Pennsylvanians believe in the Constitution?
That would be kind of a unique attitude.

Yep, James Madison.

I've never spent any time in Pennsylvania, just driven through it on 81 a couple times, and rode the train through, which passes through Philadelphia.

But it is a pretty state, that I can see.

Pennsylvania is a beautiful state. Unfortunately, the Poconos have become NJ Lite, but there are plenty of places in PA to get away from it all. Great hiking, hunting and fishing.

You're best off staying in the "Conservative T" area of PA and avoiding the Phila. and Pitts. metropolitan areas.

I'm glad you still remember something from elementary civics class.

The first permanent English settlement was in Virginia.

The first official Thanksgiving was in Virginia.

The first elected legislative assembly in the new world was in Virginia.

When the Founding Fathers needed a call to arms, it was given by a Virginian.

When the Founding Fathers need someone to write the Declaration of Independence, a Virginian answered the call.

When the Founding Fathers wanted someone to write the Constitution, a Virginian answered the call.

When the Founding Fathers wanted to elect someone to lead this new, great nation, they turned to a Virginian.

Didja learn that in yer civics class smart@$$?

I really do love my home state of Pennsylvania and if I could make as much money in PA as I do outside of PA, I might never have left. Well, no I probably would have left but I might have come back. Maybe. Anyway, I love the food, and the forests and the old houses. My parents complain about traffic if there is one car in front of them at one of the few traffic lights in their town. People identify other people by what church they go to and who they are related to:

You know[pronounced “Juno”] Dorris? She goes to first Presby and was Annie’s second cousin on her mother’s side…well the other day she did the craziest thing…

Directions are given by sending you to landmarks that aren’t there any more:

Jus go dawn to where Bill’s barn burned down, turn left ‘n’ drive ‘til you pass where da ol’ Jint Igle used to be, dan yur close. Should be on da left, cross from Jimmy’s sister place. Juno, she goes to dat Catholic church wit her Eye-talian husband…

Suddenly I could go for a sammich with chip-chopped ham and a pop.

PENNSYLVANIA: DUMB BUT SIMPLE
