The southern cities like Miami, Atlanta, Jacksonville, etc, have improved, but will never be a NYC or Chicago (in more ways than one). So keep pretending that Atlanta will one day be a NYC, but at that point Id say youre delusional.

I lived in the south (TN) for a few months, and its all I could stomach. The work ethic, pay rates, and housing in the south is horrible. Absolutely horrible. You wonder why homes in TN cost $70,000? Its because a $10 an hour job is considered "good" in most areas. And the homes are cheap junk, I wouldnt buy 80% of the homes I saw in TN due to shoddy build quality and lack of basements. I wouldnt want to live in that tornado-strewn part of the country with no basement to retreat to.

The south is Dollar General, while NYC is Tiffanys. Catch my drift?


What a crock of BS. You are delusional. I have lived in your treasured North and it surely wasn't anything to get excited about . So damn happy to be back in good country I could do back flips. And good bye to you , the South did not beg you to come, and I am certain most people are glad that you are gone because they did not want you in the first place. Oh, and I get your drift" and it is so off base it is pitiful. You just have to put down other places to make yourself feel better about your own miserable existence.

Exactly. Disenchanted Norther transplants are moving north. I hear a lot of buzz about Northern New England and the Mid West.

The Pacific North West is attracting young people in droves. As is Colorado.

It's already changing.

Good post!

Im sure the south is glad Im gone, too. Heaven forbid someone showed up with an education and strong work ethic. I would'nt want to make "y'all" feel uneasy now, "y'hear"?

The amount of interstate migration has slowed down quite a bit.

Most of the south's gains will come from the residents being more fertile than the north.

LOL. Wishful thinking. I'm sure that most were more educated than you seem to be. You hear? Ignorance is forgivable. Get a decent education, and try again.

BTW the bold type above proves that you are not well educated. Educated people know better.

Are you freakin' serious?

Northerners YELL. Bold type means we are SHOUTING AT YOU or EMPHASIZING a point. Understand?

Also, much of the south's growth, can be attributed to the fact that they marry younger, and have larger families. Or they don't marry and have a bunch of kids anyway.

Then repent and repeat.

Oh, so THAT'S what bold type means? It's a Northern thing? Wow. I learn something new and important every day in C-D forums. And here I thought all Northerners were just more educated, logical, and reasonable, and therefore had no need to shout or yell in order to get a point across. Noted.

And you are absolutely right about marrying younger and having more kids being the number one factor in Sunbelt growth rates. I had a feeling everybody has been lying about all that "more affordable housing and job availability" jive.

Gotta love how the civil war still rages on, 150 years later, in C-D forums. Makes me that much happier I live on the West coast.
