That was the subject line of a forwarded email to me today.
Part of the email is false, part true. Most lies do contain part of the truth.
Here is the email:
Wedding ring is in for repairs – Just passing this on with no comment. Interesting observation though!!!????!!!!
Wedding ring is in for repair
Since when does a plain wedding band need repairs, along with your watch, for a whole month?
Another piece falls into place. In a press conference last week Obama was not wearing his wedding ring nor was he wearing his watch.
When noticed, his staff said his ring was out for repairs. No reason was given for the missing watch.
So, it’s just a coincidence that Muslims are forbidden from wearing jewelry during the month of Ramadan. Can’t possibly be that, because although he hasn’t gone to a Christian church service since entering the White House, we know he’s a committed Christian “cause he said so during his campaign!” ………..And, I’ve got a bridge to nowhere to sell you also. This is the same president that spent the Christmas holidays in Hawaii to avoid religious obligations as PRESIDENT at the White House. His children do not receive Christmas presents. Let’s just face the facts and quit trying to distort the truth, we have a Muslim for president in the White House, and he has no knowledge of American history.
The person who sent this to me, is a College Grad, has both common sense and book smarts, is a Mom and works full time as well. The problem is not what is in the email, the problem is that She has to ask. Why does she have to ask? Simple our Media has failed, which leaves the average citizen who does not have much “spare time” having to look for the truth of what is going on in our nation. The media used to report facts and let the chips fall on whoever they fell on. Now not so much.
As to the answer to her question, is it true? A little of both. The reason for me responding that way is simple, I really don’t know enough about Islamic holiday’s so I have no idea if you can or can’t wear jewelry during the holiday month. To be honest I don’t care what his religious beliefs are, all I care about is how he helps or hurts our nation. Being a Muslim does not prevent you from being President of the USA.
I do know that President Obama has spread enough half truths and out right lies that I no longer believe anything that comes out of his mouth. Please don’t think I am picking on the President, I am ,but its not just Him. It our entire political process that has got me frustrated.
They all seem to be able to get away with lying and most seem to get away with just about everything else.
How in the world do some many of our elected officials come to Washington belonging to the middle class and if they leave end up as millionaires ?
