    Other: demolition it and replace it with the same Statue of Liberty but with a BMI of 30, type II diabetes and watching American Housewives of Alabama.

    How about French Toast, who invented that?

    I did a little snooping and it looks like the Romans may have kicked off the idea.

    Here's a short paragraph that explains exactly that:

    American soldiers stationed in Belgium were first introduced to french fries during World War I. As the official language of the Belgian army was French, soldiers nicknamed the delicious fried potatoes “french fries.” The name stuck, and decades later we’re still giving credit to the wrong country.

    Like everything else, this too was apparently America's fault.

    I actually don't doubt that. I have a friend who'd love to live there and I don't blame y'all for saying no.

    I exercise my liberty to vote no...but I do think we need to add our current president to Mt. Rushmore...Should America tear down the Statue of Liberty?-mt-_rushmore_early_morning-jpg
    Liberalism—dividing up the EARNED wealth of honest, hard working and ingenious AMERICANS and giving it to the leeches who would rather waste their worthless lives living off the government teat.

    If those GI's had met Dutch speaking Belgians I guess McDonald's would be frying and selling Dutch fries now, eh?
