Stand proud, America. People might say we're a nation of self-obsessed simpletons who make no redeeming contributions to the world economy. But Ashton Kutcher knows different. And today, he said so.

In an interview with Charlie Rose at the TechCrunch Disrupt conference, Kutcher explained how Our Nation is still great. "People say that we don't make anything in America," Kutcher told Rose. "I think we make two things extraordinarily well: Technology and entertainment." Needless to say, Kutcher, Hollywood's renaissance mannequin, is good at both! This is the guy behind the entertainemt achievements What Happens in Vegas and Dude, Where's My Car?, not to mention groundbreaking technology like Blah Girls, an animated cartoon website. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, China. USA!
