I called it: Amazon is Evil.

Booting Up: Amazon seeks small-biz supremacy

Prime ruthlessness at work

The latest chapter in Amazon’s ruthless war on Main Street and more hits too close to home.

Amazon has launched its own (uglier) version of The Grommet, an earnest Somerville startup that provides a sales platform for independent product makers and then helps small businesses to connect with those undiscovered products at wholesale rates.

The Grommet calls itself the birthplace of Citizen Commerce — whereas Amazon’s new platform, dubbed Launchpad, aims to be its death knell.

Now I’m sorry I helped fund Amazon for eighteen years.  But for the last 9 weeks I’ve been Amazon free!  It’s been that long since I attempted to buy an Confederate Flag on Amazon and (though I could buy a ISIS banner, Che Flag or T-shirt or bedsheets…) found out that Amazon had already snapped to in abeyance to the howls of the SJW mob.  So I’m finished with Amazon, listed below are the steps by which I got to this point.

Sales Tax  “Crony Capitalism”  and backing an Internet Sales Tax.

Dirty warehouse  has my stuff.

Shipping as a double-edged sword   so I stopped buying directly from Amazon.

Che’ works at a Amazon help desk   and “Don’t speaka the Engasle”.

Amazon has become a evil influence in the world, Amazon must be destroyed!   But ignored will have to do.  (That means Boycott!)

There was a time (called employment time) when I spent over 10k a year buying directly from Amazon.  Last year still spent over 3K, small potatoes. But if you put all your potatoes in a bag and hit someone in the head with it… but I think Amazon is to far gone to notice.  But at least we can stop funding it’s spread. Boycott!
