Comment: Your undisguised liberal bent is showing again. The
"neurosurgeon" item may or may not be false, but there is certainly
nothing in your summary that indicates that the claim is false. The issue
was never "Was the caller a real neurosurgeon?", the issue is whether
Federal guidelines or regulations have already been developed that
restrict approval of certain types of medical treatment based on age,
prior condition, or other factors (probably including, with this
administration, political affiliation--witness their "disaster
declaration" policies). So, set aside your liberal bias and do your job,
or simply state up front that you will whitewash any issue that reflects
badly on Obama and his minions.

Yeah, Snopes, what does going on and on about what the ANS and CNS said about it have to do with anything? I have a friend who is a rocket surgeon and he says there are toads on the moon that eat leopards. So there.

Comment: I was checking on the Burundanga that people put on business
cards. When I looked at your site, it said false, underneath the claim.
Is this correct?

Comment: snopes.com: Foreign Call Centers Must Transfer Customers to
U.S. Reps?

Should the "FALSE" rating be reviewed? I understand it is actually true.

Comment: Aw come on now. Some of your refutting of rumors at least has
some substance to it. Your rebuttle here does not exist. How about a an
example of the the ID cards used at the time that obama was supposed to be
there and a comparison of it to the "fake" card.
In addition, it would be interesting to see the bar code identification
data associated with the obama "card".
Even more so, a copy of the actual obama id card would be interesting and
informative.

I absolutely refuse to believe the card does not exsist until you show it to me. Please make sure it has the bar code information that was not part of it as well.

Comment: Seems to me that your analysis of the Tonopah Solar/DOE $737
million article could just as easily be determined to be mostly true, not
mostly false. Before this, I thought I could fairly well count on Snopes
to be factual; now feel like perhaps that this belief may be unwarranted.

Comment: Not only do I want to ask about a rumor that is new to me, but I
want to ask about an article I found on the snopes site in relation to it.
Recently an e-mail made it to me with an article informing me of the rfid
chip. This scared me to death!! I found out through someone else about the
snopes website. Snopes seemed to pretty much squash the rfid chip idea. I
guess i'm just looking for further validation here that the rfid chip
rumor is false and that all americans won't be required to get that. I was
relieved when I read the Microchip off the block article on snopes. I
would also like to find out how snopes is able to decipher what's true out
of all the hooey out there. The rfid chip just seems like a violation of
constitutional rights.
From : A concerned citizen.

Comment: I am reading the novel One Thousand White Women, The Journals of
May Dodd. I understand that it is true that in September of 1874,
Cheyenne warrior Little Wolf went to Washington, D.C., where he proposed a
plan to assimilate the Cheyenne people into white society via a Brides for
Indians exchange program. What I am wondering however is did the United
States government actually carry out this program in secret? Did the
government actually exchange 1000 white women for 1000 horses? And, if so,
was there really a May Dodd among the 1,000 white brides traded to the
Cheyenne and did she marry Little Wolf? Or is it all fiction (except the
actual request) as the author Jim Fergus states? Many people are saying
the novel is actually true despite the denial by the author.

Yes because the last person that you want to believe is the author of the book.

This issue was important enough to pull out the ALL CAPS. Therefore, it must be true. Q.E.D.

top thing has a RED dot and says FALSE. Why then if not correct, is such

IMS, snopes (or Snopes, I can't recall) has asked that we quit referring to that UL, even in jest.
