This guy's full of shit, but at least he's passionate.

"Fuck the South," indeed.

Someone should tell him two of the most influential founding fathers were southerners (Virginians). One wrote the Declaration of Independance and the other chaired the Contitutional Convention (oh yeah he also led the Revolutionary Army and won the war). What an ignorant fool.

Young isn't American, assuming he didn't obtain U.S. citizenship and I missed the news.

I'm from Ohio and we feel the same way about those New England fuckwads was you do.

Man, I can almost feel the spittle hitting me in the face.
Here in Charleston, I notice there's a lot of those Yankees moving here because they can't stand their own kind back home.

I guess ignorant rednecks are not confined to the south.

I love the bile. It's eating them up.

Just more of that Democratic Tolerance and inclusion that those fine folks always brag about. Yep A good ol'fashion love rant from the left.

Mr. Nick Jehlen of Madison, Wisconsin, may be a brilliant Yankee, but he was dumb enought to put his real name in the WHOIS information for that website.

Check him out.

I guess that fine example of a liberal asswipe doesn't realize that if Texas were to secede and become its own republic, the arrogant cocksuckers in New York and Massachusetts would freeze in the dark.

Passionate wouldn't be my word of choice. More like, chaoticly insane. Each man to his own opinion . . .

I just invited this person to the South for a "conversation." These guys are good for talking and not much else. I'd love for this guy to come to the South, anywhere in the South, and spout that shit off. He'll have his head handed to him in no time.

Never mind that the first state to tell King George to shove off was who? New York? Uh no, they were to chicken shit to vote on the declaration initially, and were the last to declare independence. The honor goes to whom? That would be South Carolina.

Wow. Go figure. Twice.

http://www.historyplace.com/civilwar/

Who were the leaders in the Succession from King George? Southerners. Virginia was the first colony to propose succession to the Continental Congress. Not Massachusetts. Not Rhode Island. That message was brought by whom? Richard Henry Lee, none other than the father of Robert E. Lee.

These people understood oppression and the need for freedom from federal encroachment. I say nix the fed from ANYTHING that doesnít have to do with protecting the individual states. If the local states want to tax their constituents to death with all these pork projects, thatís sounds fine with me. Get the Fed back to where it should be, Protection. FEMA? Screw that, let people buy insurance if they choose to live down here in FL in the swamps. The gravy train is over? Hey, good, now maybe the Fed will go away.

Oh and you are paying for MY BRIDGES? What about that stupid fíd up project up there in Boston Replacing ĎGreen Monster IIí thatís gone over budget so many times theyíve forgotten what the original budget was. I mean the project, originally estimated at I think $2,600,000,000, cost something like $14,600,000,000. And I donít ever plan on going to Boston, so why do I have to pay for it? If people are stupid enough to wanna live near that many people, they can live with the consequences of that decision.

And we canít visit the Liberty bell and all that crap? I donít wanna visit a busted old bell or some stupid rock on the beach anyway. Iíd much rather the Blue Ridge. Heck I guess thatís one good use of federal money Iíve seen spent...

actually brett...young IS american..he's from greendale.....

Posted by: mr. helpful on November 8, 2004 01:32 PM

You do realize that the people in the south who wanted to keep slavery were democrats and that the republicans were fighting to end slavery or did you never take a history class? You alsdo realize that yes the states now that are northen blue states is where our country was founded, however if you stopped ranting all you as you put it ignorant ranting and read the whole Constitution and Bill of Rights you you would see that you are very wrong!!! Our forefathers put in place the 2nd Ammendment so that if people like John Kerry got into office with his liberal agenda to try and ban fire arms so that only the gov. has weapons that the average citizen can fight to protect himself. Those building you speak of in referance to the 10 commandments were not paid for by liberals if they were they wouldnt say May God Have Mercy On This Court at the top of every courthouse in America, look up sometimes its their!!!! Our founding Fathers were anything but liberal they believed in god and founded this country on Christianity and the freedom of religion not freedom from religion!!!!! you speak of these murder rates but I believe you are a bit misinformed. The 2 highest murder rates in America Belong to Blue voters, that is New York and Washington D.C.. Here is a little food for thought
The truth

Population of counties won by: Gore=127 million Bush=143 million Square miles of land won by: Gore=580,000 Bush=2,2427,000 States won by: Gore=20 Bush=30 Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore=13.2 Bush=2..1

You talk about the people of the South being self righteos and high and mighty yet you seem to be doing the same thing!!! Why is your opinion more important than someone elses? Because you live in blue state? What is the most expensive state to live in in the country? You complain about having to pay for things in the south however you are a liberal democrat which means you dont think people can take care of themselves and want the gov. to pay for everything for them. Welfair universal healthcare etc. if you are against giving money why do you vote Democrat?Ill give you a hint its a blue state and very liberal!!! Its California!!! If you want a socialistic society then you have every right to vote that way but dont criticise people for wanting to have a democracy!!! I know this will be hard for you to read as i dont use the f word in my rant but you do it to take away attention of your lack of facts and own ignorance to history!!!!

