How shunning works in the 21st Century.

Woman who caused outrage with Arlington National Ceremony photo reveals how she lost her job, can't date and lives in fear of 'lapse of judgement' resurfacing years on.

Cry me a river. Actions have consequences, maybe her parents should have taught her that along with respecting the dead. She deserved all of what happened to her.

Her father said "She meant NO DISRESPECT" I say BULLSHIT to him and she got whatever she deserves (present tense meaning there is more to come for her).

Reap the wind, sow the whirlwind.
It's about time these Libtards started receiving the true rewards (punishments) for their actions, instead of getting a pass from their equally Libtard peers.

Stone is a typical, self-absorbed millenial, who disrespects the spirits of the men and women interred at Arlington National Cemetery, and wonders what the upset is about.

If that clueless, uneducated girl had heeded the sign she gestured at, none of the outrage would have happened.

I have an ancestor buried there. I would be happy to educate Stone in respect for the deceased, should we ever meet.

Stone's witless actions caused the problem. She should not be surprised at the anger focused at her.

People forget. In our high tech always busy society, no one wants to spend a majority of their time on just one issue.

Case in point. Do you all remember the trial for that woman who was accused of murdering her baby daughter a few years ago? She was aquitted at trial, but all the major news networks televised the ongoing drama day after day after day. I forgot her name, and I might only vaguly recognize her is she walked into a bar. Things have a tendancy to become yesterday's news rather quickly. Fads change. Given enough time, no one will remember. Now if future employers dig and are able to always recall this photo, then that stinks I guess. Free speech is not necessarily free of retribution.

Karma sucks, don't it?

I'm not thinking this fat cow has many opportunities to "let anyone new into her life" in the first place.....

But, yeah **** her and the livestock wagon she rode in on.

Shunning is a VERY powerful tool, as this article demonstrates.

In Ferguson, MO the police are having a tough time finding new recruits... imagine the "love" the current cops feel... (ignoring the issue of whether the kid was shot lawfully)

I once had a neighbor who seemed nice enough, until he told me he was FBI working at the local "fusion center." After that, NOBODY would talk to him. (I moved away.)

I posted it FB again.

She looks vaguely familiar....like the spawn of Obama and Jane Fonda. May the Bitch Karma live in her basement. I really liked the part about her father apologizing for her...never a word from her....hmmm. I doubt any real sincerity other than getting busted.

One thing that really makes me boil about Stone and her disrespect is that at the end of the Guardian article is a link to another article,

http://www.theguardian.com/technology/2015/feb/21/internet-shaming-lindsey-stone-jon-ronson

which though a kittle bit strange, shows an unredacted image of Stone's disrespect, and the fact that her family has hired internet "image consultants", whose job is to flood the search engines with positive information about her, in order to make the furor "go away".

Apparently, her family has money for this, she now has another job, and lives in a waterfront community. I guess money makes everything okay.

I wonder what Stone's family would say if others posted similar images where her ancestors are buried? I would not care to see that type of disrespect either.
