    Agreed that the fuss over the fries may be a little silly.

    However, Mrs. Runner and I will be expressing our dissatisfaction with our wallet. Our money will go to purchase fine American wines with a few Australian and even Spanish wines thrown in occasionally. The west coast provides us all the fine wine options we need and under the circumstances we are happy to Buy American.
    Cheers,

    Please also consider the fine Sangioveses and Chiantis from Italy, and remember that the best thing to accompany any wine is Wisconsin cheese!

    Wisconsin cheese is all that and California wine is great as well BUT I still like to vary my purchases and there are french cheeses and wine that I really like and will continue to buy.

    There are some great Chilean wines.

    Attention: French Canadians will now be referred to as "Freedom Canadians"

    I don't like the idea of the House of Reps. cafeteria changing the name. Some diner owner can do whatever he wants but our government shouldn't be this babyish. If things are French then they're French (I know French fries aren't). We didn't play this game with our worst enemies in WWII, or the Soviet Union. I know no one is making me say "freedom fries," but it just reminds me of some weird governmental speech control. We've got bigger problems than the French.

    There is a town in North Ontario (sticky song of the day now) called Swastika...I think they tried to rename it at some point (Armstrong?), but the new name didn't catch on.

    Don't forget that Kitchener was changed from New Berlin during WWII.

    As for French Canadians, we can call them Quebecois, Acadians, Metis, and then we could get into the racial slurs...

    I love the congressman who says this is a way of showing our displeasure to our "So called ally, France". So Called? I just can't get over how childish this all is. Next we'll start a rumor that France is sleeping around with the football team, and then they'll call us period-face. sigh.

    OK, I think we know where most of us stand on this issue.

    Anyone think Redsfan did it?
    When Jesus said "love your enemies", he probably didn't mean kill them.

    Quebecis and Acadians come from different stock. There are a lot of Acadians who live in Northern Maine not forgetting the Acadians who moved to Lousiana i. e. cajuns.

    Not really...Acadians are French who settled in the maritimes. They were the first to be conquered by the British - can't remember the date. Cajuns are Acadians that were forcibly deported (they didn' just "move") by the British after the fall of Nova Scotia. Quebecois are French who settled in Quebec (New France) which fell to the British in 1759.

    Thanks for the clarification. I do know that their versions of French are quite different. A friend of mine from Northern Maine went to Quebec and had to converse in English because his Acadian French couldn't be understood. I thought they were of an older stock. Learn something every day.

    some of the same french familes were devided and moved to the lowlands of SC, gulah is still widely spoken in that area and its a mix of french, english and african. as far as genetics goes cajuns in NO, Charlston and Nova Scotia are directly related.

    hehe knows this cos dad is from Beauford SC and sounds just like Justin Wilson
