    Rupert Murderoch isn't about money, he is about supporting his sick agenda.

    The man is a goddamn genius. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
    No risk- no reward.

    You ain't but a pimple on his left nut.

    What is it about people who despise success and revel in the failure of the successful?

    Oh I can't have what he's having, yet I wouldn't want to actually experience such failure...

    No balls, no bounty.

    Grow 'em or get out.

    Why should i be happy that anyone lost that kind of money?

    Your hatred for people who disagree with you is just downright sad.

    Poor guy. I so feel his pain.

    I lost some loose change in my space, too.

    I suspect it's in the couch.

    No big deal. Businesses have deals that haven't worked out everyday. And the bigger the league generally the bigger the dollars involved. So, you cut your loss and move on. That's business.

    I'm sure he can afford it.

    I'm sure it bothers him about as much as it would bother George Soros if he lost a billion.

    Shit. Wish I had a billion to lose.
