    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that a problem.

    I think this is a valid point. Keeping the government out of questions of religion means applying the same rules to everyone without respect to what religion they subscribe to. If you don't like contraception, then don't use it. If your employees like getting religious lectures from you, then tell them why you think they shouldn't use contraception. If you want to run an insurance policy, though, do it the way everyone else is required to do it; don't come whining about how your religious beliefs make you special enough to be exempted from rules other people have to follow.

    Those Church of Marijuana guys tried this and got flat-out denied. Health insurance policies covering a routine product that many people use shouldn't be handled any differently.

    When anti-war people refuse to pay taxes on the grounds that they fund wars, the government has arrested them since Henry David Thoreau. Will the Supreme Court show them some love too?

    I wind up the Anglican Padre at work by telling him the reason the crime rate has gone down so much since the 70s is due to the widespread availability of abortion.

    Well, according to my father anyways. I don't know much about this, so I don't really think one way or another, or consider this event a moral victory.

    Norwegians become crown millionaires - http://news.yahoo.com/norwegians-bec...8--sector.html

    A 'sovereign wealth fund', now there's an idea. Singapore similarly makes owners of the entire public through forced investment of sorts. Either is beneficial in a Capitalist economy.
