    Well, I wouldn't and cant imagine a conservative would give the bird to the tomb of the unknown soldier. Conservatives would find that highly offensive and immature.

    I would never think to do such a thing..... I suppose one who would think to do such an act would have a problem with our military, and those who have a problem with our military are generally progressives.

    I don't see conservatives crying about the "military industrial complex."

    Welcome to the Information Age with its loss of privacy as well as its global immediacy. Progressives didn't cause these two women to lose their jobs. It's true that lots of folks--and I'm betting that they were from all sides of all aisles--were disgusted and signed a FB petition. And so? Just as Lindsey Stone and Jamie Shuh exercised their First Amendment rights, so did those who brought attention to the photo.

    I guess you missed this whole thread then written up by a proud conservative...

    She is clearly giving the bird to "Silence and Respect".

    Not to the tomb.

    Anyone who honestly thinks otherwise is just plain stupid.

    The "Silence and Respect" part refers to the tomb.

    Who gives a crap what she's giving the bird to?

    The mature response is to ignore her silliness if you're offended by it.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I'm not arguing any of that....

    In the simplest way I can put my point across - progressives made it fashionable to fire people over their political beliefs, when individuals post their political ideas on their social networking sites.

    All I'm saying is progressives opened the door to political discrimination at the workplace.... IMO, people shouldn't be fired for their political views but progressives created an atmosphere where that is acceptable..

    It's become quite common that employees are fired for crap they post on facebook - progressives don't have a problem with it when someone is fired for posting anti-Obama rants, but now they have a problem with it when it's one of their own getting fired.

    But like I said - people shouldn't be fired for their political beliefs. What people do with their own personal time is their business.
    If her presence is such that she drives away customers/clients, because they feel she is an unwelcoming presence, then her actions most certainly DO have a bearing on her job. Given that she worked with veterans, it's not wholly unexpected that many of the company's customers and clients would not welcome what they might deem to be blatant disrespect... of their country and really of themselves.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Apparently there are those who feel that there are some social standards which should be set and respected. Break them at your peril.

    Who has the authority to set these standards, and by what authority are they enforced?
