    This is one thing so few people accurately point out about Mark Cuban.

    Broadcast.com was sold at the absolute pinacle of the late 90′s valuations for hot properties and, admittedly, was a fantastic concept. He took cash for it from Yahoo, not stock, and rode into the sunset.

    The property was so badly misused and abused by Yahoo that the domain is now a redirect to Yahoo itself.

    Fortune magazine rated it as 2nd on the “5 worst internet deals of all time.

    “Yahoo executives got way ahead of themselves in acquiring Broadcast.com, an online television site founded by Mark Cuban, for $5.7 billion in 1999. Slow dial-up connections made watching video a test of patience as did the laughably meager library of shows (think 1960-era monster movies and Victoria’s Secret fashion shows). The service soon disappeared, as did the executives who engineered the deal.”

    I give nothing but kudos to someone on the selling side of that transaction but what’s his second act been in business life?

    There hasn’t been one. Running the Mavericks doesn’t count.

    I suppose that’s better than boffing his employees in the bedroom next to his office.

    I know this is a love him or hate him forum. I know Trump creates passionate or vehement opinions of him.

    However, has any other politician in your lifetime ever had so many of the right enemies hating him for the right reasons?

    I’m sorry but that really is funny. I don’t care who you are.

    Yeah every single person here is familiar with Operation Chaos.

    However if you think the D base is going to “waste” their primary vote between Hildabeast and the Bern crossing over you’re misguided.

    The left has their own problems.

    I heard news on his tax returns that his Senate salary is in the $180k range and he grossed over $2.5 million mostly from “book royalties”.

    Sounds like a lot of bulk purchases sitting in a warehouse to me because honestly, I never heard of his book.

    The 1960 is one of the most contested elections in hindsight.

    Two things come immediately to mind; how Chicago basically sent JFK to the White House and do we really need to elaborate on what Chicago politics mean?

    The much discussed debate between Nixon and JFK. The radio audience thought Nixon won, the TV audience thought JFK won. It later turned out that Nixon was ill, how so is a matter of contention, and that showed on TV. Also, Kennedy was heavily made up.

    With that the future of style vs. substance was born.

    Just so you know….

    Alpha is the first letter of the Greek alphabet, Omega is the last letter of the Greek alphabet. The phrase alpha and the omega is the equivalent of A-Z. Though the intent is the beginning and the end.

    Zeta is the sixth letter of the Greek alphabet. Of course you knew that, right? So really, your “insult” is actually funny, it shows off your ignorance in crystal clear terms.

    I’m sorry but if God chose a candidate he wouldn’t be running third. God doesn’t work that way.

    Just out of curiosity, and posterity, would you kindly post your Wharton School MBA diploma?

    Thank you in advance.

    Empty brain, fat cheeks, corrupt family and clueless demeanor.

    These are two things I’ve absolutely, positively said to women I’ve been talking to or dated that stopped things dead in their tracks.

    W- “I’m allergic to cats.” Me- “That’s too bad, the cat stays.”

    W- “I wouldn’t go out with a guy that owned guns.” Me- “Not a problem, goodbye.”

    Obligatory… “He din do ’nuffin.” & “If Obama had a son.”

    Here’s the thing, they’re kids. STFU about the EBT account.

    What happens more often than not is adults claim any kid living in their house as a dependent then get benefits bumped as a result. When the 1st of the month hits they’re frequently selling the EBT benefits for 50 cents on the dollar for cash. You can figure out what they do with the cash.

    The kids then don’t get fed. I’ve seen this over and over again. They try and survive any way they can while the adults in their life are literally taking food money away from them.

    As long as those 17 milkshakes don’t get passed along to Glenn Beck. He sure doesn’t need them these days.

    Media WHORE.
    Media HOOKER.
    Bought on the CHEAP.

    BIMBO? The way she presents herself in short skirts and low cut tops for more magazine covers than can be counted on your fingers? Subjective.

    How is BLONDE sexist? Is she not BLONDE? Perhaps only her, her husband and hairdresser know.

    GG.

    I would definitely be a patron of that place. Though in such close quarters I would have hoped 2 guys could have gone 2 for 2.

    You’re correct about this.

    Gen Xers were still on the tail end of having to sneak around a Playboy or Penthouse. A select few had one or two VHS or Betamax porns that kept rotating through a circle of friends and that was about it.

    I can’t imagine trying to shelter kids or teenagers with smartphones, tablets and PC’s from porn. No filter in the world can overcome a fly by night or many proxy sites. There are no parental controls for stopping the flow of searched for or desired content. Where there is a will there are 100 ways for a determined teenager to get what they seek.

    Lastly with the 20 year disappearance of music videos from MTV, MTV 2 and VH1 you would be absolutely shocked with what artists put on YouTube that you’ll never see on cable. Frequent comments are, wow, this porn has a really good soundtrack.
