I know people think they are getting the best price when they go to Amazon----but the real price you are paying is the disappearance of the small business, the person in your own community, and maybe your neighbor. I have never bought anything from Amazon, and I never will.
The small business used to be such an important part of a community, although now, it’s hard to find community with people working so many poorly paid jobs.
The holiday season is here, so that wonderful movie, " It’s a Wonderful Life," will be here again. Maybe Mr. Bezos saw it and thought that Mr. Potter was the hero. : (
It’sA Wonderful Life," will be here again.

Combine the utter fallacy and fraud of self-driving car tech with how Amazon
bankrupts local retail stores, and you get Jeff Bezos in meltdown mode in a courtroom.

Once again Jim Hightower brings sunshine to the dark corners of capitalism. I love his no frills, get to the point style of writing, thanks Jim.

How about not buying at all- unless you REALLY need something.
