    Re: 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E

    I'm confused. So if I'm offended by a public personality, such as a TV star, because they said something that I found offensive enough to think they shouldn't be in the public eye, I'm being politically correct?

    Could be. It depends upon what was said and the context in which it was said.

    Well, I would have to ask, "whose politics?"

    One of the good ones on A&E that I haven't seen in a while is "Billy the Exterminator". I really liked that show but, like everything else, after a while, it gets too repetitive.

    IDK, for the same reasons progressives use the EPC as an argument - you should be well versed there if you're smart.
    So you have no argument?

    True, but there is such a thing as "going overboard" or "blowing things way out of porportion" even in business. Still, alittle perspective goes a long way. So, let me throw this out there and see if folks will still hold the same views...

    Remember when Gen. McCrystal was fired for giving an interview w/Rolling Stone magazine where he spoke out against Pres. Obama's handling of the War in Afghanistan? I wonder if people see this Duck Dynasty's celebraty's firing in much the same light because they parallal in comparison.

    Both gave interviews to a private publishing company.

    Both exercised their right to free speech and spoke out on an issue they felt and believed strongly about.

    Both worked for somebody towhich they had to answer to for their actions.

    Which firing was more or less justified?

    Debate!
