Since when DU is "inappropriate" , tales from an Air Force Base.
Advertisements [?]
I am going to open myself up here a little. I work at McChord AFB, though not as government employee or a member of the military. As when I am on my lunch break, and off the clock, I go to DU to read the forums as well as participating in them. My supervisor noticed that I was reading some posts and has deemed them to be "inappropriate" (I don't know why, there wasn't bad language on them), and ready to read me the riot act over use of the computer, it is not like I was downloading dirty pictures, which I don't do. Anyway the super is not happy in my taste of politics, does not like the fact I tune into Thom Hartman, in the mornings(sorry but I am not into sickly sweet, quasi-fascist Christian radio station, Ms. supervisor if you are reading this:hi: ) I turn off net when I do my work, and usually don't go back on until I get home. I work on a base where Fox News is de jour, and a branch of service, frankly has a problem with Fundie Christians, like at the AF Academy. I feel that there will be a confrontation, though I will do it with civil respect as I was taught from youth. Last I checked there is freedom of speech, Democratic Underground and the Democratic Party still have the right to function, though who knows with this group in the White House and I pray for the change to return this country back to normalcy and greatness begins in November. Thank You for my turn to stand on the soap box.:patriot:
