Kak, stop, this is just dumb mudslinging

It's not framed in any kind of cohesive argument, if you have something important to say, say it professionally or stick to Bolvars shitposting thread

Unlike the liberal bastion of hollywood, where they certainly dont ignore all the sexual assault, rape, prostitution and child molesting going on.

But hey, at least all those women can rest assured that the DNC turned a blind eye to them getting it in the brown eye for all that donation money.

Then again, democrats whoring out their voters is nothing new.

You mean the people being rooted out and brought to justice instead of covered for like the churches and GOP are doing for all of their priests and politicians?

How long has it been an open secret?

Sorry, one small and ineffective moment doesnt forgive decades of rape.

But hey, buddy.. if it makes you feel better, ive been a borderline militant anti theist since a teen, so the rope for priests is all good to me

Exclamation

Both of you, behave yourselves.

Kak, you crossed the line, so have a first warning courtesy of the house.

So, this post...

http://god-empress.tumblr.com/post/1...sanspatronymic


And the link within it
https://ilsr.org/amazon-stranglehold/

Really put Amazon into perspective for me and I'm increasingly concerned at Amazon's power as a mega-corporation, we really do not need another Walmart type megacompany, we need competition.

It's also disturbing how state and local governments have bent over backwards to facilitate Bezos's rise to power and how he's basically destroyed attempts to tax him.

It’s organized into four main sections:

In the first section, Monopolizing the Economy, we look at how Amazon is using its market power to eliminate competition and take control of one industry after another, leaving us with an economy that is less diverse and innovative, and which affords fewer opportunities for businesses to start and grow.

In the second section, Undermining Jobs and Wages, we examine Amazon’s labor model and find that work inside its 190
distribution facilities resembles labor’s distant past more than a promising future, with many workers performing grueling and under-paid jobs, getting trapped in precarious temporary positions, or doing on-demand assignments that are paid by the piece.

In the third section, Weakening Communities, we explore how Amazon is upending the longstanding relationship between commerce and place, changing the way that our communities feel and threatening the revenue streams and social capital that they depend on to function.

In the final section, The Policy Response to Amazon, we begin by looking at how Amazon’s rise has been heavily assisted by government support, including subsidies and tax advantages worth billions of dollars. And finally, we turn to what to do about it, sketching the steps policymakers should take to check the company’s power and bring about a more competitive and equitable economy.

You know, I've said before that I'm left of a hell of a lot of people, even here on SoL. I support regulated capitalism, but I'm a big fan of a progressive percentage based income caps, my tax plan is, admittedly, odd in that I think the first 100K a year anyone makes should never be taxed, but anything after 100K gets a 50% tax rate (so you make 200K, you pay 50K in taxes), and anyone who makes more than 5 million a year gets 75%.

I support global health care, with the caveat that the problems present in the health care system are fixed first, because it's unsustainable first. That....isn't ever going to happen because the United States is more or less paying for the rest of the world to have it's global health care systems by funding medical research via high prices. Yeah, the CEOs get a fat stack (enter the progressive percentage cap on income), but its not where most of the money goes. Nobody ever thinks about that.


Course, I'm also a nationalist, think open borders are stupid, think border security is a needed thing, think that while Climate Change is real, its vastly overblown, am pro gun, am somewhere in the middle of pro-life and pro-choice (A woman should have the choice, but it is 100% unacceptable that there were more children aborted than born in certain demographics in NYC a few years back).

Pro-gun, probably more than Kak to certain degrees, am anti-religion, think anyone in the nation illegally should be arrested and deported, with very little given in the way of exceptions. And if the nations many of those refugees can't fix their shit (They don't want to, and use the United States as a pressure valve to stop rebellion. Leave a way out, and all) I'm also really all for absorbing, forcibly or otherwise, Mexico and much of Central America
