    Anyway, it's Southern politicians who lead the movement to increase corporate power, restrict constitutional protections, destroy nature, meddle in private lives and over-rule state courts. Seems like Southerners of today have looked at the worst aspects of the Yankees of 1861 and like what they see. Congratulations.

    I agree that AP classes and the number of Ivy League schools that accepted people is important. AP classes (you probibly will not have that option freshman year) knock out some credits so you can get more majors in college. The number of Ivy Leagues that accepted students is good b/c that means the school has a good reputation which does help a bit.

    Well they did lose. I have to agree on these points. According to my paper the New England Dems will filibuster the Artic Drilling. They interviewed Kerry and Clinton. I am pround of them.

    JustLikeAPill...never be ashamed of where you're born...just don't be overly proud of it, either. After all...where we are born is due solely to where our moms were at the time! You had no choice in the matter. My mom was in Kentucky.

    I'm not ashamed of being from the South...but I really hate the Yankee/Rebel thing. I work at a University, and I hear plenty of students lamenting that "this southern state is so much better than Illinois" all the time. I'm like...shut the **ck up and move back down there, then. The Civil War is over...people need to move on. I've met lots of idiots from the north...and lots of idiots from the south, too.

Being proud of where you're born makes about as much sense to me as being proud of having fingernails. It's not a personal achievement. April
    It's a different concept.. today, a Yankee is anyone born in the North and a Rebel is anyone born in the South. Whether you choose to be proud of it and make it part of who you are is your choice. You believe what you believe, but I believe in being proud of where you were born, just like being generally proud that you're American. Besides, everybody on here mentioned Yankees. If there are no Rebels, then there are no Yankees, either. But you never said anything to the people in this thread that said the word "Yankee".

    What the southern politicians do is not my fault and it is not any other southerner's fault. Just because out politicians are idiots doesn't mean we can't be proud to be southern. I'm not happy with President Bush either, but does that mean I dislike America? No.

    Nope. Can't ride the bus. I'm not 2 miles or more from Astronaut. Only 1.9. Probably gonna have my grandparents drive me or somethin'. And I don't have to wake up any earlier than I'm already used to.. high school gets in at, like, 9:30.

    For your information, in January it can be in the 40s in the day, which is way colder than in the 40s in the North. TRUST ME. I've been in 45-degree weather in the North. I wore shorts. But I've also been in 45-degree weather here. I wore long pants and about four layers and STILL almost froze. For some reason, 45 degrees here is a whole lot colder than 45 degrees in the North. 45 degrees here is like half that in the North.

    April, yeah the Civil War is over, but that doesn't mean people don't have the right to be proud of the heritage. Anybody can be proud of any thing they want.
