The Saga of Greedville - Number One - Warren Buffett

Introducing the Greedville Players, starting with Warren Buffett.  We will be your tour guides to who they are, what drives them, and how to fight back.

Number One - Warren Buffett 

The warm and friendly face most people saw was an illusion assumed long ago. “They need to trust you, even love you,” his employers had told him. “Make them laugh.”

Making us chuckle disarms us. Warren worked on developing those one liners which bring smiles and inspire, deepening our trust.

Warren Buffett had early learned to become whoever he needed to be. Disguise is part what he always thought of as, 'The Game.'

He learned about selling stock by hanging out at his father's stock brokerage. Chalking in prices on their blackboard, he studied how money was made. At age 11 he bought his first shares.

When he delivered papers in Omaha, Nebraska as a kid his customers loved him. “What a prodigy,” they told each other. He also wrote and sold a tip sheet for horse racing.

When his father was elected to Congress he and a friend bought a used pinball machine for $25, installing it in a barbershop. More pinball machines followed.

Making money fascinated him. Getting people to like and trust him was part of the Game. Opportunities were there, most available if he was trusted and liked.

Hired by the Rothschilds straight out of college in Pennsylvania he understood the stakes, and exactly what he could gain in the biggest game the world would ever see. He succeeded, didn't he?

The story of Warren Buffett and his connections control of our world today. Understanding their Game takes you past illusions into the reality they are living out at our expense.

Now 84, Warren is still playing The Game. He sees tank cars as pinball machines in the Game that is his life. If people mattered to him Buffett would insist on safety. His actions are what you should believe. Buffett knows exactly what he is doing.

 Does anyone doubt today the tank cars in use are deadly to human life?

Risk comes from not knowing what you're doing.” - Warren Buffett

When they blow up Buffet's company collects the insurance and avoids paying for deaths and other damages. Simple, tidy, legal.

Rule No.1: Never lose money. Rule No.2: Never forget rule No.1.”

Buffet has a singular focus in life, making money.

There's class warfare all right, but it's my class, the rich class, that's making war, and we're winning.”

Now, think again.  How do you think Warren Buffett sees us?

Watch for them and understand.

Welcome to the Saga of Greedville, the stories which continue to shape our world, the action driven by those who lack conscience. Psychopaths walk among us learn to recognize them.
