I Haven’t Used Amazon For
Almost 3 Months And
I Don’t Miss It One Bit

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 3/7/2021 9:02:06 AM

My husband and I have been Amazon users for about 15 years. (Snip) We became Prime members in July 2017 and delighted in two- and even one-day shipping of everything from diapers to canned goods to dry erase markers to work boots, eliminating the annoyance of running to the store over one or two items. It seemed fun, easy, and exciting. And then it wasn’t fun, easy, and exciting any more, because Amazon became evil—and I learned how evil they had really been all along. Using it to indulge my own greed and materialism was one problem. Amazon’s use of its market power is another. Both are a big deal.


I've been buying a lot less on Amazon, but I still feel dependent on it for some things. And I've been going to Walmart's site for some things instead, which isn't much better.

I know this. When I can get a $1,50 part for an obscure aquarium pump dropped on my doorstep the next morning it's free. It would cost more in gas for me to drive around town to find it. PS Amazon's buddy Slow Joe just doubled their fuel costs in a month. They made out like bandits for a while but the Democrat bandits are coming for them.

Same here! When they deplatformed Parler, I canceled my membership. So far we are still surviving...kind of like we did before we had ever heard of Amazon! :D

I avoid using Amazon at all costs. The prices aren't cheaper, and as I found out after my son ordered an expensive computer product, they don't refund the full price. Only after contacting them three times and being assured each time that the refund would take just a couple of days did the refund come through and then it was a full $250 less than what my son paid for the product. Needless to say I already knew I never want to do business with Amazon again, but now my son wants nothing to do with them either.

I have been using Amazon almost from day one. We are now old timers living in a small mostly retirement town on the east coast of Florida. I can have any and everything I want at my front door in 24 hours. Why should I care what the politics of the situation are? Now when Bezos leaves at the end of the year, the party will be over because the unions will take over and goodbye good service. It was fun and convenient while it lasted.

We have been avoiding Amazon now for a while, most especially for big ticket items (tech items and backyard furniture etc) and monthly subs like cat food/litter, grocery items, and cleaning/laundry supplies and our family is fine. All that junk really adds up. We went from probably spending $$600 a month on all sorts of household items, vitamins and otc meds, and random stuff down to less than $100 on usually small stuff that is just hard to find or 3xs more expensive anywhere else. I know our efforts are a drop in the ocean but my mom and sisters have done the same. Dh is happy seeing less $ being spent too. Amazon made collecting "stuff" way too easy. Now we have to think more with every purchase and do research. No more easy button. So it's a win win for us.

#6, I didn't care about their politics either, until they decided to shut down a whole platform (Parler), simply because Parler disagreed with their (Amazon's) politics. At that point, yes, their politics matter more than my convenience.

I also quit over the Parler attack. I do use Amazon as a shopping search engine - I find what I need on that site and then go directly to the vendor’s site to make my purchase, leaving Amazon out of the deal completely.

We have been using IHerb for all of our vitamin and supplement purchases. They are the same price or cheaper than Amazon and we usually receive the product in several days. In one case it was half price. I can wait an extra day to avoid Amazon.

I've never been a big shopper there, but I do owe them a tremendous thank-you for the role they played early on in the lockdown. They were the ONLY place where I could put together a grocery order for my mom who was in an independent-living facility at that time. Admittedly, I'd have to spend literally hours (much of it in the middle of the night) to secure an elusive delivery slot, but they came through. Deliveries always arrived within the promised window time, and I could see exactly what was in the completed order. The site allowed me to keep a Cart so I could adjust as needed and respond to availability in real time. Produce and dairy were fresh and carefully-packed. It was a tremendous relief to know my mother had stock of everything she needed and I give Amazon kudos for making it possible.

We have curtailed most of our Amazon buying, and I deactivated Facebook, and cancelled Twitter. We have cut our tv news watching in half. Still listen to the radio, but sure miss Rush. The addition of Larry Kudlows' show is a blessing.

Almost anything can be found on Amazon, and they have the best search, and the best delivery in the business. The quality of some 3rd party sellers can be an issue sometimes. There are some small items that I could never find in a store, if they have it, that I order from Amazon. Business has become woke. I use them to the extent it meets my goals, nothing further. I mean nothing to them, and they no longer mean anything to me. We are not friendly. It's strictly business.

You may not care about their politics but they certainly care about yours. Conservative books/thought, have no home there. Use Amazon to read reviews of products you're considering then buy it elsewhere.

I too will search the big engines like Amazon and then look for better prices at the vendor and even at Ebay. I have had more purchases recently due to some home repairs/remodeling. Must say that with only 1 exception the delivery of these items has been nearly always within 2 days even though I always select the least expensive option for shipping. So the advantage of Prime is no longer such a bargain. Unfortunately Ebay, Wayfair and other sites are getting into the cancel culture too. But I will do what I can to give my business where I am not supporting those cowards. Ramona (the Pest)

Sadly, with the end of Fry's Electronics, Amazon is about the only source for the parts and equipment my husband needs for a side business he runs. He tried to find things locally, and looked for other sources, but could find very little locally, and the cost of doing business with other vendors was astronomical (especially shipping fees). Amazon knows they have us by the "short hairs" (as my husband says)...

