"If at age 20 you are a conservative then you have no heart. If at age 30 you are a liberal then you have no brains."
Sir Winston Churchill

Obama obviously knows very little about economics, specifically that "Society stagnates when independent productive achievers begin to be socially demonized and even punished for their accomplishments." This dilemma fogs Obama's reality. To him, accepting this truth is a "false choice", his answer to things he doesn't understand. And by the way... where is John Galt?

Abortion has become a secular sacrament for the secular left. 
The response by so called "feminists" and Democratic female politicians to the "Hobby Lobby" decision would have you believe that Sharia law  has just been instituted in the United States.  The irony in this is that normally these same actors are silent about the real evils of Sharia inflicted on women in Islamic countries.  They explain this by not wanting to be" Islamophobic" and so it goes in the "progressive asylum" that America has become.
We have heard from Hillary and NOW and Sandra Fluke and Elizabeth Warren and Debbie Wasserman- Schultz and of course  Nancy Pelosi, who just the day before told us that border states and Mexico are just one big community with a river running through it.  "San Fran Nan" also seems unfazed by a Cardinal's call to deny her communion.  I supposed she sees it as just another way to lose weight.
Hillary's denouncement is also ironic since the decision was based on the regulatory requirement to provide birth control  being a violation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which was signed into law by Bill Clinton in 1993.  Put more succinctly this was not an "ObamaCare" statutory requirement ...it was an Obama personal requirement.
The always foaming at the mouth Dems see the Burwell v Hobby Lobby decision handed down on June 30th as a new opportunity to whip up the base in order to avoid disaster at the polls in November.  The very idea that people who own the majority share of for profit companies might have genuinely held religious beliefs seems quite beyond their ken.
In reality however many do understand it...they just hate it.  Religion to them is in the words of Karl Marx "the opium of the masses".  In response to that I would quote Groucho Marx who said "The secret of life is honesty and fair dealing.  If you can fake that, you've got it made".  Faking honesty and fair dealing has become the leitmotif of all progressives and particularly progressive women who try to frame the issue as a mostly Catholic attack on "Women's Health Rights".  I mean "get your Rosaries off my ovaries" has such intellectual heft to it.  It's sheer poetry if you are a Fascist or a lunatic or both.
The basic question posed in "Hobby Lobby" is ignored by those shrieking about a conservative war on women and in fact ignored by SCOTUS in their decision.  That question is why  would any person believe that I or any other citizen should subsidize another persons sex life?  Where does this new right come from? 
The left loves to make things that are the personal responsibility of  individuals into "rights" that become the responsibility of everyone.  They do this to enlarge the powers of the state and diminish the rights of each person.  They create faux victims who henceforth demand and are entitled to social justice which today is the only growth industry in the United States.
The fact is that the decision left intact 16 out of 20 birth control products which would be covered by Hobby Lobby.  The 4 that were exempted were abortifacient  products which violated the religious rights of the owners. 
Justice Ginsburg was so outraged by the 5 to 4 decision that she read her dissent from the bench and warned “The court, I fear, has ventured into a minefield.”  The fear is that this decision would proliferate and would lead to the denial of vaccinations, blood transfusions and I suppose if you take it to the absurd the right to commit honor killings because of religious beliefs.  I have no doubt in the Bedlam created deliberately by  progressives that this indeed will be the case since their agenda is to strip reason and judgement from our public and private affairs in order to bring down American democracy and traditional culture.  Notwithstanding all of the above,the decision was confined to the regulatory  mandate in question in this case.
 The argument today is  not about birth control.  It is about abortion, including efforts to deny lifesaving treatment to babies who survive botched abortions.
The majority of Americans oppose unlimited abortions on moral grounds. According to one poll,  58% of all Americans believe that all abortions should be banned.  According to Rasmussen, a plurality of 49% believe that private companies should  be exempted from providing coverage for abortion. 
This is a debate which has monumental and fundamental human and civil rights implications.  To turn it into sleazy political opportunism is to turn away from one of the great moral struggles in history
It is frightening to understand that we are but one Justice away from the legalization of a new proto-Fascist America where zealots like Sandra Fluke calls the shots and abortion becomes a secular sacrament for all of us.  Is this the dark world framed by  death that we want for our future? I say never..I say l'chaim...I say here's to life and here's to love.
