Dude, you talk about wanting to bang your cousins teenage friends, what kind of employee are you?

Teachers are not allowed to have a sex life? Their teachers, not nuns. What they do in their bedroom is non of my(or my kids) business. Bet you would have a different view if the teacher was a man. Aren't atheletes role models too? How about firemen or a cop? Should all of those peeps be fired if they make a porno?

You know, for someone who is supposedly for smaller govt, you sure seem to think that govt has every right to go into peoples bedrooms and dictate what is allowable.
I'm not saying I agree with everything edog wrote, but the difference that I see in the Lindsey Stone situation is that she was on a business trip with her company LIFE - Living Independently Forever. It is a company that helps adults with mental disabilities live as independently as possible. In breaking the rules as the site, she was breaking the code of conduct for her company.

If a teacher had sex with someone during the schoolday, I would expect repercussions. Cops and firefighters are monitored very closely now about what they do off the clock, online, who they associate with because it is recognized that their off duty activities can affect their ability to do their jobs effectively.

There are lots of legal things that you can do, but not on your employer's clock/dime.

BTW, Lindsey Stone has now been fired.

I think at this point, the company had to fire her, because she was an embarrassment and a liability. I think it's odd that considering what her job was, she could be so blatantly disrespectful like that.

I hope this was a huge learning experience for her.

Absolutely. Happens all the time.

I don't think I ever made that remark, but who I want to bang has no bearing on what kind of employee I am.

I never made that claim so will not defend it.

I wouldn't want John Holmes or Ron Jeremy teaching my children either.

Ask Michael Vick. And many jurisdictions don't permit cops to be bouncers at strip clubs.

Agreed. If you're a teacher, especially, you realize your public conduct does have consequences. If you don't realize that, you're in the wrong business.

Unfortunately, people like that like to blame others for their problems, in a lot of instances.

Kind of ironic that someone who works for a company called "LIFE" would scream at people for being dead.

Sometimes when you work closely with people of disability you also encounter ones who milk the system 2hich can lead to frustartion.

She is a low level NGO worker who is out of a job. She paid her price. On to the next one.

If you read her excuses, she wasn't thinking about where she was, but saw the sign and was poking fun at it - not the soldiers. I'm sure many people would have been tempted to do the same, but they took the sign in context and made their decisions accordingly.

Not so ironic when you consider that death is the exact opposite of life! Life and death have been at odds, practically since the beginning of time. It's really quite a rivalry.

What are you babbling about? Did you even bother to read the post I replied to? Mutt was the one who brought the bedroom into the conversation.

Reading comprehension fail!

How can you say that who YOU want to bang has no bearing on what kind of employee you are, but for the teacher it does? You're talking out of both sides of your mouth (again)

You have mentioned more than once your attraction to younger women. But deny it if you like.

I did not say a cop as a bouncer, stay on track and quit deflecting.

Every time you rile against gay marriage, you are inviting govt into peoples bedrooms. If you cant see that your dumber that you pretend to be.

I think that particular post was about the teacher who was fired because she'd done a porn film.
Personally, unless she had a viewing for the class, or was telling them about it, they shouldn't have been able to fire her.

I agree. Who found out about the porn? Probably a fellow teacher or a parent who watched it.

I think it was the principal who saw it online.

I fully support the decision to terminate her.

Parents would be outraged if she was allowed to keep her job. She works for the community, she's a role model for our youngest citizens, she should not be filmed getting dp'd with two others in her mouth (I'm making that up, I really don't know what the porno involved nor care). America should not give up her morals in the name of tolerance. Patraeus resigned, Clinton was impeached, all for having an affair. God bless America!

Is there more to the Lindsey Stone story that I don't know? Why do people keep bringing up sex? I thought that trash just had a picture of her yelling and flipping off a sign at Arlington National Cemetery.
