It doesn't mean the same thing here!
As some of us (Brits) become more interested in US politics I am reminded of my one trip to the USA a few years ago. I was in Boston and some of the locals were interested in the design of our UK banknotes. I mentioned that even though there is a picture of the queen on the note I do like it even though I am a committed republican. I was immediately told: Don't say that around here! It was very nice to then discuss how one word can mean very different things to different people. By the way I am very fond of our American friends and of your lovely country.
