M5, what are you thinking? The south is full of mosquitoes, snakes and alligators and some of the snakes are highly poisonous. And then the weather, there's hurricanes and tornadoes every week.


All of that is nothing compared to a snowbird that comes here wanting to impart their way of life on US .


Yep. I still remember a bumper sticker I saw back in the early '80s. It said "I don't care how you did it up north"

True Grit, you forgot fire ants but thats what makes us tough as nails. My folks did it with no AC. Makes Southerners, atleast Texans, a little hard headed, stern and not willing to back down, and IMO not a bad thing. But also willing to give you the shirt off our back when you need help, broke down on the side of the road etc... I lived up North for a brief time. Different culture for sure. Watched the greyhound busdriver get out of the bus and get into a fight with another motorist. Clam chowder, Iced tea out of season bla bla bla... Give me the South anytime.

Really?!?
Wow, how quickly we forget. Out of all the countries of the world the USA experienced 2 of the largest
and most rapid internal migrations in All of History, (that were not motivated by execution or starvation.)
All by people leaving the South to relocate to the North.

From 1916 -1930 1.6 million Americans migrated from the South to the North.
Then from 1941-1970 they were followed by an additional 5 million Americans leaving the south to go north.
Hard to believe southerners are so uneducated about their very own recent history. (Less than 100 years)

Yes. In fact there is an entire collection of country music based on that mass movement from the rural south to the industrial north.

Help. I am racking my brain:

What is the name of this song?

At day, I make the cars, at night I make the bars...

Tears fell on mother's nose as she read the things I wrote...son we love you and we miss you...come on home.

I think those lines come from the same song. Many country songs lament the movement of poor southern folks to the north.

500 Miles by Bobby Bare. I got the chance to see him and Jerry Reid together at the Little Nashville Opry in Brown County Indiana.

Interesting note, Jerry Reid was invested in some oil wells in my area, he was a regular visitor around here for a while.

Its all about perspective on what you view as southern. I did have a great great great grandfather that moved to NY, too bad it was against his will and died in prison there along with many other patriots from that time.

We'd send some more if they'd go. The demographics would sure be different in the the south today if we could.

The Americans that migrated weren't Sent... They Left.
