    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Everyone that "Liked" Mafia Wars is now a criminal. /sarcasm

    Although, if a security/intel agency wanted to build a "mentality portfolio" of you based on your likes.... Perhaps it could actually be misconstrued/misused.

    They'd love mine...

    "Likes"... bacon, root beer floats, gummy worms, pizza, etc. Overweight. Check.

    Re: "Liking" Something on Facebook Not Protected by First Amendment

    Thought I would throw this into the mix. Many people allow others access to their facebook or twitter or whatever social site. Lets say an ex GF or BF or disgruntled friend or family member was to get on someones site and start screwing with them. How would anyone actually know? That can be used as a defense. The person charged with "liking" something can say someone else did it. They may actually be correct with that excuse too. Hard to prove or disprove that. At best the person making the excuse can prove that other do or did have access and could have done it.

    Still though, in 1st ammendment cases, I don't know if this truly meets criteria. I think it is more of a privacy issue. If I publically denounce my employers and wish them to lose their job, nothing good is going to come from that. If I had private discussion that was made public without my knowledge or consent????

    I couldn't even guess how they'd classify me:

    cooking, Ikea, baking, Texas Longhorns football, Wii Fit, potato skins, guacamole, wine, state fair of Texas, UT, cuddling, sleep, Dallas Cowboys, reading, "Hey Lebron, How's my Dirk Taste?"

    I would bet this will be overturned on appeal. They have a right to support the candidate they want, even if that candidate is running against their boss. Are we going to start discharging soldiers who "like" Mitt Romney's Facebook page?

    Liking something is basically saying I like this or I like that.How in the hell can that judge say this is not a 1st amendment issue?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
