    That being said, if I were this guy's boss I would have certainly fired him for uploading a video of himself being such an assh#le since he will most likely make an assh#ole of the company for which he works, in the fullness of time, if he has not done so already on numerous occasions.
    The right to free speech has absolutely no bearing on your employer's ability to fire you for whatever reason he deems necessary. Once again, simply put, this isn't a First Amendment issue. The First Amendment is about government's ability to limit your right to free speech/express/assembly.
    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.

One of the local franchisees will even feed you if your hungry and don't have the means, so long as you don't make a habit out of it. Also, in our local news, they spent about 10 seconds talking about the appreciation day (with no mention of freedom of speech, which was what it WAS all about), and spent the other 50 seconds interviewing some lesbian. You should watch the 9News stream out of Denver, you'd love it.

    At first I thought Adam was sincere about his apology but it went bad from 1:15 on in this 7:45 minute video.

    I watched and re-watched his “apology video” a few times because he’s a very smart and well spoken man but in the end, I see his video more as an apology to those he was forced to hurt for the “bigger picture” political agenda he has and as an attempt to paint himself as some type of a martyr for the sacrifices he made.

    Watch the entire video but re-watch from 5:35 to 6:10 and tell me that this guy isn’t still considering this Chick-Fil-A employee “collateral damage” for his political agenda and trying to present himself as some kind of a gay rights martyr.

    Re: Viral video of man picking on Chick-fil-A worker gets him fired

    I'm liking some of these comments on YouTube:

    "How ironic is it that this supposed anti hate advocate would be so hateful to this innocent lady while shes at work?"
    "For the life of him, he was not expecting the internet fame he got. He sort of figured this will just be another video to make couple of hundred random viewers chuckle. Bad idea. His "little" mistake is now under the HUGE microscope of internet, being more pronounced day after day. But he's the one who filmed it and put it on youtube, so he has only himself to blame for this disaster. Lost his job, reputation, possibly girlfriend, coworkers/friends. Just goes to show how powerful internet is!"

    The guy is an obvious asshole, but he didn't deserve to be fired.

    His 1st Amendment rights were violated by this action.

    This is what happens if you are an executive and are a public face of a company, maintaining your personal reputation becomes important for continued employment.

    For the last time, the First Amendment pertains to protecting free speech from government action. The 1st Amendment means absolutely nothing in terms of employer-employee relationship. If your employer fires you for something you said, he might be a jerk and it might be a basis for a civil lawsuit, but he did not violate the Constitution.

    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.
