What Fresh Hell Is This?

Yea, What Tony Said

If you haven't already, go read Tony Norman's column in today's Post-Gazette.

He begins:
In the end, no one really expected the current majority of the U.S. Supreme Court to do anything other than what it did in its Hobby Lobby ruling. Given the ideological drift of a court nominally run by Chief Justice John Roberts, but ideologically dominated by Justice Antonin Scalia, no other outcome was possible.

But something can be both anticlimactic and sickening at the same time. The court’s 5-4 ruling in favor of a corporation’s right to object on religious grounds to the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate doesn’t begin to detract from its central absurdity — that a corporation has religious scruples that must be respected in the first place, even if it comes at the expense of female employees.
Well, of course.

This comment is even more incomprehensible than usual.

Now I'm concerned about you.

Ummm..I have no problem with getting a warrant to examine the contents of a cell phone. Not even sure what the hell your comment is supposed to mean.

FOrgot to add that is been a requirment in Pennsylvania for years that police had to obtain a search warrant before examining the contents of a cell phone, so the recent Supreme Court ruling just confirms what we've already been doing in the Commonwealth.
