      Trump defender of wall street, not America.

    • OAT351 Reply

      Trump is funneling as much cash as possible into his own pocket. The budget deficit is going to be $4,000,000,000,000.00 next year. Where do you think all of that money is going?

    2008 crash Buffett asked the Fed subsidize company’s he had investments in. This time there was no need because the Fed is subsidizing companies with no outside pressure. There’s no risk for Buffett if the Feds always bailing him and his buddies out when markets crash.

    American people need protection from people like Warran Buffet and Bill Gates.

    • Earl Putnal Reply

      Bill Gates yes. Warren Buffett creates wealth. Gates subsidizes wealth. And doesn’t give back. I’d rather trust Warren Buffett. Than Bill Gates. Longer ranged profit. Compared to losing moneys.

    • Philmore James Reply

      @Earl Putnal how do he do that?

    • Virginia O'Flaherty Reply

      Who else is mightily tired of everything. We can’t even die in peace. Gotta have rich fucks making gobs of cash and smirking about it. JHC!

    • Mia Novalic Reply

      Tony Pdxi No we need protection from the filthy leftist communists and right wing religious zealots and have actual experts run the country and leave the private sector alone 😉

    • Evan Stroud Reply

      If he only cared about MAKING money he wouldn’t have a charity designed to give away most of your wealth for philanthropy

    • rjmidnite Reply

      @Evan Stroud that’s why there billionaires they don’t care about money .lol. all rich give to charity it looks good for anyone. and he probably writes that off.

    • Minh Pham Reply

      50 billion still hurts to a billionaire

    • rjmidnite Reply

      funny how Nancy and Chuck and YouTube and Hollywood and fake news all have millions and bllions and we have nothing ,how’s that work? lol. but they care, roflmmfao . democrates been in charge of there states and cities for decades and there still all slums ,lol. but they care lmmfao .

    • CrazyLegsMcGee Reply

      @rjmidnite Lol you’re an idiot. Democrats AND GOP are all about money. GOP states are some of the poorest. They will happily give money and tax breaks and bailouts though to companies, but hates “socialism”. GOP practice socialism just like those liberals. Except they give to the rich rather than the poor. Oh and about those “slums”, any large city has a homeless problem. Lol do yourself a favor and learn something before trying to talk politics.

    • Godwin Tan Reply

      Who ever is making decisions is no warren buffett. It seems like this is the beginning of the end for Berkshire.

  11. Godwin Tan Reply

    I thought Buffett’s cardinal rule was to not lose money?

    • Fly Beep Reply

      …in the long term. Guess you didn’t get that part.

    • Elvin Mingel Reply

    He makes his money as a pimp, avoiding doing anything constructive or positive with his abilities.

    • Kevin Farrell Reply

      Just read a great biography on Warren, sounds like you should too.

  15. Mauricio T Reply

    As long as the maximisation of shareholder value remains at the expense of labor exploitation. Speaking of socio-economic inequality…

    • Mauricio T Reply

      Meanwhile, I wonder how drinking 5 plus cans of Coke a day can make you smarter?…
