The view from my perch on the mountain

A Redneck Christmas Wish

I received this in an e-mail and just had to share it with y’all, the folks I consider my online family. Even though it’s intended for an American audience and y’all are scattered across the globe I think the message still applies.

clip_image001 We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. It’s time to take a reflective look at the core beliefs of a culture that values home, family, country and God. If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I’d choose a half dozen or so rednecks to back me up. Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit — that’s what rednecks are made of . If you feel the same, pass this on to your redneck friends. Y’all know who ya are.

clip_image002 You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, ‘One nation, under God..’

You might be a redneck if:
You’ve never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.

You might be a redneck if
: You still say ‘ Christmas’ instead of ‘Winter Festival.’

You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when someone prays.

You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem

You might be a redneck if: You treat our armed forces veterans with great respect, and always have.

You might be a redneck if: You’ve never burned an American flag, nor intend to.

You might be a redneck if:
You know what you believe and you aren’t afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.

You might be a redneck if
: You respect your elders and raised your kids to do the same.

You might be a redneck if:
You’d give your last dollar to a friend.

You might be a redneck if: You believe in God & Jesus and believe that others have the right to believe in which ever God they believe in as long as their God does not tell them to kill anyone who does not believe the same as they do!!!!! 

Keep the home fires burning, my redneck friends.

Merry Christmas and God bless all y’all!
