    I am a First Generation American,

    parents are from an African country, can you guess which one? A question for Americans though: do you say that you are American as a whole or do you say that your are a New Yorker? (or whatever state you are from)

    Hey Madison18 that posted about guns.

    You didn't like my answer so you had to block me?? Shows your an immature liberal that cannot hold a conversation. Get a few years under your belt sweetheart, and pray you never need to protect yourself. Just because I refuse to be a sheepal and drink the liberal kool aid...

    I am a very proud American military wife

    and mom. My husband is an officer in the Air Force. We are celebrating his 30 years in the service of his country. I support and salute all of the American troops; male and female, who keep us free from known and unknown terrorists.

    Question! Do you feel

    that illegal immigrants should be allowed to obtain a drivers licence in the US? Do you feel that illegal immigrants children should be allowed to receive an education in the US? I asked my mother the first question, and she said no, they shouldn't be allowed to have a drivers...

    I believe it's better to comply with police

    and stay calm than end up battered and bruised and possibly in a morgue.

    I Think George Zimmerman Didn't Do Wrong (another update)

    I really think George Washington had a crystal

    ball to see the current state of US politics when he strongly discouraged a party system. It's done nothing but be a divisive entity in congress stifling the law making progress. As a result I just feel like it's created these false loyalties and everyone placing blame when...

    With Memorial Day weekend upon us,

    I would ask that you keep a good thought for all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Although what today's military is doing is not as clear cut and easy to understand as in earlier times, the United States is still a damn fine place to live and raise...

    Donald Trump reminds me of the bully in

    elementary school who kept calling me a loser. But Donald Trump is a millionaire so I don't know what that says about bullies. I wonder what that kid from elementary school is doing now. If he's a millionaire too, I'm just going to be done with life and move into a comfy hole...

    Why do other countries hate us

    so much? Why do they feel the need to terrorize us? Attack us? Threaten us? Kill our people? Our friends? Our loved ones? Why are they keeping our soldiers captive and chopping their heads off? For what? To send us a message? What message? The only message they're sending us is...

    I prefer "Usonian." It makes it clear I mean

    I'm from the U.S.A. An alternate form is "Usanian." I feel like that's more informative if I'm going to introduce my nationality without any other context. Then again, it's rare that people think I'm from any other country covered by the demonym "American," which covers the...

    Born in England but brought to America at

    almost 2yo. Most people think I'm full of it since I don't have an accent. I don't even remember being in England. If it weren't for my Birth Certificate I'd think my parents lied to me. Haha

    I am American and I live at a town with a large

    university that has a lot of foreign students. This is what I like about America: taking in all who want a better life regardless of race, culture etc... Granted they may not always be treated the best by some people but there are a lot like me who welcome them with open arms.

    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...
