You'd be amazed @ how many brazillionaires there are walking around aventura and bal harbour malls with that kind of cash on them. I'm surprised there aren't more incidents like this

Conservatives say if you don't give the rich more money, they will lose their incentive to invest. As for the poor, they tell us they've lost all incentive because we've given them too much money."

Anyone who shops at Bal Harbour Shops is rich... just look at many of the cars that are parked in Valet.

NT never ceases to amaze. Who the eff cares why someone was carrying $20k? Oh, that's right, they're presumably wealthy and that doesn't go over well with the Obama minions.

that's insane. Maybe that thief was observing that person for a while and noticed them paying cash for the purchases.
