I won’t bore you guys by showing you the termination notices sent to me.
You might recall that I used to have their ads on my blog, supposedly a way to generate revenue with my admittedly small time, boutique backporch looking over the wild, wild web.
You guys have no idea how long I have wanted to hear these scribblings referred to as “boutique”- gotcha!
Getting back to this situation with Jeff
BOZOPreston’s company, you might want to check out a couple of recent articles to gain some awareness of the issue.
Seen enough? Think you have a handle on this issue?
And now a confession from Morongobill.
I confess that I have been a smalltime Amazon customer for years, off and on.
Besides the convenience, you weren’t asked to pay any sales tax. Now I never did this, but I know others who have; you could go look at something expensive at a brick-and-mortar store, see all the bells and whistles, then skip out and buy it at home, and pay no sales tax.
Well now it is time to pay the piper, folks. In case you haven’t noticed, our cities and villages and infrastructure are crumbling right in front of our very eyes. We got newly 99’ers with their whole families on the streets pushing shopping carts loaded down with all they could take out of their newly foreclosed houses- it’s terrible, and it is just in the beginning stages, we
even have Obamavilles springing up all over this country.
What I am saying is we are between a rock and a hard place here in this country and especially in California. Now is not the time, with all the talk of government cutbacks coming from the feds all the way down to the county level, for a large corporation to adopt such an arrogant attitude as Amazon is doing here. They are painting themselves into a corner, and if we had a politician say along the lines of an FDR who knew how to explain something in a way most could understand, or one who like Jack Kennedy wasn’t afraid to call a son of a bitch, a son of a bitch- maybe Jeff Preston
wouldn’t be so tone deaf to the obvious needs of the real, physical brick-and-
mortar world that the rest of us have to live in, and do the right thing here- and
render unto Caesar what is Caesar’s.
If you read that article from the Los Angeles Times, you will notice that the Bozo might face real opposition from the local and national retailers like Walmart over this proposed initiative ballot Amazon is thinking about trying to bring to the ballot in February.
I’ll meet you guys at the local bookstore, okay?
Late addition here. I came across another article claiming Amazon was going to collect the sales tax so I surfed over to them, got to the checkout final stage, you look at this screenshot. It sure doesn’t look like they are collecting any tax, does it?
Boycott Amazon and the Bozo!
