Now I feel dirty. Why does a new year always have to start like that...
Mr T. on Gold was better: http://www.bloomberg.com/video/63695708-mr-t-interview-on-gold.html
Please put me out of my misery, is it a spoof ?
John ? are you lost for words !
All the best
Too funny. You're up, what, 30% on the HLF investment so far? Well done.
You couldn't make this stuff up.
Her credibility is completely shot. I hope the greenbacks were worth it.
Wow she does have "cojones."
PURVEYORS OF DEMOCRACY!
“There is a special place in hell for women who don't help other women." Madeleine Albright
Makes me sick. Comes across as saying that women in third world countries are better off consuming herbalife as opposed to fresh fruits and vegetables.
What's the angle here? Paid spokesperson, lobbyist or equity owner?
Obviously, US government pensions leave something to be desired.
Nothing a former politican does in the commercial world ever looks pretty.
If she is the best celebrity endorsement they can find they are in a lot of trouble.
Couldnt they get Paris Hilton?
Have you guys actually READ the Ackman presentation? This company is a scam, it's so damn obvious. Good luck to your poor clients...
FYI- Herbalife`s Distributor Bonus Award Pays over $36 Million to Independent Business People including Albright- http://www.reuters.com/article/2009/03/23/idUS40657+23-Mar-2009+BW20090323
Al Haig set the tone long ago for retired Sec of Stateers and stock promotions. And promotors are everywhere.
you guys can knock Albright all you want, but she's one of my best ever recruits -- not that she moves much product, but she's brilliant at recruiting those third world girls
I was shocked. She was responsible for America's foreign policy. Imagine arguing Herbalife shakes are a good way for people in rich countries to lose weight and a nutrition supplement for people in poor countries who can't afford to eat enough. Was it this quality of argument that got them into Iraq?
Oh, and Herbalife are spreading democracy as well.
Proof that Herbalife is a sustainable pyramid scheme:
But Mr. Ackman, Herbalife Is A Sustainable Pyramid Scheme"
“I would think that it must be a trade – this silly company was never anything but. I’m telling you, I could stuff a square of ex-lax into a pop-tart and make a better weight loss drug. This thing is turning into an ugly bar brawl over a $5 whore of a stock.”
