  1. y’all got jokes w. the title, huh?

  2. I work for UPS and we’re still picking up a lot of Amazons’ slack. “Anti-Trust” has been the business model for the U.S. Government for decades.

    *2019 : Stay away from negative people*

    _2020 : Stay away from positive people._

    • @Paul George people die everyday. Dying from the flu is no different than any other death. Trump 20/20

    • @Pip Huntington no way with the extra 300 lb that did them in. Weight management and exercise. Or essential for a healthy immune system. Most of the people today would die from a paper cut.

    • …and much like how a woman being abused by her husband might say “he only hits me because he loves me”, you can repeat “the government is only taking away my rights to protect me”.

      You seriously might have a leg to stand on if your left wing elected officials followed THEIR OWN mandates, but they don’t:

      I don’t have time to list all the examples but a couple are:

      1.) Gavin Newsom attending a birthday party at a restaurant, with no mask, indoors, with multiple households. Read his mandate on what happens to YOU if you do the same thing.

      2.) Nancy Pelosi getting her hair blown out, at a salon, again, no mask, again, indoors. Read what happens if YOU do the same thing.

      As every good tyrant says: rules for THEE, not for ME

      @Rebecca Hall I can see why there are more women then men and why women score higher in educational facilities. Thank you for the support.

    • @Kc 82 It doesn’t matter if you graduate from high school or not. You may not be able to get a decent job working at someone else’s business… But you can own your own business without college, and without a high school diploma. Yeah, they tell you in school that if you do not graduate you will be a homeless, drug addicted loser bound to a lifetime of minimum wage earnings. It’s not true though. Anything is possible if you can think outside the box. The public schools are not teaching kids that though, they are taught to think inside the box. Js

      Y’all just need to form a union! Then again, Amazon would just replace all their workers with fu kin’ Ro Bots. Domo aregato Mr Robot o.

    • @D S tax codes and loopholes that Trump benefits in, cause you know? he’s like a billionaire too,?

  7. It’s impossible to play a PlayStation when on a ventilator.

  8. The true meaning of Amazon Prime, folks.;)))

  9. The Republicans in the Senate and House need to go as well, because they betrayed our trust in them..

  10. That’s because fox propaganda “news” channel has jimjones koolaid drinkers “audience” do /buy whatever they see on there!!!

  11. Amazon doesn’t pay taxes but their employees do. Sounds about right

    • @Doug H nope.

    • @Jay Ess
      Yeah. The greatest failure in economic history. Regan was essentially just a well greased spokesperson for corporate america. And thats how its been since. Bush, Obama, Biden, Trump, Same thing. Corporations first.

      Stop lying, they pay every penny that is due.

    • @Calvin Sylveste
      Haha. Which is zero. Im not saying they “cheat”. They do it by the law, obviously.

      You see… Every country in the world has had to deal with corruption, fraud and tax evasion in their history. On the way to becoming civilized countries. The US simply made it legal. Thereby they can stand there and tell you there “ain’t no corruption and fraud over here” while being knee deep in it. The US is the most corrupt country in the civilized world. By a long shot.

      Amazon PROUDLY announces they pay zero % tax, but Google, Youtube, Facebook, all of them do the same. Last time I looked, Apple paid 0.015% tax.

      Why are you defending this?

      @Jan Ruud
      Taxes are on profits and not stock value. Between 2012 and 2015 made no profits, they can deduct those losses from future profits. they had 12billion in profits in 2019.

      In 2018, Amazon paid $0 in U.S. federal income tax on more than $11 billion in profits before taxes. It also received a $129 million tax rebate from the federal government.
      Amazon’s low tax bill mainly stemmed from the Republican tax cuts of 2017, carryforward losses from years when the company was not profitable, tax credits for massive investments in R&D and stock-based employee compensation.

  12. For those that go out the day after Thanksgiving, “Black Friday” has a new meaning.

  13. Amazon is riding a wave of success in 2020 unlike almost everyone else, profiting from our dire situations.

  14. At least face-masks give the surveillance state a poke in the eye!

  15. Where the hell are these people getting this money to shop??? I’m still praying for a 2nd stimulus to keep from getting evicted!!!

    • Many people working from home are saving more money than they did traveling to work. They save on gas, clothes, etc. In addition, with the pandemic, people are not going on vacation, traveling, etc. So the money they would have spent on those activities, they spend shopping online instead.

    • …and much like how a woman being abused by her husband might say “he only hits me because he loves me”, you can repeat “the government is only taking away my rights to protect me”.

    • Just about everybody I know, still works at the same job, since before Covid. They have money, just like they always had.

    • @Mot Kaou GTFOH! What a stupid video.

  16. I was so disappointed when I learned Santa Claus was from Wall Street

    • Santa originated from an early 20th century ad campaign (“The Man in a Red Suit”, Coca-cola) It is still treacle

  17. Biggest problem today is misinformation. Until slander and libel laws have any meaning, they need to be upgraded.

    While everyone had to close down, amaz0n warehouses were allowed to remain open. It was “primed” by allowing bez0s to be above the law.

  20. This conversation makes me think of this old saying: “a candle burns brightest before it goes out.”

    Bad things coming just over the horizon I’m thinking.
