Amen. thank you neighbor. People have taken up the habit of beating up on WV and it is undeserved. Sure we have our share of welfare folk, but as you say, WV has maybe a million and a half people in the whole state. Life has never been easy for the people of WV. They have a long history of being exploited by outside powers (timber & coal), and by the government welfare programs which did the same to the poor Appalachians that it did to the blacks in urban cities. It robbed them of self-reliance and self-respect. Still the majority of WVirginians are good hard working conservative people.

Thank you, WVNan. It gets old seeing our state misrepresented.
