I just dont get it

Banks are going belly up.
Retailers are closing.
People's savings and retirement accounts have tanked
People are losing their jobs and their homes.

And yet PG&E (for those of you not from around here, that is Pacific Gas & Electric) just posted 4th quarter profits that have DOUBLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yet supposedly all those people with foreclosed homes and all stopped paying their utility bills too.

But their profits went sky high!

And in the paper the next day after they announced this - was the article that PG&E is going to go solar with a lot of their properties - AND EXPECTS THE CONSUMERS TO PAY FOR IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boy, what a great racket.
Guess it makes sense.
Other companies have gotten bailouts that allowed them to pay their bonuses and trips and all.

Criminal mortgage companies are getting bailed out....stupid people are getting bailed out.
No one learning a lesson unless it is if you are stupid or criminal you get a pay out.

And the rest of us who are hunkering down and maintaining are the ones who are hurting in silence - we are not entitled to bailouts - becuase we are the ones who are paying for those bailouts.

So I guess it makes sense that a utility company would jump on the band wagon - making more money than ever - annoucing that - and then asking, no TELLING, their customers that they will be paying for the company to go green by utilizing solar energy for themselves.

I just dont get it.
