I’d like to introduce you to a man named Greg W. Howard. Greg likes to use Twitter a lot. At the moment he has over 78,000 tweets, the majority of which are about how much he hates blacks, gays, liberals and lazy Mexicans. He is quick to label anything other than unfettered free market capitalism as “socialist”, the strongest insult a conservative can use. He deplores socialised healthcare and all kinds of welfare, well except for the disability checks that he himself lives off.
You see, our pal Greg, the financial advisor filed for bankruptcy on March 23rd 2010.
It really shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone who has the stomach to read some of his tweets. Among his favourite choices for investment are gold (yet to confirm whether purestrain or regular), emergency rations, colloidal silver and ammunition. Bonds are a no-go for Greg-kun, evidently the Obama administration will have totally destroyed the US economy within 5 years. He also predicts a 5,000 point drop in the Dow over the next six months. Considering this apocalyptic, survivalist mindset which is predicated on his borderline psychotic hatred of the black president, it should hardly come as a shock to learn that he cannot adequately control his own meagre finances, let alone those of anyone sufficiently wealthy enough to seek the services of a financial advisor.
A detailed examination of the document reveals that he owes $7,680 in unpaid child support. The amount of cash he has on hand?
Not more than $32
His total credit card debt is $27,506.66 and this man claims to make a living helping other people manage their money.
Special thanks to @TheRealSomebody and @kjlintner for investigating the source and helping break the bankruptcy story.
