Sybarite: The comments section on that article has more butthurt than Hurtbutt McButthurty III.
I_Am_Weasel: Sybarite: The comments section on that article has more butthurt than Hurtbutt McButthurty III.I was going to say something similar. It was a fascinating read, for a few comments, then it just because painful.
Weaver95: I honestly don't know if its legal to do or not. Here in Pennsylvania it probably would be legal to fire all the registered democrats in your company. we're kinda dicks when it comes to employment. Of course, you'll likely face a backlash for doing so, not to mention destroying your workplace morale and pissing off your customers. not a smart move in a tight economy.

I suppose that both sides could make an argument that it's a violation of their right to protest peacefully
alywa: Culling a few idiots from the heard is good for everyone.
mab1823: Couldn't this fall under voter intimidation?
SlothB77: A government in control of health care has that power.
SlothB77: I am a sure a government, once in full control of health care, will never use politics to provide/ deny health care. You think firing someone over who they vote for is sick. Imagine a government with the power to deny someone health care if they don't toe the party line. A government in control of health care has that power.
Recoil Therapy: Laying people of in anticipation of that makes sense.
xanadian: alywa: Stay Free! Live Strong! God Bless America!!!You know what, Stuart, I LIKE YOU. You're not like the other people, here, in the trailer park.
Nonrepeating Rotating Binary: So you're a hate-mongering racist asshole. We get that. And the word is 'right', not 'write', which you can barely do. If you had a problem running a business, it was clearly your lack of education and competence and not anything else. But of course, hatefilled people like you always find others to blame their problems on.

Epoch_Zero: This is an outrage! I must channel my anger at the horrible muslin presidonk! I must express my feelings in some form - oh, I know...[i0.kym-cdn.com image 500x336]
doyner: i just read the comments and....well...I really can't tell if those are actual opinions or a heaping helping of Poeslaw.
InmanRoshi: It's a d1ck move, but employers (of private institutions) should have the right to hire and fire based on political beliefs. On the other end of the coin, those fired have every right to go onto every forum available to let the paying public know that the business is operated by fascist, bigoted troglodytes and not worthy of your business.
alywa: Cry more, libs.Politicla party afiliation is no more a protected class than sexual orientation or religion. If it is a private business, the owner can fire whoever he wants. I don't know why a business owner would keep socialists on the staff anyways.1. Obama is killing small business and small business owners. Taxes at alltime high's, regulations squeezing out profits from large and small companies alike, outrageous minimum wage increases... it is a bad time to be a job creator (or as you so stupidly call them, a 1% er).2. Obamacare is unafforadable for everyone. I don't care if you are Wal-Mart or Minimart, paying workers is enough. Why should business owners be responsible for their healthcare? Add in forced abortion and geneder-reasignment surgeries coverages, Obamacare is the single worst law ever forced down America's throat.3. I owned a business for many years. I simply wasn't comfrortable with certain people (my reasons are mine, not you'res)... why sould I have to hire them? I can fire them for any reason I feel like. Ever heard of Write to Work states. Basically I can give written notice and fire anyone I want.You libs are butthurt that the people who actually make this country work are fighting back. Culling a few idiots from the heard is good for everyone.Stay Free! Live Strong! God Bless America!!![i35.photobucket.com image 372x190]
Frozboz: They're a lot more common than I thought they'd be, and if I were right-leaning, this realization would be horribly depressing.
Weaver95: the constitution only reigns in government. corporations can violate your rights any way they want and there's very little you can actually do about it. if a CEO tells his HR people to fire all the libruls in his company, I'm pretty sure he can do it. which doesn't mean he won't face a backlash for doing so....but that's a whole other issue.
AnotherBluesStringer: Even if she loses, she wins. Chances are she'll bring the fact that you quite possibly can legally get fired for your political beliefs to the national stage. It'll be interesting to see what happens when it gets there.However, if this were a liberal company owner firing a conservative for voting for Romney, you bet your sweet ass we'd be hearing the phrase "religious persecution" a hell of a lot more./And you do have a sweet ass.
Parthenogenetic: Good luck proving that she was fired for her political affiliation.She worked for a defense contractor in Dayton OH, where the local economy is highly dependent upon Wright Patterson Air Force Base, and just about everyone is hunkering down for the anticipated cuts due to the imminent sequester.
HotIgneous Intruder: alywa: Culling a few idiots from the heard is good for everyone.Th eliminationist rhetoric is evocative of the final solution stylings of 1940s Germany.But I still can't give this troll more than a 2 out of 10.So solly. Take a class.
