Amazon is a criminal enterprise, and Jeff Bezos is a thief that belongs in jail…

Yes you read that right, and my standard retort  to the question of “this is Amazon how may I help you?”  is now “If you can find Jeff Bezos please kick him in the balls”. That usually sets them back a bit, and then I continue to explain:

I am a very computer literate person, and avoided “intellectual property rights” like Amazon’s Kindle books for almost 15 years, because I knew what I would be getting into, so  against  my better judgement I made the Kindle plunge…..
.
The very fist week, I could not get my bought, and paid for property to download into the Windows 7,  Kindle reader, I spend 4 entire mornings with the incompetent Amazon support staff  that took 2 days to   tell me to turn off my VPN  because their   half baked app would not work with a VPN.  I spent 2 more days with tech support, and in the end Amazon stole over 6 hours of my time with no compensation, in my effect to use my own bought and paid for property.

Fast forward to last night… I was reading a very important book necessary for my vocation, last night when I decided to see what the process of loaning out a Kindle book looked like.  So for test purposes I “loaned” the book to my mother by sending her an email that she could either accept or refuse. ( I knew ahead of time she would NEVER accept this invitation and read this book.

What happened immediately was that I no longer had access to my book!
To give an analogy this would be like me calling you and agreeing to loan you my book if you wanted it. But before you could even answer, or accept, a thief by the name of Jeff Bezos sneaks into my house, and steals my personal property.  I am not allowed to read my own book, and you have not even decided whether you want to read it or not.   What boggles my mind is why the idiots at Amazon did not include a button that would take the loan back.   If someone does not take you  up on your loan that you are still denied the use  of your property by Jeff Bezos.  This is the very definition of theft.

Anyhow I spent an uncompensated  hour on the phone last night with tech support who manged to get the  book back on my laptop.
This morning I tried to open the book on my smartphone only to find it unavailable.   I just spend 2 hours and 5 phone calls to get this issue resolved.

I find Amazon’s actions to be those of a thief, and I am in the process of filing a complaint with the Missouri Attorney generals office (for all of the help that that are.)

Stay tuned to updates….

11/15/17 12:30 am – Just got my new phone turned on yesterday as replacing the screen on the old one cost as much as phone does.  I just tried to fire up the kindle app on the new phone, and read “MY” book, and guess what?  Yup… that low life criminal SOB Jeff Bezos has stolen my book, and my time again (something that you and I would go to jail for).  I can’t read my book now without spending a lot of time on the phone with Amazon tech support. This is how criminal these large corperations have become.  I would bet that this story continues…..they are not done screwing me. This is what I foresaw and  why I eschewed this technology for 15 years. and yes I still fantasize about kicking Jeff Bezos in the balls.

UPDATE:

If you do your due diligence you are likely to come to the conclusion like many have that Jeff Bezos is a globalist and thus the mortal enemy of anyone that believes in the principles that this country was founded upon.
His dealing with the NSA borders on treason IMHO. A capital offense….

Lets not forget the  criminal theft of both Animal Farm and Brave New World on readers tablets.  This was not IMHO an accident, but a clear message about the nefarious nature of these ebooks, and that Amazon, as part of the New World Order’s infrastructure, was going to take full advantage of it.

UPDATE 12/1/17:
Paid for a Kindle book. Twice in fact. It still has not shown up, so I can’t read it.
So in addition to the cost of the book, I am going to have to spend  $20 of my time tied up with tech support to get access to my own property.   Do you see a pattern here yet?

2nd UPDATE 12/1/17

This time Amazon, that seems to own all of the books that i paid for, is now not letting me read one of my cook books, saying that it is registered on too many devices.  Who knows how much time it is going to take to jump this latest hurtle put between me and my property?

FWIW I am still unable to read any of my books on my laptop using the Windows 7 application.  and that is after spending 4 full mornings with their tech support and getting no where.

