Every once in a while a buried post will get a comment that is just funny. Unfortunately, because these posts are buried, most of you will never see these comments (I only see them because I receive an email when someone comments). Anyway, here’s one that some guy left in response to a Kiyosaki-bashing post I did several months ago. I know it is crazy of me to entertain this stuff, but this is just too funny:
Wow, this blog is totally one sided, I wonder if the moderator is just canning all the Pro Kiyosaki and only posting the anti-Kiyosaki comments. Typically of closed minded neo nazi people.
Anyway, Kiyosaki is very on the mark, Mutual Funds are not the tools for winning, just playing it safe. I invest in vehicle with average annual returns of 36% or greater. What a waste to put your money into a mutual fund. A mutual fund is a diversified product for the unlearned masses who will not take the time to learn the rules of investing.
Think about that, people who donâ€™t know how to invest put their money into an investement vehicle. What do you think happens. Sure, their money grows, for some, but it sure isnâ€™t a great living. Think of all you that have posted comments, are you financially wealthy? The answer is no, and youâ€™re pissed off that your not so you knock others. Robert has some very good points, and I for one am not a staunch follower of his, but lets face it, he has way more money than you, so he probably know more about how money works than you. The guy at the top is always hated.
By the way, every financial person is required to tell you the same thing, all investments are not guaranteed. Once person commented that one person wanted to win big, so he put all him money into the stock on one internet company and lost it all. What about all the mutual funds that owned stock in those companies. What about all the mutual funds that only owned stock in internet companies. What about them? The government requires all register Reps that sell any investment product to disclose to their clients that their money is not gauranteed, and in fact they could loose it all. Frankly, I donâ€™t think that is a strategy for winning, only for loosing.
So the uneducated masses will by this diversified product and slowly build a few dollars for retirement, and like on social security, while the financially literate will live happily and live the type of lives that they dream of while other pinch pennies and clip coupons in retirement and curse out the government for such a low Social Security check and blame everyone else for their problems, but realize that the problems has always been inside of you!! (evident by this ridiculous blog!)
There’s so much silliness in your comment that I really don’t know where to start.
No, this blog is not one-sided and no I didn’t delete any pro-Kiyosaki comments. There was no need to delete them because THERE WEREN’T ANY! You see, most of the readers of this blog are smart enough to see through Kiyosaki and his mostly-worthless drivel.
The guy at the top is always hated?
Not all guys. What about Warren Buffett?
I invest in vehicle with average annual returns of 36% or greater.
Sure pal. I would love to see proof of your 36% annual rate return.
Your comment makes me laugh because it makes no sense. First you tell us that mutual funds are only for people who want to play it safe. Then, in the very next paragraph you tell us how they are only for losing. It’s really hard to take your comment seriously since it is obvious that you really don’t know what you are trying to say.
I wonder if this guy is the typical Kiyosaki-follower?
