F**k the South
A Disgruntled Massachusetts Voter Gets It Off His Chest
by Anonymous

Johnny Ryan:
F. the South. F. 'em. We should have let them go when they wanted to leave. Fighting for the right to keep slaves--yeah, those are states we want to keep. And now what do we get? We're the f-ing Arrogant Northeast Liberal Elite? How about this for arrogant: the South is the Real America? The Authentic America. Really?

'Cause we f-ing founded this country, a-holes. Those Founding Fathers you keep going on and on about? All that bullsh** about what you think they meant by the Second Amendment? Who do you think those wig-wearing, lacy-shirt-sporting revolutionaries were? They were f-ing blue-staters, dickh**d. Boston? Philadelphia? New York? Hello? Think there might be a reason all the f-ing monuments are up here in our backyard?


No, No. Get the f. out. We're not letting you visit the Liberty Bell and f-ing Plymouth Rock anymore until you get over your real American selves and start respecting those other nine amendments. Who do you think those f-ing stripes on the flag are for? Nine are for f-ing blue states. Get it? We started this shit, so don't get all uppity about how real you are, you Johnny-come-lately "Oooooh, I've been a state for almost a hundred years" dickh**ds. F. off.

Arrogant? You wanna talk to us Northeasterners about f-ing arrogance? Maybe I wouldn't be so f-ing arrogant if I wasn't paying for your f-ing bridges, bitch. All those federal taxes you love to hate? It all comes from us and goes to you, so shut up and enjoy your f-ing Tennessee Valley Authority electricity and your fancy highways that we paid for. And the next time Florida gets hit by a hurricane, you can come crying to us if you want to, but you're the ones who built on a f-ing swamp. "Let the Spanish keep it; it's a shithole," we said, but you had to have your f-ing orange juice.

The next dickwad who says, "It's your money, not the government's money" is gonna get their ass kicked. Nine of the 10 states that get the most federal f-ing dollars and pay the least... can you guess? That's right, motherf-er, they're red states. And 8 of the 10 states that receive the least and pay the most? It's too easy. They're blue states. It's not your money, a-holes, it's f-ing our money. What was that Real American Value you were spouting a minute ago? Self reliance? Try this for self reliance: Buy your own f-ing stop signs, a-hole.

Let's talk about those values for a f-ing minute. You and your Southern values can bite my ass because the blue states got the values over you f-ing Real Americans every day of the G.d. week. Which state do you think has the lowest divorce rate, you marriage-hyping dickwads? Can you guess? It's f-ing Massachusetts, the f-ing center of the gay marriage universe. Yes, that's right, the state you love to tie around the neck of anyone to the left of Strom Thurmond has the lowest divorce rate in the f-ing nation. Think that's just some aberration? How about this: Nine of the 10 lowest divorce rates are f-ing blue states, a-hole, and most are in the Northeast, where our values suck so bad. And where are the highest divorce rates? Care to guess? Ten out of 10 are red-ass, we're-so-f-ing-moral states.

But two guys making out is going to ruin marriage for you? Yeah? Seems like you're ruining it pretty well on your own, you little bastards. Oh, but that's okay because you go to church, right? I mean you do, right? 'Cause we get to hear about it every goddamn year at election time. Yes, we're fascinated by how you get up every Sunday morning and sing, and then you're f-ing towers of moral superiority. Yeah, that's a workable formula. Maybe us Northerners don't talk about religion as much as you because we're not so busy sinning, hmmm? Ever think of that, you self-righteous assholes? No, you're too busy erecting giant stone tablets of the Ten Commandments in buildings paid for by the Northeast Liberal Elite.

Well this gravy train is f-ing over. Take your liberal-bashing, federal-tax-leeching, Confederate-flag-waving, holier- than-thou, hypocritical bullshit and shove it up your a**.

And no, you can't have your f-ing convention in New York next time. F-off.

The above rant is from the website http://www.fuckthesouth.com. The author is a member of the Northeast Liberal Elite and is f-king done being a scapegoat for the Republican Party.

as the bulk of the revolution came from Virginians.

The "BILL OF RIGHTS" was a near clone of the Virginia Declaration of Rights.

The author of the D of I was a Virginian.

Our RW military commander, George Washington, was a Virginian.

The father of the COTUS, James Madison, was a Virginian.

The 1st, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th presidents were all southerners.

