I think it's beautiful and I am grateful I get to reap the benefits of being born in America.

Probably just an outgrowth of home country bias.
And with which I agree 100%.

Even if you think that the stock market (Domestic or International) is going to see reduced returns as compared to the 30/50/100 year CAGR averages, what other hands off alternative do you have to invest? Buffet said he's bullish on America and Americans.

America is the greatest country on the face of this planet.
And yes, Warren is certainly an American treasure and is part of my Mt. Rushmore of Investing.

Great video, thanks for posting.

As I travel the world, I've observed US Embassies and the long lines of foreign nationals applying for a US Visa. We must be doing something right :D

I can watch Buffet speak all day and won't be tired of it.
Great sense of humor, abundance of wisdom, great vision and yet so down to earth.

Sorry, no, that's England. Haven't you seen James Bond? ;-)

I don't disagree with the sentiment. Although history teaches one to be very wary of putting people on pedestals. Future generations are very likely either to kick them off that pedestal, or to repurpose the statue by attaching a new head.
