One Quick Question...



do you consider Washington D.C. a northern or southern city? I can't get a straight answer.

It should be neither, since "north" and "south" split our country. Call it neutral. Or at least it should be. Now it's "red" and "blue", same song, different verse.

Simply, a divided state as the rest of the other states. Washington D.C. used to be the place to see and view history. Now, Bush Administration has turned Washington D.C into a scandalous city.

Tsk tsk. I would expect a nice Irish Catholic boy to know that President Kennedy described Washington as "a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm."

It is a Southern city.
Because Bush and his moronic cronies have turned DC into some kind of Texas backwater hick town.
DC is now a joke because of Bush.

Washington DC is a southern city. Any state or entity below the Mason Dixon line is technically a southern state. DC's neighbor Maryland is also considered Southern with Northern sensibilities.

I just had this very same debate about this issue with a friend of mine from Texas who just moved to Maryland.

He says that Maryland and DC are not southern at all. I told him that he doesn't know his history very well. He claimed that Maryland and DC is not southern because we don't have a strong Football tradition like Texas. Big Frickin Deal.

Maryland/DC is southern-food (crab cakes, Stuff ham with Kale)

Many of my Northern friends from PA, NYC who moved down here finds Maryland and DC too slow paced for them.

From growing up there I can tell you that it is FULL of snooty stuck up people who look down on the rest of country and us in it.

There is no other place like it for elitist attitude..

CJT: you are absolutely unequivocally wrong, yet completely entitled to your opinion, of course.

Silicon Valley takes the cake in elitist attitude... take a NYC stockbroker's arrogance, mix in Bushes' entire administration, multiply that by at least 1000, now you have 'nailed' the elitism demonstrated by those in Silicon Valley.

'Nuf said. I like to say I live on the 'right' coast.

As for DC, yep below the Mason Dixon line, all Southern.

Here is the quote of the day from Bush. Absolute simpleton!

"Were you the only black man in Salt Lake City?"

Bush says this in New Orleans to a Hurricane Katrina survivor who had survived for days on canned goods before being evacuated to Utah. there you go!

6 miles,

Sorry but there is no snob like the DC political snob. People in DC scoff at Silicon Valley tech wealth, that's not the name of the game.

Look at how many times those with monetary wealth must feel a need to experience the government power game to be feel complete.

Political snobbery far out weighs those neo-wealthy I experienced on the West Coast, including the The Beverly Hills and Marin County types I slightly swallowed vomit over.

Once you leave DC and cross the Potomac into Virginia you are in the Deep South, but DC is north in my book.

it is SOUTH of the mason-dixon line, so therefore, it is a southern city

Lets see I'd say North/Easten city. Or Sin City would be better. I remember when I visited DC and boy was it an education on those back streets. Stuff movies are made of. I had no idea what college girls do for their tuition but they told me alot that a young lady like me from a small town didn't know. Boy did I get out of there fast.

Both and neither. I think of Washington as a conduit to all of America. A central pipeline, if you will, to gather and digest all political byproducts of the land.

In other words, I think of Washington as a sewage disposal plant, replete with all the smells of decaying flotsam and jetsom forced there by by corporate plungers.

I had a few younger years in Arlington Virginia and used to go hiking near the banks of the Potomac river. Washington was north of the Potomic river, and the river is a dividing line for the State of Virginia. As anyone knowing history would understand, West Virginia was partitioned from Virginia to the federal north during the cival war. One would consider DC partitioned out of the State of Maryland quite early in the formation of our Republic since it is part of the tidal pool on the banks north of Virginia. We did not make North-South distinctions really, until the cival war.
