We, Anonymous, suspect Amazon of corruption.

The fact that Bernie wrote Bezos's name into the bill, of all people, is rather suspicious. It is possible that Bezos's intention was to have this bill passed to sabotage his competition while recuperating the losses to him through corruptible means.

Do you think Bezos has sodomized Bernie Sanders at least once, /g/?

Amazon is probably the least bad of the lot, actually. Unlike Google, Facebook, and Twitter they made their name by selling actual goods to people, instead of by selling people to advertisers. Unlike Apple their business model has been to drive prices down, rather than up.

All of them, that's why we need the government strictly limited to protecting individual rights so larger, more powerful entities cannot use undue leverage on the rest of the people.

Governments are mostly just a protection racket and will try and squeeze ever more revenue from you whenever they can. Playing games to avoid their grabbing isn't just justifiable, it's practically necessary for any company of any significant size.

Apple is definitely the least "worst" of the bunch regarding privacy and big brother.

Too bad they make garbage software and have terrible value.

What the fuck are you on about you fucking crackpot?

For one the Government, here at least, serves money to maintain and build the very infrastructure these companies need to operate. In many cases they will subsidize costs for tax credits or materials to expedite or incentivize construction of a given business's infrastructure. It also issues contracts with those same businesses. I'll grant you the latter systems are rife with corruption, but it's only exacerbated by tax dodging.

As a second point, it forces the fed to rely on taxes from individuals. This creates a twofold issue, it virtually universally increases the cost of living, which reduces individual spending. As a product workers want higher wages to satisfy their financial desires, now the bottom line costs more to employ.

As a final point, and we'll see the effects sooner rather than later, defunding will occur at the bottom run and cause rapid runaway decay. Initially it will occur at practically invisible levels. Think a crack in a bridge that didn't get inspected because the budget was too low to afford enough inspectors. Winter hits and a stress fracture widens. Trucks run over it time and time again, worsening. A melt hits, the cold comes again, it gives out. Below it, the train moving at 60mph derails 50 cars and a locomotive. A few people die, the chemical payload of the truck leaks everywhere, half a million in railcars is ruined, 30 million in inventory is destroyed.

Ever been to Chicago, anon? One of the highest-tax areas in the nation, apart from the bay area and NYC. So they must have really great infrastructure right? Wide new freshly-paved highways, modern fast rail system, and so on? Like hell, the place is fucking falling apart. They collect billions upon billions of dollars, but how much of that actually gets spent on infrastructure and public services? Not much, most of it goes to union pensions and featherbedding, or just gets wasted in bureaucracy by people who don't have to care because they can't be fired.

Government acts exactly like a corporation does when it has a monopoly. It doesn't care about giving you good service or value for money, because you can't just take your business elsewhere without moving away. At most you can vote for the other party in the cozy duopoly. You know, the other party that also wants to give its people some cozy sinecures, and enjoy power without that bothersome work. Unless you're in a place like Chicago where one party has such a stranglehold that that's useless.

So given that you aren't going to get much for your money anyway, you might as well try and make sure that they take as little of it as possible.

>muh corrupt metropolitan with 1.5m welfare recipients

Chicago is 3rd in the nations GDP. It houses numerous international corporations. Your shitty infrastructure is a product of scale. Of course they're not going to close up 4 lanes on the interstate to repave it, diverting or congesting traffic for hours at a time for weeks out of a month. They certainly won't do such things dozens of times over until it becomes necessary.
