    The United States is the only proper name this country has. It's about time the citizens of our nation quit referring to it as America. America is the continent, not a single nation.

    No, the proper name is the United States of America. And there are 2 continents with America in the name.

    How's Emma?

    Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care about that case either. Oh well I am not one of those people I am 6'4" 245lbs and I exercise every day. I would love to see you say something like to my mother in front of me. Probably never happen though you are probably just an internet tough guy. I doubt very seriously you would say that to someones face. Just my thought. What do you think? Oh I am sorry you probably do not have a brain. I on the other hand will be happy to buy you a plane ticket to come here and see if you have the nerve to say that to someone I know.

    And yet I believe that only one nation has the word AMERICA in its name.

    And given that the word AMERICA was coined before the American revolution to describe the collective populations, I think it perfectly okay if we lay claim to that word which we and the rest of the world understands and has understood for over 200 years perfectly.
