Clinton

And they liquidated.” ~ Howard Warren Buffett

The man just pulled a pistol out of his holster, raised it to the VC’s head and shot him in the temple. I made a picture at the same time.

  57. “The whole financial structure of Wall Street seems to rise or fall on the mere fact that the Federal Reserve Bank raises or lowers the amount of interest. Any business that can’t survive a one percent change must be skating on thin ice.

  58. “But we can’t alibi all our ills by just knocking the old banker. First he loaned the money, then the people all at once wanted it back, and he didn’t have it. Now he’s got it again, and is afraid to loan it, so the poor devil don’t know what to do.” ~ Will Rogers

You could create a million jobs doing that.” ~ William J. Clinton
