A Different Slant on Rednecks........

I've never thought of myself as a Red Neck but according to this email....I am one, are you?

You might be a redneck....with a new twist

This is for all of my “RED NECK” friends and family… some of whom don’t think of themselves as being red necks.

Nicest redneck email that I have received..

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 terroris ts 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. If you feel the same, pass this on to your redneck friends. Ya'll know who ya' are. 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.



If you got this email from me, it is because I believe that you, like me, have just enough Red Neck in you to have the same beliefs as those talked about in this email.



God Bless the USA

As I am not an American I cannot possibly be a redneck but I answered most of the questions with yes. Can I be an honorary redneck then? ;-)

A very Blissful New year to you and yours!

Hello Betty,
It's nice to meet you and thanks for your comment on my post about President Bush. I was surprised as I made that post almost three months ago! From what I see, you and I share the same values and beliefs. Again, thanks!

I'm a southern girl that has always denied being a redneck, but with these definitions...I may have to reconsider!
