    When the last President of that country first talked about "making America great again", my kid (than 15) proposed to rename the country from USA to USHNA, i.e. "The United States of Half of North America" - just to remind him and other people that e.g. Brazil and Mexico are a part of America, too... and why would you build a wall across that which you want to make great again?

    AMERICA is a huge continent, not a country. US, Or United States, or USA (United States Of America) is a country located in the north of the Amercian continent. American continent is divided in 3: north, central and south. In north America, we have also Canada and Alaska. I don't understand why people say: Im going to travel to America (when actually they are going to US). There are many countries in America! (which is a continent, not a country).

    "Fredonia" (for the unaware) was actually considered by a minority of Americans wanting to change the name of the country for a long time, until it was turned into a name of mockery by opponents and became a byword for absurd hyperpatriotism, as well as just a bunch of regular placenames-I guess there's more than one town called Fredonia in this country, strangely. My first exposure to the word was, naturally, the Marx Brothers movie _Duck Soup._

    As a Oregonian, I don't think there is a single point in my life of nearly 30 years I have ever referred to the US as America. The US/US is the go to always for me, with the uncommon use of USA/The USA. I never myself understood why the hell this nation wound up calling itself America when there is two continents and a subcontinent all with that title. But it's about as US as you can get with that massive arrogance haha. Also, it's akin to calling Native Americans "Indians" - the only Indians around are from India, so when people say that I always have to ask if they're referring to "Indian Indians" or Native Indians, which Indian Indian is the perfect way to show how goddamn stupid that is in the first place.

    Hey. You know joke are funny when you understand them. So just so you know I find your talk confusing. I know you were joking but joke is built upon common sense, things we both know. So people who have not studied Your History is totally not for them because of the way you say jokes like everybody know otherwise.. things in history books are not even accurate in the first place to be made a joking or history as you retell should not de mixed with unnecessary shinanegans because you were not there in the first place. You did not experience it for you to be making a joke that can mislead us who do not study your History. Then you talk so fast and words somehow sound incomprehensible.. it does not sound clear to me.
