You never said a truer thing. The “gift” that keeps on costing, and costing, and costing...

What chaps my azz is the way leftists throw all the negative statistics re Mississippi in our faces but won’t admit or recognise that MS has the highest percentage of blacks of any state, hence our position in negative indicators.

But maybe there’s a silver lning to that-let everyone continue to believe that we’re such a horrible backwards state, and the leftists won’t target us as an option when searching for a new state to ruin after they ruin their home states.

I’ve lived here all my life, have seen plenty of other places, including out of country, and wouldn’t live anywhere else for love or money.

As long as MS manages to keep out the news (because we’re never in it for a good reason) and fly under the radar, life is good in the free state of Mississippi. Most people here know the score from living it, and keep to themselves.
