We are from a "less educated" area. Doesn't mean we're stupid. That means the level of education..(Elementary, High School Diploma, GED, 2 year degree, 4 year, masters or doctorate)..

I think we all know plenty of college educated folks who are dim and plenty of people with a HS diploma or GED who are sharp as a tack. I don't think the congressman's comment was meant to be an insult.

After actually finding the article you're talking about, seems you're wrong. He didn't say that. A professor from Vanderbilt did. And again, it's not an insult.

At least DesJarlais voted against the Indefinite detention act (NDAA) and against SOPA (Internet killing bill).

Hmmmm? It seems that Desjarlais needs to get order in his Washington D.C. office as well as his doctor's office in Jasper. Word is they are loosing patrons by the droves and he is having trouble paying his bills there as well.

The stamps had adhesive banks so the Licking was not required but that meant the mail man had wet fingers from the snow

$2.24 for stamps is a bargain but that meant there was more free funds to buy chips and a tank of gas

A woman like you should have a man that is drop dead brutally handsome. I have all my hair and no one has ever said that I look like Homer Simpson on a real bad day. I can even be a ONE WOMAN man too.

Less educated compared to what?

(If he used the $224,000 to redecorate his office in a "Downton Abbey" theme then he can stay. In the closet.)

The coats were not packed from the closet so $224 was spent at the food store and the glass broke setting off the alarm but they had weapons cleared
