(Free Republic)   This time, the president forgot to salute and then just leaned out of the helo, tapped the Marine on the shoulder, and returned the salute. But only after picking up his dog and putting it inside. This is not a repeat from yesterday   (freerepublic.com) divider line 319

I don't even have to guess who submitted and greened this.  Next time, please note that you are sending people to the pukesite that is Free Republic.

Yeah, I didn't think the trick of getting people to post on a worthless derp site by using "Some guy" worked anymore.

I'm appalled that this tradition is being ignored.  I mean, after all, more than 200 years of saluting those in service when you're POTUS.

Oh, wait, it was Reagan in 1981 that started the "tradition"?  You mean that it isn't dictated anywhere how the President of the United States should address active service members?  *gasp*

/please save us all House of Representatives... this is the most important topic you need to address... right after women's vaginas, the bedrooms of others and a host of other things that are more important than creating jerbs

I really love important issues like this.  It's the red meat that feeds our democracy.  We need to feel free to have debates over issues like these that deeply affect the entire country.

How is it that there Fark has icons for everything from "deliciouspaintchips.com" to "lefthandedpolarbears.org" but none for FR?

Does the Queen of England salute back?

Just asking
 
2013-05-26 09:55:20 AM  
a Monkey can be trained to salute too. Gestures are sometimes, well, just gestures.   your pursuits and your efforts to resolve problems and make things better for all Americans is what counts, not stupid gestures that may or may not be genuine.


well done, brit. you've shown that you are shallow and easily impressed.     hell, Hitler was good with the kids because he knew it made good photos. smiled, rubbed their hair, etc ,etc.

See what I mean?  Do I look at that picture and think "I want to know this guy"?  Hell no.  I think, "I would move away from that guy on the bus."
 
2013-05-26 10:02:56 AM  
He's under no obligation to salute, nothing requires him to salute and no slight can or should be taken if he does not salute. This is not a formal military protocol but a "tradition" started in the 80's by Reagan.

This "issue" is an medium-rare Nothingburger served with an extra large portion of Nothing on the side all washed down with a 64oz glass of Diet Nothing.

why not just make an open post, then?   when you reply to someone's post with the statement you used, its natural to assume it is in reponse to the person who made the original post.

2013-05-26 10:06:21 AM  
If it was started by Reagan I would think that the Freepers would be against it.  But wait, Obama didn't follow something that Reagan started?  That would certainly raise the dissonance to 11.
