Doesn’t it seem weird that these massive, PUBLICLY traded, companies are so easily allowed to make bias left-based whims as they see fit? I know, I know… it’s their business and we just have to put up with it, right? Well… as I emphasized before, what if it’s a public company? Where different people from many different backgrounds own a piece of their pie?

At the same time, however, Amazon is keeping tabs on you, monitoring your purchases, pushing other products on you and, in the form of the hideous Alexa, listening in on you while you sleep. Throw in the electronic snooping of Facebook, Google and your iPhone, and we’re heading for an Orwellian nightmare the shape of which is just now becoming apparent, even on the Left:
SILICON VALLEY’S TAX-AVOIDING, JOB-KILLING, SOUL-SUCKING MACHINE
Four companies dominate our daily lives unlike any other in human history: Amazon, Apple, Facebook, and Google. We love our nifty phones and just-a-click-away services, but these behemoths enjoy unfettered economic domination and hoard riches on a scale not seen since the monopolies of the gilded …..
