    (WMT) has outperformed Buffet (BRK.A) who has underperformed ALL market indices for years.Great buying op for dividend investors to buy big pullbacks. Berkshire/Buffet have been serial under performers for years we would not touch them with a 15 foot pole.The emperor has no clothes and is no oracle amazing he gets all the free bloviation time from the media when he has SO lost his investing edge.APD

    Come on!
    And I thought Warren was going to announce that after a decade he will finally pay the 1 BILLION in back taxes he has been fighting so hard all these years to avoid PAYING!


    All the time telling the sheeple how he and his "pigs at the trough" brethren like Bill Gates need to be TAXED at a higher rate!
    Just to make it fairer!
    What a crock!


    I was raised with some simple edict's, this one among many,
    "People who live in glass houses, should not throw stones", perhaps you heard that one Warren?


    Here's one more,
    "Practice what thou preaches"....

    The man is an American Capitalist. We are not taught to give away money in this country. If the law sucks, it should be changed, but until it is, why pay something that you are not legally obligated to owe? Are we supposed to have some sort of moral guidelines telling us to pay more in taxes although we do not technically owe it? Do you tip a waiter who does terribly as much as you tip a waiter that pays attention to your every need? Do you not take advantage when the same product (brand etc) is cheaper at one store than it is at another?
