Meet Lindsey Stone. She posted this picture taken on a work trip to Washington DC as an example of her questioning authority and being a rebel. I have since seen it reposted many times on Facebook with all sorts of suggestions about what should be done with Ms. Stone. This is without question a pretty reprehensible thing to do. She is an idiot of the highest order but as I told one of my many imaginary INTERNET friends I don’t think a profanity laden tirade given by R Lee Ermey or anything else would change the mind of someone who could physically stand in the Arlington National Cemetery and think that what she did in that picture is the “right” thing to do.
Additionally, what is being overlooked is the person who took the picture, who thought; “Yeah, I’ll press the shutter on this” or “Yeah, that’s a good idea.” That person is getting a free ride and in my opinion just as guilty as Ms. Stone.
Yep folks, free speech in action. It’s her right to be a stupid idiot, as depicted above. But it’s my right to point out that she’s not only an idiot but disrespectful and childish. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to find out that she had crapped on a cop car or two as well. Enjoy your time in hell, Lindsey, you’ve earned it.
