Come on now, you really don't believe that average people live off their winnings from horse races do you?

Hi AB,

You're putting words in my mouth. Nowhere did I say "average people" can make a living doing that. No more so that average people can play in the NBA. Only the best of the best can do so.

Rich people play the ponies. It's a game that rich people play.

I don't think you have any facts to back that up. The track attracts all kinds... believe me. Rich, middle class, poor.

Judging from your favorite stocks, I would say you are a gambler: EBAY CREE QCOM wait a minute, CREE? a company that has a PSR of almost 8x and has been losing millions of dollars; now that is a sign of a gamlber.

Thanks for selectively leaving out Berkshire, PG, BUD, STZ, and MSFT.

The merit of individual stocks is another discussion entirely. I invite you to check out our extremely active Cree board, which is chock full of intelligent bulls and bears engaged in civil conversation about the future of the company:
