Natural Gas Is Now Called 'Freedom Gas,' According to the Department of Energy

S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



Jingoistic nationalism andpromoting fossil fuelsgo hand in hand for the Trump administration. But the Department of Energy took that connection to a new level on Tuesday with a press release touting natural gas as “freedom gas” full of—I feel stupid even typing this—“molecules of U.S. freedom.” Which I guess means we now definitively know the cost of freedom:According to the global market, it’s $2.64 per million BTUs as of Wednesday late morning.

Several sources are reporting this. I picked one at random. As far as stupid government shit goes this ranks up there with "Freedom Fries" & "Patriot Toast".

Do these people not remember the run-up to the Iraq invasion, and "Freedom Fries"?

Or are they so obvious that they don't realize the ridicule they are pouring on their own heads?

It's not funny. It's depressing.

Freedom fries goes well with a Liberty burger with American cheese and an  Independence Shake.

Never heard that one.
In 2003, when France opposed going to war in Iraq, the U.S. took the next logical step: its House of Representatives' cafeterias stopped serving French fries. They served "freedom fries" instead. Naturally, "French toast" became "freedom toast" as well. Republican Representatives Walter Jones and Bob Ney, who was the chairman of the House Administration Committee at the time and angered at "our so-called ally, France," made it happen. The change didn't have unanimous support. "Making Congress look even sillier than it sometimes looks would not be high on my priority list," said Democratic Representative Barney Frank, clearly lacking in both patriotism and knowledge of France's historic disdain for liberty. Well, the House fries ditched "freedom" in 2006 ... around the same time Ney, who pleaded guilty to corruption charges, lost his.
From the Urban Dictionary - 
patriot toast:
Eggs and milk cooked around bread. Similar to French Toast, but tastes better because it's American.
Fuck the French, eat Patriot Toast!
