    Well, I'm not sure I understand your post. But civil liberties also don't stop at firing/hiring at will sans contract.

    I don't have a lot of confidence in the Obama administration but surely someone clued them into the fact that anyone working in/for the White House would have signed a code of conduct which in all likelihood did indeed park the employee's civil liberties at the door.

    Yeah they do...

    An opinion is just an opinion.... If criticism changed anythings alone this US would be a different place...

    IMO, I wouldn't do a job/take a job if it conflicted with my moral or ethical views, however my point still stands.

    That's fine. But I don't understand your point.

    Is it that one should be able to say anything they wish about White House administration while they're working there? If that's your point? You're obviously quite wrong.

    A US citizen cannot "waive" their civil liberties without a judge present.

    If they want a job in the White House, they can - but then, nobody forces them to take the job. Do you honestly think anyone working for government, particularly at such high levels, can do or say whatever they want?

    No, not on treason (which is a crime) or classified documents which also falls under treason (among numerous other crimes that could be construed as treason), however having an opinion on an issue that is well within the public domain is NOT a crime it's a critique.

    This administration is clearly being operated as a an authoritarian clone of the 40's and 50's Soviet Union.... These clowns just don't have the military to enforce their authoritarian tyranny -- nor will they ever -- on the contrary..... I wouldn't be shocked to see a Military Coup by the US Armed forces in 6-18 months...

    The only people that would give a **** then would be Wall Street, Pelosi, Gore, Kerry and the rest of the thieves in suits ....

Seeing the commotion, Obama ordered one of his secret service agents to arrest the IRS agent who told his boss, who told his boss, who emailed his wife, who tweeted her lover, whereupon her lover's husband started a thread in his favorite political debate forum, dissing gays in general, which cranked up the NSA computers once again, this time intercepted by another programming "glitch" on healthcare.gov which routed the thread via AlJazeera's portal to the kitchen server in the White House; the post having been re-transcribed into Farsi, albeit in a dialect causing the head chef to interpret it as a meal request for Ms. Sebelius, who can't stand tabouleh. Meanwhile, Obama shot a 64 on the back nine, which he recorded in his smart phone and emailed to Michelle, whose computer was also infected by the healthcare.gov virus, and was inadvertently given the records of a 64 year old woman from Toledo, who happened to be the aunt of the white house aid, who told her nephew of the strange call she'd received from the first lady. Splurting his tabouleh over keyboard, an aid thought he was choking and started administering the Heimlich maneuver, which earned him a jab in the face, which initiated an investigation....

    Competence sometimes takes a circuitous route to complete.

    The funny thing, is if he had merely picked on the (R)'s, they would have let him slide. It is a rare event that this administration fires someone.. no matter what they do.
