look up any word, like rule of three:
 
2.
Probablly the most bashed on country in the world.
Things you should know:

1. Yes, we are aware the term "American" can be used for anyone living in North or South America. The term "British" can be used for someone from Scottland, Ireland, or England. What else do you want us to call ourselves, United-Statesians? Besides, I don't see you calling people from Brazil or Argentina or Cuba American anyways. Why should we?

2. Yes, we are aware our President shows serious signs of mental retardation. All goverments have their problems.

3. We're not stupid. We don't go around speaking "American", laughing at all other "American" speaking countries thinking they stole the idea from us.

4. We're not all crazy extremists or blind conservatives.

5. Your country probally produces almost as much pollution as ours, and seeing as the US is about 3,718,695 cm2 (9,631,420 km2; gasp! an American knowing about the metric system? unheard of!) large and has 302,431,000 citizens, we're not doing that bad.

6. Celsuis- Farheniet, Meters- feet, Pounds- killograms. Gallons- liters. We use both you know.

7. We don't hate all Canadians, Brits, Cubans, and Japaneese people. We don't think all Muslims are terrorists. No matter what Bush says, we most definitely don't eat "freedom fries". We don't all support Iraq. We don't think Pakistan is in Africa.

8. Just because we can't trace our ancestors in America back for 329 years, it doesn't mean we love our country less.

9. Patrioism is never a bad thing. Even if you lived in the crappiest country in the world, it's still your country.

10. No, we don't think everyone in the world celbrates July Fourth with us.

11. We don't eat McDonald's everyday or drive five cars.

12. Not everyone speaks like their from Texas. There are forty-nine other states you know.

13. We don't think we're better than you.

14. Lastly, half the people that bash us are allies with us. Our country has relations in more than half the world. Most likely, we're best friends.
British: "They're bloody pricks too. Look at Bush."

French: "Look at Iraq. What a dumb mistake."

American: "Dude, we know our president's an ass."

Any person from the Americas but usually means someone from the U.S.
Contrary to the popular opinion of other countries (France,England, ect.) we are not all fat, stupid, arrogant, and violent. We still have the leading education system in the world, we are well aware that 1/3 of the world hates us and are not war mongers. If people want to criticize us for stereo typing they should at least avoid using stereo types in their argument. True we do have a obesity problem because of a high fat diet with little exercise to compensate. This is mostly because are nation is spread out across a vast distance and drive everywhere because of that.We are not violent rednecks our country has only fought wars when we believed necessary for the security of our citizens. Which if you look at the middle east and Europe where pretty calm. Also most of you owe your freedom to the U.S. for saving you in world war 2. So next time you say Americans are stupid, dum, violent, and arrogant remember we are leading in education, we saved many countries from being taken over by Nazi Germany. Also we are not all monolingual, all states now require 2 years of the same language to graduate and unlike other countries that require you to learn the native language before getting citizen ship the U.S. does not, in fact we don't even have an official language.

P.S. it's not arrogant to defend you country from slander.
Ese americano es muy amable, inteligente y tiene un excelente español.
For those you who aren't Bilingual maybe you should quit mocking the U.S. and learn some Spanish so you can translate that.

An American is someone who lives in North America , Central America, And South America

North Americans: Canada,the USA, Mexico, and all the little contries consisting of central america

South Americans: People who live in the continent of south america

When People think of America, they just think of the united states, but really America is just the huge continent. The huge continent is called " The America's" and 953,565,000 live here. About 300,000,000 ppl live in the usa

America is a great place, The majority of us are educated, and are a normal weight.
ignorant person: I hate Americans because they are all gross and dumb

Smart American: You do realize that its not just the united states right? And have you met every one from the America's? No you havent... so shut your dumb ignorant mouth because listening to you is killing my brain cells.

A citizen of a country in which "freedom" has been stressed to too much of an extent for far too long.

Yes, the word "American" unfortunately is commonly correctly defined as "an ignorant, bigoted, gluttonous prick".

Those Americans who have exploited the word "freedom" are an embarrassment to say the least. I'm an American and I must say I'm humiliated on a day-to-day basis by my fellow citizens' ignorance, but to those of you who are reading this as a non-American citizen, please know we're not all the same.

Anyone who is well educated in world history, however, surely knows of mistakes made by nations in the past. The United States is still a young nation and therefore still exhibits the ignorance that older countries have already learned from.

When you think of the word "American" try to remember that while most Americans exploit the word "freedom" many of them acknowledge the word "accountability".

Fellow Americans: We can change these problems. Humble Yourselves!
Englishman: "Oh dear. Americans have such awful grammar. And why do they talk so loud?"

American: "What you talkin' 'bout bitch?"

Englishman: "Ugh..."

The ultimate center of steriotypes. Steriotyped as unintelligent, obese, and corrupt toward other countries. Of course, there are people like this is in America, but you will find them elsewhere, too. Also catagorized as redneck, demanding, bitchy (in males and females,) and spell terribly, but these are not as common.
Look at that fat American girl over there telling her Dad in a bitchy way how she got an F on her report card in a redneck voice!

Wow, she really gives that country a bad name.

Love us or hate us, think about the huge, positive influence we've had on other countries: DEMOCRACY. Yes, the Greeks may have pioneered the concept, but had it not been for America's successful experimentation with it, you'd still be living under a tyrant.

Also, the highest-rated definitions of this word SICKEN ME. You say we make so many ignorant stereotypes, when you made one yourself right there! Remember, stereotypes hurt everybody.

I DON'T EAT FAST FOOD, AND I DON'T OWN A GUN....yet. Hell, at some point I'm gonna need it! So'll you!
Anyone who disgraces true American culture in front of my face will be slapped.
