mine is fying outsdie and on my vehicles and if those fro the north don’t like it then they can piss off

The "new" (he's only been here a dozen years, the rest of us have been here 25 years or more) neighbor across the street is from Nashua, NH. His car has one of those idiotic "Coexist" bumper stickers and he already has his Obama/2012 sticker displayed in its rear window. He's a stereotypical Yankee liberal in all aspects. He hates Texas and the South and is here only because his job in Boston transferred most of its workforce here to North Texas.

In contrast, my next door neighbor is a proud unreconstructed Confederate (originally from Georgia) and a Tea Party supporter, as am I. To get the goat of that leftist, ultra-PC Yankee, we always make a point to plant little Rebel flags by our sidewalks on Martin Marxist Luther King Jr's birthday. That really gets him fuming and we enjoy seeing him become totally unhinged. And you ought to see (and hear) what we do on Earth Day to annoy him!

I can’t resist this:

His name was John, a traditional Cracker; he was from
Apopka, Florida….. And he needed a loan, So… He walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan Officer.

He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris for an International redneck festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank. The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank.

The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.

Later, the bank’s president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Redneck from the South for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank’s private underground garage and parked it.

Two weeks later, the Redneck returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07.

The loan officer said, “Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out on Dunn & Bradstreet and found that you are a Distinguished Alumni from Ole Miss University, a highly sophisticated investor and Multi-Millionaire with real estate and financial interests all over the world. Your investments include a large number of wind turbines around Sweetwater, Texas. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?”

The good ‘ole boy replied, “Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?”

His name was John…. He is a “cracker”

Keep an eye on us southern boys! Just because we talk funny does not mean we are stupid.

Some have probably heard this using a blonde...still funny.

“Virginia took a hell of a beating last time that happened.”

You need to consider that Joshua Chamblain left Maine over 100 years ago and he ain’t coming back.

The Northeast can only live on past achievements for so long.

If I had to bet on another north v south engagement, my best guess is that the Kennedys in Hyannis would crap in their pants.

Cheers, FRiend

I have kids which have gone around the neighborhood putting little flags onto poles etc.

Never understood as to why people move to an area and then complain about the area they moved to and then wanting it to look like the hell hole they left.

I have a beautiful front garden and there flies the confederate flag.
I have decent looking vehicles and the flag flies on them.

Thankfully I live in one of the most republican counties in the state of FL.

The other week I was looking around on the internet and saw a real estate site for my town.
I saw that the estate agent wrote that this county was one of the most Dem counties in FL.

I called him up and pretended to be from eleswhere and was looking for a home no more than half a million.

The agent gets all chatty on the phone until I say “it looks like an nice area and hopefully I can get south to get away from all these liberals”

The agent then quickly says “well this county is very Democratic and maybe you might want to think again’

I replied “funny you say that because ocording to the census and other sites St Johns county goes nearly 70% at the elections and they do not have any Dems in office”

The agent was duh duh duh still trying to get around the facts and cling to his lie.

Seems like so many on the left they lie and cheat and sounds this guy is trying to recruit his liberal pals to this area

This ain't your daddy's democrat party.

That is indeed true but one wonders if a lot of the oldtimers realize it. I know a guy (my gunsmith) whose father still thinks that things are the same and that the Democrat Party is what it always was. And he resists being educated on the matter.

The South shall rise again!

It won't have to, if we take the much more wholesome step of amputating New England and New York City. They started all the trouble in the first place.

Had one poster last night tell me VA and FL are not southern...

In the FWIW's department, when I was growing up and attending school in Alabama we never thought of Florida as a southern state. We thought it was what it was: a gathering spot for Yankee retirees. Hasn't changed, either.

Given the increased numbers of Northerners who are moving into northern Virginia (I understand that Fairfax County--adjacent to Washington--has over a million residents now), Virginia is becoming less and less of a Southern state.

Republicans freed the slaves from Democrats in the South.

Perhaps in this generation they can free people of all races from dependence upon the federal government shaped (mostly) by Democrats.

And if The Great Republic of Texas was returned to it’s original boundary as the Texians saw it, New Mexico and Colorado would be a non-issue.

Long live the Free State of Texas.

Yep. The only state where the farther north you go, the farther south you get.

Other "Republicans": Martin Marxist Luther King, Junior uttered these words about the greatest President of the last 100 years, Ronald Wilson Reagan:

"When a Hollywood performer, lacking distinction even as an actor, can become a leading war hawk candidate for the presidency, only the irrationalities induced by war psychosis can explain such a turn of events."

No sale. MLK may have had an (R) next to his name but he was no Conservative by any stretch of its definition.

It’s obvious these politicians will do anything to get re-elected. They’ll turn on a dime and give you nine cents change. They don’t give a damn about this country. They only want to cash in.

Ross Perot, love him or hate him, once said the goal is
“To have a government where the elected, appointed, and career officials come to serve and not to cash in.” We’ve yet to find them.
