I got this in email from a friend who can always be trusted to forward this kind of crap, with an exhortation to FORWARD it to AS MANY PEOPLE as POSSIBLE!!!!!! (Message follows)

--------------------------------------------------
You really should be sitting down when you read this one.

Gold Star Mothers is an organization made up of women whose sons were killed in military combat during service in the United States armed forces.


Recently a delegation of New York State Gold Star Mothers made a trip to Washington, DC to discuss various concerns with their elected representatives. According to published reports, there was only one politician who refused to meet with these ladies.

Do you know anyone serving in the Senate who has never showed anything but contempt for our military? Do you happen to know the name of any politician in Washington who's husband once wrote of his loathing for the military?

Now you're getting warm! You got it! None other than the Queen herself, Hillary Clinton. She refused repeated requests to meet with the Gold Star Mothers

Now -- please don't tell me you're surprised.

This woman wants to be president of the United States --- and there is a huge percentage of voters who are eager to help her achieve that goal.

Sincerely, Cdr. Hamilton McWhorter USN (ret)

PS: Please forward this to as many people as you can. We don't want this woman to even think of running for President.

May you sleep in peace always...and please...hug or thank a Veteran for
that privilege.

Think about this one !!!

Don't forget, our girl, Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York Senator, now comes under this fancy Congressional Retirement and Staffing Plan.

It's common knowledge that, in order for her to establish NYS residency, they purchased a million+ dollar house in upscale Chappaqua, NY. Makes sense. Now, they are entitled to Secret Service protection for life.

Still makes sense. Here is where it becomes interesting. The mortgage payments hover at about $10,000 per month. BUT, an extra residency had to
be built within the acreage in order to house the Secret Service agents. The Clinton's now charge the Secret Service $10,000 monthly rent for the use of said Secret service residence and that rent is just about equal to their mortgage payment, meaning that we, the tax payers, are paying the Clinton's mortgage, their transportation, their safety and security, their 12 man staff, and it's all perfectly legal.

How many people can YOU send this to?

Oh please. The Gold Star Mothers dropped by unannounced and without an appointment on a day Hillary was out of the office. The whole thing is a lame attempt at discrediting her exacerbated by idiot right wing commentators and people who are too quick with the "forward" button

:-)

I believe the stuff about the Secret Service rent thing is untrue as well. But don't know offhand the explanation.

Remember- if you receive anything regarding the Clintons that seems sensationalistic or outrageous, it's probably untrue. At least, 9 times out of 10

ps- (edit) I'm not directing this at you! promise! I noted that you called it "crap" LOL but this thing just won't die!!! LOL

Because the Enron, John Walker Lindh, and Afghanistan stories are more news worthy?

What Psihala said and also because it isn't news and never was. Animals get run over all the time in this country, but because it was an ex-president's dog, it makes it news? IMO, that's what's called a very slow news day.

We go down to D.C. all the time for Congressional visits. We always plan well in advance with letters requesting appointments and follow-up phone calls. What the Gold Stars did is known as a "drop-by". When you do this, you're lucky to speak to an intern or receptionist.
Even with a lot of advance work it is very difficult to talk to a Senator from one of the big ten states. Hillary represents 18,000,000 people for crying out loud and we consider ourselves very lucky if she or Schumer (or D'Amato or Moynihan before them) can take time out to see us.
In addition, Congresspeople don't spend all their time in D.C., especially if they are from a nearby state like NY. As good pols, they are back at home stroking the voters as often as possible. An even when in DC they spend a lot of time in committee or on the floor of the House or Senate.

Buddy knew something about Clinton's Enron ties. I thought everyone knew that. So Slick Willie had him silenced.

Seriously - I agree with the above post: anytime you see something sensationalistic about the Clintons, especially in a "glurgey" thing like this one, red flags should go up like crazy.

Anyone ever heard the ones about Hillary being a lesbian? I used to see that one from time to time back when Clinton was Prez.

Dang! I knew it was something like that! And I predict the Weekly World News will be the only media outlet with the cojones to print the truth!

I had suspected that Buddy knew too much and that's why he was silenced. But then somebody pointed out an important fact:

Buddy was a Labrador...Labs have never been accused of "knowing too much." The opposite, in fact.

I got that one from a cyber pal of mine, with the admonition to 'forward it on ASAP'.

Within seconds of it hitting my box, I'd sent her the link to snopes' page on that one.

and, she then turned around and sent off another email to her list saying "well, I guess it's not true, but it sure sounds like her!"

there's not enough of these in the world for that :

Yes, so did I - and the one about how she was also a cannabalistic child-abusing Satanist (and I'm not making that up!)
