Hey, CR, it’s picturesque and I can see chimney smoke, who lives there?

Some Independent Yankees, BP. With tarps on their roof, cardboard siding, and horses wandering around in the road (I had to wait a while to drive by a big one.)

These hills are filled with people living below the poverty level. Meanwhile, their tax dollars subsidize The Filthy Fucking Rich.

And they’re Proud Americans All.

Wow. Just like my neighborhood in the foothills of the Appalachians. Minus the snow.

This lifestyle is not uncommon. What slays me, though, is when the house looks like this, but there’s a swimming pool, a trampoline, several ATVs, any number of pets and minibikes littering the yard.

I know how judgemental it sounds, but priorities?

True, DCup – there’s a Jeep Grand Cherokee on the far side of the house (hey, Ya gotta be able to get home, ya know? )
