    Much ado about not very much, it must be the conservative talking point du jour.
    Don't work out, work in.

    No, they'd be justified if she actually shouted. The woman wasn't actually disturbing anyone.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear

    You are forgetting the picture also showed her giving the finger.
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."

    She's flipping off the graves of servicemen. These soldiers gave their young lives away for our country. I find her actions despictable.

    I think this stuff should be highly publicized for as long as it takes. "As long as it takes for what?" you ask.

    For as long as it takes for idiots to understand that when they take that one extra step of posting their stupid **** on the internet, they are putting their careers in jeopardy.

    She's making a stupid, unfunny joke. You're assigning motivations that aren't necessarily justified.

    Didnt she say she was defying the sign itself, like the picture of her smoking next to a no smoking sign?.

    I used to have a bunch of pictures of my dog Chewey peeing on signs, and even one of those gross abortion signs.

    I don't know that she was being disrespectful of soldiers, but she was mocking a sign.

    The location of the sign is whats setting people off.

    That and disgruntlement over the election.

    Are you saying that every context is equal? Really?
    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.

    Which is absolutely positively chilling free speech.

    "Better not let me catch you sayin or doin anything i disapprove of or yer fired."

    "Get yo ass to church on sunday and produce those receipts for my parties campaign or yer out of here!"

    "I saw that picture of you at that drum circle. No hippies at my shop!"

    And some people claim that working is a coercion free relationship.
