I thought those were called skyscrapers.

Or Mount Rushmore.

What about the rest of the statue?

That's a lot of wood.

Ah, and the museum is dedicated to drawing parallels between the Revolutionary war and the Confederacy. How nice. I'd make a joke about Southern history books being written by the KKK, but we all know Real Americans can't read.

I thought you were making a funny

ftfa The pedestal could house a high-tech museum that would celebrate South Carolina's pivotal role in the Revolutionary War and the state's effort to secede.

We really ought to consider teaching history

ftfa "Wow," commented board member Harry Gregorie

Wow, indeed

I can see it already: rule 34. They would also make a great pair of halloween costumes.

How long before the french girl starts talking to a statue of a divorce lawyer?

I think Rule 35 has been covered:

A statue makes sense in New York. It was a well-known point of entry for countless immigrants for decades.

Charleston... well, I guess it's also the name of a dance?

Nice, Subby!

They could commemorate the South's role in slavery by having a statue of a black man in chains.

The Not So New Colossus
Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman man with a torch chain....

Why not put it off Miami, and make sure it's giving Cuba the finger to match our foreign policy with them?

"deally, Cook said, an island near Patriots Point could be built to house the monument."


-Yeahhhhh, OK we'll get right on that...

I'm pretty sure these people have no idea that the Statue of Liberty was a gift from the French.

This idea sounds gay.

Thank you, Subby. What a way to start the day!

Sounds great, but the U.S. doesn't have much in the way of liberty anymore, since they sold it all for guns, armed guards and jails. Better build it in Europe where true liberty still exists. I suggest Oslo or Stockholm.

If you think I am trolling, I am not. The U.S. is turning into a basket case before the world's eyes, and I find it rather sad.
 
2010-01-21 07:08:42 AM  
I blame the lack of gender for words on the english language. Everyone knows "liberty" is female (so is "erection")
 
2010-01-21 07:13:09 AM  
We didn't trade liberty for guns armed guards and jails, we gave our rights away to not offend any of those fleeing masses. this is America, we make our own guns. In fact, guns are probably one of the only things we haven't outsourced yet.

While I agree to the sad state the United States is, Ikahoshi, it is quite clear that you are two things:
1: liberal
2: an asshat,

I don't hate liberals, it's just that there's plenty of asshats making noise that make bad names for the other liberals.

I just awoke with a massive errection, so I am getting a kick and also fapping to mreuther's post. Ah geez, you'd better believe that is hot.

Fap fap fap

But, but, but, how can that b-b-b-be? B-b-b-bush is no longer prezident and our new prez, the Annointed One, went on his Magical Apology Tour last year. Oh, boo-ho, oh noes!!!

I can see it now...

Bring me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses...

And if they are hot, let me fark them...

I think I'd rather have some REAL liberty before another statue gets put up.
 
2010-01-21 08:00:22 AM  
Hmm, a quick and dirty search shows that Charleston was actually the site of the greatest American *defeat* during the Revolutionary War. WIth that in mind, perhaps it would be more apropos to move the French gift, Lady Liberty down to Charleston. I am still trying to figure out how it was pivotal, unless the modern-day Charlestonians still have sympathies for the British Crown...

I could get behind that.

No, for the simple reason that a French gigolo would model for it (if history is any precedent).
 
2010-01-21 08:26:53 AM  
Hey, I'll bet more immigrants came to America through Charleston than Ellis Island.

They packed them in pretty tight in those days.

I'm sure the right wing will think this is an utterly fantastic idea, but not it a gay way... really not that way at all... hey they have wives and kids so that proves it!

I think, when they refer to SC's role in the Revolution, they're mostly talking about Cowpens.

Just wondering, do they have actual specs on the statue?

How wide will its stance be?
 
2010-01-21 08:56:42 AM  
For some reason, when you mention wide stance it makes me think of this, specifically the song number:

Use chalk, and the erection would cost a lot less.

So is California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas.

That, in turn, would make the property at Patriots Point more valuable.

people used to do this sort of thing just because it was awesome
 
2010-01-21 09:36:57 AM  
Let's see, original Statue of Liberty: gift from the French to celebrate all that was wonderful about America and the friendly relations between our nations.

New Statue of Liberty: to drive up property values for real estate development and bring in tourists.

I think we insist that the new one follow the tradition of the old one. No tax dollars used, the US citizens hold fundraisers to pay for the base and this asshat needs to find another country to pony up for building the statue. He should be dead before they even have enough to pay for the Environmental Impact Study for building the island.
