    • "During Aparteid in South Africa we divested companies that did business there."

      There are several differences.

      #1 CBS doesn't do business with Allianz. Allianz is a shareholder. They cannot force anyone to sell their stock in the company.

      #2 The thrid reich no longer reigns in Germany and Allianz is no longer involved with Nazisim.

      The comparison is just utterly stupid as is the assertion that CBS's receivables "aren't real".

    • "Before you attack the United States look at your own shareholder Allianz. Ask them to pay their insurance claims. They still haven't paid. That's the point."

      Why should CBS tell a large shareholder what to do with their business? You are a lunatic.

    • "Allianz is a large CBS shareholder. Do you accept that? Do you agree that the President of Allianz worked with Hitler?"

      Germany in the 30s was a right-wing dictatorship there were many many German companies that were forced to work with the goverment otu of fear for their lives.

      This does not apply to these companies nearly 70 years later. Nor does it have anything to do with the value of CBS's assets.

      "If you buy a stock like CBS and it starts to go down. Sell it after a 7% loss."

      What is your qualification for giving investment advice? We've already determined that you can't analyze a balance sheet very well.

      Selling a stock after its gone down 7% is a sure way to lock in long-term negative returns.

    • As mentioned ALL of the netword news shows have lost viewers. The reason for this is the advent of cable news and the internet.

      But what can we say about someone who reads the Drudge report?
