    An Internet conglomerate said Saturday that it had “parted ways” with one of its public relations executives after a post from her Twitter account said: “Going to Africa. Hope I don’t get AIDS. Just kidding. I’m white!”

    The message came from the account of Justine Sacco, the communications director for New York online media conglomerate InterActiveCorp, who was on an international flight to Africa on Friday.

    IAC said in a statement Saturday: “The offensive comment does not reflect the views and values of IAC. We take this issue very seriously, and we have parted ways with the employee in question.”

    Damn! Another left-leaning corporation that refuses to allow its employees to express their Constitutional rights to be hateful bigots. Even if it's in violation of company policy and harms the company image.

    What next? Will they be punishing TV stars for making bigoted statements that reflect negatively on the company, and violate their contract? Oh, wait, they already have. icon_confused.gif

    I wonder if there would be all this outrage if the comments made were against George W. Bush or supposed members of the tea party. All of a sudden, it would be encouraged and laughed at by the left. Such silliness, all this selective, phony outrage.

    You can wonder all the hypotheticals you like, but that's not an actual example, nor a valid argument.

    Would you be? No, of course not. But if comments against President Obama similar to what's been said about Bush or Palin, I would be outraged. Honesty, and the absence of it on your part, that is the difference between us.

    I've heard more vitriolic comments about Obama than any previous president.

    That's almost funny. If you paid attention to a tiny fraction of the mainstream media during the Reagan and both Bush years, or when Gingrich was Speaker of the House, any honest person not full of hate and anger would be appalled. Even after they left office. Those men are hated and despised to no end because of a constant, relentless smear campaign, it's what the left does best, thanks to Saul Alinsky.
    On the contrary, most of the right leaning politicians and media are terrified of saying anything unsupportive of Obama, out of fear of being labeled racist. The few times really low things have been said, I myself spoke against it on here because I respect the man and the office he holds. Others have, also. There is more honesty on the right, the left will say or do anything to achieve it's ends.

    The birthers should be sued for libel. They use racism and xenophobia as part of their everyday rhetoric.

    Yeah, I know that lobbyists are working both sides if the aisle, and I'm all for a revolution... But it's the actual republican constituents who scream "drill, baby, drill" like there's no tomorrow. Democrats are being thrown under the bus by corrupt politics that work against a liberal ideology; republicans bought seats on the bus.

    Everyone is involved. Each and every one of us is dependent on oil, coal, plastics, etc. And it is unsustainable. Look at the consequences to coral. It's not a matter of if the world's coral reefs will die, it's when:

    http://mobile.nytimes.com/2012/07/14/opinion/a-world-without-coral-reefs.html?channel=wow2&q=coral&pagewanted=all

    Pollution is killing the coral, the bees, everything. Each year the damage piles up. The land, water and atmosphere are turning into garbage. ADHD, autism, cancer, depression, violence, obesity, Katrina, Sandy, the melting ice caps, acid rain are just the beginning...

    "Drill, baby, drill" is a death chant.
