    What say you?
    How exactly does it attract "illegal immigrants"?

    Why is it being a gift from the people of France, allies of the US since 1776 a bad thing?

    What are American values and how have they changed since your ancestors came to this continent?

    It sounds much more like the plight of illegal immigrants seeking refuge. Just saying.
    You mean it sounds like the people who built this great nation from the rail ways to the roads to the skyscrapers. Not to mention those that worked the farms etc..... You ever been to the Statue? My guess is the people of NY and NJ would not be pleased, Republican or Democrat.

    Nothing to do with the topic but what the heck do you think the US government should do about someone arrested in Mexico? You can't be thinking that US laws should apply to US citizens abroad or that Americans should get a pass on Mexican laws, can you? Or that his job should make a difference? Hell, I'm nearly agreeing with you to the extent that maybe the Canadian government should send special forces to bust Canadians out of death row in American prisons. That sound alright to you?

    No for the following reasons.

    1) Not near as much as home depot.

    2)It's been over a century and I haven't once seen a pit hair and she never went back to France, not even to see her sister.

    3) Hot women in flowing gowns? Would it help is she put on some weight?

    Although it would fetch a hefty sum at the scrap yard, probably best to leave the national symbol of "freedom" where it stands. People who complain so bitterly of immigrants should take a crash course in American history. America was founded as a melting pot of immigrants to begin with. Every American (except native American indians), by default, can trace their family history to find their ancestor who first came here as an immigrant. Anybody before that would be part of the wave of people who first got here, saw that there were inhabitants, realized that guns were better than bows and arrows, and basically slaughtered any natives who wouldn't sell them the land for a few beaver skins.
    There are none so blind as those who choose not to see....

    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Also thus thread is an expert piece of trolling. So many people were caught
