I am from the state of Maryland and I have more room to talk about Maryland being a Southern State but yet you would raise hell if people denied Louisiana and Texas not being in the Southeast by referring the two as South Mid-West......
You know absolutely nothing of my experiences.

Of the two of us, you are the one who is constantly making crap up.

I have more experience in western Maryland than I do in Baltimore, and I've never even been to DC.

You are constantly accusing me of "hating Maryland" despite the fact that I have never spoken a single ill word about it.

You are impossible to reason with.

I think you have state-related hatred issues, not me.

If you look at the states south of the Mason Dixon Line, it would have to be Maryland. If you count Texas as a Southern state then its also the least Southern. When I visited Dallas there were hardly anyone with a southern or even a Texan accent and it truly felt like an anywhere city with national and international dominant influences. Most of South Texas feels like Mexico. West Texas and parts of the Panhandle feel more Western than Southern.

the southern half of Florida is also extremely non-Southern, especially Broward and Miami-Dade Counties. The Keys feel like part of the Caribbean in the United States (that is actually my favorite part of Florida).

However you are stating that you have not been through the state of Maryland in which your opinion of Maryland being Northern is ok for you but it can not ever be a Fact because Maryland is a Southern State and I am a Maryland citizen so I have more room to say that.....

Referring Maryland as a Yankee state in your context is like saying that Maryland is not deserving of being part of the south but let someone argue against Louisiana and Texas being part of the south you and others would raise pure hell.

I don't hate Louisiana its a very nice historic state with delicious gumbo and cajun sea food.......

Sure I don't care for some of the politics that goes on in Maryland but that does not take away from the Fact that Maryland is a Southern State.........

Proof that you aren't listening at all and do nothing but make sweeping assumptions. You literally just proved my point about you with this one sentence.

That is not what I am referring to when I say "making crap up." Oh no, you've given me a perfect example of that right here in this very post. Let's read on.

I have said repeatedly that I have been to Maryland several times. I have friends in Cumberland, I know Hagerstown fairly well, I have been to Baltimore and Annapolis. I Have been through Maryland many, many times. I have simply not been to DC.

That is what I mean by you making crap up.

You are assuming I mean Yankee as an insult. You are making assumptions. Unfounded assumptions. That is all on you.

As far as your second argument, of course we'd raise hell. That'd be utterly ridiculous to not include Louisiana and Texas in the south. Maryland on the other hand is more like Pennsylvania than Virginia. Even in the rural west.

I do not take any offense at it at all. Once again, you are reflecting your own negative and aggressive points of view off of me.

I do, however, strongly disagree with you and "them".

I didn't say you hated Louisiana. I think you hate Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Since you just can't seem to accept the, as you like to repeat, fact that Maryland is more in line with the north politically, culturally and climatically.

I'm sorry that you can't accept reality.

At the end of the day Maryland is still a southern state and no amount of arguing is going to erase that Fact......

Maryland and Texas are both southern states. Nothing anyone says can alter that fact.

Correction: "EVERYTHING SOUTH OF PENNSYLVANIA, OHIO, INDIANA, ILLINOIS, AND NORTH OF MEXICO, THE GULF, AND THE CARIBBEAN IS SOUTHERN" which is a Great thing because it makes the South very Diverse and I am a Full believer in Diversity..........
