The whole point is that they are not QUOTES from his writing.

I know I shouldn't, but... 1,3 &4 are quotes from his books.

2 is from some article so the quote is not Obama's.

The last two have been reworded to tweek the meaning.

All are being taken out of context.

Now back to the thread topic:

What's purple and gray and flies around Toivola?

A guy with a toad on his forehead walks into a psychatrist's office. The Shrink asks "How did THAT happen"? The toad speaks up and points at his ass and says "It started with a wart back here"

I am pretty sure Obama said "I was born a poor black child."

or maybe that was Bill Clinton.... ah, I have nothing to add here..

Guess I'm weird. I don't find ignorant, racist, murderous jokes to be funny.
to each his (or her) own.. i guess i dont take things that serious.. maybe it's the pollish in me but racism in jokes really dont bother me as long as its a joke and not meant to be cruel.

I got a Fathers Day card from my son who lives in Las Vegas. On the bottom he wrote: "Dad, this card originated in Las Vegas, the land of fake tits and real assholes"

I really can't add to what Deborah and SLF said but I do want to say that I'm sickened and disappointed by what some of you have said. The original joke was so obviously based on untruths and hate that I don't see how anyone could possibly find it funny and how someone could post one of those internet emails that are written to intentionally sway the public toward hatred with untruths without having the common sense to look into the validity of it is incomprehensible to me. It's irresponsible and I'm appalled by it.

Rereading my post was amusing. I'm so dramatic at times. Still, I've been very surprised and dismayed at the crazy lies circulating. I guess that's really all I have to say about it. So dwt, we'd have to go to the politics section to discuss further. And I'm not inclined to at the moment.

The only thing I have to say about this is that I'm surprised YOU'RE surprised at this. Manipulation of dis-information has been pretty much S.O.P. for the political arena for the last two hundred years or so.

Good point.

BTW, I have Snopes in my favorites on both work and home computers. I'm very vigilant when it comes to correcting retransmitted bullshit. I like to use the 'reply to all' function when doing it too.

Q: How did the blonde break her leg raking leaves?

A: She fell out of the tree.

Your response was to my response to Chemi's response to Rommy being suprised at all the disinformation being spread, so though not relavant to the thread, it was to the discussion/direction the thread had taken.
