Political Beliefs and Punishment
What I've read in these 2 threads today has saddened me deeply

Thread: Received my pink slip today

and

Thread: Kid Fired From Job for Supporting Obama


What is this country descending into when some of start saying it's ok to punish someone for their political beliefs

while you may agree or disagree with someones politics, this is a very slippery path to start down......what's next?

punishing people for:

believing in Christianity, Budda, Hindu, no religion at all...etc

or

firing people from jobs for having brown eyes(or blue)

how about low IQ, say below 110, you test below 110...here's your pink slip

I understand that some of you are angry at the state of things but to but to celebrate someone getting "punished" for expressing one of our freedoms is the WRONG road to take
