Father ‘appalled’ by
disrespectful Facebook pic

Boston Herald, by Jessica Heslam

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 11/21/2012 7:17:42 PM

The mortified father of a Plymouth woman under cyber assault for posting a photo of herself flipping the bird at sacred Arlington National Cemetery said his only daughter apologizes to anyone she’s offended — especially soldiers. The controversial Facebook photo shows Lindsey Stone with her mouth wide open and giving the finger near what appears to be the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and a sign that reads: “Silence and Respect.” “She’s totally apologetic. She apologizes to anybody she’s offended,” her father, Peter Stone, told me last night.

Absolutely no excuse for this thoughtless individual to desecrate the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. She needs to be taken to the woodshed by her apologetic Dad THEN made to stand at attention 50 feet from the Tomb for seven days, no sleep, no food, no anything! Let her learn the hard way what these brave men died for!

What did this idiot think the sign represented, respect for the sign itself? Maybe she really is that stupid, but I am sure it penetrated what passes for her brain that the sign was meant for the whole cemetery, and thus what she did was directed to those buried there.

If she was "totally apologetic" then her dad wouldn´t be the one making it and it wouldn´t be to just those that are offended.

Criminals, crooks and creeps, and even jerks like Lindsey Stone, are always "sorry" - but only after they are caught and held accountable for their actions.

"under cyber assault"

See, she´s being bullied. And she says it was just a spur of the moment thing. But then so was posting it to Facebook, I guess. And keeping it there until the carp hit the fan.

She´s sorry she got caught. She has respect for nothing and for no one. Her place of employment should fire her because she was on a trip with 40 residents when she behaved this way. How professional.

The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is symbolic...no name and no family.But...just beyond are the vast fields where real heros are buried, mourned by the families that loved them. I have been to Arlington several times. The silence that hangs over the place should humble even the coldest among us. It´s the nearest thing we have to holy ground. She came to flip us all the bird and laugh while she did it. People like this walk among us, and they vote.

I don´t give a damn what her intentions were. She is a grown child whose impetuous desires are to met, social mores be damned.

Huge majorities on East Coast

A shocking poll released Tuesday shows overwhelming majorities of people in Virginia, New York and New Jersey support a national gun registry. The survey released Tuesday was done jointly by Roanoke College in Virginia, Rutgers-Eagleton in New Jersey and Siena College in New York. It shows that 68 percent of New York voters and a whopping 74 percent of New Jersey voters are in favor of establishing a national gun registry. Even in the southern state of Virginia — which has gone blue in recent years — 63 percent want the federal government to track all guns. NRA Spokesman Andrew

(2+ min. video) In remarks at the White House last week, first lady Michelle Obama cited an effort by Fairfax County high school students to promote healthier eating habits. While announcing a new initiative last Tuesday to curtail junk food marketing in public schools, Obama noted that students from Marshall High School in Fairfax had helped write a song about more nutritious meal choices. Obama said the song, called “wRap,” shows how much students care about what they eat. Obama then recited her favorite lyrics from the song: “If I’m gonna help my brain come to fruition, I’m gonna have

President Obama unveiled a $3.9 trillion budget plan on Tuesday that drops earlier proposals to cut future Social Security benefits and seeks new money for infrastructure, education and jobs training -- handing Democrats running for re-election a political playbook but angering Republicans who called the blueprint "irresponsible." The plan sent to Congress hammers the president´s theme of "opportunity" for Americans. "It is a road map for creating jobs with good wages and expanding opportunity for Americans," Obama said in Washington. But Obama´s almost $4 trillion budget plan is likely to have a short shelf life. Coming just three months after

MOSCOW/KERCH, Ukraine— U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry arrived in Kiev on Tuesday and announced an economic package and technical assistance for Ukraine in a show of support for its new government amid escalating tensions with Russia. Kerry described the visit, his first visit since the overthrow of Russian-backed President Victor Yanukovich, as "moving, distressing and inspiring." Kerry´s visit comes as Washington and its Western allies step up pressure on Moscow to withdraw its troops from Ukraine´s Crimea region or face economic sanctions and diplomatic isolation.

The first Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, convened in Washington 41 years ago drawing a little more than 100 conservative activists from around the country who found themselves enthralled by a keynote address delivered by California’s Republican governor, Ronald Reagan. Since then, CPAC has grown to the event that will kick off this Thursday. It is expected to draw as many as 10,000 or 11,000 conservatives from every corner of the country and from perhaps a dozen or so foreign countries. Some of them will have attended every CPAC since that first one, but nearly half of them will

Liberals claim to be better than other mortals. Liberals, they tell us, are a political anomaly who vote for other people’s benefit, not their own. Democrats see themselves as the generous party, the saviors of the needy, the elderly, the minority underdog against the cruel hand of fate and Republicans. Liberals are right: there is a difference in caring that shows up along party lines. Conservatives give more, a lot more. They aren’t content with good-hearted wishes, they do good deeds, turning wishes into actions. Conservatives are ten times more personally charitable, even to secular causes. They do far more

As President Obama prepares to release his budget plan on Tuesday, all 50 governors have signed a letter asking him to keep the Guard´s ranks at 350,000, instead of cutting it down to 335,000 as the Pentagon has suggested.

Academy officials said Monday some cadets possibly copied portions of a lab report assignment. The school says about 500 cadets are enrolled in the class.

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in which “the tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he

Saturday, the Republican National Committee (RNC) released a statement in honor of Women’s History Month in which they highlighted women trailblazers, mentioning some prominent women in the Republican Party. Conspicuously absent, however, was former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.Republicans “played a leading role in securing women’s right to vote,” Chairman Reince Priebus and Co-Chairman Sharon Day wrote, adding that Susan B. Anthony joined with other suffragists to pass the 19th Amendment, which was finally accomplished in 1919.

He leads a company that some would consider the epitome of ruthless global capitalism. But Apple chief executive Tim Cook has shocked some in the US with an impassioned attack on the single-minded pursuit of profit – and a direct appeal to climate-change deniers not to buy shares in his firm. Eyewitnesses said Cook, who succeeded Steve Jobs as boss of the technology giant in 2011, was visibly angry as he took on a group of right-wing investors during a question-and-answer session at a shareholders’ meeting.
