    So, you ARE advocating the use of physical violence to suppress free speech?

    No. I'm saying that one doesn't know how someone is going to react on the street to an offensive comment. Therefore it is best to think before making derogatory and offensive comments to people in public and on the street.
    Give a man a fish and he can eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he can sit in a boat, drinking beer all day while you fool around with his Woman.

    Sure that their firing practices align with the 1A, as long as the speech in question is not a deliberate attempt to hurt the company.

    Nice deflect, but if someone says "something on the street" that is not to your liking. Its OK to smack them around.

    No deflect. Common sense says one should think before they speak. I don't condone violence. An adult walks away. However not everyone shows restraint. You never know what someone on the street is going to do, therefore it is better to treat others as you yourself expect to be treated. I also don't find humor at the expense of minorities, the impoverished and disenfranchised. It's not funny and shows a serious lack of character and maturity.

    The person getting offended might want to think about the same thing before he starts some ****; he might get some lead in his ass.

    That's a two way street. It's best to treat others with respect all around.

    The funny part was that the Sacco **** got on a flight to South Africa soon after the tweet, but didn't find out she was fired till she got there! Presumably she'll have to pay her own way back.
    Don't work out, work in.

    With each Right, comes responsibility.

    Yes, I believe in Free Speech, and will protect someone's right to exercise their right. However, in exercising their right, they must also take responsibility for the results of exercising that right.

    A little thought for speaking in general: Is what I am about to say going to cause more harm then good?
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.

    That's not what the Constitution says.
