Hats off to Obama for getting support to that community so fast.... He could have opted to take a few selfies and send some tweets of support instead

Because they're hillbillies

There is some amazing country in Vest Virginia..

New River Gorge Bridge, but most of the state is not very populated, and they have lots of great hunting, deer, black bears..

Lot's of history to the state, but boy in the winter is it a pain on the hills, many bigger than BC Coquihalla climb.

Define hillbilly, Billy from the hills

Tay, I'm just curious here, because you do seem to be the master of the back-handed compliment, but do you ever compliment someone on their weight loss by stating they aren't as fat as they used to be?

Again, just curious......
I think it might be a Canadian thing with the number 24
