You know if you lined a few of these twits in front of a wall and gave them the options of “last words” or a “cigarette”, this foolishness would stop right there.
I now understand the concept of the fictional Madam Defarge and the Rabble of the French Revolution.
Don’t tell me what to say and I won’t tell you where to go.
Well....they can just kiss my American arse.
Always soemthing interesting in New Hamster.
Does the word university still stand?
I don’t want to be called, ‘old people.’
The phrase went out of vogue decades ago as being politically incorrect, insensitive, and rude!
It was replaced by the phrase “senior citizen,” not they claim this is culturally incorrect?
Phhhtttt....I cannot keep up anymore. I say what I mean and I mean what I say. Get over it.
Idiots. We call people who are citizens of Canada - Canadians. We call people who are citizens of Mexico - Mexicans. All of the countries in South America have their own name.And as far as I recall, there is no other country that has America in it’s name.
This American say FU to this bunch of freaks.
With Obama in office it has become offensive.
The U.S.A. is the only country in the western hemisphere that actually has the word “America” in its formal name.
I was told it was very offensive to the Canadians because they too are Americans.
Freak’n morons. We’re the only country in the hemisphere with “America” in the name.
Did you ask the person advising you what you should refer to yourself as then?
Yeah, but when politicians talk about benefits for Americans they may be hoodwinking us into believing USA citizens when their words could very well mean N., Central, S. Americans.
Something I’ve brought up on numerous occasions.
RE: Does the word university still stand?
It really is a PLURI-VERSITY more than anything else.
People actually sit around and think about what might offend other people.
So can we call black people negroes again?...
We now see the effects of not learning our history in grade school - Please let me refer you to:
Amerigo Vespucci - World Map
www.mapsofworld.com Cartography Medieval
Amerigo Vespucci is the undisputed leader among the medieval map makers in the world. He is well known as the man after whom America was named.
Please note South and Central was only added secondly and was specifically noted as SUCH to be distinct and separate from the original AMERICA.
