Excuse me old Chief of the Midwest free market economy, who anointed you the mediator between the people and the government? Anyone? I didn't think so. Please Mr. Buffett, you grumpy old SOB, drink a nice big cup of STFU! While anyone in this country can admire your personal success story, you've become complacent in how your mind sees the economy. You have a mountain of wealth and capital that for all intents and purposes will never be destroyed. Your personal life and the ability to live it without fear of homelessness, hunger or untreated medical conditions, is completely insulated from how the market meddlers and their dangerous actions affect us average Joes. Sure, I understand you don't mind the death tax, nor do you have a major problem with the redistribution schemes that congress has cooked up in recent years, but how much have you paid to play inside the system and help keep us serfs down at serf level?
“The truth is we’re running a federal deficit that’s 9 percent of gross domestic product,” Buffett said. “That’s stimulative as all get out. It’s more stimulative than any policy we’ve followed since World War II.”YES SIR, Mr. Buffet sir! We all asked for that economic stimulus! Every one of us in these great United States ask that our federal government mortgage our future and that of our children to create an ordered growth that has no doubt benefited your company's bottom line. How pathetic are you to tell us to shut up and take the elitists' position and not partake in OUR government. No Mr. Buffet, money doesn't by you the people's votes, it only buys you influence in the representative republic. What you failed to realize is that once the serfs have enough putting up with your garbage peddling, we will do everything in our power, to take back the means of opportunity so we can potentially reach the riches you have acquired.
Further Mr. Buffet, you yourself should know that the true Keynesian model is for the government to run surpluses in times of economic prosperity, so that it can then pull from the safety net in times of need. Once the safety net is used, borrowing from the savers of the country, or using foreign financing is acceptable, as long as that leverage is paid back as quickly as possible to put the country back in the black.
But, I digress, Mr. Buffet knows all of this and has used it to make billions upon billions. The sad matter remains that the old kook has officially gone off his free market rocker, simply because he knows that to maintain his power and riches he must toe the party line of the ruling class. All aboard the country class train, as it runs clean through Mr. Buffet's pompous ass.
