    Or better yet, what can I legally make my underlings do while at work?

    Can I make you point to Mecca every afternoon?

    Can I make them stand at attention when I walk by?

    Can I make them address me as "your highness" or "exalted one"?

    Can I require they genuflect every time they cross my POW/MIA banner?

    Can I make them have moments of silence for each aborted fetus from today?

    Can I make them draw pictures of each type of weapon used in a mass killing this decade?

    Can I have them stand there for two minutes while I preach about how great the country is?

    Can I hire a great singer to come sing my philosophy to them every morning and require each employee to take a submissive position?

    Really? I can hire people and indoctrinate them with whatever views I have?

    This is a dangerous slope.

    ............Help me think through this......

    I suppose if I run a reforestation company there will be tons of information sitting about stating trees are great and people need to expect to be exposed to it.

    So essentially if Jerry Jones wants to run a political action committee which also plays football he can put it in their contracts I suppose.

    Well that makes me want to go change our new hire pamphlet.

    In a way this is a terrible way of looking at things. For me there is a bit of a silver lining though.

    You don't have to take the job if you don't like the job description. They don't have to hire you if you don't like the job description.

    See how that works?

    If you put it in their job description and it is not illegal or a violation of their civil rights (illegal). Yes.

    Oh yeah, this is great news. This means the people who work for me can't tell me no!

    I think we'll set Youtube videos later on Tuskegee and the Trail of Tears playing later.
