    As long as your not on the clock one can say whatever they want IMHO. Barring disbarring the product.

    So you've said that companies can't fire you for what you say. But they can.

    But hey, if you think you didn't say that, who am I to quibble? lots of other people did.

    Way to misconstrue the argument. Duck guy exercised his first amendment rights -- nobody said he didn't. "First amendment issue," in the context of this discussion, means "were his first-amendment rights violated." Don't be so dishonest.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.
