in case you guys haven't heard at congress they remnamed the French Fries, Freedom Fries.

this is bull****, this is the exact same racism that was rampant throughout the first world war when Sauerkraut was called liberty cabbage and so on. have we regressed that far?

we aren't even at war with france, we are just scapegoating them because of their anti-war stance. if you know anything about history or read the book 1984, one of the main ways to rally the populus for war is to dehumanize and demonize the enenmy, going back the World War 1 example i gave.

it's scary, that this kind of thing happened, especially at Congress itself. whether you believe in the war or not, this kind of act is intolerable. it may seem like a small thing, but it can have serious effects, it certainly won't do us any favors in france.
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.

Freedom fries are about the goofiest goddamned thing I've heard of in a while. Will we be Freedom Kissing next? The Republican controlled Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches in this country scares the living sh*t out of me. 2004 cannot come fast enough because we need to get that warmonger asshole out of office.....Although I was rather looking forward to driving around in my hydrogen powered car.

Like the guy who was arrested for wearing a "Give peace a chance" Tee shirt in New York ? So much for the bill of rights and freedom of speech !

What next, an end to abortion, the reinstatement of slavery ?

I’m looking at the clock and the hands are sailing backwards !

There is also a american newspaper article that says "Sissy's" and has 2 mountiees in the picture. Basically calling Canada sissy's because we are a peace keeping country and can not support more to the terriost war more then we all ready have. Meanwhile, i dont think U.S.A. minded when we sent every firefighter we had at 911 across the boarder to help out or when american fighter jets droped a bomb on Canadian soldiers in afganistan killing several soldiers who were running war drills.

I wouldnt call the freedom fries thing racism, but its very childish - very republican

Heres my question - why are the US allowed have nuclear weapons but the Iraqis cant? I realise the US are "peacekeepers" or whatever and Iraq is run by an evil nut - but surely its hypocrisy at its most obvious...like most aspects of this war

You're really mean congress "changed"(the quotes are mine,if you didn't name it,how are you going to rename it?)the name of fries(btw,how often do you actually call them "french fries"?Me,it's normally chipo-local slang for chips-or plain fries)just coz France isn't backing the war against Iraq?!?!??!?!?!?!?
That's beyond unbelievable.
You kinda begin to question their ability to make the right call,even with regard to the war and all that.
I used to think Africa was the only place we had stupid politicians.
Jeez!

Personally i dont' care what congress call's them, they're a bunch of bigotted,zenophobic fascists. More importantly, eat them with garlic mayonaise (chips that is.. not republicans).
If I couldn't laugh at myself how could I laugh at someone less ridiculous?
