This debate continues to be a sad commentary on the part of the US population whose self-centered ignorance of what occurs outside of 'their' bubble and their view that all others should cater to their views or get out. Sad. So Sad.

Because if they continue to ignore it - or comply - they will eventually cease having that right to reject it. That right will be eliminated. Along with others.

I think said leader just wanted them fired.

In any corporation that I have been involved with, or my husband or children and grandchildren and we all have been involved with some big ones, these corporations expect you to fit their criteria of behavior and dress, if you disagree and don't than you are out of a job.

I believe our "leader" said Fire the S.O.B.s". And I have to say I agreed with him and I betcha so would the large majority of Villagers.
I have to be myself, everyone else is taken.