I used to give Amazon all of my business. It was convenient, affordable and fast. We live in the boonies and it's rare we go into the nearest town. We literally spent thousands a year getting everything from toilet paper, dog food, seeds, electronics, tools, etc. Additionally, we paid extra for books and music. We've been members since 1999. I recently canceled the music, books and auto-ship subscriptions. I just looked to see what we had spent in 2020 and it was over $15K. I'm about to let Prime expire. I hope someone notices THAT.

Lots and lots of virtue signaling but not a great deal of proof of action. Bezos and his Ex developed a business model that won't quit and have provided my wife and I a critical essential service when the COVID crisis showed up. Who else could have done it? For all of you that quit; as far as Amazon is concerned you made no difference at all. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

We used to make 20-25 purchases a month on amazon. Once they got going on their censorship nonsense, we quickly moved to zero for the past 6 months. We also got tired of their punitive shipping delays with fedex. (we never paid the prime extortion). Package would arrive in phoenix, then sit there for almost a week. Bezos can take his politics and shove it.

I just checked to see if they were selling the book that Amazon axed, "When Harry Became Sally." It wasn't available. But here's what's odd -- while the site also didn't carry "Mein Kampf," there was a crapload of Louis Farrakhan's hate books.

Sorry for the second post. In the past I only bought things on Amazon that I couldn't buy elsewhere. I never spent more than $500 in a single year. Now I use the site to read the reviews of products that I buy elsewhere. It's been about a year since I purchased a product on the site.

Hard to believe NO mention of Walmart/Sam's Club Except for food, a huge percentage of products are made in China. Another company Costco, great number of items, especially furniture and some appliances from China. I have seen they are also adding Vietnam (production moved from China to Vietnam), Cambodia, Jordan, etc., but still when they sell a Bible printed in China, a country that persecutes Christians and Moslems, it is a little hypocritical of a left leaning company! I just shopped in Target, again many products from China. It is never ending!

Why does everyone seemed so shocked that so many products on the shelves of pretty much every store are made in China? In this country, we have unions, and companies have to pay a reasonable wage -- and it often gets very unreasonable when unions get involved. When you have to pay union employees $35 - $50 an hour (plus tons of benefits) to work on the assembly line, that cost has to go in the final price of the product. China, on the other hand, can pay pennies on the dollar for labor. You do what the government says you can do. So an employee in China may get $2 a day to work on the exact same type of assembly line. And he doesn't have any choice or say in the matter. So, of course, their products are substantially cheaper. Economics is the bottom line for most people. They may not like buying things with the "made in China" logo on the package, but they also don't want to pay 10 times as much to buy that same product made here in the USA. And as long as the unions have so much unreasonable power over labor in this country, nothing is ever going to change!!!

What’s Causing America’s Baby Bust? 2 replies
Posted by Judy W. 3/11/2021 7:05:34 AM Post Reply
When the COVID-19 pandemic started and lockdowns became part of our daily lives, some romantic souls were predicting that this would produce a baby boom. Now, as the data shows up, we see exactly the opposite. CBS obtained data from health departments in over two dozen states that shows “a 7% drop in births in December—nine months after the first lockdowns began.” Research from the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., predicts that births may well be down 300,000 to 500,000 in 2021. The prediction is based on a negative correlation between birth rates and the unemployment rate. Higher unemployment means fewer babies.
Trump’s Middle East peace initiatives

Had Trump remained president, his legacy would have included making true peace in the Middle East. This would have encompassed Sunni Arab nations laying down arms as to Israel, while Iran would have been rendered inconsequential – and, perhaps, the beleaguered Iranian people might have been able to eject the mullahs. With Biden, though, Obama pulls the strings, which means wooing the mullahs, being hostile to Israel, and denigrating the Saudis. Nevertheless, some amazing Saudi outreach to Israel means Trump’s Middle East peace plans still matter. Trump’s genius in terms of the Middle East was to ignore the Palestinians into oblivion.

Governor of South Dakota Kristi Noem made headlines in 2020 for keeping her state open during the COVID-19 outbreak and opposing Faucian dictates about masks, stay-at-home orders, and church closures. To this, conservatives applauded — and rightly so. But does holding the line during a pandemic in a state with less than 900 thousand people — about the size of Charlotte, North Carolina — now warrant the frenetic swell of support for Noem among conservatives to be the next vice president or even president? Absolutely not — especially at time when the fight for constitutional conservative values is more important than ever.

In America, class warfare is often disguised as culture war, and culture war is often cloaked by talk of race. But underneath it all, the class warfare is still there.

The Republican Party’s leaders still don’t get it. That’s the big takeaway from a newly-released strategy document from the largest Super PAC backing Republican House candidates.

Take former President Donald Trump.
