    Citizens United states that money is speech.

    Why do CONZ sit by and cheer as one of their own rails against someone's RIGHT to all the free speech their money can buy ?

    I have no idea how this is at all relevant to the topic or what you're talking about, but I don't think you do either.

    Almost all of Buffett's acquisition were done as stock swaps so that the Seller would not have to pay taxes. Moreover, the vast majority of Buffetts wealth is in a trust that can't be taxed.

    Hypocrite much, Warren?

    Christie is right! If you want to give more money to the government, just write a check!

    Amen
    Amen
    Amen....

    I would have phrased it a bit differently....
    I would have said STFU! ....
    What an asswipe this guy Buffet is.
    He takes advantage of everything that is available to him....
    Then he whines about it.

    Didn't even work for his money and he wants us to pay more. But they eat that stuff up like nectar.
