‘The Message Is Clear’: Trump’s Amazon Obsession And Economic Authoritarianism

"Researchers who study authoritarian regimes, where such tactics are common, say that targeting individual companies causes industries to focus less on innovating and more on currying favor."

  1. Here’s a message that’s clear….Pence and all those cabinet members (depends on his mood today)
    (as of 3/28/2081: https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2018/03/trump-cabinet-tracker/510527/ )

    All of them sitting on their lazy incompetent asses, inserting thumbs “you know where”, are not even aware they have the power to remove this beast from the WH. But why would they? Where else will they get such an easy cushy job of just kissing his ass and cashing those checks? All the while, he is busy destroying the United States of America. Bezos/Amazon should sue his ignorant ass for continuing to make loud repetitive public statements that are clearly not true and are causing a loss of income (damages) to the company and all the investors. Ask this moron if he even knows how much a stamp cost! clueless fucking jackass.

    • 2081 was a great year

      • hahaha oops! missed that one! 2018. None of those people will make it even one more year, much less 63 years! a few will not even make it another couple of months!

    But now it will be easier for USPS to get another .50 to $1.00 per package without losing the business. For the past 50 yrs. I have seen private business take advantage of Local, State, and the Federal Government simply because the govt. negotiators had no concept of profit let alone profit maximization. I wonder how many incremental votes Trump will get from his current rant which is really very supportive of USPS and it’s workers

  3. This giant ass has bragged about not paying taxes because he is smart and knows how to manipulate the rules and take advantage of the loopholes – remember those comments during his debates? And now he rants about someone or anyone who runs a business so well that others cannot compete and lies about Amazon not paying taxes and accuses them of using USPS as their “delivery boy”. I think this fool does not understand that Prime Membership with Amazon (that I pay for annually) which entitles me to “free shipping” is only free to me – not free for Amazon who does pays USPS for that postage! Kinda like the other day when he announced he did not understand what Community College was! He also apparently has never heard of Vocational Schools. He is a complete buffoon.

    Now, back to his bragging about how smart he is — and not paying taxes — basically cheating but he calls it taking advantage of loopholes. Those taxes he does not pay like you and I do, that goes to many uses for our country’s needs — like infrastructure, those roads and bridges that he also rants about not being maintained by all the crappy presidents that preceded him. Those same things that he does not pay for when he cheats our country out of his share of those taxes!

    And now he appoints incompetent and inexperienced people to head departments of our government who have no ability to succeed but are really good at decorating their office or traveling via private jets or military escort, running a public school system by someone who has never been inside a public school building.

    OH! Wait until he finds out the current Postmaster General is a Democratic female who was appointed by the Postal Board of Governors for office in 2015 when Obama was the President! The first female to ever hold that position and has been a part of the postal service since 1986 and has a remarkable record of service with USPS. Check her out – he sure as hell won’t! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megan_Brennan
    He’s been wanting to put Keith Schiller (his former body guard) into a job – maybe he would make a good Postmaster General?
