Charge them a Yankee Tax when they move here, and charge them extra each time they complain about how things are done here and how they could do things better.

If it wasn't for all the Yankees locating their factories in Greeneville, the other half you would be on welfare, too.
By the way, most of the Yankees I've talked to would be more than glad to leave this place. The Greeneville economy is keeping them from unloading their property and hitting the road.
I guess you are stuck with each other. Change is a b*tch ain't it? And, no, I am not a Yankee.

Let me guess, you're from Florida? Yankee, Floridian, same difference.

Not a Floridian, just not from Greeneville and that is all that really matters. It doesn't matter to the locals where you are from if it is not here. You are a foreigner and you suck. And, in their opinion you will always suck. Heard it before. Don't care. Truth is Greeneville's major employers and biggest businesses are not from here. The people who have done the most for this community's economy in the last 50 years are not from here, locals just don't want to talk about that subject. They just want to keep going to the foreigner's factories for thirds, shopping at the foreigner's stores and eating at those cheap, foreign-owned chain restaurants. It looks to me like those foreigners, notherns, Yankees, whatever you call them are the gravy train for good ol' Greeneville. You shouldn't bite the hand that literally feeds you.

I think he may be speaking of one person in particular. You cant judge everyone the same. I am a yankee technically but have been in Greeneville since about 1983. I have never had a problem fitting in etc. So get over it!

Think you have troubles now? If immigration reform
passes you will be flooded with newly legal Mexicans
that will take your jobs.

I know a lot of people who have moved here from the North, the deep South, the East coast, from the upper Midwest, and the West coast who have fit in nicely, are happy, and have made many friends. Maybe the problem lies in your mirror.

And I know a lot of people who moved here from somewhere else and are stuck, under or not employed at all... and even more who are already gone. In fact, I have met more people that find locals unfriendly than the other way around. Most of them just tuck their tails and go home. Me thinks the problem is the local cuisine who are more concerned about where you are from and the state of your eternal soul than making friends. They are friendly alright, as long as you are paying for something, but don't try fencing your property ( because they have always hunted it) or trying to take a job from their relative who was just sprung from the slammer for meth yesterday. Then they are not so friendly. Me thinks the problem is not mine. As I tell others who inquire about Greeneville. It's a great place if you don't need or want anything but simple food staples, don't need or want to work and want your children to play sports, but not excel academically. If you require little to no mental stimulation and can put up with bad drivers, meth heads, poor service... Greeneville is the place for you.

Are we locals expected to bow down to you who made the choice to move here or what for all you have done for us? God made the choice for some of us to be born here, but you chose for yourself to move here. Let me guess, you moved here for a reason more selfish than to help out the local economy.

I think that in the past people who moved South hoping to exploit the locals were called "carpetbaggers". If you don't like it here, leave.
