A former Oklahoma banker and I agreed at lunch that:

1. The statement from Buffet about BoA and the bathtub is bizarre.
2. Does not play well here in the Bible belt, so don't blame us country folk.
3. Was a picture we could do without on a down day.
4. Was intended to parallel the supposed old timer's squeaky clean conservativeness. Implying he is willing to stake his reputation on them not being dirty as everybody is saying, since he just cleaned-up.

    Re: Does not play well here in the Bible belt, so don’t blame us country folk.

    But, apparently, divorce does. Or so the latest statistics determine. God Almighty (no pun intended) would you square State right wing fanatics just rapture your hypocritical selves up into the clouds and leave the rest of us at peace.

    By the way, Warren just cleared 1.4 Billion yesterday. Other than rabbiting a race where someone else broke 4.00 what’s your claim to fame Russ?


    p.s. Have you taken a look back at your prognostications circa Feb. 2008 lately? Rarely have the oh so righteous been so wrong. Fast-forward to August 2011, I’m long oil (short term) in a big way. We’ll see.

    @Lon Evans, I see you still haven’t learned to be civil when you crawl out from under your rock every year or so. You should take some social skills therapy, I hear it works wonders for people with your affliction. But then again, as the old saying goes, “Once an A** H*** always an A** H***” might be a good description of your personality.

    Lon, Lon, Lon

    Did my mile runs for fun, out doing a serious miler like you bother you that much?

    Or is it that even the Vanguard S&P has beat Buffet lately despite the media cheering his every move?

    Or was it the S&P doubling the next couple years? That was right after the accountants were taken to task for inflexibility during the crisis (less than 3 weeks after my Feb. “prognostication” describing the problem)
