He got confused, he thought he was joining the “buffet” line.

He thought he was heading to Chris Christie’s house to get a ham sandwich.

holy cow. If I had that money, I think I would make a small investment in a personal chef, personal trainer, and image consultant so I wouldn’t look like a sloppy oaf.

Those OWS kiddies think THEY have something to complain about?

a) how would you like to be ‘mature’ and gray, and known only as “Buffet’s son,” and

b) dad made it publicly that he was leaving his family relatively little $ (enough to be comfortable on) but the rest of his fortune is going to the foundation managed by Bill and Melinda Gates.

Gluttony on display. Looks like he ate the billion daddy was supposed to send to Uncle Sam.

In the deep dark recesses of their bed-bug riddled minds, this is how they think life should be.

EVERONE should be the son of a gabillionaire and live off the fat of the......well, the fat of the land as well as the fat of whatever trods upon the land.

I would guess as a Director of BH he is no dummy when it comes to investment, but politically he has not fallen far from the family tree.

You know the thing that's so laughable about the Buffets is how they talk the talk, but do not walk the walk.

It's all hot air! The Buffets have all the power to turn their fortunes over to the government or directly hand them out to poor people, upper middle class raised students with massive student loan debt, rich kids with useless degrees and no job prospects, or whatever. BUT—THEY DO NOT.

Talk, talk, talk. Like a parrot. All sound and no fury. And the Left, democrats, and big media eat it up.

Reminds me of a Jesus parable:

Mark 10

17 Now as He was going out on the road, one came running, knelt before Him, and asked Him, “Good Teacher, what shall I do that I may inherit eternal life?” 18 So Jesus said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good but One, that is, God. 19 You know the commandments: ‘Do not commit adultery,’ ‘Do not murder,’ ‘Do not steal,’ ‘Do not bear false witness,’ ‘Do not defraud,’ ‘Honor your father and your mother.’”[a] 20 And he answered and said to Him, “Teacher, all these things I have kept from my youth.” 21 Then Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “One thing you lack: Go your way, sell whatever you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, take up the cross, and follow Me.” 22 But he was sad at this word, and went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions.

The only thing is the Buffets aren't sad, as no one has the courage to tell them to give it all to the poor if they're so concerned.

Exactly . .They want to enjoy the wealth and ego but are too selfish and cheap to do it during lifetime. Why not share their money and manaagement? Do it pro bono for schools and nonprofits?

But no, these greedy bastards want the fame and fortune while their living, breathing hypocrites.

Share the wealth, you hypocrites. I dare you.
