Don't trust Snopes
By Grant Swank

One would think an entire think-tank university staff is behind Snopes.

Not so. It's a couple husband and wife.

Their opinions are considered bible by countless who check out "the facts" by going to Snopes.com. These countless include college profs, Congresspersons, the National Review writers, and masses climbing all over the grassroots.

Stop it. You are being duped on many occasion by two political and theological liberals. That's right. Liberals.

Their names are David and Barbara Mikkelson of Los Angeles.

After all, does any person write on issues without some bias? And then put one-plus-one as husband and wife into the equation and you do not have a pure sheet of paper. Add to those two their ego proportions, given mortal's tendency to yield to the power hungry nature. Got it?

Eight million check in with the couple daily to see if what the public is reading wherever is reality or fancy. How odd of us so-called thinking populates to trust such an entity because it simply tells us to trust it.

The same with Wall Street. The same with the Episcopal Church. The same with B. Hussein.

Yet now we know these components are laden with crooks or liars or worse.

One issue that particularly riles conservatives who know what's up with Snopes is that Snopes states that B. Hussein's birth certificate is legal signed, sealed and delivered. Countless persons point to Snopes for the bottom line on that one topic alone.

Yet why should the Los Angeles twosome have the last word on that? They should not for there is much, much evidence pointing to B. Hussein hoodwinking us on that basic.

"Rumors pertaining to [Obama's] citizenship status have been circulating on the Internet," wrote Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz.., to a constituent, "and this information has been debunked by Snopes.com, which investigates the truth behind Internet rumors."

Oh, really. Not so, say the truly informed.

Joseph Farah without hesitation calls in question the Snopes couple. He regards them as "inexperienced and unprofessional 'researchers.'" And that they are.

Any conservative husband and wife team out there that wants to start washing public brains on all sorts of themes? Go to it.

Now as for Wikipedia. Well, that's another questionable site. Really? Really.
