Like I said in the other thread. Once I used your own methods of nonsense against you, you immediately retreated to calling it retarded.

Sit and think about it, buster.

Well, I'd say that some pretty good and accurate rules of thumb would be:

1. Actual geography and/or
2. History (were part of the Confederacy during the Civil War)

I mean honestly, it seems very clear cut to me.

In all honesty, I agree.

Maryland was Union and it is geographically northern. For example, it's above the "snowline", there is northern forestry, etc.

There were pro-confederates in Maryland, but there were also pro-confederates in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Kansas, Illinois, Indiana and even Rhode Island. There were also pro-unionists in Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Virginia, and Louisiana.

Here is my theory on $mk8795:

-This person is very in love with all things "Southern."
-This person is from or lives in Maryland.
-This person considers themselves and the state of Maryland southern because of various census designations, irrelevant old lines, various cultural points in the state...all combined with their love of all things "southern."
-Some people from the deep south at some points in this kids life, made fun of him/her and made him/her feel excluded or "un-southern" based on not being from what they perceived as "the real south."
-Based on years upon years of mental abuse, this person developed an almost reflex to defend his notion of this states perceived "southernness."
-This person developed very "Gollum" like tendencies...quoting the same lines consistently, capitalizing the 'F" in the word fact as to indicate that makes it more accurate, name calling, and general petulance to validate their point
-This forum provides an outlet for this person to argue in a safe environment.
-Therefore this person lives and trolls here.....


Good god...it all makes sense.

Maryland was a border state. The Emancipation Proclamation didn't even apply to Maryland. Slaves in Maryland were not freed till the war was over.
