Canadian Federal Elections: When Does Politix As Usual Cross The Line?

Thursday, October 15th, 2015 -( 61˚F / 16˚C w/Scattered Clouds in the Ithaca, NY area @ 3:00 pm Eastern Time // 54˚F / 12˚C & Clear near Fredericton, New Brunswick @ 4:00 pm Atlantic Time // 24˚F / -5˚C in North Pole, Alaska, where it is 11:00 am & ‘Partly Cloudy’ )-

Facebook ads paid for by the Conservative Party.

Scare Tactics – Half Truths –  and bold faced lies, & Facebook Thinks I’m in Canada. —djo—

Is this an example of Canadian Tax Dollars at work? I think we would at least hope the Conservative Party Of Canada is paying for this out of their own pockets.

& Maybe I should be happy to see that they’re wasting their money on an ‘American’ / US Citizen who’s in love with a Canadian and checking out her facebook page.

I didn’t get the ad I clicked on before, the divisive, Xenophobic ad that shows a side view of Stephen Harper, the current Prime Minister and says, “It is offensive that someone would hide their identity at the very moment they are… [committing to join the Canadian family.” -Prime Minister Stephen Harper, February 12, 2015 <— Everything after the ellipses was on the idiotic “I AGREE!” Page. ]

I clicked “Disagree” and twiddled my thumbs while facebook brought me to a page where it finished the statement and wanted me to fill out my name and address and email address and let the conservative party use me as an example of the many quadrillions of Canadians who hate the idea that anybody from an Arab culture might want to wear a Niqab while taking the Oath of Citizenship.  It also wanted me to click on “Donate Now” and help the evil, Xenophobic, manipulating, fascist, micromanaging, ICE-HOLE [Stephen Harper] get his butt re-elected.

The above quoted ad

— Jim Found the ad and emailed it to me- thank you, Jim. —djo—

This is coming one day after the media ran this article —> “Finance Minister Joe Oliver charged taxpayers to upgrade seat on flights” [ October 14, 9:27 PM ET ]

And this [ the following ] article went over the Prime Minister’s latest b.s. shenanigans [ Having Party shills exposing their children to cameras and other party shills while dropping piles of Canadian money a little bit at a time while a cash register ‘comically’ goes ‘Ka-Ching” with each drop – while the smug Prime Minister grins with a leer, preaching to his choir, firmly believing that ‘anybody with half a brain/ half a lick of sense’ is solidly behind him and firmly believes everything he believes they should believe – ]  with a magnifying glass and ran this slightly lengthy article online at http://www.cbc.ca/news/politics/   :

Spin Cycle: Is Justin Trudeau really going to empty your wallet?

Tories say Liberal promises would cost families and businesses thousands, but what’s the whole story?

I’m half tempted to copy and paste the entire article here, but I’m not sure what the copyright issues might be. I’m probably stretching things as it is –

The "I AGREE! " page

This is were the “Disagree” button brought me. —djo—

 

Also — I heard on NPR radio, WHYY’s “Fresh Air” with Terry Gross – that there is a book entitled “Canada After Harper” with a Forward by Ralph Nader :

Canada After Harper - Book For Sale.

I hope this comes through large enough so you can read it —

And I wondered why I didn’t hear anything about this book, which was published/released on August 15th, before this.

&&& If that isn’t enough, one idiot running for office under the banner of Stephen Harper’s Conservative Party announced in a real debate that Liberal Party Leader wants to put Brothels and places to shoot up with deadly drugs next door to all your vulnerable, loving, innocent children & apparently, Conservative propaganda has been published with that same idiotic & unfounded, un-verified claim in Chinese and maybe other languages most Canadians can’t read. So who knows what other flagrant lies these morons are trying to put out there and believe we’re all stupid enough to believe that if they say something, it must be true?

My favourite psychic/sensitive people still believe the Conservatives will lose big time in this election – A lot of veterans are mobilized in an “Anybody But Conservatives” campaign.

Meanwhile, some Media Watch people keep pointing out that Stephen Harper’s tactics lately show them that he’s desperately trying to hold on to his base. They point to him bringing out the loose cannon – drug addicted ex-mayor of Toronto and his brother, sitting them in front of a room only half full of ‘party faithful’ as a symptom of this desperation. 

I do not endorse anybody here, but I really hope the Canadian Voters are not so blind and stupid they re-elect these ice-holes.

But then I can still hear one of my favourite Canadian’s voice, “People around here would elect a dead goat if it ran under the Conservative Party of Canada’s banner-” ringing in my ears.
