So you're saying that Warren Buffett, the most revered/celebrated investor in the world, is--because he invests in several insurance companies--by association as crooked as the insurance companies he invests in. (Assuming that you won't invest with an insurance company because you think they're somehow nefarious.)

No, what I said was that Warren Buffett invested in insurance companies.

The parts about

(1) trying to compare customers who buy investments* from insurance companies to Warren Buffett's investments in insurance companies,
(2) attempting to cast aspersions on Warren Buffett, and
(3) demeaning insurance companies by attempting to attribute sayings that I have never said to me

are all from your $@# mind.
