    • steven

      Maybe but another bad day was when "they" created so much divisiveness between all of us that we can no longer get anything done.

            "As agreed in an 1834 compact between New York and New Jersey that set the state border at the bay's midpoint, the original islands remain New York territory despite their location on the New Jersey side of the state line. Land created by reclamation at Ellis is New Jersey territory"

            Ellis Island is extremely square.

    A breathtaking sight. I'll never forget seeing Lady Liberty for the first time, then getting to look out from her crown later that day. Amazing.

    Seeing these pictures of Lady Liberty and thinking about all she represents, this makes me cry. With today's ruling from the Supreme Court, allowing the federal gov't to fine us for NOT doing something, our liberties are gone. They may pass a law to force us to do ANYTHING and if we don't comply, they may fine us or otherwise punish us. Does no one else see the HUGE danger in this, far beyond anything related to health care?!?!

    • abc

      nope

      • Poke4Life

        That's because you are a fool. Our government was designed to be as limited as possible, not to find new and ever inventive ways of controlling the lives of its citizens. A government that has the right to tell you how to live and what to buy has more power than is necessary and is therefore dangerous. Don't believe me? Take a look at England. Government health care, firearms banned, powerless citizens = a dying country!!

        • Owen Smithers

          And at the very most, let the states do things like that if they feel it's necessary (as is fully constitution). At least that way we remain free to move to another state if we don't like it. Or propose a constitution amendment that required big majorities and ratification by most of the states. That ensures the biggest buy-in and support. We must quit giving away our liberties so easily. They are SO hard to gain back once lost.

      • Owen Smithers

        How about, you must buy an assault rifle and take fire arms training or you'll be fined? Or, you must attend church every Sunday? Or, you must wear a necktie to work? It could be anything, because now a precedent has been set that the taxing authority of the federal government can be used to fine you for something you chose NOT to do, rather than only an affirmative actiion. They can tell you to do anything or you'll be punished.

      I loves me some healthcare.

      What are you talking about? We have been getting fined for NOT paying taxes for decades. This is no different. In California we get fined for NOT having car insurance, for NOT wearing a helmet and even for NOT registering a dog. In the 70s we got fined for not serving after we got drafted. I see nothing wrong taxing people for taking care of them, we pay for it already. Have you not thought about why healthcare is so expensive, it's because we pay for fat people and smoker's health problems. At least this way everyone helps out. If you have something against being forced to do something you don't want to do, don't pay taxes and see what happens.

      • Owen Smithers

        Firstly, You must pay taxes AFTER you engage in activity (working, driving, owning a dog), whereas this now applies if you do absolutely nothing – except exist. If they have that power, there is nothing the government cannot do to you, and you cannot escape it, unless you leave the country.
        Secondly, you're confusing the power states have vs. the power the federal government has. The federal government has a very limited list of constitution powers. All others are reserved to the state or the people themselves. If we want to change that, we can amend the constitution. There are procedures for that and it's been done several times.
        Thirdly, I would argue that healthcare is so expensive precisely because government has gotten so involved in it. They create laws saying everyone must be treated at a hospital, so people go to the ER and then don't pay. Doctors took care of people before those laws existed and were paid either by freely-donated-to charities, or religious institutions, or other, non-mandatory means.

    "Welcome to the Statue of Liberty. The Statue is a gift from French citizens and has come to symbolize hope for naked women everywhere….BOCCE BALLS!"

    She's a Jersey girl 🙂

    If you guys are in NY, take the train down to NJ and I'll give you rides in the Time Machine.

  • FuckThisShit

    Can't get inside her anymore….does that mean we're gonna stop the raping of liberty?

  • AnthonySyl

    liberty island is technically located in NJ waters

  • geographer

    Here's text from the National Park Service Web site:

    Statue of Liberty Geography
    Is the Statue in New York or New Jersey? The Statue of Liberty is on Liberty Island, federal property administered by the National Park Service, located within the territorial jurisdiction of the State of New York. http://www.nps.gov/stli/faqs.htm

  • Evil Dung Beetle

    I would love to see a color picture of her completed before the patina set in. As much of a symbol she is with the green color, I think it'd be cool if they buffed her up and layed down a clear coat.

    • sandy astroglide

      I'd buff her up and give her a clear coat.

    My Favs.

    I can't wait to get back to the states (NJ where home is) and see her and the new tower (which is almost finished!!!!)

  • Zappers

    This is a sad day when our gov can pull the wool over this great nation and call it a benifet to all, when even the supreme (joke) court says it is ok, because it is another form of tax… sad, sad, sad.

  • rcorrino

    What this lady stood for was once a dream. Then it became a reality, now it is just a memory.

    As the shine from her once glorious skin has faded, so have out liberties. Taken by the selfsame people who promised her they will defend it.

    The government for the people and by the people has perished from this earth.

    • Owen Smithers

      And I think if we are not destroyed from the outside, because of the rot inside, we are destined to fight another civil war. This one between those who understand and cherish the fragile gift of liberty, even with all its struggles and difficulties, versus those who wish only for control and take from others. Who is John Galt?

      rcorrino, I look proudly forward to standing with you fighting, once again, for men to be free. And I'll be so very sorry if it has to come to that. But I will not willing abdicate my rights and step down into a ditch to be shot in the back.

    WHAT!?! Not one comment about these increidable photos! I have saved at least 10 to use a wallpaper.

  • freddy boy

    For years now I've heard the French lambasted because they chose not to support one of our many wars. I can forgive the French a lot for helping us gain the freedom which now allows us to lambast her.
