Yes, and I agree with this.  So when people send me anything that says "Snopes says this is false", I think so what.  I don't believe them either.  M.
 
 
Thanks Ed:    Now here is a shocker.  Who da thunkit.  "The Chosen" actually put out incorrect information.  That way they keep us confused.  LOL.....   I never trusted this bunch.  And the real clincher was when they pooo pooed aspartame poisoning.  According to them you can just sprinkle it on your cereal.   It is good for you.   Right?  "They" want us dead.   T. 
 
 

Snopes.com is a Scam  

For the past few years www.snopes.com has positioned itself, or  others have  labeled it, as the 'tell all final word' on any comment, claim and email.   But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind  snopes.com.  Only recently  did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda  makes you wonder what they were hiding.  Well, finally we know. It  is run  by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators  and researchers, no team of lawyers.  It's just a mom-and-pop  operation  that  began as a hobby.

 

David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started  the Website about 13 years ago - and they have no formal background  or  experience in investigative research.  After a few years it gained  popularity believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the  past couple  of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did  they have  a selfish motivation?  The reason for the questions - or skepticims  - is a  result of snopes.com claiming to have

the bottom line facts to  certain  questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong.  Also,  there  were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not  really investigating and getting to  the 'true' bottom of various issues.  I can personally vouch for  that  complaint.  

 

A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted a  political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across  the  internet, 'supposedly' the Mikkelson's claim to have researched  this issue  before posting their findings on snopes.com.  In their statement  they  claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into  taking down  the sign, when in fact nothing of the sort 'ever' took place.

 

I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking  he would want to get to the bottom  of this and I gave him Bud Gregg's  contact  phone numbers - and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the  big  exec's at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to  speak with  him about it.  He never called Bud.  In fact, I learned from  Bud Gregg no  one from snopes.com ever contacted anyone with State Farm.  Yet, snopes.com  issued a statement as the 'final factual word' on the issue as if  they did  all their homework and got to the bottom of things - not!

 

Then it has been learned the Mikkelson's are jewish - very  Democratic (party) and extremely liberal.  As we all now know from this presidential  election, liberals have a purpose agenda to discredit anything that  appears  to be conservative.  There has been much criticism lately over the  internet  with people pointing out the Mikkelson's liberalism revealing itself  in  their website findings.. Gee, what a shock?

 

So, I say this now to everyone who goes to www..snopes.com to get  what they  think to be the bottom line facts...'proceed with caution.'  Take what it  says at face value and nothing    more.  Use it only to lead you to  their  references where you can link to and read the sources for yourself.  Plus,  you can always google a subject and do the research yourself.  It  now seems  apparent that's all the Mikkelson's do. After all, I can personally  vouch  from my own experience for their 'not'

fully looking into things.
