The Massachusetts woman at the center of the Facebook photo scandal at Arlington Cemetery has been fired from her job at a Cape Cod business, MyFoxBoston.com reports. Lindsey Stone´s employer, Living Independently Forever (LIFE), issued a statement on their Facebook page on Wednesday announcing that they have released the two employees involved in the controversial incident. "We wish to announce that the two employees recently involved in the Arlington Cemetery incident are no longer employees of LIFE. Again, we deeply regret any disrespect to members of the military

Normally I wouldn´t say fire them after doing something so stupid but they were there on the companies dime and it reflects poorly on the organization. Also why have employees who are so stupid.

And I certainly hope her sorry butt does not receive any unemployment benefits...she needs to drag that butt from interview to endless interview and explain why she got fired. Can we put those interviews on Youtube? Wouldn´t that be "cool?"

She should not receive one thin dime of money from anyone.

The company regrets "any disrespect." Being Massachusetts, one gets the impression they fired the pair to still public outcries, not because they condemned what they did.

True, Poster #1, but also this involves, at the least, "poor judgment". Why let such pieces of trash impose this character flaw upon their charges?

Well I think she deserved to be fired. There are things you can joke about and some you just can´t. And the final resting place for men and women who died for their country is one of the can´ts.

I noticed the parents of Stone spoke out about sorry she was. Let´s see an overweight single woman in her late twenties, living with her parents, and working for a non-profit. Oh yeah, I think I´ve spotted part of her problem.

25 complaints were received after the incident? Bet by today, that number has increased to at least 2500.

Yesterday I read that Lindsey’s 61-year old father apologized for her behavior. Apparently, the ‘girl’ is 30 years old and lives at home with mom and dad. I’m sure she went for a liberal arts degree on federally subsidized student loans. Now she will be collecting unemployment and food stamps.

She is the embodiment of the Democrat’s ‘Julia’.

I do find it amazing that actions do occasionally have consequence, even in today´s world of ´its not my fault´.

n 196, or thereabouts, I was visiting the luxemburg american cemetary, where thousands of our troops are buried, with General Patton buried at the top of the layout of graves. And above that is a wall, about 4 feet high.
Perched on that wall was a young woman, striking a pose like a 1940s movie starlet, and a young man was taking her picture.
To this day, I regret not putting the young man and his camera into a trash receptacle.

I thought of that when I saw this story.
And if she didn´t mean to be disrespectful, what did she mean??

Ordinarily, I would say this was a free speech matter and support her right to do it and oppose her being fired. BUT she was on company time on a company trip. I still support her right to do it (vulgar and crass though she may be), but her employer wasn´t wrong to fire her, IMHO.

Correct # 20

Plus, her coworker (appareantly) took the picture and it ended up on FB.

These are all actions taken with a PURPOSE not some High School girl prank.

Can we fire Barack Obama for his two finger gestures aimed at John McCain and Hillary Clinton? No? Is it because he is held to a different standard? What standard is that?

#20- this was never a "free speech" issue. Freedom of speech protects our speech from being punished or limited by the government, and government only!
We certainly do not have freedom to say whatever we want without consequences in the private sector. For example you can´t walk into work every morning and tell your boss vile, disgusting, or vulgar things without it affecting your future employment.

She didn´t mean any disrespect? Well, alright then. I guess in her world, mocking a call for respectful silence and flipping a bird is . . . what?

As much as this chick´s all too common vulgarity is a blight on our culture, so also is her kid of self-justifying non-apology apology, which implies that those who took offense misinterpreted her meaning. What a moron - she´s too stupid to have a job working with people if she doesn´t see any inherent disrespect in her actions.

A 41-year-old Gamaliel man, Wayne Motes, is in the Baxter County jail on a $15,000 bond after police say his 2-year-old son tested positive for methamphetamines. Mountain Home Police responded to 509 Ouachita for a disturbance call on Nov. 3. When they arrived, 39-year-old Stephanie Motes answered the door. Officers asked who was at the residence and Motes reportedly said she was there with a 2-year-old baby.

HAIFA, Israel – Bird-brained terrorists in Lebanon have taken a suspected Israeli spy into custody – an eagle that was outfitted with a transmitter that allowed conservationists to study the raptor’s migratory patterns. In the latest case of Muslim militants seeing a secret agent with wings and a beak, Iranian-backed Hezbollah forces are keeping the eagle under lock and key after it was found by hunters near the town of Ashkout, northeast of Beirut. The bird had a ring around its leg that bore the name ‘Tel Aviv University,’ written in English, as well as a receiver device attached, according to

Wal-Mart (WMT) stores in Springhill and Mansfield, La., saw a stampede and a shelf-clearing rush Saturday after a computer glitch for food stamp recipients led to benefit cards allowing unlimited purchases. Police were called as entire shelves were being cleared out, until the glitch was fixed and low-income residents using the cards were no longer allowed to make purchases.

The 22 children who became ill Thursday after eating lunch at a San Diego school cafeteria made themselves sick on purpose as part of a game, school officials confirmed on Friday. According to San Diego Unified School District spokesman Jack Brandais, a group of students at Audubon Elementary School in the Lomita area were playing a game of “dare” in the cafeteria, urging one another to put different ingredients into their milk to see who could keep the milk down without vomiting. Brandais said the ingredients included hot sauce, salt, pepper, carrots and other vegetables being served at lunch.

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon. She read the cruel posts and Internet snark about her appearance, and it was just too much. “It got to me like it gets kids and teenagers,” she told the Associated Press. The “Vertigo” actress, considered one of the great beauties in her day, posted a note on her Facebook wall Thursday, acknowledging that she’d gotten fat injections in her face and addressing her halted

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to
