I don't understand. Isn't it Buffet's job to be a cheerleader for the economy to get better pretty much no matter what? If Warren Buffet comes out and says that the new giant government welfare bill is bad, there will be a giant knee-jerk reaction and Wall Street contraction that will hurt him in the near AND long term.

I'm actually glad he's doing his part to help turn things around, but that's really all it is: He's allaying people's fears and spreading some good news amongst consumers and investors in hopes of thing rallying sooner rather than later...

Warren Buffet and I are descended from the same Mayflower passenger.

I guess this means I'm on "cousin" Warren's list of heirs.

im not looking for links or wiki pages. im wondering about what you guys discussed when you were out there fighting.

I know why....The WTC represents Americas god to them and sadly it does to many of us.

you dont understand? knowing this response was coming, i already addresed it in a prior post in this thread. a pre-emptive strike so to speak.

anyways-

Investors are mindful that the stock market typically turns around, on average, about four months ahead of the economy, so stocks tend to rise even when economic data still isn't robust. The S&P 500 is up 33.6 percent since Wall Street's rally began March 10. The Dow is up 28.5 percent.
nasdaq is up about the same as well.

"but...but...but... obama..."

still, experts in the know (as opposed to messageboard panic artists) all admit there is no magic pill for a cure.

we are in unchartered waters. atleast now, we are a few nautical miles away trying to steer the economical titanic away from the iceberg as opposed to a just a few thousand yards.

FWIW, a nautical mile is roughly 2000 yds, so a few nautical miles is about the same as a few thousand yds.

is it really? you must be using republimath.

nautical mile = 2000 yds X (few =3) = 6000 yds.

few 1000 yds = 3000 yds.

twice the difference was the difference between the titanic hitting the iceberg and sinking.

(i still cant figure out why people keep coming at me with such rediculous arguments)



point still stands.

3000 yds isn't much of a difference, I assumed you we're trying to make it a greater distance, my bad. I guess you were saying we are only slightly better off??

if youve seen the movie "titanic" 3000 yds was the difference was the diffefence between sinking or sailing home.

take it for what its worth or make up what ever you wish.

this seems to bother you, preacher.

i find it fascinating how many people continue to ignore reality, to the extent of making up fuzzy math to try and dispute a point in any of my threads.

why would you wanna try to pull the wool over peoples eyes?
