    I'm a southern boy and being that, I could take offense to your comment.  I don't, however, because I think we in America need to stop taking offense at anything and everything said when it comes to culture and race and heritage.

    Thanks.

      I think drmah meant to say, "Mountainwilliams".

      I never thought hillbilly was the same as a southerner.  I'm from north of the Mason/Dixon line and I thought it was sort of a redneck that lived in the mountains/high hills.

        and want to be left alone.  They like to live off the land and make moonshine and want the feds to leave them be.  Or any law for that matter.  Most were originally Scotish who were fleeing the English rule.  I have some in my family, in fact my family is a composite of numerous races and national origins.  My cousin's daddy's grandparents lived in the hills of West Virgina and his grandpa was white, his grandma black.  My cousins are olive skinned color.  There are also native americans in our family, as well as English, dutch, French, and Spanish.  We decided long ago we were the hines 57 variety family and just love everyone!  I would bet that there are some other races and national origins in the right wing bigots families!  But one thing people should know, those hillbillies know how to survive in any circumstance.  They are not stupid.
