    "It's an invasion of privacy for private employers to insist on looking at people's private Facebook pages as a condition of employment or consideration in an application process," said Catherine Crump, an American Civil Liberties Union attorney, on the ACLU's website. "People are entitled to their private lives."

    "This practice undermines the privacy expectations and the security of both the user and the user's friends. It also potentially exposes the employer who seeks this access to unanticipated legal liability."

    Republicans don't care if there is a "corporate" invasion of privacy. If the invasion of privacy is by their "corporate masters", then it's OK.

    Republicans are working to make their corporate masters the government. What happens when corporations become the government? Will Republicans suddenly defend government?

    deanie....is there anything you like about Republicans?

    I'm on the other side, but bet I can find something I like about President Obama....

    Let's try!

    OK...I'll start. I really like when he comes down off Air Force One, he jogs down with his little elbows bent....and looks like a Tyrannosaurus rex!

    Now, you....

    Asking for your Facebook password is like asking to come into your house and read your mail before deciding to hire you.

    Completely bogus. A no-brainer illegal practice, I should think.

    Republicans call me names, but they agree with what I say because I just repeat what their leaders have said.

    Education is for snobs.

    Evolution is a lie.

    Science is a faith.

    Climate change is a conspiracy.

    Corporations should pay zero taxes or less because they are the "job creators".

    Building American infrastructure is a waste of money.

    Scientists are lazy and sit on their degrees while raking in government money.

    See? It's easy. You try it.

    Can you name even one Republican who defended this? Are you aware that government agencies are among the corporations that are asking for passwords?

    I'm talking about corporations. Or are you defending this practice?
