    So, we've got a he-said/she-said. People have been fired for less. *shrug*

    The 1st Amendment is a contract between the Government and the people. It does not say a private concern cannot fire someone for what they say. It's done all the time, wake up and smell the coffee.

    the article does make it sound like that.
    A closer reading makes it seem that these "goons" were subscribers.
    I may be wrong.

    wrong it is an Inherent Right granted by our Creator. the bill of Rights wasn't written to give us those rights it was written so those rights could not be taken away. This is one of the fundamental differences between the Right and the Left. The left believes our rights come from government granted to them by the Bill of Rights. The Right knows they are Inherent Rights granted by our Creator and the Bill of Rights was to keep government from taking them away

    the Constitution isn't an enabling document is was written as a limiting document

    don't jump on this took quickly ... we may find out later that the editor was screwing one of his employee's spouses or playing with the books ...

    of coarse it has to be something else. no Obama supporter would ever make a newspaper fire a reporter for being critical of Obama

    Seems like I remember some very inflammatory Bush headlines. Funny though, I can't recall anyone ever being fired over them.
