A different kind of Redneck

My blogging friend Linda shared something that made me think. I loved the way that her post turned around the pejorative Redneck descriptor and presented a different perspective on the word. Here is a snippet for your enjoyment.

You might be a redneck if ...

    •  You bow your head when someone prays.

    •  You still say 'Christmas' instead of 'Winter Festival.'

    •  You respect your elders and raised your kids to do the same.

    •  You'd give your last dollar to a friend.

    •  You treat our armed forces veterans with great respect, and always have.

    •  You've never burned an American flag, nor intend to.

    •  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 stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem.

    •  You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

Now if these make you cringe a bit - I suggest that you might be taking Jeff Foxworthy's jokes a bit too seriously. :)
