Title: Supreme Court
Post by: Mac on July 02, 2014, 09:18:32 am
This is a movie, music and arts forum, so I don't want other things side track or worse overtake. But dammit, the things the Supreme Court is doing lately is scaring the crap out me. In the sense thinking like movies. Are they being bought? The Koch Brothers dictating this? A secret society running the show.

I'm just having a hard time accepting a lot of decisions coming down lately

Hobby Lobby Ruling

Supreme Court Justices John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Clarence Thomas, Antonin Scalia and Anthony Kennedy all ruled for Hobby Lobby in the 5-4 decision

Funnyman Seth Rogen does not think that there is anything funny about the recent Hobby Lobby ruling, and took to Twitter to voice his opinions.

The comedian tweeted Tuesday, one day after the Supreme Court ruled in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby that closely held for-profit companies can be exempt from covering birth control under the Affordable Care Act for employees and their families based on religious beliefs.

“The people at Hobby Lobby are a—holes and those who voted to let them be a—holes are also a—holes,” Rogen tweeted, with an article from The Huffington Post that explained that the company will still cover vasectomies and ****.

The Hobby Lobby Ruling has exploded all over the place and rightly so. People should be p*ssed and voice their opinion. But will it matter in the end? I blame Obama. I blame him for everything. I blame him for the Padres and Chargers sucking. Man, I just wish I could go back in time when there wasn't an Obama on the radar.

Must-see morning clip: Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart destroy the Hobby Lobby decision

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart missed out on quite a bit during their two-week hiatus, including the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in favor of the craft store Hobby Lobby. The Hobby Lobby decision stated that “closely held corporations” do not have to provide contraception coverage to employees, if contraception infringes on religious beliefs.

Each host had his own take on the “unanimous 5-4 decision,” as Colbert called it. “Set your humping to dry,” Colbert joked, given that contraception would no longer be covered. Colbert explained that the court had ruled in favor of closely held corporations and their religious beliefs.

“Oh, and it’s probably not a big deal,” Colbert added on, “but they also ruled that corporations have religious beliefs.” Watch below:

Stewart had a longer take that involved going live to correspondent Jessica Williams, who explains the “narrow” ruling of the Hobby Lobby decision. The segment is interrupted by a pants-less Jason Jones. Why is he without trousers? Well, his corporation Jonsey Wonsey Has a Bonsey LLC has a religious belief against pants. And you’ll see why.
