    Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos Announces $33 Million in Scholarships for 1000 Illegal Immigrants
    https://www.politico.com/story/2018/...arships-337924

    Jeff Bezos has already made about $10 billion in 2018, not even two weeks into the year
    According to Forbes, Bezos was listed as the wealthiest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of US$103 billion.

    Bezosí wealth is based mostly on his ownership of Amazon stock.

    Based on a report by financial research firm Cowen & Co.,estimates Amazon will save $723 million in 2018 and $1.3 billion in 2019 under the proposed tax bill and more in following years.

    Amazon has not announced any worker bonuses or wage increases due to GOP tax plan

    His portfolio of charitable work is quite small. In June of 2017, Bezos took to Twitter to request suggestions from users on philanthropic efforts he should take part in. ďIím thinking I want much of my philanthropic activity to be helping people in the here and now, 'short term', at the intersection of urgent need and lasting impact,Ē

    A blessing and burden

    In the years since the company began buying and leasing tremendous amounts of land in the cityís core, housing costs have skyrocketed here, and so has homelessness. Planned improvements to public transit to shuttle all those new people around the city have lagged far behind the growth. And in a city that once prided itself on its egalitarianism, some blame Amazon for widening the gap between rich and poor.

    In 2014, Bezos was named World's Worst Boss by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC)

    "Jeff Bezos represents the inhumanity of employers who are promoting the North American corporate model."

    An surprisingly there is little respect for President Johnson. He accomplished a lot on paper but you never hear him discussed when people think of the best presidents.
    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    Show me because I know you are lying. Johnson never lied and insulted people as many times the way Trump has. Even Trump's supporters have to result to lying to cover for their boy. It getting to a point even our allies don't want Trump to visit their country or congressional members want him on their campaign trail.

    The U.S. is in the absence of big businesses in the marijuana industry

    According to leading cannabis researcher ArcView, the North American legal weed medical market grew by 34% in 2016 to $6.9 billion, and it should reach an estimated $21.6 billion by 2021. This would represent a five-year compound annual growth rate of 26%, and it's a big reason marijuana stock investors have piled into this budding industry.

    Of all the burgeoning marijuana markets, none has been more impressive than Canada. Having legalized medicinal weed back in 2001, the Canadian medical pot industry, which is overseen by Health Canada, has been operating on all cylinders. A statement from Health Canada in May 2017 noted that the number of registered patients was growing at roughly 10% a month, with a small handful of growers, such as Aphria (NASDAQOTH: APHQF) and MedReleaf (NASDAQOTH: MEDFF), reporting marginal full-year profits solely because of medical sales.

    Americans support marijuana legalization across race, gender, and almost all age groups and political parties except for Republicans. 62 percent of Republican voters oppose marijuana legalization, and only 33 percent support it

    58 percent of Americans think all marijuana should be legalized, and 91 percent believe medical marijuana should be legal, 70 percent of voters oppose enforcing federal marijuana laws.

    Sessions, as it turns out, may be turning into the focus of marijuana advocatesí frustrations, as only 14 percent of Americans say they have a favorable opinion of him, while 47 percent see him unfavorably, and 37 percent say they donít know enough about him to form an opinion according to Quinnipiac University Poll

    Itís important to note that Sessions himself isnít ordering a federal crackdown. He just gave local U.S. attorneys the right to do so if they found it was warranted.

    Arcview Media estimates that legal marijuana sales once all the numbers are in for 2017 will be $10 billion.

    Off -topic, I know, but Amazon is the new Satan (it is downright insidious -- a seductive but ultimately destructive force).

    Back on topic: Trump knows that ratings are everything (approval is a different story). And to keep the ratings up, he has to increase the shock value until the shows finally burns out.

    This is how far he's come in a year; imagine how the next three play out.

    In 2017, Trumpís first year in office, there was ďa reversal of the three-year upward trendĒ of Americansí well-being. Overall well-being among U.S. adults has declined substantially on par with the lower level recorded in 2014.

    Also, U.S. life expectancy declines for the first time since 1993

    this is what we're dealing with

    Libs like Cooper are fake crying over it for higher ratings meanwhile Cons search deep in the history book to find someone comparably as bad.
