Warren Buffet is a brilliant businessman but it appears he is also massively out of touch.
While interviewing with Bloomberg, this is what the Oracle of Omaha had to say:
“You want everybody educated to their potential. You want people to reach their potential. That still won’t work for some people in a highly developed market system.
I mean if this were a sports-based system, you could give me a PhD in football, and I could practice eight hours a day, and I might be able to carry the water from, not onto the field, but from the locker room to the bench. There’s just some people don’t fit well into a highly skilled market-based economy.
They’re perfectly decent citizens. We’ll send them off to Afghanistan, but they are not going to command a big price.”
First of all Warren, our servicemen and women ARE some of the most highly skilled and intelligent individuals in the nation. They prove it every day by outsmarting and outworking people from every walk of life that are trying to harm or kill us.
Not only that but these “decent” citizens who deploy to Afghanistan are the ones fighting so that you can live a comfortable life and make your billions.
We DEMAND Warren Buffet apologize to all members of our armed forces! Let us know in the comments the best way we can pressure him to do so!!
