The ´Amazon Washington Post,´
and Why It Needs to Be Destroyed

PJ Media, by Michael Walsh

Original Article

Posted By:steveW, 7/23/2017 4:14:47 AM

As readers of PJ Media´s daily feature, Hot Mic, are aware, I´m not a big fan of Amazon. In the guise of ease, efficiency and allegedly low prices, it´s crushing the life out of the retail section in the United States, demolishing bookstores, big-box stores, department stores, grocery stores, record stores, and even smaller retail outlets, putting small businessmen, struggling authors and garage bands out of business. In so doing, it´s also killing job prospects for entry-level workers who might actually not want to work at McDonald´s. In their place, it offers you Alexa, your very own electronic monitor and spy,

Only We the People can destroy it. Exit Prime. Exit the mighty Amazon.

If you don´t like it, invent a better mouse trap. The ugly little truth here is that Amazon Prime works. Without leaving my chair I can find exactly what I´m looking for, buy it, and it will be here in a day or two. Saved a couple of gallons of gas in the process.

I think it was the United States Post Office that pushed me to AMAZON. When the postage was more than the Present I was sending to my Grandchild I turned to Amazon. The present cost less, I had way more to choose from and I didn´t pay ANY postage on the package! Amazon simply created a better way. Also, I bought Alexa for Hubby for his upcoming birthday. We will have fun with it, and no, it will not be on the Bedside Table.

I think Amazon´s might is being slightly overstated here. While it has ruled on-line sales, brick-and-mortar retailers, e.g. Wal-Mart, are offering it serious competition now such that Amazon is venturing into their territory with its own stores and buying Whole Foods. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. All in all I think that the consumer will be the winner regardless.

In 10 minutes I bought 10 -12volt, 5watt bookcase push-in bulbs for a 50 year old book case at our church - $10 and free delivery on Prime. Would not have driven all over Dallas looking for a lite bulb store that carried this odd item. I know Home Depot and Lowe´s, and their GE/Philips sponsored lite bulb sections do not carry this once in a generation item - the category killers of the 20th century.

Yesterday I made a purchase online. Because I have Prime I almost purchased it from Amazon. However, I looked elsewhere and gladly paid the shipping cost another company charged. It´s time to back off from the convenience of Amazon and help other retailers grow their businesses. It´s also time to tell Bezos to buzz off!

Amazon is building 2 warehouses in Houston and adding 5,000 full time jobs. The enemy of retailers is not Amazon, it the property tax collector, which makes the cost of carrying inventory prohibitive. That is why your retailer doesn´t have anything, but will order it.

I do buy from vendors posting on Amazon, but it´s extremely rare that I buy the product directly from Amazon. Yes, I know Amazon charges the vendors a fee. But I imagine Amazon would make more if I bought it directly from them. Bezos is a man I have no respect for.

I am certainly no fan of Bezos´ politics, but he is an entrepreneurial genius that capitalized on modern technology and delivery. The "brick and mortar" retail approach has involved too damn much overhead and too damn many middlemen for years, and Bezos pioneered in breaking this up. Give credit where it is due and separate out the politics.

Like or not retail dinosaurs: the future is here - adapt or become extinct. (And there is plenty of room to adjust their business model. Start with the catalog store template, and improve on it.)

As to WaPo: it has overstepped and has lost credibility. Like Obamacare, it is destroying itself. Just let it happen.

When the bookstore becomes a toy and tschotske store, and the department store bases its selection and advertisements on alternative life styles, then don´t be surprised when I shop elsewhere.

Example, yesterday I went to an office supply store to buy clean-edge two-sided business card blanks. I have bought this item at that store for years. But yesterday, the staff said they no longer stocked them.

Amazon Prime will be delivering them by this evening.

I have been an Amazon customer since 1998. Fully involved with prime,firestick,echo. Friday my wife said she needed a new hair dryer,checking Amazon we found 1 she ok´ed. They offered a reduced price with a "lightning" round. We took advantage.They confirmed the order but at their regular selling price. Now the aggravation started with phone calls. A Filipino who doesn´t understand English. Then at my insistence an American. Long story short I was told that to get the discount I had to purchase 2 items from the same manufacturer!! They couldn´t honor the discounted price. I check the web page,read it twice and no where does it state two items. Then I went to my 19 year Amazon record,I have spent just $200.00 shy of $50,000.00. I´m looking for another site to buy from and so should you.

It´s not often I disagree with Mr. Walsh, but I do here:

1) You don´t have to go into debt to purchase from Amazon...I use a debit card and it works great.

B) Nothing´s stopping somebody else from creating another Amazon to compete. I don´t like Bezos, but he had a vision and he toughed it out during the lean years. If somebody else (besides Jack Ma) wants to do the same, I´ll use them.

3) As a writer (as yet unpublished), I´m all for royalties, but I´m even more about free enterprise.

4) I often shop at Ace instead of Home Depot even though I love HD because of convenience and expertise. I wouldn´t hesitate to do the same online. Capitalism isn´t a zero sum game...everybody can win.

5) RE: Use of post office - Amazon is just making use of something that´s already there. And it ain´t like the PO doesn´t need the help.

6) The part that does give me pause is the WaPo purchase. But there again, other humongous companies own media (GE, et al).

"Russia, Russia, Russia" isn´t working and may actually turn against the Democrats. What is next in their playbook? The usual racism page, although this time, it is for all of the marbles. With nothing to run on besides "Trump is evil," and with the Awan scandal ahead, they have no choice. Twenty-eighteen will be a bloodbath for them in a regular election, so they have to suppress turnout, if not eliminate it. More and more, Charlottesville looks like a setup.

