Maybe you should buy some Berkshire and let rich people make you rich : )

Maybe you should read my post.

No where did I say I hated him. No where did I say the poor would be directly affected.

But, what I did say was all true.

He is very rich.....true

He is about to make a lot MORE money......true

The mortgage market failure is what he banked on and made $3.7B and now he stands to make more on the upswing.....true

Many people lost money when said market failed and I am sure many of them are miserable......true

Nope, I did not misread the article. I simply put it into plain, yet true terms.

It was you who read something into what I said based on your perceptions of how I think.
