It is not God who kills the children. Not fate that butchers them or destiny that feeds them to the dogs. It's us. Only us - Rorschach
Its every American's right to act like an asshole.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
now we see where this practice originated
at romney's urging
Romney to bosses: Tell workers how to vote | The Raw Story... “I hope you make it very clear to your employees what you believe is in the best interest of your enterprise and therefore their job and their future in the upcoming elections,” Romney told members of the ostensibly nonpartisan National Federation of Independent Business, an anti-union group whose endorsements tend to align with Republicans.
“And whether you agree with me or you agree with President Obama, or whatever your political view, I hope — I hope you pass those along to your employees,” he added. “Nothing illegal about you talking to your employees about what you believe is best for the business, because I think that will figure into their election decision, their voting decision and of course doing that with your family and your kids as well.” ...
Media and other sources tell us to vote for everyday. However, you fail to notice that the CEO is not just telling them who to vote for, he is threatening their jobs. You also asked what I meant by handled accordingly (please calm down by the way lol) and what I meant was someone of authority should remind him that he can't threaten peoples' jobs indirectly to make them vote for who he wants to win the election. The CEO did say in the video that he caused George Bush to win the elections before and it may have been illegal. I'm just paying attention to details, sorry if I have been upsetting you in any way.

how is that not within the bailiwick of his right to free speech
yes, because i wanted to know how you would propose that person's legitimate comments be 'handled'You also asked what I meant by handled accordingly (please calm down by the way lol)
and chances are good that i am stoned when responding, so be assured i have no need to calm down ... if i could only find some chocolate to snack on
and who in authority would you deem appropriate to restrict this person's legitimate free speech. for extra credit, tell us what standard operating procedures would be used to ensure the next victim of this person of authority was not you, inhibiting how you are able to speak. and for a gold star, explain for us what prevents this employer from firing his employees if the candidate he does not support win the election... and what I meant was someone of authority should remind him that he can't threaten peoples' jobs indirectly to make them vote for who he wants to win the election.
and despite all of your words you have been unable to share with us why the comments of that CEO are found to be other than protected by the free speech provisions of the ConstitutionThe CEO did say in the video that he caused George Bush to win the elections before and it may have been illegal. I'm just paying attention to details, sorry if I have been upsetting you in any way.
the only thing upsetting about your posts is your continued inability to offer anything of substance to defend them
