New Redneck Descriptions...!

I found a few more descriptive terms for us.

I know that I'm a redneck...and just maybe some of you are too! This list might help!

We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. It's time to take a reflective look at the core beliefs of a culture that values home, family, country and God. If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I'd choose a half dozen or so rednecks to back me up. Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit -- that's what rednecks are made of. I hope I am one of those.

You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, 'One nation, under God..'

You might be a redneck if: You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

You might be a redneck if: You still say ' Christmas' instead of 'Winter Festival.'

You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when someone prays.

You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem

You might be a redneck if: You treat our armed forces veterans with great respect, and always have.

You might be a redneck if: You've never burned an American flag, nor intend to.

You might be a redneck if: You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and raised your kids to do the same.

You might be a redneck if: You'd give your last dollar to a friend.

I'm sure that there is a lot more out there, but that's all I have for now! If you think of any more, just let me know, OK?

Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside. Should still be cool for a bit!

Wow, HermitJim if those items define a redneck then you can count me in too. And it seems we will be in fine company too judging from other folks feedback. Glad its cooling off a bit in Texas. We are having delightful cool 60s on our road trip. Thanks for coming along through our blog posts.
