Trump vs. Amazon: A cultural divide

Kelly KitKat

Amazon and Costco are reorganizing the economy. And at the center of both of them is a philosophy, (or competing philosophies), dealing with ways of approaching and using tech associated with information processing. Costco, they charge an annual membership fee per household, or per member - that, is their profit, basically. And then they attempt to buy and sell everything else at cost, or close to cost. It sounds like a great deal, and it is, BUT, it is a limited selection. Food, clothing, house stuff - three basic categories, and few brandnames per given category, creates the illusion of limited choice. Everytime I go there, I look at the long lines and recall the stories of how people shopped in the Soviet Union. Lines at grocery stores were very fast when they had a cash only line. Now they go by number of items only. It is like they are attempting to get people used to scarcity and government deciding who gets what. when can be printed, or reeled in by raising rates - when money supply is elastic, potentially infinite , products and services can be superabundant, for to control consumption patterns, and maintain class distinctions, one needs only control the money supply. Hence, during recessions, people see products on store shelves but do not always have cash with wish to make a purchase. But When government is able to make it so money does not exist, or is scarce (bitcoin?) , then government will need to make products or services appear to be scarce, to maintain class distinctions... "Two scoops of ice cream for me, one scopp for everybody else" - see, VIP? Do they intend to barcode persons under enviro-mentalism?

Always remember, when dealing with enviro-mentalists, that Jesus fed five thousand with five loaves and two fish. Wherefore, resources are potentially infinite. And remember how it is written, And the JUST shall live by Faith. But some Native American groups will be upset, seeing their fishing licenses, "way of life", threatened by "white guys with boats" saying, "this is way cheaper than paying retail". But consider the children growing up "on the Rez" who would rather grow up as American citizens, for they hate apartheid, and having "the family business" forced upon them. "This is what we do - we live here, and we fish." To me, that sounds like Eugenics. And the biggest proponents of Eugenics are they who hate Christ, and champion jewish fascism, claiming genetic heritage determines who is a child of Abraham, and who not. They called themselves jews, who abused her and left her for dead : see, judges 19, kjv. Abraham and Sarah, they had stopped "having sex" in their old age, yet God gave Sarah a child, she conceived that night the Lord came to visit. Christian churches hate that teaching, because of its similarity to the virgin birth. And jewish groups which are partial to the writings of Theodr Herzl hate that interpretation, because it negates the idea that who is a jew, and who not, is established by bloodline. But the Lord knows who are His. Do not confuse correlation ("sex") with causality ("conception"). Not everybody desires The Light, The Truth, and not everybody is a Lantern. "The branch does not fall far from the tree". Some branches fell, and others were grafted in. And the Lord Jesus is called The Branch, and also, The Vine. If you abide in Him, you are of that tree. As Jesus said, The Seed is The Word of God. See, luke 8, kjv.

Trump is wondering why, and how, Amazon avoids paying taxes other retail operations cannot avoid, I think. ... That said, I remember ads which I have seen on television. But I cannot seem to recall a single click-thru ad on the internet, and have clicked on more by accident than by purpose. .. How is the internet attracting ANY ad dollars? You have a website? : If yes, then, Would you not place an ad in the local newspaper, television, or a national magazine? Lots of things simply "do not add up". Like how does Amazon make ANY money, with the prices they charge, or the free shipping they offer? Where is the R and D dollars coming from? Seems like they have access to "free money" or "slave labour". Under communism, would advertising exist? So, if the West was moving towards communism, advertising would disappear whilst you would see the surveillance of citizens consumption patterns grow.

wow, no conflict of interest in this reporting. (sarcasm) Donald Trump is a clinical narcissist, morally bankrupt, idiot; and he is a danger to the world. Amazon is a company that owns the Washington Post and is WAY to powerful and needs to be broken up.

KingOfShenanigans, you mean conflict of interest like Trump owning the hotel in Washington and all the visiting dignitaries staying there? Or taking world leaders to his country club in West Palm Beach? You insult the brilliant journalists at the WaPo when you are insinuating that Jeff Bezos dictate to them what to say or print, unlike Sinclair Broadcasting and Fox News. Bezos has minimal input in what is printed at the WaPo and any respected journalist would not allow anyone to dictate their narrative or treat them as puppets.

KingOfShenanigans the people who are responsible of WP and the people responsible of Amazon are not the same. Yes, they have the same owner, but they are two separate entities. I'm trying to vulgarise it.
