Re: EBR purchased

Well, according to the internet the sale was not approved by the judge. EBR goes back to auction Jan. 14th.

Re: EBR purchased

I think Local Riders should buy them. We will appoint Bannister CEO. You guys can work out all the other positions. I of course will be the long term reliability test rider. I am willing to make such a sacrifice.

Re: EBR purchased

How cool would that be? We'd run the business into the ground within weeks but what a magical few weeks that would be.

Now we only need eleven hundred and twenty four more LocalRiders members to commit to the same.

John
Liquid Assets Partners = my friend since childhood-- Bill
He doesn't want to sell it off either-- he wants to see it up and going again. But wants a partner. Or-- at very least-- someone to by the inventory from him at a profit.
He buys and sells-- he doesn't make stuff-- he's too lazy.
I was up there during the aftermath of Katrina-- buying 4 Chinese scooters. While there-- they got a call. Lowes was taking bids on the lumber inventories in the stores destroyed by the hurricane.
He told his person-- buy it.
Then he told his son to contact FEMA.
20 minutes later -- the Lowes deal was clinched. 10 minutes after that the FEMA deal was clinched at a profit of about 800K.
In less than 40 minutes.
I hate his guts

Re: EBR purchased

It all goes back to the basic fact that you have to have money to make money. Sad but true.

The Midas touch. I know a guy like this. It seemed no matter how crazy a scheme sounded he made money off of it.
