Not if I can help it!

That's one of the reasons I don't want to go home.
Do you think Southerners are the only people who could love to be courteous, hospitable, talking "slow", enjoy conservative Biblical values, patriotism, gun owner's rights, fried foods, the great outdoors and slow cooked, wood-smoked BBQ?
(Granted, most Canadians and Northerners are not like this, but still... )

Well most Canadians are probably not like that; why else would we be famous for our liberal federal politics?

(I also should have put "probably" in front of "not like this")

Then again, statements like this can be proof that many Northerners not only would like to live in the South, but actually appreciate it and have no interest in changing it. (less reason to "hate" Yankees )

Red neck has arrived lookout you yankees

I never did see much sense in the silly north south debate, present day that is, people are people wherever you go, some talk & do things differently , foods may be different but i just don't see the big deal over it.

I have no desire, energy or drive to change anyone in the south, infact I agree with Southerners on many issues, but not all, but I do not go around telling them to agree with me or else they are fill in the blank here. I for one, am not arrogant and nor do I look down on southern people, or anyone for that matter, we all have our shortcomings, we aren't perfect, we are human, lets concerntrate on what is important in life, like living life, appreciating our families and cherising each day, cause we only have so many to live and nothing is guaranteed.

Nice discussion you guys are having here. Would be even nicer if you remembered to treat others the way you would like them to treat you. Try doing that from now on, please.
Yac.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being a Yankee. My sister who was born in OH, raised in CA, and has lived in TX now for 40 years used that term the other day referring to a man at our church who acted arrogantly. She said, "He's like a Yankee." The man to which she was referring is a born and bred Texan. I'm quoting; I dislike that terminology as well.

Anyway, I kindly said to her, "Please don't you start that Southern nonsense like I hear nearly every day." I told her everyone was different and that people from all parts of the country are nice or not so nice and she finally said, "I guess you're right."

Default Divine Mom--go Back To Where U Came From

The ignorance that you displayed by calling all southerners low class is disturbing. There are a lot of wonderful and educated people in the south. I have met great people from up north too. The truth of the matter is there are good and bad people everywhere. If you are unhappy in the south--do the rest of us a favor and leave. Your ignorant attitude reflects the mediocrity of your IQ.

Nothing is wrong with being a Yankee, just as nothing is wrong with being a Confederate. Be proud of your backgrounds and where you come from because you can't change them.
