1. I doubt they care much

about cultural sites unless it’s something extolling the existence of the Confederacy

13. i think she's actually mocking gun humpers.

tattoos that are not awful, pierced nose, fake baby bump and hand written slogan with poor grammer on a wife beater, looks like a "white trash" costume to me.

5. cultural sites

Let’s see: Dollywood, Branson, Twitty City, Grand Ole OPry, any Chick Fil-A , Waffle House or Cracker Barrel location. And of course Graceland and the Noah’s Ark Adventure.

10. I know, Aristus. I just googled states that went for Trump in 2016 and it's a culturally

deprived group of states. Sad, that...

12. Even in my birth state of Texas.

My first thought was: The Alamo.

But it's a monument to supporters of slavery.

15. Hey, Aristus, I'm a third generation Texan! Born and raised in Dallas.

I didn't think of the Alamo but I will say that Fort Worth has a fine art museum, The Kimbell. Damn, I wish I could go right now https://www.kimbellart.org/

11. New Orleans, the Alamo

the recently opened African American museum with its memorial to lynching in Alabama. The Edmund Pettus Bridge. Savannah, Charleston, Atlanta, Cherokee, NC, Asheville, NC.

I can keep going. I've lived in FL for 30 years. Being a Democrat in a red/purple state, in a very red county, is a big challenge and gets frustrating.

OTOH, the Democratic Women's club that I helped to found had 42 people at its first meeting of the year - a record. And that number included 20 new people. Every one of our votes counts and some day, I hope, we can get to a point where we appreciate all our states -- once the Republican menace is gone.

16. Those fine monuments to the brave African Americans of the civil rights movement are such

great cultural sites. They are monuments to greatness.

There are wonderful cultural monuments all over this country. I hate seeing DUers once again deriding some states writ large.