Me myself i am thinking fukk the bible belt.
madMac.
The earliest known usage of the term "Bible Belt" was by American journalist and social commentator H.L. Mencken, who in 1924 wrote in the Chicago Daily Tribune: "The old game, I suspect, is beginning to play out in the Bible Belt."[2]

The name "Bible Belt" has been applied historically to the South and parts of the Midwest, but is more commonly identified with the South. In a 1961 study, Wilbur Zielinkski delineated the region as the area in which Baptist denominations are the predominant religious affiliation. The region thus defined included most of the Southern United States, including most of Texas and Oklahoma in the southwest, and in the states south of the Ohio River, and extending east to include central West Virginia, Virginia south of Northern Virginia, and parts of Maryland. In addition, the Bible Belt covers parts of Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, and Ohio. A 1978 study by Charles Heatwole identified the Bible Belt as the region dominated by 24 fundamentalist Protestant denominations, corresponding to essentially the same area mapped by Zielinski.[3]

Tweedie (1978)[4] defines the Bible Belt in terms of the audience for religious television. He finds two belts: one more eastern that stretches from central Florida through Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, Georgia, North and South Carolina, and into Virginia; and another that is more western, moving from central Texas to the Dakotas, and concentrated in Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Kansas, and Mississippi.

Notably absent from this belt are the areas of:[citation needed]

St. Louis, Missouri (majority Roman Catholic and large Jewish population)
South Florida (mostly Roman Catholic, Jewish, and secular)
Austin, Texas (mostly a secular city; has the lowest church attendance rate in the entire South)
South Texas (majority Roman Catholic)
Houston, Texas (a religiously diverse city; most religiously diverse city in the South)
New Orleans, Louisiana (majority Roman Catholic)
Mobile, Alabama[5] (majority Roman Catholic)
Cajun Country Region (majority Roman Catholic[6])

<span style="color: #000066">They had no complaints when Republicans in 93 tried to include mandatory health coverage of all citizens, either. Now, the same damn Republicans who had their names on that effort, are screaming socialism, and sueing. LMAO!

No complaints about Bush's 7 Trillion dollar Prescription drug program, which was, and is still, a mess, as is NCL Behind, neither of which is successful, and neither of which was paid for.

Mitt Romney's state plan includes mandatory insurance, as well. They had to make changes to improve that plan, as they went, just as we will with this one, but most of those folks like their plan.

I think it is just great, that the reforms against insurance companies using pre-existing conditions to refuse care, dropping their subscribers when they are ill, removing expensive subsidies for the cadillac plans, which the rich loved, but which were paid for with everyone elses taxes, another Bush F-up, and allowing families to keep their adult kids on their plans far longer, all are great advantages to all Americans.

As time goes on, and people realize the advantages included, the public opinion will improve.

People don't like change, in general....but change is what most Americans voted for, and as people reap more of the benefits, they will be more approving. That is already beginning to happen.

Do you suffer from selective memory, or do you just enjoy lying? I know two of us who were very vocal about the spending on the drug program, and have also been saying for a long time that the federal government has no business being involved in public education, as that is a local and state issue.

Again you avoid giving an answer.

Let me put it like this.
From day one of Obama's Presidency, all you RW/Cons/Republicans have called him a Socialist because he said that would be good for the country if the wealth was distributed more evenly.

link (http://www.politicaldebris.com/2008/10/barack-obama-and-wealth-distribution.html)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> October 28, 2008|Maeve Reston and Seema Mehta, Reston and Mehta are Times staff writers.

POTTSVILLE, PA., Addressing a boisterous crowd in eastern Pennsylvania, John McCain said Monday that Barack Obama wanted to be "Redistributionist in Chief," putting a new twist on his warning that the Democrat intends to "spread the wealth around," as he told Joe the Plumber.

McCain's new turn-of-phrase came after his campaign unearthed an obscure, 7-year-old radio interview in which Obama discussed the issue of wealth distribution as it related to the Supreme Court and its decisions under Chief Justice Earl Warren.</div></div>

The same people who are now complaining have in fact benefited for years under a Socialist system.

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Federal Taxing and Spending Benefit Some States, Leave Others Paying Bill

New Mexico gets $2 for every dollar in taxes, New Jersey only 61 cents

For more information, contact: Nate Bailey at (202) 464-5102.

WASHINGTON, D.C., October 9, 2007-Some states feast at the expense of others, according to the Tax Foundation's latest annual analysis of federal taxing and spending patterns.

