we're going to get booted off of this forum for straying too far so I hope this posts. There sure are consequences to free speech but it's gone too far. I don't want people to lose their jobs over differences of political opinions or social issues...unless they are a DIRECT THREAT to someone. People don't need to agree and "tolerate" (for lack of a better word coming to mind) hateful speech but also cannot shut it down. For example, I personally don't need to tolerate something I oppose, but it would be up to me to leave or ignore it or whatever is appropriate in the given situation.
