Justices Impersonating Accountants

Kagan went on to say that other U.S. businesses are “voluntarily” dropping their health insurance coverage for employees.
“You know Hobby Lobby is paying something right now for the — for the coverage,” Kagan said. “It’s less than what Hobby Lobby is paying for the coverage. There are employers all over the United States that are doing this voluntarily.”
Chief Justice Roberts interjected that this was in opposition to what Hobby Lobby presented in its lawsuit.
“I thought — I thought that part of the religious commitment of the owners was to provide health care for its employees,” Roberts said and Clements agreed.
“Well, if they want to do that, they can just pay a greater salary and let the employees go in on the exchange,” Sotomayor said.

Listen Sotomayor and Kagan, you brace of bimbos: you can slap a “Constitutional” label on the homesick abortion that is ObamaCare, but you can’t stop it from making you look like clueless idiots. How Hobby Lobby does its accounting is irrelevant to the truth that the law you found Constitutional is a steaming crock.

Maybe you think that you can wear down the resolve of the American people.

Train them to dig life on your Progressive Plantation. But will “elections have consequences” in November? Over time, are we allowed to repent of the abject foolishness that has allowed DC to accrue too much power over every aspect of life?

Or are you just going to ignore what happens, should the GOP retake Congress? Are we going to see more attacks on the Koch brothers and the Tea Parties, as our the Godless Commies who are our purported betters undertake “shaping operations” in order to train us to love Progress?

And do read the ObamaCare blog comment of the day. This thing is a virulent cancer. The GOP had better not harbor hope of making peace with it.

Related, via Hot Air Quotes of the Day:

One religious group could opt out of this and one religious group could opt out of that, and everything would be piecemeal and nothing would be uniform,” Kagan warned. “Religious objectors would come out of the woodwork.”

In other words, kind of like the Amish, or Congress:

Along with eschewing cars and many other modern technologies, the descendants of 18th-Century German immigrants who practice the Amish and Old Order Mennonite religions, have effectively opted out of Obamacare, along with most federal safety net programs.
A little-known provision of the law with its roots in a 1950s battle over Social Security exempts these communities from the individual mandate, an element of the Affordable Care Act that requires most Americans to purchase health insurance in some form.

I guess Kagan’s point is to warn that our Balkanized system could get kinda fragmented, or something. WHY ARE WE PAYING THIS IDIOT?

    With the exceptions of fission, relativity, and DNA, there really haven’t been any major breakthroughs in modern science.

    The major scientific breakthroughs occurred with the likes of Newton, Huygens, Gauss, and Maxwell – all in Christendom.

    There is a controversy between Leibniz and Newton on who first “invented” Calculus. Either way they are a lot of other mathematicians who contributed to modern Calculus.

    Nevertheless, Newton’s “invention” or contribution to Calculus is NOT the greatest achievement in mathematics.

    Wikipedia isn’t a legitimate authoritative source for complex information.

    A legitimate source re: Newton would be something like Never At Rest, a 900 page biography of Isaac Newton.

    In Never at Rest, it is made clear that Newton is credited with the invention of calculus because of his work in 1665. Reference, Chapter 4.

    Leibniz didn’t get to calculus until 1676, a full decade after Newton. By which time Newton had moved on to other things.
