    But, as we've said before, free speech doesn't mean you get to keep your job.  Not suffering repercussions for speech would be nice in this case, but that's not the same thing as free speech.  Ask the former head of Mozilla (good riddance by the way).

      has to do with "free speech".

      Government salaries are public knowledge, and there is no bar to discussing them. What we have here is an unfair contract term that is used solely to depress wages.

      I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
      but I fear we will remain Democrats.

        That's why I mentioned it.

      you are right about that.  It's a bit like Rush Limbaugh's free speech:  he can say any idiot thing he likes (that's free speech), but he suffers economic consequences (yeah, boycott of his advertisers!).  

      I'd like to know more about what happened to this bill in the senate?  Who torpedoed it?

      It's the Supreme Court, stupid!
