harrysmatical: Absolutely. And let’s not forget that Cuban got his money by creating a bubble company and getting stupid Yahoo to buy it for a ridiculous amount of money. It doesn’t even really exist anymore. He (smartly) rode a stupid bubble caused by free money given out by the fed and has spent the rest of his life coasting and playing owner of the Mavericks. His current ventures are doing about as well as his first in a real world economy.
I’d love to debate him on this issue. I’d hand him his ass. And if he really believes what he wrote about Fountainhead then he doesn’t believe what he wrote in this blog article anyhow.
I too welcome tax time
From MC> Feel free . Any time. You obviously don’t know my history or the histories of the multiple companies i created and sold. I will give you one little secret. I sold a company and retired BEFORE broadcast. And right now, every company I run, but 1 is profitable.
What you’re pushing is enslaving (Yes I mean that term exactly as you read it) those that work hard to those that do not
frightnight: A successful person is successful because they work hard and use their brains and build things that people want.
A successful person has no obligation to the unsuccessful other than to continue to be successful and produce wealth. The side effect of continuing to pursue their own objectives is that they make others wealthy in the process.

You nor anyone else has any right to anyone else’s property unless acquired through free trade with a willing individual. Using the government to condone or otherwise assist in your theft is still theft. You cannot give rights to others that you yourself do not possess. But what it makes you when you do, is a coward. If you really think that you’re entitled to the hard work and wealth of the successful, go take a gun and hold it to their head and take it. But of course you realize that that would be theft and thuggery so you get the government to do it, as if they have some magical right that you yourself don’t possess!
Notably, there is a book that was written about 60 years ago. It confronts your failed morality and demonstrates why it is wrong and immoral. It further demonstrates what the logical and only conclusion to your value payday loans in Arizona system is: Atlas Shrugged.
The more you steal from the successful and hard working, the less they will work. It happened in the Soviet Union, and it’s happening here today. They will simply stop as is morally the right course of action, and then you and your freeloading brothers will sink because you’ve grown up TAKING instead of EARNING.
Mark – well said. More who are successful need to understand responsibility for community and those less fortunate. It gives me a chance to pay my debt to society and gives me the right to complain about politicians…Enjoy the day. Bob
However, I challenge him to respond to my arguments… He uses to pose as straight-arrow,bold,tell-it-like-it-is guy, who doesn’t dodge criticism….
He says capital ,taxed at 15%,should be taxed like income,at 36%. Why doesn’t he do it, right here right now. From MC> where did I say that ? I said carried interest should be taxed as regular income. I also said that there should be taxes on stock transactions.
