We must've been typing at the same time. I didn't realize it was a response to Ellie Mae, I didn't read all of her posts. However, I had been responding to something Sarcat had written and it had the same context, so I thought you combined a response to a few different posts, including mine. Sorry to sound nasty, guess I was being typical Joizy for a minute, huh? Please accept my apologies too.

I have lived on both coasts and I have traveled to most places in between. I believe I have probably met someone from every state in the US. I have found something good in everyone I have met. Ellie Maeís reference to the confederate flag set me off. There are many who are using it as a sign of rebellion something they think is cool, cause they have some Lynyrd Skynrd records, or they watched Dukes of Hazzard.

In some parts of the south that mind set is alive and well, but not everywhere, as some would like us to believe. I saw some of that growing up, but I never felt a part of all that.

Welcoming, Southern hospitality is alive and well in NC, so anyone who doesnít feel that probably brought it on themselves.

EXCUSE ME,.. I SAID "LIBERALS" and include the arrogant, moneyed people who think they are better than everyone else. The bay area people are the worst! These people move to a postage stamp, get a horse or two, know little or nothing about handling these animals, and now they are the "horsey-set" complete with attitude.

They really must know nothing about horses. All horses are herd animals and crave the company of their own species more than any other requirement of life. Even sweetest horse will go insane if isolated by itself.

I am enjoying reading your posts. I relate to them quite a bit.

Default To Whomever It May Concern

Look, I'm not from the south, don't know if I'll ever move to the South, but I'm catching on to why Red responded the way he did. Call me stupid or Yankee but what is Ellie Mae talking about regarding postage stamps and horses?

Ellie Mae - although I haven't half a clue what you're ranting about and although I'm not a "liberal" myself, I do detect a tad bit ( ) of hostility. You know, they say a branch that doesn't bend can break. Maybe you should accept some change here and there.

NYer, I imagine you can completely relate, we have the worst reps

Well, we both come from a very diverse area, and in our current lives others have us categorized, & we categorize others... but we don't see each other as "New Jerseyans" or "New Yorkers"... really we are seen as Jews or Catholics or Irish or as residents of such & such ritzy town or down & out housing project... with kids in This private school or on That sports team...

we have our own opinions on NY drivers or Jersey drivers (funny no one disparages the COnnecticut drivers!!) and on how rude & obnoxious people in other groups are

it will be weird to be seen as part of a big group of rude people, all lumped together!

I think you should move where you want to. If you find someone who doesnít like it, or you, too bad for them. Iím sure you will find more that accept you for who you are than not.
Take what iíminformed with a grain of salt. From what Iíve read from him I donít think he will ever be happy and any environment other than an area that is heavily populated by Greek immigrants.

The ďpostage stampĒ is a reference to the tiny piece of land that has a house and small yard for the horse. Some areas in CA have horses on less than an acre.
The red/blue state issue places anyone in the north east and west coast as a liberal. I know a lot of conservative and liberal people in CA. If you look at the percentages I think the dems got just over 50% last election and over 40% for repubs. So if you are from CA are you liberal, maybe, maybe not. Iím sure itís the same where you live.
