Amazon “Reconsidering” Moving HQ to New York

Good day all. Last year, Amazon began looking for a new home for their corporate headquarters. They gave many reasons, but the real reason was quite simple. They were tired of dealing with the Communists running Seattle.

Barking Moonbat

Late last year, , Jeff Bezos and Amazon announced they were going to move to New York and employ some 25000 people. The Communists, with that loud mouthed moron, Alexandria Occasional-Cortex, began badmouthing the whole idea. Now Amazon is thinking of canceling the move, along with all the new jobs that New York so desperately needs. Here are the details from Fox News:

Amazon is reconsidering opening part of its second headquarters in New York after fierce opposition from lawmakers, according to a new report.

The Washington Post, which is also owned by Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos, reported the Seattle-based tech giant is reconsidering the plan and has not leased or purchased any office space for the project. The report cited two people familiar with the company’s thinking.

The question is whether it’s worth it if the politicians in New York don’t want the project, especially with how people in Virginia and Nashville have been so welcoming,” one person familiar with the company’s plans told the Post.

This shows just how moronic the CommuNazis, formally Democrats, have become. New York is losing population, and more importantly to the rulers of the state, taxpayers. When Amazon announced the plan to come to New York, they were going to bringing good paying jobs and a lot of them. That would have meant more taxes for the moonbats to waste. Now? It looks like Amazon is gong to say “Well, since you don’t want us here, see ya!”

The Post added that no specific plans to abandon New York have been made and it’s possible Amazon could use them as a threat to pressure New York lawmakers. According to a December Quinnipiac University poll, 57 percent of New York City residents support Amazon’s arrival in the region, compared to just 26 percent who oppose the deal, Fox Business reported.

The problem here, is that those 26% are the ones running New York right into the ground. They claim to care about the “Working Class,” but as we’ve been seeing in the last few months, the only thing they care about with regards to the working class is how much money they can lot from them.

Last month, New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson said no one should assume it’s a “done deal.” “I don’t think anyone should assume that this is a fait accompli, and that this is a done deal,” Johnson told Business Insider. “This is the beginning of a process where the public and the City Council and other elected officials are going to continue to seek answers and understand whether or not this is a good deal for New York City, or if we got played.”

There is no question that Amazon sought out a good deal. They would be remiss in their responsibility to their shareholders if they didn’t. Even if the tax breaks were a bit over the top, you also have to consider the ripple effect. 25K permanent jobs, and these wouldn’t have been minimum wage ones either, not to mention the thousands of construction jobs that would have opened up for the new buildings. (Or renovating old ones)

Amazon has taken heat from a range of public officials, including the aforementioned Ocasio-Cortez, as well as state Sen. Michael Gianaris and New York City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer.

Doing a small amount of research, it appears that Sen. Michael Gianaris has never worked in the Dreaded Private Sector. As for New York City Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer? He’s a typical political hack, and has also never held a real job in his life. (As near as I can tell) Living off the taxpayers is all they’ve ever done it seems. As for Occasional-Cortex? She’s just plain stupid.

Amazon said it would bring 25,000 full-time high-paying jobs, approximately $2.5 billion in Amazon investment and eventually 8 million square feet of office space to Long Island City as part of its investment announced in November. The Seattle-based company also said that it expects to generate “incremental tax revenue of more than $10 billion over the next 20 years as a result of Amazon’s investment and job creation.”

And, as I mentioned earlier, that doesn’t take into account the ripple effect of new taxpayers just waiting to have their wallets emptied by the Tax Fattened Hyenas in New York City and Albany, NY. Frankly, I think Amazon should just walk away from the deal. An awful lot of the reasons for choosing New York was due to the “Progressive thought processes” of Jeff Bezos. Now he’s finding out how quickly people he thought he could count on, since he was “One of them” will turn on him. I think that Virginia will be more than happy to ink a deal for the entire thing, no matter who ends up administering the state.
