Sh*t your parents forward to your inbox

Here's where we can aggregate all the crap our parents pass around without checking if it's true.

Today's highlight - the always-unnamed friend of a friend who doesn't want to talk politics but writes the world's longest uninformed and racist letter doing do...

[quote]Good Morning All,

[quote]I am still in shock over the election results . I personally feel it is a death blow for America, the America that we know, that our founding fathers knew.

[quote]I will start on a note of HOPE. Two of my grandchildren are of voting age. They did vote and did vote for Romney. They each contacted me yesterday to let me know. I am so proud of them. My son and daughter-in-law did a great job raising responsible Americans. They do NOT expect hand-outs from the government - they just want the opportunity to work , live and play in a safe financially secure world.

[quote]Let me keep this short and to the point. BO is NOT MY President. To me he is the lying, arrogant socialist communist Muslim living in the White House. I truly believe he was re-elected because there were too many ill-informed, uninformed or stupid people in this country. Any one who really knows what is happening in this country would never vote for your own destruction. This is BO's plan from the beginning and now he will finish the job. We will be VERY weak militarily, we will be run over by Muslims, the government will be taxing the hell out of you so that BO can support his "friends" failing businesses . Government will be involved in EVERY aspect of your life. I am TRULY fearful for America.

[quote]Case in Point: Obamacare - if you think this fiasco is about getting better medical care - you are sadly mistaken. It is anything BUT. We Seniors will be discriminated against because we will not be given certain treatments because our life expectancy is not as great. Employers will not be offering health care because it is too expensive. Doctors will not be practising because of all the cuts in payments. So there will be less doctors to care for many more people. By 2014, you will be taxed to death.

[quote]BO is a racist as is his wife. BO is the MOST devisive, derisive President EVER - he promotes Class Warfare, he promotes racism. He has acted as President of the Liberals and Democrats for the last 4 years, not as President of ALL Americans. As he whispered to the Russians "After my election, I will be MUCH more flexible" Watch out!!

[quote]BO has NOT met with any members of Congress, his administration in months. He misses most of his daily morning briefings. OR if he does go, he stays for a few minutes. He feels he is MUCH better than the average American.

[quote]His appointments to the Supreme Court will also undermine our Constitution. Look at what has been done in the last 4 years - Eric Holder SUES our own state of Ariizona because they dared to follow the Federal laws on Immigration. Unbelievable. And yet they will not go after Terrorists. Case in point - Ft. Hood. The victims' families are OUTRAGED over our government's lack of attention to this matter. WHY was this terrorist even allowed in our military. All along the line everyone knew he was espousing terrorists ideas BUT this country (and sadly military) was too worried about being politically correct to take action against him.

[quote]And now the scandalous Benghazi cover - up. Why Romney did not go after BO on this is unbelievable. The 4 people killed were allowed to die by our own government. This was a gun-running scheme gone bad. Ambassador Stevens was running guns through Turkey to Al Qaeda for use in the Syrian uprisings. It went bad. How could own govt. tell our own miliary who could have helped to Stand Down. Of course now, with BO's re-eelection nothing will be done about this cover-up. OMG! It is almost too much to stomach.

[quote]Our gas prices has more than doubled, Obama gives drilling permits to foreign countries to drill on American properties and YET, will not let Americans do it.

The irony is delicious.

I have relatives that swear Obama sets the gas prices.

Both my parents are dead.

I'd welcome either one of them sending me email, even if it were right-wing crap.

Of course, my father was a Democrat of the old populist school. He told me, when I was a child, that politics was like a triangle. The Republicans see the triangle as pointing upward, and believe in giving the greatest good to the tiny wealthy minority at the top, with the fallacious assumption that it will trickle down to the middle class majority; the Democrats see the triangle as pointing downward, and believe in giving the greatest good to the middle class, knowing that it will still trickle down to the tiny wealthy minority at the point.

My mother clung to life until she could see the 2008 election results. She was so incredibly happy that Barack Obama won -- she admired him tremendously. She said his election was proof our country had finally grown up. She died five days later.

I beg to differ.

My Dad too! His first vote was for Roosevelt in 1944 when he had just turned 21. Great guy, miss him a lot.

I can't believe people still forward shit like this around to people. In the 90s when email was more of a novelty and old people were learning to use computers it wasn't as insane.

To people who say "He's not MY president": why participate in democracy at all if you can't accept that sometimes your choice will not be everybody's choice?

I received this ....

Dear Family and Friends, Please do not write or call as I am in mourning. I have the symptoms of Severe Bama Flu! I cannot believe we have that many idiots in this country who would vote for O'Bama! How can they expect things to get better by sending the same people back to Washington.

I have not gotten dressed today except for my black sweat pant's and black sweat shirt. I'm sure it won't last more than three days, but until then I am in Limbo!!!!

May God Have Mercy On the USA

Simply send a curt note back that says:

"I will block your address from sending me anything ever again if you forward any more of this conservative-Republican-FoxNews twaddle.

No more of this stuff. Ever.

Not kidding!"

Dear Family and Friends, Please do not write or call as I am in mourning. I have the symptoms of Severe Bush Flu! I cannot believe we have that many idiots in this country who would vote for Bush! How can they expect things to get better by sending the same people back to Washington.

I have not gotten dressed today except for my black sweat pant's and black sweat shirt. I'm sure it won't last more than three days, but until then I am in Limbo!!!!

The sensibilities around black sweat pant's [sic] pretty much sums up the ignorant masses who believe that a Romney win would have improved their lives.

r9, there's no comparison of Obama's election to Bush's election. All the proof you need that Bush was one of the worst Presidents in our history and that mostly everything dems hated about him were true, is to notice that he has essentially disappeared off the face of the earth and even Romney tried his damnedest to distance himself from Bush.

I don't foresee Obama having the same legacy of Bush.

It's telling in OP's post that the misspellings and specious arguments are really just a big euphemism for I'm white, I'm Christian, I'm angry and I'm brainwashed."

I'm a fair minded person, and if any of there arguments about Obama were based in fact, I'd listen. They need to face facts - it's e-mails like this and arguments like this that killed Romney. Not Democrats, not Obama, not us voters. They lost the election because of their own loud mouths.

No parents left, neither used the internet

I finally told my partner's republican mother to stop forwarding me stuff, because most of it is garbage. Not so much political stuff (she knows better) but the stupid emails that say that you need to forward them to ten people, or the fake, made up, long sappy stories that have a happy ending.

by Anonymousreply 1311/08/2012

Simple reply:

[bold] I felt the same way when Bush got reelected. Deal [/bold]

My mother forwards Republican emails to me constantly. She subsists on Social Security and lives in a Section 8 senior complex and gets food stamps. I told her if her candidates won she would end up on an ice floe. She doesn't believe me.
