    Congratulations. She lost her job. I hope you're proud of yourselves. Perhaps internet forums should go to real name users only so that all offensive speech can be similarly punished.

    An equivalent argument would be simply if she were to do the same thing at the Holocaust Memorial or the MLK Memorial. In that circumstance I would take the same position. In fact, if she were to do the same thing at those other two monuments, then perhaps it would be clearer to you that her object was the sign, not the fallen soldiers and veterans.

    Actions have consequences. Period.

    Choosing a location at which honor and respect and service are more than just terms thrown about by someone paying lip service to those qualities to show one's ass demonstrates just how quickly ass showings have teeth.

    In the end, it doesn't really matter what her "true objective" was, even if you actually knew it.

    She picked the wrong battle at the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Ergo, she gets flushed like the proverbial turd. We can only hope she didn't leave a skid mark.

    There are a couple of Facebook pages in support of her. The most prominent one, https://www.facebook.com/LindsaySton...ref=ts&fref=ts, used this as an icon:



    Basically, they're antiwar moonbats who take up any cause that attacks us.

    You can be such an idiot sometimes.

The thing that has changed is that this woman's photo album is now in a format where someone in desperate need of cause could blow it up and portray it as the worst thing anyone ever did. It simply, isn't. And if we're going to start demanding that everyone who does or says something stupid be fired from his job, then I'll assume that you are in a position to throw stones. Are you?
    There are some places that you don't joke around. And if you are stupid enough to joke around, then you will have to deal with the consequences of your actions. In her case, she wasn't simply joking, but deliberately showing gross disrespect at the Tomb of the Unknowns. That's hallowed ground for those of us who, but for the grace of God or luck of the draw, could have ended up there. She sought to offend, and succeeded, and she did it on her employer's dime (it was a business-sponsored trip). She has every right to be an offensive jackass, but we have every right to point out to her employer that we don't appreciate the conduct that he pays for.

    If that had been the case, then she wouldn't have gotten into trouble. She posted the photo on her Facebook page and it went viral. She wanted attention and she got it.

    As for goofing around, perhaps the next time she can pretend to wipe her butt with an AIDS quilt and see your reaction.

    Or any affront to gays for that matter. I wonder how Nova would feel if someone stood in front of Harvey Milk's grave, ate a Twinkie(or some other tubular sponge cake since Twinkie's are on hiatus) and snapped a picture and posted it for all the world to see.

    She didn't wipe her butt on the monument. She goofed around with a sign. She's from New Jersey- what do you expect?

    Even Jerseyites understand RESPECT.

    What that asshat did went far beyond "goofing around with a sign."

    Ain't karma a bitch
    The 21st century. The age of Smart phones and Stupid people.

    It is said that branches draw their life from the vine. Each is separate yet all are one as they share one life giving stem . The Bible tells us we are called to a similar union in life, our lives with the life of God. We are incorporated into him; made sharers in his life. Apart from this union we can do nothing.
