    raggie,
    About the 4x4 with the rebel flag:
    No disrespect but I would suggest watching the movie Gods and Generals to get just a very small understanding about why exactly the Civil War was fought. Their are many good books but the movie hits on a few of the reasons. Besides one of my best friends is in that movie. Not a big role but they do show him up close a couple of times.
    Most of us from the south had ancestors who fought in the Civil War. Some fought for good reasons and some fought for the wrong reasons. I would just suggest being careful labeling anyone with a Rebel flag on their vehicle as racist.
    Just food for thought and for the record the only stickers on my vehicle are NRA and Support our Troops.

    Edit to add: The south is not the only place you will find racism. Racism exist throughout the whole of the USA and the world.

    Pizza and Deli's? IMO, the very best are in New York.

    I like TooJays Deli chain, they are a little pricy but the sandwiches are pretty decent.

    The south has it's own cuisine. You just need time to adjust your taste [to things like Fried Chicken, Corn on the cob, various seafoods like shrimp, crawfish, catfish, etc ...].

    Then by all means, get the hell out.
    Anybody who calls someone a racist just because they have a rebel flag on their car is the one with a closed mind.

    Check it out raggie. That movie relays some of the sentiment of the Rebels as well as the Yankees for their reasons for fighting.
    If you watch it and see a red headed Rebel with red beard and small round hat defending Fredricksburg that is my friend Michael Thompson [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img].

    HA HA.. that brings me to a story:

    In a land far away.. where the heat is unbearable and the humidity is unreal... (Arizona)

    My family was on the way to the Grand Canyon and we stopped at a local gas station to fill the tank.(don't want to run out of gas on the deserted roads [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ) and guess what I saw?

    As I walked out of the gas station with a cold beverage (a neccesity) a redneck, by definition, was disembarking from his HUGE truck with his male offspring. Let us name this man: "Billy", let us name the male offspring "Bob".

    Billy was wearing some dirty, tattered pear of jeans and an old shirt with a Large sidearm. He appeared to be missing several teeth and I dont know when he took his last shower...

    Bob was wearing basically the same thing without the sidearm. He was, however, carrying a box full of little bulldogs. He took the box, dropped it directly next to the door of the gas station and began selling.. I repeat SELLING.. bulldogs to random folk. They were obviously raised for one purpose. ( dog fighting is very popular in the area, however illegal it is )

    My uncle and I did the impossible... we approached this person and asked him what he was doing and where he got the dogs from.. " I bred my dogs at ma house and sells them. That'n thar is woth $200 in the valley." My uncle gave him an awkaward look, he owns a bulldog (a particulary tame one), and we walked away to continue our voyage.

    -tom

    Ouch cornkid, the idea of dogfighting makes me ill. I love dogs, my cousin has a bulldog that is the sweetest, gentlest fellow I've seen.

    I'm a northern boy [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] grew up in Chicago and only moved to the "deep south" in the last few years. I was very pleasantly surprised by the people I meet here.

    certainly there are the uneducated and the uncouth and even the deluded and racists, but it's not like you might expect from watching too many movies [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] And I can't see that it's any worse than Chicago or places North.

    People come in all delusions where where you go [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] But overall I like the folks here, even some flying that other flag as it doesn't always mean to you what it means to them. Freedom of speech also means they are free to insult you, there is no law against being insulted...

    Well, i guess if you're expecting northern quisine in the South, then yeah, you'd be kind of disappointed, but having lived in four distinct parts of the US, New Orleans food is still as good as it gets. And i agree with imfrogman: a flag is hardly cause to label someone racist. But then, few things are easier than jumping to conclusions.

    It might be a good idea to reread Raggie's comments, before promoting the view that he called anyone racists for flying a rebel flag. He did complain of the racism there, but not in the same sentence as his comments about the rebel flag.

    I can't say that he counts rebel flags as racism, nor can I say he doesn't. No such connection was written there.

    From what I get from his post:
    He doesn't like the food in the south.
    He doesn't like the racism in the south.
    He doesn't like the choice some make in which flag to fly.
    He doesn't like the heat.


    If you've noted his writing at all, you're aware of his pride in the United States flag. I would imagine his displeasure in the flying of the rebel flag, would be his view that they are choosing it over the U.S. flag.

    You may or may not share his views. But, it would be better if your reasons to differ are based on what he wrote.

    Most of the food down South is way too salty for my tast. I have lived here a long time I am most likely a Redneck by many people's veiw point and that is fine by me. The rebel flag is veiwed by many I meen MANY even here in the South as a racist symbol. I fly OLD GLORY I do not get overly worked up when I see a full size pick up with big tires flying the Reb flag nor do I think every bald person is a racist Skin head but some are. Yep we got some here no joke.
    Raggie, just put some hot sauce on every thing cept maybe icecream and it will be good eats. My grandparents lived and died in Jonesboro most likely I will to I love the South
    but I understand that there are issues here as elsewhere I guess.

    Ahh, the Deli may be rare (or nonexistent) in the south, but by the same token there is no place in New York that you can get a pit cooked pulled pork sandwich (cheap white bread please) with home made slaw (O.K., I've never even been to New York, correct me if I'm wrong [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]).
    Now look what you made me do. I have to go home & light the cooker...

    Raggie, if you ever have the opportunity to visit NY then head out for Long Island. Lots of all-night greek delis with the largest selections I've ever seen in a restaurant. Good food, good prices. I pulled some late-night shifts working there and often wound up at one of those places. Yum.

    If that's not how Raggie meant it - which apparently it isn't - than my bad. It certainly seemed to be implied though. (smirk) Just as i didn't actually *write* that he did consider it racist, though i strongly implied it. And no, i don't have a clue who Raggie is to be aware of his pride in the US flag. I was going through the recent posts and i noticed the title. Seeing as how on a good day i connect at 24k - currently at 16.8 - i'm pretty selective in what i read.

    And yeah, Roy - go right ahead. There's more where that came from.

    Well empath, if you want to play that game, I suggest you re-read my post. I did not say raggie called anyone racist or promote the view that anyone with a rebel flag is racist. All I said was that anyone that called someone racist because they had a rebel flag is closed mind. Anyone could be well anyone. You incorrectly assumed that I meant Raggie, just as I incorrectly assumed that Raggie meant people with rebel flags were racist.

    Raggie, you are welcome to try out West - low humidity, good food (have you tried the Jell-o in Utah? Amazing stuff!), and beautiful mountains.

    Not a whole lot of discrimination, unless you count all the Mormon bashing [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

    Empath,
    Why not let raggie speak for himself? If I was wrong in my view that raggie thinks that someone displaying the rebel flag is racist then that is between him and me. He can tell me what he meant without you trying to read his mind and responding for him. Raggie and I have always gotten along just fine and I consider him my friend, and neither of us need anyone else to speak for us.

    Once a year here in Savannah we have the Jewish Food Festival and you can get all the corned beef and even tongue that you can eat. My mother in law, having been born in NYC has a thing for tongue and buys enough once a year to freeze and keep her happy all year long as thats the only time you can get it here.

    Personally I'll stick with the corned beef...

    There is only 1 good bagel shop in town and a couple of deli's that are worth visiting. So it just takes a little exploration and you find it [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] or just wait till this fall and come over to Savannah for the jewish food festival. They do know from deli afterall [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
