  • Berkshire mobile homes unit accused of predatory tactics [View news story]
    'In 1987, Buffett famously stated, "I'll tell you why I like the cigarette business. It costs a penny to make. Sell it for a dollar. It's addictive. And there's fantastic brand loyalty."'

    That is just one example of the man behind the curtain. A more recent one is his famous advocacy for a "millionaire's tax" which of course he knows he will never, never be subjected to. Yet another is his purchase of BNSF, the largest coal carrier to the west coast (China).

    He manages to remain squeaky clean in public, but really cares little outside outside of Wall street. That's true genius.

    Absolutely. If you can't read, understand and abide by the written terms, you shouldn't be in a mortgage. If you can't meet your financial obligations the first time life throws you a curve, then you are living beyond your means. Home ownership is not a right, but a privilege and a responsibility. I raised two kids in an apartment and in fact did not even own a home, or a new car, until they were grown up and on their own.

    Warren in big on monopolies. Looks like he struck gold with this one. Anyone who still believes he is that wholesome, good-natured, fair-minded man needs to look behind the curtains.

  • Hospitals up on comments from SCOTUS's Kennedy [View news story]
    There is so much that is unconstitutional about this law, and yet some on the SC are still locked into promoting this social agenda. The original ruling that the penalty was a "tax" was simply a rationalization to begin with. Now, the fact that many states are resisting this huge expansion of Medicaid (welfare), is a serious Constitutional issue.

  • Cigars part of U.S./Cuba deal [View news story]
    You are totally naive. The responsibility for the continued embargo rests with Castro and his minions. In fact, I'd say that he has gone out of his way to undermine relations with the US, in order to maintain his absolute power.

    It not what they've done to the US, it's what they've not done... show a willingness to move away from a totalitarian form of government and towards any form of democratic reforms.

  • Private-equity agreements under the scope [View news story]
    Public pension funds don't care, they'll either sue the PE firm to get in front of the line, or they'll get the taxpayer to make them whole. It is the public pension fund management that should be scrutinized here. Public unions are treated like private entities until they get into trouble, then suddenly, it's our responsibility...

  • Scientists bash Lockheed Martin's nuclear fusion "breakthrough" [View news story]
    These scientists have turned fusion development into life long careers. They are busy securing funding and perpetuating the status quote. It's historically accurate to say it's often the military that forces the technology forward to meet their needs, ie, aviation, atomic energy, space flight, etc., etc. In this case... smaller and lighter reactors for the Navy.
