B: There is no civil ordinance stating that your bumper sticker is illegal.
terminated because of the offensive nature of your bumper sticker - you have a case. It IS that simple. Offensiveness is not a crime.
Can you really be fired for hitting the Shalimar too hard, or whispering about your boss' comb-over?
The answer: Absolutely - in fact, you can be canned for doing less than that. Generally speaking, “An employer can fire someone for a good reason, a bad reason, or no reason at all," says Kevin Zwetsch, an attorney specializing in employment law.
While this isn't breaking news - so-called “employment at will" has long been the rule in the United States - it inevitably comes as a big surprise to many workers, who tend to believe some kind of workplace bill of rights must apply in such situations.
Say that your boss fires you, so that he can hire his brother instead. Your firing has nothing to do with your age, a disability, or your race, religion, or sex. Firing you is not against the law www.aarp.org...
Your bumper sticker is your own business, what other people think of it is entirely your own business.

Why is it okay for members to personally insult the OP? Ten pages of it. The longer the thread gets the more insulting it has become. Do members feel safety in numbers? Where are the MODs? I think HBT is not the only one revealing her manners or social inclinations in this thread.
Seeing that in the parking lot would set off my spidey sence and I would have a chat with the director.

That is an example of a very ignorant person, getting someone in trouble who actaully cares about the nation and politics. I think there was no reason to fire you, but fair reason to have the sticker removed.
although it is a prime example of how stupid some people are.

Think the parents pulling into the parking lot would have felt pretty good knowing their little crotch fruit was about to be placed in the care of someone who wants an embryo to grow up and be gay?
