This is hilarious

The Sun Media editorialists decide to call up the toll-free number featured in the government's much-reviled Economic Action Plan advertisements. Result? "A polite receptionist referred us to the ministry of finance website Budget.gc.ca, explaining she didn't have a direct phone line for the EAP, nor was she aware of the Actionplan.gc.ca website, which we told her about." This is hardly surprising, considering a government poll found that basically nobody is paying attention to the ads except to hate them. So enough already, they say. This is "essentially an example of the government using public money to boast about its economic initiatives. If the Conservatives want to do that, they should do it with their own money." Amen.

So what should we do about our tax dollars funding the CBC aka the Liberal propaganda machine?

It seems to me that if something is not in constant and complete lockstep with what Harper has told me to believe, it must be subject to either Liberal or some other enemy influence. The CBC gives us unchallenged weekly lectures from Andrew Coyne on the joys of deregulation; provides us with timely periodic softball interviews of the Prime Minister by Mr. Mansbridge; and treats us to a daily dose of “I-hate-unions” from the “Chair of O’Leary Funds”. But, because at times it falls out of step, it’s still “the Liberal propaganda machine”. Maybe Tom Long can find us some people who will try harder to get and stay with the programme.

I'm surprised they even called the number then reported it. That's almost like journalism. (I watch SNN, it's free, to learn their ways. They are ill.)Professor Morton, anonymous con-fraud backer above, sounds like the one whose comment made it to my in-box regarding my "hippie tears somewhere else, yadda yadda" but you didn't publish it. Thank you. I believe in free speech, but not hate speech and/or bullying, which is most typical of most (all?) CONS...I could elaborate but I won't. It's Friday, so have a great weekend Sir!
