Yet more evidence of the predatory nature of monopolist AMAZON and its cartelist founder Jeff Bezos, who also owns the Washington Post. I have not bought anything from AMAZON in years, due to its monopolization, mistreatment of small businesses and consumers (including a fraudulent $75 charge to me for Prime several years ago). I learned during the AMAZON Prime contretemps that in 2015, Bezos hired the former Deputy Chief of the Fraud Section of the Criminal Division of the Justice Department, Jeffrey A. Goldberg, as Associate General Counsel for Litigation and Regulatory issues. What a waste of a good education.
Speaking of bumptious billionaires, our St. Augustine City Manager, John Patrick Regan, P.E., said during a City Commission meeting last year that he was in touch with "three billionaires" interested in St. Augustine. Hopefully the "three billionaires" don't include Bezos and they won't try to rob and rape and murder our Nation's Oldest City, or try to take apart our beloved Bridge of Lions for their benefit.
Bezos "bears watchin'," as they say in East Tennessee.
