A Holiday Thought

By Daena Smoller

At the beginning of the holiday season, my very good friend Mike Mace (who just became an Associate Producer of the NEW ORLEANS OFFICIAL PARANORMAL GUIDE) sent me a holiday greeting unlike any others I'd received prior. As many of us are more reflective during this time of year and with a recent and foiled terrorist attack planned for the United States, I can't think of a better time to share this greeting with you:

We've all enjoyed redneck jokes for years but at this time of year, 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 more rednecks to back me up!

So check out the following and see how much of a redneck you may be:

You might be a redneck never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, "One nation under God"

You might be a redneck've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places

You might be a redneck still say "Christmas" instead of "Winter Festival"

You might be a redneck bow your head when someone prays

You might be a redneck stand and place your hand over your heart when you hear the National Anthem

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

You might be a redneck've never burned an American flag nor intend to

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

You might be a redneck respect your elders and raise your children to do the same

You might be a redneck'd give your last dollar to a friend
