ya'll half breeds are pretty dang funny. ya'll know your here 'cause you could'nt cut it up north. Your idea of skillsets is putting carpet in tha trunk of a Saturn, and you whine like girls cause nobody will pay you $25 per hour for your minimum wage skills.lol!!!<quoted text>
They wont even agree to that.
They need a reality check. They hung on to the "take your time you are in the South" saying way too long. The rest of the world especially the South passed them up. Don't have any bad thoughts, but did you ever wonder why it takes so long for locals to react at red lights that changed green?
This place could be so much better if they lost their stupid bad attitudes and accepted others. They were so use to running things a certain way they did nothing but make us at the bottom if not last at every category which is good for life.
Why improve the looks of the square if the heart and thoughts of the people is still bad? Just a big cover up, an illusion. No wonder industry does not want to come here. Most were smart enough at the meetings to right through the local machine. Even a 5 on one is not enough brain power to match against an educated person.
Our schools brag about scores rising but the kids are a bit slow. What is up with that? I know one kid who graduated who boosted about getting all "A"s from cornersville. The kid could barely write. I met locals who bragged about having this degree and that degree and they made me wonder how they even made it through high school.
Locals could not even hang on to industry because of their nasty attitudes towards anyone not from here. Supervision and management knew the whole time and most could not wait to leave here. For the one who got on the poster who asked if a northerner ever called a local a redneck? Well ask yourself, are they right?
Be honest now, locals go out of their way to look and act redneck. They wear the name as if it was a medal of honor.
I too am here for the weather. The main reason they do not listen to yankees is the fear of losing POWER. It is a shame when being here 3 generations is your only card you are holding.
It all started way back when. Even up in the north of the county certain family members would not even allow outsiders to set in their area while in church. Those folks are not too nice, now were they? Today their watered down off spring are doing the same thing but looking even dumber.
Placed outside the area to survive, they would make a regular he-haw member out of a local. Mind you, not all locals are like this. Some smarter ones get it and are ashamed of their counterparts.

Local people have to carry the heritage and history of this city to their future generations and we have no part in that. If the school is failing, their attitude is "butt out, it is ours". If you are ever invited to a social event with locals, all they talk about is old places to eat, shop, schools, and events. The difference is, in the North we do the same but we do not isolate outsiders, we ask for them to join us with their experiences For the someone who noted the Cornersville A graduate, have you read the news in Atlanta?
If this city wants to advance in today's world, the council has to stop saying "duh" to every new idea and stop fearing change.

Let's check YOUR skill sets out. Spelling is not one of them. Neither is sentence structure. Your knowledge of how Saturn hired people is also extremely lacking. In fact, if they couldn't have cut it up North, they would never have gotten hired because of the strict hiring testing that was done. Oh, that and many came from "down South", namely Alabama. Also from out West, and the Mid West as well. We know what you are doing for a living just from reading your failed posting. So, what are the bologna sandwiches like in jail? I've heard they use old meat. And I bet you moaned like a girl every time you go there. You make me LOL!

Is it change the local city, county public officials fear or that the outsiders will expose all the cover ups and coruption things that may have been done for years?
More Northern and outsiders so to say, people need to be appoint too the loacl boards, elected to public office, hired into the school systems!
New people bring change, new ideas, and open government for all!

Hey I agree with that. We need new blood, new thoughts, new ways and with that we have to get better result. The locals feel comfortable with each other and for some weird reason take joy in knowing things others dont know which makes them feel superior at that moment for some silly reason. I like hearing about old lewisburg but like you say they don't even give you eye contact when they are with their own.

Spend 5 minutes reading through a few threads on here. Look hard, look at the political threads, the obit threads, the business threads, the mommy threads and look at how many of these people are related.(I do not mean Cousin-marrying related, although there is plenty o' that too.) This is how they treat their KINFOLK. PUBLICLY. They (EVERY ONE OF THEM) should be humiliated, but they are not. Their too busy pointing the finger at anyone other than themselves to even know their behavior is SHAMEFUL.
They gossip, slam, degrade their OWN FAMILY. Don't expect anything but rabid dog behavior from rabid dogs......
Before y'all tell me to "find I-65 back north", my answer is no. And you really don't want me to. Without me and my Yankee friends, this town would be in worse shape than it is. Most of us that moved here for business were better prepared for the possibility of troubled times than the locals were. Most of us are in the car trade and know its fluctuation. We came prepared with education, resumes and REAL TIME work experience. So when the lay offs began, and we started moving into other industry, our superior education and experience pushed your locals out of a job.
Heck, your shopping areas are all but abandoned because locals have no desire to care for each other and have let what little small business they had, FAIL. They would rather complain all the way to Wal-Mart about how the Yankee's ruined this town (I love IRONY.)

You hit the nail smack on the head. The local have-nots takers make it a point to run down outsiders. When anything that went wrong they blamed it on the only people that they could; the makers/producers. I was wondering were obama got his scheme.
We owe them nothing. They need to step back and take a few notes instead of fighting.
I don't know how outsider who owns a business in the area can survive. The locals should appreciate anyone who wants to come here and consider them locals too. They are the only folks who seem to care about the area and trying to make something out of it. They allowed it to crumble to shambles.
Where I came from, the best got the jobs. You know...the ones with educations, the ones who stayed sober, had good attitudes, appreciated the business, had good work ethics and keep themselves presentable. Is that what they fear in outsiders?

To make the necessary changes that would make this a great place to live an event, tipping point, must occur. Spring Hill is a good example, even after GM halted production, the city still grew. People from Tennessee and all over the world moved there to live in a clean, well managed community. Remember Spring Hill in the mid 70's?
The locals lost total control and the city thrived.
The important point to take from this post is that when GM scaled down, the city did not, it grew.
It wasn't an outsider that started the regional dump
and it is not outsiders who keep this city from moving in a positive direction in an ever changing world.
