For some strange reason, a lot of people incorrectly think the First Amendment protects their right to say whatever they want. If they believe that, they should test it by yelling in their boss’s face. We do have the right to say whatever we want, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be repercussions.

Exactly and the example I always give is what if a WalMart greeter told every customer coming in, “Welcome to WalMart. F-— you.” Boss says don’t do that, he/she still does it.
Gets fired. But...freedom of speech!
repercussions: See Dixie Chicks...

it goes back to the "Free Speech Movement" on campuses in the 1960's (which was not really about free speech at all, but about cramming Liberalism up your nose whether you liked it or not)
We do have a right to free speech!
