Friday's news that the PulteGroup Inc. - one of the nation's largest home builders - will move its Bloomfield Hills headquarters to Atlanta in 2014, prompted immediate public criticism from Quicken Loans' Dan Gilbert.

The WHORES of the business world don't like the absurd being pressed back with the absurd apparently.
One advertiser, Quicken Loans pulled its ads from the Rush Limbaugh show, wishing to lose the contact between its slutty business model and Rush Limbaugh listeners. In a tweet march 2nd, the Detroit based businessman, generally squishy Republican Pete Hoekstra supporter and Clevelend Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert called out Rush Limbaugh in a fit of weird moderate pride.
"Due to Rush Limbaugh's inflammatory comments along w/valuable feedback from our clients & staff,Quicken Loans has suspended ads on his show"
I guess Dan doesn't know that Rush was actually talking about HIM.
Its the whores of the business world like Dan Gilbert, who rely on taxpayer funds to screw his employees. Its sports team owners like this incredibly milquetoast Michigan Republican who rely on the public dole to make their dreams of team ownership come alive. Making his existing employees move and commute into a higher tax zone for the sake of a MEDC handout, and owning a team that probably has condemned family homes and private property taken in its development history. Just for money.
What a slut.
Here is some "valuable feedback" MR Gilbert. You have a lot of cash. And folks like you seem to think taxpayer provided money can buy anything.
Go buy a conscience.

We talk so often here about the things that are going wrong in Lansing and what the tax-and-spenders are up to that I think it's important to check in with the good guys from time to time to get their take on the issues facing taxpayers and the legislature today.
The GOP House minority continues to sponsor and introduce legislation, to work behind the scenes and to try to figure out some sort of positive solution to this tax-hike / budget mess.
We rarely hear about that in the MSM.
Being a member of a legislative minority makes it tough to garner headlines. But they're working hard and they're trying to make a difference.
This week I spoke with Livonia's freshman Republican Representative John Walsh.