Amazon preventing me from reading a book…. AGAIN

UPDATE 12/2/17:

The ebook I purchased last night has still not shown up and in addition  when I tried to open a book on my smartphone I found out that the obtuse, confusing,  interface to administer the licenses that Amazon has in the Web interface, deleted all of the books on my smartphone.  Then when I tried to open one of my books  I was greeted again with a license issue, that could only be addressed on the obtuse web interface where you again guess at what devices you are deleting books on.

UPDATE 12/16/17:

Two weeks into having a Fire 8, many of my books are still not even halfway downloaded. The device  has been on a fast WiFi network for the entire time.
I should sent both of my devices back,  but then I am stuck with a dozen books that I paid a pretty penny for with no way to comfortably read them, while on the go. Not that I can actually read them if they are not downloaded.
My desire to “kick Jeff Bezos in the balls” grows with each day of being urinated on by Amazon, and being told that “it’s raining”, that I am not being urinated on….

———-

I hope the above, which is only a small portion of the issues that I have had with “Kindle:” books,  gives you some insight at to why I think that Jeff Bezos needs kicked in the  balls.

Here are 2 pictures that document the above few paragraphs:

Amazon defaulting  ebook purchase to  a gift purchase, even thought 99% of the purchase are likely for the person themselves.  If I didn’t know any better, and didn’t know what an honest, integrity driven company that Amazon was, I might think that they did this on purpose to generate more income by being dishonest. Most people making this mistake would likley not get the refund as I did, because it is too much trouble.

On the web page where your devices are registered   I have 13 devices registered , with no way to really tell what is what, and I think Amazon likes it that way.  In addition it looks like Jeff Bezos limits you to reading your content on  only 2 devices A fact they try hard to obfuscate.   I happen to have 4 laptops, 2 of which I use regularly, 2 tablets, and an off the cell network smart phone that I use in the kitchen as a media server.  Amazon has created a real nightmare for many of it’s users.  I own the books BUT I can’t read them on my devices without getting to a PC and then deregistering them on devices that I often can not tell what they are, which then creates more down stream problems.  Today I had to spend another  45 minutes on the phone to address the current issues. I also learned that Amazon is now not supporting their stand alone app on Windows 7. How can you read books when they stop support for the app that you want to use?  Like I said at the beginning, Amazon looks like  a criminal organization. It certainly does not treat it’s customers well at all, in respecting THEIR property rights.  Much of their actions are guided by their intellectual property rights concerns, but you do not solve them by stomping all over your customers property rights.  I have some very good ideas on how they could solve the issue but will keep them to myself, unless they are willing to pay me as a consultant. Amazon has stolen enough of my time already.

Seymour business owner assaults customer

Originally published 11/9/17


Read the comments below.  This is still  way too upsetting for me to be able to objectively write about for awhile.  The attacker seemed to  exhibit a psychotic break .  It was a very unsettling sight to say the least. I have never seen a human being act anything like the attacker did right before he assaulted me.

I was in the store at the counter asking questions about a military helmet, having some civil banter about our military when Mr. Kelley exhibited bizarre  behavior, similar to the descriptions of a  psychotic break.  He ranted on about the media figure Alex Jones and his “followers”, right before the attack.  Ironically  the Infowars News organization has  been reporting   attacks on people for their free speech  by mentally unstable people, on the left.

If you know anything about PTSD type psychology, events like this can hang with you….  I will  likely be dealing with both physical and  emotional injury from this attack  for some time to come.

Update 11/9/17

It seems that 3 crimes were committed yesterday:

1.) I was assaulted in the store near the door as I was leaving. ( From past experience, I suspect  the Seymour police department will not   take this crime seriously, and won’t even look at the store video of this incident.)

2.) A very sentimental hat from a family trip to Jerusalem, was stolen, as it was knocked off during the assault.

3.) I was threatened (with implied violence after just  being violently assaulted) to leave a public space as shown in the video.

