I hate to burst your bubble, but outside our state, West Virginians are not known as honest, hard-working, down-to-earth people. They are known (broadly speaking) as gap-toothed, beer-guzzling, uncouth, lazy-boned, ******** in love with guns, trucks, and pentecostal snake-waving lunatics. Most of us aren't, of course, but for anyone who respects the best of who we are, Buckwild was a tragedy start to finish. It did nothing to showcase our beauty, intelligence, grace, generosity, or pride. It did everything to showcase everything negative about our state. What the Beverly Hillbillies and Jesco White couldn't accomplish, Buckwild was all set to do - to convince everyone that deep in the heartland of our great country there is a place where apes and inbreds still roam free, providing endless hours of entertainment for the rest of the civilized world. No, this show was a train wreck, and the deaths were tragic, the show never should have seen the light of day.

Walker you are such a LIAR true to your party's attributes.

I have dozens of relatives who've moved into Virginia, North Carolina, Florida and other states like Ohio and I KNOW for a FACT that those states hear you are a West Virginian and hire you On-the-Spot. Employers in North Carolina told my own cousins that they LOVE hiring people that move here from WV because THEY WILL WORK! Good for us WORKERS that the nonworking lazy bums in WV stay put here as they would prove this to be untrue if they went to these states. Of course those lazy liberal thinking 'entitlement' grabbers wouldn't be LOOKING for a j-o-b anyway. lol.

Your OWN words PROVE you are NOT a West Virginian-BORN & raised. You are one of those angry, rebel without a cause liberal types who NEVER have anything good to say about anyone or anything and move HERE trying to make life miserable for us too. We don't want pessimists like you here especially outsiders. Get a life and stop being so darn miserable 24x7.

Well with people like Walker, who needs other states badmouthing us? Admit it Walker....you are NOT a true born West Virginian. I've NEVER heard a WV born person speak like YOU. And I am born/raised in WV.

Nope, sorry, but I AM West Virginia born and bred and remember the days when West Virginians were proud to work together for the common good (now called socialism) and when a representative like Jennings Randolph was actually representing our interests and a decent West Virginian would never have allowed a program like Buckwild on the air. Unlike many West Virginians I have lived out of state and have heard first-hand what others say about us. It isn't flattering and I usually have to set them straight. I see you managed to get in workers vs. lazy bums - again, to you a GOP/DEM issue.... I find it interesting that if I don't agree with you I am either an outsider or a liar. Could it be that your thinking has narrowed to the place where all you are able to conceive is the Rush Limbaugh crap fed to us every day on Family Radio? I'm West Virginian enough to know that we're better than to swallow everything that is shouted at us.

Oh, and may I remind you that not only is Limbaugh an "outsider" but so is everyone on Fox "news", American Family Radio, most of whom couldn't even find West Virginia on a map. Senator Manchin was the only one who seems to call it as he sees it.

Oh, one more thing - what is an "angry without a cause liberal type?" I'm not angry, and I have an important cause - keeping people's eyes open - and as for liberal... JFK - who cared about West Virginians - summed it up: …if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.

Walker.....dare you to walk into any bar in the state and start badmouthing WV citizens. You won't because you are NOT a WV citizen born here and raised....you are absolutely an outsider arrogant a-hole that comes here and thinks they are going to change us and this state. Well, theres MORE Of us than you and we don't want your kind here so get over your whining little self and deal with that fact or go back to whatever yankee h-e-l-l hole you came from. Ticks you outsiders off don't it that we don't and won't have to be TOLERANT of your arrogant moronic character eh??? GOOD!
