I was going to ignore this thread, but I just can't. I don't know what the OP's problem is, but he obviously has some serious issues. How has this
stupid rant gotten this far? Let me just say that I was born and raised and grew to adulthood in New Orleans, but have lived in Connecticut for the
last 28 years, so I think I am well qualified to have an informed opinion on this topic.
Where to begin?
"racists and bigots and people who think blacks are lower then animals"
First of all, it's THAN, not THEN. Learn spelling and grammar, you ignorant Yankee POS. Second, I have met many, many more of those types of people
up here than I ever did back home. When I first moved up here the national leader of the KKK lived in Meriden, CT. Also, regarding "the Northeast
Liberal Elite"...I can vouch for the fact that not only is the Northeast well-populated with bigots and racists, but also that their numbers are only
matched or exceeded by Left Liberal elitists.
"we in the north east founded this country"
Actually, the Spanish were in North America long before the English. St. Augustine, FL was founded in 1565. They were in the Southwest even earlier.
As for the English, Jamestown, VA was settled in 1604. The Pilgrims didn't show up in Plymouth until 1620. Learn some history, you ignorant Yankee
"Those Founding Fathers you keep going on and on about? Who do you think those wig-wearing lacy-shirt sporting revolutionaries
Hmm, you mean guys like George Washington (VA), Thomas Jefferson (VA), Patrick Henry (VA), James Monroe (VA), Francis Lightfoot Lee and Richard Henry
Lee (VA)? Evidently you need more than just a remedial history lesson.
"the next time Florida gets hit by a hurricane you can come crying to us if you want to, but you're the ones who built on a swamp"
Fair enough, but in exchange, the next time the Northeast is devastated by a hurricane the way it was by the 1-2 punches of Connie and Diane in 1955,
or by a massive blizzard like in 1977, or by a massive ice storm, then let's not have the Yankees go crying to the Feds for relief, either...after
all, they live in a cold place prone to snowstorms and other nasty winter weather. Deal? I didn't think so. How uncharitable and uncaring a thing to
"your party spent more money on Billionaires Private Jets and illegal wars and defending pedophiles in office and pissing off the rest of the
"Your party"? What party is that? Politics has nothing to do with geography. There are a lot of Democrats from the South, and they are every bit as
guilty of ruining the country as Republicans.
In my 28 years up here I have run into more idiots like the OP than I care to remember, but in its defense I will say that Connecticut has been good
to me, and generally speaking, its benefits have outweighed its disadvantages.
Still, you can take the boy out of the South, but you can't take the South out of the boy. If I were able to make the move easily, I would like to go
home, where both the weather and the people are warmer.
But not back to New Orleans...I'd be GTT...Gone to Texas. Bush Country! Yee-Hah!
Couldn't resist that last flourish.
I've said my peace.
PS - Actually I thought of one other thing. My family arrived in the colonies in 1735 during the French/Indian Wars and were actually here for the
Revolution and the founding of our nation. What about you, the OP, JMasters, on your high horse?
