Default Warren Buffet

Hey youngsters. I've never started a thread on this section and I figure this one will be my last. I'm attaching a blog resuming a Q&A session with the only guy I personally admire. Maybe most of you haven't heard of Mr. Buffet but I encourage you to read some of his answers.

Sorry, I couldn't resist. Even though you may not think so, this is my way of thanking those who've helped me with my project.

Here's the blog: http://undergroundvalue.blogspot.com...152008_23.html

If anyone wants to read additional info on this man, feel free to pm me.

Regards,

Rafa

the guy represents all that is modest and humble


i love this line
the 60 year old man that got a 25 year old to marry him. When his friends asked how he did it, he replied, “I told her I was 90.”

I watched a 8-10 part series of him doing a similar QnA at some business school, it was good stuff. At the same time i was considering playing in the stock market and then I realized I knew nothing. I still know nothing and have decided to let people who know what they're doing invest my money. That doesn't seem to work out either though because apparently no one else knows how to invest money either.

I think he's by far the greatest investor of all time. You Americans should be really proud to have such upstanding citizens.

I thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about such a special guy.

Chad, if I may be so bold as to suggest one very short book: "One up on Wall Street" by Peter Lynch. I think you'll find it very entertaining.

Hey y8s; I assume you know Jimmy (Buffet) is his nephew.

"Warren Steed Jeffs (born December 3, 1955, in San Francisco, California) was the leader of a controversial Mormon fundamentalist polygynist sect known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS Church) from 2002 to 2007. Jeffs' position in this organization was reportedly that of absolute ruler."

He's just muck-raking...

Thanks. I just read somewhere he declared himself not guilty at his trial. Now I know who he was talking about.

BTW Joe, congrats on your acceptance to Law School; hope you get accepted to Duke. You'll make a fine lawyer.

Sorry, but Warren Buffet is a ******* *******. The guy makes some money and now wants the gov't to raise the **** out of my taxes because he has a guilty conscience. What a tool! If he wants to give more money to the gov't to waste then he should write a check, not lobby for me to pay more...
