    Actually, I'd rather see TEXAS in the unfriendly list. A friendly atmosphere encourages people to move there - we're full (thanks to the illegals), and the last thing we need is a bunch of California or new yaulk liberals infecting the state. Not wanted - not needed - and you'll NEVER fit in. Move to a socialist country.

    Californians and New Yorkers should swap places. Keep them busy for a while screwing up the new place.

    LOL great thread.

    I moved from Florida/Georgia to Washington DC and thought the people up there - in general - were absolutely rude. Maryland included. My son went to school on Long Island and visiting there - same thing. Drivers really have no patience either - the communicate with their horns a lot. Like its some code.

    I don't know why Minnesota is deemed "friendly". LOL

    The people in Minnesota aren't really talking to you. That's just their teeth chattering from the cold.
    Memphis -- No. 2 on the list of most crime ridden cities in America. Working on being No. 1 but we just can't catch Detroit.

    I can't legally carry in either one.
    I was going to say, PA should take care of that. Then, I checked and itís actually my Delaware CCDW that gets me Minnesota.

It honestly pains me to see our small towns rank so low on a scale but I get it. We are overwhelmed with folks from New York, New Jersey, Philly, and Baltimore. All bringing their "family-screw you hick get out of my way-values". We are also constantly berated with gun control legislation ( from our lovely reps up north). Thank the Lord for a group called Delaware gun rights! If it wasn't for them Delaware would be the sister of Maryland or even worse the likes of California. All in all I love my state, just hope we get back on the right track. For all you Delawareans, VOTE! Volunteer! Get involved because life as we knew it may be over if things don't change
    Iím a born and bred, Scrapple eating Delawarean. It pains me to watch what my State has become. My brother moved to Southwestern Tennessee a couple of years ago and the area he is in, along with the nearby Mississippi Hill Country reminds me very much of Kent and Sussex Counties of the 1970ís. By the way, if you have been involved with DGR protests, there is a pretty good chance we have met.

    I wish people would just quit talking about Tennessee. I know that I've been guilty in the past, but I'm stopping it now. It just makes idiots want to move here and change stuff. We had a terrific state insurance program for the disadvantaged until word got out that we had that program. The flood of people flocking into the state would take your breath away. Do you have anything to contribute? Nope, but we'll take whatever your giving away.

    My brother and his oldest son would disagree with you on having something to contribute. They both have been pretty much non stop working 60+ hours a week for two plus years since they moved to the State. They are both lovers of outdoors, strong supporters of the Second Amendment, and greatly appreciate the people of the state. Fortunately, they have encountered few people with unwelcoming attitudes. As for changing stuff, my brother moved his family to Tennessee, not only because of the opportunity for steady work, but because having visited the area several years in a row, he recognized that the area offered his younger son and daughter an opportunity to grow up in an area much closer culturally, to what our area had been like when we grew up in the 70ís, 80ís, and into about the mid 90ís.

    Another good friend of mine moved to the Franklin area about three years ago. He is a strict constitutional conservative and is an academic. He teaches accounting and finance at the college level and his wife is an employed CPA. Their daughter earned her undergrad and graduate degrees in TN and decided to stay in the state. She is a vibrant young and successful entrepreneur. Iíd hardly call that family a family that came to TN with nothing to contribute.

    Trust me, I know where your frustration comes from. Iím watching folks from NY, NJ, CT, MA, and the Philly area of PA moving to my state and my town and many of them are abominable. However, I have also met many fine folks coming from those areas that are just trying to escape the lunatics that ruined their states. Iíve met quite a few at gun rights rallies and those folks are fighting just as hard as native Delawareans like myself to beat back the Bloomberg Brigade. If we fail, there is a pretty good chance that you will be getting at least one more family fleeing Delaware to Tennessee...

    There are always exceptions, and I didn't mean to come off as unwelcoming. I guess my objection is folks who are trying to turn my state into the miserable place that they just left. Does that make any sense?

    By the way, you might find Smyrna, Tennessee to be a perfect fit.

    Trust me, I understand your frustration. I truly do. I often have to catch myself to keep from just being automatically rude to folks with NY and NJ accents in my town. I have to consciously remind myself that there is a good chance that pretty soon, I will be the newcomer in a new town, and I will be the one with the strange accent.
