Dear Mods,

This is a politics forum, right? It's my understanding that a category was set up for off topic threads. Would this be one of those?

Well, you got a point there. I suppose this is where it belongs, regardless of how ridiculous it is.

I posted it to see who the rednecks are here. I know there are a lot of them. But they won't admit it.

This is called "trolling".

You need to get with Billo. He's a lot better at it than you.

Is this your way of admitting that you are a redneck? :rofl

What is a redneck? What defines a Redneck? This isn't rhetorical, I don't know what redneck is except to use it as an insult. :mrgreen:

It's a person (male or female but usually a male) who either lives in the southern states of the U.S. or grew up there and then moves somewhere else later. They usually don't have much respect for women. They own a lot of guns and brag about it. They drink a lot of beer or moonshine whiskey. They are very uneducated. They speak in a southern drawl. They are white, and usually hate gays and blacks. They are momma's boys. Sometimes they live in trailers.

My dad is a redneck and he is a Republican, even though he didn't vote in the last election. He said his name wasn't on the voter list when he got there. He is an educated redneck.

Yah, I'm not a redneck, but my dad is a little bit redneck. Everyone in my family is Irish. Nobody on my mother's side is a redneck. But my dad has serious redneck roots, like backwoods, potato, black-eyed peas, fried chicken and corned bread with moonshine-whiskey-for-dinner kinda redneck. My aunts (the onew who haven't died yet) sit around all day picking beans and gossiping in a shack with no electricity. And they are all toothless. And I can't understand one word that comes out of their mouths.:shock: :3oops: I am embarrassed.

We have some people similar back in the UK - pikeys or the politically correct term is Irish travellers. These Irish people are like nomads, travel from place to place around the country, leaving rubbish along our countryside as they go. They are hard as f**K (bare knuckle boxing is there main sport). You can't understand what they are saying, they try a scam you all the time. And all the characteristics above.

Some of them have come to the US and they travel in 'bands' and scam for 'home improvement' work, like taking money to paint your house, doing a half-fast job and skipping town. It was a big deal here a few years ago and the public was warned that if anyone with an Irish accent and a pick-up truck with a windowed cap tries to solicit home repair work, call the authorities. They basically left this area entirely.

Here they are called gypsies. I don't know of any personally. But a couple years ago, there was an Irish gypsy woman who was seen on a dept. store's video camera just beating the heck out of her little girl outside in the parking lot. She was arrested and jailed. It was all over the news, and very sickening, as the media replayed the video over and over. She turned out to be from Ireland and part of a gang of gypsies.:doh

I kind of take offense to some of those statements. We don't all talk with a southern drawl or have bigotted views or are uneducated or live in trailers. Your 'definition' smacks of snobbery.
I'm a 'piney'-a NJ redneck. Born in and around the Pinelands, lowerclass to middleclass people. To offset your negative connotations, allow me to interject with some positive ones.
Strong sense of loyalty to family and those they call friends. If you are a friend, you are gold to them.
Easy to laugh. Life is to enjoy and regardless of their lot it life, they strive to enjoy it.
Self-sufficient. They know hard work has value. Now, some of the wives might sit home, but they are expected to pull their weight there.
Resourceful. That heap of trash in the side yard gets picked through because something 'might be of use someday'.:mrgreen:


Redneck, lover of NASCAR and proud of it!

I saw this the other day on rednecks. I don't agree with the Gorbi & John wayne bit or the American Pride bit for that matter.

What this world needs is a few more rednecks
Some people ain’t afraid to take a stand
What this world needs is a little more respect
For the Lord and the law and the working man
We could use a little peace and satisfaction
Some good people up front to take the lead
A little less talk and a little more action
And a few more rednecks is what we need

I was raised on beans and cornbread
And I like my chicken fried
And yes I drive a pickup truck and I’m full of American pride
I keep a Bible on my table and a flag out on my lawn
And I don’t believe in minding no one’s business but my own
Now I love them Rambo movies
I think they make a lot of sense
And it’s a shame old John Wayne didn’t live to run for President
And I don’t care what nobody says I don’t trust old Gorbachev
And I don’t know who turned him on, it’s time to turn him off

Now they’re trying to take my guns away
And that would be just fine
If you’ll take them away from the criminals first
I’ll gladly give you mine
And I don’t mind paying taxes, but it makes my temper itch
When my hard earned money goes to make some politician rich
What most people call a redneck ain’t nothing but a working man
He earns his living by the sweat of his brow
And the callouses on his hands
Now you intellectuals make not like it
But there’s a whole lot more of us common folks
Than there ever will be of you

TOT, I know you're eager to prove your redneck-ness, but let's keep the foulness in the basement where it belongs. Thanks
