Facebook photo of Plymouth (MA) woman at Tomb Of The Unknowns sparks outrage. “Lindsey Stone was visiting the Tomb of the Unknowns last month on a business trip when she posed for a picture next to a sign that reads ‘silence and respect.’ In the photo, Stone is pretending to yell and she’s showing her middle finger.” Well, one consolation: no matter how long she lives, it will be almost impossible for her to do something more stupid and disgusting than this.

Wtf is wrong with that chick? that’s not even … I AM SPEECHLESS.

I’m a combat veteran and I support her right to do something so stupid. But I also support the right of anyone to slap her upside the head and call her a stupid bitch.

And that is my complaint. To often, speech such as this is considered “protected” by the 1st ammendment, but when the comment is not PC, suddently you are the most evil and dispicable speck of wasted of life in the universe.

Or fire her.

Happy Thanksgiving! She was fired!!

I am torn about this, really. It was disrespectful, but she is young, and I honestly believe that she did it to be funny. Not that it IS funny, but I could see how someone might think it was ironic. On the other hand, she is old enough to know that actions have consequences, and posting it on Facebook was beyond stupid.

I am proud of LIFE for taking this seriously and for doing the right thing. Maybe firing was harsh, but they sent a firm and solid message. I applaud them for that.

Karmaa, you are a better person than I, as I do NOT believe firing was harsh in the least bit.
I might think a bit differently, but for the fact she was on company time, using company equipment.
Had she done it on her OWN time, then she would just be stupid. Still disrespectful, but just stupid.

Karmaa

OK. I forgot THAT part. That she was at work, and on company time. I retract my previous parts about firing “maybe too harsh”. But I still want to believe that her motivation was just misguided humor and a severe lack of decorum!

I personally have no problems with her getting fired. She works with the very people who she was demeaning. This is unrecoverable. Her unintentional consumption of human saliva in just a year will rival Hanoi Jane’s — think about this. This was the ultimate disrespect, that goes even beyond HJ’s treason.

What people put up on FB can follow you into work — and she won’t be the only schlub from this generation of idiots that finds out that the first thing that new employers do when they hire someone is to have a quick look at their FB profile, see if they aren’t maybe just bullshitting the interviewer. I can’t imagine the words out of any vet’s mouth when they see what the new hire got up to in her spare time.

She’s pretty much limited her career prospects to getting knocked up and going on the dole. (That, and becoming a donk shill at M(anure)S(preader) NBC.

Yeah. hopefully she is smart enough to realize that she is stupid. Once she gets to that point, maybe she will realize that being a libtard is even stupider than posting online pics that disrespect 1/10 of the population, and piss off most of the rest.

DefHarryMelon

That is the real pointy object in the eye, the posting of a photo of such disagreeable nature. If she’s dumb enough to pose like that, fine. But to publicize one’s own idiocy by choice is a matter of significant illogical behavior exceeding practically any other. A person ought to recognize when they’re playing roulette, it is best to avoid the Russian kind.

It may have been done in jest, but that doesn’t excuse the fact that she doesn’t understand when and where to do things in jest. Show some respect, or leave the premises.

Everyone no matter mental or physical disability can serve in a capacity to help others or defend the country for a two year service that would open up peoples minds to how great a country the United States is. Then you would not have this type mentality running rampant among the left.

All Americans should have to serve 2 paid years in some capacity to get a sense of nationalism [this chick don’t got] and an outlet as being part of something positive.

Not hardly, you made no point. Serving our country is a calling unto itself and does not represent nor sponsor any kind of political agenda. All the other organizations you mentioned either represent a specific cause or political agenda and should not be mentioned in the same sentence.

Just as an aside, I’ve never, ever done this here but, KNOCK IT OFF!

In my very freaking humble opinion, you all raised valid issues in the beginning and the points were taken out of context, by both sides, for whatever reason. Take a deep breath.

Just looking from the outside in, seems to me everybody is basically on the same page. Keep up the pissin match kids, looks from here you’re trying to see who can prove Alinsky & Ayers right; divide and conquer.

May be wrong and way out of line but… oh nevermind, got strawberry\rhubarb pies to make, Thanksgiving is the only time G-ma EVER says I can do something better than her.

drb

‘specially with vanilla ice cream on top…just sayin’

GhostntheMachine
Member

Only the pies, my turkey is pretty sucky I hear. Do 4, 1 for G-ma and 3 for the ‘gathering’ once a year. And the yeast I mentioned was for my magic pizza bread.

