Hobby Lobby under the gun

Hobby Lobby is facing a furious backlash over their position regarding ObamaCare:

Oklahoma-based Hobby Lobby filed the suit Sept. 12 in U.S. District Court in Oklahoma City, alleging that the ObamaCare mandate violates the religious beliefs of the company's owners. The suit followed similar suits by Catholic colleges and a Denver-based company whose owners also objected to the mandate on religious grounds. While a judge has not yet ruled on Hobby Lobby's suit, a Facebook page calling for a boycott of the company, which operates 500 stores in 41 states, has appeared online, and several other forums have featured posts urging customers to steer clear of Hobby Lobby.

Hobby Lobby owner David Green is a devout Baptist who owns one of the world's largest collections of Biblical artifacts. The Barret Fund for Religious Liberty, which represents Green in his suit, argued that compliance with the offending portion of the health care law  that the nature of their suit is “would force religiously-motivated business owners like plaintiffs to violate their faith under the threats of millions of dollars in fines.”

Green may be a devout Baptist, and he is clearly a smart, successful businessman, but he is making his millions running a store front for The Chinaman. Almost everything in the store is made in China. Even the little American-flag-waving patriotic figures are made in China. Most of that Fourth of July junk the store sells just before Independence Day is made in China. All you have to do to see this walk through the store looking at the labels on things.

How many American jobs have gone down the tubes because of outfits like Hobby Lobby?

Let's wave the flag some more, while thumping the Bible.

This ObamaCare thing is just another reason to shop elsewhere.
