NOT gloating over Hobby Lobby

  I'll admit I've been basking in the momentary pleasure of having actually won 2 modest victories in the Supreme Court.
  I'll also admit that I've been amused by my liberal friends' hysterical, vicious and ignorant reactions to the news that Hobby Lobby, who pays twice all employees twice the minimum wage and covers 16 contraceptive measures but not the abortifacient drugs, actually WON with the Supreme Court.
  I'll also admit I didn't write anything about the SCOTUS decisions because I'm really not one to gloat, unlike our current POTUS, who happens to be the laziest, most divisive and scatter-brained man to hold the office.
  Twitchy has a rundown of the inane comments made, including complaints that women can't buy contraceptives on minimum wage even though that is not what any employee makes at Hobby Lobby.
  FYI, here're the contraceptives Hobby Lobby covers, from NRO Corner:
  1. Male condoms
  2. Female condoms
  3. Diaphragms with spermicide
  4. Sponges with spermicide
  5. Cervical caps with spermicide
  6. Spermicide alone
  7. Birth-control pills with estrogen and progestin (“Combined Pill)
  8. Birth-control pills with progestin alone (“The Mini Pill)
  9. Birth control pills (extended/continuous use)
  10. Contraceptive patches
  11. Contraceptive rings
  12. Progestin injections
  13. Implantable rods
  14. Vasectomies
  15. Female sterilization surgeries
  16. Female sterilization implants
  I dunno. I'm pretty much done being interested in the liars out there who have no rational thought process.
  Like Hillary, for instance, who has said she's "disturbed" by the ruling, in addition to this from Politico:
“It’s the first time that our court has said that a closely held corporation has the rights of a person when it comes to religious freedom, which means the corporation’s … [‘closely held’] employers can impose their religious beliefs on their employees, and, of course, denying women the right to contraceptives as part of a health care plan is exactly that,” she said. “I find it deeply disturbing that we are going in that direction.”
“It’s very troubling that a sales clerk at Hobby Lobby who need contraception, which is pretty expensive, is not going to get that service through her employer’s health care plan because her employer doesn’t think she should be using contraception,”
“Part of the reason I was so adamant about including women and girls [in State Department efforts] is that they’re often the canaries in the mine,” Clinton explained. “It is a disturbing trend that you see in a lot of societies that are unstable, anti-democratic, and prone to extremism. Women’s bodies are used as the defining and unifying issue to bring together people—men—to get them to behave in ways that are disadvantageous to women but prop up rulers.”
Now, she said, something similar was happening in the United States, where religion was worming its way into government. “Many more companies will claim religious beliefs. Some will be some sincere, others maybe not. We’re going to see this one insurable service cut out for many women,” she said. “This is a really bad, slippery slope.”
  This concern about American culture becoming "unstable, anti-democratic, and prone to extremism" is pretty bizarre concerning that it was her husband who signed the law that made the Hobby Lobby possible:
THE LANDMARK ruling that is coming down today on the Hobby Lobby birth control case has an important history that proceeds it. The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, was signed into law in 1993 by President Bill Clinton. In 1997, however, the Supreme Court ruled it could not be applied to the states, with 22 states creating their own version of RFRA after this opinion. A Constitutional Center post outlines the details, as we await a ruling that will make history. 
  The fantasy world that these people have entered seems to be growing exponentially with Barack Obama's losses.
  It'd be amusing to watch if you weren't scared to go to bed at night because you don't know what a certain spoiled narcissist has cooked up during the night.
