    which is in the farthest reaches of Northeast Texas, within spitting distance of the LA border and just down the road from Texarkana, the town on the border of Texas and Arkansas.  I keep trying to tell you people about the culture of East Texas and the people who live there:  they are the quintessential "rednecks" with all that moniker implies; they were Democrats when the Democrats were the racist, segregationist party; they hate the government even though they rely on it and they wouldn't know hypocrisy if it bit them in the ass.  These people are deeply anarchist, wilfully ignorant, and proud of both.  Ashmore is the personification of the frame of mind that declares:  n***s are deadbeats and welfare queens living high off our taxes, and where is my government check that I righteously deserve?!
