    I was reading where some persons in Washington want to change the name of "French Fries" & "French Toast to "Freedom Fries" & "Freedom Toast". How absurd & can you get!

    Since this rather idiotic, childish, and ridiculous change HAS been made in the House cafeterias, is flame bait, and was made by politicians, I expected, and hoped no one would post about it. Oh well.

    Maybe it'll be shut down before it turns into a French hunt.

    During World War II, hamburgers became "liberty steak" and sauerkraut was "liberty cabbage".

    I'm certainly not the one making a joke out of it. My disdain for this narrow minded move by our Washington politicians is serious. Can we afford to have this sort of thinking become the norm? I think not.

    So are they going to send the Statue of Liberty back? She is the biggest French chick in this country.

    If I remember correctly French Fries were actually invented in Belgium and not even in France?

    I think that its ridiculous and very narrow minded. [​IMG]

    I would be very upset if those chuckle heads claimed to be representing me. It was a photo op, nothing else. I guess there are no other serious issues to work on in Washington these days [​IMG]

    Its pathetic and embarrassing. I know not much is expected of our elected officials but can't we at least get some adults into congress instead of pouty children. There's even worse some loon is going to introduce a bill to allow the digging up of the graves of US war dead in Normandy...

    Part of the French toast legend is that it's named after a tavern owner from Albany, NY named Joseph French.

    Thus, we should try these two for expressing "unpatriotic" opinions after the new alien and sedition acts pass. [​IMG]
