"Up in Smoke, That’s Where our Taxes Go"...

Can’t you picture it too?

Prime Minister Harper and Finance Minister Flaherty, smokin' away our Tax dollars like Cheech and Chong Smoked away that Monster Joint in Up in Smoke...

Did you hear this latest gem of a story?

Taxpayers funding 'ghost' commission


"Canadian taxpayers have shelled out more than $1 million for a federal appointments commission that has no commissioners and hasn’t overseen a single appointment in four years. In fact, it isn’t even supposed to exist... Turns out, like all good government operations, the appointments commission gave birth to bureaucracy far easier created than deleted...The latest government financial estimates show this bureaucratic hive of inactivity cost taxpayers $1,067,000 from 2006 to 2009. "

Tell me this isn't Every Taxpayers Exact Worst Nightmare!!

Spending over $1 Million on a Federal Commision that doesn't exist, except when it comes to paying for it??!!

And you haven't even heard the best part yet!

"...the Harper government now estimates it will need twice as many people and three-times the annual budget to do more of the same for another two years."

LOL.. (sad sad laughs of utter disgust and fatigue...)

Just when you think it can't get any worse, Voila!  It just did.

How can this be happening??.. 

I can't wait for his response for this one!  Or maybe he'll just 'prorogue' the press conference so he doesn't have to answer to this one either...

Man, the amount of taxes that I pay every year, and these SHAMELESS ASSHOLES (at every level of Government in Canada) just smoke it away like it's nothing...  Ah, Fuck it!!
