I was terribly surprised to find out that one of the world’s richest guys whom offered lip service to Obama’s “tax the rich” class warfare nonsense back when his insurance companies stood to make huge financial gains if the Feds jacked up taxes, and especially estate taxes, on the rich, ended up having another one of his companies making out like a damn bandit after the WH killed the Keystone XL pipeline. One of Warren Buffets companies, Burlington Northern, a railroad company in true Monopoly – the game for you illiterates – fashion, which makes oodles of money hailing oil from Canada stands tomake even more money after Obama’s cancelation of the XL pipeline.
Bleh, nothing to see here. It’s not like this WH has a history of such crony capitalism writ large. I mean the billions we sank into so many dubious green companies & technologies, only to see massive failures and no serious positive return of any value to speak of, for example, was actually just another series of “accidental misinvestements”. Yeah, sure. The US administration that has done the most during its tenure to abrogate itself the ability to use the law as a cudgel and allow it to pick which companies and ideas are winners and losers, and which despite all the facts to the contrary has decided they will spurn fossil fuels in favor of unicorn farts – green technology – even if it causes massive pain to the average American they so pretend to care about, just happens to make another decision that hurts the average citizen, but benefits the very people they pretend to so hate for being wealthy.
I see why Buffet loves this guy and feels it is a great idea to back his class warfare shenanigans. There is some huge money to be made here, and all it takes is the kissing of these champions of the little people’s asses. Of course, I remind you all that the only evil entities are these rich oil companies. And then only the “rich oil companies” that don’t end up being the largest contributors to the political campaigns of democrats like BP was for Obama. There is a pattern here, isn’t there? I am sure all the three letter DNC propaganda outlets will be stumbling over each other to report this tidbit or anything like it too. In the mean time, the leftists will tell us that when a rich guy like Buffet tells us we should be happy to get taxed harder, by collectivists that will then piss that money away buying votes with all kinds of stupid schemes, that we should take his advice. That he is actually making even more money because of these schemes, and is also likely to get himself an exclusion from these class warriors for a nice donation to their campaign funds, should not dissuade us people trying to keep government from fleecing us from bending over and liking what follows.
