Redneck and proud of it!In St. Charles though it is still redneck enough that people won't sit back and take it this time... no matter how loud the blacks want to yell. Couple that with the fact that many St. Charles residents still have a bitter tast in their mouths due to what happened in North County in the last 10 - 20 years... you might see more fighting back this time. Also, the blacks don't realize this, and probably should before they move out here, but there is a LOT of institutionalized racism out here... and we like it that way. And you can forget about the GhettoLink and the bus lines coming out here, because if we have to vote on funing it, we'll surely shoot it down every time.
It is that kind of inept thinking that is turning the St. Louis region into a corporate junkyard. One of the biggest complaints I hear from business professionals is the high degree of racial polarization in this region. In this day and age, multinational companies are looking to attract the top talent. You dont think they are not aware of the St. Louis racial climate?
To maintain your utopia, The GhettoLink will be needed in your area if you dont want the blacks living next door to you as they commute to their low paying service jobs in your area from the hood and the cost of gas eats more into your take home pay. On the other hand, I think you have enough rednecks in StChuck to fill the demand. You can only move so far out from the urban core before you realize your two to four hour commute is asinine. I would much rather have those times to spend with my family. As a gift to your children, you can vote for mass transit now so they wont have to pay quadruple the cost later due to the fact that we will have to import most of construction materials from China and other counties and the Euro will be the standard world currency.
