Amazon vs Cortez

Ballot creation date: 02/09/2019


Fact: The Amazon Company placed about 200 US cities in competition for the location of their new company headquarters. Fact: This placement included about 25,000 (Twenty-five thousand) jobs that average $150,000 income per year each, or over $30 Billion in taxable income over a period of ten years. Fact: The city of New York, to win the competition, initially allowed Amazon a $3 Billion corporate tax break to locate their new headquarters in a part of New York City, largely represented by Freshman Congressperson Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Fact: NY Governor Cuomo, and NY City Mayor deBlazio then argued that New York should not subsidize the richest man in the world (Owner of Amazon, Mr. Bezos) with a $3 Billion tax break. Facts: Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was outspoken and insistent in adding that 'the $3 Billion (that cannot be spendable money by NY because it wouldn't exist even with an Amazon deal, being only a 'tax break', not existing money), would be better spent, (which is impossible because it wouldn't exist), on more school teachers.', Mr. Bezos then summarily, without further talk, cancelled all plans to locate Amazon headquarters in New York.

Analysis and Conclusion relative to theft:

Unlike socialist political negotiations, free and capitalistic enterprises do not require any negotiation, compromise, or diplomacy with ‘Stupid’. Once ‘Stupid’ is seen by the most casual of observers in human relations, the greatest value ingredient becomes time, and when 'stupid' or 'insane' is recognized, wasted time is economically eliminated, without fanfare or gnashing of teeth. The final, operative word of the 'smart' or 'sane' party is simply, “Goodbye!”, which is what Amazon/Bezos did upon immediately withdrawing his offer without interest in any further discussion. This MOT Poll Ballot weighs the theft of limited US public time and attention by the Main Stream Media on things like the Cuomo/deBlazio/Cortez idiocy concerning the Amazon-Cortez proposed Amazon Headquarters deal.
