I get some crazy emails from my South Texas family.  These two take the cake.  

My concern is the conspiracy theories on display here.  The crazy Tea Party Minority seems to flip flop between believing they are the "true majority" and that they are the "anointed minority" who must do whatever is necessary to "restore the Republic".

The two emails below the squiggle of understanding

Here's the first one.  If you don't know Conroe, it's a community just north of Houston that was Republican back when Texas was a solidly democratic state.  The city folks who moved to Conroe and took over the burb often referred to it as "Coonroe" back in those days, referring to the racial profile of the native citizens.   Amazing how the right wing local paper was subverted to do the bidding of the Democrat (sic) party.

Hello Jayne and All,  Two friends and I went to this movie.  It was riveting.  A real History lesson.  The theater was packed.
You could have heard a pin drop after the Movie and No One left early.  The interesting thing to me was the newspaper in
Conroe Tx had other movies way ahead in attendance.  NOT SO.  There were as many people waiting for the next showing I cannot believe it did not get the best ratings???  I will certainly watch Sunday. 
I am planning to move to Austin next year to be close to our Son and family and my niece and family. 
It has been a difficult 3 year battle for Larry as you remember with Craig. 
My best to all of the "Chosen Few" of those of us remaining.

FOX NEWS IS GOING TO AIR
THE DOCUMENTARY OBAMA 2016.
HEADS UP FOR THIS SUNDAY NIGHT 9:00 PM
        TO ALL AMERICANS, DEMOCRAT, REPUBLICAN, INDEPENDENTS, RIGHT OR LEFT.

  SUNDAY NIGHT – VERY IMPORTANT.
This Coming Sunday --

Set Your DVR for the Fox News channel at 9:00 PM Eastern. Maybe this is why the White House has been discounting FOX. 
Sounds like this could be history in the making someone may go down - either Obama or Fox News.  It may be that Fox has been holding this information back due to the sensitivity of it and out of courtesy.  But, Obama has taken on Fox and it appears they are ready to spill the ugly beans of truth about the background of this individual who has had an extremely radical past. This Sunday, Fox News is going to air a very important documentary about Barack Obama, Sunday night at 9P.M. Eastern.

The report will go back to Obama's earlier days, showing even then his close ties to radical Marxist professors, friends, spiritual advisers, etc.  It will also reveal details about his ties to Rev. Wright for 20+ years, i.e., how he was participating with this man and not for the reasons he stated.

The report has uncovered more of Obama's radical past and we will see things that no one in the media is willing to put out there.  It will be a segment to remember.
Mark your calendar and pass this on to everyone you know: Sunday night, 8 PM CT; 9 PM ET. 
Democrat or Republican, this report will open your eyes to how YOUR country is being sold down the road to Totalitarian Socialism.  If you care about the direction of our country, pass this notice on to everyone you know.

I half believed it.  The Republican Party Broadcasting Corp (FOX) was going to broadcast a political movie during election season and rather than seeing something wrong with that, these folks get up in arms over the review given by a tiny paper.  They are concerned that "no one in the media is willing to put (it) out there, but they're circulating an email about FOX putting the digital detritus on the TeeVee.  Ai yi yi.

Then comes the next email...

ATTENTION:   Fox News will not be airing this documentary on their station. Someone erroneously
aired this notice. Rush Limbaugh said it was an opponent so that people would not go to the theater to see the film. Another way to hide the truth from the American public.

A mistake or a misdirection becomes "hiding the truth from the American public" although anyone on the thread who wants to can still go see the movie.  They might have to get out of the house and mix with others though...
Anyway...  just thought I'd share a couple emails that apparently criss crossed the state as they were fwd'ed to me by my family in Corpus.

What will these people say/do when they are trounced in November?  Let's find out!  Don't get complacent, GO VOTE!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
