Washington Post Company accelerates payment of 2013 dividends. In 2012, the WaPo Company paid a quarterly dividend of $2.45 per share or $9.80 for the year. They’ve just announced that they’re going to pay the entire 2013 dividend of $9.80 per share on December 27th, 2012. Why would they do this? T-A-X-E-S. BTW – Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway is a BIG WaPo shareholder.

Warren again steps up to the plate and stuffs his bank account while claiming the rich should pay more taxes. Warren’s ass and mouth are evidently interchangeable.

Liberals are offended, but never deny their “For thee but not for me” hypocrisy.

If they’re paying dividends, they’re doing well enough to want to stay in business.

Why do it now WaPo? Is it that all of you high paid executives and investors wish to dodge the tax man? Come on now, talk it, so now walk it. Write that check to the Fed Government and stop being like Warren Buffet, trying to beat the man and the system.

Lying hypocritical bastards all!!!
