Thanks for the info, Don. After reading this, I turned on CNN, expecting information, but instead the interviewer of Donald Trump is asking him what "the Trump doctrine" is. Save us all.

April 7, 2011

I watched that Trump interview. It is astounding how far this country has sunk. And he now has 17% of the Republican presidential polling numbers, according to at least one poll. Best, Don Bauder

An earthquake has hit Brandes too...ex-wife can't live on $500,000 a month...wants $750,000 a month plus $140 million more in addition to the RSF home, Del Mar Beach house, Manhattan Penthouse, and condos in Utah. Amazing all this greediness when people are starving in this economy.

April 7, 2011

Yes, Brandes's wife number two wants a big payoff. That's one disadvantage of being in the Forbes 400. Best, Don Bauder

If you have that much $$$ and do not get a pre-nup then you deserve to lose everything.

Trump has had pre-nups with ALL of his wives.

The biggest cases in family law are welathy men marrying gold diggers with no pre-nup (Paul McCartney, Seward Johnson, Anna Nicole Smith, Brandes. etc)

Don, Can you believe the greed level?? If this doesn't paint a picture of what it is like to work there, nothing does.

As they rise higher and higher, greed levels no longer surprise or shock me. Best, Don Bauder

California is loaded with gold-diggers, too. I grew up a Midwesterner like you and girls would ask what I like to do and about my family. In California, they ask "What do you drive?" and "How much money do you make?" Just all the wrong values. Read the article in the Union Tribune..as a condition of marriage, his 2nd wife stated, "He had to fix his nose, improve his wardrobe and get ambitious to work longer hours." He was making $181,000 in 1986 and she basically made it seem like he was a loser. Why marry her? No love there. Peace.

When I was in high school or college in the midwest, my father, a stockbroker, bought me 100,000 shares of Oklahoma Oil Co. Trouble is, the stock cost less than a penny a share. When I met young ladies at the university, I would drop the fact that I owned 100,000 shares of Oklahoma Oil Co. None was impressed. Of course, the women have always found other reasons not to be impressed by me. Best, Don Bauder

April 8, 2011

Don, tell us more! What happened to Oklahoma Oil? Did the share price ever get up to ten cents? Was that the start to your family fortune? This is a whole facet to the Don Bauder story we've never seen. Your commentators are waiting for the "rest of the story."

April 9, 2011

Actually, when the price of oil soared 3 and 4 decades ago, and there was all the emphasis on domestic production, Oklahoma Oil tried to get going again. My mother and I turned in all our shares. I assume my brother turned in his, too. Alas, the company quickly plunged into BK (7) and we all wound up with a big fat zero. Incidentally, it wasn't terribly important to us, because in the process of turning in our shares, I talked with one of the executives, and concluded that the company's chances of success were exceedingly slim, despite his glowing optimism. We didn't even follow what happened until several years later, when I checked it out. Best, Don Bauder

Oklahoma Oil Co.

OK, the ONLY reason I am going to comment on this is because one of the BEST TV comedies of ALL time was the "Beverly Hill Billies".

on the BHB they NEVER sated in the show where the BHB came from, where their cabin was when they found oil on their property, and the audience was left to guess. It was left out on purpose by the shows ceater, Paul Henning, who wanted everyone to think it could have been any mid-western location, but they DID name the oil company that bought the rights to the Clampett's oil, it was the "OK Oil Company"!!!!!

I had no idea there was actually a real company with that name.

April 10, 2011

They aren't necessarily the same company. There could be an OK Oil Co. and an Oklahoma Oil Co. Remember, this stock was purchased half a century before every state was given a two-letter designation. Best, Don Bauder

April 10, 2011

Don, Don't feel bad. Brandes bought Countrywide, WaMu, Fannie Mae, McClatchey, Lehman, etc...etc.....even the so-called "brilliant" investors eventually go bust in this rigged Stock Market.

April 10, 2011

The market is rigged by the Federal Reserve, as well as other central banks around the world. Everybody looks brilliant when stocks are floating on liquidity. But the really brilliant ones are those who know when to get out. And they won't really "know" when to get out. They will guess. Best, Don Bauder

Don, Only thing is, you don't get to celebrate $10 million halloween parties every year!!!

April 10, 2011

It sounds like you don't get invited to those Beautiful People soirees. Best, Don Bauder

April 11, 2011

Don, You are missing out on the whole Brandes saga. The Union Tribune had a FRONT PAGE story on their insane divorce. Do you realize that as of 12/31/10, $26 million has been spent on attorney fees? Sad thing is that all of that money came from investors who are getting sacked with Mercedes fees for lackluster performance. You need an updated story. You were the ONLY one that brought them in the media until now. Please run an update!

Thanks COLT
