cman: TV's Vinnie: cman: TV's Vinnie: cman: Did you fail 4th grade a few times? That's the grade when you start learning about the revolutionary war. Social Studies IIRC is the name of that class. To say that the southern folks sided with the British is stupid.

http://www.loc.gov/teachers/classroommaterials/presentationsandactiv it ies/presentations/timeline/amrev/south/

Believing the loyalists were strongest in the South and hoping to enlist the slaves in their cause--an objective that seems incompatible with a focus on Southern loyalists--the British turned their efforts to the South. In fact, the British had some important military successes in the South. They occupied Savannah, Georgia, in late 1778 and Charleston, South Carolina, in May 1779. They also struck a disastrous blow on General Horatio Gates' forces at Camden, South Carolina, in August 1780.

Believing loyalists were strongest in the south does not mean that they sided with the Brits.

You lose. Good day, sir.

No, you lose because all you got was "cuz I said so!".

I asked you for a citation showing me that southern citizens supported the Brits. You instead gave me a link that showed because the Brits THOUGHT loyalist support was best in the south. All that was was a link of Brits and their military strategy. Please give me the citation that I asked for

Eventually that will lift you guys out of it. But not until there are enough of them to outvote you guys.


If their areas are awesome because of their politics then why don't they just stay there instead of spreading their derp... errr I mean enlightened liberal politics?

it's warmer in the winter...


Cuba is warm and is closer in terms of political thought to these folk.

They need to skip over the south and just move there instead. And hey, free healthcare too!

who are moving there mostly for the low cost of living, not good jobs. While retirees bring external cash into a community and  jobs providing them services they really don't contribute much as far a paying taxes or even caring about community issue such a schools.

I'm surprised more tightwads haven't moved to Mexico for an even lower cost of living. Are there laws saying they can't receive their Social Security or Medicare if they don't reside in the US?

StanTheMan: Rand Paul, an Ophthalmologist trained at Duke Medical School


Who made up his own ophthalmology board rather than get re-certified, appointed himself president, his wife (not a doctor) VP, and his father-in-law secretary. I mean could you even imagine the outrage of Obama just made up his own bar association and appointed himself President and Michelle VP. I can't even fathom the intensity of the right wing's reaction.

Anyway, Rand Paul is a joke.

enry: Obviously these states aren't conservative enough.


Right, liberals don't want to enforce the border, and want to increase immigration by like 50% and give amnesty to illegals, and want to throw Sheriff Joe in jail for trying to do something about it, but it's a conservative policy problem that there are a bunch of poor Mexicans in border states.

For the record, libtards, I'm not sure where HuffPo gets its maps, but blue state California has 14% of the country's population, but like 34% of its welfare recipients. And about 34% of the country's illegals. Hmm, there's an interesting correlation...

I've spent most of my life living in the South (although the past couple of decades in Central Florida don't count as any Southerner will tell you) but I grew up in the Redneck Riveria and spent half a decade in Birmingham.

There are a lot of great things about the South. Intellectual reckoning is not one of them.

Look, every non-Southerner needs to know this.

The South sucks. NEVER EVER move to the south. Stay in the North and the West and don't move to the South. If you're in the South and you think Clifornia is a well managed place, you need to move there ASAP. You're clearly wasting your talent there.

We really need to reverse this migratory trend of non-Southerners moving into Southern states as most clearly never heard of how bad it is there.
