Me too! Why should i pay 12 bucks for a fishing lure at Bass Pro Shops when i can buy the EXACT same lure at Walmart for 5 bucks? I'll put the other 7 bucks in my gas tank! i guess us HICKS just have common sense!

I get the same thing living in Nebraska, and talk about rural, other than Omaha and Lincoln, it's wide open prairie.

Let 'em think and say what they want, it don't bother me none. No-sur-eeee, tha way I see it, it'll keep them furners outta here and we can keep it for ourselves.

Your probably better off having people think these things of your state or it might get over-run. People from places like up North would enjoy your state, they would still have the moutains and trees like back home, some cooler temperatures in the winter but with a lower cost of living.

You guys don't want to get over-run by pushy, rude Yankees do you?
Exactly. shhhhh!

LOL! You know, it's hard for me to fathom people who think that it is important to have lots of places to shop 'til you drop right around the corner. There's no better entertainment than the Ozark mountains....hiking, biking, canoeing, (and in your case, fishing) or just sitting and listening to the wind blow and the birds sing.

Until what? I'm new here, so I don't know what you're counting down to....getting back to Arkansas, maybe? If so, I know how you feel....I count the days when I'm home, until I can get back to the cabin. The longing gets really intense in the spring and fall.

I hear the same things about my state of Alabama. Everyone assumes all of us are missing teeth and live in trailers. For some reason it seems like Mississippi gets the worst of it though. For the south to be so bad, it sure does seem like many people are moving here.

One thing this website should do is show everyone that we are MUCH more of a moble socitey now, people don't so often stay in the same state they were born in somaybe in time some of the stereo types we are used to will fade away.

When I first moved to Mississippi to begin graduate school, a waiter that was checking my ID couldn't resist cracking some jokes about me being from Arkansas. He had the nerve to get all up in my personal space, and with a shocked look on his face said, "you have all of your teeth; you can't be from Arkansas!" I told him to get over himself--he's from Mississippi and there's not a huge difference. I don't get it. The states are right next to each other. Our own neighbors think we're some 3rd world country.