Using newly released Fiscal Year 2005 spending data from the Census Bureau's annual Consolidated Federal Funds Report, the Tax Foundation compared the federal tax burden in each state with the amount of federal spending in each state. The result is a ranking of which states got the best deal in 2005 from Uncle Sam's tax and spending policies.

"All taxpayers know that the federal government uses tax and spending policy to redistribute income from citizens with high incomes to those who make little," said study author Curtis Dubay, a Tax Foundation economist. "Citizens are less aware of geographically based income redistribution."

Dubay continued, "High-income states cannot hope to receive back from the federal government more than they send in federal taxes because of the progressive nature of the federal income tax. Since the tax structure is unlikely to change, and federal spending is largely on auto-pilot, donor states are almost certain to keep sending more to Washington than they get in return."

Some states' high ratios have a clear spending-related cause. The large number of retirees collecting Social Security in Florida increases the flow of federal funds. An even bigger difference is created by the disproportionately large federal grants funneled to Alaska and the District of Columbia. Virginia and Maryland benefit greatly from their proximity to the capital in salaried federal employment. Alaska, Hawaii and New Mexico also receive disproportionately large sums in this category.

During fiscal 2005, taxpayers in New Mexico benefited the most from the give-and-take with Uncle Sam, receiving $2.03 in federal outlays for every $1.00 the state's taxpayers sent to Washington. This first-place finish is nothing new in New Mexico which has perched atop this list for many years. Other big winners in 2005 were Mississippi ($2.02), Alaska ($1.84), Louisiana ($1.78), and West Virginia ($1.76).

2005's biggest loser was New Jersey, which received 61 cents in outlays per tax dollar. Other low ranking states included Nevada (65 cents), Connecticut (69 cents), New Hampshire (71 cents), and Minnesota (72 cents).

</div></div> Check the figures here (http://www.taxfoundation.org/press/show/22659.html)

If Obama wanted to bring the country to its knees in order to take control, all he had to do was oppose the bank bail out.

We called him a socialist because his political agenda is a socialist agenda.

http://www.aim.org/aim-column/obamas-international-socialist-connections/

And if you had paid attention over the years, you would know that I have been against the redistribution of wealth that has been taking place for years. Every new federal program requires more government to take the tax money, and spend it the way they see fit. I would much prefer a smaller government focused on those things the constitution says they should be doing. And while it may be true that some areas benefit more than others from the distribution of tax dollars, we would all benefit far more if Washington just kept their hands off our money in the first place.

<span style="color: #FF0000">And that, exactly, if true, has what to do with the South?

If you are believing that under Obama, the gap between the poor and wealthy will change toward the poor, I have some wooden shoes to sell you.

Now, it may be true that some, like those who live entirely off the state, may see increases in money received, the working poor will not see any changes despite larger taxes on the well to do. They might be better off to ask that Obama slow down his campaign for Health care (notice how much more he is seen now that it is passed!) and do a little to address the jobs situation. I do mean somthing aside from adding 15,000 IRS agents or passing legislation that costs over $450K for every job produced.

I would never disagree that many will like the new health cvare bill, especially those who have never held a job and those who never intend to. The many others caught in between will have to wait and see what real benefits, aside from special job offers to congressmen who voted for the bill, are coming in the next few months. </span>

You're going to be burning up this summer. The South is in for a horrible drought. The West is in for major fires. It will be pleasant, and moderate in Maryland, however....winds variable, no hurricanes, no tornados, no droughts, no floods, and no neighborhoods full of foreclosed houses.[/color] /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif </div></div>

We've had enough rain the last couple of months, we just may be ready for a drought /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif For right now, I'm quite content with the beautiful days we've been having, generally mid to high 60's (sometimes 70's)... especially since I'm back doing landscaping!

Sack </div></div>

<span style="color: #000066">Me Too! I has been georgous here in Maryland the last three weeks, and perfect for gardening. Got some rain comig for the next several days, just at the right time. I've been planting more daylillies, and just watching everything come up from the last years, Irises, daylillies, Peonies, Foxglove, daffodils all in bloom, Forcythias blooming, Azaleas all full of bloom, except the late blooming ones, Seedum Aut. Joy, popping out, Rose Bushes all budding, climbers and bushes, I get the knock out roses, they are great, nothing eats them, and they bloom all summer right until the frost, hydrangias are all budding, and they are the Endless Summer ones, they too, bloom all summer, right until the snow falls! I have loads of Tiger Lillies, Hostas, over two hundred different types of daylillies, Tulips, Rododendrum Bushes, Clamatis Vines....Leaving loads of stuff out, Dogwoods and Cherry trees, but spring is a real thrill for me...

