Here's the thing I don't give a crap how to spell his name. His publication of your comments makes it all the more obvious that he is your buddy. You keep referencing my spelling. Yet the only thing I have spelled wrong is Pool's name. Funny how you can't seem to grasp reality. Oh wait no it's not you live in Pickens county. Yet you have stated emphatically that I have called you names. Nope haven't yet. I have stated with out a single doubt that most of the residents of Pickens county are red necks. Truth be told, it's a fact most of you didn't go to college and work labor jobs. That is the exact definition of a red neck. As far as your assumption about my career. I don't care what you assume. You don't know me. So your opinion of me means as much to me as the cost of boiled peanuts. Absolutely nothing. Try harder to troll me. I love watching you fabricate your own reality.

You obviously DO care what my opinion of you is since you keep responding. It's funny to hear you rage on about the community. I'm glad you find it a miserable place to be, and here's wishing that 2017 brings you more of the same. Out of curiosity, why did you pick being an attorney to lie about? Why not make yourself a physician, astronaut, or even an architect (a la George Costanza)? With so much crying, I bet you spend a fortune on tissue ....

I find it very disturbing that in 2017, idiots in this country INSIST everyone have the exact same opinion as them. Go back to the last presidential election. People rioted in the streets because their poor little Clinton lost. These people can't imagine a country with Trump as president and were willing to riot because of it. This back and forth here between the lawyer and the other man is but another example of ignorance. If you are so certain your opinion is the only one that could possibly matter, go live in another country. Not everyone has to think like you. The first amendment allows differing opinions. Differing opinions leading to fights, riots, constant back and forth bitching, like here, is juvenile. Move on, idiots!

You are defeating your own argument (such as it is) by referencing the first amendment then criticizing me or anyone else for expressing our opinions. As you accurately stated "Not everyone has to think like you." So take your own advice and run along quietly.

You really don't understand anything do you? Dan Poole disabled the forum a couple years back. Stating emphatically that he would not tolerate name calling back and forth between readers. I haven't called you a name or anyone else on this page. Nor will I ever. I think you are a badly brought up person. It's not your fault that your parents didn't teach you how to be a mature grown person so I forgive you. But I do not condone your behavior. It's ok though. I don't expect much when it comes to the behavior of the residents of Pickens county. They lack social skills because they have lived in the 50's since the 50's. But I do expect better of a publisher. But then again a rag that puts out a paper once a week and the articles are usually based on republican elections and deeds of the criminals in the area isn't really expected to have journalistic integrity. So spew all the nasty comments you want. You think it upsets me because it would upset you if someone said something about how low brow and unintelligent you are. But to me you are just another simple person who should probably be wearing a padded helmet. I smile when you respond because I know you are not all there.


If everyone here is such idiots that live in Pickens, why are you on here wasting your so precious time. Get a life you dumb***. By the way, not all Trump supporters are racist and I am not really sure where you even came up with that. You don't have to be a supporter to know low life idiots that are nothing more that cyber bullies and don't have enough to do with their life that talk crap to everyone on a paper that they don't even like. Quit reading it if your so above it!
