Privacy, on the internet? Really!

Ya gotta love the mind set, 'I was just exercising freedom of speech on my facebook page and shouldn't have been fired. It's my private page!'

How in the world do they not realize that there is nothing private about the internet? Why in heavens name do they believe that they can say whatever they want without the possible repercussions that may arise from their statements? Their employer does not have to support a racist or bigoted viewpoint of an employee by keeping them on the payroll if it will bring their business under a microscope in a way that could cause them to lose business or label them as questionable and unfair concerning the service they may provide.

Quite simply put, there is no expectation of privacy on the internet. Once something is put out there, it is there for the world to see. If you make racist comments and share racist memes on social media, you will be seen as a racist who does not care that the world will see them as a bigot.

Hanoi Jane

Once again we are seeing the face of Jane Fonda and the hate that is directed toward her because of her stance concerning Viet Nam and her trip to Hanoi. She has been called a traitor yet found to have broken no laws with respect to treason nor sedition. I'll not say she was right to go nor will I defend her. What I will point out is that almost all od the people who choose to be so vocal about her are the same people who applaud Senator Mitch McConnells refusal to give a nom,inee a rightful hearing to fill the vacancy of the Supreme Court. They are the same people who cheered on President Elect Donald Trump while he called for second amendment solutions if he were to lose the election. These are the same people who continually support a republican led congress in their attempt to make a failure of the Obama administration.

We are a nation that has chosen to condemn Jane Fonda never to be forgiven while applauding and supporting people who have vowed to make this country fail for the purpose of obtaining political power rather than work for the best interests of the people. There's something wrong with the way 'we the people' allow the body politic rape the country while condemning an individual.
