    You can always walk away from a private company.

    I simply ask the question, do you not understand what a question is?

    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism. If someone was being jailed for speaking out against Obama, then you could say their freedom of speech was violated.
    I clearly do. I did not state that liberals are attempting to arrest people. I stated that they are trying to restrict people's Freedom of Speech. If you are unclear as to what I meant I suggest you inquire instead of incorrectly assuming and looking like an ass.

    It’s hard to decide which is scarier: a grinning “Barack Obama” wearing a straightjacket or the reaction to his appearance at one company’s annual Halloween costume party.

    An employee of Jennie Stuart Medical Center in Hopkinsville, Ky., must have thought he had the costume contest all sewn up when he sauntered into the party wearing an Obama mask and a straightjacket.

    And he probably couldn’t believe his luck when he and his two pals actually won the third-place trophy for their Halloween skit “VIP Security,” according to local TV station WZTV.

    However, soon after their shining moment, a snafu erupted over their Obama schtick.

    “I think it is very, very offensive,” C.E. Timberlake, a local pastor, told the TV station. “And really, that shouldn’t have happened.”

    Company officials weren’t impressed either after a photograph of the costumed trio began circulating around the office.

    Is this the first President in our history that is off limits when it comes to jokes and ridicule?
    I wonder how many people that think that a private company admonishing an employee for wearing this costume is OK but that the Muhhamed with a Ticking Time Bomb in his turban in a free press was in horrible taste.

    I'm fine with the company admonishing the employee, contemptuous toward the artist with the second example, and I despise those that advocated violence in response to the illustration. In fact, to go further, those countries that experienced riots over it needed to use their police to arrest and crush the loonies that would cause disorder. As soon as riots and deaths occur over stupid nonsense, I support the police state immediately.

    "Politically Correct" was a term used by socialists to criticize communists in the early 20th century. It did not refer to freedom of speech, but to where loyalty to the party overrode personal judgment and morality.
