I don't think so....She didn't even have a point other than to shiat on the tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

I visited there once. There are certain places and situations where you should shut up and show some respect and that is one of them. Some poor bastard went to war and died in the service of his country. It's something that every soldier in our military might be asked to do at some point.

You can complain all you want about our foreign policy and how we've fought unjust wars but the grunt on the ground is the one who didn't make those decisions and he (or she) is there doing his (or her) best and often sacrificing their life.

Do you know anyone who has ever died? A parent? A grandparent? A friend? Maybe you should go visit their grave and then visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington. And think about something besides lolcats.

And then think about how you might feel about this girl shiatting on your grandmother's grave.

Meh, it's not like she is doing anything really offensive like shiatting on the sign or something, taking a 2 second picture where you're fake screaming with your middle finger up where you shouldn't be is just like so crazy you guys. I'm more disturbed by the fact she seems to think she is being truly edgy and really defying authority. She strikes me as someone who is incredibly vapid and wouldn't want to stand up to actual authority lest they pepper spray her and beat her with billy clubs.

Yeah - I'm proud to say I can drive with a 0.05 BAC and not kill anyone or cause any accidents, unlike many sober people.

Are you one of those people who thinks the legal limit should be 0.0 BAC? Are you one of those people who thinks drivers should be allowed to run red lights and change lanes without looking so long as they haven't had a drop to drink?


No, I'm one of those people who thinks you're a stupid asshole who constantly spouts off about sh*t he knows nothing about.

It is awfully hard to imagine being in the vicinity of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and somehow also feeling in a joking mood. It's a pretty moving place.

I'm not sure how to explain it. Why did I get a very weird creepy feeling when I drove past Dachau in Germany? I'm not even Jewish. Dachau and Arlington are not the same thing by any stretch of the imagination but like I said earlier there are some places where you should just shut up and show some respect.

The reason I didn't stop and visit Dachau was because I didn't want to think about it. I just wanted to get away from it, but imagine if you will the outrage that would have happened if this coont had visited Dachau and done the same thing. At the same time, let's put the outrage in perspective. This isn't making national headlines. It's not news, it's Fark.

What if she had done the same to a national symbol of another country? Wiped her ass with the Union Jack while standing in front of Buckingham Palace? Some people might have a problem with that.

Maybe it's not quite as bad as holding a punk rock prayer in the most important church in the nation which is probably why she's not being sent to a gulag, but she deserves every ounce of ridicule and loathing that she is getting.

It might have been different if she had a point, but she wasn't protesting US foreign policy - she just wanted to take a shiat on a grave that is very a revered and solemn place in the US. .

So you have a problem with the military. I get that. But I would point out again that the average GI or even most officers have nothing to do with foreign policy or which wars they are ordered to fight in.

Most Americans never go to Arlington. That's cool with me. This girl did go to Arlington and she let the world know that she was giving a big "f*ck you" to everyone who ever served in the military.

Yet another dumbass who doesn't understand what free speech actually means. No one is using the force of the federal government to silence or imprison her. That is what the First Amendment protects against. She has every right to express herself the way she did.

Seriously. This was a stupid kid making a stupid mistake like stupid kids tend to do and yet the internet is bound and determined to ruin the lives and livelihoods of everyone even remotely connected to this girl.

It's not like she killed anyone. It's not like she stole anything or committed a hate crime or any crime for that matter. She just took a stupid goofy picture and put it on her facebook page. I have profound respect for the military, especially those that gave their lives, but it's not like she was defacing tombstones or urinating on graves.

To those of you who are posting on her boss's page and commenting publicly about this: who do you think you are that you're entitled to harass her employers who had nothing to do with it and generally fark up this girl forever? It must be nice to have never done anything immature before. You're just being judgmental dicks.

No matter how she feels about our foreign policy or the military, it is the sacrifices of our men and women in uniform that made it possible for her to lead the kind of privileged, entitled life that turned her into a spoiled, arrogant, self-professed "douchebag." Ms. Stone's behavior shows that she is a callow, ill-bred, selfish child without any of the character or integrity of the servicemembers whom she so thoughtlessly insulted. She represents the very worst of her generation. The Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines represent the very best.