I was going to post the same info that Steve H. posted.

NEIL YOUNG IS FROM CANADA!!! HIS ALBUM IS GREENDALE AND ITS A FICTICIOUS PLACE IF I RECALL!!! HIS DAD WAS A WELL KNOWN SPORTS WRITER IN CANADA!! IM NOT SURE IF HE BECAME A CITIZEN BUT HE IS MOST DEFINATELY BORN AND RAISED IN CANADA.

Posted by: Nate Grignol on November 8, 2004 04:55 PM

er..nate..calm down dude. i know that neil young is a canuck and i know greendale is his latest cd and is fictitious.....i was attempting to be...er...ironic....or was it satiric? i get them terms confused...

here's the foundation of my pathetic attempt to be humourous:

1. acidman links to a vitriolic website condeming the south.

2. from my history i know that neil young made disparaging remarks about the south a long time ago...remarks that were immortalized in the song "sweet home alabama" by lynrd skynrd. therefore i thought it might be funny to suggest neil young wrote the piece that acidman linked to. these are the kinds of things one thinks are funny at 3:30am. i figure people would make the connection immediately and chuckle. apparently noone made the connection...my bad.

3. brett jumps in with unrelated information about how neil young isnt even american which i assume means young couldnt have written and posted to that website. i decide to pretend that young is, in fact, from america and grew up in a place called greendale which is fictitious and is the title of his latest cd which is a vicious screed against all things americana. NOW i figure everyone will make the connection and the chuckles will begin. no one makes the connection....my bad again.

4. nate jumps in and helpfully reminds everyone that young isnt american and greendale is fictitous and he does so in caps which drives the point home with predictive force.

like france, i surrender.

If it is any consolation, Mr. Helpful, I thought to was funny. Just Damn!

Sorry Mr. Helpfull I didnt realize I was typing in all caps until I posted it! Im at work and evrything has to be in all types so I apologize!!! I honestly wasnt trying to emphaticly drive my point home!!!!Im also sorry that I didnt pick up on the joke but forgive me its been a long day after a long weekend!!!! I used to be a big Neil Young fan but after reading some of his actual comments I dont see me being a fan anymore!!!!

Posted by: NATE GRIGNOL on November 8, 2004 06:31 PM

If we go to war on the Dems,...I'm in Michigan...I'll gladly be an Insurgent!! Arrogant holier than thou Liberals!
fuck em!

Posted by: Mark on November 8, 2004 08:52 PM

no worries there nate but thanks for the explanation anyways. it's all good. neil young's music is good to listen to...his thoughts and ideas about life and how to live it arent.

Not that I advocate slavery. It is contrary to Christian thought BUT

Hmmm... FatCat thinks the North is finally receiving it's long overdue reward for waging war on the South.

So sorry, you lying sacks of Yankee horse manure, you fought to keep us in the Union and NOW YOU ARE STUCK WITH US. Cry me a river!!!

Posted by: FatCat on November 9, 2004 03:45 PM

Dear Southern Brothers,

Please do not condem all of us northsiders on the idiocy of one, particularily on who resides in Moscow East. I mean, ya'all gave us Al Gore and we don't blame you.

Indeed, if you take a lookee here....

http://www.uselectionatlas.org/USPRESIDENT/pe2004USA_sm.html

.... you can see that that we up here is Wisconsin (Wess-consin to haughty left coasters) are closer to the norm than this twit in Mad-city attempts to portray. (Note: in that map blue=Bush, see explanation on homepage)

Now if you want to talk fishin', well I guess that'll be ok. and btw, SRV is still my favorite southerner.

When the Blue States depart the Union and the Civil War starts, I will gladly be a spy for the Red States up here in New York....I do enjoy busting all the liberals balls up here...not very sporting though....like shooting fish in a barrel.....

Posted by: Oliver Box on November 9, 2004 08:12 PM

Fuck the yankee sunuvabitch.

Pardon the french, ladies...and no offence meant to all the good folk of the red state north....

Still,...surprisingly enough, I ended up laughing over that article. The historical errors are too sophomoric to be the result of anything but a closed-minded
northeastern education, and the underlying delusions of superiority too deep
to be reached by rational argument, so I figured hell, look at it this way:
Anytime we can be a burr in this type yankees' hide, then I have had a good
day.

Hee Hee and God Bless Dixie!
