The country sitting on pins and needles waiting for the Hobby Lobby case to be announced at the Supreme Court. Today is the last day of the session, and people are still reeling from the smackdown of Buffer Zones around abortion clinics.
Breaking - They've ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby - "closely held" corportations don't have to provide birth control if it is against their religion. Therefore, a corporation is now identical to a person with religious beliefs. Not to mention that this is a sexist verdict because it only applies to women, and puts their health care in jeopardy. Idiots!!!!!!
Cheers going up from the pro-lifers outside SCOTUS. Pro-choicers chant: "Pro-life, that's a lie, you don't care if women die."— daveweigel (@daveweigel) June 30, 2014

Must be some really long dissents if it's a three-box, two-opinion day. #SCOTUS— Victoria Kwan (@victoriakwan_) June 30, 2014
Noel Canning and McCullen were two boxes. That was 160 pages of opinions. #SCOTUS We are prob looking at north of 200 pages today— Josh Blackman (@JoshMBlackman) June 30, 2014
Oh boy. Alito has both opinions. #SCOTUS— Robin Radner (@RRadner) June 30, 2014
"How shocked would you be, on a scale of 1 to Andy-Kaufman-Is-Alive, if Justice Alito writes an opinion where Hobby Lobby loses?" LMAO.— Imani ABL (@AngryBlackLady) June 30, 2014