4.) I also suspect a 4th crime. I suspect that the military helmet that I was looking at was stolen from the US military.  I don’t think that the US government gives soldiers $600 helmets that the tax payer has paid for. I would be very curious as to how this store came upon this item. It was way too much current issue for me to think that it could a legitimate  surplus item.

Pawn shops are known by police to have  a high incidence of criminal activity. I tend to believe that assesment after my unfortunate experience in the K Trading post in Seymour.

UPDATE 12/3/17 As expected I have not been contacted in any manner by the Seymour Police Department.  They are are a  total waste of our tax dollars IMHO.

UPDATE 12/16/17
I still have not been contacted by the Seymour police department.  Anyone that helps cover up a  crime is in my opinion a criminal, and the Seymour Police department seems to be a criminal enterprise in this respect. Especially in light of what I view as irrefutable evidence from this shops security system that a crime was committed.

It appears that they not interested in real crimes, or are grossly incompetent, but woe to anyone that drives through their town and has not paid the king tribute by having a little sticker on their license plate, as I once did.   I was both physically, and psychologically terrorized by one of their terrorists in a blue costume.  It was beyond a doubt the most terrifying day of my life. Someday I will be able to write about it,  as it was so upsetting that here months after it happened, I can not bring myself to go there.

Tire Nazis Eric Peters on what they’ve done to you.

If you’ve gone to get new tires recently, you may have already dealt with the latest outcropping of technocratic busybodyism: The scanning of your car’s electronic ear tag, its Vehicle Identification Number or VIN.

The VIN is a bar code – literally – just like the one on the packages of stuff you buy at the supermarket or anywhere else that’s corporate. The VIN specifically identifies your car – including every last detail about it, such as the engine/transmission it came with, the color it was painted and the tires it came equipped with from the factory.

And now it is being used to identify you….. Read More

Subjective Safety

By Eric Peters, August 30, 2017

 
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

If they were at least consistent, you might be persuaded that Our Controllers were truly concerned about our safety. As opposed to using “safety” as the pretext for controlling us.

Not infrequently, to the detriment of our safety.

There are many examples to prove the point but the latest is the push for congressional approval of an exemption for automated cars from the federal safety requirements that apply to not-automated cars. Specifically, an exemption from the regs which forbid the sale of automated cars that lack back-up controls which a human driver can use to prevent the car from doing something manifestly unsafe because its automated systems have experienced a technical hiccup.

Having some way to intervene when an automated car runs amok doesn’t seem like a bad idea – assuming Our Safety is the criteria  – especially given that automated cars haverun amok and given that the more of them there are in circulation, the more often this will happen – for the same reason you get more flat tires when there are 10 million cars out there driving around vs. 10 cars driving around.

It’s an odds game….. Read More

The Imbecile Tax Eric Peters on what’s next from the safety nazis

Grown-ups used to appreciate being treated as grown-ups, especially by other grown-ups. How is it that today’s grown-ups demand that they be treated like not-too-bright children?

This manifests all over but one obvious area is new cars. The latest example being what Nissan just announced it will be installing in at least one of its 2018 models – the Pathfinder SUV – and probably, inevitably, the rest, too:

“Rear Door Alert.”

Its purpose? To remind Moo or Duh (or both of them, together) that Baby Finster is strapped into his seat back there and not to forget and leave him to roast like a pork loin while they go shopping for a new sail fawn……. READ MORE

OJ and Air Bags … vs. Oliver Schmidt

OJ – who almost certainly killed two people and definitely got away with it – didn’t get away with participating in an armed robbery and kidnapping.

He got 33 years, served about 9 – and is scheduled to be released this fall.

Oliver Schmidt – the VW engineer who “cheated” Uncle – is looking at 169 years. He didn’t kill anyone or even trip them up. Yet if convicted, he will be taken out of circulation for life.

Several of them.

Who would you rather have running loose?

 OJ? Or Schmidt?

It gives you a sense of the government’s priorities……
