    Imagine a certain Lodge poster claiming that the WTC was brought down by our own government. Then imagine there were 15,000 other Lodge posters.

    Wouldn't it be ironic if someone were to use that article to publicly shame Biddle?

    Apparently I needed to read further.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Yeah Sacco was not a public figure.

    Are pio and BD? That's who Sherb brought up as examples of folks who can say whatever they want on social media without consequence. Sacco thought so too.

    (are we talking past each other?).

    Regardless, once you print something publicly (and unless you set it up, tweets are public)... it's fair game for the animals to stomp on. The problem nowadays is how quickly the stomping ramps up and how easy it is to anomalously go after people
  • The mind boggles.

    Let's not forget that social media is unbiquitous.

    I actually think it was an attempt at humor. I'll be it mean spirited humor and yes drunk probably has something to do with this also. But do we really have to be representatives of our company's values at all times? Can we not just be jerks in our private lives as long as we comport ourselves properly in our work environments?

    I agree. One of the reasons I refuse to be facebook friends with anyone I work with.

    You ever see how many times the "People of Walmart" has circulated around FB? Always surprised that someone somewhere didn't get their undies in a bundle over that one.

    I don't tweet (****?) either. I don't need to be followed or follow anyone.

    Pay a Jewish cowboy to beat them up?

    I was agreeing with you.

    My stance is impressive.
