Just What Does ‘American’ Mean?
Anything Pertaining to America?
A Citizen Here?
Something Produced Here?
OH - REALLY?
Let’s Take a ‘Look-See’ ...
Is Not ‘The Queen’s English’ the Basis?
Pick up Any Dictionary or Thesaurus ...
Ever Notice the Vast Myriads of Words
With a Root in Latin?
Many Others are from: Greek, French, Spanish,
Indian (American), and/or Other Languages.
Iowa - Mississippi - Missouri - Illinois -
Minnesota - Alabama - Oklahoma -
And Other States were Originally Indian!
Many Cities, Towns, Rivers, Mountains ... Indian!
How about ‘American’ Products?
Some Cars, Refrigerators, Washers, Dryers,
Tools, Furniture, Planes, Clothes,
Are Still Manufactured Here ... BUT ...
My God - How Many, Many Are Imports?
Our So-Called ‘American Corporations’ -
Sold Us Out Many Years Ago!
From Industry to Service - Another Revolution?
A Citizen Here?
Once Upon a Time Maybe a Majority of Naturals ...
But, Pray Tell - What Stock Were They From?
English, French, Canadian, Irish, Scottish,
Dutch, German, Portuguese, African, Spanish, Mexican ...
Ever Hear of ‘Montezuma’s Revenge?’
Look it up in your ‘Funk & Wagnall’s’ ...
“The Melting Pot of The World”
We Opened Our Doors to Everyone:
Chinese, Taiwanese, Japanese, Thai, Filipino, Cuban,
Russian, Polish, Slovakian, Arabian, Australian,
Bohemian, Polynesian, Caribbean, Asian, Hawaiian,
Hebrews (Jews) - Unsure of Proper Designation ...
Swedish, Danish, Norse, Finnish ...
And On, And On, and On ...
Millions Upon Millions Now ...
Including ‘Naturalized’ Citizens ...
As Well As ‘Illegal Aliens’...
Talk About ‘Stew’ Ingredients!
What Is American?
Remember The Old Commercial?
“Motherhood, Apple Pie, and Chevrolet!”
Let’s See Now ...
The Calendar Which We Still Use Now Every Day -
Is a Twelve-Month Solar Calendar -
Created by Julius Caesar in 46 BC -
Called the Julian Calendar ...
It Super-Ceded the Former Roman Ten-Month Lunar One ...
Calends or Kalends = The First Day of the Month -
In the Ancient Roman Calendar!
How About ‘Our’ Numbering System?
Is IT American?
Is IT From ‘The Count’ on Sesame Street?
Gim’me a Big ‘Hell NO!’
They are ARABIAN Numerals!
Now That You Are So Much-More-Better Informed ...
How DO You Feel?
Like An ‘All-American’ HERO?
Or Rather ...
Like An ‘All-American’ HEEL?
I’m Gon’na Relax Now ...
In My AMERICAN Manufactured Mobile Home ...
Of Some Twenty-Three Plus Years of Age ...
Read an AMERICAN Novel about FATHERHOOD ...
Chomp Down a Big Slice of CHERRY PIE ...
And Admire My AMERICAN Car ...
Sitting in The Driveway - A FORD!
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
GOD BLESS AMERICANS!
AND ALL THE ..#$^*(&%#. IMMIGRANTS TOO!

|I had pizza for lunch.... allegedly an American invention washed down with a Bud, a formerly American product now foreign owned. Being as I'm on a health kick I'm having Nathan's hotdogs for supper with Lays potato chips as a backup. I thought about a French dip but there are so many already. Patrick|

|According to my Native American spouse, you and I are still Illegal Aliens, Cuz. She says that we Europeans invaded her peoples' lands, had no visas or passports to do so, were not invited, and didn't speak her language.
Sound Familiar? I still sleep with one eye open and many loyal dogs by my side; she just might go off the deep end one night and scalp me in her sleep!
