Somehow I doubt he is sitting on a pile of bills like Scrooge McDuck. He may be “worth $100 Billion” but the amount he can put his hands on is undoubtedly much less. If things get worse I could be sitting on more cash.

At this point, it’s hard for me to care what happens to Chinazon.

Apparently they’ve gone full SJW in management, like P&G. So hopefully hard.

The unions fought our government during WW2, that’s just what you get when you permit these socialist entities to ‘co-exist’ in a free country.

“With something like 30 percent unemployment, a lot of people would volunteer as replacements.”

Fire the union, hire people and put them on salary. This way they won’t be considered union employees.

Bezos is about to learn what everyone else with an ounce of sense already knows. Unions are a collection of Leftist Thugs. No different from Antifa thugs.
If Bezos has more than two synapses firing in concert within his skull he will simply fire every last one of those NYers and close the place down and relocate to a Right to Work state in the general area and distribute products from there.
I still remember the stories several years ago when the hurricane hit the NY/NJ metropolitan area and Electrical Crews from the South headed north to help and the electrical worker Union Thugs physically threatened and harassed them. Refused their equipment and their help because they wore not Union Brothers.
They were abusive and violent. They didn’t give a damn about the people who were without power. They only cared about their Union Status and, considered non-Union electrical workers as scum.


My grandfather worked for a packing house. Union of course. They went on strike. My grandparents had 10 kids and said his kids wouldn’t eat so he crossed the picket line. Union thugs beat my grandfather so badly he didn’t speak for a long time. He was in the hospital with bad head injuries. He survived but wasn’t the same. He rarely talked and if he did it was Just a few words. I never had a conversation with my grandfather. All the stories of his parents and grandparents were lost. I know those men will pay one day for what they did.

Worse, the poster boy was exposed to the Wuhan virus, on paid leave, and demands to come back regardless of the risk.

I use Amazon for research, but seldom buy there.
I hunt down the direct suppliers and order from them.
Usually cheaper and they make more money.

Yea, I've done this a bunch but it usually isn't that much better. The product will be cheaper, but Amazon more than makes up for that with free shipping. I tend to find Amazon is the better deal overall, ignoring sales or coupons.

Of course, if you can find it in-store locally, that's usually the best price if you're willing to take the time and effort to drive around to a couple stores.
