Comment: i have heard that the movie Paranormal Activity is not a true
story nor was it a documentary with actual footage. i was told that it is
ficticious and acted out, similar to the blair witch project. can you tell

Comment: Hi. I heard a bit on the TV news a while back something about
Obama saying something about 'blacks will not be prosecuted for crimes
against whites' - about 3 - 4 months ago. Was that correct, or do I need
my hearing aid replaced?

Kenya

Comment: About the fire killing only the lazies, not the white couple:

I'll speculate that the addition of Muslim Kenyans is an anti-Obama
addition, given his Kenyan roots & alleged Muslim affiliation.

Comment: As for the internet "forward" that shows Congressmen playing
games etc. on their computers. You claim that it's true, but regardless,
it's very misleading to say the least, since those involved in
constructing the message didn't even have the honesty to say which
"House". Naturally, many people, if not most, will see this and think
it's the U.S. House. This is more than likely deliberate just to get
people stirred up and keep the forward going.

Comment: Reading about the Koobface virus and it struck me that Koob
spelled backwards is book, so that you have face book when reading right
to left. Coincidence?

Comment: An e-mail going around lists your URL
http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama...rs/booklet.asp verifying as
TRUE that a 1991 literary booklet lists Obama as born in Kenya and your
site (URL Above) indicates that this is true.

No, but they will repossess all the electricity you've used since your account was last paid up.
