Sucks to be GE....

Entire Story Here

GE's is down...WAAAAAY down! I love that! I hate that they got bailout money and now they are still going down.

I know, I know, it was technically the GE Credit side that got the money - but I am boycotting ALL THINGS GE. And thats hard... We are currently looking for appliances and GE does make a good appliance - and right now they are DIRT cheap. But I have my principles ;)

We are looking into Solar panels and so making sure that the panels werent made by GE is important...

But the one thing that is REALLY, REALLY hard is NBC is owned by GE. I hate that the evil MSNBC probably got a new lease on life with the trickle down effect of GE's bailout, so not watching them isnt a problem. But I LOVE Law & Order. I know just about EVERY episode by heart. I can tell you in the first 2 seconds who did it, what the story is about, and which characters are in it and if they have been in any other episodes (they reused ALOT of actors in the early years).

And I love the Office.....And dont even get me started on My Name is Earl.....

But a Girl has her principles, right?

Actually, if this girl had principles, she would contact the advertisers on NBC and tell them why she doesnt watch NBC and its stations and tell them she wont buy their products either....which really sucks, because I LOVE Chili's....

Ugh. I quit watching L&O years ago, I couldn't take the politics and preaching. In fact, I don't think I watch any NBC shows at all.

I don't have a problem with GE tanking at all. After all, my city was built around GE factories. Transformer division mostly. Than the plastics industry. Which they sold to Sabic last year. Whats left now? Vacant buildings and a polluted river. Full of PCP's. They have cleaned some of it up tho.
Gee, Thanks GE.

Pearls, I have no problems with GE tanking. Due to past business experiences I totally despise GE Consumer Finance.

Interesting development: some major player has taken a "butterfly" spread position in which he will make a bundle if GE stock drops between 40% and 60% by Feb 20. Go GE!! ;)
