What is you question, exactly? I hope you aren't a social studies teacher. If you were , you should know this term.

I wonder what it could possibly mean?

If only we had access to something that explained the meaning of words and phrases.

Not much of a reader, huh?

It means that factors like citizenship are not earned (at least for the vast majority of Americans). Most of us are Americans simply because we were fortunate to be born on US soil. We didn't do anything to earn the right to live here. We just won the lottery. And didn't even have to buy a ticket.

Looking it up would not have changed the fact that I had not heard of it.  You said it as if it were a common term that every SS teacher should know like it is a common term. In fact, you said-
I hope you aren't a social studies teacher. If you were , you should know this term.

Actually read quite a bit.  But thanks for assuming I'm an idiot because I didn't teach my kids to feel guilty for everything that has ever happened in US history.

No borders, then. Gotcha.

Yes. The benefits far outweigh the risks.

Wait.......not knowing the meaning of a common phrase does NOT make you an idiot. It does seem safe to assume that a person who reads a lot would have run across that phrase. It further seems like you might have looked up the meaning of that phrase if you read it and couldn't discern its meaning from it's usage. Those assumptions are not far fetched.

It's the "I didn't teach my kids to feel guilty for everything that has ever happened in US history" part of that response that makes you seem dumb.

I know its an accident of birth that I was born an American, that I'm white, that I have all my fingers and toes...I was dealt a good hand. I was even luckier (but it wasn't an accident of birth) that I had a great pair of parents and loving siblings. None of that makes me feel guilty "for everything that has ever happened in US history" nor has anyone ever tried to tell or teach me I was.

Why would you jump from "accident of birth" to guilt for historical events?

I understand the premise, but wasn't familiar with that term. No, not a social studies teacher.

Did Trump just start a trade war with China?
Haven't we been in a trade war with China for about 20 years and been getting our asses handed to us?
Remembered this post today when I read this quote on CNN about oil prices continuing to go up over the summer-
Bass also spoke with Quest about tariffs and the Trump Administration's stance on trade with China. "There's been a trade war with China since 2001," he said. "The only side that's been fighting it, though, is China."
