This is a government sponsored monopoly. Now they've sucked up Whole Foods. That is why they have the power to do this kind of shit. In a competitive market, they'd kill their customer base but there are so few alternatives to the services they provide, in some places none, that they can get away with this. Even if their worst nightmare happens and they lose 20% of their customer base, they're not going anywhere because they have an incestuous relationship with congress, Democratic congress members specifically but it stretches both sides of the isle. It's easy to see where this is going. Amazon, like Google, like FB and Twitter, will have the support of the left in this country, the side that claims they hate war and corporations. Yet, it's okay to support a corporate monopoly as long as they're handing over cash to the Democrats apparently. I have heard horror stories about working in Amazon factories. It's crazy how Democrats have become more of a war party and are deeper in bed with corporate monopolies than Republicans were under GWB.

It's crazy, I have a lot of lefty friends on Facebook and they're all shilling for Nike. It's like the powers that be figured out how to trick everyone into being good little psychophant consumers. Everyone is so worried about racism, hate speech and hating the president that they've cozied up to the big corporations who helped create the narrative that started all this foaming at the mouth. People don't even realize they are being played.

dittos. I refuse to use amazon now other than as a source of product reviews and to get ideas of prices. I thought about applying at an amazon warehouse until I found out about their Chi-com style work ethics. For example, when you leave at the end of your day,, you queue up and wait as they check for stolen items! This often takes at least an hour and your are not paid while you are surreptitiously accused of being a thief. Feck that.

Stacking the deck to get the desired result

In every instance listed the democrats and independents were oversampled while republicans were undersampled. This is nothing new, they did this right up until the presidential election as well. That is why all of the polls were sure hillary was going to win. They skew the sample in order to receive a desired result.
