The Green family’s religious beliefs are more of a weekend hobby.
Apparently Hobby Lobby doesn’t allow its religious beliefs to interfere with an insatiable thirst for more money. Mother Jones in April of 2014 reveals corporations are not only human, they’re often self righteous charlatans who have no problem making money off the very medical procedures and products they deny their own employees.
Molly Reddin authored the investigative piece examining Hobby Lobby’s $73 million holdings in mutual funds that invest in companies that not only manufacture contraception but the very same abortion inducing drugs used by Planned Parenthood.
Reddin poured over Hobby Lobby’s 401K for employees filed with the Department of Labor in 2012. Reddin writes.
Several of the mutual funds in Hobby Lobby’s retirement plan have stock holdings in companies that manufacture the specific drugs and devices that the Green family, which owns Hobby Lobby, is fighting to keep out of Hobby Lobby’s health care policies: the emergency contraceptive pills Plan B and Ella, and copper and hormonal intrauterine devices.
Reddin says Hobby Lobby’s investments are also in pharmaceutical giants like Pfizer, AstraZeneca and Forest Laboratories that earn millions off drugs used by doctors to induce abortions. She writes that Hobby Lobby also has holdings in healthcare giants like Aetna and Humana which offer insurance plans that include surgical abortion, contraception as well as the Morning After Pill also known as Plan B.
I guess the Green family’s religious beliefs are more of a weekend hobby.
Ralph Nader is our guest and says that as the situtation in Iraq deteriorates it’s time to take a serious look at Bush and Cheney’s culpability in all this. Down With Tyranny’s Howie Klein on why President Obama wants to fund the so called, sigh, “moderates” in Syria. Also Will Ryan and The Cactus County Cowboys.
When America becomes a police state, it will be due in no small measure to the tireless efforts of Fox News who every day works to scare Americans into believing somebody is trying to kill them. Fox News Channel Anchor Gregg Jarrett was recently arrested for being drunk inside a Minneapolis airport, and while waiting in the holding cell he naturally assumed cops worked with him. He was wrong, they work for the police, and they kicked his ass. Frankly, they were a little rough on the guy even if he is a Fox News anchor. Enjoy. That airport is bad luck for GOP cretins. Pretty sure it’s where Senator Larry Craig got pinched for flirting in a men’s room. Can’t wait till Sean Hannity has a layover there.
A White House intern fainted, probably from boredom, during a White House press briefing. House Republicans will undoubtedly launch an investigation into Obama’s secret plans to give young women the “vapors.” The intern was reportedly revived with water and M&M’s and said she was fine.
President Obama, according to our friends over at Think Progress, has issued fewer executive orders than any modern president. That’s not stopping the House from suing Obama for his rule by dictatorial fiat. Somebody should remind Drinker Speaker Boehner that the GOP is the party opposed to frivolous lawsuits.
But, as evidenced by this video, such lunacy is too insane for even Fox News to bare. Neil Cavuto turns on Michele Bachman and pretty much calls her an idiot.
Something is definitely happening over at Fox News. Last week Megyn Kelly turned on Cheney, last month Greg Jarrett turned on the police and even Rupert Murdoch has come out in favor of immigration reform.
So has Fox News finally realized it’s created a monster? Neil Cavuto appears to think so.
