  • And we'd bribe 'em right back with nukes. Big honking NUKES!!

  • Nope, he'd bribe the needy voters with free world maps.

  • If anyone could do it, we could. The United States: bully of the world. I think we'd have success everywhere but Venezuela, and eventually even Chavez would cave under our might. Bwahaha.

  • Hmm...that could work. *strokes chin*

    July 24, 2007

  • R, that's too much work. All we have to do is rename the continents.

  • Okay, how about this: We make all the other countries in the Americas change their names, and....

    No, never mind.

  • Sounds like something from Gulliver's Travels. That would make sense to the five of us who actually know where the word "America" comes from. ;-)

  • *looking around* Who, me?

    I have it: Vespuccians. We'll call ourselves Vespuccians. Perfect.

  • How about Stater? ;-)

    July 24, 2007

  • U, think of the scorn that would be heaped upon us if we were to call ourselves that. Leave bad enough alone!

    July 24, 2007

  • Got any better ideas, smart guy?

    ...besides, you know, what we have now.

    July 24, 2007

  • If we call ourselves this, I'm moving!

    July 24, 2007

  • Ahh, I confess I don't really care. I'm just a selfish American, anyway. :-)

    I got in a mild dispute in high school with one of my friends who was from Honduras. He very passionately argued that he was an American, and I very coldly argued that he was not.

  • I did mean to say also I agree with you than American is a misleading description, although it seems to be deeply rooted now!

  • The duck is a noble creature, and appears all the more so when it's sitting and you can't see those goofy webbed feet.

    July 24, 2007

  • Only if we want to make ourselves sitting ducks. ;-)

  • My recommendation for the new name by which citizens of the United States refer to themselves. Because American can be confusing, and should refer to anyone who lives in the Americas, which encompass much more than just the USA. Who's with me?
