    I see this as freedom of associatin issue really not nessacerly a speach issue. Either way if the employer wants to be stupid, they should be able to be stupid. Also one more reason to be SELF employed, you dont have to put up with dingbats like that if you dont want to.

    I spit at lots of people through my computer screen. Not only does it "teach them a lesson" but it keeps the screen clean and shiny.
    Stolen fair and square from the Capt. Courtesey himself.

    Of course. If Ayn Rand had been consistent, she would have let her publishers get the lion's share of the profit from her books, because they "created her job." How much capital did she risk in writing them? So, by her principles, she's lucky she got enough to live on from her bestsellers.

    How is this different from the president of Notre Dame saying that he wouldn't let his team play in the New Orleans bowl game if the people of Louisiana elected David Duke as governor?

    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
