"The central doctrine of Christianity, then, is not that God is a bastard. It is, in the words of the late Dominican theologian Herbert McCabe, that if you don’t love you’re dead, and if you do, they’ll kill you."--Terry Eagleton

"It is impossible for me to say in my book one word about all that music has meant in my life. How then can I hope to be understood?--Ludwig Wittgenstein

Too much Diet Coke in his diet?

Funny, nobody at Trump's Twitter feed raised this question (or not funny, depending):  what else is the Post Office for?

USPS was suffering from declining revenues for years.  Amazon has been one solution, as it (of course) pays USPS to deliver packages (as opposed to paying UPS, FedEx, etc.; which it may well use, too.).

I mean, isn't USPS the "Delivery Boy" for the country?  I understand even Congress and the White House use them that way.

It would be hard put to think of an easier way for him to gain even more enemies than to take away their or make it cost more or, heavens, do away with free shipping. Well, maybe destroy the VA.

One gets the feeling he doesn't quite get what this is about, Trump's version of Daddy Bush being amazed at a check out scanner.

All the news says Trump's buddies are angry that Amazon is shutting down shopping malls (not such a bad thing, IMHO, though the one near me seems to be thriving, which is an annual problem in December). Trump also doesn't like WaPo's coverage of him, and what's the point of being POTUS if you can't punish your enemies?

It's not clear what he would do to Amazon, but he's spoiling for a way to do it. My sympathies aren't with Amazon so much as the rule of law, which is set to be the real casualty of this administration.
