Hypocrisy At It's Best (or Worst)

This was passed on to numerous people by a friend iof mine in response to a post in this space suggesting politicians be required to wear uniforms similar to NASCAR, so all the voters know who is financing them. I thought it was worth sharing...

Why does this not surprise me?

A friend who publishes the local business journal suggests that politicians be required to wear sponsors' badges, like NASCAR drivers.

I would take it one step further and require that when a politician appears on TV pitching a cause, that an accompanying subtitle be inserted on the screen telling us how much money they received from that interest; when they push a teachers' bill, up comes the PAC and other money they accepted.

I suspect this would bring end to what I believe is the nearly total buying out of politicians.

We need to see how much money they accepted, what their vested, and other, interests are.

It's sickening and I have no reason to doubt what is stated below.

No more Star Kist Tuna for me .....

Snopes validated the facts below

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco. Star-Kist Tuna's headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi's home district.

Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi. Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75 percent of the Samoan work force. Paul Pelosi, Nancy 's husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock. In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than that of its competitors.

Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an "economic development credit in American Samoa" Pelosi has called the Bush Administration "CORRUPT" and many other things !!!

How do you spell "HYPOCRISY?" She's shameless!!!
