I rather like our current World’s Richest Man, Jeff Bezos, but I like ribbing him even more. It seems as if it ought to come with the territory: if you have a $100 billion dollars, people make fun of you.

    Why? Bezos is the poster child for everything that is wrong with America in the present day. One of the worst things about the whole Deep State-Wall Street-Academic Left axis is that it has allowed a disgusting little noveau-elitist carbuncle like him to sprout in the colon of our national malaise. For the love of all that is good and decent, Bezos must be destroyed.

  11. The ultimate power move on Twitter is to not follow anyone but have lots of followers. Bezos’ profile should say: “I don’t follow back. That’s right. F U.” Why anyone would follow his woman I don’t know.

    Poor you. It was unheard of, except for dead Canadian PMs, in my day. Last names used as first were rare, and almost always boys. (Laura) Mackenzie Phillips might have been the first such girl. Apparently folksinger Scott Mackenzie was (re)named after her.

    At least this particular fad name is usually spelled right. Michaela, Schuyler, and many others have been warped beyond recognition.

    Maybe these girls want to downplay the fact that their name means “son of” someone or other.

  26. Apparently folksinger Scott Mackenzie was (re)named after her

    It was said that Art Garfunkel resisted having his name changed for the sake of his career, and so, Simon and Garfunkel set a trend of not using Anglicized stage names. Scott Mackenzie’s name change was more typical for the entertainment industry (both music and movies) until the mid-Sixties, when suddenly, keeping your ethnic-American name was seen as being hip and counter-cultural.

    Still, being annonced on stage as Scott Mackenzie is better than being announced as Philip Wallach Blondheim III.

    I was alluding to Hong Kong as the classic example of a place succeeding without any natural resources to utilize. Gaza should have a similar skyline in a generation. After all, they have all the same talent, don’t they? And an ancient culture upon which to draw.

    I like the direction Redneck Farmer went with that analogy. Chinese in Gaza; a fresh idea (whose time may never come).

    Rather than annexation, what if sundry sorts of Overseas Chinese were just shipped over and allowed to take control, as they are so adept at so doing, near and far. That would mean the “Jews of the Orient” would take Gaza, while the next-door, ordinary “Semitic Jews” — with their definitely-not-fascist ethnostate and with their definite non-control over U.S. foreign policy — would no longer have to hold the whip over Gazan stone-throwers. Less need for regular terror-bombings; Think of the cash savings!

    Besides, the goy is one of the two most important humans to the Space Race Renaissance. Okay, so he’s a distant second, but just going by the sheer amount of money he’s pumping in, he’s probably going to close the gap.

    Plus I figure I should go easy on the guy because I know how I’d act with 100 billion dollars. My dick would be in the butter tray 24/7.

    On the other hand, I’d probably pay my people more

    TBH, I figure the Chinese would just send the current Gazans to reeducation camps on a permanent basis. The fireworks reference was to the fact that the world record fireworks show was supposedly the one the Chinese government put on after they got Hong Kong back. (As P.J. O’Rourke put it, Maggie Thatcher couldn’t be moved to keep Hong Kong, because it didn’t have enough sheep to entertain the troops.)

    You really think that would do anything? They’ll just point to Israel as an exemplar of diversity and show how it’s really a nonwhite nation.

    If I had 100 billion dollars, yeah, I can’t think of a good analogy, but yeah, I’d probably be sleeping around. I probably wouldn’t get married though. Too risky–at that level every woman sees dollar signs.

    Oh, and we’d already have e-Verify.

    I can’t hate Bezos that much. He’s only lately started banning crimethink on Amazon, I got a few obscure alt-rightish books at least as recently as a year ago. Compare it to Google that’s leaning all in on diversity (and fired Damore).

    As for subversive, misanthropic, malicious, and perverse…a French count wants a word with you. You should have at least made the statistical argument.

  47. @Desiderius

    Most of us would imagine that a man with his power and money could do a lot better than he has – whoever heard of trading in your rather nice (as a person) wife and mother of your kids for an older model?

    But look at Prince Harry – good looking guy, probably world’s most eligible bachelor – could certainly have had his pick from the showrooms – and he goes for a model with several previous owners, a lot of miles on the clock and from a manufacturer with a poor reputation.

    Still. she’s done the deed and produced an heir. I have a feeling the break-up could be even more long-winded and painful than Charles and Diana’s. Poor guy – he seems like a nice chap and I already fear for him.

  48. @International Jew

    Pretty good. 46 to 38–sounds ho-hum. Even 65 to 38–yawn.

