New jargon?

Lately I've been seeing the number "III%" on the decals of trucks, usually with the Leonidas' response of "Molon Labe."

Does anyone know what this means?

During the American Revolution, the active forces in the field against the King’s tyranny never amounted to more than III% of the colonists. Three percenters today, for the most part, identify with this 3% because they were true patriots fighting for the freedoms the nation we love and honor was founded on. Three percenters intend to maintain their God-given natural rights to liberty and property.

Thanks, Chuck. I never heard the back story, but suddenly every redneck truck in my area started sprouting these decals.

It makes sense. I was reading a book on the Revolutionary War, and it turns out that Francis Marion and his little band of volunteers were the only patriots guarding Washington's southern flank. They did so seldom using direct confrontation, but harassing stragglers, stealing munitions bogging down British advancements.

I tend to be more "redneck" than "white collar" ....I can live with that.

Hey, I'm a redneck, got a 1997 Ford F-150 to prove it.

I think "redneck" has a regional meaning. In Wisconsin, it just means a guy who spends time outdoors, fishing or deerhunting.

In the south, it's an epithet.
