    The idea that just because you have some managment or executive position, then you are qualified, let alone have the right, to determine peoples thoughts is objectionable in the extreme.

    Being a manger doesn't make you the parent, guardian or custodian over another ADULT human being. I really think a large part of the infantilisation of our culture, is that people are LITERALLY treated like children well past the age of 18, by things like this. And people accept it. Companies that engage in this are not worth supporting.

    Now, I can understand a "leave your politics at home" policy. I'm OK with that, because you should make sure people can work together, and you don't go to work to make political statement to a trapped audience. But that is not what this is in this case.

    Even though I am a Trump Supporter I too can understand a corporate policy that does not allow for MAGA attire.

    Might not sit well with other people who's views or beliefs are the same as yours, even though liberals around the water-cooler do not show the same restraint.

    Where I draw the line is not allowing Blue Lives Matter, or having
    a issue with the term All Lives Matter why is that considered offensive?

    The types people would take issue with the Phrase "All Lives Matter"
    They consider this to be equal to be an personal attack upon them and as it would seem to generate the false outrage as if to suggest that you're downplaying or proving a second seat for Black Lives. I would call that taking it to extremes. The Black Lives movement has stopped being about the downtrodden black folk a long time ago, as it has morphed into an excuse commit angry carnage that results in nothing but destruction and and
    even death. These people are psychotic and full of fake rage. We need a purge!

    As a matter of fact an Indiana women Doty Whitaker was shot and killed for saying the phrase All lives Matter.

    or take the case of 5 year old white child Cannon Hinnant who was just riding his bike as he was shot and killed at close range by a black man who was his family's next door neighbor.

    For those blacks who have done these things or for those who will do these
    acts of evil in the future their Black Lives shouldn't matter any more,
    for their lives are very much in forfeit.

    I agree with you on all this. People seriously need to leave politics at home while they're at work. Getting work done matters. Skin color don't matter.

    "All Lives Matter" is a phrase used to directly attempt to diminish "Black Lives Matter". All lives won't matter _until_ black lives matter.

    "Blue Lives Matter" is dumb. No one but smurfs are born blue. My neighbor is an
    exceptional K9 officer, and he also thinks the phrase is stupid. Apparently most of his fellow officers do as well.

    You've been watching the Fake News Media again. Cities are not burning, the craziness in Portland was limited to less than 2 city blocks.

    Back off from the Tucker Carlson a bit. The _vast_ majority of BLM protests and
    marches are 100% peaceful.


    I get that there's some hypocrisy here, and that the vast majority of police officers are also good people, but some professions just don't allow for that. You aren't going to fly an airline where 90% of the pilots land the plane, and 10% crash it. The pilots, like police officers, have to be perfect. Every time.

    All races have issues, but not all races burn Target stores to the ground and murder people to solve them.

    It sounds dumb to people who think it's smart to make their own problem into everyone's problem.

    Once again, read what you just said back to yourself, very slowly. Think about WWI and WWII, Women's suffrage, slavery, almost any war ever fought, etc.

    Every political movement ever was predicated on a small group of people making their voices heard, and convincing others to take up their cause.

    I would call that a serious mental psychosis from whichever mind that
    statement came from, because it IS a disconnection from reality.

    Saying, "All Lives Matter" is self explanatory as it literary means that
    "All Lives Do Matter." There is no other definition that should be
    entertained. Furthermore if one needs to destinate a classification of a race before the words "lives matter" then would be in fact Racist. Words Matter.

    "Blue Lives Matter" is dumb. No one but smurfs are born blue. My
    neighbor is an exceptional K9 officer, and he also thinks the phrase is stupid. Apparently most of his fellow officers do as well.

    Just because HE; thinks that the phrase "Blue Lives Matter" is dumb, doesn't mean it is. Much of what your talking about here is based on the individual. (meaning these are your thoughts as your indicating in the third person) the
    I would point out that he is NOT the "only one" for such a statement is
    defined for - after all the statement does mean that he too of course is included within the statement nevertheless, wither he likes it or not and so are his buddies, to spite what you have led us here to believe concerning the genuineness of his feelings about the phase, Blue Lives Matter.
    It's much bigger then one man or one woman, putting it all on line.

    The types people would take issue with the Phrase "All Lives
    Matter" They consider this to be equal to be an personal attack

    Well Thanks, for comparing what I said to Tucker Carlson, I'm honored.
    I know that was not your intention, but thanks nevertheless.

    However, I never said a word about burning, did I?

    (Go Ahead do scroll up and check.)

    See nothing about burning........

    what I did say is in-fact accurate about the false outrage and the excuse to commit angry carnage that results in destruction and even death.

    I get that there's some hypocrisy here, and that the vast majority of police officers are also good people, but some professions just don't allow for that. You aren't going to fly an airline where 90% of the
    pilots land the plane, and 10% crash it. The pilots, like police
    officers, have to be perfect. Every time.

    Keep in mind there was and even now there are cities that are currently under siege to some degree of attack. These events are not peaceful either.
    All of it under some division of Black Lives Matter or Antifa.

    I am referencing the Chicago carnage where it was an factual that 90% of the people were committing violence with the throwing of rocks, bricks, frozen water bottles, using lasers to blind cops and lot forget about the shooting
    off fireworks in the direction of cops. These actions were far from peaceful demonstrations. The cities that continue to see acts of violence are also far from peaceful.
