Political email forwards, ugh.

My camera is still broken, and I'm ill as a hornet.

So. Today I received yet another forwarded email about the supposedly true, evil nature of Barack Obama. I do not wish to ignite any kind of political debate, and I'm not going to start campaigning for either candidate. I personally think most politicians are not to be trusted. But please, check the validity of your forwards before you unwittingly propagate a bunch of hooey? Snopes.com is a good resource to compare your forward's possibly (and nine times out of ten absolutely) ridiculous claims.

It does nothing whatsover to benefit your party's cause, whether it be right or left, to spread untruths. We shouldn't have to be reminded, over and over, not to believe everything we read whether we want it to be true or not.

Have a nice day.

Thank you very much! :)

I am feeling much better. A morning out in our "Poke Forest" (which you would know about, had I bought a new camera yet) has refreshed me and put things back into perspective. I'm hoping to get a new camera this weekend!

Hi leanne, ugh, my husband's boss insists on sending him political emails too. It drives him crazy. :) Hope your feeling better.

Thank you, outer banks mom! It's really silly for me to let email bother me so much. All I have to do is delete and then forget them. But when a big load of obnoxious untruths and/or lies fills up your inbox every day it starts to grate on you! ;)
