    I call for all board members to abstain against CTB, stock symbol for the Cooper Tire and Rubber Company. CTB has qualified as a PAC, and contributes to liberal causes and candidates. Also, CTB has accepted federal grants as of late to study varying ridiculous theories about the production of rubber.

    The total bill to the American taxpayer is well over ten million dollars for the grants. The company has given in excess of $65,000 to liberal causes.

    I urge everyone to buy their tires at Goodyear.

    There is more than one way to tackle CTB.

    There is no "smiley" for shaking my head. Gotta admire American ingenuity.

    Touché :)

    One of the most innovative posts I have ever come across.

    I guess I need to find out what labels CTB uses for their tyres in Europe :)

    They are flooding the market with useless junk. Did you say they were a Chinese company S/N?

    S/N; I want to know why a rubber company is dealing in porn? Or is my source being dishonest? :tonofbricks: This is serious so no brush off! No wise cracks!:thumbs:

    I am not surprised. About what I expected.

    As for the tire corp., I must say they are aggressive in their marketing!:BangHead:

    S/N:

    You must, you must rise to the task! You must take up again the mantle you assumed in the OP which I repeat for your edification. It seems that the Cooper Tire and Rubber Company, better known as CTB, is like the Greek goddess, Medusa, irresistible but deadly!
