Yeah we all have freedom of speech but common sense tells anyone that if you have a certain profession or position that just saying and posting any old ting can bite you well in a way you bit yourself!

I've been in the I.T. Field for over 25 years and have often been asked if I have a Facebook Page, Twitter, or Instagram in recent years and when I tell everyone "No" they just look at me like something is wrong with me. I tell them, "My personal life is just that, personal! If I wanted the world to know then it wouldn't be personal would it?" I have seen too many people lose jobs or not get hired for a new job for [email protected] things they post on Social Media.

In today's day and age I feel that it's safer to keep your opinions to yourself and just live your life as privately as possible. If I could live off the grid up in the mountains somewhere I would but I'm very anti-social when it comes to people.

Yup, social media the easiest way to lose your career. Justine Sacco is great example. I have a rule that I stick to: "Don't work with people you party with, and don't party with people that you work with". Keep your personal and professional life separate."

All of our rights are grossly misunderstood.

You have the right to say any damn thing you want. The only thing the first amendment guarantees is that the federal government cannot censor or prosecute you only for saying whatever you said. That's it. Your freedom of speech doesn't mean you can keep your job for showing the world how racist of a bastard you are, nor does it protect you if you show people how disgusting a person you are.

Just as the 2nd amendment doesn't grant me the ability to shoot my guns in crowded rooms with no fear of arrest, it doesn't grant you the ability to talk **** without being called out on it.
