    Go read this. My nickel says dayum few here remember the Coercive Acts, or as they were properly known the Restraining Acts, in 1774. These acts are as follows:

    Boston Port Act (June 1, 1774)

    Maybe some know about the Quartering Act (June 2, 1774)

    Back to none on the Administration of Justice Act (May 20, 1774) Or the Massachusetts Govt Act, (May 20, 1774).

    Maybe this is why my birth state is trying so hard to once again become a good and loyal subject to the Crown.

    We're all born somewhere. Doesn't mean we necessarily hold the native mores, customs and political views near and dear to our hearts. I left there nearly 45 years ago and never looked back.

    But you had to think about it for awhile. :mrgreen:

    Well, you've only got about another 5 before you can be thought about being considered to be starting to shed the yankee in you.

    Do know the difference between
    a "yankee",
    a "damned Yankee"
    and a dumb Yankee ?

    ---------

    A Yankee is the person who was born and grew up in the northeastern United States, like me--from western New York.

    A "damned Yankee" is a Yankee (see definition above)
    that moves down South to live,
    (to enjoy the good weather, friendly people, the lower taxes, the smaller & less intrusive government).

    And a "dumb Yankee" DOES NOT. ( they stay up there in the rust belt).

    You are almost right GS.

    A yankee lives up north.

    A dayum yankee comes south to visit.

    A Religious figure dayum yankee south to live.

    A dumb yankee is all of them, but that part goes without saying.
