re: #47 Old Liberal

Rusk county is the asshole of Wisconsin. Poor and dumb as shit. ISIS wouldn’t behead anyone there because they’d have to pry the heads out of their colons first

I swear, it didn’t use to be like that. When I first went there as a lad, it was a little hardscrabble, sure, lots of farms where the barns hadn’t been painted in pretty much forever … but it’s mean now. Mean and angry.

Was it the big copper mining operation that shat all over the land? The collapse of the blue-collar industries in Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls that fed into economic activity in the surrounding counties?

I’d also save asshole for one of the counties further north & east. There are some serious rednecky enclaves up near the U.P.
