The Villar Mansion Email (3.10.09)

Weeks ago I received this email and it goes something like this:

"Imagine who would have such taste and live in such opulence?

An American Billionaire?
A Saudi Prince?
Louis XIV of France ?
Savour the pictures then scroll to the bottom of the page to see who owns this Work of Art. "

After a few photos (which I won't include here) has the following statement:

"This Mansion is in Salt Lake City , Utah , USA and belongs to:
Senator Manny Villar of the Philippines

While Filipinos starve, and die because of abject poverty ....and while Sen. Villar brags that he had poor beginnings and he had helped his poor countrymen over and over again... but look now.. he and his family live like this.......his GREED kills his poverty stricken fellow Filipinos .
PLEASE send this to everyone you know.
They can send it to everyone they know.
Soon Filipinos around the world will know what this man is doing to the people he wishes to serve if elected President. "


To set things straight, this email is a hoax, for those of you who still don't have any idea that it is. The original email goes in this format from this link:
http://www.hoax-slayer.com/robert-mugabe-mansion.shtml


What you can read from there is that this email has been used time and time again by people who just wanted to instigate anger amongst people, especially most of us who have slim chances of ever having such grand mansion.

I may not be PRO-Villar. But I still think that we have to be fair for everyone to be able to make choices. It will not make me vote for him knowing this, nor should you. It will also not be your reason why you shouldn't. It just means that we have to be much more intelligent in how we perceive things when presented to us. I don't really like to make this a post, I have actually given up on it but with how pissed my officemate was after receiving said email I thought people really tend to take chain mails that seriously without doing further research. Besides it's the internet! The only way to prove something is true is if it is constant all through out. If it's not the case then Ed must really be a rabbi. I on the other hand is a mutated penguin. And you reader has an IQ of 70. Got it?
