    Re: CEOs taking away political freedom of workers.

    I hope that you are not suggesting that the CEO monster that detests the democratic rights of workers is a new phenomenon?

    Unions were targeted a long long time ago - there is a direct relationship between the demise and crushing of workers Unions and the emergence of the fascist Corpocracy

    Your posted image is offensive, not just because it is incorrect, but you don't even know the difference between fascism and nazism. Board rules prevent me from characterizing you further.

    You seem to be always worried about everything but what the topic is

    There were 3 major forms of fascism to emerge in the 20th century

    Bolshevism
    Nazism
    Corporatism

    Youre living in one now and yet it doesnt offend you. Your concern for symbols is touching as your once great nation yields to the tyrannical corporate fascists and yet you sit there and do nothing

    now that is interesting!

    you misrepresent what he said

    ... just like the CEO

    He may have no way of knowing who votes for who, but the threat is still there and should be handled accordingly.
    that's right. he has NO way of knowing how they actually voted
    so, who is going to handle it accordingly
    and what the hell does 'handle it accordingly' mean. what exactly do you propose be done to that CEO

    Some of those workers might believe that he, the CEO, can find out who they vote for and give in to his threat causing that employee to not vote based on their beliefs.
    wait, if the listener is too ignorant of their rights, the nannystate is supposed to step in and make sure things are not said to them which exploits their stupidity
    who is in charge of the group assigned to fulfill this function and what is its standard operating procedure

    The goal of this nation is to have our people vote for who they wish to vote for, not to vote for someone they were told/forced to vote for.
    it is the RIGHT of citizens to vote for the candidate of their choice
    we get told to vote for someone every day via commercials on the net, print media, radio and televisions. why not just allow individuals to exercise their right instead of asking for a nannystate response to a non-issue

    sure he can
    what prevents him from doing so?

    A) How will he know who they voted for?
    B) Even if he did know, it would still probably be covered under discrimination laws. You can't fire someone for their political beliefs. You have to find a real reason.
