Nothing will rile a Southerner more than some smart-mouth Yankee opening his asinine piehole to degrade and belittle his brothers and sisters in warmer climes. The Recent Unpleasantness was over generations ago, but some just can’t let it go. I was alerted to this high insult earlier this evening by the estimable Mr. McCain, who himself takes great umbrage at the rantings of the afflicted chowderhead, a certain Thomas Geogheganof The Wall Street Journal. This fellow is obviously vying for the dimmest bulb in the box award when he opines thusly on The Glorious South:
Why is Boeing, one of our few real global champions in beefing up exports, moving work on the Dreamliner from a high-skill work force ($28 an hour on average) to a much lower-wage work force ($14 an hour starting wage)? Nothing could be a bigger threat to the economic security of this country.
We should be aghast that Boeing is sending a big fat market signal that it wants a less-skilled, lower-quality work force. . . .
We depend on Boeing to out-compete Airbus, its European rival. But when major firms move South, it is usually a harbinger of quality decline.
Airbus? After your awkward swat at your betters, is Airbus the best you can do? Surely an such elitist, with the superior intellect, no doubt can do better than that. Let’s jump the fence and go sit in the blue lights, shall we? We’ll watch the planes land at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International (that means the flights connect to Biloxi and beyond) Airport (the world’s busiest airport, by the way, since 1999, a full one hundred and thirty-four years after The War of Northern Aggression) and watch the planes land. You count the Airbuses and I’ll count the Boeings. Haha. I win, bigtime.
Pay attention, moron. Companies move to the South because of the business friendly climate, lower taxes, better infrastructure, and just face it, Atlanta has the hottest women. More than you can stomach, I suppose.
Really, sir, no one down he-yah gives a da-yam about the demented ravings of a scurrilous carpetbaggah. Your Hah-vahd education serves you ill, sir, seeming that you never learned one bit about real economics. I can only assume that course is now taught at universities in states that actually create jobs, not kill them. Southern states, that is.
Odds are your next President will be a Southerner. I guess that means you’ll move to Canada. Or France.
And she did not even have to go into the quality of SEC football as compared to what they play up yonder either!
