Just more of your Marxist propaganda. Only government can do that. It's what a liar you are. You attack what government does with it's monopoly on guns, then demand MORE government
I'm missing the government monopoly on guns in a country with more guns than people. US government at all levels has treated gangsters much differently than it has dealt with labor organizers and leftist leaders like Fred Hampton for one of numerous examples.

It's Jeff's employees job to feed themselves and their families. They could do that if they cared about their job and their employer and had a good attitude. Why it is on their employer to care more about their families than they do?
Amazon has over 800,000 employees with most earning between $13 to $30 dollars an hour. Greedy Jeff is worth $180 billion. There's no reason why US taxpayers should have to subsidize that level of exploitation.

Amazon.com Inc Hourly Pay | PayScale

"Amazon.com Inc pays its employees an average of $16.55 an hour. Hourly pay at Amazon.com Inc ranges from an average of $12.36 to $29.01 an hour. Amazon.com Inc employees with the job title Technical Recruiter make the most with an average hourly rate of $32.59, while employees with the title Security Officer make the least with an average hourly rate of $12.00."

The logical fallacy you just committed is equivocation. I was referring to monopoly of guns in government force. You changed that to refer to private ownership. No one is using guns to prevent government from confiscation and redistribution.

Fact check on georgephillip: Liar, liar pants on fire. Only government is using guns to redistribute money, no one is using guns to stop them

More Marxist rhetoric. What are you talking about that "taxpayers" are subsidizing this? That doesn't even make sense.

You and your communist fuck buddy JoeB need to remember when you're talking to other people, we don't just assume the truth of whatever Marx wrote and you have to explain what the hell you're talking about.

So how many people do you think should lose their jobs so government can fuck Bezos for you?

Capitalism can't exist without property rights. And by definition, a mafia violates property rights.

So capitalism definitionally can't be organized crime. Those contradictory.
Would you say organized crime elevates property rights over human rights?

How about capitalism??


Capitalism is Organized Crime

"Here’s an example: the pharmaceutical company Purdue started manufacturing OxyContin in 1996, claiming that it was non-addictive.

"For years, they knew that was a lie, but covered it up while pushing for reckless prescriptions and higher doses anyway.

"After millions of people did in fact become addicted to OxyContin, opening the door for many to use and become addicted to heroin, the company’s board saw an opportunity.

"They started talking about expanding into the addiction treatment market to become an “end-to-end pain provider.” According to ProPublica, 'Purdue executives discussed how its sales force could promote Narcan,' a drug used to treat overdoses, 'to the same doctors who prescribed the most opioids.'"

Barge in, cause problem, sell solution. Money in the bank.


Purdue doesn't own Narcan.
Naloxone has been available as a generic for decades.

First off, Foxconn provides high paying jobs to Chinese workers, that's why thousands have traveled hundreds of miles, to get jobs at Foxconn and other factories.
How many commit suicide after arriving at Foxconn?
Do you think Tim Cook knows or cares?


Ranking the Infinite Greed, Power and Controls of Giant Corporations | Ralph Nader

"Apple made $104 billion in the last 12 months, puffed up by tax-avoidance, tax cuts and a no tariff deal with Trump on its Chinese imports, yet Tim Cook has rejected pleas to spend a little over $2 billion (deductible) to award a full year’s pay bonus to the 350,000 Foxconn workers who build Apple’s iPhones and iPads.

"Apple’s massive stock buybacks have, however, increased the metrics to set compensation levels for Tim Cook and his executive sidekicks.

"Unfortunately, stock buybacks do little to tamp down excessive prices for Apple products.

"The massive stock buybacks also send a message that Apple’s management has no other uses for its corporate cash – not for R&D, not for improving the nature and security of its workers’ pensions, not for investing in curtailing the damaging side effects of Apple products on the environment and not for reducing other offloaded damage to society."

Maybe you missed it, but those same Chinese workers, prior to the 1980s, would have been living in absolute object poverty, on communal farms, where they would stay, and die, in poverty.
How many additional Chinese workers would have been lifted out of poverty by abolishing parasites?

I support property rights. You can't unionize my company. Because... it's mine. Not yours.
You're confused.
If a majority of workers at "your" company vote in favor of forming a union, it is their decision that counts not yours if you want to stay in business.