(if ub interested, it’s kinda funny, I have this huge plastic thing w/ concentric circles on it that dominates my table the day before Thanksgiving. Covered with flour and an honest to goodness rolling pin, we make ‘real’ pie crusts. Not frozen.)

The reason it’s funny is G-ma forgets she’s the one who gave it to me and taught me how to cook. Loves my pie, and she’s an old school 96. Why I only do it once a year.

Now the pizza bread is different (not that stale frozen half loaf of garlic bread w/ sauce and a pepperoni…) not exact but think homemade dough, all your pizza favs whatever they may be spread out and then this raw crust rolled up and baked. Then cut in slices off the roll like sausage. OK, I quit, couldn’t help it.

poppajoe49
Member

I hate to admit it, but I don’t have the time to make my own pizza dough. I use a frozen dough that I get in Wal Mart that is made in NJ. It is a very good dough.

GhostntheMachine
Member

Gotcha, but this is Thanksgiving, kinda my little family (pie) tradition. And the pizza bread is awesome, think all that stuff rolled up in a loaf… and baked in a loaf pan. And sliced about a half inch thick when done, looks like pizza cinnamon rolls. Can’t wait.

That’s a damned shame Flash. I remember quite a few unpleasant holidays also, but never let it get to me that bad. However, my thrill oer them has declined over the last few years, but I think it has more to do with my unpleasant home situation.

I’m struggling along with a modified Char-Broil smoker I bought earlier this year.

http://www.gettington.com/product/charbroil-american-gourmet-offset-charcoal-smoker/pd225.uts?CTid=1131&CTKey=GTNPLA&ci_src=17588969&ci_sku=4PD2250000010

It’s not built real heavy, and had to be modified to really hold the smoke and heat in, but I’m doing some good stuff with it. I’ll probably have to replace it in five years or so, but hopefully I’ll be in a position to buy something built of thicker steel.

Robert, with the fact of not having refrigerator, and just the two of us here, we decided to forego the entire holiday, since Kat likes to cook up a bunch of related goodies, and holidays are pretty much meaningless to me anyway. I grew up in a family where holidays were torture for me, and I never got over it.

poppajoe49

drb, I got the Masterbilt electric smoker for Christmas last year. It has a digital thermostat, built in meat thermometer, and digital timer. I looooove it!

i don’t understand. If you smoke your turkey properly it’s preserved, hence no need for a fridge.

GhostntheMachine

Just caught that on the run, but Oh man, I salivate over which smoker to put at the top of my wish list.

Forget the tool sale ads (I do those religiously), prolly forget Playboy too, but a good smoker, oh my, I want one bad.

I make a mean smoked turkey, but not this year, with no refrigerator until our new one is delivered next Wednesday.

RobertW

thanks for your service.

valid point though, there are people mentally incapable of serving, for any number of reasons.
mandatory 2 year service rankles for the simple reason that it’s mandatory. I think, and I’ve said it before in these threads, that the idea proposed in Starship Troopers, that only veterans of the military can vote, is a better solution.
GITM: mmmmm strawberry/rhubarb.

poppajoe49
Member

There are 2 major problems with your idea,
1 nobody should be required to do any of this,
2 many of those organizations you mentioned would do nothing to prevent the libtard mentality we are trying to avoid, in fact they foster it.

I'm With STUPID

Speaking as a Former Marine and Soldier and Defense Contractor serving a decade overseas, I know what serving is. I know what love for God, Country, Corps is and have shed blood myself in defense of the United States. Having said that:

It is said often and by many,” all Americans should have to serve 2 years in the military.” Problem there is that people are not all fit to serve in the Armed Forces. People need other places that will accept persons of disabilities and conscious objectors as well as persons with lower intelligence or mental inefficiencies.

The leftists have to have somewhere to serve. Why not provide allow the American Muslims the option to serve the IRCF, at least they would be doing something. Many people sit around and bitch but never really put an honest thought into how in a diverse country a plan can really work. This is why the Republicans and myself lost the Presidential Election.

I am tired of seeing people bitch about valid ideas without putting forth any real solutions. I am very tired of a society of individuals that are a bunch of followers thinking the world revolves around one person.

poppajoe49
Member

IWS, I respect you and your service. I gave you a TU for that reason.
I am also a veteran, and understand your desire to see more patriotic attitudes from people.
We’ll just have to agree to disagree on your points about mandatory service.

