5. That link is NOT worth pulling up.. tries to plant spyware, etc...


What a POS website.. Definitely not worth the effort if you don't have a great spam zapper.

8. Dunno AZ... maybe it's just my new spamware?
I kept getting warnings that it the site was trying to plant spyware - then I got two different messages that said-

"Spybot S&D's IE helper has detected an URL that is known as a malicious resource"


O'well.. it took a few seconds longer to open it.. but I eventually got in.

I'll try pulling them up from their main page in a little while and see if I get in without all the hoopla.

14. Yes, I know the story behind it
And I heartily approve. Most times flag lapel pins are merely for faux patriotism.

The jawdrop was facetious.

10. I think the Obama campaign wants people to send it to them.
Edited on Thu Dec-06-07 08:43 PM by Pirate Smile
I don't know if they just want to reply all on the debunking or if they are also trying to determine the sources of the smear.

"When the campaign receives a copy of the chain email from a supporter who received it, they will attempt to send the letter to each previous recipient of the email whom they can track down.

The Obama campaign appears to be leaving no stone unturned when it comes to setting the record straight about their candidate's patriotism. Although email chains are notoriously difficult to break, the letter may go a long way towards mitigating its impacts."

13. hmmm, too bad the pic is out there, their 'response' seemed kinda lame
I understand their response and I'll send it back as a 'reply to all' but that picture will freak out a lot of the folks around here unfortunately

15. Nothing new, that picture has been around for a while.
I saw it in several conservative sites. The Freepers bring it up all the time as their so called proof of Obama's "lack of patriotism". :eyes:
