WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Many different opinions on this thread.
Still like to see for myself though. Not worried about the retirees, but the crime and bad areas is what concerns me, deep in that right now so ready to get the h... out!
Looks like Winston is still the spot

OK YANKEES...This is why we stay so amused at you.

You want to come down here and enjoy the cheap taxes but you want the "specialized" schools your tax dollar paid for in NY. Ain't gonna happen, but bless your heart, anyway.

A typical Southern response...time to grow up, maybe "ya'll" might benefit from these type of schools. Bless YOUR Heart.

Oh, you love to throw "ya'll" around...don't you? I love the condescension dripping from your post. I've heard "ya'll" used by locals from NYC to L.A. to London, so don't act like it's still a regional reference. It's just a simple, abbreviated way to refer to a group of people that has caught on in every corner of the U.S. Some of us even call it a contraction.

Don't you think YOUR children deserve these kinds of schools?

Why so defensive? So rude.

You and All.

What gets me is when they then say "All Ya'll"

Maybe those schools might not be a bad thing after all.
