Apparently the three most Northeastern counties of Ohio (near Cleveland) are officially part of Appalachia now. Yes - Lake Erie now has Appalachian beachfront property...

Link (http://www.wkyc.com/news/state/ohio/news_article.aspx?storyid=97538&catid=23 - broken link)

Soon the entire Rust Belt shall be ours. I say we continue our military assault and invade Philly and NYC. Then we can elect Uncle Jim Bob mayor of New York....then it's only a matter of time before a good 'ol boy from the holler is president. Yes...it's all going to plan...


Seriously though, I think it's rather odd that Appalachia is apparently growing. WTF? Is it like economic misery by osmosis or something? Perhaps they will blame the deindustrialization of that region on Appalachian influence in the history books.

General Phoenix reporting for duty, SIR! All is going well on the Western Front here out in Washington. Our troops are quite thin, but I'm receiving little resistance from the desert-faring people of Eastern and Central Washington. They are most hospitable, even to one such as myself, and I believe that the only way this area could be easier to conquer is if it was Canada itself.

I shall need supplies in two fortnights, however, and I am requesting at least two additional troops to aid me in my efforts here.


Status update: October 5th, 2008. Passage over the mountains shall be impossible, and I fear that, without proper supplies, the winter may be rather lean. The snows hit early and hard here in the Western Passage, and I will be completely surrounded by the snows in less than two months time. The rockies become even more impassable than the Cascade mountains, but we should be good so long as we hold fast through the winter. However, additional battalions will be required no later than May, however, after some of the snows have cleared to the east. Then our conquest may move forward.

Perhaps, for the upcoming winter months, we suspend operations in the Northwest, consolidate our gains, and await the thaw in six or seven months.

Instead, this might be the time to open a new front to the Southeast. We have much support in the region, from former Appalachinites who have migrated to the Carolinas and Georgia. With luck, we could occupy Charlotte, Atlanta, and possibly even Charleston and Savannah, thus providing us with access to the deep waters of the Atlantic.

I do believe, however, that a push further south than Jacksonville would be counterproductive, as we would then have to defend miles of worthless coastline, suitable only for spiders, alligators, and sawgrass.

I suggest that instead of 'forting up at Camden...we overtake 'Fire Island and send the inmates to Congress...after a few weeks of wine sipping on the Pelosi Farm, they will be ready to propose legislation that will benefit the under priviledged and non productive...

LOL! Thanks for the chuckle folks. Maybe I'll break out my sewing machine and start coming up with an appalachain flag so they'll know they've been conquered. I'm sketching a hawk clutching talons full of ramp, side order of pepperoni rolls. I'm open to suggestions.

Occupied appalachia... or 'the former state of ohio'. Hahahahaa Next they'll claim they've got 1/32 indian blood to qualify for no restrictions gambling.

This is a serious suggestion: Appliachian ...Hillbilly flags would be a seller...if they were funny...a 'roots thing...I would want one for a client...a recently graduated Penn State lad who is making his home here in Wv...He is still claiming Pennsy roots and I want to help him get over it...WVU flag on one side of the front door and a Wv Hillbilly Flag on the other...

That gambling? no indians are allowed...taken over by the 3rd generation Italians...don't you have a Hot Spot in the neighborhood? More 'Hot Spots than stop lights in Wv...

I thought we had already taken the Carolinas?

Only the western ridges... I don't think the coastal regions are part of Appalachia (yet).
