    So your story is still that America's Founders came here through Ellis and you're sticking to it?

    How does an actual "American" act? What are the criteria for being a "real American"?

    I would think, as an American, you would take pride in what was on display through that rendition of the song. Inclusiveness, tolerance, freedom.

    Seems like you are reading an awful lot into something pretty innocent and actually pretty lovely.
    As an American he may or may not take pride in something. That is part of the freedom of being an American. Whatever you may think of the song is irrelevant to someone else's free opinion.

    So only Americans are prideful in their accomplishments?

    Communicating with the majority of your fellow Americans, allowing you to participate in the American culture, might be a good start.

    They speak our language. They obey our laws. They make an effort to ingratiate themselves with the people living here before they arrived and contribute something to the collective whole of our society as a whole.

    They don't saunter in like they own the place, and demand that everyone else change to accommodate them. Such people are not behaving like potential citizens, with an interest in becoming a part of our greater culture, but arrogant tourists.

    They should be treated as such.

    I agree, but since we are exchanging opinions......

    Does this quote not apply to America as well:
    "There is no such thing as a model or ideal Canadian. What could be more absurd than the concept of an "all Canadian" boy or girl? A society which emphasizes uniformity is one which creates intolerance and hate." - Pierre Trudeau
