    As an employer, you are required by law to inform new hires of exactly what is expected of them. If you can't do that, you have no grounds to fire them, if they didn't know they were violating a company policy.

    This is not about freedom of speech.

    In my opinion it is more about property rights.

    His employer's property rights don't extend to the chick filet drive through.

    So this guy is going to be one of the few who apply for unemployment this month. His employer is paying it. An employer has the right to fire its employees. The employee did not represent the employer to their expectations. All is fair.

    They do when it reflects on the company.

    Now why don't you actually respond to my post. Funny thing that, you responded to everyone else?

    It depends on the nature of the relationship between the employee and employer. For instance, the position in which I work is characterized as "employment-at-will," meaning my employer can terminate my employment at any time for any reason the company deems necessary without informing me why. Likewise, I can quit whenever I want for whatever reason I want without telling the company why. Now, if there is some sort of employment contract (like a collective bargaining agreement) that might be a different matter.

    Either way, this isn't about the First Amendment. Like I said earlier, it MIGHT be grounds for a civil suit, but it's not a violation of the First Amendment.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    There are probably laws that prohibit firing someone for something like this, but the Constitution doesn't prohibit it.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
