Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals judge

The most overturned court in US History. This will get the boot too. The Employer is completely within his/her rights to set the terms of employment. The employees have no legal leg to stand on.

What next? A lawsuit by CIA employees being required to sign non Discloser contracts?

Given the sabotage at NASA recently (tip of the iceberg?)
the question becomes: Are the judges accomplices before,

Nah, why should we care if JPL or Lawrence Livermore or any other national facility like that is infiltrated? These judges are idiots. /ICan’tBelieveThisHasToBeSarcasm

The employer should just make carrying a firearm a job requirement. Then every employee will be forced to undergo a criminal background check. Problem solved.

Unless, of course, the Ninth Circuit somehow decides that requiring a background check prior to owning a firearm is unConstitutional. But that would probably only apply to illegal immigrants. Citizens would still have to prove that they are not criminals.
