    Your ignorance here is obviously quite intentional, because as so many people have pointed out to you -- the govenment has imposed no consequences for his racism.

    In most other cases, employment is at will. If your racist activity becomes a detriment to the company you'll probably get fired anyway.
    You dodged my question.

    That's Bundys problem not your problem not your business.

    Of course it's Bundy's problem. It's called the consequences of exercising your right of free speech.

    So you do want to curb people's freedom of speech, interesting.

    Here's one I remember off the top of my head:

Compare this to the hoods I drove through in the valley on the road to Gilroy (The Old Monterey Highway) where I saw mostly Hispanics and the difference is kind of right in your face. The trash was literally piled up against fences, stray dogs roam the streets, houses are unkempt, lawns not mowed and junk cars that have not run in years sit on blocks. Yes it looks just like Mexico and that was the point of my OP. California is turning into Mexifornia.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    You have to rember the dix chicks also dissed their fans and people like me just decided not to buy their music. We did not however demand their record company drop them.
