As you likely learned in Sunday School when you were 6, "bearing false witness" is a no-no.  If you disagree with Nancy Pelosi's politics, you'll get farther arguing your case when you don't rely on made up B.S. like the email below.  If you are in the right, you don't need to lie.  --Granny, 6/8/09

Windfall  Tax on Retirement Income

Adding  a tax to your retirement is simply another way  of saying to the American people, you're so darn  stupid that we're going to keep doing this until  we drain every cent from you. That's what the  Speaker of the House is saying. Read  below...............

Nancy  Pelosi wants a Windfall Tax on  Retirement Income.  In other words  tax what you have made by investing toward your  retirement. This woman is a nut case! You aren't  going to believe this.

Madam  speaker Nancy Pelosi wants to  put a Windfall Tax on all stock market profits  (including Retirement funds, IRA's, 401K and Mutual  Funds! Alas, it is true - all to help the  12 Million Illegal Immigrants and other  unemployed Minorities!

This  woman is frightening.
She  quotes...' We need to work toward the goal of  equalizing income, (didn't Karl Marx say something  like this?), in our country and at the same  time limiting the amount the rich can  invest.'  (I am not rich, are  you?)

When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she  replied:
'We  need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we  have an estimated 12 million illegal  immigrants in our country who need our  help along with millions of unemployed  minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes  could go a long way to guarantee these people  the standard of living they would like to have  as 'Americans'.'  
(Read  that quote again and again and let it sink in.)   'Lower your retirement, give it to  others who have not worked as you have for  it'.

Send it on  to your friends. I just did!! This lady is out of her mind and she is the speaker of the house!
