Aw, don't be mad at the Froggies...they're just making room for the Nazi flag that they wish they still lived under.

The frogs don't deserve to have an American flag fly on their soil.

you done good putting this post up. The museum will be hearing from me.

I was just in New Orleans at the D-Day Museum. I was in tears several times walking through the huge, detailed displays. There is a movie about Normandy and about the battle in the Pacific.

The parallels between that war and this one are staggering. I saw the price of appeasment, and the men who were willing to go where their country sent them. I saw footage of men from Iowa who had hardly seen an ocean before crammed into battleships and sent to Normandy where they were only too happy to get shot at on French beach if it meant getting off that ship!

The D-Day museum in New Orleans pays tribute to the Free French who helped the Allies. Also, just down the street there is a "Napoleon's France and Jefferson's America" exhibit at the Museum of Art celebrating Franco-American relations in the Revolution in celebration of the 100th anniversary of the Louisiana Purchase(this year).

How far things have come. Where do the French get off forgetting their own history? Especially since we seem to remember...

Seems a lot of Americans have been occupying that ground there for about 60 years. For some reason, the words "adverse possession" come to mind.

Oh dear. I guess we should have left those children in that Bagdad prison just for the French.
The French were nice enough to send us lady liberty (obviously they didn't want her). We should return the favor and send them what they like: PLASTIC SHREDDERS FOR EVERYONE!

The French certainly suck for forgetting their history, but it's not like we aren't providing a great example for that these days, what with all the new PC education, whiteness studies, Diane Ravitch running amok, etc, etc, etc.

Bloody good stuff. Jolly well done. Brilliant blog all round in fact. I'm excruciatingly jealous.

Michele, you are good!

this is great. i did my part to melt their servers and posted my little missive on my page just to be clear. thanks for collecting this together in one spot so i could get really mad.

Please take another look at the Dissident Frogrman's site. He's backed off the interpretation you're suggesting.