I'm installing a moss garden this year, with a neat path going into my woods, and a frog pond by my new gzaebo with windows, and screens, the view looks right up the creek, and I can sit in there and look at my gardens, and still see up the creek. Great spot for eating crabs, too.</span> /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

Wow... as much as I love landscaping... I hope you don't mind me saying I'm glad I don't have your yard on my list of work! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

I'm sure it's all very beautiful. I can just picture you out there all day, creating. There is a certain peace to doing that kind of stuff. Sometimes, just getting "lost" in the work. And then the sense of accomplishment when you look over what you've done over all that time, and it all grows and blooms. The whole thing is just... therapeutic I guess is the best way I can describe it.

Oh yes, so much so, and it is our creative life which I believe renews us and gives us the most pleasure in life, that and the wonderful times with our friends and family, and the love of our soul mate...

Nothing smells better to me than flowers and the smell of the earth when I"m gardening.

BTW, my gardens are mostly self-maintaining. With the right lay out, and the right amount of moss, which I am very lucky to have more than enough of, and can also proprgate with my "Grow more moss" recipe, Easy, since I live in practically a rain forest, and the moss likes it here.


For years I fought the moss, that wanted to invade parts of my lawn....then, finally, I just said to myself, OK MOSS! It's all YOURS! Easier to ride the horse the direction he wants to go, ya know?


But between my mossy areas, and stepping stones, and by planting various things which take over their locations, one can have a garden with very little weeding, and very little maintainance.

It's all in the Planning, and aiming for a no maintainance garden, and it is a real journey of learning how to lay out a garden, for the optimum beauty, and the lest amount of grunt work.

Since I'm so lazy, I'm good at figuring out the easiest way to do things. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

The first time my mother took me into a local greenhouse, the old fashioned kind with a dirt floor, and the tabled racks of loads of trays of flowers, I screamed and cried for an hour when we had to leave. I think I was two years old.

Next year, if my health holds up, I'm going to buy a greenhouse.

BTW, I had to laugh at Nancy Pelosi when they asked her what she wanted for her birthday. Did you see it?

I thought it was really cute, because she acted kind of embarrased anc coy, and sheepish about it when she replied, "Well, giggle giggle, I've always wanted a pool table." /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Some of us spend so much time raising kids, and working to get ahead in life, all of a sudden we're old, and for some reason, that's when we seem to get committed to take aim at having our most childish dreams, like Nancy's "Always wanted" pool table, and my Gazebo & moss gardens, and my "Always wanted" green house. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif

<span style="color: #000066">These days they are all dying out, friend. I worry about the frogs, and the honey bees. Corporations have poisoned our world so much, our animals, and the honey bees, are stressed and dying of.

One of the reasons why I'm turning most of my lawn, all except the fron lawn, into moss. All I have to do to keep it growing is watch it.

did you know you can put some dreid moss, and some sugar, just a little, and either beer or butter milk, and just spread it on where you want moss to grow? Kool huh? then you are not putting any ferilizers on so much of your lawn. It's all natural.

I don't worry about what is in the bible. Only Jesus's words have meaning to me.

I'm more worried about the frogs and the honey bees...and these Tea Party nuts....</span>

Actually, the two are not mutually exclusive. The best thing the government can do to help create jobs is to back off and let business do what businesses do. The more government intervention we have, the fewer jobs get created.
So yes, I am against more bigger government, and the government is absolutely not doing what they should to create jobs, which is get the hell out of the way.

Government regulation, while necessary, needs to be limited.
Since you brought it up, the credit crisis was a result of government meddling in the first place. Of course, we have to operate under the assumption that the consumer actually has a brain. Many don't. I have had credit cards (I no longer do) but I was selective about which ones I used, and how I used them. When the credit card companies started changing the rules, I had to decide if I still wanted to do business with them. I made a conscious choice that I didn't. Some people, for whatever reason, decided they wanted the instant gratification that credit offers, and were willing to accept the rediculous terms the banks were imposing.

Every time the government comes up with a new rule trying to limit profits, the banks will just find another way to make them. Individuals have every right to make their own decisions, and their choices will automatically regulate the companies they do business with. If I am willing to have a credit card at 6%, but cancel it if the bank decides to raise the interest rate, they no longer make money from me. They can either go back to 6%, or leave it and make nothing.

If the banks are taking advantage of anything, it is the ignorance of their customers.