I'll cop to being way b*tchier than I should have, but I do stand by my point. What she did was disrespectful and not nearly as funny or edgy as she thought it was, but the level of outrage because she happened to do it in Arlington is emblematic of a larger problem in America today. When every person at all associated with the military is an OMGHERO! it cheapens actual heroic actions.

For the record, my dad retired when I was 16 after 20 years as a Naval officer. During my life as a public school student, we moved every year or two and I attended 12 different public school. I have a healthy level of respect for the military.

Why is that even a question? Because of her actions, the non-profit organization at which she works is now forever (as far as the Internet goes) linked to "that bird-flipping moron at Arlington." Every time someone searches for Living Independently Forever, Inc., her stupid stunt is going to come up.

It's probably a moot point. The two of them have been placed on unpaid leave, and I think the non-profit is hoping it'll blow over. If & when it doesn't, I'm betting at least one of them (the moron featured in the picture) will be fired.

She is an idiot, but it isn't like the majority of our country really has all this mad respect for soldiers anyways. It's all lip service and manipulation by those controlling them.

The same people who still view the Iraq war as justified are the first people who will throw a hissy fit over fast and furious. Meanwhile I was told I hated the troops because I didn't want our country to start wars and nation-building operations and now I get told things like I don't value lives because I don't see F&F as the greatest issue of them all.

I don't know why this is bothering me so much, but it is.

Question for all the people vilifying this woman: Do you GENUINELY think that her intent with this picture is to give a big "FARK YOU!" to all the military and the people who died for this country? Like, she went to Arlington, suddenly realized how much she hates dead soldiers, then said to her husband "Get a pic of me one finger saluting these dead arseholes. Hey, then I'll post it to Facebook so the world can see how much I hate them!"

Or did she say:

"Haha, look at the sign. Take a picture of me being ironic."

Now carefully apply Occam's razor.

Have fun dealing with the consequences of your free speech biatch! I hope your employer is willing to as well.

Not when sleazy media assholes can profit by dividing us. Why do you think this "asshole du jour" story was put on the Politics tab? Clicky, clicky, clicky!

I disagree with what she had to say, but will defend to the death her right to say it.

velvet_fog: It was a stupid thing to do, but all the people saying she should be fired are wrong. Free speech protects even the speech we find particularly objectionable. Ironically, that's one of the things the unknown soldier died for.


Private business. If your employee acts like an ass on the internet (and that ass-like behavior is in public view for everyone to see), the company has every right to fire you because you're misrepresenting them.

I've seen it happen many times.

I think it would be a different story if the pic was funny. But it reeks of trying too hard.

Also, why do they ask for silence and reverence at the Jefferson Memorial. The man was a fancy-pants nancy boy who could hold a candle to the awesomeness that was Alexander Hamilton.

Nofun: This lady deserves the criticism. Defiling the tomb of unknown soldier is not the same thing as sticking it to the man. It's defiling the memory of the person who gave you the right to stick it to the man.

Confabulat: Happy Hours: Do you know anyone who has ever died? A parent? A grandparent? A friend? Maybe you should go visit their grave and then visit the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington. And think about something besides lolcats.

And then think about how you might feel about this girl shiatting on your grandmother's grave.

My father was in Vietnam when I was born, and he spent 25 years in the military raising a family of five boys and a wife on a serviceman's salary.

He's dead now, but he would have had a good chuckle over that photo.


My grandfather was in Korea. A lot of his friends died. He would not have chuckled.

It is a profound lack of respect but why get worked up over it? If I was there I would have quietly told her not to be a dick, and I'm not even American, but you'll be hard pressed to get me as annoyed as some people are over a picture on the internet.

Happy Hours: Can you explain to the class how anything I said was "moronic" or "dumb" or "f*cking clueless"?

Happy Hours: So you have a problem with the military.

Happy Hours: kxs401: No, I'm one of those people who thinks you're a stupid asshole who constantly spouts off about sh*t he knows nothing about.

And yet you can't articulate exactly what I said in my earlier post that was "dumb". Do you have a point or are you just going to call me names?


There's the fact that it had nothing to do with my post, which you were ostensibly replying to.

She is sticking it to the man.
