This has been discredited and debunked all over the place. As I said in a previous post, my aging & going senile mother gets a TON of snail mail with this same erroneous info in it.

These are snail mail from a variety of very dubious, so-called right wing "think tanks" who are totally into hitting up seniors for their cold, hard cash allegedly to stop the dastardly Daschle from taking away senior health care.

In checking out most of these organizations, it becomes clear very quickly that the majority of the money goes mainly into the pockets of the administrators (and not in the alleged "causes" that they support).

It is seriously disgusting and vile that these people "act" like they are ever so concerned about seniors who are allegedly being ripped off by Democrats, when, in fact, it is these right wing crooks who are - surprise, surprise (not) - doing the actual rip off.

These thieves would step on their grandmas if they thought it would enrich them. disgusting...

ZOMG!! Even my super fanatically right wing teabagging sibling has stated clearly to me that this is b.s. and lies...

Wonders never cease, but I guess sometimes the lies are just piled on too thick.

I think any email beginning with those nine words can be safely deleted. It's either this, or a picture of a kitten petting a duck with a poem under it.
