The wacky left has made it so onerous for businesses to operate in Seattle that Amazon is looking for a more friendly business environment for a “second” headquarters.
This, naturally, sent Kshama Sawant, a socialist Seattle city councilwoman, into a rage.
She issued a statement comparing Amazon to
Boeing. She said billion dollar firms hold the region “hostage” for tax breaks. The solution, Sawant says, is to “unionize and to take these behemoths into democratic public ownership.”
Thanks to comments like that, Boeing has moved its headquarters to Chicago. Is it any wonder that Amazon is looking for a “second” headquarters where they won’t be threatened with “democratic public ownership.”
