Hedge fund whiz Andrew Lahde lashes out while cashing in

By Josh Friedman, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
October 18, 2008

Andrew Lahde, the Santa Monica hedge fund manager who shot to fame with an 870% gain last year by betting on the subprime mortgage collapse, has left the building -- with a bang.

Lahde, 37, who closed his operations last month citing the risk of trading with teetering banks, said goodbye Friday to his clients and good riddance to the investment world with a stinging, widely circulated letter skewering "idiot" traders, the U.S. government and marijuana laws.

"I was in this game for the money," Lahde wrote in the two-page missive, saying he would now focus on his personal portfolio of unspecified millions. "The low-hanging fruit, i.e. idiots whose parents paid for prep school, Yale and then the Harvard MBA, was there for the taking. These people who were (often) truly not worthy of the education they received (or supposedly received) rose to the top of companies such as AIG, Bear Stearns and Lehman Bros. and all levels of our government.

"All of this behavior supporting the Aristocracy only ended up making it easier for me to find people stupid enough to take the other side of my trades. God bless America."

Clearly I emailed and also called Ralph Nader first to fill him in once again

I will post this email in several blogs beginning with this one first
because I expect my words will go "poof" just like Chucky Leblanc and Garth Turner and a host of others make certain that they do in nearly every other blog. Danny Boy is not a fan of mine and he doesn't get many more readers that I do but at least he is ethical enough to allow my words to stand the test of time.

I called the Baldwin people as well for shits and giggles and got the predictable response from self serving biblepounders. Now lets see if Mr Obama and Mr. Keyes will have a sudden fit of Integrity after I call certain supporters of theirs and become as serious as a heart attack.

If anyone wants to piss off a Neo Con biblepounder just contact them
and mention my name

Most Canadians will have no idea what I am talking about but the
Yankees Obama and Keyes certainly do. I will lay odds that Keyes
remembers me from Boston just before I went home to run for a seat in the 38th Parliament.

The question is do the media people of his new party know how to read the blogs before he embarasses the Hell out of them EH Danny Boy?

I certainly do and almost died laughing thinking of who I may call
first but Chucky Baldwin is near the top of the list. the devil in me considers this little legal dispute manna from Keyes' purported

Subject: [Censurer General] New comment on Irving co. and Atlantican

David Raymond Amos has left a new comment on the post "Irving co. and
Atlantican responsibilities":

For the Record I sent Obama and his opponent Allan Keyes Hard
Copy of my material in early 2004 long before most folks ever even
heard of Obama. Methinks that he used the materail to become the
keynote speaker at the Democrats convention in Beantown in July of
2004. Rest assured John McCain knows it, he was dumb enough to put it in writing.

The proof of the pudding is here.

At least Obama's computer is more ethical than McCain's EH?
