And consider the following: The ultimate crony capitalist; do ya think WB might, just might
volunteer to write a dozen screeds advocating "tax me more" in exchange for the admin going light on him on the decade-plus tax dispute he has w/the IRS to the tune of (last I checked, $600 MM)?
He wouldn't do that, would he? I know I wouldn't write articles like that for anything less than full billion...but that's just me.

That Warren sure is a swell guy. I expect any day that we’ll see him give all his money to the government so he can put on his Mao suit and go out and weed the cabbages at the collective. What a humanitarian.

If anyone owned shares in Berkshire Hathaway why would they want to receive dividends? The preference is almost always to take your profits in capital gains at a time of their choosing.
Is the blogger suggesting that corporations be compelled to reduce their capital investment so that governments get a piece of it?

Buffet is heavily invested in insurance. Don't the super rich use this to protect their businesses from the death tax since life insurance payouts aren't taxed? Since the keystone pipeline was killed , the oil now must be shipped by one of the railroads Buffet has a controlling interest in. Warren also owes a fortune to the IRS for back taxes.
If I were a cynic and didn't believe in Warren's basic decency, I'd think these items MIGHT be influencing his decision to become a shill for this regime.

Warren Buffet is the one percent of the one percent. Now he is ona mission to protect his place on a perch among the very, very wealthiest.
