I'm just a little guy

Cassandra says:

There were a couple of interesting points in between the shameless advertising and blanket generalizations, but really this guy is just some rich dude who throws shade from his castle at everyone who isn't or wasn't able to accumulate their own wealth by scheming, scamming or dirt-bagging their way through the system. Kind of a shitty attitude, turned me off from the whole thing.

Erik C says:

A parasite telling us people why he and the rest of the 1% are getting richer, as if we don't already know.
He might think we are stupid.

bikerusl says:

So everyone can be rich if we just use different words. Trump is starting it with gusto. Words become meaningless. Rich = Poor

Very wise man. Again and again deep wisdom is flowing.
It takes ears to hear wisdom. It takes a heart to feel truth/love or untruth.
From his heart is flowing a biiiig amount of unconditional love.
Thanks Robert

Roy Higgins says:

America is a pyramid scheme. Always has been. Just because you have no integrity and like to screw people doesn't mean it is right.

Mr.T Unexpected says:

We are what we think

GabakUSA Free computer training says:

volume too low

Matthew Moselle says:

There's always a singular flaw in these same lectures, that will always trump the point explained by the lecturer. That is, if everyone were to be able to succeed, the way this gentleman explained, based off the information and suggestions given, then we would have a world of entrepreneurs, and no workers. Who would run the businesses, build the product or ship it out, etc. ? You can't keep people poor and oppressed simply because they are the workers and you are the owner/entrepreneur. And don't get me wrong, the owner should always walk away with the bigger slice of the pie, but for Christ fuckin sake, the scales are ridiculously uneven, more and more, every year that goes by. We were doing better in the 70s than we are now. Capitalism was different. It was actually capitalism. The shit going on now is just fuckin immoral and there's a price to be paid for it, by "EVERYONE". It's a handful of short straws and a couple of long straws. That's all there is to it.

Fred Pauser says:

So Mr. Kiyosaki advocates manipulating the system in order to become rich. He is part of the reason that the extreme gap in equality between the rich and everyone else has become so immorally wrong!
