GM is building all their high mileage future cars based on the Volt. It will work out.

It is one of the better ideas out there. Take a generator with you to extend your range.

Worst companies are doing great!!!

Liberals hate junk food but then ask for more money for their workers!!!

Let's see how they bankrupt the cigarette industry for the sake of health and then have their employees asking for more pay and benefits!!!

Facts and reality check:

Fact #1. Hostess bankrupt.
Fact #2. Employees unemployed.
Fact #3. It matters not what the executive did with THEIR money they risked and invested fact #2 still remains employees unemployed while fact #1 still hold true.
Summary: it matter not what I do with MY MONEY, if my lazy employees are not grateful for the unskilled job I provide them with so they can pay their food and bills then I close my store, fire the lazy liberal rats and take my hard earned and highly risked money somewhere else.
If you want a job CREATE YOUR OWN COMPANY!!!
That is the conservative way!!!

FACT: As usual you are wrong.

FACT: It did matter what the executives did with corporate (not their) money.

FACT: They pulled the same sh*t that the airline did with pilots. They got conscesseions from the employee's and then awarded themselves a bonus.

FACT: They wanted to do it again EVEN AFTER SHORTING THE RETIREMENT FUND.

FACT: The employee's basically said "Fool us once, shame on you. Fool us twice, shame on us."

The employee's point was that even after the first time, the executives kept bankrupting the company. This is one of the primary reasons they should change the system to an "Employee first in line" when it comes to settling the debts.

This class envy nonsense keeps growing. These libs are like the lazy domestic servants who are paid a wage to clean the house and then bitch about how much the owners spend on their cars, investments and children's education. Then one year, they don't get their Christmas bonus because the economy has affected them. The domestic is mad and complains how greedy and selfish her boss is. She begins to show up late and sometimes not at all because she doesn't think it's fair that she didn't get her bonus. Eventually she gets fired because she wasn't doing her job and she figures out a way to sue her boss. Discrimination has always been effective. The the scenario goes on for these parasitic libs.

Just goes to show how stupid you are. Taxpayers spent about 1.6 billion dollars for phones for the poor. Last year 12.5 million cell phones were handed out and there were scammers that had more than one wireless provider.

You did not know because you watch liberal media: a lazy liberal like you, from the government ghetto was paid about $20.00 to interrupt a Romney campaign, conservatives never go that low because we have decency. She was ask why she will vote for Obama and she did not mention any economic policy, foreign policy, experience, or any other skill or character. She did not mentioned Benghazy nor Fast and Furious, she said she loved Obama because he gave her a free cell phone. That was the ONLY reason she voted for him!!!

Like you, she is after hand-outs from the government because she is a looser, like you, that can not survive and provide for herself!!!

Yes, by the monkey woman, Muchael Obama!!! Who will run for president giving Obama a third anti-constitutionally term!!!

Of course, the Republican inspectors will be again illegally removed from the Philadelphia voting center, giving George Soros' hackers enough time to compromise the voting network again.

Correct!!!

We conservatives when we do not like a job we get a better one, and if we do not find a better one we CREATE one!!!

I make six figures and I came from a non speaking English country. My car was a bycicle I assembled from junk parts!!! Today I am a software engineer after my tour in NATO and the US Navy.

Conservatives know the sky is the limit, liberals blame their bosses for their incompetence.

I do not get even, I get better!!!

Good for you! Success is predicated on how much you want to work.

The progs think individual success is unfair. See, you couldn't become successful if you didn't have roads to drive on and cops to protect your money - you know, from being stolen by Obama supporters. Therefore, any success you enjoy must be shared with the cops and road builders, otherwise known as the collective.
