  1. Such clever people. If they were young and smooth it woud not work as well
    but they make it seem so scarily believeable. I love the part about naming
    the funds.

  2. As someone just said elsewhere, he was (together with John Bird) a “pillar
    of the anti-establishment”. There have been too many who have gone this
    year who were such nice people. And he was so funny. RIP indeed.

  3. This video sums up perfectly the problem facing #BBRY and why, ultimately,
    the company will fail. I’ve written many pieces about the failure of the
    company to tackle its perception issues and why it will ultimately be its
    undoing. Watch from 1.00 to 1.50.

  4. Alright, so black people are responsible for the economic meltdown. What an
    ignorant sketch. If that was the case then they must have lent a billion
    dollars to every unemployed black man in America. But what do you expect
    from old white men? Certainly not funny though. 

  5. Reallylni, surely you are missing the point. This is not mocking or blaming
    black people, it is being vicious towards capitalism. I’m sad you interpret
    it this way.
