The US is a country. It's full of fatties, idiots, bigots, and corruption. It's full of people. People from all over the world who fled oppression to find a new home. It has the most patents, entrepreneurs, inventors, and researchers per capita. People can say whatever they want (the geniuses and the morons). There are over 300 million people. Those who hate them all are no better. amirite?

I heard an interesting interpretation a while back: The cliche is that the US is a melting pot, but in reality it's a salad. A melting pot means everyone gives up their past and conforms to a certain ideal. That's not what America is, or at least that's not what America should be. It should be a salad-a dish that takes many different ingredients from lettuce to tomatoes to croutons to dressing and mixes it up to form something delicious. Sure, some bites will have more tomato than most and others will be saturated in dressing, but in the end a dish is created that does not highlight one ingredient in particular but speaks to what can be formed when all those ingredients are put in one bowl.

USA! USA! USA! Kill the Commies!

It's more of a marbled cheese. Everyone can come together a be American (the cheese), but they all keep their heritage and customs (the colors and hints of flavor in the cheese). They're all together and cohesive, but they retain their customs and stories and add to the whole of America. We bring all of our heritage together and we give it back to America, and share it.

Unique, but united.

But when you come to America you are adopting American culture and must abide by it's laws. In a way, immigrants must conform.
