Confused about the true meaning of the holiday.. That we accept all walks of life in America and its a holiday for everyone even if you weren't born here. If your French you can still celebrate the fact you love freely in America... Duh

France helped us in the American revolution so we can celebrate this day. Maybe he needs a history lesson? You should ask him if the statue of liberty would be disrespectful just because France gave it to us to commemorate our independence.

The fact that France helped win our freedom, yes. But just the simple fact the statue came from the French, no

The Statue of Liberty is a great symbol of liberty and independence from Great Britain, with inscribed, the date of the American Declaration of Independence, July 4, 1776. And given by the French. So yea, it is pertinent. From Laboulaye: "If a monument should rise in the United States, as a memorial to their independence, I should think it only natural if it were built by united effort—a common work of both our nations."

Actually the Statue of Liberty was not only a gift from France, it was also designed by Gustav Eiffel. As in the same Gustav Eiffel who designed the Eiffel Tower.

#73 you've now posted TWELVE comments on this thread. Two questions. First - how is the FML flood control not blocking this? Second - your profile describes you as "chill" perhaps try that.

In regards to this post, the Statue of Liberty and the Eiffel Tower have nothing in common.

17, lets not get carried away here. Yes, the French certainly helped the colonists win, but the French are NOT the reason the USA is free today. They came to our aid, but it was our forefathers inherent and passionate need for freedom that gave us the freedoms that all Americans enjoy today.

I agree. We accept all walks of life in America so why would we hide what were proud of. Just reiterating my comment about how the manager seems a bit confused as to what the holiday really means

Are you expecting rude and condescending from yours truly or what here? Really, it's people like you on FML that are predictable and just say what people want to hear. And it does to show that dumb people just make other dumb people sound smart in this case because that comment was actually up-voted plenty of times before your claim of worthiness.
