    Don’t know if I really buy this, BUT, I will put it out. Let me get an overall opinion.

    Very good information!

      Hello, Oly. Nice to chat with you again.

      The three quotes in your OP statement have been circulated in bogus emails showing up since 2009 and early 2012. Scopes.com has declared all three are false.

      http://www.snopes.com/politics/guns/medicare.asp

      It is always a good idea to check unsolicited and unsigned emails on the scopes.com web site.

      I hope you are having a great day, Oly.

          People just like to find information that supports their existing opinions, in general.

          Happens on all sides.
