Okay. I've lived in Missouri my whole life. This state is very very beautiful there are no oceans YOU'RE RIGHT. But if you drive down one of the several gravel roads and view all the scenery that is BEAUTIFUL you might be able to see one of the THOUSANDS of fresh water rivers! There are no inbred people here! Yes, there are trailors as there are trailors in EVERYSTATE! Rednecks yes we have a few, get over it they're everywhere. Our people are wonderful and they know how to live life wonderfully and enjoy it without having their noses stuck up! In states like California, and Florida people snub you. In Missouri we wave and smile everywhere :). We may be down home or live in small towns, but we are all friends and we have a great time! And all our children go to nice schools and are very educated. Missouri is not Misery! So please before you bash on some nice Midwestern people! You might just drive through and see what it's all about. Because ignorance can be so overwhelming! :P
We are proud to be from Missouri! It's the most beautiful state full of wonderful people! Come see us!
