V.E.R.Y. Interesting..............
« on: March 12, 2012, 09:58:48 PM »

The below was sent to me in an email, complete with pictures of the individuals mentioned.  I tried to copy and paste it in its entirety, but the pictures did not come through.

Oh well...you will still get the gist of things.

Can you say, "It's not what you know, it's WHO you know?????"


Now Mr. DeCarolis was considering firing their
Basketball Coach.......
Craig Robinson

after an 8 -11 start (2-5) in the Pac 10 conference).
When word reached Washington , Undersecretary of Education
Martha Kanter

was dispatched to Corvallis with $17 million
in stimulus money for the university.
Thankfully, Craig Robinson's job is safe for another year

Now comes the interesting part of our story....
For those of you unfamiliar with Coach Robinson,

he just so happens to be the brother in law
of none other than our country's beloved President Obama,

NOW YOUR CATCHING ON......
that's right he is the brother of Michelle Robinson Obama!

But hey, can't we all come to the conclusion
that Coach Robinson's
job security was all just a coincidence?
I'm sure of it .... Aren't You?
Thank Goodness For The Stimulus!!!
But $17 million for one job? I wonder what mine is worth?
If this doesn't anger you, nothing will... remember to vote in 2012 !!!!!!

It's only what you know when you research the facts. First of all, that "news" is from 2010.  And if you check this snopes link you'll see the story is false. 

Don't like snopes?  Try Truth or Fiction

You could also check FactCheck

Or maybe About.com Urban Legends

There are quite a few more....but I'm too lazy to post links for them all.  A simple Google search will bring them up for you.



I GET IT Suzanne....you hate Michelle Obama (and her husband). 

There are enough legitimate issues to complain about without resorting to chain emails.

Seren, the moment you made the charitable contribution of flexing some of your intellectual curiosity and doubting the validity of the original post is what made you the least lazy person who has posted to this thread.  :)

Gotta love it when someone falls for anything that arrives in the email box.
I toss out stuff that I know isn't directly meant for me and 99% of anything forwarded to me be folks that I do know. If I spent my time looking at all the stupid emails with, "fwd fwd fwd fwd fwd" on them I wouldn't have a real life to get on with.

There is a lot of nonsense out there now, mainly plants to divert focus away from the issues that mean the most to Americans - namely the economy, inflation, joblessness, government corruption and staggering national debt.

A prime example is a story  that a significant number of Republicans in Alabama and Mississippi believe Obama is a Muslim.  When one digs into the story a bit it comes out the story originated from a so-called poll conducted by the Democratic front organization Public Policy Polling. 

We're going to see a lot of Chicago type gutter politics this year so be on the alert.

Are you saying many Republicans are gullible fools and conspiracy theorists?

Yeah, I'll agree with that.

Absolutely not:  I'm taking about  an unreliable and likely falsified, made-up poll.  The methodology didn't even involve talking to live voters.

Cabal. Another word for the vast left-wing conspiracy. The same one that started the 9/11 "Truthers." The same one that insists -- with a straight face, no less, that the MSM leans right.

Not to veer off course here, but there is no "a little" anything about stimulus money. And it's not raising many if any boats -- save for the FOBs. It is, rather, sinking the ship of our state.
