The justices who voted against freedom of religion

By Mike Thayer

The following justices voted against the fundamental right of freedom of religion and the exercise thereof in the Hobby Lobby case:

  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg, liberal
  • Sonia Sotomayor, liberal
  • Elena Kagan, liberal
  • Stephen G. Breyer, liberal

What else do these justices have in common other than liberalism?  They believe in favoring majority rule, rather than protecting individual rights. 

Iowa City Police Investigate Motorcycle/ Vehicle Fatality Collision

On June 29th, 2014 at 9:39 PM the Iowa City Police Department responded to the area of the 1600 block of Highway One West to a report of motorcycle and vehicle collision. Witness and emergency response personnel arriving on scene were unsuccessful in life saving efforts to the operator of the motorcycle- a 50 year old male. Witness accounts and the preliminary investigation on scene indicate that the motorcycle stopped in the inside eastbound lane and was struck from behind by the eastbound traveling automobile operated by an 18 year old female. Further investigation indicated the operator of the motorcycle was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.

The driver of the vehicle was transported to University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics and was treated for non-life threatening injuries. At this time, pending further toxicology results, alcohol and drugs do not appear to have been a factor.

This matter remains under investigation and no further details will be released at this time to allow for family notifications.

The Iowa City Police Department was assisted in the investigation by the Johnson County Ambulance Service, the Iowa City Fire Department, and the Johnson County Medical Examiner's office.

Another demonstration in illogical thought by Blog for Iowa

The suppository of progressive nonsense that is Blog for Iowa has done it again.

In their latest post, authored by Paul "I lack rational thought" Deaton, office product retailer Staples is bashed for making changes and adapting to the current business environment.   But given a pass for failing to adapt to today's business environment, is the United States Post Office!  Deaton even tries to float the old, tired, but very bogus "We need more funding" argument in support of business as usual for the USPS.

It's illogical to slam one organization for making changes with the times, while making a plea to save old school thought that is failing for another organization.

Here's the link to the illogical post for your review:

71% Think IRS Likely to Have Destroyed E-mails to Hide Guilt - Rasmussen Reports™

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: Think you'll see this in your local liberal paper?

Most voters think it’s likely the IRS deliberately destroyed e-mails about its investigations of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide its criminal behavior. Two-out-of-three now believe IRS employees involved in these investigations should be jailed or fired, and most suspect the agency of targeting other political opponents of the Obama administration.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that the Internal Revenue Service broke the law when it targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups.  That’s up from 49% earlier this year and back to the level seen last September. Little changed from the early surveys are the 22% who think the IRS did not break the law. Slightly more (25%) are not sure.
