You think that someone with such a high education level wouldn't be this ignorant. Where does he think his GMO free, organic, all natural food comes from?
Some people don't like the traffic, all the noise, pollution, crime, some people just want a little breathing room.

And, there would be no open spaces if it wasn’t for rural/small town America. You are greeted by a sign as you drive into California’s Surprise Valley telling you if you enjoy wide open landscapes to thank a rancher.

I can understand not every one wanting to live in the country.

I can't understand the total ignorance that tweet indicates. He should have his mouth washed out with male bovine pasture pies.

Ever wonder why people come out of college stupider than when they went in?

Professor know-it-all should go out to a farm in a rural area to see how easy they have it, see what it’s like to be a master of all trades and a jack of none, I doubt this pompous bag has ever done a day of real work his entire life.

I'd like to see him dropped off in the middle of nowhere with a 40 pound pack of survival gear.

Obviously this guy is off.

But seriously? If I posted a new thread about every person I thought was an idiot I would crash the C-D servers.

I never get upset about opinion pieces or reports of a single person's opinion on stuff. I mean who cares what one person thinks?

If I did, I would be in a constant state of outrage. And who the heck wants that?

Reading the reactions in this thread is a case study in how people are easily manipulated and how important cultivating an audience is to media companies.

When I was a kid in a city, the worst insult you could give to someone, was to call him a farmer. Then, when I was 11, we moved to a farm and I became one of them.
