What a Sorry Excuse

I'm not a violent person at all, but this is one guy I would like to punch in the mouth. It's difficult for me to understand where people with his views and ideology come to be.

    Why would any news or website run a story about this guy and what he thinks? What is the value of the article?

    Why do they do stories about people just carrying guns when they have a permit?
    White does the media cover stories of the KKK and who they support?
    Why is cash me owside a thing?

    We live in a digital age and actions and words have consequences. But you already knew that.

    For some you don't reach adulthood until age 26. Any way, we all have parents, so we are all children to someone no matter our age, so there is that.

    I believe I was posting a question about the specific story in the OP. No need to take it somewhere else.....

    When I was returning home from Iraq in 04 I boarded a commercial flight in Atlanta. Once everybody had boarded the plane the stewardess gave her usual safety speech and then stated that the Captain had an announcement. The Captain introduced himself and then stated," Ladies and gentlemen I'm proud to announce that we have an American hero flying with us today seated in seat(whatever #)". Next thing I know the entire plane stood up and began clapping and cheering. The Captain then stated," Per my order seat #2 in First Class has been reserved for you". Not being the type that seeks being the center of attention I said thank you and sat back down. A stewardess and the passengers around me told me that it was okay and that I had earned it. On my way up the isle I received hand shakes, pats on the back and hugs from nearly everyone I walked past. Once at the seat the stewardess asked me what beer I would be drinking and I told her that I couldn't because I was in uniform. The guy across the isle from me pulled his retired military I.D. out (recently retired Navy Captain O-6) and stated that I now had permission.

    The reason I shared this story was because this ******* so called professor has no clue what our military service members really need. When I went back to the sandbox one of things I took with me was the memory of that day and the kindness shone to me by those people on that plane and I knew what I was doing was just and right regardless of the politics involved.

    Thank you for your service. You served to protect the freedom we all enjoy, including Mr Ciccariello, who has every American right to express his opinion. You don't have to agree or like it, but you have to agree it's his right.

    Agree that he has the right to run his suck, but maybe he should use his head before opening his mouth. Be angry with the politicians, don't put down an act of kindness directed toward a service member. Dude has issues

    And his employer has the right to fire the ****head and I have the right to hope he is unemployed and destitute for the rest of his days.

    Just because a person has the right to say or do something doesn't mean they should, nor does having the ability to speak what you think keep you from being a ****** rocket.

    I can honestly say that had I been there he'd be in hospital, and I'd be in jail. Just can't understand what has gone so terribly wrong in this country!
  • mara5mara5 Posts: 147 Deckhand
    I agree, he has right to say what he wants and believes, but he and everyone else should realize there can be consequences for that speech. I sent an email to the univ. President stating such. I feel better.

    That one is easy. It supports the cause...
    The teacher is a knucklehead and most likely was trolled like never before. He should have just kept his mouth shut. I think it was an Honorable thing to do. But how, does it end up a news story ? Who pushed for the coverage ? So many do things like this for the coverage now, but of course, you could never accuse them or call it out, because they can deny it and you have no proof... i.e. NFL and troops returning, FOR DA MONEY...
    To have an opinion about anything anymore don't work. Your opinion needs to be good, fall in line with the people who love to bash those with alternative opinions.

    On my way to work today, some guy in front of me rolled down his window and gave bum some money. I felt like vomiting and yelling, what about the Red Cross!
