    I live in Illinois, Southern Illinois. I have rural family roots in Kentucky and Ohio. In Southern Illinois, people bitch about the government while living in an economy where the only thing going for it = the schools and farming. The farmers are subsidized by the government. The schools are state schools. It is the highest form of cognitive dissonance.

    In Kansas they embraced a very fiscally conservative plan that is now being hailed as an abject failure by the voters and politicians who implemented it. Those voters are now blaming the government for doing what they were voted into office to do.

    In West Virginia and other mining areas, for decades they were warned that the way of life they embraced as dying. For decades that was ignored and the bulk of the workers didn't go (when they could afford it) to college, or learn other job skills. Then they were told that their way of life was especially dead and then bitch about how it's unfair and no one is helping them. While voting in the same people over and over again.

    In Minnesota, they went the opposite route. In Wisconsin, while contentious, the state has been helped by more responsible action and better political methods. My point is that I don't necessarily hate rural areas, but I do hate areas that do the same damn things over and over again while bitching they're underrepresented. Especially since those states tend to get more federal help than just about anyone else.

    Shallow? No. A fan of actual personal accountability? Yeah. Plus those states have no actual culture. They provide nothing. And now that farming is subsidized, they essentially contribute nothing, either.

    No worries. I meant the "good times" in a sarcastic, and joking way, and it didn't come off right. I know what a tough time it was, and I'm happy for you. I felt terrible for you at the time. I'm sorry to have brought up the bad memories.

    Same here. Sometimes we hurt the ones we love. I know I can have a pretty biting sarcasm sometimes that cuts as deep as any direct personal attack. I don't mean it to come off that way, but I'm told it does.

    Do people have to post a certain way? No. Was your comment unnecessary? Yes. Instead of spending 3-4 pages of bitching at each other Davii could of easily nipped the whole thing in a bud and kept it on topic. You and Davii may not like hearing that but if you cant logically look at what im saying and agree than i really dont know what to tell you. As i stated before virtually every thread on this forum has people with varying comments so there was no need to come in and try to tell people which thread they should or should not post in. You didnt break any rules Joe but it really was unnecessary. Oh, and it doesnt have a thing to do with national pride. I love my country but just dont care for the Olympics overall outside of a couple of sports.
