    I can't figure out why New York was on Amazon's list in the first place. Almost anywhere else is more business-friendly.

        The south had the advantage 159 years ago and the NYers forced government into an unnecessary war to eliminate the competition. Of course, as looters, they blamed the defeated competition.

          I doubt that any former slave would have agreed with you. Nor did Ayn Rand. She wrote:

          "Capitalism cannot work with slave labor. It was the agrarian, feudal South that maintained slavery. It was the industrial, capitalistic North that wiped it out—as capitalism wiped out slavery and serfdom in the whole civilized world of the nineteenth century.

          "What greater virtue can one ascribe to a social system than the fact that it leaves no possibility for any man to serve his own interests by enslaving other men? What nobler system could be desired by anyone whose goal is man’s well-being?" --from Capitalism: The Unknown Ideal

            So Ayn wasn't infallible and she bought the false history written by the Lincoln lovers. Had she done the research herself she would have changed her opinion about the reason for the war. Slavery was an abomination but it wasn't the reason nor rational justification for the war.
            But she had a larger task and she did it well.

              You have no idea what Rand's opinion would have been if she had "done the research herself." We do know, however, what her actual opinion was. And we do know her general views on what constitutes a justifiable war. Abolishing the institution of slavery certainly qualifies.

      Follow the money. Or, actually follow the promises of less money paid in taxes. Meaning less in government coffers. Meaning less for government dependency programs. Money that would be ultimately extracted from producers.

    "Ocasio-Cortez tweeted that "anything is possible," taking a victory lap upon hearing the news."

    That there is weapons-grade stupid.

    Based on what's been published, there would have been 25K jobs with an average salary of $150K. Yes, I know some salaries will be higher, and some will be lower. But I defy this liberal lunatic to explain to those 25,000 people who won't have the chance to get those jobs how an average annual salary of $150,000 is "worker exploitation"--AOC's words, not mine.

    The idiot voters chose an airhead radical, who never does her homework. Then Pocahontas jumped in supporting her. Can people ask for worse, if they truly want and need jobs? This one can be laid at the feet of stupid women politicians. NYC had the diversity of talent, that won them the hhq, but now it will go where maybe some of those people will move to get those jobs. Cortez just opens her mouth and and brains fall out. She never discusses thgs with local people or politicians, always just about her being radical. Marx let his children starve, while he ran off at the mouth rther than work, this time Cortez will let other people's children live in poverty. Keep your mitts off the environment unless you want to be exposed there too.

    Cuomo was just trying to promote himself when he said he got Amazon by giving them 3 billion in tax breaks over 10 years,. AOC goes nuts that the rich corps are getting tax breaks. Not fair. .

    What Cuomo failed to mention is that Amazon was going to pay 27 billion in taxes from which the 3 would be taken.

    So NY is now losing 24 Billion in tax revenue and the jobs and the tourism.

      Cuomo was defeated by his own contradictions. He and his fellow democrats love to condemn "tax breaks for the rich", but he is willing to offer them in order to claim credit for "economic progress." The progressives called him on his hypocrisy, and rightly so.

    I just heard the multiple businesses have taken out an ad in the New Yort newspapers asking Amazon to reconsider its pullout of NYC. If Bezos is smart (he has shown no sign of being dumb) he should stand firm with his decision and avoid NYC like he would the plague/
