    It's not just coincidental that as soon as the fed and the unions took over the two car companies that we heard (unsubstantiated and later proved incorrect) reports of Toyotas going nuts - and now just after a facebook twerp announced he was renouncing his citizenship and moving out of the country GM announces they will stop advertizing on facebook. I never before heard of a major company announcing that they would stop buying advertizing in any media venue. It had the (probably) desired effect of throwing cold water on the IPO. THUGS

    It's not a "company" or "corporation" anymore..... UAW owns GM... Of course with the help of our Jr. Castro....

    Fuck GM..... It will only hurt them in the long run. Only stupid fucks would withdraw advertising from such a popular site.

    Fucking collectivists......

    "Take Interior Secretary Ken Salazar's remark that he would keep his "boot on the neck" of BP, which brings to mind George Orwell's definition of totalitarianism as "a boot stamping on a human face — forever." Except that Salazar's boot hasn't gotten much in the way of results yet.

    Or consider Obama's undoubtedly carefully considered statement to Matt Lauer that he was consulting with experts "so I know whose ass to kick." Attacking others is a standard campaign tactic when you're in political trouble, and certainly BP, which appears to have taken unwise shortcuts in the Gulf, is an attractive target.


    Then there is Obama's decision to impose a six-month moratorium on deep-water oil drilling in the Gulf. This penalizes companies with better safety records than BP's and will result in many advanced drilling rigs being sent to offshore oil fields abroad.

    The justification offered was an Interior Department report supposedly "peer reviewed" by "experts identified by the National Academy of Engineering."

    But it turned out the drafts the experts saw didn't include any recommendation for a moratorium. Eight of the cited experts have said they oppose the moratorium as more economically devastating than the oil spill and "counterproductive" to safety."

    They withdrew their ads because they were half as effective as GoogleAdSense ads.
