@AN AMERICAN, AYE AYE, CAPTAIN! *fires bald eagles and fireworks into sky*
Once my highschool didn't take mlk Jr. Day off and the superintendent got fired because my school was like 98% white kids so it looked very racist
@Boner Forest, PC culture sucks
@Boner Forest, if it walks like a duck...
@KeKesUHaulFacility , ....it quacks? I don't get the metaphor
@MrWonka, I think she's trying to say that she's a racist pigeon
@MrWonka, The saying is, "if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck and swims like a duck, it's probably a duck", they said it looked very racist so "if it walks like a duck"="if it looked racist", you know the rest
@KeKesUHaulFacility , that's not how it works. That's not how any of this works. If you're racist then you des criminals against somebody for their race. They simply didn't take the day off for a holiday celebrating a black man, they didn't burn his picture in the cafeteria while handing out honorary clansmen badges. Hell I would argue automatically assuming somebody is racist because they're white is actually racist.
@King Cock, *discriminate dammit now I look dumb
@King Cock, There is such a thing as covert racism
@KeKesUHaulFacility , nah man, racism isn't covert ops like solid snake. No offense but that stuff is mostly just people grasping at straws to be offended about something to feed their martyr complex.
@King Cock, Wouldn't it all just be so easy if that were the case.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , yeah. It's a good thing it is.
@King Cock, ......whaaaa?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , If I see you skip a single white holiday, you are then, undoubtedly, a complete racist bitch!
@Can yew knot, What is a white holiday?? National Fvck Your Relatives Day? The UN's Annual Make Nasty Potato Salad Celebration?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , Columbus Day, but he's a monster that doesn't deserve celebration
@KeKesUHaulFacility , Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, you name it. They all had white men in it. Skip them or do anything over than spend the day cheering in parades, and you're a confirmed racist. That's how it works!
@Can yew knot, What about all the black, latinx, and native soldiers?
@KeKesUHaulFacility , Obviously they did some of the work too. But white men did most of it, factually. So by skipping the holiday, you are COVERTLY performing a RACIST act and thus a racist. If the shoe fits, wear it
@Can yew knot, It's a good thing the shoe is about 3 sizes to big then, hmm? I'll wait while you check in the back for more.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , trying to justify your obviously covert racism towards any non blacks huh? How shameful
@Can yew knot, How can something be obvious AND covert? You're not making sense.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , you were trying to make your racism covert, but now everyone can easily see it. You've been exposed as a racist bitch because you don't celebrate white holidays! Hah
@Can yew knot, Columbus day dismisses itself, Veterans and Memorial Day are basically just fronts to sell things nowadays if we really cared about veterans we'd be offering mental health care services and more job programs, and the Fourth of July is celebrating what? The day rich white heterosexual men got even more freedom than they already had? I'll pass.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , wow, what racist thinking.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , you need help and counseling to accept all races!
That's a old ass dad
@ZweihanderNLeaveHer, my dad is also old. He joined the army 3 months after Vietnam ended.
@ElectricalFire, thank him for me, please.
@ZweihanderNLeaveHer, my dad would've been 70 this Sept & the youngest is turning 19
@DistractedDingo, I will. Interesting story time, his twin brother, my uncle, also joined the army a year after my dad. When he was in he got hit in the head by a tank hatch and it knocked all of his teeth out.
@Raaach, "would've been". Tears and sadness.
@ElectricalFire, aww it's okay
(Stands up and claps) Bravo this is amazing!
I wish I could give this wonderful father and veteran more than one up vote.
@MEnpowered, i wish the same so hopefully my upvote will help!
I always did hate that I had to wait until I got home from school at like 4 in the afternoon to be able to go to the graves of the veterans I know to pay my respects.
@King Cock, This post got a lot funnier when I saw your username.
@uglybus , you're damn right it did.
Thank God, some common sense.
Where all my vets at? I know some of you exist on here. Marine Corps here!
I feel like a majority of people would give pause and say, "hmm MLK day? I should try and use another holiday to avoid any kind of racial undertone." This guy either A. didn't care, B. was oblivous, or C. Used his last piece of paper.
I'm getting some strong phony vibes from this. First off, is the age as the dad would be fairly old. Secondly, the fact he referred to the 1st Infantry Division as "The Big Red One" which is very informal and if you're going to sign off in such a formal manner you'd probably refer to it as its formal name. Thirdly, he doubled down on the rank by saying he was an E-5 in pay grade and a Sgt. Which are basically the same thing. I dunno
I didn't know that FP stood for Facebook Pics. (Sorry if this has already been said, but I can't remember)
@Night Shift Watcher, Don't know why you got down votes. I thought it was funny.
@Night Shift Watcher, i thought it was true. I see a Facebook post here. I like this post personally, but that doesn't matter. This is funny pics. You don't do that.
@CircuitPony, I believe it is because people think on disrespecting veterans. I'm really not trying to. I'm just saying that I would like some funny in my pics. Not facebook
@Night Shift Watcher, nobody thinks that. Seeing this post on every other picture is annoying. First time it was funny now it's fvcking repetitive.
@FFCrisisC, well as much as other people hate facebook comments the others also dont like to have unfunny stuff on their "funny" app. We come here for funny and thats what we expect. Its cool that the guy did that because we DO need to honor veterans but I dont cone on here for facebook stuff. I'm sorry.
@Night Shift Watcher, I don't like unfunny stuff on my app either but that includes stupid unfunny unoriginal comments. Pay attention your saying the same shjt he said.
