Winnfield is a cruddy town. The social infrastructure is nothin' but a hierarchy of buttkissers. Everybody wants to be somebody, but they ain't. It's full of corruption in the government. You can keep your job if you got somethin' on somebody. Dope is all over the place. You can see dealers walkin' the streets in broad daylight. No places to go, nothin' to do, and there never will be.

it's not that easy to move. sometimes your family obligations keep you here. jobs aren't that easy to get ANYWHERE, so you take the kind of job you can get. but there will be people who will argue with me about every point i just made. oh yea the drugs, and lack of stuff to do, it's like that in all small towns.

Yes, I agree that Winnfield is a scumbag town and the name should be "Scumbagfield". However. there ARE worse places to live. Would you like to live in Jonesboro, Arkansas, Pearl Mississippi, and countless other douchebag towns that are totally FULL of the worst kind of psychopaths the universe has to offer? Look at happened at the movie theatre in Colorado..12 dead? The 20 murdered adults and MOSTLY CHILDREN massacred in Connecticut? I could go on and on, but there would not be enough room
I am a Christian..maybe not the best in the world, but I do believe. But, to digress a bit, who am I more angry at? God?The psychos who have ruined and decimated several lives?(I DID say I am a Christian, right? I simply cannot comprehend these things happening tothe innocents who had a totally long, beautiful lives ahead of them??

I really don't know how to feel. I did say I am a Christian.But, I ask God, WHY? WHAT FOR?I know that the answer will come after I have six feet of topsoil over me..but, Christian or not,,I want an answer NOW!It is occurrences such as these that make me began to doubt., God, please help me and others like me to understand and accept. It has been said that the Lord moves in mysterious ways. Perhaps it is not meant to be understood until I and others like me pass away.

Regardless, God bless all of these innocent souls who had their lives ripped from underneath them, and their families damaged forever. In the meanwhile, I will continue to ask The Lord why these things happen and why to those that they do happen?

And furthermore, it amuses me to no end to see those 'church' members who wear light tinted sunglasses tp church because the glare from the lights hurts their eyes as a result of the 'activities' th participated in the night before. Yep, there just isn't anything to compare to having a hangover in church! I've witnessed it several times during the years I have lived here and attended church here (mainly because it was the church my parents attented

Someone above mentioned the option of moving. Not only arely there a total lack of jobs these days, consider the cost of picking up a family and moving them to a town that is more than likely just as shitty as this one is.Face it, we are glued, screwed, and tattooed, no matter which wsay we turn.

Ysa I said I am a Christian. But I am running out of things to believe and have faith in..I just figured it out.with the evil occurrences happening almost every day, just WHAT is there to believe in?God, you had better get to work because you are losing more of us than you are gaining.As of now I am renouncing my belief in The Holy Trinity. With things happening such as in Connecticut and other places, how can anyone believe. I quit.

Also, the next person I see at a funeral who says "it was God's will' is going go receive a pop in the chops. GOD"S WILL? GOD"S WILL THAT SOMEONE BE SHOT, STABBED, GUTTED, DECAPITATED<,ETC. I fail to see how it would be God's will to have these things and the above mentioned carnage.Yep, I quit.I started this post as a defense of faith in God, and in one fell swoop I have done a complete turnabout.
Believe how you wish. All I ask is a logical explanation as to WHY these things happen day after day.Until I pass away, I will not get an answer,,and the way I feel right now, I don't believe I will EVER get one. I have alweays considered myself to be rational. I fail, in my wildest dreams, to find ANY RATIONAL IN "ANY" of the 'explanations or "God's Will" debates.Nuff said. I await some rational explanation from those of you who
mindlessly endorse the "IT WAS GOD'S WILL"

Would you please name a town anywhere in the USA that is any better? I'd really like to know one.
Take a look at yourself.
I'm completely happy here , except for corruption, just as I've been happy in other places I've lived that had corruption. After all, it is not I that will eventually pay for the corruption of others. As far as dope on the streets, I don't partake, so that don't bother me if a person wants to harm their body; I keep my body free of harmful drugs so I can be happy. Some people in every place like to be socially prominent. I don't. So it doesn't bother me that it is their lifestyle and makes them happy. I much prefer the lifestyle that makes me happy.
I find plenty to do here and always have, just as I find things to do everyplace I go. I'm very, very happy. It is not what some others provides, or the choices others make for themselves;it is what I do myself and that is wonderful not to be dependent on others for my happiness. In the overall picture, could it just be you and not your surroundings, not the lifestyle of others that is the problem? There is one thing only that you can change and that is yourself. Forget what others do for their happiness and find your own.

A traveler came upon an old farmer hoeing in his field beside the road.

"What sort of people live in the next town?" asked the stranger.

"What were the people like where you've come from?" replied the farmer.

"They were a bad lot. Troublemakers all, and lazy too. The most selfish people in the world, and not a one of them to be trusted."

"Is that so?" replied the old farmer. "Well, I'm afraid that you'll find the same sort in the next town.

Disappointed, the traveler trudged on his way, and the farmer returned to his work.

Some time later another stranger, coming from the same direction, hailed the farmer, and they stopped to talk. "What sort of people live in the next town?" he asked.

"What were the people like where you've come from?" replied the farmer once again.

"They were the best people in the world. Hardworking, honest, and friendly. I'm sorry to be leaving them."

"Fear not," said the farmer. "You'll find the same sort in the next town."

Guilter made some good points. The "preachy" people need to put up or shut up. If you don't like it here, leave without excuses. If you won't leave, try to make it a better place. There are a lot of good people here.

Remember this, we don't have the drug problem that the surrounding towns have. This is quite an accomplishment since Winnfield is on the Houston to Monroe drug route.

Winnfield in the 1950s was good for who? With racism and segregation rampant, it's hard to believe it was better back than.

Winnfield in the 1950's was good for all who took advantage of what was here. We had good elementary and high schools and the Trade School where one could learn a trade and everyone could attend. There were jobs. So called "Racism and segregation" are only words that affects ONLY those who choose to enslave themselves behind those words, or who prefer to use the perceived notion that it is a barrier to progress and sit ENSLAVED by lack of initiative.
Remember, it is up to the individual to move forward and quit looking for handouts. QUIT EXPECTING SOMEONE ELSE TO DO THE WORK FOR YOU. Many new immigrants to this young country came as indentured slaves and had to work themselves out of it. Everyone in America has the opportunity to go to school, study hard and make something of themselves. Those who take personal responsibility can and have succeeded.

Well, you make my point! Thank you. Winnfield in the 1950's was good for ALL who took advantage of what was here! Those who are still complaining about racism or segregation, haven't taken advantage of whet we have here and all across the USA. Anyone who uses racism to keep them in slavery don't take advantage of all that is offered to them.

The difference between Winnfield of the fifties, and winnfield of today is that people were willing to work. Thats why we had numerous lumber mills, the salt mine, and other industries. If you opened a plant of any sort here today you wouldn't be able to find people to staff it. CCA, one of the parishes largest employers is continously short staffed. Why? Because people are lazy and don't want to work.

True of course. But don't waste your breath on people in denial of this. Anyone who says that education and opportunities were the same for everyone in the '50s is ignorant beyond belief.
