    Me either. I have a right to have professional people who do not cause public disturbances. (I do not own a company) but if I did and my employees were causing public disturbances, I would can their asses immediately.

    Keep in mind the government did not fire him. Part of freedom is my freedom to fire a jackass I don't want working for me. Government control over who works for me and why I can fire them is less free than some guy being held accountable for his actions.

    That sounds like something straight out of the Ku Klux Klown handbook.

    But, is that the right thing to do? Is it the right thing to do, to take away someone's livelyhood over something this inocuous?

    I wouldn't fire someone for expressing a political opinion, either on the job, or off the job.

    And, no, you can't just up-n-fire someone for being a jackass...you don't have that right.

    Until your company starts loosing money because of said asshole.

    Oh yes they can in states that are "at will." You can be fired for anything but discrimination like sex or race. Lets say you smoke and get fired just because you smoke. Under "at will" this is acceptable. You can't sue them or anything else. All you can do is collect unemployment or find a new job.

    And yes I think anyone that disparages the company and it's reputation needs to go.

    yes you do.

    And if you no longer want that person in your employ then it is the right thing to do.

    No, you don't. I hope you don't find yourself in a very expensive wrongful termination suit one day.

    Freedom of speech is a civil right. There are laws against violating someone's civil rights. Unless this cat violated mpany policy, he can't be fired for showing his ass.

Like I said, this is probably the primary reason the US is falling apart. If the country were solely liberal or solely conservative, it would function great, but with two major warring factions, it does not work so well.

    If people just went off and did their own thing, we would not have a society that actually did its job for humanity. This is basic sociology dude.
    You're all for that, until that societal regulation goes against something you agree with. Jim Crow was society regulating itself. White only bathrooms was society regulating itself. Gay marriage laws are society regulating itself. See the slippery slope you've created?
