25. It's a former museum, so plumbing

was probably already in place for most of those bathrooms. And if itís already there, use it so none of your guests have to wait for the loo at any given party. Seems extreme to us little folk, but I can see me making the same call if I had that kind of money, tbh.

Though I admit, the idea of his having such severe bowel discomfort 24/7 that he needs to be able to duck inside a stall immediately to avoid soiling himself is a charming counter narrative to ponder. 🙂

I have the notion that I have enough - and for that I am thankful.

of their own.

10. I have shopped at Whole Foods

Since it was an itty bitty store on Lamar in Austin in the '80s. The minute Amazon took over, I was done. I will never go in there again.

14. After Amazon took over

It isn't much different than Randalls/Tom Thumb/Albertsons or Kroger.

Thank the food god we still have HEBs Central Market.

(Oh and Trader Joes works too.)

13. God damnit.

isnít it counter intuitive to take health care away from your employees? When people are health and not worried about going bankrupt if they get sick, they come to work which benefits them, their families, the employer and lots of other people. Jesus. I own a small business that provides health insurance to our 7 employees. I could have any luxury home in MT if I didnít have to pay the premium for their insurance. AND, I couldnít enjoy that home or live with myself if I didnít provide insurance. Itís a win win to have healthy happy employees. Fuck Bezos.

I hope there's an indoor pool or two. What self-respecting billionaire would buy a giant mansion without a pool?

19. Long overdue. Billionaires suck off the teat of public spending on infrastructure.


Those roads and airports don't build themselves.

Nor is the carbon properly accounted for when goods travel half way around the world to inflate 1% pockets.

20. Capitalism allows Bezos and his small family to have 25 places to take a dump

While a few blocks away, another small family can not find one home with 1 bathroom they can afford to live in.

A few blocks away from Bezo's 1,006 light fixtures an elderly woman has to decide to eat or pay for her medicine.

This is capitalism and how it makes the most cruel and immoral situations normal.

22. But...

He did buy the Washington Post, and their reporters have done the digging that might bring this Republican/Trump nightmare to an end. There are many Amazon -related things I do not like, but I keep reminding myself of the Washington Post.
