Neither can you apparently, you keep thinking I had a problem with term "redneck" and I corrected you. All I asked was the basis of your opinion about the area and if ti was based on your small sample size of your relatives and that clearly caused you to get super defensive an continue to be, not sure why, but just look at your initial response to me. I personally think your generalization whether or not its based solely off your relatives is off period. It's not nearly as christian, conservative, or as you described culturally.

Last post. Concord IS PART OF THE BAY AREA. ONCE AGAIN, CONCORD IS PART OF THE BAY AREA. It is absolutely, totally, completely not in any way shape or form, 100% positively not a part of the central valley. Anybody who has even the slightest familiarity with the Bay Area or the central valley would know this which makes it surprising (although not necessarily on this board) that anybody would even pose this question on this board.

Let's say it altogether: CONCORD IS NOT PART OF THE CENTRAL VALLEY!!!!

You were second to last post. As official Fresnan, I agree with mstnghfu2 that Concord is not part of the central valley. While it might give me great pleasure to say they were, I find I cannot. So hopefully the drama over Concord can end.

Durn it, ya posted after me...

...not that I have a problem with the Central Valley. In fact, I have lots of friends/family in the Sacramento area and would have no problem moving there if a source of income presented itself.

Many people on here frequently have a completely different perception of things. They use reasoning which defies logic in the real world.
