I don't mind people are getting richer but there is something wrong when people are just sitting around in their a$$ and getting rich with printed money.

He's referring to individuals taking advantage of the Fed's loose monetary policy.

I thought he printed cheques. That was a good movie BTW. It wouldn't work these days since they can easily check if there's money in the account and would immediately alert the person or company before issuing the funds.

The COL has also gone up by a lot so...

On the bright side, if you wait on tables long enough, you'll get a Ferrari like Buffet and maybe the blond too.

While it makes for a good (fake) story, why burden a waiter with the tax bill and hassle of selling the car that he won't be able to afford to drive? Just cut a check.

But alas, I'm likely pondering the specifics of a clickbait story.

It's obviously a fake story - like a YouTube TV show. But the chick is real ... err ... I mean natural.

If I were to win a $350K Ferrari, I would have to come up with $148,750 in taxes before I could even take delivery.

This is why people on shows like the Price is Right come home with next to nothing since they can't afford to pay the taxes on their showcase winning.

There's a saying that's relevant here.

Every 60 seconds, someone gets hit by a car... That guy must have one hell of a hospital bill!

The point is "the wealthy" isn't a closed loop of people. People are constantly becoming wealthy; while others are losing their wealth. It's silly to think this is a static group of individuals.

I don’t blame you guys for not clicking on the clickbait, but she doesn’t actually gift him the Ferrari, it’s a rental. So he got a “driving experience”.

Once you realize time always wins and even the most current, fastest, most exclusive, limited Ferrari will too get old, you’ll be less worried about what “they” are buying. I recall when the Gallardo was introduced and changed the proverbial game a bit. I see them online today and Toyota’s look more appealing and the only thing that’s changed was time and my perception of value related to the Lambo.