Sidekick

Yep. I feel the same way. Many of us on this board served and we did so because in one way or the other we were called to do so.

flashingscotsman

I think a volunteer armed forces is a better armed forces. Besides, we don’t need another welfare program to keep slackers “employed” for two years out of their lives.

sa_rose
Member

I understand what you are saying, but there was some really good things done with the draft. More people had to go, so there was less of the rotating assignments far beyond the 2 year enlistment. That became voluntary. It forced mama’s boys to cut the apron strings and start thinking for themselves, it made it abundantly clear why freedom is never free and overall, more folks showed respect because most families had some skin in the game: Father, Brother, Son, nephew, cousin. Everyone knew someone personally who had served. For the classless, they learned manners, and respect for elders and leaders. They learned how to dress like a human being, and they learned SOME kind of skill. Yeah, I can see some real positives for everyone to serve 2 years as payment to live here.

RobertW
Member

then let them serve in govt. they could NOT be worse than what’s in there now, AND they’d gain practical knowledge of what it takes to keep a country afloat while being protected who are called to protect. AND keep these incompetents as well as the ignorant OUT of the Armed Forces where they’ll have to be forced with visiting death first hand, upon the enemy. I think this would also reduce the number of career pols, which is never a good thing, humans being what they are.

Got these off the NGO LIST OF RELIEF ORGANIZATIONS list so I just may know a little more about it than you do. I used that list so whiners couldn’t say that all people are not able to serve when in fact all people can serve in some manner. I don’t like the UN either but this is the list and the US is paying for it so it may as well get used!

They both need to be in the unemployment numbers that are moving up after the election of barry again.

drb

RobertW

it’s unfortunate, but likely, that neither will be fired for this. She’s exercising her First Amendment Right to Freedom of Expression, her obscene gesture notwithstanding, and since barry, and hillary got away with it (in that neither was charged, let alone lambasted for it) the ACLU will surely get her off scott-free.
It’s interesting to me that she’s showing such an attitude towards those who’ve served, and are serving under arms, especially those who gave the utmost, in order to protect and defend her right to do this.
Not to be an ass, and I’m likely to get any number of dt’s for this, but, aww, never mind. I won’t even say it, since I in fact would’ve appreciated the opportunity to witness this and then go to jail for assault.

Her freedom of speech is only protected from punishment by the federal government. Her employer is free to fire her at will. Being an a-hole can still get you terminated. Even in Massachusetts.

@Sidekick, always amazes me some peoples take on freedom of speech. Explained it to the teen this way; you tell customers who come in and ask “what’s good today” that the Applebee’s next door is just awesome. Sure you’re free to say it but don’t be shocked and come crying to me when your boss fires your butt.

Well, the meeting was about the Eagle ceremony for my son and 3 other boys…Really big deal lots of pageantry, Rep. Coble is coming to present the boys with Flags that have been flown over the Capital, Marines are coming, also bearing gifts. And anyway lots of planning involved. So this meeting was to finalize the scripts and programs. SO then I was informed that we needed to add something in (after I thought we pretty much had everything settled) I was reminded that 2012 is the 100th anniversary of Eagle Scouts, and that we had a scout in our group (troop 103) who is/will be the 100th Eagle Scout of the Troop. And that we needed to work in a place for that special acknowldgement. SO I immediately grabbed the script and program and started looking to see where we could possiblly squeeze this in…and the other moms started laughing hysterically…and I’m like….Whaaaaat? cuz I had no ides what was funny. Then one mom turned to the other moms…”she’s didn’t even bother to ask which boy it was.” Then she turned to me and said, “drb, it’s your son…he’s the 100th Eagle Scout” And I was like “OMG, are you serious!?!”

Had I been there, I’d of knocked her all the way out cold. Then I’d have busted it out and taken a piss on her. Then, and only then, would I have called her an ambulance for her, which by then she would need, as many others standing in line behind me, would have taken their turn giving her a kick and shower.
This is what the parents of the last generation or two have produced: a whole slew of retards who have no idea where their bread is buttered, and it is all because the retards in public education(ALL FUCKING OF THEM) have taken History out of grade school and replaced it with “social studies” whereby they can revise history, bash our military and call our protectors baby-killers, all the while propagating sex at 12 and real baby killing, after the fruits of that sex produce children.
these sick fucks should all be in NY, CA, MA, NJ, VT, ME, WA, OR, and the other libtard bastions, so that we civilized types don’t have to look at them. And goddamnit-if you see someone do this in public, give them a fucking slap!

A slap?
I’d shine my size 13 motorcycle boots on her ass!
If I had been there, that bitch would be in the hospital, and I’d be in jail!
I don’t give a flying fuck about “free speech” when it comes to disrespect toward people that gave their lives to protect your worthless ass!
I place people like her in the same category as flag burners, I have a patch on my motorcycle vest that is an American Flag with “Try burning this one” on it!
So far, no takers.
