    Well you made the unsupported accusation and claim. It would support your view point if you did or are you thinking I'm going to waste my time trying to prove your unsupportable point? That's a good one.

    Evidence that he sought a reporter out?
    Evidence it was contrived?

    All you do is make accusations... now take your nose out of "Rules for Radicals" and provide proof because, sorry, you're common sense isn't sense at all.
    Evidence? The only evidence of anything is the internet interview. You guys bought it all hook line and sinker. No questions asked. What does that tell you about you ?

    Why did the guy decide to wear the Bush shirt(it looked brand new) on the Obama job? Why did he decide to honor his son that day? At work?
    Do you think he must have known his supervisor well enough to know how he would react wearing a BUSH shirt at the Obama job?
    Why did he seek out the media? He must have, they don't go looking for people that get sent home now, do they?
    Why didn't he turn it inside out if he wanted to stay at work? Principle? Too bad.
    When a supervisor tell you to do something at work, in order to keep your job you do it, right? The supervisor was trying to cover his own ass. Agree?
    Is the shirt wearer an Obama supporter or does he hate Obama?
    I am skeptical of this entire event, yet you all seem to believe everything you see on the internet.

    I'm simply going to ignore anything else you write until you provide evidence. Until that happens, I'll simply write your nonsense off as well... nonsense.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    SOME people have the cognitive ability to separate their politics from their personal lives... an ability you apparently lack.

    You appear to be skeptical of anything that does not agree with your preconceived notions of how something really is... how sad for you.

    That is total BS and dishonest. You people blamed the union, democrats and even Obama when the it was only one guy, the supervisor, that sent him home and you don't even know if the boss was a democrat or republican. It was a non event until the shirt wearer got on TV and gave the republicans another opportunity to trash the democrats. It really was pretty pathetic.
    And no I don't buy it that he decided to wear his favorite shirt to work that day to honor his son at work. It was just a coincidence that it had BUSH in giant letters on it. Give me a break.

    Now the shirtman is planning a lawsuit. Who would have guessed?

    He wore a shirt. He got fired for it. It's his employers right to do so. Nothing I can disagree with. If this had been Juan Williams everybody on the right would bitch and complain about freedom of speech until he went off to join FOX who has as many liberals as a KKK meeting in Louisiana.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    FOXNews.com - Two Sue Feds Over Anti-Bush T-Shirt Arrest - You Decide 2004

    CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A couple arrested for wearing anti-Bush T-shirts (search) to a July 4 presidential appearance filed a federal lawsuit on Tuesday alleging their First Amendment (search) rights were violated.

    Nicole and Jeff Rank were removed from the event at the West Virginia Capitol in handcuffs after revealing T-shirts with President Bush's name crossed out on the front. Nicole Rank's shirt had the words "Love America, Hate Bush" on the back and Jeff Rank's said "Regime change starts at home."


    Gee, what do you know? The republicans do it too. You guys must be so embarrassed for all the phoney outrage.

    Yeah, whaddya know, their kids were on the anti-Bush Navy ship that the anti-Bush commands as commander in chief. Totally the same thing.
