Hmmm

Of course, what Perry said is completely accurate, despite Barr’s own idiotic reporting and embarrassing lack of geographic knowledge.  As even Andy Barr should be able to see from the clearly labeled map below, Mexico is, in fact, “in America.” This, of course, is exactly what Perry said, according to Barr’s own cited quotes.  Nowhere does Barr relate that Perry declared Juarez to be “the most dangerous city in Texas,” which his hackish and geographically challenged reporting suggests the Republican governor actually said.  In other words, unless he has data to prove that another city in America is more dangerous than Juarez, Andy Barr is an utter fool.

Well dear Red State splitters of hairs, you are not correct either.

If he had said

"Juarez is the most dangerous city in the Americas.’”

I might be tempted to agree

It is somewhat antiquated as an expression of geographic location I know; but there you have it.

America is generally accepted as being the United States of America as in Voice of America as broadcast from Tijuana?

Now if you had said......

América

I wouldn't be arguing

;-)

I know you try so very hard to pardon stupidity so have a little song from me to you:

I come from America?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
