    As long as we distract ourselves with stupid a** BS like this, instead of looking at ACTUAL issues, we're going to continue to have problems. So in my opinion, you are what's wrong with this country. You, the typical american voter who gets wrapped up in idiotic sensationalistic stories like this instead of finding the real issues.
    So this is the man's opinion to which he is priviledge to have. In fact he is correct in that there is a lost of respect for our country and fellow contrymen. On the national level you have politicians who have this patriotic respect for you while filling that back pocket and on the local level you have people as such who have no respect for those who gave so much for them.

    But why not come off your high horse and tell us what you personally have done about the debt and wars which you state are our biggest problems.

    I don't get the backlash. It honesty seems to be worse than anything she could have managed.
    In fact it is breaking the US Army's code of conduct on their property.

    It was annoying, offensive to many, so she should be fired?

    She's not in the service - there's a whole host of things my husband lives by that others don't. . . and me, too, being married into the military.

    It's not a fire able offense - it doesn't bump her down to the level of a thief.

    Why does this negate the overall 'she shouldn't have done it, what a dumbass' response to you?

    Oh, so now you respect someone's right to their own opinion? Or only when it meshes with yours? You're part of the same group of whiners that believe she should've been fired for her opinion.

    And yeah, nice way to try to tie "respect" back into the debt crisis. Not even close to what caused it, homie.

    It's strange, I think, what elicits extreme responses and what doesn't - it's like Russian roulette with public opinions.

    You're pretty confused... And you imply you're slightly "liberal?"

    You apparently have no idea what liberalism is defined as...

    John Galt is an idea of freedom - an expression of individuality.

    I can't say I'm shocked you cannot understand the "John Galt concept" considering you're "slightly progressive."

    You need to understand that you're not liberal - you're a progressive. Don't even attempt to portray yourself as a liberal.

    Point out exactly where I disrespect anyone. If you could.

    Its funny how a chicken **** like you can lie your ignorant ****ing face off about me and I get infracted. Yet your bitch ass is what?

    ****ing typical.
    I'd suggest you read the rules.

    And chill out, for God's sake.

    You'll forgive me if I don't consider an Ayn Rand devotee as an expert on liberalism. In fact I don't consider Ayn Rand devotees as expert on anything.

    No she shouldn't have been fired, however progressives have created a society where people are fired for their political ideas and beliefs.

    This is what happens when people are treated as sheep and don't go with the flow...

    People get fired all the time for making anti-Obama statements or anti-homosexual statements (among other "anti" statements) on facebook or other social media sites. It all started with progressives firing people for making controversial statements.

    Like I said - this is what happens when individuals are judged....

    I'm not a devotee to anything or anyone but God.

    The simple fact you use language like "devotee" shows you have no concept of individualism.

    I'm not a devotee to Ayn Rand - I agree with Ayn Rand. Ayn Rand isn't God, Ayn Rand isn't and wasn't a leader - she was a person just like me with ideas...

    You see, you wouldn't understand because you view society as leaders and followers and we should all do what we're told like a bunch of sheep. Well, who says what we're told to do is the right thing to do? in what universe is brainwashing an individual to follow the pack while leaving them to neglect their own ideas of what is right and wrong the right thing to do?

    Everyday a progressive will call me a racist hatemonger for disagreeing with Obama, but these same fools will turn around and bash Bush as if that doesn't contradict their own opinions on hate or disagreement... So they can hate Bush but I cant disagree with Obama? They can burn a US flag because they're all bent about war (and a war they now support now that a democrat is president) but I cant fly my flag upside down because I feel this country is in distress??

    Funny how I respect their freedoms yet they don't respect mine.

    You can save your answer because I already know what it is "I don't believe that" - I call that typical denial.

    Then you attack the idea of John Galt? the idea of individualism, the idea to say "no" to the leader of the pack? the idea to not conform? to not join a union and take on their collectivist ideologies?

    The simple fact that you're questioning my ideas shows that you don't comprehend what I'm telling you and that you're one of the collectivists, if that wasn't the case you would be agreeing with me right now.

    Now, you can go ahead and write a few sentences proclaiming that I'm a loon or a "moonbat" for believing in individualism and liberty...
