Warren Buffett, The Hypocrite Exposed

While Warren Buffet continues with his blatherings of  “The rich need to pay more”, I received a very interesting plea for help concerning one of his employees who he is apparently willing to simply let  unravel.  This just entered my inbox:

Not sure if you can help me or if you would even want to touch this issue. One of my coworker’s  husband, is going to be losing his job on Oct 3rd. He was diagnosed with sarcoma, almost 6 months ago, in his shoulder. Over the past 6 months, he has endured multiple rounds of chemo to reduce the tumor. We had hopes that he would not have to lose his arm, shoulder, his clavicle, and scapulae. He has lost that fight and will be undergoing surgery to remove these parts on Sept 27th. The reason I am contacting you is, Gary <last name withheld until he contacts CryLiberty directly with permission to print>>, has worked for Cerro Flow Products LLC, a company owned by Berkshire Hathaway, or Warren Buffett, for 39 years. Gary received a 6 month period to hold his job. His 6 months is up on Oct 3rd. Gary wanted to return to work for 2 weeks to be able to hold his job, until after his surgery. He was told by HR, that he was a health risk and safety risk. His response was, “because I have cancer?” This man has been loyal to this company for 39 years and they are pushing him out the door. The type of work he performs does not require him to have all of his extremities. He is in a position of troubleshooting. My friend, Karla <Gary’s wife>, will be getting me the specifics of his position, so I have all the information. I wrote to Warren Buffett to bring this terrible injustice to his attention. I did not want to put this out there until I gave him some time to respond. I believe Mr. Buffett had zero knowledge of this and I was counting on him being a compassionate man who would appreciate an employee that has served his company for 39 years. I thought that someone like Mr. Buffett, who has been flapping his mouth about how he needed to pay more in taxes, would think he needed to stand behind this employee. I totally would understand if Gary was unable to complete his work due to he illness. But, Gary, is not losing his brain, only one quarter of his body. He will not need physical therapy, as there is nothing left to therapy. He will only undergo occupational therapy to learn how to function without one arm. As I said, I don’t know if you would want to help, or even if you can help. But, I feel if we can get it on the airwaves and Mr. Buffett hears about it, maybe he can make a difference. If Gary doesn’t keep his job, he is going to have to go on disability. This is not the type of man that wants to sit back and do nothing. He is willing to work hard to keep working. Please help me to help him do this. When I wrote the letter to Warren Buffett, I have no way of knowing if he even received it. I did leave him my number and address, but I have heard nothing.

Thanks for listening.

I believe the woman who sent me this did give fair time for Mr. Buffett to respond.  What an injustice.  Mr. Buffett has a net-worth of $62 Billion.  Billion!  Who in the world needs that much money?  Mr Buffett could put his money where his mouth is, pay off half of that to the National Debt, and still live comfortably. . .and help this poor man and his family keep his job, as well as his life, and even then still live comfortably.

Buffet, Chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway, the largest financial contributor to Planned Parenthood via The Buffet Foundation, announced in June 2003 that Berkshire Hathaway would cease Planned Parenthood Contributions after Pampered Chef (purchased by Berkshire Hathaway in 2002) Representatives launched a word-of-mouth boycott of their own company to solidify their pro-life stance versus the billionaire’s contributions to the abortion-happy clinics.  Since then, money had been funneled to Planned Parenthood through the Buffet Foundation, Chaired by Buffett’s daughter, Susie Buffett.

Contributions to Planned Parenthood, upon the Obama supporter’s death, will likely increase, as he has purportedly changed his will to contribute 80-85% of his estate to the Gates Foundation, also a huge Planned Parenthood Contributor. . .to which Bill Gates served as Board Member for.

So, it seems while Mr. Buffett speaks out of one side of his mouth, his hand signing the checks are saying quite the contrary.  You can not speak of nobility when you contribute to the premeditated homicide of an unborn human being, nor can you call on others to stand up and do the right thing when you turn a blind eye to a dedicated employee being discriminated against due to health conditions.  You, sir, are a hypocrite.

In the mean time, I lift Gary and his family up in prayer, that the Lord may Bless them and Keep them, that He may look upon them with Grace, and that he would smile upon them.  I ask for healing, protection, and joy over them Lord. Amen.

    Thank you so much for your help. I am hopeful that Mr. Buffett will hear about this injustice and he will take action. Gary and Karla are wonderful people and deserve better.

    Anyone who believes Buffet cares about anything but his bottom line is delusional. Buffet is a typically selfish, manipulative rich guy who is not immune to using others to attain his goals. No one attains billions of dollars without being totally inamoured with wealth. His lack of compassion for anyone but himself is evident in Lori’s story, and proves the inadvisability of total alleigance to corporate empires. Small corporations are more likely to take care of their employees.

    “Mr Buffett could put his money where his mouth is, pay off half of that to the National Debt” ???

    The National debt is the accumulated deficit and its in Trillion my friend (15 Trillions), Buffet’s entire wealth would cover a few days of deficit.
    and about .0043% of the debt. There is no way this debt will be paid any time soon unless we stop spending to day what we may earn tomorrow.

    Buffet manages this money he does not spend it or keep it in his house.
    If you wish to do as well as he does simply buy the shares of his public company and you will have the exact same proportional result.

    Strange how some people dislike profits but don’t mind trillions of unaccountable Government waste. Follow that money instead and you will understand what is really going on.
