Amazon's Jeff Bezos approaching $1 trillion

Recommended Posts

Because nobody else has anything else to do but buy buy buy online!  Instead of doing some thinking while idle, they shop!  My postal friend says parcel volumes are almost Christmas time levels! Very sad!  And the Chinese get rewarded because everything is made there!  Like I already said elsewhere, have him and his billionaire buddies cut a check for $50 billion EACH and send it to the Treasury for redistribution to us middle class slaves!

I do like amazon, they have a really nice website and service. I'm also a fan of The Boys and The Expanse on prime video.

 

That said, I have recently started to buy directly from manufacturers and traditional retailers like Crutchfield, bhphotovideo, Sonix Electronix, etc.  When you bypass amazon, more of your money goes directly to the seller. 

I still shop at amazon, but I try to support my local businesses first and then diversify my online shopping.

Here in America, you can earn and/or make as much as humanly possible, what defines you as a good citizen is how you live your life as your earnings explode...latest thing Bezos is doing is going for a joy ride on a rocket ship with his brother into space. I get the implications for the success of Blue Origin, but seriously? This smacks of a publicity stunt that just shows how vapid Mr. Bezos is....I hope I am wrong on this.

 

Lets look back in our history on some of America's most famous rich people and compare them to today's crop of self-serving Richie Rich wannabes....

Here is the first Forbes "richest persons list", you will see some famous names on it, some were a**holes, some were philanthropists and most all were remembered for what they "gave back" to ensure their legacy. Andrew Carnegie was quoted and said it best, "He who dies thus rich, dies in disgrace."
