    The governor's food choice makes the news? I guess only if the writer can be derisive at the same time.

  4. Wake up America

    It is public knowledge that the top 25 hedge fund managers in U.S. last year enjoyed an average take home pay of $880.00 US million and their 15 per cent tax rate loophole. It is also well known that many of the largest and most profitable U.S. firms are sitting atop nearly $2 trillion in cash and refusing to invest in the economic life of American tax payer who threw them a lifeline. To add to the above obscene financial figures General Motors a recipient of $5.8 billion in U.S. and Canadian government bailouts has announced that it plans to increase vehicle production capacity by 45 per cent over the next four years, those jobs and new plants will beocated NOT IN DETROIT OR OSHAWA (CANADA) BUT IN BRAZIL RUSSIA INDIA and CHINA because their rationale is that both U.S. AND CANADA are "high-cost manufacturing countries".

    @blamenot working – I take it that you don't have a job either or you wouldn't be posting at 4:26pm. right?
    If anyone is blaming somebody who came in to help save the country and has found bumps along the way time and time again is that rinse prius and your teabagging friends.
    What's funny is that from what we have seen of some of your rethugs in the past that teabagging might just be something they really enjoy!
