Hobby Jobby: You Were Always Being Played

Predictable, but depressing:

Documents filed with the Department of Labor and dated December 2012—three months after the company’s owners filed their lawsuit—show that the Hobby Lobby 401(k) employee retirement plan held more than $73 million in mutual funds with investments in companies that produce emergency contraceptive pills, intrauterine devices, and drugs commonly used in abortions. Hobby Lobby makes large matching contributions to this company-sponsored 401(k).

Several of the mutual funds in Hobby Lobby’s retirement plan have 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.

All the nitwits who flocked to this company. All the people who supported them because they were so godly, so sincere, so pure. Everybody who argued that forcing the availability of contraceptive coverage on these folks was the equivalent of putting them in a concentration camp. All y’all who made them your mascot because you thought they were like you and believed what you believed.

DO YOU GET IT NOW?

They don’t give a shit about you. They don’t give a SHIT about abortion. They don’t give a shit about the unborn babies or whatever the hell they think Plan B does, and they don’t give a shit about Jesus. At all. They give a shit about MONEY. They don’t want their employees to have evil Obamahitlercare because they have to pay, and that’s it. That’s all this is about, that’s all this has ever been about, and if for one second you’d all stop falling for it America would be much, much better off. You got worked.

You know the score, or you should, after four decades of Republicans promising that if you just vote for them all the little Jesus babies will stop dying when there’s no chance in hell they’re going to be able to make that happen even if they wanted to WHICH THEY REALLY DON’T. You’re just patsies to them, all you pious people with your rosaries and your coupons for half off the fucking yarn. You’re just getting played, over and over and over, and you still hate the LIE-BERALS who are honest with you more than the people who wine-dine-69 you and haven’t heard a damn word you’ve said.

Just stop TAKING the booty call. Don’t get me wrong, the majority of my contempt is still reserved for those operating the switchboard. I blame them for dialing, but after a while you can STOP PICKING UP.

    Have you ever been in one of their stores? You know where the vast majority of the crafty crap they sell comes from? Yeah, that country the fundies love to rail against what with their one family, one baby and forced abortion policies.
    No problem making a profit from selling their stuff though. Bastards.

    Was going to mention the same thing, FeralLiberal. Am guessing they’re probably big supporters of Israel as well, which recently liberalized abortion policy under their version of universal health care.
    Yeah, a fertilized egg is a fully actualized-not-to-mention-innocent-and-individual-life that MUST be “protected” at all costs…unless it’s across a border, in which case, too bad, so sad, oh well.

    Shocked! I am shocked! that these litigious fundamentalists are flaming hypocrites.
    Who could have foreseen this? Why, it’s as if someone had predicted that the Sun would rise in the EAST this morning!
