    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    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 would tell the pastor that his thinking that freedom of expression has limits to this extent is offensive... oh, and that there is no god.

    PC is a liberal term invented to restrict people's Freedom of Speech.

    This shows you clearly don't understand what Freedom of Speech means.

    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.

    Far right wingers like yourself can never seem to get enough of feeling victimized by something or other.
    It's all a vast far right wing conspiracy...

    You've got it wrong my friend, you can't call the Right the evil, heartless tyrant's who despise the oppressed, the down trodden, and then say they're wallowing in their victimhood...

    There is no reason for the PC police on this... Obama and the Obamaphiles from the word go has been pouty little man-childs about his delicate sensibilities...

    What on earth are you talking about?

    This has absolutely nothing to do with Obama. A company took action against political speech that violates its guidelines for employee conduct. That's it, end of story.

    Yeah , I seen where what was in my head didn't make it to the post, fixed it for ya...

    Of course, for someone going about telling others what they "obviously know nothing about" you'd think you'd catch the meaning by inference, but...alas...
