Most of the locals are clannish. Newbies tend to attract each other for company.

The Democratic Party is the root of all evil in the universe, particularly in Greeneville. Always has been and always will.

The County Commission has a bunch of Democrats who voted to raise our taxes. The city government is run by a group of people who look out for certain other powerful people, and they get rid of people who stand in their way.

Don't you mean Republicans on the County Commission voted to raise our taxes. I think that there are only three members of the whole group of about 21 who are Democrats. The rest are all Republicans.

Having a vocabulary will make you more hated than a pedo with a flame throwing cock.

You need to learn to be a introvert here, cause it is really hard making any friends, I have lived her 5 years and have not made a single one. At first I was excited about making friends but it seem to never happen so I just accept it. This place is a little weird like that.

Don't go to the restroom at the Hide-Away without a friend watching the entrance. Preferably, with a bazooka.

I have been here a few years longer than you and feel the same. Don't take it personally, in the South the smiles and waves are purely manners, how people are raised, they really aren't as friendly as they first appear. Greeneville is a clannish place where everyone knows everyone and lots of people don't see the need to develop new relationships. Their lives are already full.
Add to that the fear that new people who are not bible beating Christians and who have new ideas will move in and try to change things...or take the scarce jobs in this town and it stands to reason that most people in Greeneville are not overly friendly. I look at it this way, they are affable and not likely to be hateful. Even with the drug issues here, violent crime is relatively low. I certainly feel safer than where I previously lived.
Greeneville is not ideal, but is anyplace? It is all a trade off...boring and affable vs. exciting and dangerous.

Lessons learned in Greeneville, hmmm....

This is a Small Town, and you foreigners (defined as: anyone not born and raised here!) are not wanted. Leave your money and get out.

If you don't thump your bible daily you are beneath notice and should be killed.

If you do thump your bible and talk the talk, you have a free pass to commit adultery, pop pills, guzzle beer, and beat your wife. Y'all is good!

If you are not filled with hatred at the mere mention of Gays, Lesbians or Transgendered people, you should be killed. You're not One of Us!

Gays, Lesbians, and Transgendered folk are the spawn of Satan and to be hated, feared, and killed if at all possible. They are less than human, less than dogs. Yes these people believe that!:(

Tennessee is slowly being dragged into the 21st century and one day Greeneville will be too!

Instead of just criticizing his opinion can you rebut it?
