The Bald Vampire giveth and he taketh away!

From Bloomberg here:

  • Analyst finds basket of goods has risen 1% since September
  • Amazon unveiled much-ballyhooed price cuts after deal closed

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.

Advertisements

Aren’t Americans urged-cajoled-pounded by advertising into spending every last penny?

From the Des Moines Register here:

“I think not having the estate tax recognizes the people that are investing,” Grassley said, “as opposed to those that are just spending every darn penny they have, whether it’s on booze or women or movies.”

As an American you are conditioned everywhere you go to spend on whatever.  You deserve it!  Treat yourself you’re awesome!  Buy, buy, buy.

It would be nice if a politician or CEO would recognize the amount of advertising and conditioning that goes on in our society.

If this asshole wants people to invest more and save their money how about some changes to our fantastically hollow consumerist society??

I’m not holding my breath.

 

 

Following his fantastic work in Iraq….

From the Guardian here:

Tony Blair confirms he is working to reverse Brexit

Former PM argues claims made by leave campaign now clearly untrue and so British voters deserve second referendum

Well if the British public deserves a second vote do the Iraqi people get a second chance at having a country following Blair’s decision to go with Bush and invade Iraq on the weapons of mass destruction lie?

That’s pretty much a no go, I’m guessing.

It’s a wonder these war criminals are allowed to continue on and participate in public life after such shitty judgment.

Wow, NFL to shell out 100 million to protect its business!

Sub-headline from Slate here:

The NFL’s $100 Million Ploy to Stop Player Protests

The NFL has said players have the right to protest but they desperately would like it to not be happening and they will open their wallet!

If you’re interested in this issue you should read this article, it really reflects well on the values and trust the NFL enjoys!

Huge respect to Mr. Eric Reid for turning his back on this bribe/donation.
