Publicity Stunt?
written by Garrett, June 08, 2010
I think this is more of buyimg viagra in australia a publicity stunt that an actual revelation on GM's part. GM for years has been looking into alternative fuels and the like... now they are just outsourcing their R&D department to the everyman with a good idea. Maybe this is a good sign, maybe it's just to cialis no rx required become favorably viewed in the public eye.

Either way, looks good to me, and being from Detroit and positive autonews makes me happy.

I think that the big companies which are not "venturing" out for new ideas will lose in the long run. The brain that can really make the technology moving on cannot be persuaded to do 8-hour-a-day office stunts, so, investing in that brain is probably the only way.
First blush sounds great dunnit??

So generous of them to use some of the profits they've made via wars in the mid-east to actually do some good, huh? What happens more often is, the people they "help"' end up at their mercy when it comes to patents. When companies "sponsor" science, then the profit machine decides when some new product is worth actually pushing on the cialis cost canada ignorant masses, or if it is counter to their own "vision" of how to make a buck. These patents end up lining a bird cage somewhere, and we get the same old war and pollution making profit machine. Sorry if I sound like a cynic. I much prefer the term "realist".
This is the reputation that these companies have. They deserve to be boycotted into oblivion, rather than bestow more investment money and faith in their agenda for "good".
What ever happened to a national agenda including state sponsored science and research and incentives toward innovation that is designed for the good of the people and the good of the whole and the good of the planet... instead, we put our faith and how to buy viagra investments in private enterprises seeking only to benefit shareholders. Then we wonder why all the innovations that could provide a sustainable future for our children are stifled, hidden, suppressed... patents for new energy innovations end up lining a CEO's birdcage while it seems we will eventually drown in our own waste, like crowded rats...
