Warren Buffet just bought a Greek Island!
American business magnate, one of the world’s most successful investors, Warren Buffett has reportedly bought the Greek island of Agios Thomas for 15 mln euro, according to the website of the Greek newspaper Proto Thema and became yet another celebrity with his own piece of Greece.
According to a spokesperson for Proto Organization, Steven Taylor, many celebrities had expressed interest in purchasing land in Greece. The property consulting company had also recently advised Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to buy the small Ionian island of Gaia Sogia.
According to Proto Thema newspaper, Warren Buffett believes that there are plenty of opportunities in Greece at the moment, if someone is willing to invest.
Dozens of islands are currently up for sale in Greece.
Well, what else are they going to spend their money on? At least Greece isn’t GIVING their islands away, although I’m sure the rich are getting bargain basement prices. Obama wanted to close Guantanamo Bay, Congress wouldn’t let him, so, he opened up trade with Cuba, and then sold them the one thing he couldn’t get closed on his own.
We now Cuba demands they close it, which is what Obama has wanted to do all along.
Tell me, how much do you think he GOT for it?
Obama isn’t going to ‘sell’ that land to Cuba? He can’t do that? Well, what have the Clinton’s been doing for years? You think they don’t get paychecks for selling American assets, like uranium to Russia?
Really? Hasn’t Obama gotten every thing he wanted so far? (Except for our guns…that’s coming.)
Who know? Maybe Obama will build the first “international” Cuban golf course on it, where he can play for free the rest of his life. Or maybe Warren would like to ‘invest’ there too.
How many times have you heard GOP politicians talk about the need for a Keystone Pipeline? And how many times have you heard the democrats kill any chance of it ever being built?
Remember that really good buddy of Obama’s? Warren the “I play ukulele!” Buffet? It’s not just stocks and Dairy Queen he is good at: it’s trains.
Here’s an email I purposely held off until today, because I think it stands alone, about just who really runs this country:
The rich elites? Or the politicians in their pockets?

Here we are, just a week after the election, and if it was lawful to print out the bad news on the internet and burn them in some kind of puritanical ritual in my back yard…I would. But, that was outlawed years ago. Here’s a few headlines:
Figures obtained by The Associated Press through a freedom of information request show a steadily rising tally of prosecutions in Britain for electronic communications — phone calls, emails and social media posts — that are “grossly offensive or of an indecent, obscene or menacing character — from 1,263 in 2009 to 1,843 in 2011. The number of convictions grew from 873 in 2009 to 1,286 last year.
NO MORE TWINKIES: When you can’t stop Americans from eating fatting sugary sweets because they are cheap and good, you simply make the employers pay heavy Obamacare fines. It seems, on top of its troubles, Hostess Brands’ Union workers are striking.
Hostess Brands CEO said Wednesday the company will liquidate unless striking workers return to the job by the end of the day on Thursday. “We simply do not have the financial resources to survive an ongoing national strike,” Greg Rayburn said in a statement.
NUTTY CANADIAN MOTHERS: When one kid gets sneezy around nuts, what does a mother do? Go out and get her free government- paid- for allergy prescription for her son? NO! You cut down that dangerous forest!
Canadian mother Donna Giustizia, motivated by the danger surrounding childhood nut allergies, is on a mission to have the oak trees near her kid’s school removed. Her reasoning? She believes that the acorns that frequently drop from these trees put children with severe allergies at risk.
SOCIAL ENGINNERING SCIENTISTS HELPED OBAMA: When it comes to manipulating people, our social engineering scientists make Goebbels look like he’s still in Kindergarten. Obama won, with the help of our finest human behavior scientist!
This apparent reliance on a scientific model of human behavior was, apparently, unprecedented. The scientists who the Obama campaign informally consulted with on this approach had offered their services to the Kerry campaign in 2004 and were rebuffed. A few Senators had met with them about using their ideas, but nothing concrete had emerged. However, those involved told the Times that they did see traces of their own ideas reflected in the Obama campaign’s actual strategy:
MORE LAID OFF: Yes, YOU voted for it!
John Metz — who runs 40 Denny’s and Dairy Queens and owns the Hurricane Grill & Wings franchise — says his business will be hit hard by the January 2014 start of President Barack Obama’s healthcare mandate. Obamacare will make businesses or franchises with more than 50 workers to offer a government-approved insurance plan. Other restaurant chains including Papa John’s, Olive Garden and Red Lobsters have already announced that they will have to reduce employees’ hours. Either that or they will have to pay a penalty of $2,000 for each full-time worker in businesses with more than 30 workers.
“It’s an attempt to return not just to Soviet times but to the Stalin era, when any conversation with a foreigner was seen as a potential threat to the state,” said Lyudmila Alexeyeva, 85, a former Soviet dissident and veteran human rights activist.
And if that isn’t enough to make you wonder…add to that list that Warren Buffet is already promoting Hillary Clinton for President, Obama has mandated police departments all over the country to let members of Mosques train at our local police stations, and the New World Order of human behavior has introduced “Meatless Mondays.” I don’t care if Paul McCartney is meatless…I will continue to eat meat on Mondays until they drag me away.
And NBC is going to do a TV series to trash the reputation of the best President we ever had: George Washington.
And THIS is just one day’s headlines…
Nobody can wait to hear tomorrow’s.
Nobody Got Email
(Do you dream of a government that works? Do you also dream that you had a one night stand with Brittany Spears and she fell madly in love with you and gave you all her money? Can we all go to sleep and wake up in 1980 again and start over?Can I go back in time and marry John Lennon?)
Nobody always likes it when I get emails from my liberal friends, because it’s a good sign that they are also fed up with the power and the glory. Trouble is: they think the Republicans are the problems of Congress, not the democrats. Here’s an email, that claims that Warren Buffet made this up and sent it around the internet. I doubt it serioulsy, (some girl named Rosie did it) but it does have very good suggestions. The chances of any Congrass voting themselves out of big pensions, raises, term limits, health care, and cushy travel expenses are about the same as you or I winning the lotto, or Michael Moore marrying Joe Biden.
But we can dream can’t we?
