    Why are they posting record profits?

    Warren Buffett -- while not the business magnate you are -- might know something about it:

    Buffet also said that banks have been victimized by evicted homeowners. Still love him, or what?

    He buys the love of the ne-er do wells by wanting to hurt lots of somewhat rich people by increasing a tax that will have absolutely no effect on his lifestyle and will increase his power

    He is as altruistic as a new Pusher undercutting other dealers with lower priced heroin

    Saying something and doing something are two totally different things.

    He doesn't have the power to change the tax code unilaterally. All he can DO is advocate for his position ... which is what he's doing.

    One of the more stupid tactics on this board is accusing others of the stuff one is well known for engaging in. I blast Buffett for his hypocrisy not his wealth, YOu don't hear me saying he should be taxed more

    so your silly and idiotic response is just that

    major fail

    Yeah, it was a pretty idiotic response, right? And yet a day doesn't go by that conservatives don't lob that piece of turd at liberals.

    One of the better tactics against hypocrites is to turn their turd hose back on them so they can see how turd-filled it really is.

    Of course there is nothing hypocritical about Buffett's stance. He's advocating for a change in the tax code that would affect him. He's not trying to exempt himself.

    Hypocrisy would be arguing that everyone should be taxed at the same rate, regardless of whether it would have drastically different effects on different people ... and then crying about a disparate effect from a tax on the wealthy.
