Police state: County censors government employee who dares criticize Obamacare
Daily Caller ^ | 12/08/13 | Eric Owens

Posted on 12/08/2013 4:54:54 AM PST by Libloather

A California county has banned a veteran employee from criticizing the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act because a coworker who overheard the criticism was offended.

The employee is Norina Mooney, who has logged some 20 years of work experience with Santa Clara County, the epicenter of Silicon Valley.

According to Mooney’s attorneys with the Pacific Justice Institute, she made some water-cooler talk with a fellow employee about the high number people who have had their insurance policies canceled under Obamacare.

KEYWORDS: california; employee; government; obamacare
Mooney’s attorneys have sent a letter to Santa Clara County officials demanding answers and seeking an affirmation of public employees’ rights to comment on matters of public concern. Several weeks have passed with no response.

Sue the heck out of 'em.

Now we can’t talk about the King’s decrees? The constantly offended must be a new protected class, like bald eagles or something, first I had heard of this group. They are probably an offshoot of the snitch class recently organized by the Chief Organizer himself. The snitch class is a minor arm of the powerful and dreaded NSA, which also controls the sleath group the IRS. Hard to keep up with aint it.

In California, pretty soon they will ban the “Emperor’s New Clothes” parable out of respect for Obama.

Well not quite like bald eagles. Obama gives bald eagle killing permits to wind farms. Try getting a permit like that for the perpetually offended.

Especially Santa Clara county. It’s about as blue there as San Francisco. San Benito county is only marginally better as far as I can see so far.

The union is only there to collect dues. As far as protection goes, they’re off getting tacos.

No surprise if this is the same Norina Mooney from the local Silicon Valley Tea Party Patriots group.

I’m going out today and buy “The Emperor Has No Clothes” and glue a picture of obama’s face over the Emperor’s face on every page. Then tomorrow I’m placing it on my desk at work.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the president... is morally treasonable to the American public.

Better yet, buy it, do it, then put it back on the shelf at the bookstore.

You need to sneak it back into a store and put it a the shelf for someone to buy.

After it was elected, I took a stack of the small sticky pads, wrote “Obama is a socialist”, on them and walked around the book section in certain stores, flipped thru the pages of any Obama worship book and slapped one of the sticky notes in between the pages before I put it back on the shelf and moved on.

You vill not criticize Dear Leader or any of his policies. The Constitution is outdated and no longer necessary.

You do not need Free Speech, or any of the other Rights.

Dear Leader and The Party vill tell you what to think and when to think it.

When I was in the army I used to go into the PX and every obama book of magazine I saw, I would turn it around so the back cover was showing. Any obama “worship” knick knack type items would be placed on the bottom shelf.

A friend played a joke on me and had an obama campaign stick sent to me. I placed it in a urinal at the hospital.
