    Re: Phil Robertson returns to A&E

    I predict that Rodeo Girls will soon eclipse Duck Dynasty as A&Es top show.
    DD has run it's course .
    Who would rather watch five bearded actors acting goofy in camos and gay bashing when they could be watching pretty girls riding horses in bikinis?

    As they were not gay bashing, obviously many would.

    Sure, but you start running into the area of where one person's right ends and another begins. If someone wanted to put a sign on my yard that said "Bristol Palin for President," am I silencing their free speech by not allowing that? It is my yard after all. The same kind of principle is at play here, while Phil may have the right to say what he wants, A&E has the right not to broadcast it don't they?

    Everybody screams about "their freedom" when it's their side. There was something not too long ago about a coffee shop owner having some kind of policy about Obama voters having to pay more. Conservatives at that time were all about "His business, his right." Now that it's happening to someone who says what they want to hear it's all about the concept of "freedom of speech!"

    what?

    what does that have to do with the discussion? No one's right's are impeded in anyway by the statements someone gives in a magazine interview, and as a hypothetical it couldn't have less bearing on the point of discussion

    It is my yard after all.
    Yeah, no ****. But what does that have to do with anything here?

    The same kind of principle is at play here, while Phil may have the right to say what he wants, A&E has the right not to broadcast it don't they?
    No one denied they did, but you are intentionally ignoring that A&E's actions were in response to a threatened commercial boycott

    Everybody screams about "their freedom" when it's their side.
    Oh please, stfu with your usual moronic partisan bitching. I don't care what conservatives did in some totally vague and unrelated incident.

    Conservatives at that time were all about "His business, his right." Now that it's happening to someone who says what they want to hear it's all about the concept of "freedom of speech!"
    I suggest you look up the term "guilt by association". Other than that, I don't need to validate or answer for what other conservatives do or say

    Why did it "have to happen"? Curious as to your rationale for that statement.
    Because he was not on A&E time when giving the interview. It would be the same if a company decided to fire you for drinking if they were in fact against drinking while away from your job.

    You don't have the right to a job, and if you publicly embarrass your employer, they are well within their rights to fire you.
    so lets say your company catches you drinking it public, it is against their wishes, think they should fire you?
