Warren is rubbing our faces in HIS wealth with this op-ed in the NY Times.
Why is Warren America’s nephew? Who did his mother sleep with in Washington?
While I can’t argue with Warren’s numbers and like Facebook he seems unstoppable, there was a time not that long ago that he was washed up. There was a time, that he had no pull with the US government. It was 1998.
I am not friends with Warren, I am friends with Barry who can’t afford the same coverage in the NY Times, but writes better. Barry is Joe the plumber of finance :) , but Joe the Plumber is not cool anymore. Joe is out of style. I don’t want Joe in charge either (no offense Barry).
Warren has got an edge and that edge is information and relationships. He put in the time. In the United States that generally leads to wealth.
You get fined 15 yards for dancing in the endzone and right now Warren has got his Sharpie out signing $1,000 bills and throwing them into an endzone full of insiders and government officials.
I am a fan of the game, but right now he’s an Asshole.
