Fake Statue of Liberty stamp

So the post office decided to use the Vegas version of the Statue of Liberty for their new stamp. I guess that since they're playing craps with our tax dollars, it seemed appropriate. I choose not to purchase the fraud.

It's a real stamp - just the picture used for it is of the replica at New York, New York in Vegas.

In this day of PhotoShop, Does it really matter?

Pretty much everything the government does these days is either a fake or a fraud.

A picture used to be worth a thousand words.
If you can't trust words and you can't trust pictures, what do you trust?

44 cents gets you that stamp and it will get your letter delivered.

Hi, makes no difference to me, but at least it wasn't made in China. I just happen to have a better one though.
