Government Cutbacks

Elderly deported by Canadian government



To save the economy, in July 2010,

The Harper government will start deporting

all old people in order to lower

Social Security and Medicare costs.

I started crying when I thought of you.



Run, you Old Buzzard, Run!

Well... what can I say?
Someone sent it to me - and I’m not going alone!
