USA is not America

Indeed, U.S.A. is not America!

America is the name of a whole continent. United States of America means that the United States belongs to America and NOT that America belongs to the United States. So, next time you want to refer to The United States of America, you can do it as U.S. or the States or whatever you want but not as only America. Gotcha?


How should I use the term America then?

Here we will show you some wrong and correct uses of the term America:

  • This is how we do it in America.
  • This is how we do it in the States.
  • America is my country and I love it.
  • The United States is my country and I love it.
  • America lost the Vietnam war.
  • U.S.A. lost the Vietnam war.
  • Here in America we love Mc Donald's.
  • Here in the U.S. we love Mc Donald's.

Please, note that this page in not about demonyms (gentilics) but about the way to call a country.

America the one continent was the land where the British came to colonized, after the Spaniards and the others were here already. They used the name of the ONE continent to add it to their new nation's name because that is how they found this continent, with a name, and only being one. What happened later, with the division of a continent, and the naming of a nation with the same name as a continent happened later, and later means copying, and copying means not original, and not original ...

Please get back on your medication.
It seems like you are trying to argue from facts (few of which you state clearly), but your comments quickly become incoherent.

Its easy: America one continent: Original America the nation: A copy of the original.

Maybe if you take the blinds off you might understand what is original and what is a copy. The original is the continent and named "AMERICA" and the copy is the nation who took the name of the continent for itself. It is clearer than water. You just don't accept this because you have been conditioned to see things in a different way, the way the U.S. has taught you.

"Well, talk radio these days, especially conservative talk radio, is a kind of comic book."
Okay, I can go with that; I was speaking in generalities based on what I read and hear, as I don't listen to talk radio. But on that same note, is there really any "liberal" talk radio?

Anonymous (Djibouti) says... "There is no one correct definition of a continent." If you search for the definition of a continent - or just pull out a few dictionaries, the definitions may not be identical but are close enough to be considered as one. "Depending on one's perspective, one's culture, and one's language, America is both a country and a continent." Yes, that's exactly what I have been saying all along - except for the part about being a single ... Read More

There is no one correct definition, so being rational has nothing to do with it. It is based on one's conventions. Don't misuse words.

Might you describe why you believe that "There is no one correct definition?" Please don't persist in your irrational arguments that "It is based on one's conventions," or it depends "on one's perspective, one's culture, and one's language." H2O may be called water, agua, Wasser, voda, ruwa (and others) but it's still the same liquid in any language. As you state "Don't misuse words," I must again caution you about your ... Read More

Who are you to tell who is rationalized and who is not? You yourself agree that the issue could be seen in two ways but yet you call the people who think the other way irrational? why insult the opposition?

"Who are you to tell who is rationalized and who is not?" First I must apologize - I meant to say "reasonable." Mea culpa. On the other hand I believe that Anonymous (Djibouti), and you are indeed "rationalized," or more precisely, you have rationalized your opinions upon dubious bases. "You yourself agree that the issue could be seen in two ways but yet you call the people who think the other way irrational?" No, I do not believe that the issue I spoke ... Read More

This site has become even less reality-based than Mrs. Anonymous's fanciful musings, which is saying a lot.

While I do object to the various excursions into race and politics we have seen, I must ask at what time was this site "reality-based?"
The notion that "America" in the minds of the majority of our planet's citizens does not refer to the USA is clearly not based in reality.
As are the beliefs that "America" comprises a single continent, and that calling yourself an "American" is more definitive than naming your country of origin.

You are just as bad as Misses the Obvious, and deny reality just as much, if you insist that the Americas cannot be one continent. There is no one correct definition of a continent. Depending on one's perspective, one's culture, and one's language, America is both a country and a continent. Misses the Obvious is the worst, so please stop thinking along similar lines.

What is real for you is not real for me. Relativism. But you know I don't embrace relativism so one continent one America is real, the other stuff is made up after the real thing. And you can't deny that.

We slap the books on your face and it would n't make any difference in the way you think because you are so deeply wired into what they taught you in the schools and nothing more than indoctrination. You deny what is real and accept what is unreal. Yeps! America is the name given to one continent not two and certainly not to a country. The nation that was born out of the British colonies took the name of the land that they were in, hence America, the one continent and put it on the name of ... Read More
