No more Star Kist Tuna for me .....
"SNOPES" VALIDATES 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% 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...

She's the modern day Marie Antoinette. Her attitude towards working Americans is "let them eat cake" It shows with that lame stimulus of $400/yr. spaced out over the rest of the year amounting to a measley $13/wk. and less than $10/ wk. for next year(what a joke) while Wall St. execs, insurance companies big honchos and auto bigwheels got millions for being incompetent. At least with Bush I got $600 in one lump sum.
We all know what happened to Marie at the French Revolution.

Let me help to clarify this issue. Factcheck.org has a very good article on why the claims made by ONG about Pelosi are completely false! Checl out the link.
http://www.factcheck.org/askfactcheck/did_nan...
Here is an excerpt.
This is the latest version of a falsehood that's been circulating since January 2007, when Congress was debating a minimum wage increase. The central claims are all wrong.
No $17 Million in Stock
To start, it's simply not true that Pelosi's husband owns $17 million worth of Del Monte stock, giving her a "corrupt" motive to aid the company.(Nor does he own such an interest in Del Monte's primary shareholder, Heinz, as alleged in some versions of this message.)
And that is just the beginning.
I hope this helps

You most certainly cannot be that GD stupid. The elite in Congress and the US govt are very smart when it comes to whom and where they get their assets from, and who they rub shoulders with. Your defending Nancy Pelosi with factcheck? I guess it depends on who you trust, Snopes yes, factcheck.org as run by moveon.org definately No.

Just because you read it on the internet, doesn't make it true!!!
I could post a "news" article claiming that Pelosi personally slits the throats of all the tuna caught by Starkist and some one would cite it as a source!!! Grow up.. Factcheck is just another website...

I've been posting this all week and you verify the claim:

Psychologists have shown over and over again that humans naturally tend to accept any information that supports what they already believe, even if the information isn’t very reliable. And humans also naturally tend to reject information that conflicts with those beliefs, even if the information is solid.

**********BREAKING NEWS**********

This just in a Republican pedophiliac ring of republicans has recently been uncovered, after a five minute investigation and hundreds more are likely to be arrested. It would appear the Republican Party has quietly been trying to distance themselves from recent revelations which indicate pedophilia is a common thread that holds the party together.
Here is a brief list of those who have been already arrested. All are Republicans, It would a groups calling themselves ther campaign for liberty and Red states org are also involved in the conspiracy.

Republican news producer Aaron Bruns was arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.
Republican activist and former presidential campaign chairman Jeffrey Claude Bartleson was arrested on charges of sexually molesting a 5-year old boy.
Republican activist and former chairman of the Christian County Republicans Royce Fessendenpleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree child molestation and one count of second-degree statutory sodomy.
Republican parole board officer and former legislator George C.(Chris) Ortloff pleaded guilty to attempting to lure 11- and 12-year-old girls to have sex with him.
Republican legislative aide Robert R. Groezingerwas arrested for possessing child pornography.
Republican legislator Robert A. McKee pleaded guilty to possessing child pornography.
Republican aide Alan David Berlin was arrested on charges that he wanted to engage in sex acts with a 15-year-old boy while dressed in a panda costume.

This has more creditability than your Nancy Pelosi story.

There is no "Starkist stock," the brand is a subsidiary of Korea's Dongwon group. Del Monte gave no contributions to any Democrats, Mr. Pelosi owns no stock connected to StarKist in any way, StarKist's US headquarters are in Pittsburgh, PA, Starkist owns a fish cannery in Samoa employing 300 people out of a population of 65,000, Samoa received no exemption from minimum wage laws, there is no evidence that Pelosi had anything to do with extending an existing economic credit for Samoa that was advocated by the Bush administration. The only thing correct in your post is that "Pelosi's home district includes San Francisco"
