An Explanation Of Many Kinds.
There's probably this notion out there that I don't like Yankee's. This is not so. Some of my best Army Buddies were from up North. I'm loyal freinds to someone from Up State New York(Shout out Amy!). If their good people then that's fine. In time they may grasp The Southern Thing, and certainly as long as their not Carpet Baggers. The modern day Carpet Bagger comes and pushes his way into your culture, imposes his values(or lack there of) onto you. All this time he's looking down his nose at you while turning the place into what he tried to escape.* Some are even from the South, but, Suburbia. All Rural area's are plauged with this, North and South.
I don't consider all people from north of the Mason Dixon Line Yankee's. For instance people from out west are just Non Southern. Doesn't mean that their bad people, just more of a tendancy for forms of Heatheness. If that's a word.
But, if I was to point my finger at Non Southerner's and Yankee's I'd have three more pointing at me.
I just felt it needed some explaining.
I'm planning on adding some links. A couple of Blogs, local Papares and Rock Bands. I wanted a DBT Banner, but, there not small enough. I don't link other Mil Blogs because there's a ring you can hit spin on when ever you want. I don't want anyone to think I'm endorsing some one either. wich leads me to a post by Alway's Question. He noted that he links for both left and right sided Blogs. "This is how dito heads of all ideologies become inbred in their thinking", he said. I agree, as I commented wer'e often preaching to the quire.
I was tempted to go see Hank3 play in Asheville tonight. Just the first half, but, there is packing to do for Ft. McClellan this week and I better hang onto some cash. Not that I spend much, but, going on Oders for 26 day's, I better be prepared. I'm leaving Tuesday afternoon. I don't know how often I'll be able to post. There's tow Transplantavanians, other wise known as my Dad and Brother, an hour or so down the road, so, that's a possibility. I may do a journal type thiing like I did at Ft. Lewis. Though I feel a majot Hill Billy Rave coming on...
If your just stopping in, dance around the campfire, hang around a while. If you want to hang out, read my first post, Kituah. Don't worry it aint long.
* an almost mirror coment I made on The Peanut Queens Blog. I found her through Sage. Go check them out.
It has often been observed that something of the frontier still lingers on in the culture of the South. Partly this came about becauseof the isolation of the South during the Civil War, and partly it is because of the bitter poverty in the South for many decades afterwards. Southerners continued their frontier ways after such ways were abandoned elsewhere becuase they could not afford any other. Is it stretching things too far to see a hint of the Southeastern Indian in some of their heritage? Is there something of it in the Southerners love of hunting and fishing? And is there something of it in the Southerner's admirattion of wild and reckless bravery?
