    I'm so proud to B a North Carolinian !! Dave, I have lots of "glue remover" you can borrow to unstick yourself so U can move on. If ya don't want to B here, we don't want ya here. U R most likely one of those implanted yankees that came down here with all your moeny you mad up north wanting to change the SOUTH to fit your mindset of how life should B. Get over it !! Love it or leave it !!

    Obviously alot of you that are "stuck" here are not the bright one's. We have someone who could not find a better job than signing up for the military, which means he is probably a highschool reject that was forced to join the army in order to get out of his broken home. NC public test scores rank 27 out of 50 states. If the foreigner's were so bright they would "move on out". We don't like them here anymore than they like being here! Don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you!

    James you must be a native since you think reckon is a word.

    I agree with Dave. I'm stuck here because of the military and people from NC are drab.

    You're not. Please feel free to leave. I assure you no one will miss you. It would be sort of like flushing a #2 down the toilet!!

    If they are so smart then why are they stuck living here?
  • by N Location: Greenville on Jun 13, 2009 at 01:09 PM
    Dave, I beg to differ, I find that most North Carolinian's are very smart. Many of our schools have the highest record of graduating seniors and many of those schools meet AYP goals. Personally, I was born and raised in North Carolina and I hold a doctoral degree in education.

    Well, since "most North Carolinians" isn't supposed to have an apostrophe in it, I reckon that makes you a native.
  • by Dave on Jun 13, 2009 at 12:08 PM
    Well, since most North Carolinian's aren't very bright, the people chosen will have to be those born in other states who are stuck living here.
