The whole "freedom fries" thing just strikes me as encredibly ignorant and childish. Also, boycotting certain products often harms innocent people. We're boycotting people's products, not a product the government made. You know, what if your products were boycotted because your government did something that didn't represent you? What if the trend follows that the French starts boycotting american goods? And Joe farmer, who wanted no part of this to begin with, is suddenly hurt financially. It's just negativity feeding off of negativity, and we need as much love, light, and understanding as possible in these dark times.

This really makes me mad. It's childish and totally inappropriate for my Congress to act like this. I'm going to buy some French cheese, French vanilla ice cream and stop at the local patisserie for some French pastries.
What with Congress acting like this, my government is really starting to look like a bad joke.

Sure, you can afford to. After all you live in a secure, SUPERSIZED country. Which is fine by me, no offense there.

I agree with anitram there... this is where your tax dollars go...

OK, it was already a bad joke, now it's even worse with this stupid "freedom fries" thing. I'm sorry, I've totally lost my temper over this. Good grief, there's a better way to spit out your guts on Jacques Chirac if that's what you want to do. Write irate e-mails to the French Embassy or whatever. This stuff is so stupid.

Actually, I didn't imply it. I said it. If I implied it, it would have been much more subtle.

But chill out. That was in the other thread. GIve peace a chance and let me eat my fries.

Screaming Flower, whats the point of calling them Freedom Fries instead of French Fries? My point, if you want one, is that this issue is boring shit.

And what do you mean by trolling? If I am offended by a personal statement, I do say so on FYM in whatever thread instead of nerving the mods, preferrably in a joke thread like that one.
