BRK may have been indirectly bailed out by the various federal institutions. please note that BRK did some bailing out of its own. the GS deal went farther south than it is north today. GE is still to the south. hard to tell on the wrigley thing and others.
if you are like i am, and saw no direct benefit except for the making work pay, nearly invisible, tax break that expires jan 1, 2011, then rant all you want about things your elected/appointed representatives did or did not do.
as far as those who have a fiduciary duty to others(shareholders), like WEB, and take it seriously, until you can point to one dime in their pockets that did not also benefit millions of others, STFU!!!!!!
You just wont own up to the fact that Buffett preaches free markets and captialism but when his empire was crumbling he was bailed out and still is being bailed out. Buffett and you are HYPOCRITES MAY YOU BOTH ROT IN HELL
