Default I am new to this site

Hi, I am new to this site, do not really know how to navigate it yet, but may I also add, that my family and I are very nice friendly Christian people from New Jersey, I have 3 GOOD kids, no drugs, drinking, nothing to that effect. I do not care for the disrespect we get in certain rural sections of Kentucky. Shelbyville included. Some people are nice, until they hear our NY/NJ accents, most are wonderful people, please why not change attutide toward us, stop calling us names, telling us to leave... It's a free country. It also boosts your economy, by us spending our money $$$$$$$$ and yes, we do have ALOT of it!!!! from working and living in "The MOST EXPENSIVE STATE TO LIVE IN, WITH HIGHEST WAGES," moving to your beloved home state. We are doing you a favor.

STOP THE HATRED, AND GET REAL... WE ARE HAVING A MAJOR RECESSION, AND SO MANY PROBLEMS IN THE US. WE ARE ALL AMERICAN'S, REGARDLESS OF WHAT PART OF THE COUNRTY WE ARE ORIGINALLY FROM. I ALSO MUST THANK EVERYBODY THAT STOOD UP FOR WAZZUP, AS I ALSO FEEL THE SAME. NOW, DON'T GET ALL HUFFY, AS YOU ALL KNOW THIS IS TRUE!!!!! WHY SO DEFENSIVE??????

TO THE PEOPLE THAT SAY: "YANKEE GO HOME." YOU SHOULD GO LIVE ON A DESERTED ISLAND, SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE EAST, OR HOW ABOUT SPENDING A WEEK IN IRAQ????? THAT MAY DO YOU SOME GOOD!

ALL OF YOU WHO SAY, YANKEE GO HOME, ARE YOU TOO AFRAID OF US???? Wazzup told u, your state is gorgeous, so why not accept a compliment. Again, I must thank everybody that is a decent/moral person here. There are so many charming people in Kentucky. It is the ignorant one's that give KY a bad also a backward reputation, allover the US. Too many closed minded people. Such a shame... So many Christians', well why not start acting more like Christians? God loves everybody! I thought this was more of a midwestern state also.

WAZZUP IS NOT ANY SORT OF HACKER, OR TRYING TO TAKE OVER YOUR SITE, WOW! She has every right to express her thoughts same as we all do! I have no idea where this will end up, as again, I am new to this, yet, after reading some posts, I was astonished, shocked, and horrified, by some of the reactions to one person's opinion. Don't even bother to answer, as I will never be back to this site ever again! ADIOS! To YOUR IGNORANCE, REBELS!!!!!!!! YOU LOST THE CIVIL WAR, LOL!!!!! WHO CARES ANYWAY?????? P-L-E-A-S-E!!!! OMG! 2009?????? WAKE UP!

my goodness, now we have cybersquatters and mind-readers that OWN the site ??

what's with the name-calling ?

the poster is not alone, his/her sentiment can be supported not only in KY but in GA, TN, and MS- I've certainly heard that crap before, so it's not a bunch of 'complaining northerners' who dream this stuff up
I agree with you! thank you!

I am a so called "Yankee" and yes, live in Shelbyville, and have also been treated with disrespect, due to where I am from. So, there, do you actually think you are the only person that lives here????? Not every person from the east coast writes on this forum. Thanks REBEL!

But i guess it still is in many other parts of the state. All i can say is that this is old, old hat..... Let's all just be americans and concentrate on getting this country back on its feet again.

thank you!!!!!! I agree with you!

idk why you people are so obsessed with thinking Kentucky is a southern state. When I think of soutehrn states I think of Louisiana, Mississippi etc.... Kentucky has very little in common with these states. Im sorry people but Kentucky as a whole is not Southern. Just ask someone from a true southern state.