@FFCrisisC, well I am sorry that I would like to share my opinion through a way that other people will easily understand without me having to explain what I mean. And I can deal with a couple downvoyes just as long as I can get my point across. It not like stuck pixel is changing anything about it anytime soon. (As in the contnt/material of the app)
I agree they should get Veterans Day off but bring up Martin Luther King Day in this case intentionally brings race into an issue that has nothing to do with race. If you want to complain about a holiday try Columbus Day.
@Darth Knight, thank you. I think the implication is that it makes me think the author is at least occasionally racist...
@Darth Knight, so your point is that he didn't bring up the correct bullshjt holiday? That shjts so stupid get the hell over it waaaw waaw waaw they didn't possibly think of every single race and religion and ethnicity before saying doing or posting something they're racist!
@Darth Knight, Yes, fuсk Columbus. That being said, There is no issue of race here. This guy's saying that both holidays are equally significant and schcool should be closed on both days.
@Darth Knight, As someone who LOVES to bring race into things I totally agree with you. He was doing the most.
@Trump Repellant, Hey hey hey, Columbus is a great city!! A great city named after an awful man.
@Darth Knight, it doesnt have to bring up race if you dont make it a race problem. Im tired of this race problem we are having in this country. MLK was an American. We are Americans, stop labeling people off of the color of one's skin
@KeKesUHaulFacility , I hope you were joking about loving to bring race into things
@Osama bin Dead, she isn't. She's extremely racist, and about as intelligent as an average chimpanzee.
@Cpzombie, a chimp is probably smarter
@Osama bin Dead, Oh, you're tired? Take a nap, then. I'm trying to survive in a country built on my people's subjugation.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , man staying on that cross all day must get tiring.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , there you go again dividing people over this race bs. Stop bringing it up. No one is subjugating you anymore, so calm down race baiter
@Osama bin Dead, Have any of yall considered that I might WANT to put a divide between me and racists (and racist apologists)? Like I don't really need that negative energy in my life.
@KeKesUHaulFacility , so go away. We don't want you.
I mean, it's true though.
Boom !! mic drop *
Ummm... How bout honoring veterans AND mlk by going to school/work and trying to make our country a better place. Sorry, I dont believe in days off for any reason (minus sickness/death) including Christmas (because America SHOULD be a secular country).
@lockke, that's how you stress everybody out and cause riots. People need holidays.
@lockke, I don't celebrate holidays. But come on, I still like Christmas. People still give me sh-t.
@lockke, America's never been and never will be secular. You want an atheist country, you move to one. The day America is secular is the day it's no longer America.
@TechnoLogic, atheist and secular are a bit different. Do you know of any secular nations though? Or at least one with some much religious diversity or apathy that it appears secular due to a 'minority majority' ?
@BRB, "Minority majority" has Sweden written all over it. China, Czech Republic, and Japan are a few to name. I compare secularism to atheism because anyone who denotes aspects of their life without consideration of their religion is not doing themselves much of a favor. I'm not saying they're atheists, just not the best representative of their religion.
@TechnoLogic, America has ALWAYS been secular. Read a book. The day the Christians take over is the day we become like Iran.
@lockke, I don't know what kind of water the argument "read a book" can hold. And you'd have to be in the matrix to make that logical leap between Christian's being prevalent in America and a comparison to Iran.
@lockke, Not even weekends?
I'm skeptical. Keeping your kid out of school to protest your kid being out of school for other reasons doesn't make much sense to me.
@Negamanee, that wasn't his point. Both days are national holidays, therefore schools should be closed for both days.
@talmet, But his point was that kids shouldn't be out of school for either days
@Council of Pups, uh...no. His point was he was excusing his kids from school on Veterans Day, because he is a veteran, and Veterans Day is a national holiday.
@Bubble Upload, Clearly the point was both are holidays and both should be considered days off so kids can celebrate and or commiserate with family as they see fit. At no point did the vet say they didn't want their kid off for Veterans Day. They literally said they wanted Veterans Day to be considered a school holiday.
Fvck this guy! He could of clearly said Columbus Day or any other day but Na he had to go with MLK. Racist douche
I find this odd. We went to school on both Martin Luther King Day and Veterans Day. Both were used to learn about that holiday. I move to California and it's like kids have every other f*cking week off. "Oh, it's national doughnut day! Take a week off!" Must be nice.
Veterans are awesome, it's so nice that they help all those injured and sick animals.
My dad's a Vietnam Veteran too. I tried this once and he told me that I better go to fvucking school no matter what day it is.
At my school, we do a huge Veterans Day luncheon where the kids have to dress up and we invite a bunch of veterans to eat with us and share their stories with the kids. There's also a choir performance and pictures and stuff. It's a really big deal and the teachers take it really seriously
Welp. Time to copy this note for me since my name is Danielle!
I just woke up and I thought I said Valentine's Day at first
I can't read that very well, can someone tell me what it says?
In Massachusetts Veterans day is a state holiday. I didn't know other states didn't give kids the day off from school
What's MLK got to do with it?
Lol at my school we get out for both :)
I feel like my school is closed for both days...
When I was in school we didn't go to school on Veterans Day but I remember going on MLKJr day.
What about Memorial Day? Schools are out for that, and that commemorates fallen soldiers.
@Galavant , Veteran's day and memorial day are not the same thing. Memorial is for fallen military, veteran's is for, well, veterans. Living veterans.
