You are why I HATE the northeastern states. I'm raised in Kentucky but have spent most my life in the caribbean, west coast and now alaska.

I will never set foot up there.

Actually, it seems most of the posters disagree with the OP. I know I do. You can see what s/he is describing in any city.

This whole redneck thing really irretates me. I have always lived in citys, Stockholm, Seattle, Frankfut and now in Memphis. I like to dress somewhat trendy but when I get home at night I wear an over sized T shirt and ugly as shorts. If I am off for a couple of days or on vacaction I might not shave my legs for a few days. My point is that just becasue you live in a small town doesn't make you a clueless redneck that don't know anything about the rest of the world. You live in a small town people care more about the people for who they are not their wardrobe.My husband is the smartest person I ever met he is a total fashion disaster. He wear whatever he think is comfortable and he is from a small rural town. And thanks to him many of you who likes to travel by air gets to your destenation in one pice.
Ball caps, beer bellys or whife beater T shirts might look country but has nothing to do with intelligence.

Boulder, Madison, and Ann Arbor are not really "small town", though.

So in other words, if I take my world wide education & big bucks and retire as we desire with 40 yrs in a small town in TN and dress myself comfi and have a beer with friends I'm all the sudden less smart doing all this?

That's just BS sorry....and on a side note, what you're referring to as "redneck" here are more often then not folks that have some greater values as a baseline in life then "your kinda ppl" apparently have.

These hillbillies and rednecks have more real life survival skills than most northeastern big city folks could ever dream about. When the $hit hits the fan you may be relying on one of these hicks to help you feed your family. Can you hit a rabbit running with a 22 or hit a pigeon while it's flying ? So called sophisticated rural types are generally better at showing off guided trip trophies than putting food on the table just by taking a little hike with a rifle. I'm a redneck and damned proud of it even though I grew up in a huge city I'll take a bunch of rednecks for neighbors over snobby city people any-day.
