Of course he still could not beat the S&P 500, which is also in record territory as I write this. See here:
Nice to see crony capitalism doing well [rolls eyes]
That creaky SOB Buffett stole that money from the people!
He should have all of his assets confiscated by the government and then be locked up.
That is great. Good to see some companies doing well. Goodness the retail stores are not doing well. A little ray of sunshine is good.
“That creaky SOB Buffett stole that money from the people!”
In the beginning of his ventures, probably not so much.
But once he ammassed great wealth (power), with co-conspirators in high places helping him along, that’s exactly what it amounts to at this point.
Hey—All I’m doing is focusing a favorite talking point of the Left onto one of their own.
They don’t like it too much when the shoe is on the other foot.
Lot of money hauling oil one tanker car at a time......... pays to support Obama!
This might explain why
Secondariy we hope to develop Coal gasification cause its green. My nephew is a Chem Eng and works at a Coal Gasification in Beulah North Dakota for over 30 years! The processes were developed in NAZI Germany and were captured and brought to the US at the end of the war. I can understand why this process must be ceveloped by the Obamanotion that smart guys are Demon Craps! PS their IQ are 11
Sorry. I know what you meant. I was trying to tie my thoughts in for all those lurking trolls who would like to say Buffet is a great entrepreneur and we need more like him.
No we don’t! He’s a cheat who has learned to play monopoly with the corrupt system very well — and some have copied him to a degree.
He gets no admiration from me. I put him in the same category as union thugs, the EPA, algorebull warming, etc. All of them say what they have to in order to get what’s good for them.
Carlos Sim in Mexico also makes record profits from having the gov’t pick his company as the “winner” He buys off the politicians
Warren Buffett is doing the samething.
