This makes sense, GE Capital is run by the biggest bunch of morons in the world, no wonder it's stock will soon be worthless. Stop selling services to one of the most profitable industries in the USA. No wonder they will be going down the toilet.

Adam Lanza's father is a VP and tax director at GE Financial. James Holmes' father is the lead scientist for FICO. Both were whistleblowers in the LIBOR scandal.

Where is this information coming from. I have heard that before but have never found any of those claims backed by credible sources. (I also haven't done much digging). If you have any sources I would love to check them out myself.

I heard this from a guy at work. It turned out to be a big hoax. I guess they can put things on the Internet that aren't true.

Jeffrey R. Immelt is the CEO of General Electric and is one of Obama's buddies. So this is not a surprise for me.
