> > It's a joke . . . .org is not the government sit at at...lol. the sites actually funny. Very!
> FP: I realized that after a few minutes and tried ".gov" since I refuse to think our government could write such horrible things. Well, I was hoping. I was relieved to find out it was not the real thing! I had to rest and recooperated from the frightening thought of our government could write stuff like that, like dividing two groups. Republicans and Others (communists). I don't know if I can laugh about it, especially if there are others who sees that and thinks it is real and never figure out that it is a fake sight. Okay, you guys informed me that it is a joke site. Is that legal? Is it harmless? I don't find jokes to be funny if it is going to hurt people.
You asked "Is it harmless?" I looked through some of the site and there's only one page in Spanish and If some one Spanish made the same mistake you did they would go to that and get a letter in Spanish from the first lady that could sound really bad if they didn't know it was a parody site and how could they if they can't read the english part of the site. You can go to the www.whitehouse.org site click the "en Espanol" link and at the bottom click a link to see the letter in english. If you read if I think you'll see how bad that could seem if someone spanish made the same mistake you did.
