    If you're like GE's deputy GC & trash proxies still worth reading abt my critical dividend proposal at GE! OK'd by SEC. But GE challenging.

            My research shows GE blowing $ on buybacks, sometimes 2x mkt pps; corp-gov is ATROCIOUS!; dividend not real focus. See http://stks.co/1Tbn

                GE dividend +$.02/sh better than a penny! But insufficient! 2012 maybe big year for div w GE Cap, but shrhldrs must cont be patient. (cont)
