obama conscience tax begins on August 1, Hercules industries based in Denver Colorado won a preliminary injunction in federal court against obama’s fiat for companies to pay for contraceptives, sterilizations and abortifacients. It is only a temporary injunction and only for one company, but without it the Hercules Industry was looking at a 3 million a year fine.
obama Justice Department argues that the Catholic owners of Hercules lost their right to religious liberty the moment they decided to own a business. They claim ‘when followers of a particular sect enter into commercial activity as a matter of choice, the limits they accept on their own conduct as a matter of conscience and faith are not to be superimposed on the statutory schemes which are binding on others in that activity,” read their motion, as reported by FoxNews.com.
The lawyers for Hercules Industries noted the historical audacity of this claim: “Nothing in the Constitution, the Supreme Court’s decisions, or federal law requires — or even suggests — that families forfeit their religious liberty protection when they try to earn a living, such as by operating a corporate business.”
On so-called Chick-fil-A “appreciation day,” thousands of people flooded the fast food franchise’s 1,300 stores nationwide Wednesday, no thanks to Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel said last month that “Chick-fil-A values are not Chicago values,” spurring many to support Chick-fil-A on Wednesday

Islam, as many a liberal thinker will happily inform you, is a religion of peace, and anyone who disagrees, or questions what else it might teach, is racist. If this is so, one wonders how such people would defend the following clip, apparently of a sermon by Saudi cleric Sa’d Al-Qa’ud, decrying the U.N. Convention on the Elimination of all forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW), a law which the cleric in the video decries as an attack on “Allah and his Shari’a.”
“Reading the articles of this agreement, dear brothers, sends shivers down your spine, and make your hair stand on end due to its hideous nature,” al-Qa’ud snarls. “One of the articles in this agreement, dear brothers, calls for complete equality between men and women. Any distinction between men and women is eliminated. One of the articles states that when a girl reaches the age of 18, nobody has guardianship over her. Not her father, her husband, her brother, or anyone for that matter. She can act with complete freedom. They say that a girl younger than 18 has the right to decide when she will become sexually active. It means she can decide when to exercise her right to commit consensual fornication.” read more
President Obama is trying to prevent thousands of layoff notices from going out a few days before the November election, Sen. Jame Inhofe (R-Okla.) said on Tuesday.
Obama’s Labor Department on Monday issued “guidance” to the states, telling them that a federal law requiring advance notice of mass layoffs does not apply to the layoffs that may occur in January as a result of automatic budget cuts known as “sequestration.”
Inhofe, appearing on Fox & Friends Tuesday morning, said President Obama, through his Labor Department, “is trying to intimidate businesses, companies, corporations — not just defense contractors — into not issuing the pink slips,” which are required by federal law 60 days before mass layoffs or plant closings.
“(T)he president doesn’t really want all these pink slips going out five days before the election,” Inhofe said.
Inhofe said “The Obama Administration is setting up employers to be sued and take on a huge financial burden when trial lawyers come out of the woodwork. I recommend companies take a hard look and err on the side of caution by letting their people know what could happen to their jobs in the near future. Is this the type of risk corporations want to take? If I were on the board of directors, I would fire the CEO who took this risk,” read more
Liberals and those of the gay community took to Twitter to voice their opposition to the outpouring of public support that Chick-fil-A is seeing today. Many of the tweets involve wishing death upon anyone who eats at the fast food chain today. Others are even more disgusting and include vulgar profanities, which we chose not to include in our rundown. theblaze
If you have obtained wealth you are not a hard working American, well according to obama anyway, during a speech in Ohio on Wednesday, he used the same old lines he has been using for 4 years now about building roads and bridges, that’s how we will grow the economy. According to the president, if the government taxes families making over $250,000 at a higher rate, and then spends the money on “roads and bridges,” the economy will eventually get back to its roaring state.
when will obama actually admit, his policies are failures, he has not grown the economy period, in fact we are worse off than we were four years ago. Obama seemed to imply that those who are “doing well” are not really “working Americans” who are trying to provide for their families.
He told the crowd:
Ohio, we do not need more tax cuts for folks who are already doing really well. We need tax cuts for working Americans. We need tax cuts for families who are trying to raise their children, and keep them healthy, and send them to college, and put a roof over their heads…
That’s the choice in this election. That’s why I’m running for a second term as President of the United States. [Emphasis added]
Which leaves some wondering: just how does President Obama think “the wealthiest Americans” came into their money? Are all of them Hiltons, Kennedys, and lottery winners? Are they not “working Americans” because they’ve been successful?
One business owner has been so insulted by Obama’s rhetoric he put up a sign: “I built this business without gov’t help. Obama can kiss my a**. I’m Ray Gaster and I approve this message.” read more
