    IM OUT - CBI has been great for me but OBAMA Taxes are too much

    I have to build cash for retirement and the 20% cap gain is way too hard to make up for Obama to live large in the White House. Let them give more to Unions and AIG but not with my dough.

    Sentiment: Hold

    • As an American you are a disgrace to your country. Taxes for the past 12 years were so low that our government was underfunded and deficits grew because the national defense had been engaged in 2 wars, hundreds of thousand veterans coming back needing all sorts of medical and disability support, and you probably think like the traitor Grover Norquist that our federal goverrnment should be weakened and shrunk so that it can be drowned in a bathtub. But during Clinton's administration the taxes were higher and the country prospered. Hell during Reagan's adminstration the taxes were higher its only George Bush Jr. "W" that our nation was plundered and you complain...I bet you are really suffering...from your own #$%$.

      CBI is an international company and it will continue to appreciate it, but to a greedy sick screw like you go take your #$%$ money and leave are jerk.

    • Amen Brother! I have held CBI since the 2 for 1 stock split at $45 many years ago-bought some more at $40 and some at $5.80 and some in between-my overall cost basis is $18-time to take the cash and run. I am approaching retirement as well and I'm afraid of the upcoming tax increases-especially capital gains. Big government=big taxes!
