Writer Erin O'Brien comments on all things human.
Ah, the romance of a wedding picture with farm equipment . . .
These are my people.C'mon, you sheep fucking Taliban, fuck with these folks.I'm sweatin' in my shop, listening to Gospel Twang radio, and thinking about all the USMC taking it to the geehadis this weekend.May Allah (PBUHN) protect our troops. Buddah, too.
Ya'll don't get married under decoys in Ohio?Phil you should be in Smithville, TN this weekend. Fiddlers Jamboree. Nonstop American Roots Music (Bluegrass for the unitiated) all weekend. Church of Christ sweettea, fried pies, funnel cakes, BBQ. God Bless America.I have it on good authority that a certain former governor resigned to come here without risking ethics violations.RJ

And people oppose gay marriage
Don't mock the afflicted!
it's almost more sad than funny, at least to me...
Funny, yes - but have you seen this?http://latfh.com
So the rural folks (I refuse to call them "white trash". We wouldn't call low-income minorities black trash or brown trash, would we?) are thinking (and celebrating) outside the box, what of it? If you showed photos instead of avant-garde bohemian types doing such things, I think a lot of readers of this blog might say "Ah, they're such free spirits!" A couple posts after this one, there's something about Andy Warhol. Read about his "factory" sometime.One of the chief complaints about farm folks is that they're too conformist. So why begrudge them when they finally show that they're not? It should be encouraged. Who knows? Maybe one day they'll actually vote Democratic.
Kirk, I agree the name is not politically correct, but there are certain risks you take when you outfit your wedding party in toilet paper.
I very rarely preach political correctness. In fact, I once gave my brother a book for his birthday called POLITICALLY CORRECT FAIRY TALES, which poked fun of the whole phenomenon. Also, for the record, I have no problem with the terms "hillbilly" or "redneck" (though I wouldn't use those terms in front of someone who DID have a problem) as they're kind of neutral. Maybe all the years I've spent white and low-income myself (though I lack the crucial Southern Anglo-Saxon background) has made me somewhat sensitive.I guess it's the white man's burden.
