    You come off as the end all and be all on what actually happened in this case... when the FACT is you don't have a clue as the the facts behind his motivations, those of his union, etc... any more that I have a clue.

    I argue a possibility... I am willing to accept the 'possibility' either way, while you argue as if your word is 'fact', and beyond contestation. You have no interest in 'discussion' or 'debate'... all you seem to care to do is explain to everyone that you are correct and everyone else is wrong.

    I feel sad for you.

    It's not clearly anything, and you need to be more specific than saying " a lot of conservative posters here". How is that at all relevant unless you can connect "conservative posters" then, to the "conservative posters" now?

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.

    I have no problem from a legal stand point or anything with the company firing him from that job. He made a choice, they reacted based on what they felt was best for their job.

    That doesn't keep it from being absolutely idiotic and frankly sad that you're going to do that because you'er so pathetically politically ignorant or so raging hyperpartisan that you view the shirt as a political statement.

    Don't feel sad for me. Unlike most on this thread I do not take what the reporter or the"victim" said at face value. Some here used the story to trash democrats, the union and even Obama, when they don't even know if the supervisor that fired him was a democrat or republican. I am arguing a possiblity too and when I do people say I must be wrong because there is no evidence either way. The fact is I don't buy it and that's my stand. The media has been known to embellish the truth before just to make a story out of a non-story.
    Do we even know yet if he was fired or just sent home with pay?

    Practically every post you made in this thread says otherwise, and you don't even realize it. How sad.

    Do you even read what you write? I have disputed everything the reporter and "victim" have said. If you can't at least be honest I am finished here.

    apologies... where you said 'reporter', I read 'union'.

    My intent was to say that you have disputed everything the worker said, regardless of what you have factual knowledge of, and have tried to pass off your 'opinion', as fact... throwing a hissy fit ant anyone who disagrees with you.

    Better?

    This is how liberals REALLY look at "free speech".

    So the US Navy is now insulting to union members? seriously?
