    And it's not a bad thing that you think you wouldn't do well in corporate management. That's a plus in most circles.
    Yeah, in the context of a press statement, I can see how that could hurt the company's image. For some reason I was thinking more about water cooler talk.

    Well yeah...water cooler talk is a totally different story. It would take something EXTREMELY unprofessional comparable to sexual harassment for me to even take notice of it.

    But you would be surprised how much people come to you bitching about what someone said "at the water cooler" too. I just ignore it for the most part.

    Just tell them "It's The Basement" and walk away leaving them going "WTF?"

    He actually seemed pretty amused by the whole thing when it happened too. I don't blame him. It was absurd that someone threw shoes at him.

    That's ridiculous. I've seen many people criticize Obama for many things (a lot of which were well-deserved) and the only people I've seen bring up racism are those who criticize. It's usually the tail end of the criticism too: "I'm sure I'll be labeled as a racist for criticizing The One" I mean, perhaps if aaronsongs were still here he would cry racism, but other than that I haven't really seen anything. I've seen people apologize for him and make excuses for him, but not really much more than that.

    Oh yes; that evil act in an attempt to protect Americans from the terrorists who so desperately wish to kill even more than they did on 9-11.

    Your emotional hysterics are.....well, hysterical.

    Hmmm so I guess you forget that Mr. Bush was against the Patriots Act when it was first introduced in Congress oh you forgot about that right oh and who introduced the Patriots act and who passed it as a Law. Might want to do some checking up on this before you make post.

    It does not matter if it had good intentions, it **** on the Constitution. If I call for a genocide of all Muslims, does it matter if my intentions are good or not?

    Your emotional hysterics are.....well, hysterical.
    I'm not being emotional, I'm merely discussing an issue of contention. Brush up on your perception skills.

    Whether you are being intellectually dishonest or are just ignorant of the way things work in government is up for debate.

    The USA PATRIOT Act, commonly known as the "Patriot Act", is a statute enacted by the United States Government that President George W. Bush signed into law on October 26, 2001.

    I'll quote this for you, since it applies:
