Cliff was reading his emails today and said, disgust in his voice, "Did you see this, about Obama giving free cell phones to everybody on welfare?"
"No," I answered, "but I wouldn't believe it until I checked it out, if I were you."
"But this says they already checked it on Snopes."
"All the more reason you should check it yourself."
"Yep, somebody puts that in there so you won't check it yourself."
Cliff really doesn't know how to check things on Snopes, so later on when I wasn't frying catfish, I looked it up myself.
Cell phones for people on welfare? True.
Implemented by the Obama administration? False.

Since Cliff and I lean toward the right politically, most of the political emails we receive are anti-left wing. I have a feeling if we and most of our email buddies leaned the other way, we'd be getting email lies about the Repubs, although why anybody would bother at this point I don't know; they've given themselves enough black eyes all by themselves and don't really need anybody's help.
Speaking of Republicans, I've turned my back on the Grand Old Party. Consider me a Libertarian from now on.
I posted a picture on Facebook of the two cows, Bonnie and Babe, together. They are girl friends now, and stay in close proximity to one another. Well, my old pal David latched onto the picture and had his usual fun with Photoshop.
