Didn't you Poo, Poo that suggestion when Buffet made it?
What about the poor stockholders that just made 20% overnight? You don't want to listen to their crying....
Warren Buffett owns control of John Kerry's future?
Buffett buys Heinz
Since Warren is so anxious to pay more in taxes, maybe he can donate all profits from Heinz earnings to help pay down the national debt.
Kerry made the announcement that wasn't covered much by the MSM that he would 'sell off' some of 'his' assets if he was confirmed in order to not have a conflict of interest in supporting anything to do with 'big business' later on. You don't get much bigger than Heinz......Wonder how his wife felt about 'her' inheritance being sacrificed? Maybe they both thought it would be a good idea to dump it quickly now that those corporate taxes have increased, payroll health insurance for all those employees was going to kick them in the a$$, and now BO wants to remove all those 'nasty' loopholes. After all, doing the math and staying in business is 'hard work' and Kerry hasn't had do much of either for a long time.
He had an opportunity to live a life of leisure without lifting a finger. Instead he chose to give away his inheritance and go to work for himself...and, thereby take money from other people and hide it off-shore. He'd have been thought of better had he sat on his hands, sipped Perrier and kept out of sight. Instead, he chose a path to evil when he struck out on his own.
See how easy it is to make up a twisted and inane story? I'm willing to bet, however, that some would bleat their approval of it.

Kerry is the wealthiest U.S. Senator. Kerry is wealthy in his own name, and is the beneficiary of at least four trusts inherited from Forbes family members, including his mother, who died in 2002. Forbes magazine (a major business magazine named for an unrelated Forbes family) estimated that if elected, Kerry would have been the third-richest U.S. President in history when adjusted for inflation. This assessment was based on the couple's combined assets, but Kerry and Heinz signed a prenuptial agreement that keeps their assets separate. Kerry's financial disclosure form for 2011 put his personal assets in the range of $230,000,000 to $320,000,000.
there would be a conflict of interest, you idiot. If he openly supported anything to do with big business, his wife (and by osmosis and bank accounts sharing, HE) could and probably would benefit. So far, there hasn't been ANYTHING ELSE that HE has sold off like he said he was going to.
You do realize you're carrying on a discussion "with an idiot". Perhaps you're too stupid to think that far ahead.
NOW I'll respond.

Kerry has as much of a conflict of interest with HER money as I do with her money/businesses. Assets...separate...2 words...I can't make it any simpler, for a simpleton.
2 words are too many?
I'll try it with one word
Forming or viewed as a unit apart or by itself: "two separate issues".
adjective. detached - distinct - individual - discrete
And although I'll concede that I waste my time responding to you, I'm not stupid by any means of the imagination. If you own something that I also enjoy the assets/profits from, and I make political decisions that will affect your business, does it not also affect me? Wouldn't that even a little bit influence my decision making?

You haven't heard?...When they go into politics...they put everything in a blind trust and their memory is scrubbed and they have no recollection of any financial dealings of any friends or relatives....(unless they are from Chicago associates)
RE: I'll concede that I waste my time responding to you
Been doing some research on definition of idiot, According to this we could be members of the same family tree.
An idiot, dolt, or dullard is a mentally deficient person, or someone who acts in a self-defeating or significantly counterproductive way.
Come here Sis..give me a hug.
Based on your definitions........and based on the fact that you just responded five times to my post....and based on the fact that you had an entire conversation with yourself in a seventeen minute period of time (proving you can't keep a train of thought going for long)....and then had to come back at 3:30 in the morning, about six hours later) to post again, obviously I got to you enough that you felt it necessary, since you obviously couldn't sleep because of this, to actually look up the definition of your 'illness'. And you're worried that I personally don't have anything to do?
I didn't want to confuse you with 5 subjects in the same post.
When you go on the rampage it's not unusual to find every subject under the sun in there...none of which have any connection to the others.
then had to come back at 3:30 in the morning, about six hours later)
Let me "enlighten " you....It's 3:30 in the morning when it's 7:30 in the morning WHERE I LIVE...unlike you I don't live in Lala land (the OTHER California) The time stamp on posts are West Coast time...PST
BTW I get up a 6 am every morning...that would be 2 am in Cali.
6 hours sleep?...without waking up?...I can't remember the last time I slept for 6 hours straight.
Talk to you later, Hun.
