4. The thinking that employers essentially "own" their employees

needs to be rejected, especially in this situation. I don't like the idea that employers can have access to the social media accounts of their employees and can discipline and/or terminate them for off-duty pictures/behaviors/expression of political beliefs. I don't agree with the idea that all employers can make random drug testing a condition of employment unless it appears to be a safety issue with the type of job or is believed to be adversely affecting job performance. I definitely don't agree with what the NFL is doing here either. Taking a knee as a form of protest during the National Anthem is not disrupting anybody or anything and if some fans want to get their shorts up in a bunch over it, that's their problem.
