    At the same time, nod. It is bad form.

    You still haven't answered my question.

    yessir, there are plenty. You'll notice that none of them were posted by me. I don't believe in using any of those terms, not even to make a point. Anyone that can't illustrate his point without that type of terminology is probably too stupid to have a point, to begin with. I don't think you fall into that category.

    So what were you objecting to? The use of hillbilly or bigot?

    Check the racial breakdown. While males are certainly not the common thread, and unless I am wrong, that is kinda implied by "HB".

    Southerners make up the largest single demographic in the US military--as has been the case througout our history. I understood you to mean, with the posting of your link, that that wasn't the case.

    You are right on the southerners thing. These days, that makes for a lot of black and hispanic kids.

    Just for the record, I am a white guy from a 14 generation southern military family.

    Thank you for your service.

    What country did the first 8 generations come from?

    As a hillbilly, I take issue with the fact that you seem to think 'hillbilly' is more offensive than 'bigot'.

    I believe the two words used together are offensive, as if there's only a such thing as a hillbilly bigot. Would you agree that other people, rural southron folk can be bigots, or are we the only ones?
