I must say I belive everything has been covered here, so anything I say will just be a re-hash of others thoughts.. But I will quote something that

In all my years here I have never agree'ed with this member. However with this issue we are on the same page here.
Dr. Strangecraft also made many great points! Stars all around for those words of wisdom!

You are of course free to express yourself with really tasteless bumperstickers carrying profanity and just general ugliness aimed at all persons
different from yourself. And when it comes back to bite you, you can even blame your employer for having differing opinions, and not wanting you to
cost them business.

You have no recourse. An offensive bumper sticker is plenty of cause to terminate. Don't be misled by bad advice from ATS members. You might find an
less than honest attorney willing to stick you with their legal fees for a case that would never see the light of day; but why would you want to waste
Working in a day care with children, you honestly should have known better than mention anything about child molestors.
It was in bad taste, and costed you your job. While I am somewhat compassionate to you for the loss you face.
I would hope next time you take this as a learning exp. Move on and dont let your bad judgement cause you any more greif.
Its just a waste of time and money to try to sue..
Move on, and learn from this mistake..
I just know if I was a parent and came to pick up my kids and saw a bumper sticker like that.. I would be upset..
As prehaps I have no clue to what a GOP is.. When I do..
Yet most people dont know.. They might think you are in support of that idea.. When clearly I know you are fully aginst it.
Yet many dumbed down Americans will make up their own mind.
And bring a lynch mob, and burn the witch!!!
Ya know what Im saying dear?
And at the end of the day, its not your butt in the sling.. Its the people who put time and money into that daycare that would get the brunt of this
issue. They gave you the boot to protect their investment.. Their place of income.. IF they just let you come in daily with that sticker.. then it
reflects upon them.. And deeply I may add.
Your biz is only as strong as those you employ. Those those who work for you reflect upon what you do.
And honestly Im not shocked one bit by what happened to you..
I would be shocked if they let you keep your job with those kind of crass bumperstickers.. Personally I have never put a bumbersticker on anything I
drive!! To me its crass..
But do know, with this many replies to your post, we do care, and wish you the best
