Can "My Boss Stinks" on facebook get your fired?

So what can you say about your work on Facebook? Is “My Boss Stinks” OK? Even though he might see it are you protected by law? Some companies are still trying to figure out how far they can go in limiting what employees say about work online in the age of Twitter and Facebook. Confusion about what workers can or can't post has led to a surge of more than 100 complaints at the National Labor Relations Board _ most within the past year _ and created uncertainty for businesses about how far social media policies can go.  Michael Eastman, labor law policy director at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, says employers are struggling to figure out what the right policies are and what they should do when these cases arise. The most important thing so far is the labor board's acting general counsel, Lafe Solomon, says federal law permits employees to talk about their jobs and working conditions with co-workers without reprisal. Now what if I say? My Boss Stinks” on my Blog am I protected?  Just in case he’s really a great sweet guy.
