Why Is Trump Going After Amazon? It Is Obvious!!

ARTICLE FROM politico.com (Full story click here)

jeff_bezos_trump_splitI am here in Seattle, Washington where huge corporations like Microsoft, Starbucks and yes Amazon main headquarters are in the area. And it seems your President (not mine) Trump is going after one of these huge corporations. The questions is why?

It seems Trump is going after Amazon for one reason and one reason only. It is because he knows that Amazon leader Jeff Bezos also owns the Washington Post. A news organization that has been a big time critic of Donald Trump since he has been a so called President. So Trump is going after Bezos.

So the pathetic Trump is now making threats to raise postal rates on the tech giant Amazon which many consider this a war between Trump and Bezos. This threat cost Amazon over $35 billion in stock on April 2nd.

It seems higher postal rates could hurt Amazons online profits which depends on the Post Office. Come on ladies and gentlemen unless you are the great and former guest on “Music Inner City TV” Stevie Wonder you can see what is going on. It is like what the another former guest on “M.I.C-TV” the late great James Brown sang “It Is The Big Payback” by Trump. It is a outrage!!

Trump is trying to lower the boom on Bezos and Amazon because of the Washington Post. People are saying Trump’s charges that Amazon is exploiting the U.S. Postal Service is “made up” and Trump’s charges are hurting Amazon and it’s shares.

What Donald Trump is doing to Amazon is just plain stupid and just plain wrong. It is a perfect example of retaliation by the arrogant Trump. It again shows me what a REAL PRESIDENT and a man with style and class in President Barack Obama and the great former First Lady Michelle Obama and Sen. Hilary Clinton said and that is Donald J. Trump is unfit to be President.

NBA Season Starts On Tuesday With New Tech Rule

ARTICLE FROM ktla.com (Full story click here)

I love watching football and really only watch baseball when it is World Series time (want Ron Washington and the Rangers to win the Series) but I am a basketball junkie. So I am happy as hell the NBA season is opening on Tuesday.

Of course our team here in Seattle, the Sonics left our city a few years ago to a dust town in Oklahoma City!! A team that was here for FOURTY ONE YEARS and brought our city the only true pro championship in 1979.

I will NEVER get over Clay Bennett moving our team and I will NEVER forget Starbucks founder and former Sonic majority owner Howard Schultz selling the team to Bennett.

So I have to follow the many Seattle natives in the NBA like Jamal Crawford, Jason Terry, Nate Robinson, Rodney Stuckey, Terrence Williams, Spencer Hawes and others and just enjoy the NBA from distance.

With the season starting this Tuesday, there is a potential problem with a new rule that lets the refs call a tech on a player who gets called for a foul and just brings his hands up or shows just a little disgust it seems.

I have seen calls in pre-season that made me say…….what? So you know the players will not like this new rule. Some fans will like the new rule because they are tired of players “whining” when a foul is called on them. But I think this new rule is going to be a big big problem.

But anyway bring on the NBA season!!!     Gordon Curvey
