At the White House today, the President hosted a forum on how to keep them at home. He highlighted the " hopeful trend " of companies "choosing to invest in the one country with the most productive workers, the best universities, and the most creative and innovative entrepreneurs in the world." One of those companies is Master Lock , headquartered in Wisconsin. John Schmid is economics writer for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel .

One immediate question: is “hate speech” protected by the First Amendment?
