Comment: Your response is NOT THE SCAM THAT I PRESENTED YOU.

THIS scam is completely different and is presented in the email completely
differently than what you forwarded me.

I imagine your staff cannot handle the incoming of bad behavior. I hoped
to help folks but I guess I cannot. Thanks anyway.

Comment: Your comments and defense of the Obama's in the picture where
they are saluting the flag or pledge of allegiance with their left hands
is totally erroneous. You say the Marine in the background has his medals
on the wrong side. Absolutely wrong!!! His medals are on his left side
which is correct. Michelle's hair is parted on her left side which is the
side it is usually parted. This perhaps is a fake picture but your defense
of the Obama's is not factual.

C'mon, snopes, get off your lazy butt! We expect a specific debunking of every single permutation of every single scam email forward that's out there! Is that too much to ask?

Pal, you have no idea what my staff can handle.

(Also, what the heck are you talking about?)

Comment: I need some serious help here... more than just local (US) help.
I have a friend, from Africa - who heard there is a US lottery - and is
asking me to help him. I asked him to send me the link... it seems
genuine - but there is not earthly way our government is doing this...
please tell me I am right:

https://www.dvlottery.state.gov/

There is an entire NATION of poor folk trying to get into our lottery?
Our NATIONAL lottery?

Comment: Regarding the article on Where they are now and the Fannie May
Exec's; Why are the references used all over three years old when Obama
has only been in office for three years.

Comment: About the article "Obama removes US Flag from Air Force One" ----
I read with interest the truth which you did research and I understand
what really happened.... It is just sad that in the final picture of the
truly "Air Force One" that they placed the flag flying backwards, which is
the way the country has gone under Obama's administration.

Comment: You people are nothing but liars and are "in the tank" with
obama.
His long form birth certificate was a forgery because it had pdf "layers"
in it and was proven to be built in a pdf format which, by the way, if
your such an idiot that think we had pdf back then. Besides, it is a known
fact that obama fired the guy who released that on the internet because of
that (stupid) mistake!!!
LIARS

It was proven! We're not going to tell you where, when, how, or by whom, but it was proven and you are all liars IN THE TANK.

Comment: Chevy Volt article

Your article says $1.16 per kwh - I couldn't find anywhere where it was
that low.

http://www.electricchoice.com/electr...s-by-state.php

I love to reccommend Snopes to people all the time - but - this is a
pretty big outrageous mistake.

YOu have undermined my faith in your ability to report correctly.

The headline from the article they supplied is
Quote:
The U.S average residential retail price of electricity was 11.53 cents per kilowatt-hour in 2010
Wow. That is stupid.

Comment: The photo of the Navy Seal Team Six is NOT of figurines and your
report is completely false. If you will blow up the photo and look at the
figures closely, you will see muscle definitions, hair on arms,
fingernails, etc., etc., etc. I am stunned that you gave such a false
report. I do expect you to retract the "false" statements you gave.
Politics should NEVER interfere with truth. The world can take away a lot
from you, but never your honesty. Only you can do that.

The emailer wants to blow up Seal Team 6? Isn't that treasonous?

I wonder - if I asked this guy to lend me $50, but paid him $.50 back, would he notice? (Could I pay him $.58 and tell him I added interest?)

He want's to blow up a picture of Seal Team 6. As distasteful as that may be, like flag burning, it's protected speech.
