A lot of people do have good internet, and streaming is all about removing that barrier between "Hey, let's watch X" and actually watching it.

If you need to download it first, you're waiting for a half hour or more to get a good copy. Streaming, it might be rabbit-ear quality, but at least you get start to watching it immediately.

(Time & quality figures are obviously subject to change based on the streaming/download service and your bandwidth).

To get really rich, you must understand the financial market. but you also need an advantage by having a special insight in the market and most importantly politics (as politics define the rules of the game).

I am reminded of the line from a W.C. Fields movie. A guy sits down to play cards with him and asks, "Is this a game of chance?"

Fields answers, "Not the way I play it."

The $100K is clearly the "last $100k", that part should have been obvious, but you choose to be obtuse instead.

So, if you are taxed one dollar out of $1,000,000, you would see that as being taxed for 100% of the last dollar you earned? You are worse than stupid. You are intractably and willfully ignorant.

. You seem to think that a 38% rate is acceptable for ANY level of income.

There is no one in the United States who pays 38% of their income in income tax. Not only do you not understand how marginal tax rates work, but you are intent on maintaining this state of not understanding marginal income tax rates.

Don't feel bad, I won't pay 38% either... You get beyond 1/3 and I'd do whatever it takes to avoid paying it. Frankly below that is worth a lot of effort to avoid.

If you make $100,000, having $38K of it taken away is highway robbery.

You dumb shit. Do you understand how marginal tax rates work? If you make $100,000 and the rate is 33% you do not pay a third of your money in taxes.

It's no goddamn wonder the political system in this country is so fucked up. We've got people voting who don't understand the most basic things about how government works.
