Thread: NRA Logo

  1. #11
    HAHA I like your responses. I have replaced it with the Second Amendment in FULL view and a "Don't Tread on Me" flag. I asked for writing, they don't want to give it. I said "then it shall go back up". I complained about the Obama pictures...."thats our president" I was told. This could get ugly very quickly which could result in me loosing my job. I am going to notify the NRA and other groups. I need my job so I have to be smart about what I say and do here. Just sucks I can't support a group but others can? I would love to run for political office.....i am 23 and honestly would HONOR the constitution....

    Exclamation Use a Gadsen Flag

    Don't Tread on Me! It has no gun reference and is a historic icon of the struggle for freedom.

    hahaha great idea. Man just reading about this situation pisses me off. I would probably post up every fact and story about guns saving lives I could find all over my office or cubicle or whatever. and rub them in any anti's face that decided to make a stink about your NRA logo, but thats me...I wouldnt be able to work in a place like that with out choking out one or two of the liberal idiots around me everyweek.

    it is not easy I must say. This isn't my first issue with this. I was talking to a friend here about shooting at the range (he shoots) and someone complained to HR and I was told to stop. I argued with my managerback and forth and decided it was best to just take it down. I see this type of stuff here in PRMA allll the time

    This whole situation in our country is totally getting out of hand. Why is ok for some to display and others like us we get told that we're not allowed. When is someone going to protest this act of BS. Not to mention why is it that all businesses do not want to get involved......they all act as though they are afraid. I'm sick of it. But I do understand that you need your job, I do as well.....I would call NRA like you said and inquire about it.

    I have to be careful where I work as well. I'd estimate 85 percent of my fellow workers are democrats and/or libs.

    Love the "Don't Tread on Me" idea. "Live Free or Die" is good too.

    BHO has go to go.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I'd say that is probably accurate for my place as well. However, we have a good sprinkling of ex-military in the staff as well. One supervisor is an Iraq war vet(got a Purple Heart too.) My direct sup emailed the team about a camping and shooting weekend he took. He's invited me to go next time around too.

    There are NRA magazines left in the "library" for people to grab reading material when they're bored. Nobody's thrown them out, and I even saw one left on the table...so I know they're being read.

    Back to the OP's situation: HR may simply be following the path of least resistance. The fact that they don't want to document it seems to point to the feeling that they think it's ridiculous too, but they want to be seen as "doing something."

    I've seen some good examples of fighting fire with fire. Get "offended." Complain. Give HR something to do to mess with anything you suddenly find offensive. Like one example mentioned here, perhaps they'll come to their senses and just tell people "GET REAL!"

    Otherwise, If you're in a state that lists political affiliation as a "protected class" then you can probably sue if you're fired. If not, then you need to consider whether you can take the firing/unemployment/finding a new job.

    I agree with the OP 100% - I like to put what I want as my background too, but unfortunately, if it is your work computer, they can dictate what goes on your background - they own the computer, and they can have policy that dictates what goes on it.

    That being said, you should look here for some wallpaper... :)

I think this is total BS however my only options are: suck it up and take it down....leave it up and face disciplinary actions....argue it with HR (mind you my company is pretty much an OBAMA nation in itself). Pretty much a pick and choose your battles type of thing. However, I do feel like this is something they can't make me do. Others have their clubs, hobbies, political stuff on theirs and I am the only one being asked to take it down. Just wanted to let you guys know how crazy this stuff gets here in PRMA. How is the NRA offensive? Not sure I get that. Next Obama picture I see I am complaining Big TIME! Haha thatís the little kid in me..

    I feel your pain but, to cheer you up a little I'm from New Jersey. You want to talk about an Obama nation it's sickening. I always where my NRA Don't tread on me hat around town and all eyes are on me. People with their Obama shirts and bumper stickers. I even where it in work which is a military base. I get looks but, nothing about taking it off yet. A few people around here have their Don't Tread on me stuff on but, not many. I am waiting for them to tell me. To be honest I have a family and a mortgage so I'll probably do what they tell me. The problem is there are people out there with our beliefs but, are afraid to express them. Believe me I know I have had people whisper in my ear that they like the hat and what it stands for. I am not prepared to lose my job. Itís a lost cause if itís me against a large defense contractor. So until people grow a pair and join the cause we are defenseless. So you did your part by putting up something you believe in now you need your NRA family to back you up. People donít want to cause waves. I am doing my part by wearing my hats and shirts and I even express my opinion. I am not afraid. I still show my backing of George Bush and future President Sarah Palin. I am in the big minority here and honestly will keep going till they tell me to stop. I will fight if I have a backing which here in the Peoples Republic of New Jersey I am on my own.
