PoorGettingRicher.jpg
In spite of what you hear, the poor are getting richer. It’s a Canadian study, but you can bet the results would be the same in the U.S. Basically, the complaint about the rich getting richer while the poor get poorer is another crock of moldy baloney from the leftwing propaganda machine.

As long as they are smart enought to vote for liberal politicians the elected elite is happy. As far as they are concerned that’s as smart as the unwashed masses need to be anyway.

Corporate Greed is making them dumb. The same culprits who replaced our gold back money with worthless fiat. Creating the illusion of wealth, while in reality it’s a way to enslave us.

The “poor” in this country live BETTER than the “middle class” in some other countries. And they do it on OUR tax dollars. Still, they think they are ENTITLED to more.

And the rich are getting poorer.
Exactly what the progs have been pushing for.

Say What? Tell that to AlGore and Lurch

“Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital has announced the purchase of H.J. Heinz Co. for $23 billion in cash.”

I heard about the Heinz purchase on the radio. My first thought: I wonder if this is a payoff from Buffet to the new Secretary of State. Remember, Hillary’s ruling against the Keystone Pipeline vastly enriched Warren Buffet by keeping his railroad busy. Now, mere days after Hillary’s replacement is sworn in, here’s Buffet paying over market price for the company owned by John Kerry’s wife.

Hey, I might be paranoid, but sometimes they really are out to get us.

Reminded me of this old one and had to go look for it, always wondered if Buffet’s fingerprints were anywhere on this. But to quote a Great American Statesman, “What difference at this point does it make?” and I never bothered looking.

“A cargo train filled with biofuels crossed the border between the US and Canada 24 times between the 15th of June and the 28th of June 2010; not once did it unload its cargo, yet it still earned millions of dollars.”

Cripes, this is turning into the Buffet thread, but look at this: http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-02-14/guess-who-was-buying-hnz-stock-its-clients

Seems Goldman Sachs advised its clients to sell Heinz shortly before the buyout announcement. Meanwhile, Goldman was buying those shares for themselves because they knew the buyout offer was coming. Can you believe how filthy these Wall Street people are?

Hey JP, check out the follow-up

“But for the most part the post was written in jest. Turns out the joke was on everyone else, because just as we feared, or rather knew, Goldman was indeed implicated all along.”

But don’t worry, the SEC is now on the case. [\off]

Since the Obama administration has a fleet of ex-Goldman Sachs people working in it, don’t expect any criminal charges to arise.

Think we read the same sites. Saw that and while by no stretch am I a part of any of that world I swear I could hear the venom and disdain for GS dripping while reading that.

It does sound like Buffet, but he owns Burlington Northern, not CN Rail. A quick Google search shows that BN tried to buy part of CN at one point but the Canadian government rejected the merger. Of course, people like you and me are unlikely to know all the relationships and ownership positions Buffet might have. If he tried to buy CN, he probably already owned a shitload of shares.

That was an exercise in stupidity, reading that article. Obama’s “green” programs are such a joke, it’s absolutely ridiculous. I can feel the earth getting greener each day he’s in office. Excuse me while I puke.

I’m guessing we see the people who pay for this in the mirror each morning.

I try not to look in the mirror in the morning.
