse, 14, of the South Bronx, chasing another person through the streets, according to cops. Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.
