I'll pass. I think she was looking for a fight and while its his business and he makes the rules, I won't do business with folks who try to abridge political speech.

Like John McCain for instance.

Like John McCain for instance.

1) It's probably not true.
2) The First Amendment only guarantees that Congress has no authority to abridge freedom of speech. It says nothing about private individuals, who are entitled to fire anyone they want, any time, for any reason. Any law attempting to censure this employer for that reason is in fact abridging the employer's rights to free association, private property, and much else.

So, right you are about McCain, and wrong about this employer.
