On Avoiding Controversy

When I'm considering a move that might be somewhat controversial or something I should maybe get approved, I'll just do it without asking. If it's on the fence, I figure no one's going to hold it against me in the long run. And so far I've been right. These aren't huge issues. Should I get permission before posting this on the company's Facebook or should I avoid saying idiotic things on my Twitter to damage possible future employment opportunities? These are the questions I wrestle with and so far nothing's come back to haunt me. My attitude comes from a guy I worked with ages ago. He taught ski lessons on a mountain and didn't bother getting approval from the resort, and he also took a bunch of tourists on an unsanctioned trip to Cuba. He was eventually arrested, but he got away with it for a long time. Plus he found another job after his misadventures. So, just avoid breaking the law and things should be okay.
