FW:This is just wrong!!

Here's a tableau I just dreamt up after reading this delightful forward sent in by Nancy.. You think you could type up a better scene? I want to see it.

[Somewhere in the shadowy conscious of the GOP/Corporate Machine]
( fingers drumming)..."Yikes, these holiday sales projections are well below last year's. Not good. What can we do?"
"How 'bout another forward? —but what to say.."
"Isn't it about time for another boycott?!"
" Yes! Hmmm. How about a boycott that reminds people that they should be vigilant patriots. Maybe play up the 'days-of-terror' angle once more, you know, something that reminds Americans to get out and really shop this December..."
"I've got it! Why not drag those God-less liberals at the post office into it?"
"Genius. Toss in a shameless fear of minority religions and.."
"Viola! Stamp boycott. "

--begin forwarded message--

I confirmed that the below information is TRUE!!!!!!!!!

How ironic is this??!!
They don't even believe in Christ and they're getting their own Christmas
stamp, but don't dream of posting the ten commandments on federal property?

USPS New Stamp
This one is impossible to believe. Scroll down for the text.

If there is only one thing you forward today.....let it be this!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of Pan Am Flight 103!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the World
Trade Center in 1993!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the Marine Barracks in Lebanon!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the military Barracks in Saudi Arabia!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the American Embassies in Africa!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM bombing of the USS COLE!

REMEMBER the MUSLIM attack on 9/11/2001!

REMEMBER all the AMERICAN lives that were lost in those vicious MUSLIM attacks!

Now the United States
Postal Service REMEMBERS and HONORS the EID MUSLIM holiday season with a commemorative first class
Holiday postage stamp. Bull!

REMEMBER to adamantly and vocally BOYCOTT this stamp

When purchasing your stamps at the post office. To use this stamp would be a
slap in the face to all those AMERICANS who died at the hands of those whom
this stamp honors.

REMEMBER to pass this along to every patriotic AMERICAN you know!!!

The stamp was issued in August of 2001. This email forward is as timely as most of them are. Or wait--maybe the post office was in on the 9/11 plot!!!!ZOMG

Amazing that a person would actually link to the Snopes page, which basically says this whole email is garbage, and then still forward the email.

Oh yes, I see why the Snopes.com reference is there, I had the same experience with a winger who forwarded me an email, allegedly from Ben Stein.

You see, they read up to the green "True" or the red "False", and there they stop.

In the case of the Ben Stein forward, the person was very confused when I sent him the link...

"But it's TRUE", he complained, until I told hem to read the whole page, where it explained that the second half of the email was not written by Stein at all.

I think Snopes needs a "Sorta" to go with the "True" and "False".
