This is the most classic answer right here: "Ok maybe my part about assasination was a bit harsh" but not the "N" Word?

Also love people that say the 'N" Word like that and then go on to say but i am not racist i have plenty of friends who are of all ethnicity's etc. Ok keep telling yourself that!

I call my wife my little honkey momma but that's different. What that chcik did is uncalled for. He is our president and deserves some respect. I would like to know what she thought Mittens would do for her if Obama hasn't done anything.

"my little honkey momma" That's cute!

As a white guy, I wouldn't mind, in the least, being referred to as a honkey, or cracka, or whatever. I'd feel kind of left out, if I didn't have a racial slur that applied to me.

When will people learn not to post everything to the world?

I hope you didn't copy and paste that from somewhere, DP.

Private corporations have a right to dictate what their employees can and cannot do. Some even attempt to get their employees to eat healthy and not smoke, so the health care costs won't be so high.

As for comments about the job or employees or even racists rants: It does not make the company look good, and in this hyper-sensitive day and age, bad publicity is not good. If I had a company and someone spouted racist nonsense, the last thing that I want would be the negative publicity and I would fire that person. Working at any job is not a right, it is a privilege.

Finally, Facebook is public domain. Any company has a right to check up on their employees via Facebook. However, I am sure in the future that they will bug their phones, employ cameras and follow you home!

A company has the right to dictate what their employees can and cannot do while at work or away from work but directly dealing with work. They do not hold any power otherwise over your personal life.

When you keep your Facebook completely public, yeah, you're asking for trouble. If you keep it private, though? Well, I just want to say I'm particularly disturbed by this growing trend I mentioned earlier of employers asking for your FB as part of the interview process.

Arguably. If she did it in a Cold Stone Creamery outfit (Did she? I can't watch the vide) I could see the case for it. If she tagged it "Sponsored by cold stone creamery," there'd be a case there. The only correlation is that she's a dirtbag and she happens to work for coldstone, though.

I don't think a lot of ordinary citiZens even realize the serious consequences of their actions half the time!!! For instance...There's a house down the street that has been abandon by the owner who is living in France.

I think about the furniture and antiques left in that house!!!....Let's say that i should enter the property late one night and attempt to salvage some of those items that i see in the window......I would be chased down by police dogs...bitten on the leg...handcuffed thrown into a police car....accused of trespassing...finger printed and booked like a common criminal....

Unfathomable!!!

I don't think an "ordeinary citiZen" would fathom doing that because it is theft. I don't think they would be surprised when they were arrested for doing so as well.

Ooh Guest...It must be nice to be Sooo perfect!! And i didn't spell it "ordeinary citiZen"!!! lol

It was just meant as an EXAMPLE of how "things" can get outta hand that a person never bargained for!!! I'm sure a hardened criminal would have known a better way of handling the situation!!!

I think it's fairly standard practice for people not to break into other peoples' homes and rummage through their stuff when they're not around.

see what funny about freedom of speech is: people always are afraid of the government repressing it, when really its always the "free market" that does haha

But, what if they have really cool stuff? I could use a new TV and easy chair....And I might want to prance around in some lingerie...er, never-mind.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 10, 2012 9:56:58 AM PST
Ooh Really??? What's really ludicrous is that people are allowed by law to abandon their property FOREVER...with no consequences...Just let it deteriorate and bring down property values in the neighborhood!!!...

People's actions affect more than just them!!!

It's their property. That's the point. Just because you lack a Home Owner's Association to enforce upkeep of the house and yard doesn't mean you suddenly have the right to break in and filch their goods.

Forget the right to bear arms, I think one of the REAL inaliable rights is the right not to have your stuff screwed with without your permission.

Crazy broad. I bet she thought Bush was an outstanding president.

I'm not huge on Obama or anything, but this is just asinine.
