    examples of people being terminated for being Obama supporters? We have seen several companies cut jobs because of the President's re-election, but I haven't read anything that the specific terminations were targeted at Obama supporters. In addition, no employer knows how you actually voted, but campaign contributions and social sites can certainly show what candidates you support.

      I strongly disagree with this. We should not lower ourselves to their level. Let them make fools of themselves, and call their congress critters.

      on Facebook, so it must true and be a nationwide epidemic! If you voted for Obama and have not been fired yet, you're an anomaly.

      I could find the damn page again I would have linked to it. If somebody finds it again, please include the URl so I could include it in an update.

      Maybe it was some people just talking tough and then deleting the page when they belatedly realized it was a bad idea.

      When the page was up somebody was pitching a book on how to ferret out Obama supporters.

        about it in public.  The revenge firings and layoffs will be covert.  I'll be watching the next couple of "new unemployment claims" reports for sure.

      which party you support assuming your state has a closed primary (and you aren't one of those few who registered Rethug just to screw with their primaries, of course) and that is a public record.  So yes, they can easily check if you are registered as a Democrat or Rethug.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
