Jeff Matthews is WRONG! There is NO disclosure issue at Overstock.

There is no disclosure issue at Overstock.Com.

Patrick is the most transparent CEO in North America.

You can see right through him.

Patrick and his pause that refreshes - he gets advice from THE CLASH

Elevator! Going up!
In the gleaming corridors of the 51st floor
The money can be made if you really want some more
Executive decision-a clinical precision
Jumping from the windows-filled with indecision
I get good advice from the advertising world
Treat me nice says the party girl
Koke adds life where there isn't any
So freeze, man, freeze
It's the pause that refreshes in the corridors of power
When top men need a top up long before the happy hour
Your snakeskin suit and your alligator boot
You won't need a launderette, you can send them to the vet!
I get my advice from the advertising world
Treat me nice says the party girl
Koke adds life where there isn't any
So freeze, man, freeze
Koka Kola advertising and kokaine
Strolling down the Broadway in the rain
Neon light sign says it
I read it in the paper-they're crazy!
Suit your life, maybe so
In the White House-I know
All Over Berlin (they've been doing it for years)
And in Manhattan!
Coming through the door is a snub nose 44
What the barrel can't snort it can spatter on the floor
Your eyeballs feel like pinballs
And your tongue feels like a fish
You're leaping from the windows-saying don't
Ayaiiiiirrrghhh! *@!!*@!!*!
Don't give me none of this!
I get good advice from the advertising world
Treat me nice says the party girl
Koke adds life where there isn't any
So freeze, man, freeze
Hit the deck!

I am reading "Death in a fishbowl"

About my darling Stormy who, according to this book, was never an exotic dancer...

It tells me that the Salt Lake City Police Department Homicide Squad have a t-shirt. On that shirt is a sketch of a skull wearing a SLCPD baseball cap and dark sunglasses.

The caption.

SLCPD Homicide Squad: Our day begins when your ends.

Overstock.Com's day will end too - and I will give prizes (a lifetime supply of evil) for the person that comes up with the best t-shirt.

Your friendly (malevolent) Sith Lord

The Sith Lord explains the problem of evil

“Am I willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then I am impotent.

Am I able, but not willing?

Then I am malevolent.

Am I both able and willing? Whence then is evil?”

Ok - guys - malevolent is right.

The problem of evil

Is that it happens to someone else.

The Master Manipulator can fix this.

Leave your email address and evil can happen to you too!

The Sith Lord accepts a short squeeze

Stock up 10%. I am long now. When it goes down again I will be short.

There are certain advantages to being a master manipulator.

Come back Stormy.

The Sith Lord organizes a hurricane

I came up a bit short on Stinger missiles so I organized a big, warm, wet wind.

I haven't managed to blow Patrick away yet.

Come back for the real storms, Stormy.

Patrick Byrne already owns 100% of overstock

See this quote:

If so - all he needs to do is insist on delivery. The shares will have to be delivered by brokers. If they are not he can just sue the brokers.

Q. Let's be honest. You know more than one billionaire, and you say that you, family, and friends already own an enormous piece of Overstock. Why not just avoid the hassles of the public market, give shareholders the $77-ish per share that your lawsuit suggests the stock is worth, and take it private?

A. We did. About 100% of the shares are owned by family, friends, and a handful of institutions (I don't know for sure). The problem is, there exists an additional 3%-70% of the company in electronically counterfeited shares scattered throughout the system. Why pay to buy up counterfeit shares?


Now the Sith Lord wants to know why he is suing my underlings? Why not just sue Merrills or Morgan?

Or maybe Merrills and Morgan are the Master Manipulators - the initials are the same. Get it?

Sith Lord

The Sith Lord likes Novastar

Nah - SUPERNOVA FINANCIAL. That will create the best bang since the big one.

Might even scare MR B.