The people who are tearing down statues of Confederates in the South are barbarians, not notably different from the Taliban fanatics who blow up Buddhas and other historical monuments. Many have noted that if the barbarians want to erase Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis today, it is only a matter of time before they come for George Washington and Thomas Jefferson. We can add Abraham Lincoln to that list. Last night, a bust of Lincoln in Chicago was vandalized, apparently as a political act: Abraham Lincoln has joined George Washington on the list of those targeted by Chicagoans in

In the days since violent clashes at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville culminated in a neo-Nazi sympathizer driving his car into a crowd of counter-protesters, journalists have mainstreamed the self-described “anti-fascists” (or “antifa”) at the rally — largely ignoring their involvement in the escalating political violence in this country. Many establishment political figures insisted the far-left actors were just like American soldiers on D-Day. But these “anti-fascists´” own statements show they’re nothing like American soldiers on D-Day. They aren’t interested in protecting America’s system of government, according to their own statements — they’re interested in destroying it. From the very start of

Violent Antifa Protesters Try to Shut Down
Pro-Trump ´Patriot Prayer´ Rally in Seattle
PJ Media, by Debra Heine    Original Article

Hundreds of pro-Trump demonstrators and anti-Trump counter-protesters converged at Westlake Park in downtown Seattle on Sunday, resulting in several arrests and the confiscation of weapons. The rally, organized by the conservative group Patriot Prayer, came one day after violent clashes in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left three people dead and dozens injured. Counter-protesters -- including antifa, Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), Veterans for Peace, Indivisible Seattle, Black Lives Matter, and the Freedom Socialist Party -- marched "in solidarity against hate," specifically against what they called “the bigotry, racism and violence" of the "far-right" organizers.

President Trump is still facing a torrent of criticism for his responses to the Charlottesville violence. After calling out the hatred and violence from “many sides” on Saturday, Trump finally did what the media demanded and condemned white nationalists and other hate groups by name. Yet, that wasn’t good enough for the chattering class, and the new denunciation is not winning the president any goodwill. While it’s certainly true the president could have articulated a better message over the weekend, his administration is taking a very hard line on the Charlottesville violence. The Department of Justice is launching a civil

Normal Americans have watched our politics turn to mud for a quarter century, since Bill Clinton, the Arkansas corruptocrat. We´ve watched it and watched it while the media turned into a copycat Soviet propaganda ministry, and now, finally, somebody is acting like an adult and talking without having to explain every single word.

In Dallas, a black nationalist activist shot and killed 5 police officers at a Black Lives Matter anti-police rally. Instead of condemning BLM, Barack Obama defended a racist hate group whose role model is Assata Shakur, a wanted black nationalist cop killer, at the funerals of the murdered officers.

Two members of the Kennedy family were arrested for disorderly conduct near the family’s famed compound on Cape Cod, according to police. Max Kennedy, the 52-year-old son of Robert F. Kennedy, was taken into custody for disorderly conduct and a noise violation around 1 a.m. Sunday morning after reports of loud partying, Barnstable Police told the Boston Herald. His daughter Caroline, a 22-year-old California resident, was also arrested at a home a short walk from the main Kennedy compound.

Secret Service Director Randolph "Tex´´ Alles, in an interview with USA TODAY, said more than 1,000 agents have already hit the federally mandated caps for salary and overtime allowances that were meant to last the entire year.

Rep.

According to Ryan, the Republicans had no chance at the White House, so at the very least they should try to retain their House majority. The directive came during a conference call, Gohmert told The Daily Caller in a video interview and then confirmed again during his appearance on "Fox & Friends" Sunday.

Ten sailors are missing and five have been reported injured after the USS John S McCain was involved in a collision with a merchant vessel on Monday morning, the Navy has said. The collision between the US guided-missile destroyer and merchant vessel Alnic MC was reported at 5.24am local time. The John McCain was underway east of Singapore and the Strait of Malacca, on its way to a routine port visit in Singapore. It is now sailing under its own power and heading to port, the Navy said. The crew is reportedly fighting flooding in two crew berthings and an area of the ship known as the 'shaft alley'.

The eclipse that occurred over Chicago led thousands to the beaches and streets, where they gasped and cried out as the sun partially disappeared. For WGN meteorologist Tom Skilling, it was an especially awe-inspiring event. The famed meteorologist hugged and high-fived people around him and wept as the eclipse occurred Monday afternoon. "Oh, my word," Skilling said. "Wow. This is amazing. What do you think of this, this?" At another point, he told viewers, "I´ll get my act together, guys." His voice cracking, Skilling apologized for his tears. Skilling´s heartfelt reaction earned him praise from fans:

Trust in the mass media is at an all-time low. Two-thirds of Americans believe the mainstream press publishes fake news. Yes, there’s still much good journalism to be found, if you know where to look. Yet, ask reporters who’ve been around a while, and many will tell you that a lot of good journalism is being left unpublished. Good journalists hate what’s happening to the news. We have only ourselves to blame. Firewalls that once strictly separated news from opinion have been replaced by hopelessly blurred lines. Once-forbidden practices such as editorializing within straight news reports, and the inclusion of opinions as if

Some tweets referring to their visit also suggested the white high school girls should be beaten up. One of the high school guests, in a social media post of her own, said they were simply visiting the school’s cafeteria to get food as part of a larger tour of the nation’s capital, and faced a barrage of insults and aggressive acts, including having
