    At least your lack of understanding of the first amendment is bipartisan.

    The guy is a douche bag. Yes.

    And yes the company had a right to fire him.

    Just think if this guy was a police officer and did something like this in his off-duty time and posted it on youtube.

    People would be calling for his badge, having the incident "investigated", etc, etc, etc. All claiming that he gets tax dollars and thus its the public's business.



    However, If this guy worked for the city trash service, not so much, nobody would care. (still tax dollars).


    This guy's employers looked into it (investigation) and made their decision to fire him.

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    How so?

    Here is the first amendment

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
    What part of that was violated?

    Guy was probably hoping he'd get the girl ranting on his video phone, then give it to the media and maybe gets 15 seconds of fame. Seems it backfired. The CFA employee made him look like the idiot he was, IMO.

    And, for the last time, when when their are consequences to you excercising your freedoms, they're not really freedoms. No one should have to fear reprisal--from anyone--for excercising their constitutional rights. Anyone that doesn't agree with that knows nothing about what freedom really means.

    You believe in being sorta free? The government can't ruin your life, but someone else can? That's not freedom.

    Well, actually, they can't. There's a such-a-thing as, "wrongful discharge", which protects employees from such behavior.

    We live in a world where we have to interact with other people, deal with it.

    We usually agree on stuff, but I am going to have to disagree with you on this one bud.

    If I walk up to you and call you an "ugly ****ing N******" I should not have to fear reprisal from your fist for exercising my freedoms?
