 Ann Woolner, Bloomberg

I am astonished that anyone would so lightly scoff at the idea people might truly object to the government requiring people to buy something and punishing them if they don't. I get that Republican politicians are using the issue for politics, but then, so are and have the Democrats. But the author of the article seems to dismiss the very idea that there could be any legitimate concern for freedom in the objections raised. She seems either ignorant or foolish.
Your reality, sir, is lies and balderdash and I'm delighted to say that I have no grasp of it whatsoever.

Get used to the fact that many unqualified assholes write all sorts of crap, that, at the end of the day, don't mean squat.  I might as well get a pass, and put press on it, and drive all over the place showing the phony credential pretending to look important but in realty don't know anything about journalism.

The author has been a journalist for quite a while. i found a reference to one of her stories with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution from the mid 80's.

Your disagreement with her point of view doesn't make her unqualified, it just puts her at odds with your point of view.
