Liberalism 101 Terrorism vs Workplace Violence

This blog is worth reading.

EXCERPT: The tongue is the tail of the heart. The heart is known by how the tongue wags. … Remember what G.K. Chesterton said? That bigotry is “an incapacity to conceive seriously the alternative to a proposition.”

    Funny! #HasJustineLandedYet trended while Justine Sacco was flying to Africa. My personal fave: “Sometimes you land with more baggage than you took off with. #HasJustineLandedYet”

      Interesting comments on that page about the “lynching” of this woman for a dumb tweet. I happen to agree with the “people shouldn’t get fired for saying dumb stuff in social media” but they should definitely get a serious talking to by their bosses and stop doing it.

      My kids have told me the military gives them lectures about their responsibilities as members of the Armed Forces for behaving with dignity, courtesy and above all observing OPSEC (Operational Security).

      This Sacco woman not only had a history of offensive tweeting, but is a specialist in social media and PR. That takes her out of the “dumb tweeter” class and puts her into the “needs to get a serious warning from her bosses” class. For all I know, she’d had a warning already.

      Some people (e.g., Anthony Weiner) just don’t learn. If they keep embarrassing their employers, they need to get canned. That being said, I still find A&E’s actions over the top. They could’ve done the same thing that on DVDs with commentaries, which is “The opinions expressed do not represent blah blah.”
