You Might Be a Redneck.....

John Murtha and Barack Obama have both caught flack (appropriately so) about the apersions cast at the people of Western Pennsylvania. Obama stated that they are bitter and cling to their guns and Bibles. Murtha called them (his own constituents in his re-election year no less) racist and then muddled through an attempt to smooth this over by calling them REDNECKS!!

Jeff Foxworthy has made the "You Might Be a Redneck" eponym famous, but today my 87 year old mother sent me the perfect retort to the elitist media and politicians who have no limit on the invective that they are spewing toward those of us who are just middle Americans who work hard and try to do what it right. So see if you are a redneck based on this little email that she sent to me.

You might be a redneck if:
It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God.'
You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.
You still say ' Christmas' instead of 'Winter Festival.'
You bow your head when someone prays.
You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.
You treat our armed forces veterans with great respect, and always have.
You've never burned an American flag, nor intend to.
You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.
You respect your elders and raised your kids to do the same.
You'd give your last dollar to a friend.

Well, based on the above definition I am certainly a redneck and I am proud to say it.

Oh, by the way Barack....I'm bitter and I VOTE. See ya at the polls on November 4!
