Core values of a red neck
We have enjoyed the red neck 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 red necks to back me
up. Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit -- that's
what red necks are made of.
You might be a red neck if....
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 still say "Christmas" instead of "Winter
You bow your head when someone prays.
You stand and place your hand over your heart
when they play the National Anthem.
You treat Viet Nam vets with great respect, and
You've never burned an American flag.
You know what you believe and you aren't afraid
to say so, no matter who is listening.
You respect your elders and expect your kids to
do the same.
You'd give your last dollar to a friend.
Guess I am a red neck after all.
