Reading your posts is like reading listening to someone who had zero knowledge of the subject, but became an expert in less than ten minutes on Google.

You should stuff it and quit putting words in my mouth. You are not worth any more response. You love to waste other people's time with your inane straining at gnats, deflections, pivots, and bullshit.

You define why lawyers are universally reviled.

Just in case anyone is wondering, Paine's poem had nothing to do with the Statue of Liberty and neither did the other hundreds of world regarding the same subject.

That's ironic .
You use Google as much or more than any poster here , the difference is , you quote mine them and doctor them up to look like your own work.

I hope you don't think you're convincing anyone with that same old tired bullshit argument about "the google". Get a clue and understand that you are not the sole arbiter of truth, nor in fact do you ever actually post the truth. So pardon all of us "googlers" as you would prefer us to be thought of, but are in reality not, for ignoring your repetitive and incorrect accusations that everyone but you, is completely uninformed about very easy and accessible things to be informed on. I think you may just be Bannon yourself! You are cut from the same cloth for certain. Which is, ill informed, self hating, envious and highly unattractive, and wishing he could punish the world for not being what he thinks he should be.

Oh really? The symbol of Liberty wasn't referred to by the colonists in reference to being controlled by a Monarch? Thomas Paine was not directly referring to her when he said the Goddess of Liberty? What the hell are you talking about now? The statue is based upon the goddess he and other colonists referenced in the battle for our freedom from England. Connect the dots asshat.

In a chariot of light, from the regions of the day,
The Goddess of Liberty came,

Ten thousand celestials directed her way,
And hither conducted the dame.
A fair budding branch from the gardens above,
Where millions with millions agree,
She brought in her hand as a pledge of her love,
And the plant she named Liberty Tree.

The celestial exotic stuck deep in the ground,
Like a native it flourished and bore;
The fame of its fruit drew the nations around,
To seek out this peaceable shore
.
Unmindful of names or distinctions they came,
For freemen like brothers agree;
With one spirit endued, they one friendship pursued,
And their temple was Liberty Tree
.

Beneath this fair tree, like the patriarchs of old,
Their bread in contentment they ate,
Unvexed with the troubles of silver or gold,
The cares of the grand and the great.
With timber and tar they Old England supplied,
And supported her power on the sea;
Her battles they fought, without getting a groat,
For the honor of Liberty Tree.

But hear, O ye swains (’tis a tale most profane),
How all the tyrannical powers,
Kings, Commons and Lords, are uniting amain
To cut down this guardian of ours.
From the East to the West blow the trumpet to arms,
Thro’ the land let the sound of it flee;
Let the far and the near all unite with a cheer,
In defense of our Liberty Tree
Thomas Paine

I still say she is a modern day portrayal of Athena. Athena was the god of war and wisdom and she is carrying a book and wearing a spiked hat.
