Typical yankee thinks everyone in the south is dumb. Just ask a yankee and they will tell how they did it (anything) better up north.

If they did it so much better up North, why the hell are they moving to the South!

Perhaps he hasn't appointed any southerners because there isn't a position in the cabinet called "Secretary of Racism," "Secretary of Divisive Rhetoric" or "Secretary of S**TKICKING..." ?

The south has a lot to apologize for, after the last three presidents. Did you notice the state of the country ?

Ha, Ha. I love this! Uncle Buck, he must be talking about Jimmy Carter (Georgia) and Bill Clinton (Arkansas)! Or, maybe he's talking about Al Gore (Tennessee).

No doubt. Can you believe that guy? On his latest post he even mentions he was too busy "with the dating game." He's so full of himself. Calls himself a fighter, but has never served his country. I have never seen someone so self-impressed.

No, I'm independent, not DEMOCRATIC, as the party is correctly known.

And as for nastiness, I give back to RePERVlican neocons what I get, generously.

Yeah -- much better to be the enemy of the entire world, like your hero King George the Last and his malignant stooge Chickenhawk Cheney wanted the U.S. to be. THAT really worked well, didn't it ?

Frankly what the nation needs now more than ever are traditional Southern and Mid-Western small town values. The further America gets from Southern values, the further we move away from American values.
