Apparently Alaska is not a part of the US.   
   
But sure, keep on preaching about how ignorant other people are.

Pretty certain this is all America.

Captain United States then?
User avatar #1 - superpats (04/04/2013) [+] (3 replies)
actually neither is correct.
The two continents make up The Americas.
The country is the United States of America.

Besides that, this is one of the most petty things to be upset about, ever. Does it really matter that people refer to it as America?

And yet, anyone with any semblance of intelligence will note that "America" (for most uses) is a shortening of "the United States of America". Similarly to how most people call Germany Germany, and not "die Bundesrepublik Deutschland [the federal republic of Germany]".    
   
In other words, your argument is invalid; but you're likely not intelligent to notice.

Funny all anyone ever calls us is Americans. I don't see why they are throwing a bitch fit.

The problem is this: No other country recognizes itself with the name "America" in it's title. Argentina, Mexico, Peru, Brazil, Uruguay, etc. etc. All of them have their own respective names, so, since we're the only one that is identified with "America" in our name, we get the privilege.

I'm more bothered that US citizens call themselves "Americans" and you can't(don't) call other people from the continent "Americans"... It's like you'd only call the french citizens "Europeans" and not the people in actual europe. Or only call chinese people "Asians" and not everyone originating from the continent of Asia

im australian and if im refering to the continent or both i use north or south america or the americas. but if im refering to U.S.A i just use america because it rolls off the tongue smoother

Technically it would be the Americas' because its split into north and south, you wouldnt call it Korea unless kim jong un unites them under his glorious leadership of course!
