The American Dilemma and How We Can Fix It

Posts tagged ‘GEICO’


Regular readers of this blog will recall that I have, on several occasions, taken Warren Buffett, the “Oracle of Omaha” to task for his political statements and actions.  Several weeks ago, the 82 year old chairman of Berkshire-Hathaway made the announcement that he has been diagnosed with first stage prostate cancer.  He reported this as part of his fiduciary responsibility of disclosure as the chairman of a publicly traded company.

The good news, according to Mr. Buffett is that his doctors have a positive view of his ability to overcome this malignancy as it was caught early and are hopeful that he will make a full recovery.  I hope that they are correct.

I don’t approve of Mr. Buffett’s politics – but I wish neither him nor anyone else but the best that life has to offer.

Having said that I will continue my position of withholding my spending dollars from companies which Berkshire Hathaway owns – including GEICO Insurance; See’s Candy; Dairy Queen; Fruit of the Loom and R. C. Willey Home Furnishings.

To your good health, Mr. Buffett.  I hope that you make a full and speedy recovery.
