Hello ATS. been out here a little while reading the threads. Signed up a few weeks ago. While I am just no making my introduction, I have made
some comments on a few threads and am only about 7 or 8 comments away from my 20 minimum to start a new thread.
Thought it about time to introduce myself to you all, so here goes.
I am a Southern Conservative who now lives in New England. You can probably figure out where by my handle. I miss living down south. I miss my
fellow southerners, Louisiana cooking, and the weather. I am part Texan, but being born and raised in Louisiana, consider myself both since I lived
approx half my life in each state and have a Grandmother who is a Texan.
Whenever I see a thread disparaging Southerners, the hair on the back of my neck stands up. I can tell all my bretheren back home that a great many
New England Liberal Elites exhibit far more ignorance and only think they are superior. Many are just plain rude and obnoxious and have never heard
of okra. I huess they fon't serve fried okra at the buffet line at the Harvard cafeteria.
So now that is out in the open, I really enjoy reading all of the opinions on ATS. This is a very diverse community who for the most part is very
well informed and I am grateful for that. I don't always have time to peruse the news and other media outlets for the most current of information.
I am enjoying all of the speculation surrounding what is going on in the Gulf region. Some of it I agree with, some I just shake my head at and
other opinions just make me think "what if?". I look forward to continued participation here on ATS and hope that ya'll will welcome me into the
