Government ads - cut the bullshit!

So,  I came across a CDIC ad while watching the hockey game last night and thought to myself:

Why the hell is the CDIC running ads (in primetime no less on HNIC)?  I actually found the prospect of the government actually running the ad (maybe not all Canadian banks are "safe"?)  scarier than the message of reassurance they supposedly are projecting.

Couple that with the endless "Economic Action Plan" propaganda bullshit ads, and I'm utterly appalled at the level of spin the government is hellbent on projecting without doing anything of actual substance.  But I guess that's the point of politics, convincing the masses "things are under control" while willfully doing nothing.
