So, you favor your ISP being allowed to slow down your service to websites of its choosing.  Let me explain something to you which you obviously don't understand.  When you subscribe to Internet service, you have the right to expect 100% of what you paid for, not better speeds to some websites than to others.  You think the admin of this site should have to pay a fee to his host service so that you can view it at a reasonable speed.  You're a fool and a jerk.   ::)

Uh, no, that's incorrect.  Internet service is part of interstate commerce.  It can be regulated just as trucking and auto emissions and the electrical grid.

--No, let me explain something to you which you obviously don't understand: The Federal government has no authority to make laws concerning private enterprise. Obama - the alleged 'constitutional scholar' - has been schooled once again (and so have you).

That's ridiculous.  The federal government does make laws and may make laws.  Ever hear of the FDA?  The SEC?  The FAA?  The EPA?  You're an idiot.

 
--When I pay for any product, I subscribe to the caveat, "Let the buyer be ware".   

What's a ware?  Or do you mean beware?  So, businesses cannot be criminals.  They can cheat you and if you are cheated, it's your fault for not being "ware"?  That's interesting, because the supreme court ruled that corporations are people.  So, some people don't have to follow laws, but others do.  Quite stupid.  So, if GM knowingly installed substandard seat belts that snapped during crashes killing passengers, it was buyer be ware, and GM gets off the hook.  Wonderful.   ::)

--I think that the admin of this site should do whatever he feels is in his own best interest. He's an American...it's his right.

You're ducking.  He should get the service he paid for.  When you get Internet service, you are entitled to that service all the time.  That's what we pay for.  Ironically, if you had your way with Net Neutrality, you would regret it. 

--When the Left is through having its way with the Constitution, you won't be able to say that anymore. I'm not looking forward to that day, are you?
I'm looking forward to the day when you are able to shake your paranoia for what you call "the left" ad nauseum.  It's so played out.  Go search for some "commies."  That's how ridiculous it is.   ::)  By the way, how many courses in constitutional law have you taken?

Trump rule to nix Obama order forcing religious contractors to hire LGBT workers

Calvin Freiburger
Aug 15, 2019

WASHINGTON, D.C., August 15, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The Trump administration is proposing a rule that would permit government contractors to make employment decisions that are consistent with their sincerely held religious tenets and beliefs, without fear of sanction by the federal government. If adopted, the rule would reverse an Obama-era executive order that restricted religious federal contractors’ ability to consider employees’ adherence to their faith on matters of sexuality and gender.

In 2014, former President Barack Obama issued Executive Order 13672, which added “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the criteria against which employers contracting with the federal government could not “discriminate.” On Thursday, the Federal Register published a new rule from the Trump Department of Labor (DOL) clarifying that contractors retain the freedom to make hiring and firing decisions consistent with their religious beliefs.

“Today’s proposed rule helps to ensure the civil rights of religious employers are protected,” Acting Secretary of Labor Patrick Pizzella said in a press release. “As people of faith with deeply held religious beliefs are making decisions on whether to participate in federal contracting, they deserve clear understanding of their obligations and protections under the law.”

The rule follows a pattern of the US Supreme Court siding with the religious liberties of private entities such as Hobby Lobby, Masterpiece Cakeshop, and Trinity Lutheran Church against state discrimination claims. A DOL official told Politico that despite these favorable rulings, “many religious organizations were not participating in the procurement process because of concerns that [the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs] would not fairly or correctly enforce the law related to the religious employer exemption.”

Left-wing organizations such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) assailed the rule as an attack on LGBT Americans, but Becket Fund for Religious Liberty vice president and senior counsel Luke Goodrich explained the meaning and importance of the rule in a lengthy Twitter thread Wednesday:

'Transgender mandate' struck down by federal court

Dallas, Texas, Oct 15, 2019 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- A federal judge struck down the so-called “transgender mandate” on Tuesday, vacating an Obama-era requirement that doctors perform gender-transition surgeries upon request.

Judge Reed O’Connor of the North District of Texas—who had issued a preliminary injunction on the transgender mandate at the end of 2016—struck down the mandate Oct. 15 in the case of Franciscan Alliance v. Azar, after doctors around the country filed suit against the mandate on religious freedom grounds.

“Today marks a major victory for compassion, conscience, and sound medical judgment,” said Luke Goodrich, vice president and senior counsel at Becket, which represented plaintiffs that filed suit against the mandate.

“Our clients look forward to joyfully continuing to serve all patients, regardless of their sex or gender identity, and continuing to provide top-notch care to transgender patients for everything from cancer to the common cold,” Goodrich said.

In 2016, the Obama administration issued a regulation that would require most doctors throughout the country—900,000 physicians, by the agency’s estimate—to perform gender-transition surgeries upon request, despite any conscience-based or prudential objections.

The rule omitted any clear religious exemption for doctors, and did not allow doctors to refuse a request for surgery if they deemed it harmful to the patient; surgeries would also have had to be performed on children.

The regulation stemmed from Section 1557 of the Affordable Care Act, which prohibits discrimination in health care on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. HHS interpreted “sex discrimination” under this rule to include gender identity, thus mandating the provision of gender-transition surgeries.

In response to the rule, an alliance of more than 19,000 health care professionals, nine states, and several religious organizations combined in two lawsuits against the mandate, saying that it unlawfully required doctors to, in cases of objection, violate their religious beliefs or the Hippocratic Oath to do no harm to the patient. Becket represented the plaintiffs.

In December of 2016, two different federal courts ruled against the mandate, and in May of 2019, the Trump HHS proposed a rule to roll back the inclusion of “gender identity” within the nondiscrimination rule. While the proposed rule has not yet been finalized, the previous regulation was still valid.

Another lawsuit against the mandate, New York v. HHS, is still pending in federal courts.

In other recent cases in California, two Catholic health systems are facing lawsuits from two women identifying as transgender men, who claim that they requested hysterectomies at Catholic hospitals but were denied the procedures.

Goodrich, in a series of tweets on Tuesday, said that two different federal circuit courts—the First and the Fifth Circuits—have said that no consensus in the medical community exists that gender transition surgeries should be mandatory.

“The doctors and hospitals in these cases argued that they shouldn’t be forced to perform procedures that violate their consciences and could harm their patients. The federal court today agreed,” Goodrich tweeted.
