Also i believe one them said some offensive stuff before too? no?

    anyway thanks for the link ill check it out.
    wow lol

    ok so its confirmed that he made some moronic, bigoted, ignorant, uneducated and offensive statements

    now what?is he being reprimanded some how and are people bother by that?
    or is he not being reprimanded some how and people are bothered by that, seems he is being punished

    sorry im being lazy lol

    anyway if he is being reprimanded for his statements all i can say is well duh? lol

    the dummy said some very stupid stuff and "typically" in his line of work you have conduct clauses in your contract and what not and if you violate them this is what happens.

    now if he had no such catch all in his contract then i guess theres an issue but making moronic bigoted statements like those is going to have repercussions, thats just common sense.

    I think the issue could have been avoided if the interviewer hadn't set him up. He HAD to know how Robertsin was going to answer the question and if he did, he shouldn't have asked the question.

    The Libbos might want to temper their outrage. The Duck Dynasty vote has already gotten one United States congressman elected. It would suck for the Libbos if every single member of theDuck block voted against a Democrat, because of the way the Libbos treated Phil Robertson.

    Making a big deal out of this is a bad business decision for A&E and a bad political move for the Libbos.
    I don't think he was suggesting Phil lie, but think twice or even three times before giving an interview that would damage his employer. People do this all the time, even those who are not on prominent cable networks.

    I do fund raising work and my name is on materials asking for support. As such, were I to speak out on political issues in my community, I could easily offend those who don't agree who could then rescind their support. So I keep shut. Is my freedom of speech being harmed? I guess that is up for debate, but I can live with it.

    This is the important stuff. We can’t get lost in discrimination. We can’t get lost in B.S. We can’t get lost tearing each other down. I want to make a point here that no matter what you look like, where you come from, how you worship, who you love, how you identify, and yeah, how you run, that if you have good public policy ideas, if you are well qualified for office, bring those ideas to the table, because this is your America, too. This is our commonwealth of Virginia, too.

    I do not need to include the sins we already know he was talking about.
    He was speaking of sins.
    It seems that bigoted people have a problem with what sins are.

    So can I, and I am working with a strong directive to refer everything to my employer's public info officer. But none of us knows Robertson's contract details. For example, was he required to vet potential interviews? What is A&E's policy on having media-rep "handlers" to "assist" its stars with interviews? Etc.
