    Those two sound like alarmist talking heads. And I'm saying this as a guy who watches Fox News.

    Must be a slow news day.

    Are you kidding? Clemson won the national title, the Market went up 2%, Trumpy Bear is making a speech followed by the two Chucky's (Pelosi and Schumer), Shane is on the Western Channel, etc.

    Sounds like what I've been saying for the last few years. Charlie has little less than a year to meet the 2020 deadline. I don't see him meeting that deadline and doing it to meet the FCC specs for 5G wireless. IF they determine he didn't build out enough to meet their specs , he forfeits all that spectrum back to the government and loses all those billions he has invested in it.

    Billionaires don't get rich by giving their money away. Unless Charlie has lost his mind, I'm betting he has something up his sleeve.

    I don’t think so . I think his luck has just about run out. But we shall see in a year.

    Look, I could be wrong, but again- billionaires don't bank on "luck." They are deliberate and careful. I'm not a Charlie fan boy. I just don't see somebody of his business acumen throwing away his investment and his own income. Especially not at his age.

    I would never, ever get into a betting game with Charlie. Charlie wins the vast majority of his bets.

    Yup, and even the ones he loses, somehow turn into wins for him.
