    Umm, I've lived all over the place (currently in Tennessee) and lemme tellya I've met a helluva lot higher ratio of hicks - to - other - people in say, Rural Oregon or Upstate NY. Seriously. Maybe you need to go out and see some more places and meet more people, before you just go and start making snap, blaket judgements about people. Seriously. This "I'm better than you" attitude for no other reason than because you're accustomed to the way things work in your own little pocket of the world - that's gonna need to change.

    I did live in the south for a few years, and my wife is Texan, so I understand its charm. But I'd much rather live in NY among all the different ethnicities and styles and food choices and cool bars with great live music every night and art museums.

    well now, it is true that most southerner are stuck in their ways, but in my family, were not like that. we eat different food, and we are very cultured. but you know your roots and where you come from, and the fact is, that every yankeed that i hvae met that dosnt like southerners , say nasty things about us. so its the same way up there. its a known fact, that we are nicer ppl. u can argue with that. today, this woman i clean for, she used to live in jeresy, and she was jsut a ranting and a raving about how nasty ppl are up there, and how nice and friendly ppl are down here. and she had lived there her whole life. and like i said, i have yankeef riends. but most of theones i have met are nasty and mean. i go up to michigan alot, my brother is up there, and they are all rude to us. i think california would be cool , cause all the ppl i have met from there are very nice,. but there not yankees in my book..

    i cant help myself!!!

    HOME

    I grew up in Vashti
    North Carolina
    out in the country
    where nobody had
    cell phones or cable tv
    I never wore shoes
    momma always said being barefoot
    made your feet tough enough
    to walk on the gravel
    We always knew
    when it was time to go barefoot
    when the Dogwoods bloomed
    I grew up
    with two brothers and two sisters
    I'm the baby
    My big brother Adam
    used to take me for rides
    on his dirt bike
    my little feet dangling on the sides
    as we rode throught the mountain air
    my brown hair
    messier than ever
    my Daddy
    always let me help him
    plant the garden
    I took it very seriously
    hoe
    seed
    cover
    water
    all day long
    just Daddy and me
    Sometimes
    he would let me drive the tractor
    other times
    i rode on the wheel cover
    as he plowed the garden
    It was always tough on me
    being so little and all
    So I fell asleep
    head in the dirt
    feet straight up
    on the telephone pole
    I was homeschooled
    So I didnt have many friends
    except for the neighbor girl
    i used to dance with
    in the front yard
    the woods
    was my best friend
    my faeries and knomes
    helped me build forts out of rope
    and broken electronics
    I picked every flower i saw
    half i would give to momma
    and half i would keep
    I used to love to walk
    in the freshly tilled earth
    and the thorns in the woods
    would prick my feet
    but I refused shoes
    Momma says
    I talked to myself alot
    but there was always someone there
    Now
    I still live in Vashti North Carolina
    No one has cell phones or cable tv
    I never wear shoes
    and i walk on the gravel just fine
    I never go barefoot before the dogwoods bloom
    my legs dont dangle
    on the side of a dirtbike anymore
    but the mountain air still blows my brown hair
    Daddy still plows the garden
    and my toes
    always find themselves embedded
    in the freshly tilled earth
    Im done with school
    and i have many friends
    but i still dance in the front yard
    just my Ipod and me
    the wood is still my best friend
    the thornes still prick my feet
    because i refuse to wear shoes
    the faries and knomes
    welcome me
    each time i enter
    I'm 5'9
    almost 16 years old
    I have boobs now
    and a love for a man
    but I still pick flowers
    half for momma
    and half for me

    I agree that a lot of people in Jersey are pricks. There is also a major Guido problem in Jersey and Long Island. Lots of kids with blown back, gelled up hair and major attitudes and fake tanning problems. But, every region has its draw backs.

    oh come on crummy rummy, the reason that we are the poorer section of the US, is because were too lazy to make the money!!!!! laid back is just another word for laziness. thats why we are fatter down here LOL

    i agree, somedude, every jersey person i ahve met is just plain out nasty!!! except for one family, there nice, but there still loud.

    I wouldn't say every person. Just a lot. But a lot of southerners can come across as really dumb. And racist. And Californians can come across as superficial egomaniacs. And Midwesterners say pop instead of soda.

    1.we have waaaaayy better food, can u say fried chicken and mashed potatoes? can you say fresh Maine Lobster & Steamers

    2.theres a reason why there is no "northern hospitality"
    southern hospitality is highly overated and fake

    3.yankees are rude
    there's a difference between blunt and rude

    4.yankees are loud
    no louder than the raging nascar fans you got slugging back budweiser

    5.we have better summers
    hmmm, which would you rather 80 during the day and cool nights or 95 degrees and 100% humidity 24/7

    7.we have better names for our parents and grandparents

    14.we can watch movies like "O brother where art thou" and understand what their saying


    15.were simple people who love simple things

    that's true, plenty from the south are perfectly comfortable living in rickety trailer just as long as they got the new F150 in the front yard

    17.we can wear shorts in april

    27.its fun to make fun of yankees
    for every yankee joke, there's ten jokes making fun of southerners with good reason

    28.yankees talk like they have nasel problems
    southerners talk like they're missing a cromosome or twelve

    29.have you ever heard of "a southern gentlemen"? theres a reason for that
    yeah, up here we call them fags


    30.southerners are the most laid back ppl on earth and dont have sticks up their butts

    31.square dancing is fun as hell, and we invented it!

    alright, I got bored and gave up after 36. I'm sorry, the southern states are the poorest both financially and in terms of education in the nation. Unfortunately for those that live there it shows.

    the number one reason why the north owns the south

    WE DIDN'T VOTE FOR BUSH

    the number two reason

    WE DIDN'T VOTE FOR HIM A SECOND TIME

    Well, this is a little random but I'm a Canadian and we all say 'pop' as well. I find it strange whenever I hear someone say 'soda,' because I'm just not used to it.

    And I liked that poem. :)
