I received one of those “forward this to all people you know” emails.
Let it be known, I do not participate in these nonsensical games. If you are depending on me to forward it, I will not, Further more, I hate it that people forward these things with all addressee’s emails showing. Do they not know that this is the way spammers get email addresses.
None the less, this one peaked my interest.
Here was the leading paragraph. When I read it, it just didn’t ring true to me.
SOCIAL SECURITY CHANGES
It does not matter if you personally like or dislike Obama. You need to sign this petition and flood his e-mail box with e-mails that tell him that, even if the House passes this bill, he needs to veto it. It is already impossible to live on Social Security alone. If the government gives benefits to ‘illegal’ aliens who have never contributed, where does that leave those of us who have paid into Social Security all our working lives? ……
I decide to give it the Internet sanity test and Googled it.
As I suspected, it turned out to be false. However, with all the insane things I see Obama doing (his healthcare plan for example), it did make me look.
