Warren Buffett is a Great Man, after all, he owns the BNSF railroad, which will be hauling coal and coal dust across the state of Washington. He also owns the Tank Car Company, which makes many of the tank cars on his railroad, plus the energy holding company which will profit from the hauling of the coal dust. Yes, the Great Man stood beside President Obama and claimed the rich should pay more taxes, all the while his company has been fighting in federal tax court against paying the billions in taxes owed. The Great Man warned against credit derivatives as economic weapons of mass destruction, all the while paying lobbyists to lobby against any reform of those credit derivatives in the Dodd-Frank Act. Yes, a Great Man indeed!
