Should you be able to flip someone off and not get fired?

Do you have the right to express yourself outside of work?  The reason I ask is because Juli Briskman was the unidentified cyclist who flipped off the Presidential motorcade and the picture was seen around the world.  Juli worked for a government contracting firm and when she told her bosses that it was her who was in the picture seen around the world, they fired her for violating a code of conduct policy.  The first amendment will keep you from being punished by the government but it doesn’t protect your paycheck.  Before your praise or chastise her, think about if it was your candidate or a hater of your candidate.  Does it change your way of thinking?  For me I think that she should have kept her job.  Would you like your boss telling you who or who you cannot flip off while you weren’t at work.  Me either.
