Kind of like no taxes paid Givverment motors?
General Motors Co. will drive away from its U.S.-government-financed restructuring with a final gift in its trunk: a tax break that could be worth as much as $45 billion.
From Icon to Bankruptcy
See the history of General Motors.
GM, which plans to begin promoting its relisting on the stock exchange to investors this week, wiped out billions of dollars in debt, laid off thousands of employees and jettisoned money-losing brands during its U.S.-funded reorganization last year.
Now it turns out, according to documents filed with federal regulators, the revamping left the car maker with another boost as it prepares to return to the stock market. It won't have to pay $45.4 billion in taxes on future profits.
The tax benefit stems from so-called tax-loss carry-forwards and other provisions, which allow companies to use losses in prior years and costs related to pensions and other expenses to shield profits from U.S. taxes for up to 20 years. In GM's case, the losses stem from years prior to when GM entered bankruptcy.

What does this have to do with Romney's direct experience in a company that he helped to destroy? He says he cares so much about jobs here and middle class, yet his experience goes against everything that he says is important to him.

Scientists? How about climatologists.
Did you read the list of these people.
So they found 31,000 right wingers who somewhere took a science course. There were only 9,000 PhD earners. Over the past 15 years.
Sometimes a patent clerk from Bern writes a paper that overturns hundreds of years of thinking in an instant. To you the science is settled because a certain percentage of reputable or as you say 'climatologists' scientists say the science is settled. Whatever one’s position on global warming, this is exactly the sort of terrible argumentation that gets a cheap applause line, but prevents thoughtful analysis.

Oil production in America is at a record high. It is not necessary for the oil industry to destroy Alaska simply to increase their obscene profit margin even more.$5 or $6 gas is still a bargain. Thanks to President Obama's strict new fuel mileage standards, today's vehicles can travel farther on $50 worth of gas than previous vehicles could travel on $200 worth. Some vehicles require no gas at all. Get rid of your gas guzzling SUV and purchase a modern vehicle.
"Let's look at the number one. Number one," Bachmann said. "That's the number of new drilling permits under the Obama administration since they came into office.

(Michele Bachman)

As in already existing permits?(because it's NOT a little snap of the fingers process to permit such-DUH)

And many of us have already switched to hybrid better gas mileage vehicles-and guess what---5$ for a gallon of gas is still-FIVE DOLLARS (and STILL rising) for a stinking gallon of gas!!!!!!!!!!

Why are gas prices STILL extreme?

I just love it when the Democrats use George Bush as a reference to defend their bullshit. I suppose everything the Democrats do is Bush's fault....
Have you read that right wing book that fred loves to quote? You know, the one that says Clinton was totally responsible for the housing bust whilst it leaves out any mention of the years 2001 to 2008?

Clinton, AND Bush were both responsible. Anyone who denies is just a partisan Topix hack who voted for Bush and who needs to find some justification for it by laying Bush mistakes back at the feet of the Dems.

So where's the money, freddy? DB? Fetchie? "General Motors" isn't actually a real General is it? He doesn't have the money... so who's got it? Somewhere or another there are some people who have 15 trillion dollars that apparently belongs to the American taxpayer and I, for one, want it back. And what's more, I know how to get it back.

Democrats are 100% responsible for the sub prime fueled housing balloon and the subsequent collapse of the financial sector by blackmailing bankers into issuing loans to minorities or face the charge of racism.
Franklin Raines, a democrat operative, committed massive fraud at Freddie and should be doing 150 years like Bernie Madoff. He ripped America off for trillions.
Remember Barney Frank? Anyone who dared to criticize was deemed a racist by good old Barney. What a jackass.

Once again, fried fred reveals him/herself to be a moronic liar of Romneyesque proportions:

no you don't. In case you didn't read your cut and paste of the article-your assumption - presumption - surmise - guess - conjecture (liberal propaganda) was that Romney will go to war with Iran. Try a little harder.

Mitt Romney
Is a Shape-shifting, cream-cheese LDS hustler with a spray-on tan. The Republican Presidential nominee. A fiscal Conservatives wet dream, which is to say malleable and not-too-bright, but can be counted on to look after the interests of the very rich and to never raise their taxes (see George W. Bush). Republican-leaning fox hag women will vote for Mitt based on his looks alone. Romney will never be our next president due to the sheer stupidity of the Tea bag haters chasing away votes of independents and typical republican voter witch will stay home. Will also hammer gay people to assure the Bible-beaters and red-faced Southern haters that he worries about what consenting adults do in bed just as much as they do.
"I'm Mitt, I'm shit"
"Mitt Romney has changed positions more times than a Stretch Armstrong doll"
"If elected, Mitt Romney promises to give everyone in America their own planet to live on after they die!"

Actions have consequences, which is something Michael Brutsch is just starting to learn.

Brutsch, aka "Violentacrez," was Reddit's biggest troll until Gawker exposed his true identify, revealing to the world the man behind questionable forums, such as r/creepshots -- a space dedicated to pictures of women unaware that their photographs had been taken.

Now that the 49-year-old from Arlington, Texas, has been outed, his behavior has caught up with him.

According to The Daily Dot, Brutsch was fired from his position at a financial services company less than 24 hours after Gawker editor Adrian Chen's exposé went live.
Before the article was published, Chen wrote that Brutsch pleaded with him not to reveal his identity, correctly fearing he would lose his job and his ability to provide for his family.

"My wife is disabled. I got a home and a mortgage, and if this hits the fan, I believe this will affect negatively on my employment," he told Gawker. "I do my job, go home watch TV, and go on the internet. I just like riling people up in my spare time."

In a phone conversation, Brutsch admitted to being the Reddit user named Violentacrez, who created or moderated sections dedicated to pornographic and violent images, including subreddits called r/rapebait, r/incest, r/picsofdeadkids, r/jailbait, and r/chokeabitch.

And sleeping all day, with just a little more industriousness us cats could make something of ourselves like the dogs have. I blame the President! Send him back to the pound, dammit! Now where's that strange woman who lets me lick her panties...?"
