  1. why do american women have such a high, annoying, penetrating, animal like voices?
    It gives me so much me so much stress for some reason

  2. Cuban u r flat stupid. Listening to u is a waste of time. Just be honest and admit to only achievement – u got lucky. Doesn't make u a speaker. Can't imagine any media interviewing u if not for the PR firm u have on a retainer.

  3. That is a slightly moronic comment from Cuban, especially coming from a IU Business school graduate. I don't think Cuban gave that question much deliberation. Getting a business loan, especially on structured at favorable rates or deferring payments like a zero-coupon bond, might often be far superior solution to finance the purchase of a business without giving up ownership or control or both. You can get creative finding the right CPA's firm and perhaps inquiring among larger foundations that have cash on hand seeking higher yields than US Treasuries or preferred stock currently offer investors.

  4. Please…..this fucking doushebags!!!! Another lucky Doushe who needed friends to help him out and happened to be at the right place at the right time, his fucking advice is worthless and he's a fucking lying dickhead!!!!! Research his history!!!! FRIENDS LOANED YOU MONEY!!!!!!!

    ……..('(…´…´…. ¯~/'…')
    ……….''…………. _.·´
    Warned you.

  6. WHY ON EARTH               In 1913, would Congress hand over its constitutional authority to print our U.S. dollar to a private bank? Well, that private bank is called the Federal Reserve. And its 100 percent shareholders -owner- are just a few private banks ran by Jewish People specifically. 

    (LOL meaning since 1913 Jews in our country have had uncontrollable amount of power. Truly does explain how Jewish organizations such as AIPAC have such great influence in our politics today)

  7. 3m just took all your earnings plus any future earnings cause you used their copyright logo to advertise your Capital in your business. #1 tip for running a business is to be original and don't get caught with your pants down like you just did.

  8. I'm gonna make an app that give you a small loan of a million dollars every time you click a button but you have to wait 2 years to click it again

  9. Really? Fascinating points? Not when you have someone to bail you out. AIG and other firms. It does not matter if you ask for a loan, nowadays there is money for nothing, you get the money for free at almost at zero interest and if you don't pay you get a ding in you credit. I don't find anything wrong? he says. really dude. I mean it is call the Greenspan and Bernanke "PUTS" Go ahead and fail I will bail you out. Cuban is Smart, oh yeah, so are these who have taken advantage of the American Tax payer.

  10. but didn't your friend give u $15,000 loan to open up your bar back in the day? I can't stand ppl like this. don't forget where the fuck you came from. you're the moron for even trying to attempt to give advice on something you actually did

  11. look he obivously doesnt know the difference between loans and stock ownership (investors money). In the long run getting a bank loan or a government SBA loan is much better than giving away a large part of your ownership. I suggest mark cuban take a business class in financial management…… again.
