    My school was in the next county over...and even then my graduating class was all of 42 people. Where I lived, if someone lives five miles away, they're considered your neighbor. There wasn't much to do there, either. My summers consisted of taking a fishing pole (which was sometimes just an honest-to-goodness bamboo cane pole) down the gravel road (which I often walked barefoot) to the bayou (which is what we called the local drainage ditches, as opposed to the real bayous down in Louisiana) to catch catfish, bream, or crappie. I grew up with a cotton field on the east border of our acre and a soybean field on the southern border, and another cotton field across the road to the west.

    There's a Southern Baptist church about five miles away - my family's direct line is buried there going all the way to the 1870's. I have VERY deep roots (as far as we Americans are concerned) in the MS Delta. The words in parentheses, btw, are because there's many places in Europe and Asia where a family that's only been around for 150 years is still considered somewhat of a "newcomer".

    "Suburbs"? Where I grew up, that would have been an insult - and might have gotten you a fat lip.

    And I was conservative in the OLD meaning of conservative - do for yourself and yours, be trustworthy, be there for your neighbors when they need you most, and reach out to help those who weren't as fortunate. Every year that rolled around, we'd give out bushels of vegetables from our garden to those who might otherwise go hungry.

    Come to think of it, given that definition, I'm still conservative. The only real differences between how I was raised and what I believe now is that I believe we should listen to the scientists, and I'm much more tolerant of those who don't look like or believe as I do.

    I suggest that next time, maybe, just maybe you should refrain from ASSUMING you know what kind of life the other person's led. I haven't made any assumptions about you - perhaps you shouldn't make assumptions about mine.
    Yeah, but tip your hat the wrong way or look too rich and see what happens in the "burbs" with this ever changing culture and section 8 government housing.

    The Origin of the word Swastika
    The word 'swastika' derives from an Asian Indian Sanskrit word, in which the meaning of the swastika stands for universal welfare. "Swasti" means well-being of one and all and "ka" means symbol. The swastika is one of the most ancient of all symbols and used as a symbol for peace, life and good luck. It represented the revolving sun, fire or life.

    Which makes the cops Nazis, because they pay dues to a union, the union is a group of nazis, and since their union bank rolls democratic appointments, the democrats are Nazis. Infallible.

    I believe it is pretty prevalent with Native Americans as well.

    Section 8 housing is almost never in the nicer suburbs - it's almost always in the poorer parts of town. And what would happen if that section 8 housing weren't there? There would be a lot more homeless, right? Right. And what happens to the crime rate when there's a lot more homeless people? It goes up significantly...and you know it.

    So you've got a choice - you can pay the taxes that go towards section 8 housing...OR you can pay the taxes for increased law enforcement, judicial processing, and prison management, and increased prices at the store since they pay more for insurance in high-crime areas. In other words, YOU PAY ANYWAY. The only choice you have is whether to pay to keep people from being homeless, or to pay for what happens when there's a lot more homeless people.

    You obviously don't read the anti-cop threads....
    Obviously you're not reading either. What lean is Tres borrachos?

    Why is it when some one disagrees with another poster's substance (and seems more Left than right) it's "you CONs" ?
