There are no states here that don't have plenty of real bacon.

But we don't say the pledge of allegiance to Washington, Oregon, South Dakota or Minnesota.
We say the pledge of allegiance to the Untied States of America.
Our Canadian cousins are similar with their national anthem, Oh Canada.
If I remember my social studies classes correctly, all nations are a collection of states, provinces or cantons.
You are correct. But, some citizens of some states appear to associate more strongly with their state / province than their country, and this probably has something to do with the way that was formulated. For instance, Up to 50% of Texans see themselves as Texans first and Americans second. And, don't go calling a Scot or an Irishman British. And many a Bavarian will object to being called German, although, undoubtedly, they are.

I'm a New Zealander first, before I'm a Wairarapan. In South Africa, the divide between the provinces is now mostly seen as rivalry on the sportsfield, but 100 years ago, it was almost like 4 seperate countries, loosely alligned around two divisions, The Cape and Natal, and the Orange Free State and Transvaal. In the Army, (and I'm talking only 30 years ago) we were still assigned barracks around those divisions, to prevent unnecessary conflict.

Those always make me laugh. We have a supermarket here, Pack'nSave, that seems to attract the same "interesting" people, but not nearly to the same scale!

I've heard B-25s up close, and I played hooky to go over to the airport and watch FIFI (B-29), Diamond Lil (B-24A), and a C-46 fly out at the same time (that's 4xR-3350 + 4xR-1830 + 2xR-2800), but it still wasn't as loud as one AV-8 Harrier hovering and flying sideways down the runway, spinning slowly.
You have not heard noisy. Try F35 JSF... !

I much prefer this, it should be the national anthem.

But the total population is less than how much the population of Sweetwater, Texas swells for the annual rattlesnake roundup.

Even our smallest state, Rhode Island has three times more people.
It's awesome living less crowded...

But I don't know the words to that one!

On a (tangental) related note: When pouring Canadian Maple Syrup on my French toast this morning, I could not help but notice the ingredients list on the bottle. It said: "Ingredients: Canadian Maple Syrup."
No additives, no colourants, no nothing. Just maple syrup. In this day and age of processed food, that really made me feel good!

You are not a "hater" just a "dis-liker" correct?

I always buy Canadian maple syrup. It's substantially less expensive here than Vermont maple syrup.
I have no idea why, but it's been that way as long as I can remember.

Probably because Canada has so many more maple trees than Vermont, and produces so much more syrup (Quebec alone produces 5 times as much as Vermont).
