"Manifest Destiny to overspread and to possess the whole of the continent which Providence has given us." O'Sullivan meant that the United States was clearly destined—set apart for a special purpose—by God to extend its boundaries all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

What is 50 40' or fight?

It's actually "Fifty-Four Forty or Fight" (or, in your notation, "54°40′ or Fight"), and it was the slogan of the expansionist-minded Democrats in the mid-1840s. The slogan refers to a particular line of latitude which defined the northern-most extent of the Oregon Country, a territory which was disputed and claimed jointly by both the United States and Great Britain. The territory under dispute included all of the modern states of Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and parts of Montana, Wyoming, and the Canadian province of British Columbia. Various proposals to resolve the joint claims of sovereignty were proposed, but proponents of "Manifest Destiny" thought that the United States should resolve the conflict with Great Britain by insisting on taking the entire territory (all the way North to the 54'40" line) and if necessary to fight (go to war) to do so. President James K. Polk ultimately resolved the dispute peacefully in the Oregon Treaty of 1846, by extending the border between the United States and British North America along the 49th parallel. The phrase "Fifty-Four Forty or Fight" has been attributed to William Allen, who was a Senator from Ohio at the time.

What were the three main disputes between the US and Britain?

The three main disputes were the initial colonial movement for independence, the efforts of the US to maintain that independence and ultimately disagreements over the boundaries between the United States and Canada (which was a British colony and dominion for much of the past three hundred years). Obviously the Revolutionary War was fought to separate the United States from Britain. The War of 1812 was fundamentally about the ability of the US to function as a separate nation rather than being pulled back into the British orbit. As late as the American Civil War, the British were trying to leverage a relationship with the southern states into a stronger position in North America. Finally, the US and Britain have had disputes over Canada. In 1775, a continental army invaded Quebec with disastrous results. Through the first half of the 19th century the US and Britain quarreled over the northern boundary of the US--most colorfully involving the slogan "Fifty four forty or fight".

What does it mean to be JABBING in America and who coined the term?

The term- JABBING in America was coined by reggae creator and trench town reggae legend Ras cardo who came up with the term and the idea to help lift America out of its present depression, and financial hardships and uncertainty. He thought that it would be a most fitting slogan for people to share with each other and to feel good about in this time since he knows what it really means to overcome hardships coming from Jamaica to America. The term means -ABBS- America bouncing back soon, or to Jamaicanize it-JABBING- Jamerican bouncing back soon. This is his original idea under his copyrighted slogan- A reggae education for a healing of the nation.(c) All rights reserved globally.

What did the slogan 54'40 or fight represent?

The slogan "Fifty-four forty or fight" originated during a dispute between the United States and Great Britain over the Oregon country. Under the terms of a treaty signed in 1818, both nations were permitted to occupy the territory. The territory began at 42° north latitude, the southern boundary of present-day Oregon; it extended north to 54° 40' (54.66°) north latitude, in present-day British Columbia. At the time this was the recognized southern boundary of Russian America (later purchased by the US in 1867 as Alaska). In 1844 James K. Polk (1795-1849) used "Fifty-four forty or fight" to rally supporters in his successful presidential campaign. Two years after Polk took office as president he settled the dispute with Great Britain; the boundary was then set at 49 degrees north, the northern boundary of present-day Washington State and the border between the United States and Canada. *As this issue was settled, the US began its war with Mexico, further extending the concept of Manifest Destiny regarding US territorial claims in North America.
