    I get the feeling Warren owns motley fool. I happen to know why he closed 2 Dairy Queens in Minnesota. 15 years to life minimum mandatory sentence for cooking both my homes with backscatter x-ray surveillance and don't forget about the psychotronics. Having access to remote neural monitoring / synthetic telepathy/ wireless neurophone tech has definitely give you a competitive edge hasn't it? Yep Warren Buffet is just a dirty old man that made x-ray pornos of me while using psychotronics to screw me out of everything but my soul. He who laughs last you dirty old man. My book is almost ready for publishing. See you in court Warren.
