  • Freedom gas

    Someone at the Department of Energy has been sniffing too much freedom gas...

    Forget Freedom Fries, the US has rolled out something even grander. Department of Energy (DOE) officials decided Wednesday to change the nomenclature of natural gas produced domestically to "freedom gas," made up of "molecules of U.S. freedom,” in a clear bid to up the nationalistic discourse.

      Each molecule of freedom gas contains one atom of liberty and four atoms of state-private sector corruption

                    "Alsatians" was a British adaptation, not American.

                    A Short History – The Role of German Shepherd and How Alsatians Evolved?

                    During the world war, both sides were employing the German Shepherd in their ranks to attack, surprise and outmaneuver their opponents. The German Shepherd being a big working dog with high intelligence and a natural propensity for training was considered to be of great value by the armed forces and was therefore hotly pursued. However, the British were loath to using the name “German Shepherd” as the Germans were their arch-enemy and they (the British) didn’t want to associate with the Germans in any way, at least symbolically in this case. So, they coined a new name for the German Shepherd, Alsatian, which somehow some people has come to refer to as a different dog breed.

                    The Americans, however, had no such hangovers and the name German Shepherd was widely used. Once the war was over, the British also decided that the name Alsatian has outlived its usefulness and went back to its real and trusted name, the German Shepherd. This short anecdote should be enough to clear all your lingering doubts about the German Shepherd and an Alsatian and prove that they are the same thing.

                      Well it seems you did follow our lead

                      In 1917, when America entered World War I, all things German became tabu. The American Kennel Club changed the name of the breed to the Shepherd Dog and the German Shepherd Dog Club of America became the Shepherd Dog Club of America

                        In Canada during WW1 in Berlin,Ontario they renamed themselves Kitchener out of fear of looking disloyal and haven’t switched back once the war ended.

                            Hmm.........selective quoting. Why did you quote out of context? From your link and the entire paragraph in full context:

                            The German Shepherd Dog Club of America's first specialty show was at Greenwich, Connecticut in 1915. In 1917, when America entered World War I, all things German became tabu. The American Kennel Club changed the name of the breed to the Shepherd Dog and the German Shepherd Dog Club of America became the Shepherd Dog Club of America. In England, the name of the breed was changed to the Alsatian.
