Why Buffett is rich

Fairfield, CT

#1 Mar 6, 2008
After dealing with Buffett's company, Geico I can see why he is so rich. One of Geico's insured rammed me from behind and pushed me into the car in front of me and Buffett and his Geico cronies are arguing that it was my fault. It is no wonder he is so rich, ripping off consumers. According to my insurance company which is appalled at Geico, they said that this is business as usual for Geico.

Why didn't Clinton pardon a pig who wouldn't pay .03 of his worth in taxes? I'm a single mother with NO net worth, and I pay taxes.

Nobody west of Patchogue along the South Shore made the list either. I think they traditionally call that area the 'Southwest Sewer District', Bayshore at about the center of it.

The "eye of a needle" was the term used for the side entrance to a Roman fort back in the time of Jesus Christ. It was small, but accessible, entry way. Sure, it wasn't the front gate...but it was still possible to enter through.

With so many rich people in this country, why are so many children and and senior citizens starving to death. The seniors can't even afford to keep heat on and many of them have to eat cat food to survice. Why don't they give some of that money to these poor individuals. Not fair. I give them credit, many of them worked very hard for their money, but, donate some to the poor and to the children.

Thankyou

The second-richest is Carlos Slim Helu, a Mexican telecommunications executive whose fortune doubled to the last two years, to $60 billion.
With all that money why can't he sprinkle it around Mexico to keep them there instead of us paying for them.

I had a similar experience with Geico. One of there insured drivers pulled into traffic and was hit by an oncoming car, which in turn hit my wife's car, while she was stopped at a light. He only had a 10k limit on his Geico insurance. The total damage for all three cars was well over that. So, my insurance had to cover it. Then they turned around and raised my rates.

It is a shame that with all this money, there is so much poverty on long island, I know most of these people worked for their money, but not everyone is fortunate enough with the ability or education to do so. So the rich should enjoy their riches, but they should really help out the poverty levels.

These rip off merchants deserve the title of corporate SWINE. Backed up of course by the Bush gang and the ignorant REDNECKS, who allow this criminality. Disgusting.
