Being American:

Driving a car made by American Motors (now defunct, but bought out by Chrysler, which is now German owned.)

Singing "God Bless America" while accompanied on a Yamaha piano (made in Japan.)

Flying an American flag (made in China.)

Playing with my "American Flyer" train set (made in Mexico.)

Purchasing a ticket on American Airlines (from their toll-free call center in India, then getting on one of their smaller jets made in Sweden.)

Cruising on the ship "Pride Of America" (on Norwegian Cruise Lines.)

Watching a British bloke host the show "American Idol" (on a TV made in Korea.)

Is this a great country or what!

Looks like the Chinese have cornered the market on national flags. I wonder who makes theirs? Probably the Mongolians!

Do any of you remember the days before American Motors was aquired by Chrysler. In those days American Motors was owned by Renault of France. They did not like to make it known to the general public at the time.

So what you're saying is that the French surrendered American Motors to Chrysler!

Being American?

Offering help to every country that needs it!

Getting little recognition for the help because we(or I) are sick and tired of having a bunch of poor, dissgruntled , poorly managed country's, with poverty being the norm, deciding that they should 'kill Americans'!

The 'smart' people from those country's legally came to live here, and I thank them for there contribution to the 'dream'!

If your sole intention is to cause disruption and kill people, please line up on the left, bullets will follow!!!

If you wish to make a great life for you and your family, welcome!

I look forward to meeting you!
Every day is a good day.......some are just better than others!
