    rules: must be genuine flamebait from relatives or fwd'd/reposted fb posts where they believe it's steeped in truth/reality/other side's perception, not troll. please cite your source. original works also accepted (rants, etc.)
    i have a cousin by marriage who i only hear from once/month, and it's usually a 2 dozen email burst much like this. for the purposes of this thread, he will deliver.

    From a client of mine, a mild mannered ex-Marine Vietnam era helo pilot who saw two tours of heavy combat/ retired airline pilot.


    Federal Budget, Social Security -- See any gray hair in this photo ?

    See any older retired folks amongst the crowd ?

    Social Security Office In Milwaukee , WI .

    SS office pic.jpg

    A friend went to the social security office this week to file for Medicare... because it is the only way to keep medical insurance when you turn 65. He took a picture of the waiting room.

    Please tell me if you can find a retired person in the place ! ! ! !

    The place is now known as the "disability" insurance office ! ! ! !

    You no longer have to wonder why SS is broke ! ! !

    These people do not pay into the system, nor are most disabled ! ! !

    Please spread this picture to everyone you know.

    Our country is going broke on this fraud ! ! !

    Go down to your SS office and check it out.

    The deal is this...

    As soon as a person goes on unemployment insurance benefits... they are advised to apply for Social Security Disability status; that process takes awhile to get.

    When folks go on SS Disability after 99 weeks of unemployment checks... then Obama does not have to count them as Unemployed. During the Obama presidency... those on "SS-Disability" have risen from three million to eight million. Yes, really.

    Nobody cares who pays; "IT'S AN ENTITLEMENT."

    Remember in November 2012 ! ! ! !

    ^^^^That wouldn't also be the place where the *Medicaid* office is by any chance? I mean, if it's the same office for SS and Medicare, it'd make sense that Medicaid would be in the same place.

    (Wisconsin is #3 in the country for insured citizens, only behind MA and Hawaii)


    edit: By the amount of small children in that photo, it's almost certainly the same place, since Medicaid/Badgercare is primarily focused on families with small children.

    No idea. Just posting mass-email election garbage per $tinkle's OP.
    Based on the frequency of !!!!!!! alone in the email, I'm sure it's all frother crap.

    ^^^^Lol at the inclusion of the 6.5% (over 3.5 years) increase in M2 money supply. Pretty much cements my view of the frothers.......

    Look at the shiftless naggers sleeping, breathing up all the white man's air. Disgraceful, and it makes me ashamed to be an American.

    In other news, the last time I was at an INS office in California, there just weren't enough white people like me. As a matter of fact, I spoke better American that most of the affirmative action hires that work there. I blame Obama, even though it was 2002 or 2003.

    so i found this 'robin in berkeley' author, went to her archives, and what ad is in the margin?



    not sure which is most winning:
    - hank on a right wing site
    - hank pimping his goods to the unsuspecting masses w/o a whiff of hypocrisy
    - hank

    "My war, you're one of them you say that you're my friend, but you're one of them!"

    Could cut either way party-wise but true to form fits with our American paranoia. I'd say that the ad then works fine!

    The next time I have access to my parent's computer, I'm just going to set up a filter that immediately moves any email containing the word "fwd" directly into their deleted folder. I used to joke that I was going to use the channel-blocking to edit out Fox News, but that would be too obvious. Maybe they'll just think that their idiotic friends/relatives wised up and stopped sending them junk email?

    ^^^^^^^^^^

    Is the sender of that e-mail aware of what the tax rates, welfare system, and gun control laws are like in the Netherlands? Tell me again how it's not about race/xenophobia.

    Heh. I wonder if that email is going to keep going for years even if the "Burqa ban" fails?

    Example #5,283,795,982 of why I don't like Parliamentary "you get to vote for whoever you want!!" Systems. A radical minority party got 16% of the vote, and yet they got to dictate radical social policies like the ones specified....

    Four years ago my mom would send me this ****. Well, a little different. She didn't know she hated Muslims then, that's a new thing. Back then in was mostly Mexicans. Took all of 30 seconds on Google to debunk the ****, and send her a a factual reply that required rubbing two brain cells together to process. She hasn't emailed me since. It's wonderful.

    the only thing this means is she knows you're not falling for it, not that *she* isn't

    aren't relatives w/ unrestricted access to the internet wonderful?

    I still want to know why my parents will spend DAYS (weeks? months?) pissed off about something that could be debunked within seconds if they just bothered to look it up. I even gave them the exact method to refute it (copy/paste the headline into google followed by "hoax" and see what comes up).

    Now they don't send me anything anymore, and I'm not about to ask whether it's because they've realized that the forwards they get are bullsh!t, or that they don't want to be proven wrong.... It's amazing that to my parents (mother in particular), not being proven wrong is more important than finding out the truth about something.

    We don't talk politics anymore.

    back east, we just had a so-so MQ developer w/ only a secret clearance leave for six figures in DC. if you know your stuff reasonable well, $135k/yr is well within reach, $150 w/ full scope/lifestyle poly. better still if you go 1099 & cover your own benefits
