    I am tired of seeing all these companies trying to take advantage of economic hard times. I am calling for a ban of all companies that do!

    I hope Apple doesn't :(

    None of my financial institutions have needed help, there are plenty of them who don't. I have been watching Utah beat bama in the Sugar Bowl and I have seen several commercial trying to take advantage of the economic crisis.

    I know what a recession is. I know "not spending" makes it worse. However, we as consumers, can choose who we give our money to.

    I agree with your ethics but if everyone was to pull their money out of the banks it would only make it worse.

    Its the seedier side of capitalism. If millions were dying from Flu Epidemics, you can better believe that companies would be leveraging that to sell you something to keep you flu free.
