being from generations of hillbillies, I can tell you we have a heart and so do most. We may not be the most educated or sophisticated, but we mostly try to work hard, live frugal, help everyone who we can and try not to hurt anyone.

This bunch of miscreants does not exactly fit those qualities.

My family is from the Kentucky Mountains and many still reside there. I can tell you that my Maw Maw who never uttered a cuss word in her life would be horrified by that gang. My hardworking farming family is fed up with Trumpf and Company's antics and I don't think they'd waste an old, blind bluetick hound to send out and run him up a tree. They also want nothing to do with Peabody Coal, either. They want decent paying jobs that won't kill you from black lung by time you're 40. That picture is pretty damn funny, but leave us Kentuckians out of THAT mess!

Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO still stands as a testament to the show.

you see, just like the clampets, they came from somewhere else to settle in Beverly Hills.

Capital Hill is where they live now.

I like that title better.

just a suggestion

Can you imagine - most of the young'uns on DU don't even get the joke.
Anybody under 40 has probably never seen the original show.

21. I just remember how Elly May had three things going for her
Sat Jul 22, 2017, 10:30 PM
Jul 2017

First, she was good looking. Second, she was no nonsense (remember how she was always trying to steer Jethro away from his stupid schemes?). Finally, she had a lot of well trained animals. I really couldn't decide which of the three was the most important. All I knew at that young age was that I wanted the show to focus more on her.

Come listen to a story bout a man named Don
He acted real back-woodsy, but that was jus' a con
Swindlin' and misogyny is what propelled this dude
cause right down to his core - this guy was really crude

A-livin' like a king with his kinfolk close at hand
He thought the title, President would suit him really grand
He colluded with the Kremlin for the nomination score
An' found himself a-walkin' thru the oval office door

One tiny observation: should be "FIRST OFFICIAL and LAST SEASON"

Where'd you find this? Your creation??? If so, you've real talent and should publish.
