Email Credibility

I’ve noticed over the years that I have become less believing of forwarded email. Don’t get me wrong I still like getting the jokes but any type of news or legend forwarded through email is probably crap. Remember the one about Bill Gates tracking email and if you forwarded it to 600 people you would make like forty thousand dollars? Or how about the ones where if you send to 10 people right now, the name of the person you love will come across your screen, ‘try it, it worked for me’.

I’m guessing most of you hold the same views. If not please remove me from your address email book right now. There are however exceptions. I find that the older generation, those that never had computers all their lives, (namely my mother) are still gullible to these kinds of things. Not in the stupid social pranks like the send to 10 people and you will live a long and happy life kind but the legend and lore kind.

Today my mother sent me a story supposedly from Paul Harvey about the Black Panthers back in the 60’s. Apparently one of the people that demonstrated for them during the trial of a killing they committed was none other than Hillary Clinton. Yeah pretty far fetched. So I fired up Snopes which is the Internet myth buster of choice and it proved that this story is false . Sorry mom, I hope you still read my site after this…

Anyway the point of the matter is this: the email was created in hopes that you do not vote for Hillary Clinton when she runs for president. I can think of many reasons not to vote for her (no not sexist ones, cause I think I would vote for someone deserving like Oprah or Angelina Jolie) but real reasons like the fact that her husband was already president for 2 terms and based off of the actions he performed while in office, apparently he had no time to run a country and fool around with the office interns so clearly Hillary was already running the show. That means that she has already served her 2 terms as president and is clearly not legally afforded the opportunity to run again. I’m sure there are those of you that will argue that Bill didn’t start his extra hour activities until his second term, indicating that given the above, Hillary still has one term left. OK fair enough. But think back to when Bill Clinton was running for president of this fine country. Remember what Bill’s answer to economic slowness was? Something about creating all these jobs with chicken and turkey farms. Yeah, let’s create all these chicken plants to keep Colonol Sanders happy or something like that. Trust me I don’t remember the exact plan for recovery but it was something along those lines. This told, it indicates that Bill was completely off his rocker from day one and thus leaving Hillary in control from the day he took office so his time could be freed up for more important things like carousing with interns and cabinet members.

Now forward this on to six hundred people and you will cause world peace to break out indefinitely. Try it, it worked for me!
