I didn't see his appearance on CNBC, so I can't comment on it. But I will say this, of all the business leaders out there today, he is the only one I have some respect for.

Mr. President,I need a small favor. Can you keep that Keystone Pipeline on hold for a while ,,My 

Rail company is making a killing on that Canadian oil.

I will make  a hefty donation to the D N C  if you can make that happen for me.

As owner of the Burlington-Northern Southern Pacific Railroad, good old Warren hauls most of the oil from our northwest and the Canadian oil sands production. Having  a kissing cousin in the white house who will not approve the Keystone pipeline and all the jobs it will provide is a shame. Just the 1% taking care of the 1%. One wonders how the POTUS has acquired so much wealth.

 Besides Buffett's huge assets, access to legislative intelligence (insider info) affecting stock value and ability to invest in preferred stocks, you can understand his success. He can afford to gamble with the odds on his side more than not. Sure he"s lost on some bets but has won more or he wouldn't be The Oracle.

I always thought buffet, was a genius, that is until he had to dabble in politics when he said he was going to  give 50 million in the war against guns, that made my mind up. when guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns,   wow I can't wait for all the negative post from all the libs...

Only gamble what you can afford to lose, good advice for Vegas or the NYSE, because for someone to win there MUST be a loser.

  As with all the best Ponzi schemes the only winners are those with inside information. Just ask the Clintons, Warren himself or Martha Stewart. Be careful!

This man is as corrupt and hypocritical as the rest of these billionaire "investors". This is a man who says middle class and rich citizens do not pay their fair share of taxes but uses every loophole to not pay his fair share.

I own a portion of 24 head of cattle in Alabama. The bank owns the other portion. This past year, I had a hefer and her new born calf eaten by wild coyotes. All that was left in a 24 hour time period was chewed on bones. I also lost another calf from the same creatures. My neighbor was able to keep one of the wild animals from killing their pet dog. Another neighbor was not so lucky. His pet is gone. Guns serve a multitude of uses. I don't believe a rock or stick will deter these varmits with 2" fangs! I'll gladly share photos of what they look like for anyone who don't know what might be waiting on a child to play in their yard.

Just so you will know, my little farm is located about 2 miles from the City of Jacksonville and Jacksonville State University. It's not an isolated area! Guns are a critical part of taking care of my family and livelihood!

Educate yourself. Read the industrial news articles current and past

Our currently government leadership in the manner its keeping the public blind.

Buy economic insurance and prosper during an economic fail.

Buy gold if you can and if you can't silver in reality is cheaper and smarter buy.

 

Take care and god bless.

I tried to provide various good recourses to read.

Please educate yourself and others.

 

Take care and god bless all.

In our US history prior to 1871 we had a proven governmental system that works

FOR THE PEOPLE. The current sysem gets its lead from the

BIG BANKS and the privately owned Federal Reserve Bank.

 

It is proven factual history all fiat currency systems of any

government always FAIL.

 

Check it out! Educate yourself and prepare!
