Stupid is you for believing she has a case. She has not been discriminated against in the protected sense. Discrimination in that her employer didn't like her destructive political choice for president? Yes, but that is not illegal.
I presume (maybe incorrectly) that she is an at will employee, which means she can be fired for any reason or no reason so long as it is not one for which there is lawful protection. Those protections are race, religion, sex, color, national origin, family status, disability, veterans and genetics. Stupid choices is not on the list, so the business in on firm ground here.
A 'disagree" judging is not a case. Whoever did it, make your case for why this is a protected person under current discrimination laws. You won't, because it isn't.

So now Canadians get to vote in U.S. elections? No wonder we're so screwed up.
No, that's how I know none of my staff voted for Mitt Romney.

With regard to legality, let's see what the court says. With regard to justice, we already have the answer.

Hell, I got fired for making a bit of fun of a Mormon once. I was pretty straight forward I didn't like her.

That would be: have taken.

Tallyho, I did not vote. Wasn't anyone to vote for. Why is that we've only two humans to pick from. Either or, the one that wins becomes the House's puppet.

Both were uneven. O'bam needed to have done more in the last 4 years. But he did not. I truly had such high hopes for him from the start. Was all about it.

Then out of left field, much to my chagrin, he becomes an Old Tom.
Crushing...really.

The other idiot(R.) and bowls of hell he wanted for a vise idiot, would have been a disaster on so many levels is hard to fathom.

We have what we have. Have faith in you government. They work for you!

By the way....did you catch this?:

Also, Tallyho, your having been in a bit of a corner in government should know there has always been free schooling in America. This isn't new.

Think deep, for to me, you are pulling at straws with your statement. Free education?~soft laughs~ Come on now.

taken applies to the assumption he did go to school , not knowing calls for should have took .. but thanks any how

and should did more not done , because he already had done it past, becomes did ... not a big deal but ....

your right to vote is your right to exercise as you see fit

If you think "should have took advantage" is English, you need the free education.

Okay...I checked before posting. Always thought when using 'have' one should add 'en to the word have is used for.

I put did, and changed it. Thank you, and understood. Is always good to try and master this here English. At first I was bullheaded. Now am just an ass. But a cute one.~coughs~ on the age'y side, that is.

I would like very much to vote. But, alas, there isn't anyone to vote for.
