Why should anyone care? Google can move their staff however the hell they want.
I thought the left wanted people to use mass-transit? Or was it more that they wanted people to use GOVERNMENT mass-transit.
Google should hire Blackwater. Problem solved.
Wow, that’s even more than HIGHLY compensated...
This just proves s Google is a government agency think of those unmarked planes going to Area 51 same thing but different
You may be crazy...but this time I think you are correct.
Google and America are controlled by "tall white aliens."
BTW, how tall was George W Bush?
Knee high to a gas pump?
