Top Ten Things That Spring to Mind Whenever Anyone Mentions America

This list is in no way intended to offend. It's merely a list of things to do with America.

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho singing the National Anthem

I am not an American, but Jackie's stirring rendition makes me feel proud of America. The Apollo program, and Jackie's incredible voice are two things that make me glad to have lived at this time.

She has done a superb job with the anthem at several NHL and MLB games, and in particular a the Detroit Lions-Green Bay Packers NFL game on Thanksgiving Day 2013. Next up, Super Bowl 2015 or 2016.

No one sings the National Anthem with more respect than Jackie Evancho. Just watch her sing it last july 4th on the PBS "A Capitol Fourth".

At 16 she was asked to sing the National Anthem at Donald Trump's Inauguration. Because of the insanity of the radical left she immediately began receiving death threats, threats of boycotts, hate mail, disgusting posts on her social media and horrible posts on political websites across the world wide web. She stood up to it all and proudly sang for America. Bravest thing I've ever witnessed.

Even though HAMBURGers are German... - ethanmeinster

While the Hamburg STEAK (basically Salisbury steak without the gravy) was indeed of German origin, the HAMBURGER in a bun with the fixin's was a 19th-century American improvement.
Thus endeth the lesson.

8 Arrogance

This is not fair. Everyone blames America for being arrogant, but not every sing person is. While the majority of the population may be ignorant, the open-minded people hate arrogance. Besides, there are arrogant people in every country, not just America. - BlueTopazIceVanilla

I'm from America and this is true. There's just too many people out there boasting about their "freedom" and insult other countries all willy-nilly. They fail to realize that they are NOT the best country in the world and that there are nations out there that are a lot better. And we wonder why the rest of the world hates us.

I'm also American and I love you for writing this! What you just said was so true!

And you're not arrogant for constantly sitting on a high-horse above us? Interesting. - Garythesnail

America is not #1 in arrogance - FerrariDude64
