Free Speech – 01/19/11

C OOPER=CLUELESS

It’s clear that Mr. Cooper hasn’t spent much time in the South or else he’d be hightailing it here to set up residence. Has he ever wondered why so many northerners move here? Perhaps because it’s a better place to live than the northern climes. A friend once described northerners as “pinch faced” because of all their feelings of superiority over the South and their thinking they know it all. We in the South know, of course, that when a person has a choice of living here or north of the Mason-Dixon line, the South will win out. And, the “War Between the States” as Mr. Cooper seems to pooh-pooh, actually WAS a war between the states since the Southern states had seceded and were no longer part of the Union. Had we not seceded, it would have been a civil war, but we had. Thus, it was a “War Between the States.” If the North wants to secede this time, that’s fine with us. Just don’t hold your breath for us to issue a passport to you when you come to your senses and want to come visit or immigrate here.
