does anyone know how many super cat insurance
policies GEICO has outstanding. these are policies GIECO
write to otehr insurance companies, insuring the
insurance company against large claims caused by widespread
with all the fires in florida, heat waves
in other states looking to blossom into lareg scale
fires like in florida, expectations of a very sever
hurrican season, GIECO could be exposed to very big claims
Buffet, writes about super cat
policies in his anal reporst, saying that they are a good
source of premiums. he warns tha twhile they do not have
claims to pay on them fvery often, when they do the
claims are very very big.
It is this bullshit war on drugs that is causing
the crime problem in the inner cities. It's the white
elite who hate minorities and are using drug laws
against them. The middle class has ALWAYS hated the
jazz/blues playing black folk who like to smoke a little
hoochie every once in a while.
REALLY REALLY miss smokin' weed...
You cant tell who is smart, who is dumb, and who
is lazy just by looking at them... so I think it is
unfair to judge people by their races.
the otherhand, I think it is entirely fair to
categorize a person by what the majority of them do... Take
the Japanese for example. 99.9% of them take of there
shoes when entering the home. So is it unfair to
categorize them on their shoes? Probably not.
about Mexican workers in California. I've seen honest
Mexican subcontractors and I've seen sneaky ones too. But
yes, the majority of them steal small tools out of my
garage, take home fruit off my trees, and even walk out
with an old pair of shoes! I think... here I am rich
and carefree. And them, poor enough to be stealing
food. What about hardworking. They are by far the
hardest working group I have seen. Can you blame me if I
put everything out of sight and lock everything down
when I hire subcontractors, especially
How about blacks? Are they dumb just because they are
black... I don't think so. What about crime? I've met a
black mane who was more honest than I am. So, should
you tag a black man as a criminal just because he is
black. No way. BUT what about the majority? I believe
the average life span of a newborn black American
male is 21. So should I get flogged for avoiding black
neighborhoods when driving my brand new Lexus?
the vast majority of us are NOT racist... just
You are confusing hardworking & Lazy, with
peoples race.color or religion......
You guys are
way smarter than me......
I can't tell who is
a good or bad worker. Just by looking at that
person...I can't tell what religion or how intelligent they
are either by just looking at someone.
YOU DO THAT.??????????
May the WEB be with
Also forget those old outdated Euro-centric
notions of hard work, merit, and competency. That stuffs
all passe' now.
What the fuck are you talking
about dude? How many "white boys" you see out in the
field picking your veggies? I'm 100% anglo but you have
to admit that WE are the lazy bums. Mexicans are
some of the hardest working people you will ever
You are confusing Africans with Mexicans
Congratulations on your BRK holdings and a big
hearty congratulation on your being "brown". Are you
also a "victim of past discrimination", maybe you've
been "oppressed" Well my friend you have hit paydirt
bigtime. Forget WEB and investing....you're gonna look
back on BRK stock like chump change. Also forget those
old outdated Euro-centric notions of hard work,
merit, and competency. That stuffs all passe' now. The
real action for you is down in Washington. Here's
three surefire plums in the new racial spoils system:
1. You are automatically a "preferred bidder" when
the FCC auctions off licenses [can be worth up to
25%] 2.Your business is eligible to be DBE
[Disadvantaged business enterprise] They got $6.4 billion in
govt. contracts in 1996. 3.Your status as a "socially
and economically disadvantaged person" qualifys you
under the Small Business Administration set-asides
worth a cool $14.4 billion in 1996. OOOPS.....I almost
forgot a little extra sweetner.....the SBA's famous CASH
BONUS program to prime contractors who sub out to
minority owned firms......a form of bribery that uses
tax-payer money for the payoff!! Oh geez Elk I almost
forgot the most important question of all ....are you
also female? If so, your luck doubles. Well that's
enough sarcasm out of me......but I will say one thing
in closing ......I lived in Bibb County Ga. in the
late 40's and I saw black men in chains when I was a
child. I also saw a black man break his own leg with a
sledge hammer so he could get off the work gang. It made
his white straw boss so mad he let the man lay
squirming on the ground with the bone poking out before he
called for the truck to carry him off. The government
programs of the last 30 years were to make up for those
hard times. How they ever got so distorted is beyond
As a "brown" BRK holder, I heartily agree that
you ought to move to Europe.
In fact, why not
move right NOW? I suspect that the good old USA might
even be a better place for it.
Let's keep the
discussion to Berkshire Hathaway, ok? In whatever
intelligible language you choose.
