Tantrum A *little* more specificity, please

Comment: Yeah, but you might try telling the TRUTH, not the truth as you would like to see it. Keep your damn politics out of it, you dirtbags.

Soapbox

Comment: The person from whom I received this is always sending me
right-wing diatribe that makes me crazy! I am not that naive to think that
everything the Democratic party does is above reproach. However, after
reading emails that are long, wordy, and purport to be the absolute truth
("don't bother with Snopes or Google"), I am immediately skeptical. I
'snoped' various forms of this email, but couldn't find anything to
address it as a whole or even its individual parts. I want to respond to
my 'friend' with some hard facts and tell her to get her stories straight
before she spreads such hate-inducing drivel. But, I can't find a direct
rebuttal to it. I'm hoping you can help.

Comment: I have received several notifications that now they will be charging per minute for time on the computer. This has come from several of my e-mail correspondents and I wondered if there is any truth to this information.

I'd forego the roll. I find children are excellent when eaten with some fava beans and a nice Chianti.

Comment: This happened to me one time riding in a church bus( old timer) in the hot summer. The bus stopped running. All the passengers on board prayed for the next half hour. Wonder of wonders it started up. I didnt have the nerve to tell them the carburator had vapor lock

On the contrary, it's all true (even #17). If I were you, I'd start sending large amounts of e-mail to everyone on your mailing list complaining about this sad state of affairs. That will get action from those in charge.

We have to stick together on this, or it will never end.

Comment: I just got an email regarding President Obama that seems like
misinformation to me. Could you check it out as to its authenticity?

No, it's false. You didn't just get that e-mail. We happen to know that you've been sitting on it for at least a week.

Comment: I was sent this today - i absolutley hate forwarded messages - it
is akin to sitting 10 people in a circle, whispering a statement to one of
them,and sending it around the circle seeing how it ends up changed with
the last person..these thngs morph, take on a life of their own as they
circulate around cyberspace...why people persist in blindly clicking
forward with some of these things I will never understand...
i tried to do some searches on your site to 'see' if this particular
statement turned up - and i am not sure who wrote the non-quoted text, and
it is not that i necessarily disagree with the commentator part of the
email - BUT i just wonder if this has any truth to the quote AND who
might have instituted/authored the regular comment part of the email...
