The rural Great Plains region. (I specify rural because DFW is in the Great Plains and known for its superficiality)

Hmm.. Minneapolis, Kansas City, Chicago and other cities in the Midwest are just as modern as any other city in the coast. Although, looking at the ridiculous time period we're living in, do we even WANT to "keep up with the times?" Wake me up when its 1995 again.

A couple athletes tried to the do the Colin Kaepernick thing at a college and were booed and insulted openly by large numbers of fans and told to leave America if they didn't like it here.

Walmart brands ,not fancy designer labels, are the norm and people in elite clothing actually stand out. People are definitely much more into pickup trucks and Jeeps than Mercedes, BMWs, other luxury vehicles etc. There isn't a single Trader Joe's or Whole Foods in the entire state and even Starbucks is rare and is seen as a rather yuppie place.


A snowflake will not survive there. Also like that to a lesser extent here in Louisiana though there is more political correctness at least when we are aroudn the black population. (for example being careful where we wear our rebel shirts and hats......)
Is that part of your wardrobe?

In the context that I used them in, I clearly meant to use them as synonyms. Please feel free to replace the word "times" with the word "jonses". It wouldn't change the meaning of my quote...

I would think these places are mainly found in small rural states like Nevada minus Vegas, New Mexico, Mississippi and Louisiana and West Virginia
