I haven't been able to track down the original source of this rumor that has been spreading like wildfire in this area.

It sounds like something from the old 'SatireWire', but I swear to God the Dims are so out of control it's possible to believe anything these days.

At any rate, the rumor implies that our glorious Sec. of State, HRC (AKA, Her Royal C**tness), in her negotiations with the Chinese, promised them eminent domain rights to American land in exchange for their promise to continue buying our TBills.

Has anybody else heard this? Do you know where it started?

The person who sent me the info normally wears a tinfoil hat, but - as I say - these days you never know.

Like Hell.

They got it ALL wrong when they said there were no giant aligators in the New York City sewers!

I heard on Caost to Coast with George Noory that they are down there and they get ridden by Sewer Gnomes!

Take THAT Snopes! :cool:

OK, other than the giant alligators in the sewers and the Nigerian Generals who want to give away large sums of money for use of your bank account they are your friend.

Are you familiar with the team of investigators employed by Snopes to ferret out the truth? :rolleyes:

Snopes is not infallible, although it is more reliable than most.

Online rumor mill spins its own myth; Snopes.com is presented by some media outlets as an unbiased arbiter of rumors and hoaxes. But critics say its liberal bias causes it to create urban legends of its own

In the interview with INSIGHT, Mikkelson wonders how anyone could object to Hiliary's effort on behalf of the Panthers. "She was working with the ACLU, which is what any smart law student would do," she says. When INSIGHT points out to her that many believe some elements of the ACLU have a left-wing agenda, she replies, "There are some people who disagree with the Easter Bunny, too."

Nothing is infallible but the do get it right more often than not and I tend to trust their determination on the truth or falsehoods of urban legends until solid evidence arises to contradict them. Sorry Megi but a story on a blog isn't enough without some more supporting evidence.

From what I understand, Snopes.com is a comprised of a husband and wife team who reference other resources available on the web. 2 people who can Google better than most.
