Utah company fires 2 workers who supported Obama
MSN ^ | James Eng

Posted on 01/20/2013 8:28:51 AM PST by Libloather

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."

They usually look and smell funny. That's a shame.

“were not top performers” and “Obama supporters” is statistically a high probability direct correlation. Think of the lazy and the parasitic and you usually find they are Obama/Rat-voting types.

Good for the business for eliminating those who enable the destruction of the nation.

I fired my 16 year olds piano teacher last month because he showed up at my house with an Obama sticker on his car.

I informed a Barbecue place that I’ve been buying from for 3 years that my family would no longer buy because of the owners Obama vote.

I let go of a handyman that used to do lots of work for my clients (I’m a Realtor) that he was fired because of his Obama sticker.

It’s liberating and I enjoyed all 3. I look forward to more and always explain exactly why they’re fired.

Hmmm, this company is in Cedar City. These two employees who got fired are most likely California transplants. California Liberals F-up their own state, don't like the results, then move to another conservative state to wreak the same havoc.

Liberals are just plain dumb.

I am an evil smoker. Yikes! But the fun part is asking who people voted for if they are trying to bum a cig from me. If they say hussein, I simply tell them to go ask him for a smoke cause they ain’t getting one of mine. Some of the looks I get are priceless.

Speaking of stickers, we saw one last night that we’ve never seen before. It was the O name with the number 44 underneath. Anybody seen this one or know what it means?

Only problem is Obama supporters like welfare and will suck in the tit till they can no more. Then, they will collect SSD because of the “issues” they have from being fired for being stupid.

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.

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!

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!)

Similar issue in NV. Kali’s move across the state line to escape kali and then start trying to “improve” how things are done here creating (or attempting to) a kalifornia east. Not sure if it’s intentional or not. Maybe their feeble little minds are too far gone to know when they have it good. Or at least better. We moved here from FL with the intention of ensuring NV would become more conservative. Sadly there are too many clowns in LasVegas who easily out vote the rest of the state.

Molon labe.

...piano teacher said “my wife put that on my bumper”. I said, “your wife should know better”

...barbecue. “Who cares, we don’t want your hate in here” (They’re out of business by the way)

...handyman. “Wow. You’re kidding me! Your clients are always happy with my work”. I said, “I’ll find someone else that’ll make them happy”.

...haircutter. “That’s not fair”. I said, “your voting habits aren’t ‘fair’ to me, my family or my country”.

I know exactly what you're talking about. Before we moved back to Utah, I was stationed in the Florida Panhandle for 8 years. While we were a pretty strong Conservative area there, Liberals transplants were infecting other areas of that beautiful state.

Hate to be repetitive, but Liberals have to be the stupidest people on the face of the earth. They clearly don't like to live under the results that their politicians put in place, so they move, and do the exact same thing to other areas. Stupid is the only word i can think of.

I love it! Good for you! It's important that these knuckleheads clearly understand there are consequences in voting. So often, they vote on pure emotion. You helped to show these people that their support of socialist, progressive policies will cost them...literally!

Again, good for you! :-)

I think in government, for non-civil service jobs, it is common to fire/hire based on politics. Another way for him to think about it is he was just boycotting those workers for supporting Obama. We know the left has no problem with boycotting a company based on politics, now the company is doing the same thing to them.

My wife and I decided we no longer need the friendship of these people and have pretty well stopped associating with the few relatives who do so. This all came about when we were at a church function and had to endure a couple of “O” supporters. When we got home I told her I didn’t want to associate with them any more and to my surprised she agreed....normally my wife isn’t that political but she has changed to the point we both made lists of the people and relatives we would avoid because of “O”.....I must profess our lives have improved because of that decision....liberals for the most part are toxic for the spirit!!! We got a little grief from some in the family but a lot less than we thought....and several who agreed and did the same!!!
