Feel Good Story Of The Holiday- Self-Proclaimed Douchebag Gets Fired

Remember Lindsey "I Gotta Be Me And Disrespect The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldiers" Stone? Well now comes word that for some reason her employer doesn't want to have someone on their staff who is crass enough to do that and dumb enough to tell the world about it.

The gang at This Ain't Hell broke the original story and argue it's about more than one idiot who just has to be an idiot.

If there had been social media in the middle 70s, and a photo like this had been taken and spread around, it would have got guffaws and applause. Probably right up through the eighties, that photo would have elicited that response. The country had lost it’s way in the late sixties. People like John Kerry were heroes. Morals didn’t exist in the popular culture. Jimmy Carter awarded the folks who ran out on their responsibilities a pardon his first day in office. There were no consequences for bad acting.

What happened to Lindsey Stone this week had nothing to do with “blind adoration of the military”, it had to do with a line being drawn in the sand of the culture war. It turns out that some Americans are tired of the “Occupy” generation. Their outrage over this picture has been building in the last several years.
