    I have law and order people on the town FB page telling their liberal neighbors to arm up for protection. Alas, when I went into the town gun store and demanded that the owner sell me a gun he wouldn't. Was good enemy rcon though. I leaned another piece about people who want violence. My Ranger dad said to never fear anyone unless they want to shoot you. Ill be he never thought it would be government mercenaries or neighbors I had to fear. I'm glad he is dead so he doesn't have to endure this. You should be proud. Strong work. For your side. The armed and threatening to shoot me side. Have a nice day.

    Racy stories about hookers and blow aside, snopes has morphed into something useless as a source of truth today. There is no rigid process of verification, there is no oversight on fact checkers.

    I use it as a source of direction, not as a bible.
    Have people lost the ability for critical thinking? I vote yes. Man is lazy by nature.

    If there is no truth, there can be no democracy.

    I am old enough to remember the era of Cronkite and Brinkley when the news was near universally trusted, oh we have always had 'yellow journalism' in some form. Now the news must also be entertaining to fill 24/7 programming and we have anybody and their cousin spouting their views, not on street corners but in our living rooms.

    All I can say is look at more than one source and on occasion even those voices you disagree with.

    At this stage, I'd say snopes ins't even worth using as one of many initial sources to start cross referencing. Wikipedia is far more reliable, and that's saying something.

    drugs and hookers are only some of the dirt on those two weirdos, yet they managed to become lefty info guru's.
    information/ history seems to be quite fluid these days.

    have had 4 months off.
    searched the internets.
    happy to report, cnn/msm are lying sacks of shite.
    very happy to report that we are the news now.
    look at all the new content from individuals/ small groups.
    they are not controlled by the 5am news quotes sent out by 6 corps to 400 million people.
    small sites ( ww2f, etc ) can now compete against the talking heads controlled by soros and the other freaks.
    glorious times.
