Buffett Insider Trading?

Buffett insider trading?

Uh oh, standby for some very serious allegations about ketchup and Warren Buffett’s company Berkshire Hathaway. 

Specifically: The Securities and Exchange Commission said Friday that it had obtained a court order to freeze assets in a Swiss trading account, questioning profits made ahead of the announcement of H.J. Heinz Co.’s $28 billion acquisition by a group including Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway.

If it turns out Warren Buffet is the insider or he had knowledge of the insider, add him to the list of people who need to stuff a pie in their piehole. The whole we can pay more taxes meme is tiresome. Especially if it turns out he is insider trading. (Although in all fairness to the man, the amount made, less than 2 million clams, is pretty much small potatoes.)

  1. He will probably pay it all and then penalty with out moving a comma in his check book. My point to the guys who think they want to pay more taxes, why not just write a check to the Dept of the Treasury, for any amount. I bet they would be happy to cash it! The people that say that they need to be taxed more, always A) have the super smart people hiding there taxes, B) Never give up the extra money, if it would be taxed that’s ok? But not willingly give it up.

  2. Sergeant Major call the bugler to sound the call “regiment to form a hollow square” around the Tomato Ketchup, it must be protected at all costs.


    And so it came to pass that the Regiment stood strong and protected the Tomato Ketchup against the forces of tyranny, to allow the rest of mankind to savour its delight for generations to follow.

    Yours Aye.
    (Every one loves Heinz Tomato Ketchup; right)?

    Captain Buffet: Thank you very much.
