I have been reading many posts and diaries over the last few days.  I even went out to check the SCOTUS Facebook page.  Whew, full of bile for example (James Grose When women start supporting the 2A we will worry about your vaginas!) Serious troll.  

BUT he did give me an idea and I wanted to throw it out, and let others look at it.
I have read the right-wing is already gearing up to use the Hobby Lobby ruling to cover firing gays. I suppose closely regulating what jobs women can have will come next. After all how can you have a career if you can't control your own body? That's pretty much the point of going after contraception in the first place.

So if you can use the Hobby Lobby ruling to fire gays (or any other group you don't approve of) do you suppose pacifist corporations could get rid of employees who insist on having guns?  I know guns don't kill people, but people with guns certainly do.  Seems like it would be a great way to get rid of that nut-job who makes going to the break room so awkward.  Especially the ones who insist on showing up at open carry demonstrations at places like parks and T-ball games.

If religious freedom can trump the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, can it also trump 2ndA abuse?

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    and people decide that it's not spinning fast enough.

    1. Cannot get comprehensive healthcare as a woman
    2. Might get fired upon suspicion of being gay, due to stereotypes about gay women fitting some of my "profile"
    3. future bosses datamining the internet for any bit of incriminating information to not hire me or to fire me at any time--context be damned!
    4. Drug tests even though I have never been convicted of a drug related crime EVER in my life
    5. NSA datamining the internet for any information, and holding it indefinitely, and sharing it with god knows who and why.
    6. And now you.

    And you propose this because all gun owners are teabagging republicans right?

    Thought so. Yes, stereotypes rule the world. Privacy? Whats that, I got bosses that think they should hold me hostage over jobs, for a variety of political and religious and ideological view points.

    Yea, that is precious.

    Be sure and let me know what business you run, cause I am not shopping there either.

    •  I suggest this because I'd like the young man... (0+ / 0-)

      ...who suggested that women don't deserve consideration because they oppose the 2ndA (could that be a stereotype?) to pause and reflect on how this law could be used against him.

  •  Not getting into the content, but you do know (0+ / 0-)

    that's NOT the Court's Facebook page, right? It's got no more relevance to the Court than dailykos.com. Probably less.

  •  We will find out what the evil five really thought (0+ / 0-)

    the first time they get the case where 'they' are are on the wrong end of one of these arguments, where bigotry and discrimination against them is the issue, based on their opinions.

  •  Why couldn't one or more employees sue (0+ / 0-)

    HL since their religion allows BC and HL is discriminating against them and or forcing their religion on them based on HL's religion which deprives the employee of equal protection?

    I'm sure the 5 Black Robed Ones Of The Apocalypse could wiennie their way around a tortured logic to claim is it not religious discrimination or forced religion, but it would at least get them to match the HL decision with an equally illogical argument.

    It is small comfort now but these guys are going to be laughed at around the word for a century or more for the nonsense they write and harm they are doing.
