FREEDOM FRIES

Freedom fries is a political euphemism for French fries in the United States. The term came to prominence in 2003 when the then Republican Chairman of the Committee on House Administration, Bob Ney, renamed the menu item in three Congressional cafeterias in response to France’s opposition to the proposed invasion of Iraq.

Although originally supported with several restaurants changing their menus as well, the term fell out of use due to declining support for the Iraq War.

Following Ney’s resignation as Chairman, it was quietly reverted.

Something to think about … “American Culture & Values”!!

Individuality

Privacy

Equality

U.S. Americans uphold the ideal that everyone “is created equal” and has the same rights. This includes women as well as men of all ethnic and cultural groups living in the U.S. There are even laws that protect this “right to equality” in its various forms.

The general lack of deference to people in authority is one example of equality. Titles, such as “sir” and “madam” are seldom used. Managers, directors, presidents and even university instructors are often addressed by their first or given name.

Time

Informality

Achievement and Hard Work/Play

Direct and Assertive

Looking to the Future and to Change
