We all know this isn't true, so stop acting like it is.
Sheesh, don't have a meltdown. What exactly are you trying to tell me?

Never been to Oklahoma, so I can't help you there. Now Texas, it's not so much that it has a mixture of western and southern culture. Part of it sits in the west, part of it sits in the south, and part of it sits in Mexico, lol. Plain and simple. It's the most multi-cultural chunk of land in the world. Texas.

lol that's what I always thought too. Why can't every state just be simple? Better yet, why can't we all just call ourselves Americans and put aside what regions of the country we're from. Ultimately, we're all one big happy family...lol...well...happy isn't exactly what this thread says but we are a family nonetheless.

Who could argue with that?

Ahh - somebody called?
Just a note to mention that - down in South America - they call themselves "Americans".
and down in Central America - they call themselves "Americans".
So, uh, let's expand that notion of a "happy family"
into a bigger family
forever.
Doheye (Peace)

Okay people this is how it is -- the "South" is from Virginia (minus D.C) down to east-Texas.
And where the green turns to desert in Texas is where South ends and the Western Frontier begins. Got it?

The South to me is below D.C., bounded by the Ohio River, extending across the 36 degree line that is the Missouri compromise, down to East Texas. The Ohio River has long been a classical boundary between North and South.

Missouri is not the South, it's far more Midwestern. Sorry to break it to you. Oklahoma and Texas are both southern and western at the same time.
