I got a statement from Eden Foods, for anyone who's interested:

Quote:
Hi Liza, Michael Potter and Eden Foods have offered a challenge to regulations of the “Affordable Care Act” that forces individuals to violate their religious beliefs by funding contraception, sterilization, abortion, and abortifacients, as well as counseling for individuals that encourages them.

Thomas Jefferson, a Founding Father, principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and our third president, when describing the construct of our Constitution proclaimed, “No provision in our Constitution ought to be dearer to man than that which protects the rights of conscience against the enterprises of civil authority.”

The HHS Mandate violates the free exercise of religion and freedom of speech under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution, the Religious Freedom Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, and the Administrative Procedure Act.

We are bringing this action to vindicate not only our own
rights, but also to protect the rights of all Americans who care about our Constitutional guarantees of free exercise of religion and their freedom of speech.

Opening the window and adjusting manually is not a option?

I don't understand how the government funding contraception, abortion, etc, interferes with anyone's right to practice their religion. Or am I reading that wrong?

It's not that kind. It's got some fancypants mechanical thingamajig that you control with a button inside the car. The casing is locked into place and just the mirror moves around. It is so stupid. Also, the official mirrors (I have a GD volvo, and I hate it if you can't tell) are like $70 each (just the mirror part! not the casing!) because they're heated. So I just had a glass place cut me a mirror and glue it to the inside. Not adjustable, but it'll pass inspection! And I saved 40 bucks.

They think that being required to offer employees health care that covers birth control violates their religious freedom. And they aren't being forced to cover abortion, as far as I know (and I think I'd know because I bet there'd be a huge fuss about it), but think that things like IUDs and Plan B cause abortions.

I'm sure the people who cry about this would be fine working for Jehovah's Witnesses who might bar coverage of things like blood transfusions. And organ transplants? Who needs those? Some religions don't allow them.

I wrote on the Eden Food's FB page and my FB settings must be funky because my sister in law found the comment! (and liked it). Although I come from a large Catholic family, there are very few of them on FB that would potentially take issue with my comment but I don't think my 90 your old great aunt will magically jump to Eden Foods defense.

And you know what peas me off the most is that if we had true universal healthcare, we wouldn't be having these kinds of issues.

I replaced the element in my oven myself. Seriously beaming with pride. I love that I seem to be getting back my independent, self-reliant streak.

Thanks! So proud! Feel I can take on the world again especially since people at work basically told me I shouldn't do it because I'm not an electrician/a man.

Everyone at work things I'm totally weird for wishing I could grow a badass beard. I would rock it with a dress and heels too! Living vicariously through you!

So someone posted a status on fb (a friend of a friend) "what do I make my profile picture if I'm against queers?"

I'm ... I mean I know there's a scathing insult there but I just can't think of it

I'm so bored. Thought about baking cookies or even going to a movie, but decided I don't have the energy.

I guess I could rent a movie, but, bah. I could grade papers, I guess, but I do t really feel like wasting my time on that. I'm caught up on my real grading. This is just a five inch pile of hastily done shoddy crepe from kids who won't do anything until they were threatened with detention. Most of it is just copied from other kids or only partially completed.

I hate not energy for anything. Momentum gets me through work had then I crash as soon as I get home, but when I'm. It working, I don't seem able to get the momentum going.

I guess having a week off is over rated.

JOB ADVICE:
I'm applying for a job. They want contact info for 3 references. I have one former job that's super relevant to the one I'm applying for now, and I want to use that boss as a reference. BUT, I left that job almost 2 years ago and I haven't used it as a reference since because I've been in school and using school people for references. When I left this former job was told I was welcome to use them for references.

SO: I emailed the boss yesterday asking her if I could use her, and I haven't heard back yet. Everything else is ready to go, and it's a time-sensitive thing so I really want to submit it asap. Am I allowed to go ahead and send it in?

I would send it but try calling the old boss ASAP and apologize for not getting the ok but that it was time sensitive. Previous bosses of mine have been fine with this and I've had previous employees do this also.

I would use it and then email them to explain that you used them because of time issue.

I still don't get people liking every status on fb, no matter what the content. My mom just posted that her elderly aunt was in a car accident and has fractured ribs, and 2 people "liked" it.

That's the worst! people are so weird. facebook really needs to make a frowny face button, so at least people can respond appropriately.
