    I kind of lean towards the thinking that if you say that every CEO has to do such and such, then that's what you mean, since it's just as easy to say "most" or "almost every". Otherwise, who the hell knows what the f**k you mean?

    You have to say what you mean, to mean what you say. When some people get busted not meaning what they say, because they can't say what they mean, they get a little touchy.

    Want to keep playing reaindeer games, or address comments that I actually posted?

    Senator Ultra Liberal donates to the Nazi Party. Should he lose his job over this, yes or no?

    At this point you stopped replying to me altogether. As you can see, I gave you a gazillion opportunities to deny it or clarify yourself. If you choose to do so now, I will instantly take it back. Otherwise, please tell me why I shouldn't conclude that you don't think voters are allowed to vote out the Senator for his contribution to the Nazi Party.

    What would happen if the CEO of some company (Whole Foods, or McDonalds, for example) decided to force out or fire every employee who donated money to support a proposition raising the minimum wage? They are legitimately protecting their business and the interests of their customers, right? Freedom of Association/Speech, correct?

    Oh, and let me throw this out there. I have Mozilla on one computer. The next time I use that computer, I will unistall Mozilla (FireFox). I don't like the way they are intolerant to people's beliefs, and I hope others that support people not being attacked in such a manner will do so also.

    And, at no point did I say that a politician's constituents do not have the right to vote him out of office.

    I'm stopped for the night. I have 10 hours to play this game. Lie and fabricate all you want.

    I see an answer, and I see someone trying to twist it around. Tsk, tsk.

    I could be wrong, but I think they could do this, but would be liable for some hefty severance penalties for it.
