And you would also be the first to admit that you are so far outside of mainstream in thinking, that if you feel this way, you understand it's the opposite of what normal people think.

You do realize that picture isn't the employee, right? I value freedom very much but I also value respect. Both people in this scenario sound like douche bags.

I do, but no where in the article does it say the employee was working. Seeing when it was posted, it could have been a reservist showing off his shite at work before the ball or something. We dont know and this is more than likely true:

You dishonor the men and women that earned those medals if you think that way. I find it hard to believe that you wore the uniform with comments like that.

Don't think that's him. That's not a marine corps uniform. Alpha blouse has black buttons.

The person wearing such a uniform in this context likely had no malice and was probably blissfully ignorant of what you consider the significance of it.

Only fairies are that concerned about attire, fairy.

I don't have a problem with that...they earned the right to do what they did.

No doubt. The fricking issue is what happened when he pointed out what was wrong about it.

that they did, but they were fighting for the right for this guy to do what he did, hell, no one gave Michael Jackson shite about wearing military uniforms with medals on them, no one brought up the point that Dick Cheney would have been a lot better marksman if he'd taken the weapon thegovernment tried to offer him 7-8 times during the VN war, we fight for everyones rights, gotta take the good with the bad

That's not always easy when most of those people don't have a fricking clue about what it took for them to have the right to disgrace the people that gave them the right to do so.

If you really think that the majority of veterans that fought in battle were doing so in order for people to misrepresent themselves, and mock the military while falsely wearing earned medals, you are completely out of touch with the veteran's mindset. And that's a fact.

Not at all. You sincerely are a failure at reading comprehension, and your posts reveal it.

Well said. I don't have much faith in this Country if what he said is the mainstream thinking.
