But really...

We American's don't only eat red meat, or absolutely adore Texas, or always vote for George Bush. American is such an umbrella term that can never describe the different intricacies and nuances of some of the great individuals who are very proud to call themselves Americans.

In all honesty we may continually forget about other countries' needs in our haste to establish ourselves as a country, and we may be slow on the uptake when it comes to social progress, but when all is said and done America was founded on the ideals of liberty and happiness. We have just outgrown our meager beginnings and like a young child who suddenly hits puberty are having trouble in our new skin and place in the world.

We are reasonable. We are proud. But above all, we are human beings, much like every other human on this Earth.

However, we do still believe in Manifest Destiny.

Our favorite state


Hands down.

A handy guide to foreigners

Hello foreigners,

As I've met with several of you over the past year at various bars and American institutions like Starbucks, Subway and Chipotle, I've found it strange that most of you don't have an accurate portrayal of us Americans. So I'm starting this blog up to let all of you know exactly what America stands for.

Obviously, I am THE American stereotype... so one look at this blog will help you understand what America is all about. Look here to learn, follow, and to expel those horrible myths about "Stupid Americans", "Dumb Americans" or, possibly worse, "Rush Limbaugh."

One stop America... This blog.
