    Man, that's a lot of boycottin' y'all are going to have to do. Good luck boycotting Verizon in SOMD, because all other carriers' coverage sucks down here.

    "Is Uncle Monello homeless?"

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    None of you...not one...are any better than those coddled kids on campus. You all are just the same. You want to ban speech you don't like. No difference. Of course none of you will see it that way. That is what happens when you can't think.

    You are all for "free speech". As long as everyone says things you agree with!

    If they worked for me' we already would have had a employee / owner meeting over this topic, it would be a short meeting. You men stand up and put that hand over your heart like the man that writes your checks tells you to do with a huge smile on your face, Or clean your locker out.
    But here's a tid-bit of information for you and the others that have never been outside of your moms basement much less employed,
    Employees don't have a Constitutional right to free speech or freedom of expression at work. The Constitution's right to free speech only applies when the government is trying to restrict it. Even then, it's not absolute. ... So employers are generally free to restrict employee speech, at least while they are at work.

    Rom was just posting the sponsors. I don't think he meant that people will boycott, but that some of those companies will most likely boycott football. You are complicating it all.

    I do have to say we have stopped buying Pepsi products for a while now, because of their insistence in getting involved in politics, and Target, too. No company should get involved in politics. Period.

    You just posted what my hub said to me when I read transporter's post to him. I'll be darned, we do have something in common, and think alike.

    It looks like he is peeing like a dog. Don't get me wrong, I love dogs, but the critter kind. Not the human kind.

    I am sorry, vrai, but you made me laugh. You banned me when I was mamatutu. For whatever reason, I will never know.

    Was it was because I went after bann. You, also, gave me an infraction as littlelady 2 years ago, and reason was 'don't start fight in here'. My point is that you can't have it both ways. Which leads us to the discussion on this thread. Apparently, some think they can have it both ways. I am just pointing out the hypocrisy of it all. I have, always, been honest. Just sayin'.

    Also, you need to be part of admin that keeps this forum in line, or give it up and be a commenter. You can't do both. David knows how to do that. Just sayin'

    Also, I have noticed the huge drop of responders to this forum, lately. Just looking out for you.
