Buffett tells the truth about how many of the wealthiest Americans pay lower taxes than those further down on the socioeconomic ladder. Contrast this with Schiff’s moronic claims that, for example, if taxes go up on high income earners he’ll move his business out of the country. First, he was working in the industry during the Clinton years, so apparently higher taxes then weren’t enough to send him overseas, and second, if he goes, it’s a huge bonus for everyone with a brain and/or heart.

Emmy-Winning Composer, Peter Buffett, Donates Song To V-Day
New York, NY (PRWEB) April 7, 2008
Peter Buffett, an Emmy-winning composer and musician, is pleased to announce the donation of his song, “Can We Love?” to V TO THE TENTH, the 10th anniversary of V-Day taking place in New Orleans on April 12 at the New Orleans Arena. Mr. Buffett will perform the song live at the event, and free downloads of the track will be offered online at http://www.vday.org and other leading portals in the weeks surrounding the star-studded celebration, which features Oprah Winfrey, Jane Fonda and musical performances by Faith Hill, Jennifer Hudson, and Charmaine Neville.
“This song reminds me of my own ideals during the civil rights era. I’m proud to see my son doing what he does best for this cause,” said Warren Buffett.
“Peter Buffett’s song, ‘Can We Love?’ is a call to men everywhere to honor women and to end the violence against us. It is a call to honor what is tender in men, what is vulnerable and true,” said V-Day Founder/Playwright Eve Ensler.
At the request of Eve Ensler, Peter Buffett sang “Can We Love?” especially “V-mixed” for a recent gala 10th anniversary celebration in New York. He introduced the song by saying, “We are here because of the power of one woman’s voice. But it’s not just because Eve has the courage to speak for others, but because she gives others the courage to speak. I hope that by the end of this song all the men in the room are singing along with me. If men’s voices can be brought into this movement, we can begin to turn some of these monologues into dialogues.”

For the latest Peter Schiff, go to PeterSchiffBlog.com – Why does Warren Buffett support all of the spending by the federal government? Buffett apparently thinks that going deeper into debt is a good way to get out of debt. He’s right when he says that there is a lot of inflation in our future. But then he supports the policies that bring about that very inflation. The time to put on the brakes is long past. We are unfortunately going to have to take the pain. The inflation is a big deal right here, right now. By the time Obama runs for reelection in 2012, the price of oil will most likely be above 0. There isn’t any inflation showing up in producer prices, but that is like looking in the rear view mirror. The money supply has increased, and that money will show up in the economy. Our economy is being debased, and Warren Buffett is applauding the government for doing it. There is much hope to have by allowing a free market economy. The American people have lost a war, but we can still rebuild.
On June 2, 2010 Warren Buffett testified at a hearing before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission. Commission member Peter Wallison asked Buffett several good questions and got very good answers. I copied that portion of the C-SPAN video that has those questions and answers. I hope you find it interesting.
