The only thing more ridiculous than buying luxury is buying luxury automobiles. I bet most people buying these cars never expect to pay off their mortgage. Enjoy working until your 70. At least you'll have a luxuriously frustrating commute twice a day for the next few decades!

I love that people work hard and take risks but this is a little excessive "Matt Hlavin, an entrepreneur in Cleveland who owns seven businesses, mostly in manufacturing, bought three Mercedeses last year: a $237,000 SLS AMG and a $165,000 S63 AMG for him, and a $97,000 GL550 sport-utility vehicle for his wife." I don't want to hear another person EVER say that the wealthy can't pay more in taxes. I know for a fact that I can and, probably should, pay more in taxes. And no I won't pay more until I'm required - it's the American way.

I wonder how many of the people who are blowing $150,000+ on a single car believe they are "fiscal conservatives"?
