this is rule number one in this section. we all understand that when you come across a tempting rumour spending a couple of minutes checking to see how accurate it is can be utterly exhausting. so relax, facts are pesky little things best treated as optional.

Oh...I know several here that could use that. You know when they twist the facts and sorta have them right but, not completely. Think it will work on that? LOL

Facts? According to whom? If you look hard enough, especially on line you can find what you want to hear! Consider the source, should always be a factor! The use of according to "My Sources" is always a good one, or the old "according to unnamed sources" is another! Boy, the Internet sure has helped our Red and Blue war of words, don't ya think? Me I'll stick with something impartial like "CNN" ! LOL! tdemex

lmao Rule number 2 - if somebody publishes something on the internet and you agree with it and it's basically saying what you want to hear, believe it, post it, push it...
