maybe true. However, your problem is with him mentioning God's name.
People change. Why do you and others insist on trying to be GOD and try
to make people look bad? What skeltons are in your closet. Judge not and
you will not be judged by God.

The irony... it burns!

Comment: Concerning the snopes report on "Oliver North warns about Osama
Bin Ladin and the 1987 Iran Contra hearings. The first time this email
circulated there was a clip of the hearings with Al Gore questioning
Oliver North where the we could hear the warmings about Osama Bin Ladin.
Why would this whole story be rewritten twisting the original hearing? It
seems to me that "Snopes" has an agenda!!! and its not to tell the truth
and stop false stories!! hum??!!

Comment: What is your proof that the President did not order the new
Muslim postage stamp?

What is your proof that the President did not order the new Muslim postage stamp?
The fact that it's not "new" and was issued several years before the current President took office, for starters.

Comment: Sorry but you are wrong on your 2009 Capitol Christmas Tree
information. The original letter sent out by the governor or Arizona DID
state that religious or political content could not be used. I have a
copy of that letter and below is the url for you to see yourself. The
requirements were changed only after ADF (Alliance Defense Fund) sent a
letter to the Federal government stating this requirement to be unlawful.
I'll include that url too. Please, it only took me 10 minutes to get this
information you could have had as well before replying in error.

Comment: Uncle don's nasty comment is absolutely true..

I was 6 or 7 years old and listened every day he was on.

After he said "Bastards" I asked my older sister, who was 13 years older
than I, what bastard meant. She said "a child of a mother who was not
married". Bastard has been a part of my vocabulary ever since. I am
still alive (age 81) but my sister is not.
The station was WJZ I think.

Can you prove that he did not say it? Newspapers at that time must have
discussed this and his denial should also be available.

My memory is so clear on this life changing event that Snopes has lost its
validity for me unless you can prove absolutely that he did not say it.

Comment: This is in response to the article at:

It states the former Israeli Intelligence officer appearance on Bill
O'Riley is false. However, if you follow the link below at fox news, they
have the story:,2933,161962,00.html

Perhaps it is exaggerated in the email, but it's still there. This makes
me question this site's reliability.

Comment: On your response to Target practice. You have one
misrepresentation and one clear mistake.
Target does keep the Salvation Army from bell ringing in front of its
stores. It is their policy whether it is written or verbal. Check Bowling
Green Kentucky Target store 2007, 2008. I personally asked them about that
and they stated they do not allow any one to solicit outside their store.
Second, the misrepresentation that Target gives ONLY to gay and lesbian
causes is misleading. They give to many activist causes including Gay and
lesbian causes. They do not give to many military support groups however.
Your statement purposely limits the scope by using the word "only" and
there by distorts the context and the meaning. I use you regularly to
validate items so I am not spreading false rumors. Lately I have been
running into your misrepresentations more often, which undercuts your
validity, which is what your service is based on. Either your present the
truth with out bias, or you are not a valid source for the service you
claim to provide.
I must say, poorly done on the Target report.
I would like a response. Thank you for your time.

You are an idiot.

How's that for a response?

Seriously. I mean, the 'reading is hard' thread I get, people don't make it all the way through the entire synopsis after the example. They don't read the whole article, they're lazy. But in this one the True/False for both of those bits is right there above the example, smacking you in the face when you open the page.

And this person claims they're running into your "misrepresentations" more often? They're a regular user and they don't get that? Yikes.

Comment: This web page is wrong. should display as "FALSE"


Photo Bob 01 December 2009 06:41 PM

Now that is what I call logic!

1) Read article.

2) Find other random articles with information not pertinent to the original article.

3) Use said articles to disprove the original article.

Here's an example for those that do not want to read too much:

Article states it is illegal for a man to marry an elephant.

Find an article about how the cost of a marriage license is going up in the state of Florida and another about what the average couple spends on the wedding ceremony and reception. Find an opinion piece about how poachers are killing elephants for their tusks.

Use that information to prove that it is, in fact, legal for a man to marry an elephant.

Comment: Re: Blockbuster Coupon

To whom it may concer,

I wanted to comment on the Blockbuster Coupon that you have listed as
false (under Inboxer Rebellion --> Something for Nothing). I have used
this coupon several times at my local blockbuster. I was able to obtain
it as a prize through I believe it was worth 125
points. This is a prize that comes and goes. Just wanted to pass this
along as being a Truth.

Comment: You have the facts wrong again. Please go to the Congressman
John Fleming website to check the facts on HR615. Also go to . You have a great tendency to
favor the liberal hogwash and should recheck ALL your facts on your entire
website because you misrepresent the truth too many times in too many

Comment: Hi snopes:
I just got an e-mail about Obama's citizenship and as usual, I always go
to your website to check things out.
I pulled up this topic, I immediately saw that it was false.
I went down to the first point about there not being any Americans for
Freedom of Information" group. I just checked and there is.
Now I'm just a regular person, right in the middle politically, however,
if you are not printing accurate things, then there is no use for your
I would suggest that you be more careful about your research.

snopes 31 December 2009 10:10 AM

Comment: You have an outdated or incorrect article based upon "old news"
that is now a real case in court in Santa Ana,
with released Occidental records showing that Obama attended Occidental as
an Indonesian Muslim, under a Fulbright scholarship, given by the us govt.
This is now fact, before now, it was suspicion and hearsay. Occidental was
required to release the records to Judge Carter of Santa Ana. Enough of
that; If I didn't have to retire at this early hour of the morning, I
would commence to give you more facts to scrutinize and sources to verify
those facts.
