Nearly all the morons with signs posted on this site have these traits in common: unfocused, paranoid complaints, barely legible signs, a random mix of upper and lower case letters, laughable character and line spacing, and flag desecration in the name of patriotism. I don't get it.

This sign, for instance, contains a clear threat to the President of the United States. Does a lower case letter u in a sign otherwise written in caps suggest mentally instability?

What are the chances she means she was in a Concentration Camp or Extermination Camp in Poland during WWII?? Regardless of the accuracy of her POW status, don't her object/subject, verb, and word order choices suggest that it was Mr. Obama that took away her freedoms during 1941-1945? The same Mr. Obama that was born in 1961??

A concentration camp prisoner wouldn't be a POW. I'm thinking she might have been one of the Angels of Bataan, in which case I honor her.

If she was a POW in 1945, at, let's say, the age of 20, that would make her 85 now. She looks pretty good for 85! I mean, apart from the ridiculous star-spangled outfit...

I'm guessing that would be closer to 90. She would have been a nurse in 41, probably at age 19 at a minimum. OK, so maybe a bit farfetched. However, there were American children in the Philippines who were taken prisoner during the Japanese invasion.

American Children were prisoners of the Japanese in the Philippines and in China, but why go there? When she says she will not allow Mr. Obama to take her freedom away, assuming she means to the President of the United States, whom most Americans refer to as President Obama out of respect for the office if nothing else, what does she mean by "not allow?" Shouldn't we be addressing that by, say, passing this photo on to the FBI?

Taking her at her word, she spent four years as a POW in World War II. Now she wants to equate her (probably horrific) wartime experience with a *possible* tax increase to pay her Medicare bill?

"Morans" have no sense of proportion.

I like how she has FRFFDOM instead of FREEDOM. She Claims she was a Prisoner of War in 1941 to 1945 but from the look of her she doesn't match that. SO that's where the lying part comes in. PoW women isn't hard to believe or dismiss, but her time line sure as hell is.

Sansemi, frffdom is the new freedom. Everyone knows freedom is so 2001.

@ commenter #2: Not sure whether you meant generally, but in this specific case, a depiction of a somewhat stylized flag on a t-shirt is not desecration of the flag. Nor is it such on any other article of clothing. Desecration of the flag means defacing (writing or painting on it, sewing anything to it ) or destroying (cutting or tearing up) an actual flag to make something else out of it. They may be hypocrites in many areas, but mostly not on that issue.
