Progressive Pulse and Red Clay Citizen don’t agree on much, but we definitely agree on this:
Goodyear might not be a pioneer in showing other US tire makers how to make a profit without handouts but it sure is showing other corporations how to get their fair share of public greenbacks. The slope is now officially slippery and other giant corporations will be sliding down in short order no doubt.
Bravo to Elaine Mejia for this post and kudos to the Pulse for their stand on this issue. We may battle it out on our little corner of the blogosphere, but whenever we can find areas of agreement, we’d do better to turn, momentarily, from our bickering to cooperating on issues where there is overlap.
Thus, a transpartisan message to our leaders: Stop giving away our money to corporations. It’s wrong no matter how you try to justify it.
