Utah company fires 2 workers who supported Obama

The head of a Utah forensics company says it's only fair that two liberal employees were let go because liberal policies are costing his business.

A Utah business owner says he fired two employees in large part because they supported President Barack Obama.

“They were Obama supporters. We just knew they were," Terry Lee, owner of Terry Lee Forensics, a Cedar City, Utah, digital forensics company, told The Salt Lake Tribune on Thursday.

**SNIP**

Contacted by the Tribune Thursday, Lee said he picked the two employees in large part on the basis of their politics, according to the newspaper. But he added that there were other issues as well, which he didn’t detail, and said the two workers "were not top performers."

Also, from the story, note the terminology. The owner said that he eliminated two “employees”. The left-wing media headlines it using the more socialist sounding term “workers”.

Shucks, and I was hoping there would be some people to laugh at in the workplace as all heck came down on them from the new zer0care, no firearms protection because doctors had found them mentally ill and had disarmed them, higher taxes, along with all sorts of reasons to laugh at the obama supporters. When suffering it helps to laugh. Heck, will now have to go out in public and laugh at the zer0 supporters. At least the zer0 supporters will be unarmed in Conservative states. So no need to worry.

“Well, political orientation is not a protected class, but I bet the Regime will find a way to get him. A little further along in the Hope and Change transforming America and an apparatchik could confiscate the capitalist's ill gotten assets and give them to the worker party members...”

I have a hard time believing this guy didn't know what he was doing when he fired these idiots. My guess is, this company has some attorneys on staff. My guess is, these other reasons for firing these 2 clowns will suffice in this standing. It just probably felt good to get this off of his chest.

Good for this Company!

If you have nutty employees on the payroll espousing stupidity, why keep them?

What was her response? Also, what were the responses of the others whom you fired due to their support of Obozo?

If you were an employer, would you trust someone who voted for Obama? Personally, I wouldn’t.

Turn about is fair play. I know this has happened to non-zippy voters.

The liberals are also doing it here in Florida. They move down here from the East & start voting for the Democrats. No wonder we have seen voting problems in the south east from hanging chads & illegals voting.

DUH on me. Probably because I/we don’t recognize hussein as belonging in the position. I know the radical left wing extremists don’t want to hear that but the halfrican-American just ain’t working for me. My kind of pres would be hitting the range at Quantico to do some live fire stuff with the folks who use the facility. Not out on the golf course wearing shorts that make his spindly little legs look even worse. LOL! (I don’t do shorts anymore. I was told my legs are whiter than a picket fence!)

It’s liberating and I enjoyed all 3. I look forward to more and always explain exactly why they’re fired.
You made my whole day. I'd love to have seen the look on their faces when you told them.

“he picked the two employees in large part on the basis of their politics”

Is this about the O’Bummer administration and all government jobs, cabinet positions and Supreme Court nominees?
