Geez - a big time socialist Dimocrat cheating the market. What a surprise...why can’t they all be honest traders like George Soros?

Don’t see that happen too often.

How did this fool ever become a billionaire?

I must say it gives me great pleasure to see the Mavericks sucking so badly this year.

Is this a serious question? He started broadcast.com and sold it to Yahoo! for $6 billion.

Didn’t the guy start with zero money and because a billionaire? I think he should be praised and not made fun of. I saw him perform on Dancing with Stars and he stated that he gives a lot of money away to charity. Perhaps you just don’t know him. Anyway prayers to him that these charges are just nothing.

I knew he made his billions from the tech-happy days of the 90’s.

Just goes to show... Luck can trump brains a lot of times.

He will get off on the charges.

MSM will say that this is the last gasp of the Bush Administration, trying to “get at” those who supported Mr. O

Marc Cuban = Friend of Barak

Could this be the same Mark Cuban that funded that dumbass movie that was a hit piece on our U.S. Military that also tanked and sank at the box office? Redacted

Mark Cuban is an Ayn Rand follower. He is a Libertarian.

“Mark Cuban is an Ayn Rand follower. He is a Libertarian.”

A libertarian would not be caught dead backing Bloomberg - he was invovlved in Unity08. He has done nothing to show any prediliction for libertarianism but publicly stated he “admired” Ayn Rand.

Admired? Praised? He can kiss my *ss.

It’s bad enough that Mark Cuban produced sympathize-with-the-Islamic-terrorists propaganda like “The War Within” and “Death of a President,” to mention a few, but now it’s the even worse “Redacted.”

E-mail Mark Cuban about his latest production choice. Post notes against this irresponsible movie on his blog. And don’t buy any Dallas Mavericks merchandise.

Well, there are different degrees in any political line of thinking. Sorry you dont approve of his degree.

“Well, there are different degrees in any political line of thinking. Sorry you dont approve of his degree.”

I was expressing disbelief, not disapproval. I don’t really know about about his political idiosyncracies - and, I suspect, neither does he...I do, however, LOATHE his backing of “films” like “Loose Change” that suggests some U.S. government officials may have staged the 9/11 attacks or the insane propaganda of “Redacted” which promoted violence against America.

I guess, technically, the man makes me want to puke.

I think it would be interesting to have him show up to a showing of some of his greatest hits in Oceanside. You know, be there for a Q&A?

I dont pretend to agree with the guy. I just know he's no lefty. He's slimey and crooked by all accounts and I agree with you about his ventures.
