Sometimes, no…make it all the time, it’s really cool to be the richest dude in the world – you get to say dumb things like this and it’s taken seriously:

Well, he really didn’t lay out how the rocket company plans to help get us there. Instead, he laid out fresh guano, Bezos style, where a trillion humans in the solar system one day, some day, or who knows for sure, wasn’t mentioned, but he sure is proud that his company will be assisting the U.S. Air force to develop a domestic launch system prototype, and who would have thunk it but Blue Origin will be netting a scant $500 million off the deal.
But wait, there’s more fresh droppings from Bezos:
“I know everybody’s very conflicted about the current politics in this country and so on. This country is a gem,” Bezos said. “This is a great country. And it does need to be defended.”
Yeah, everybody’s conflicted about current politics…and so on – you know, those mundane problems of many working for your company trying to etch out a living on $15 an hour and you make $4,474,85 an hour. But you know how it is for these guys – one day they’re on top, the next day they’re more on top.
And we’re not quite sure how one gets from predicting we’ll have 1 trillion humans out in the solar system someday to slapping himself on the back, with $500 million extra in the coffers via the Department of Defense, but he’s Jeff Bezos, and he can say about any stupid thing that enters his mind – because, he’s Jeff Bezos.
And his stupidity and heartlessness isn’t just contained with his latest explanation of how the solar system might be littered with discarded Amazon boxes in the future – here are a few of his more deliciously turdy meanderings from his huge mind directed to those of the unclean who work for this shyster:
“Are you lazy or just incompetent?”
“I’m sorry, did I take my stupid pills today?”
“Do I need to go down and get the certificate that says I’m CEO of the company to get you to stop challenging me on this?”
[After reviewing the annual plan from the supply chain team] “I guess supply chain isn’t doing anything interesting next year.”
[After reading a start-of-meeting memo] “This document was clearly written by the B team. Can someone get me the A team document? I don’t want to waste my time with the B team document.”

But sometimes, you just have to be a jerk to make it in corporate America, right? And it seems to you have to be a jerk to make it in the political arena and mainstream media, quite like it’s been for far too many painful years to remember.
Capitalism knows only one color: that color is green; all else is necessarily subservient to it, hence, race, gender and ethnicity cannot be considered within it. – Thomas Sowell
And don’t forget to vote in November to ensure everything remains just as it has been.
