From CNBC here:
- Chicago has offered to let Amazon pocket $1.32 billion in income taxes paid by its own workers.
- Fresno has a novel plan to give Amazon special authority over how the company’s taxes are spent.
- Boston has offered to set up an “Amazon Task Force” of city employees working on the company’s behalf.
- Stonecrest, Georgia even offered to cannibalize itself, to give Bezos the chance to become mayor of a 345 acre annex that would be known as “Amazon, Georgia.”
It would be easier and healthier just to break Amazon up or restrict its power in the marketplace.
Boston has basically offered slaves to Amazon. Are they going to put fresh oil on Jeff Bezos’ bald head each day or does he already have a robot doing that?
From CNBC here:
Indeed, T-Mobile,Home Depot, Bank of America and Mastercard all announced significant repurchase intentions this week. Home Depot led the way with a $15 billion buyback after it raised its long-term sales target.
While the recent spate of buyback announcements is a small sample size, it brings back memories of the last time Congress tried to bring back cash overseas through a tax holiday.
What a bunch of hypocritical, fucking liars. Nothing about this tax cut is about normal Americans. They’re going to take that money and buy their own shares back to make themselves rich.
This is just legalized corruption by a bunch of corporate jerkoffs.
From Bloomberg here:
That fuck didn’t buy Whole Foods for charity!
Or for consumers!
He bought the shit to make money and if he can make money playing a shell game with prices then that’s what the Bald Vampire is going to do.
He’s going to stay up all night slicing and dicing his prices with his favorite algorithms and then he’s going to count his money.
