You, sir, are full of it. And you know of what. You have insulted unknown
legions of true Southerners, which you are certainly not. You may have been
born in the South, but your attitude is 1000% Yankee. Quit making fun of your
own, stupid. The Yankees do enough of that. Like I stated before the term
redneck refers to someone who has worked in the fields and other places outdoors
of the sunny South until the neck has reddened from the rays of Sol. Also, as
I said, when you denigrate the Redneck you are denigrating the builders of
America. The nation certainly wasn't built by the people like you who admit to
cheating visitors. You probably charge your mama interest when she needs a
little help from her Social Security pittance.
Bah, to you, and those like you. If you have lived in the South you should
know how wrong you are.
