29. Pardon me, but you've gotta be fucking kidding me
Get off your high horse. The South gets paid more attention than any other group. You don't hear about how Bush needs to win in New England. You don't hear about how the West is going to be a vitally important region come November. No, you hear about the South. Where have the greatest percentage of appropriations been designated in our lifetimes? The South. Where did 4 out of 10 of our Presidential candidates come from? The South. Who did the South wind up voting for? A New Englander.

Quit the garbage, "woe is me" rhetoric. It's misguided, ego-centric, and misinformed.
