Don’t sell your country’s pride for a few bucks.
Large and profitable newspapers have the ability to drop the cover price of their publications to increase circulation – this, in turn, attracts the advertising bucks and makes them more powerful.
A lot of groups go out, and they make big bucks in a couple of years and they’re gone. I would like a band that’s sustaining.
The one thing I try to do with my business in real estate is try to be as creative as I can, think outside of the box and take advantage of the fortunate platform that I have, and the network I can grow within the city of Milwaukee via the Bucks, or within the Notre Dame network, or being from Boston.
It depends obviously on how the Bucks feel but I’d love – someday – to go over there and play in Ireland. I don’t think they’ve had a ton of NBA players.
The first job I ever had was singing in a jazz club when I was like 15 with my friend, and we earned like 70 bucks. We were like, ‘Oh my God!’
The whole idea behind the EB-5 visa was to help create jobs in economically disadvantaged areas. But where big bucks are involved, corruption soon follows, and with Chuck Schumer and the EB-5 visa program, you need to follow the money.
Let me tell you something… If you’re anybody – not just me, but anybody – and you can put an oven that doesn’t work at all on eBay and sign your name on it and sell it for 1200 bucks, and somebody will drive from Seattle to Dallas, Texas, to get it, that’s pretty cool.
New York reminds me of what my career was like when I lived here, so when I walk through the streets, I remember when I had ten bucks in my pocket and all I could eat is Chipotle.
My breakdancing crew used to go to the mall and squat a piece of cardboard there; we had our jam box, and I’d spin on my head and make about forty bucks a day, which was pretty good back then. I was only 14 years old, so I would chase the girls around the mall and eat some pizza and have some change left over.
For me, my friends, my family, myself, we all grew up as Bucks fans just being in the hometown. I think my friends have converted into Miami Heat fans and I’ve done the same obviously. We’re not too big on Milwaukee anymore.
The Young Bucks are super involved with tag team wrestling in our company.
Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks had never done a show on television, yet they were able to draw a show with 11,000 people to suburban Chicago. Just based on word of mouth and through the love of wrestling they spread.
In 1972 through ’74, right before we hit it big, we were hauling our own equipment into the club and setting up and playing for, I don’t know, a hundred bucks a night.
To shuck oysters, you’ll need an oyster knife, a handy tool with a sturdy handle and a short, rigid blade which you can pick up for about ten bucks in a kitchenware shop or fish market. A quick trip online will yield any number of videos and slide shows with step-by-step instructions on how to shuck an oyster.
Probably my first couple years in the league, I started paying more attention to what I was wearing. Once I got a few bucks in my pocket and I could afford some nice things, and you get to go, ‘OK, let’s try some of these things.’ And once you try something you like, you probably don’t change it much.
I’ve never had much and I’ve never needed much. If I had only two bucks in my pocket, I knew I could spend it because I could always do another show of some kind, even on a sidewalk.
I put a lot of work into my mixtapes, and I want everybody to understand I am doing this genuinely. I don’t even want to be paid for this; I just want you all to hear my music and appreciate it. I think it brings me closer to my fans because they know I’m doing this for them and not just to get the bucks.
I was 9 years old, and this was – well, whenever it was, they paid a thousand bucks. I thought I was going to be rich forever! But I had no thought I would be an actor at that point.
Nowadays, most educated people would just as soon stay home and watch ‘Breaking Bad’ as shell out a hundred bucks to see a Broadway play – assuming that there are any plays on Broadway worth seeing, which long ago ceased to be a safe bet.
I don’t have a trainer. I have what I call ‘the poor man’s workout and the rich man’s diet.’ I run for 1 hour every day and do 500 sit-ups and 1000 crunches, and I lift weights at the Y for 28 bucks a month, even if it’s 3 in the morning.
You can’t push the envelope at 10,000 RPM and expect to come out smelling like a rose and feeling like a million bucks on the other side.
We keep a woman in prison for decade after decade at a cost of $60,000 a year, and then give them $200 when they hit the gates for release. And, adios. People have to get their IDs, Social Security cards. They have to get clothing, housing, apply for benefits and services, and it’s impossible to do with 200 bucks.
People are quick to say with their mouth full, ‘Well, the American farmer is on the dole.’ But a loaf of bread is two bucks when it could be 10 bucks. I know what it is with the government in my business. We would be all for not having government in our business, but we need a fair system.
