Proudly supporting the deep state...


?

So in order to be "against the deep state" we must be angry at successful people?


Im not mad or angry at successful people. This thread is about one person and one person only..

Oh, please. At least be honest about it. If Bezos wasn't so wealthy, you wouldn't care. You've said as much.

I don't think Bezos is the 'Deep State'. I do think that the deep state may be making use of him and others. His contract with the CIA in 2013 possibly provides the conduit for them. So at this time he is simply a useful tool.

Money is not power...secret knowledge is power. The deep state simply has the power, they simply make use of others money unbeknownst to the manipulated and deceived. This does not make one party to the deep state, they are simply an unknowing victim of circumstance.

No. But I think you should be angry at "the deep state" ..

Would you consider Bezos "deep state"? Do you believe in the "deep state"?

If you do then who do you think that is?



I see enablers who want to carry out socialist policies of the previous administration.

I guess those are deep state.

But I still don't see how even that would justify taking away his money.


I dont want to take away his money I never said that..

I said every now and then people should shop local I didnt even say dont shop at Amazon.

Yeah, you were so concerned you didn't even put it in the Original Post. You're just shifting the goalposts now.

Does anyone else have a problem with this?

No.



What a greedy piece of shi/ He makes his employees average yearly salary in 10 seconds.

Right, he's a greed piece of sh*t because he had a good idea, brought it through fruition, and consumers embraced the business model and convenience.

Gee, what an ass.


I have a small retail store and we sell a variety of stuff from electronics to clothes and sports memorabilia.

I am sick of hearing "I can get that on Amazon for 20 or 8 or 40 or wtf ever lol. "

And that's reason to act childish and call a guy names because he's more successful that you and has a better business model? No offense intended, seriously--I have plenty of friends and acquaintances whose small businesses I frequent--but you seriously have some jealousy issues or something going on here.

Where I live, we have many Amazon fulfillment centers, so many, in fact, that fast-food restaurants can't keep workers because you can make so much more per hour working in a warehouse and get decent benefits with it--but from what I hear, it sucks working in the warehouse, and it's hard work.

But what do you expect when you are working through college or don't have a degree and/or marketable skills, and these jobs are plentiful?

Do you expect Bezos to inflate his workers' salaries just because? I mean, he has gotten filthy rich off of understanding how supply and demand works--why would he abandon that understanding just to appease people who complain that he makes too much, pays too little, and is...how did you put it?...oh yeah, a "greedy piced of shi/?"

Just out of curiosity--have to looked into partnering up with Amazon and expanding both your reach and probably your sales numbers?

If so--why would you consider getting into bed with Bezos with your opinion of him?

If not--why, as a business owner, would you ignore something that could expand your own business?

But, you know...hooray for virtue signaling! We always pretend to know what's best for others to do with their own property, don't we?

There's some nutty comments on this thread. People opposing the very foundations of our constitution and capitalism and a free market.

Bezos found a way to become super duper rich. My only regret is that it wasn't me.




And yeah. I use Amazon regularly. Hoping my new bamboo rugs for the kitchen arrive today!

How much of this resentment is based on jealousy, I wonder.

You remember when you stated he made all his money during the recession and we're proven wrong?

No? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

Greed is not a punishable characteristic.

Greed isn't even illegal.

Goal post shifting? What was my concern in the op?

I just said how much he makes and urged people to shop local..

Im honestly shocked at how many people came to his defense.

The same people who scream about the media and the deep state. Defend him..

This is capitalism. Some fail, some make it big. Some have morals, some don't. I don't fault him at all for making this much money. I'm sure he put all his time into it at the beginning. I played that game once, I didn't enjoy not seeing my family or having free time, so I left.

I'll never complain about people having too much money, more than likely, they earned it.
