We Lost A Court Case? What Do You Mean? I Don’t See Any Court Case Here

Who could have possibly seen this coming? The Ford government is trying to use the new powers it buried in the budget bill to dismiss at least eight lawsuits against it, including ones that it’s losing or has already lost.

Yes Steve, The Words Cutting And Ford Do Still Appear In The Same Sentence For Other Reasons Now And Then

Ford is cutting 7,000 white-collar jobs No joke, when I saw this, I automatically assumed that the Ford in question was Doug. It isn’t. It’s the car maker.
