Everything You Need To Know About Hobby Lobby, Obamacare, Facebook, and Drones

by Nate St. Pierre on June 30, 2014

I know a lot of this stuff has been flying around in the news lately, and it can get pretty confusing. So after doing hours of research, I decided to give you everything you need to know on these topics in four easy-to-follow bullets.

Facebook’s Emotion Experiment
For one week in 2012, Facebook altered the algorithm it uses to display news feed content to its users. The study was conducted to determine if the American public would be for or against the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare. The results of the experiment, just published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), showed that support for the bill would be heavily supported mainly by Air Force remote control pilots and employees of retail stores in the Arts & Crafts category.

Hobby Lobby
Hobby Lobby was approached by Facebook and the Obama administration to be the test case for the new healthcare plan. Hobby Lobby didn’t want the federal government and major corporations (besides themselves) coercing their employees into experimental and untested coverage, so they appealed to the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of drone strikes. For everyone.

After a shaky rollout in late 2013, the Affordable Care Act finally found its footing in Q1 of 2014, when the plan enjoyed a near-unanimous approval rating from members, upon learning that the plan would pay for female contraceptive care, but only if used while in church. By 2015, any citizen not covered under company insurance, private insurance, or the ACA will be subject to a penalty in the form of a drone strike on their home.

Drone Strikes
As a result of the Hobby Lobby vs. Facebook and Obamacare, et. al. ruling, drone strikes are now permissible as retaliation by the United States government against the following: uninsured citizens (drone strike to offender’s home), uncooperative corporations (drone strike to corporate headquarters), and politically insensitive employees of any U.S. company, provided the company pays the Treasury $10,000 per enforcement (drone strike to offending employee’s vehicle).

Hope all that helps; let me know if you need any more clarification on anything!
