1. Don't come live out here and harass me about my livestock stinkin', I don't go into your city and tell you how bad your cars stink, do I?
2. You live 10 miles away from me, there is no way in hell the donky's brayin' is keepin' you awake. Maybe it's that music you want someone in another country to hear.(If I get rid of him, the stock will get ate by predators).
3. Rodeo's are not cruel, go back to watchin' animal planet.
4. Don't ***** at me about the fact there ain't no malls out here.
5. Most people out here eat meat, it's like telling a lion to eat a turnip green, it ain't happening. Plus, what the hell do I have canines for, if not tearing flesh. Go back to your land of soy and stop screamin' that we are murderers.
6. Just because this is a tourist area, dosen't give you the right to wander onto my property.
(People do actually come out her and yell at us. I ain't makin' any of this up.)

Ahhh this old chestnut-the made up war between "city folk" and "country folk." It's like a bad e-mail forward that never dies. This version is so tired I can just cut and paste my retorts to the last one:

See above.

(I will admit that this one was prompted by some bizarre rant about music being played too loud by "city folk," but no one is crying about rodeo cruelty except the OP)

It's an old chestnut and is like the email that won't die because unfortunately there often is some truth to it. You typically see it in rural areas surrounding growing urban/suburban areas where suburbs now crowd up to working farms that have been in place for at times over a century or more.

In my experience, most of the subdivison people know the farm was there first and respect the farmer's right to work their place. Most farmers I know try to not bother people and even change their schedules on what tasks they can to keep from being a bother...it's all about being a good neighbor.

But, some people just don't/can't/won't grasp that concept.

Come to my area, the rich tourists who stay in the $10k lodges with views of the lake grumble about the "barbaric sport", to quote one.

It's funny how country folk always lauded as 'nicer', and yet write lists like this.

Whereas city folk are so accustomed to dealing with different strokes for different folks, that they are content to just live and let live.

Until they get out in the country, some of them, and then that "live and let live" just vanishes in a puff of smoke.

That's why there's a need for "Right to Farm" laws, and why they were passed in the first place, because of people moving to the country from the city and then trying to legislate the farms out of existence because of things like, well, livestock, and farming, and odors, and noise, that don't fit into their blissful picture of life in the country.
