Thanks to the Good Doctor for explaining in layman’s terms what many of us have been saying all along about the IUD’s , Plan B, and Ella contraceptives mentioned in the Hobby Lobby case.

It gets tweeted, posted on my blog, and I am asked in person.
Sometimes people are really genuine. I understand everyone…
The most famous mission…The Alamo.
I have seen multiple postings recently pertaining to seeing teachers as separate from their unions. I witness this unfortunate truth daily.
I used to live in Tulsa, OK, the home of Hobby Lobby. I even used to shop there.

As the 4th of July approaches, and the current climate of politics in these United States, I think it is important to remind all American citizens of the price that was paid by these men for putting their beliefs and actions into practice. The price that they paid was very expensive.
I am of the opinion that politicians today cannot hold a candle to these men,…
We know by now that one positive way to promote change is by making conscious purchases. We did it with a certain chicken fast food chain and now we can do it with arts and crafts. I…
Beware of Michael’s as well. Best bet is to find those locally owned shops. For example, I buy my yarn at a little local shop called L’Atelier or Harmony Works. The ability to support small local business owners feels good—and it’s worth the little extra I pay for each skein or other craft items.
THIS IS A PICTURE THAT SOMEONE TOOK WHO WORKS ON AN OIL RIG IN TEXAS.
HE WANTED TO GET A SHOT OF THE LIGHTNING THAT WAS FLASHING BY.
HE WAS UNAWARE OF THE TORNADO UNTIL THE LIGHTNING ILLUMINATED IT.
This has been called a one-in-a-million photo; taken south of Ft. Stockton, Texas.
This is amazing.
This is crap your drawers, run and hide time! Wow! That is indeed a once in a lifetime shot.
This is about our health and our lives. This is about our fundamental right to have control over our own bodies. This is about justice — and we’re fighting back. If you agree, join Justice Ginsburg’s dissent.
“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

I HOPE EVERYONE READS THIS AND REBLOGS IT!
this is important
This is why I desperate want to campaign with Lush.
All of this and more…
THIS IS GLORIOUS.

effleague, you should learn from dis.
SPENT is an online game about surviving poverty and homelessness. Players must make the difficult decisions necessary to live for one month on $1,000, often having to choose between equally disagreeable options. The game ends when players either run out of money before the end of the month or make it through with money left over.
Now imagine you work for a company like Hobby Lobby. And you have to pay for health services on top of the benefits you earned with your hard work. Now just go find another job because you don’t have to work for them. Or any other of the 90% closely held private companies in the U.S. that employ 54% of the employees in the work force. Just accept the fact that your boss has more “religious freedom” than you do, that your company is a “person” who can contribute unlimited sums to political candidates you despise and with whom you disagree. Imagine that world. Oh, wait. That’s for real. Crap. What a mess—choose to find a job, any job, and work an honest day’s work for an honest day’s wages (as if that exists anymore) and just turn a blind eye to the discrimination and injustices and hardship I see around me.
I will not go gentle into that good night. And I will rage against the dying of the light.
