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?

America

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.

Davidsays...

The USA is America. Deal with it.

Davesays...

I got it, thanks for your correction and facts but having a capital letter does change a frase into a name.

So, is it Puerto Rico of America? or,

The State of Puerto Rico?, I was reading that Puerto Rico is a territory that belongs to The United States.

If they are united, why is Puerto Rico not united but a territory instead?.

It was the same process.

I don't need facts to explain this.

So, why didn't they named the country "The United Colonies of America?.

Is there a difference between Colonies and States?

"United Colonies" or

"United States"

None of these names are appropriate neither. These words are meant to be understood as they are and not as a country.

This is how we clearly understand these words:

United Nations is not a country.

United Kingdom is not a country (they are countries and each has its name).

"The Colonies Of America".

"United States Of America".

Davidsays...

Yawn. All we get from you is a mountain of BS.

America is a continent. We're all Americans, not just the US of A.

Dave wrote: "Of America" is not the same as is just "of America", there is a capital "O" in the word "Of" and that grammatically makes a very obvious definition to understand unless you are still stupid.

What?!?!

First of all, the ‘of’ is not capitalized in the official name of the USA.

Proof: https://www.un.org/en/member-states/#gotoU

https://www.state.gov/independent-states-in-the-world/

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States

Second, what is this “very obvious definition” that you mention? I can’t wait to read what you will fabricate.

Third, even if the ‘of’ were capitalized, it wouldn’t completely change the meaning of that preposition.

You calling The Real and True American(Canada), a.k.a. Craig, stupid is the most amazing case of the pot calling the kettle black. Hilarious!

Davidsays...

Dave, I hope you have more sense than Craig, and that you won’t deny the indisputable facts that I have provided links to. I won’t hold my breath. You have proven yourself to be an ignorant, poorly educated, simple-minded clown.

Davidsays...

If I am wrong, why don’t you explain how I am wrong? You are doing the same thing as Mrs. Roda Saris Setsuko Anonymous. She always says that I am wrong, but she never explains what I am wrong about. Don’t you realize how foolish you are?

Davidsays...

I explain exactly how you are wrong and I provide multiple links to proof. Why don’t you do the same?

Davidsays...

Being annoying doesn’t make me wrong.

Davidsays...

Not only do you not explain what I am wrong about, and how it is wrong, you definitely don’t provide links to any form of proof. Why don’t you prove me wrong?

The Real and True American(Canada)says...

I am NO fool (0%)! (No one other than yourself should be going against that).

Do you even realize how ridiculous you are Annoying David?

I really am NOT any of those negative words - that you speak of every time!

I assume - you will always be the 1st one to downvote me (every time I make a new comment).

Davidsays...

Prove me wrong. I clearly proved you wrong, yet you still claim that you are correct. If this isn’t foolish, then what is it?

The Real and True American(Canada)says...

Whoever those other people are, I sure am glad that they aren’t giving Annoying David any upvotes!!!

Who knows how many people have visited this website but as soon as it hits 1,000 visitors, I assume that I will have more upvotes than it is for downvotes!

Davidsays...

“They ARE cities in front of my eyes whether you like it or not Annoying David.”

Um...no. Try again.

Davidsays...

Craig, this is indisputable proof straight from the horse’s mouth that you are 100% wrong.

You lose, clown.

This is more proof that you have absolutely no idea what you are talking about.

I win this game show game.

Davidsays...

But you see names in front of your eyes on Google Maps, so those names absolutely have to refer to cities. Right? Wrong. You need to educate yourself, you ignoramus. You lose.

The Real and True American(Canada)says...

No, I am NOT wrong. You are 1,000 times more wrong the more you keep that up Annoying David. I believe you are the #1 commentator of this website as of today. Bad name calling is NOT what you should be doing.

Davidsays...

How exactly am I wrong? Please explain.

Davidsays...

I am the undefeated champion of this game show game. Suck it, Craig.

Davidsays...

I win.

Davidsays...

You lose.

Davidsays...

You hoser.

Davidsays...

I warned you that this would happen. I gave you a chance to post something other than complete BS. But you just wouldn’t listen. Live and learn, hoser.

Davidsays...

Cities, district municipalities, and city neighborhoods are not all the same thing. Learn the differences. The world is more complicated than your inferior intellect can possibly comprehend. You lose, hoser.

Davidsays...

I win this game show game.

Davidsays...

Craig, prove me wrong. I dare you. Spoiler alert: you won’t be able to because I am 100% right and you are 100% wrong. Stop being a total clown, you simpleton.