    This is Israel where–at least i’m told–people are “can do”. It’s not the US where law has been hijacked by minoritarian lawyers, and we stumble through “there’s a lot of ruin in a nation”. Israel is small and hence can’t support a lot of “ruin” and enables officials to take reasonable actions. And, of course, Israel is openly a Jewish state. These folks aren’t Jews, are illegal and are ridiculously easy to spot. Zero would seem to be quite achievable.

    The sad thing is that even the bulked up Bezos is beta.

    It’s not like he blew up his marriage to bang a bevy buxom beauties in the flower of youth and begat a few bastard children on the side… worthy of a billionaire master of the universe.

    No he blew up his marriage for a well used, siliconized, menopausal mestiza–the wife in a friend couple. And worse, wrote her pining “you are my sun and moon and stars” type notes like he was a lovesick 16 year-old virgin.

    I hope the guy has some actual male friends who’ll talk some sense into him before he puts a ring on the mestiza. No love for the guy’s politics, but America deserves a Dr. Evil less embarassing than that.

    This is what our society has spent several decades gearing up to produce. Bezos, in all his world-conquering loserdom, is the 50-something American everymale times a thousand. He is emblematic of all we have become.

    You could say that Jeff Bezos is a true child of the Reagan yuppie counter-counterculture. To paraphrase Richard Nixon’s saying about Keynes, we’re all shallow Reaganite yuppies now. Both the Sixties and the old, great (and sometimes weird) America that preceded it are dead and gone.

  61. After working hard for naught in many mom-gang jobs where back-watching absenteeism and non-quota-meeting was the norm, I used to like him, thinking that he made people work hard. Then I found out via Bernie that Bezos hires a large percentage of welfare recipients, just like corporate back offices and call centers all over America.

    Office jobs are often “voted best for moms” since single moms need to work part time, officially, to stay under the earned-income limits for programs that supply them with free EBT groceries, reduced-cost rent, free electricity, monthly cash assistance and up to $6,431 in refundable child tax credit cash.

    Married moms often work part time, unofficially, watching each other’s backs while taking off days, afternoons and weeks beyond PTO and preggie leave. They also often chase everyone who is not in their corrupt, crony-parent gang out the door.

    Many employers discriminate against hard-working quota meeters who lack a spousal income, a rent-covering child support check or multilayered welfare from Uncle Sam for out-of-wedlock reproduction, opting for workers who do not need higher pay, permanent work or full-time hours because “they have somethin’ comin’ in” that covers their major household bills, like rent which has increased to insurmountable levels for single individuals living on one stream of earned-only income.

    Every job ad that I have seen for Amazon is a temp job. Even though Bezos has raised pay, single-breadwinner mommas can still drop their welfare during months when their income goes over the programs’ earned-income limits, picking it back up after the temp gig ends. They can game “the system” via slightly higher paying temp jobs.

    At first, I was surprised that Bezos could even employ the labor-cost-savings-through-a-workforce-paid-by-Big-Government-for-sex-and-reproduction strategy. Then I remembered: Bezos invested in Kiva robots. The robots enabled him to reduce his workforce of non-welfare-eligible, womb-less men whose far greater muscle mass enables them to lift far more massive boxes than even the most buffed females.

    The Kiva robots fetch the items for the pay-per-birth moms, and they assemble the items into the boxes. For now, moms have one more job category to dominate in very non-diverse crony gangs of moms. Thanks to their unearned income streams for womb-productive sex from Uncle Sam and Kiva robots, they’ve extended their crony reign over a formerly male-dominated profession.

    But even voted-best-for-moms warehouse jobs may soon be automated away, like many family-friendly absenteeism-friendly office jobs, leaving moms with the job they run from like the plague: raising the children they brought into world, rather than shoving that work off onto low-wage daycare workers paid by Uncle Sam or elderly grandparents. Moms sure do love to play show-off baby on the Internet. They like the show-off part a lot more than doing the daily chores of raising their kids.

    The Early Bezos (Nerd Period) photo has an interesting detail, which foreshadows other man-displacing tech disruptions. Notice the yellow cab in the background. Yellow cabs were once a viable option for males to make a living, but then Uber decimated that alternative, replacing it with one more 1099 / no-benefits / low pay / mom’s-basement opportunity.

    That said, there is one thing that is inaccurate in the Bezos critique: blaming him for the epidemic of retail closures. Internet sales are still only 14%, even after the maturation of the mobile-tech revolution, so the fall off in sales can’t be blamed on Bezos. Delivery to the home is good for certain parts of an aging population, in that they are home to receive the packages, and it reduces traffic for the many working-aged people with awful daily commutes. But at-home delivery will never be feasible for most workers.
