The St.Louis Science Center decided to fire me today for my affiliation with liberal groups online from OccupySTL.Org to even the non liberal website

Apparently cause I have a bumper sticker on my car supporting liberals they decided to do some 'investigating' of me and went through my facebook profile, which is set to private might I add. Printed out pictures of me and showed me the pictures that are on private which I asked 'How were you able to obtain private pictures of me' only for my former boss to tell me its private information.

For those unaware about the St.Louis Science Center, they were being reported by the post dispatch for using tax payer dollars to give bonuses to top level executives. Due to me refusing to as they state it 'Defend the Science Center' against bloggers on websites that I am part of that I was causing a hostile work environment.

And as of an hour ago I was told that I would not be returning to work. I have never had this happen to me before, being fired over my affiliation with liberal groups that are part of my personal life.

What do I do now?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
