I am a jackass

I am a jackass i fell for a hoax on the internet.. here is the hoax

On NPR's Morning Edition, Nina Tottenberg said that if
the Supreme
Court supports Congress, it is in effect the end of
the National Public
Radio (NPR), National Endowment for the Arts (NEA)
and the Public
Broadcasting System (PBS).

PBS, NPR and the arts are facing major cutbacks in
funding. In spite
of the efforts of each station to reduce spending
costs and streamline
services, some government officials believe that the
funding currently
going to these programs is too large a portion of
funding for
something which is seen as not worthwhile.

The only way that our representatives can be aware of
the base of
support for PBS and funding for these types of
programs is by making
voices heard. Please add your name to this list and
forward it to
friends who
believe in what this stands for.

This list will be forwarded to the President and the
Vice President of
the United States. This petition is being passed
around the Internet.
Please add your name to it so that funding can be
maintained for NPR,
the NEA.

HOW TO SIGN FORWARD: IT'S EASY: Please keep this
petition rolling. Do
not reply to me. Please sign and forward to others to
sign. If you
not to sign, please send to the e-mail address
indicated below.

DON'T WORRY ABOUT DUPLICATES. This is being forwarded
to several
people at once to add their names to the petition. It
doesn't matter if
people receive the same list as the names are being
managed. This is
anyone who thinks NPR, PBS and the NEA is a worthwhile
expenditure of
$1.12/year of their taxes.

If you happen to be the 150th, 200th, 250th, etc.,
signer of this
petition, please forward a copy

This way we can keep track of the lists and organize
them. Forward
this to everyone you know, and help us to keep these
programs alive.

NOTE: It is preferable that you SELECT (highlight) the
entirety of
this letter and then COPY it into a new outgoing
message, rather than
simply forwarding it. In your new outgoing message,
add your name to
bottom of the list, then send it on.
