So is Birmingham AL...does that mean it is in the Rustbelt?

Really? Let's be honest. How does a city in Upstate NY within 45 minutes of a Great Lake and that was largely based on manufacturing not get considered a Rustbelt city? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rustbelt

Can we keep this on topic please?

You responded to my post telling ME that I need to learn geography (I did not view that as a personal attack nor was I offended) and then I put a counter argument saying YOU needed to learn Rust Belt geography. I was not attacking you personally, merely offering a counter argument, and you are getting really touchy about this.

This is a debate, where people will not agree with everything you say. I think you need to calm down a bit, seriously. It's okay if you think the Sun Belt is better.

Not interested...sorry. You don't know how to have a discussion - only how to try and offend other people with fictional statements. It's not working and I don't care to go any further down that road with you or anyone else. Move on, please.

Well, I don't know...but the Rustbelt must stop somewhere, and it stops before it gets to Syracuse. The link you provided substantiates this.

*Is Philly, Chicago, Boston, New York, and D.C. rustbelt? I they are okay, if not some people need to read the thread title.
*I hear some talk about being environmentally friendly (or something close) and I just have to say that, "Stop the bs please?", it's ridiculous. I would put money on California having more people who care about the environment than the entire rustbelt...If you rustbelters really cared about the environment (we all know that you don't) than match your California counterparts who live in trees, and convert their toilet water into fresh spring (tasting) water, reuse their milk after eating cerael, who wash their hands and save the water so they can water their garden in their back yard, etc. Okay, I forgot what else that California family did but I bet the rustbelters on here don't care about the earth that much.

And? I'm sorry, but Syracuse isn't part of the Rustbelt.

Okay, did you forget about the Big 10? Our fans make your fans look like sissies (Although I will admit OSU has a prblem with FSU that is still unexplained....)
