Half-raised: a young man or woman who knows how to use "yes, sir" and "yes, ma'am" in conversations but still sits down to eat wearing a ball cap or other kind of hat on their head.

Half raised by the federal government and half raised by the state government...

An individual lacking in certain social characteristics because they weren't raised the way you were.

Great squawk! Good selection. My mama and grand mama always used the term "raised right". If a boy got a whipping for messing up in school or Sunday School, it was because he was being "raised right!" I suppose if he had just got a scolding they would say he was being half raised right. The comments by the readers are really enjoyable.

Sorry to keep you all waiting for the answer. My neices are visiting me from Newark New Jersey and I have been busy taking them all over Albany to see the sights.

The answer is I never heard the phrase half raised. But I do see alot of dumb crackahs in restaurants with they ball cap on. I just figure most of them are from Lee County so they don't know no better.

That question must have been way over your head, and it wasn't a yes or no question. I guess you and Dr. Texas just don't understand the sarcasm of the question. Lighten up, take a chill pill, relax, calm down, keep your pants on, golly gee.

Being a transplanted Yankee, I love the South and the sayings they have. I used to work with a fella, born and raised in SoWeGa....who used to come in to work and say "ain't it airish this morning?" Had to have someone interpret it for me....meant is was windy and chilly, (according to the interpreter).
