Comment: In your "questions of Voter Fraud in 2012 Election" you stated in
the last paragraph that Obama lost in all states that actually required
voters to show a photo ID. I live in CT, and we must show valid photo ID,
and Obama won this state.

I'm not trying to be nasty or accusatory, but it seems that more often
than not, your sites answers lean quite heavily toward protecting the
left-wing from any criticisms.

It's bad enough that this person doesn't know what she's talking about; it's even worse that she can't figure out which side she's arguing.

If we had falsely claimed that Barack Obama lost in a state that required photo ID, as this person is suggesting, we would be supporting the anti-Obama position that his victory was due to voter fraud; we wouldn't be "protecting the left-wing from any criticisms."

Comment: I'm writing to comment on the photograph titled "spare ribs"
about the woman who corset trained to a 15" waist. Obviously, she didn't
have ribs removed, but neither did the Victorians! You state in the
article that Victorian women are rumored to have taken drastic surgical
steps to ensure their small waists, and that in itself is a completely
unsubstantiated rumor!
There are no proven accounts, or medical records, of women undergoing
surgery to attain a small waist. In the nineteenth century elective
surgery just wasn't done. Surgery was extremely dangerous and painful,
and no doctor or patient would even consider removing ribs!
Wearing a tight steel boned corset can compress ribs, as well as internal
organs, but as soon as the corset is removed everything goes back where it
belongs! Corsets have gotten a bad rap over the decades, but they're
perfectly safe. I love your website, don't promote untrue rumors while
debunking others!

Comment: Check your facts on “death spiral” states – Mississippi voted Republican in 2008 and 2012 in the Presidential election and many of their politicians are republican – check on that, please!!!

Comment: You put how the Beatles song Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds was a
reference to LAD as 'false' on your site, but Paul McCartney himself has
said otherwise. Please check this link to the Washington Post (taking an
excerpt from the full interview at Uncut Magazine)

"He confirmed that drugs influenced some of the group's songs. "A song
like 'Got to Get You Into My Life,' that's directly about pot, although
everyone missed it at the time," McCartney said. " 'Day Tripper,' that's
one about acid. 'Lucy in the Sky,' that's pretty obvious. There's others
that make subtle hints about drugs, but, you know, it's easy to
overestimate the influence of drugs on the Beatles' music."

Comment: In reading your information about "death spiral," I believe you
are incorrect about the state of Mississippi. I believe you will find
that Mississippi voted Republican in the last 2 presidential elections
(2008 and 2012)and they vote for many Republicans or conservative
candidates in government. I live in Mississippi and have both white and
black friends and they are concerned more with Christian Biblical and
moral issues - therefore, they vote conservative. Thank you!

Comment: You might want to re-visit your claim about the Queen James
Bible, as it is now available for $34.95 at Amazon.com. Hard to claim it's
a hoax with over 100 reviews and a shipping cost.

Comment: Your information on redbull is WRONG.
http://www.snopes.com/medical/potables/redbull.asp

It clearly states on the redbull website that it contains
Glucuronolactone.

http://www.redbull.com/cs/Satellite/...=1242940968247

Your site says not does NOT. Sadly, snopes research has been falling by
the wayside and more and more things are being reported incorrectly on
this site. I cannot tell you how many times I have been told not to trust
this site. Now I know why.

Yes, I can see how our stating that "Red Bull does contain glucuronolactone" (emphasis in the original) might be confusing to some readers.

Comment: You are reporting that Leptospirosis is Not true. YOU are
misinformed. Pleases look up Leptospirosis @ PubMed Health and duke it out
with their report. This disease/illness is real and you are allowing the
public to discard the potentially deadly infection

Yes, I can see how our labeling the statement "The potentially deadly illness Leptospirosis can be contracted through exposure to the urine of diseased animals" as TRUE might be confusing to some readers.

Comment: on "Sandy Hook Exposed" it is stated that the AR15 claimed to
have been used in the murders was not found in the trunk of the Honda. It
was taken inside with two other handguns and the weapon found in hte trunk
was a shotgun. Do your research. The AR15 was found in the vehicle, never
taken inside. Four handguns were taken inside the school.

Comment: There is something very odd listed as Obama's fifty Lies which is
a mix of lies and often distortions....one being that he has said his
grandmother has always been a Christians, which was labeled as LIAR,
followed by the quote that she says her Islamic prayers daily, etc.
That's pure misdirection as his other, much grandmother, the one who
helped raise him, is very much a Christian.

Surely you don't mean to have this kind of trash right up front in you
Google search do you?

Comment: you have labled this
http://www.snopes.com/politics/medical/microchip.asp as false?
where did you get your information???
in reading the full txt of the H.R. act 4872, found here:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/28572002/R...4872-Full-Text

it states starting on page 1013 that this is in fact true.

maybe you should change your "facts"????

No, you are thinking of Snopes, Kitty Kat, though he has since dropped the "Kitty Kat" from his name.

I think Snoops invented glass.

Comment: I just watched Al Gore SAYING to Wolf Blitzer in a taped
interview that he invented the internet. I actually remember this
interview and watched it live at the time. You have falsely stated he did
NOT say it. The link is attached. Please correct this on your site.
