People seem to forget that the Americas are more than The United States of America. Ask people how many countries are in North America? Most will say 2, United States and Canada; some will say 3 and include Mexico, very few realize that their are 23 Countries in North America plus a s**t load of territories. Then there are another dozen countries in South America, so that's what, 35 different nationalities that can be referred to as America.

And before some one say "you don't refer to some one by the continent, only by the country", how many people refer to people as European, Asian, or African? those earn't countries but are Continents.

Now that that is said, it is generally understood that when someone is called "American" we are referring to some one who's nationality is that of The United States of America

Guess things just cant be simple. you know what I meant, you know what I mean. if we need to get technical. ill get it reworded to 'proudly United States of America Owned & Operated'
Although technically people from mexico, canada, hell all the way down to argentina would be considered Americans but I believe that the legal citizens of our country should be employed before a company starts importing.
could write 'God Bless America' down the side but you would argue its not politically correct.
is what it is

Looks good man! Take those trailer manufacturer stickers off and it will clear up the back and sides even more. It kinda gets in the way of the first part of your name and they aint paying ya to advertize anyways!
