Theodore Roosevelt Quote


It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Texas Bar Complaint Against Range Resources (RRC) General Counsel

I wanted to update everyone on the continued intimidation tactics by David Poole, Sr. Vice President and General Counsel of Range Resources (RRC) against Sharon Wilson. As you know Range Resources (RRC) has tried to pull both myself and Sharon into depositions for lawsuits that we had nothing to do with. They are obviously trying to silence their critics, and using unprofessional, and unethical methods to accomplish this. After the latest attack on Texas Sharon's 1st amendment rights, it was apparent that their intentions were not to defend themselves in a lawsuit as they have suggested, but rather to punish those who have been critical of the manner in which they conduct their business. I felt that I had no other options but to file a formal compliant with the Texas Bar Association. Attorneys in every state have a standard of professionalism that they are bound to follow, and Mr. Poole and his outside attorneys are simply not following those standards. I believe that it is important for us to stand up for our freedoms here in America, otherwise we might as well quit now.

We criticize other countries for using unethical methods to silence critics, and yet we tolerate it here. Please share this, and post on your websites and blogs if you agree with this letter. We need to make sure that we expose these immoral tactics used by Range Resources (RRC). I am certain that most Range Resources (RRC) investors would not approve of these techniques. And please never forget; together we bargain, divided we beg. Links to all of the documents that support this complaint are included below. In closing, I want to personally thank all of those who took time out of their schedule to call Mr. Poole in support of Sharon Wilson.

Response to David Poole of Range Resources (RRC)

I wanted to make sure that everyone received my response to the letter that was sent by David Poole of Range Resources (RRC). Apparently he provided several people with a copy of the letter, and insinuated that Range Resource's (RRC) intention for issuing a subpoena to Sharon Wilson was not as I had suggested. However, in reality he was trying to clean up another mess that he made, good thing he is so accustomed to that.

Included are also several links to the multiple subpoenas that Range Resources has served me with. Mr. Poole denied this fact in his letter, while as you can see his name is on every subpoena. Therefore, you might consider Mr. Poole a liar, because he did not misrepresent the facts, or tell a half-truth, he lied. I know that many of you are not shocked by this, but feel the necessity to provide validation for my statements.

It is also my opinion that Mr. Poole is the mind behind all of the bullying and intimidation tactics that have happened in Southwestern Pennsylvania. Therefore, if you have had a bad experience with Range Resources (RRC), Mr. Poole is likely behind this.

I would ask that those who initially shared my request to call or email Mr. Poole, please share this message also. Mr. Poole shared his letter with some, and I want to make sure that everyone who made contact with him sees my response and supporting documentation , so that they fully understand Mr. Poole is nothing more than a paid-liar.

For those of you who did not get an opportunity to share your opinion with Mr. Poole via phone or email, I would encourage you to do so. Below is contact information for Mr. Poole and Mr. Sims who works for an outside law firm.

David Poole, is a Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Range Resources (RRC), and is no doubt the person behind these unethical, immoral, intimidation tactics. David Poole can be reached at 817.870.2601. I would ask that you call him, and simple tell him to "Leave Texas Sharon alone". You can do this anonymously, without giving him your name or any other information. If you would like to send him an email, he can be reached at dpoole@rangeresources.com.

The outside law firm that Range Resources (RRC) is using is Harris, Finley and Bogle and the primary attorney for this case is Andrew Sims. The number at this law firm is 817.870.8700. You should also call them and tell them to "Leave Texas Sharon alone".You can also contact them through their website at: http://hfblaw.com/index.php/contact/.

Texas Sharon Needs Help Against Range Resources (RRC)

Sharon Wilson, better know as "Texas Sharon", has been given a subpoena for deposition by Range Resources (RRC) because she has been writing about them on her popular blog, www.texassharon.com. This is nothing more than an attempt to silence Sharon and make sure that she does not saying anything negative about Range Resources (RRC) again. If you remember, Sharon was the person who attended the Natural Gas Industry Public Relations Conference and found that Range Resources (RRC), was implementing military style psychological operations in communities where they were facing resistance, and therefore Range Resources (RRC) is attempting to shut her up for that.

These intimidation tactics are nothing new, Range Resources (RRC) has tried to do the same kind of thing with me, but I manage to avoid a deposition. We need to make a stand against this clear attempt at intimidation, and help her avoid a deposition, which will amount to nothing more than a witch hunt. We need to make it clear that these sort of tactics are not going to shut us up. If we let them get away with this, we might as well give up the fight now, and forgo our 1st Amendment rights. If we allow this industry to turn loose a roomful of high paid attorneys on everyone who exposes them for what they are, do we really want freedom? Sharon has helped support many people around the United States, and provided them with the tools to defend themselves, it is time for us to be there for her.

David Poole, is a Senior Vice President and General Counsel for Range Resources (RRC), and is no doubt the person behind these unethical, immoral, intimidation tactics. David Poole can be reached at 817.870.2601. I would ask that you call him, and simple tell him to "Leave Texas Sharon alone". You can do this anonymously, without giving him your name or any other information. If you would like to send him an email, he can be reached at dpoole@rangeresources.com.

Together we bargain, divided we beg. None of us can match these companies financially; therefore, we must decide if we will stand together when one of us are in need. Making these two quick calls will only take a moment, and will do a tremendous amount to help Sharon. Please pass on this information to as many people as possible, and let's be there for Sharon as she has been for so many of us, and help expose this paper tiger.
