If I needed life insurance I would maybe purchase a term life policy.

We get that. I mean, you've only said it 10,000 times.


I don't think I've ever said that. But if I did I'm pretty sure it did not even approach 10 times much less 10,000.


PS- that's NOT why Buffett owns insurance companies, but, whatever.


Well, why do you think he owns them if he doesn't expect it to be a winning proposition? As far as I can tell, he thinks they are profitable. And I certainly agree that they are. I would definitely buy stock in one. But I would not hand my money over to them to "invest" for me.

But since I seem to have upset you in some way, perhaps I should just leave the conversation.
