Lightbulb Email from a friend of mine that I want to share.

You need better friends....better sources.....and better confirmation skills:

snopes.com: Where Did Obama's Money Come From?

Please go to Snopes before posting. It really will help with all of the name calling going on behind your back. Your friend didn't write this.....they forwarded it. There is a reason they are called "chain" emails.....it's because if you keep forwarding it because you believe it you should be beaten with a chain

In reference to the house, Obama had a wife who is an attorney, FYI.

I'm sure she made at least 6 figures....I'm sorry, but this post reeks of ignorance, no offense.
