Fraud Alert: The Harper Cons are Caught Cheating Again
Well as I'm sure you know, the Harper regime contains more Con artists than you can count.
One moment they're lying like thieves, the next moment they're twisting the truth.
One moment Lord Harp is a Great Strong Leader, the next moment he's cowering in a closet.
But holy chicken this is embarrassing.
The Canadian government is being criticized for digitally pasting its "Canada" logo onto a photo of the Canadarm2 robotic arm that appears on federal government websites.
The Canadian Space Agency says the use of the photo was a mistake that the government is taking steps to correct.
And this is HUMILIATING.
CANADIANS are known for humility. But leave the Earth’s surface and you'll find the country’s ego somewhere up in the thermosphere. Canada’s government websites use doctored photographs of its contribution to the International Space Station to call special attention to itself.
Of course, countries have long fiddled with photographs to present an image of grandeur. But the tactic of fairly ham-fisted airbrushing used here seems more reminiscent of North Korean propaganda posters than of Western democracies' typical PR efforts.
Because now they're LAUGHING at us all over the world...
And I blame Boss Harper for teaching his cult followers that lying isn't bad, unless you get caught.
And wouldn't you know it eh? That fake picture was all over their Porky Action Plan site.
While the photo appears on federal government websites, including a page on its Economic Action Plan, and Citizen and Immigration Canada's "Discover Canada" page, the Economist notes that its availability on the internet has caused it to appear on sites as far away from Austria, South Korea and India.
The Con artist site if ever there was one...
Where they run ads claiming that they have a great Job Grant program, and then have to pull them because the claim was FRAUDULENT...
There was no Job Grant program. There were no jobs.
Oh boy. Once upon a time I was proud to be a Canadian. Back in the days when we were known as the decent Boy/Girl Scouts of the world.
But not anymore.
And all I can say is we won't be honest and decent again.
Until this grubby Con artist is defeated.
And sent to the place he belongs....
