So I was at work wed when a Friend of mine ,a very low info voter,came up to me and was telling me his new worry,that he had heard about from Glen Beck.Tim,my friend,goes on to explain that for weeks he and his wife have been stock piling food because the UN in concert with Obama was going to turn off the power grid and impose martial law and to look on my mailbox to see if I have a round sticker on it because depending on the color I may go to a indoctrination camp ,be killed outright ,or be left alone as a "desirable .http://www.snopes.com/....

Well I politely listened and was entertained but imagine my surprise when I woke up today to find that indeed the power was off.....I was like OMFG the crazy person was right!!.Turns out it was a car accident lol.This whole incident got me thinking about how little people really read and research these things on the right wing and how much they want to believe them. My first question to him this AM when I saw him and told him what happened was why are you at work? It seems to me that if you believe the story coming to work would be the last thing you would do but he said that he didn't want to get fired???excuse me but you believe the world is ending this day and you come to work??That's quite the disconnect lol.We talked for a while than went in to the factory .He asked me if I had checked my mailbox for a sticker and I said didn't have a mail box.He says but you have to its federal law!! I said I got a post office  box and nope...no sticker lol.I went on to explain I wasn't worried about it because I was an Obama voter and worked with the local organizing for America folks to help get him re-elected and i'm sure he will spare me lol!! Tim than says, "boy wished I had voted for him too". I was speechless ...I just said you'll get your chance in 2016 lololol .He assured me he would vote for him than..............................................just wow .Here are the links to the real story it took all of 5 mins to find out what the truth was with a little help from the google. http://thecommonsenseshow.com/...   http://www.nerc.com/....

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.
