Amazon Is Having a Real Problem Staying Online and Operational

Amazon is the king of online retail.  In getting there, they have engaged in many anti-competitive practices…to destroy and then become brick-and-mortar retail. And a really well kept secret – is that retail isn’t Amazon’s most successful business. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is.  That is richest-man-in-the-history-of-the-planet Amazon owner Jeff Bezos’ cloud computer backup company. Amazon’s Cloud Is Bigger, More Profitable Than We Think Amazon Web | Read More »

The Biggest Impediment to Better Internet? Local Governments

Thanks to the obscene over-officiousness of the Barack Obama Administration, we have spent much of our time the less decade or so discussing the incredible damage the federal government can do – and was doing – to…everything. Obama’s outsized over-officiousness – certainly warranted the outsized extra attention.  Because his one-size-fits-none government impositions – left no room for anyone anywhere to breathe.  Let alone actually engage | Read More »

Amazon’s No-Profit Model: Bleed Competitors to Death – Then Do Exactly What They Did

Breaking: Amazon’s Defense Dept Cronyism Comes Under Trump Administration Review

God bless the Internet – and its round-the-clock delivery of breaking news. Which is disruptive to those of us who like to write about these sorts of things. But it is like the News Fairy constantly sprinkling her fairy dust down upon us. We have for months now been writing about the utterly corrupt crony system uber-retailer Amazon has embedded in the Department of Defense | Read More »

There Is So Much Wrong with the Left’s State-Level Pushes for Net Neutrality

Ever since the Donald Trump Administration’s Trump Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it was undoing the Barack Obama Administration FCC’s unilateral, Congress-free imposition of 1934 monopoly landline telephone law on to the Internet – under the guise of the very awful Network Neutrality – Leftists have been flexing the crazy they have long since gone.

The Democrat-Left: Stupid, Insane – and Very, Very Violent

We are in the midst of a seriously, seriously dangerous ramp up by the radical Left.  Not since the 1960s have these people been this riled up, angry – and prone to fits of violence. The 1960s gave us murderous groups like the Weather Underground (founders of which launched future president Barack Obama’s political career) and the Black Panthers – which marred our existence for | Read More »

Amazon Killed Toys ‘R’ Us – But Much More Dishonestly Than the Way You Think

The conventional wisdom is that brick-and-mortar retail is doomed to die – very quickly, and very soon. As is usually the case – the conventional wisdom is quite conventional…but not particularly wise. Now to be clear – I am neither a Luddite nor an idiot.  The mid-1990s moment the government wisely privatized the Internet – well, you didn’t have to be a brick-and-mortar mogul to | Read More »

Amazon: One of the Biggest of Bigfoot Cronyism-Recipient Lobbyists

There is an old school joke – told by happy transplants to Texas from…anywhere else on the planet. It is: “I wasn’t born in Texas – but I got here as fast as I could.” It is of this I years ago thought when I then read Amazon founder – and thereby now the world’s richest human – Jeff Bezos had said he didn’t lobby | Read More »

Taxation w/o Representation. Interstate Commerce Usurpation. Murdered Federalism. Internet Sales Tax

The Supreme Court last week issued a really ridiculous and awful ruling.  In blatant violation of the Constitution’s Commerce Clause and its protections of federalism – and of the “Taxation without representation” foundational rally cry of the American Revolution that preceded it. First – the Constitution violation.  Behold Article I, Section 8, Clause 3: “[The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, | Read More »
