What does it mean to be an American? We've seen Donald Trump elected as our president. His supporters just love the cheap entertainment he provides daily.

So, what does it mean to be American? I'd prefer to think that it is defined by the countless acts of selflessness with strangers helping one another during Hurricane Harvey, rather than by the racism, misogyny and hyper-nationalism embraced by Trump and his most ardent supporters.

That's right, Brian. It's about looking out for other peoples' backs. If we don't concern ourselves with the rights and welfare of others, then our own could vanish. Being an American is not about being selfish, it's about cooperation. Suddenly people are being reminded how important having a government is, during these terrible times of natural disasters.

@Munem Sahariar It is extremely rude to @ mention a ton of people, and then delete the comment.

It shows that you know it is not a desirable behaviour, but you insist on engaging in it and then want to cover your tracks.

Please refrain from doing so in future. If you @ mention someone, please also explain why.

Hmm... I was wondering why I was getting mentioned in this thread before I commented, but there was no mention anywhere to be seen.

Same here. For what were we tagged?

@Md Zuhair To get the tagged people to look at this note, of course. Which, as explained by Calvin, is very rude if it's just to get more views instead of because of some actual reason.

I like the idea of putting this question as a note, however, it would be more fun if we can have some counting system so that we know exactly how many people are of these types.

I think you can guess my mind by my comment. :P

Great minds are not only capable of discussing ideas, but also capable of making these ideas accessible and understandable to average and small minds.

I would think of worse things to say back to Trump other than "hello".

I identity with the first one the most. Do you think this model is always true?

Deva Craig - 1 month, 2 weeks ago

Not sure. But probably it is true. A great mind should discuss and create new ideas! :)

Munem Sahariar - 1 month, 2 weeks ago

I agree, I just felt the need to discuss the idea.

Do note however that the converse of the statements in the image posted aren't true in general.
