Bezos And His Crazy Dick
[Comments enabled]

This is utterly amusing to watch....

Jeff Bezos watched his marriage detonate after he got publicly caught sticking his dick where it didn't belong.

The media, and Jeff, want to make this about "extortion" claims aimed at American Media -- which owns The National Enquirer.

Well, maybe he has a point and maybe he doesn't, but I have zero sympathy for that ********** (Bezos, that is.)

Jeff has always thought the norms and the rules of civilized society don't apply to him.  Being rich has a way of doing that.  He, like Zuckerpig, would love to ditch the truth and history, but you can't change what's already happened.

Very early on in Amazon's life, when I was running MCSNet, they spammed my userbase.  Yes, spammed.  As in unsolicited commercial email.  I know they did it factually because not only did I get a number of complaints from customers they actually spammed my email, personally.

I put the firm in my ISP's default "Blackball" email list.  We were the first ISP in the area with a user-configurable spam blocker that any user could override, but which by default was active on all our user accounts.  It took mere minutes after I did that before Amazon tried to raise hell with me, making all sorts of non-specific threats, but they got nowhere and were told to screw goats -- I had the spam they had sent to me, personally.

Somewhat later, when the company expanded into "other than books" as I've pointed out in these pages multiple times, Beelzebezos adopted a tactic that I had run past my corporate attorneys in the 1990s and was warned it wouldn't pass any sort of close examination -- setting up corporate structures to own LLCs in other states which had no assets, then claiming no taxable nexus (and thus no need to collect the various taxes on goods and services sold there that would otherwise be taxable.)  Amazon ran this same crap for years until states threatened to sue; it is notable I cannot find any record anywhere of him being willing to go to court and defend his actions, likely because he knew damn well he'd lose.  But as he "folded" in each successive state the state still got screwed out of all the taxes not collected from the time he started doing this up until he folded and the in-state businesses he bankrupted were still gone; there was never an admission of guilt nor payment of any of the back taxes, nor any compensation to the other small firms in a given state that he screwed blind.

In other words he traded on being rich and that the states wouldn't indict him for criminal tax evasion.  The laws apply to thee but not to me, said Beelzebezos -- right up until he had to defend what he'd done, at which point he said "oh, ok, I'll pay."

You don't fold if you think you're right and are convinced you'll win -- you fight.  If you fold then in fact you're admitting you never believed what you were doing was legal in the first place!

Apparently this same attitude extended into his home and bedroom.  Being rich meant he didn't care about his oath of fidelity to his wife.  If he didn't want to have that exclusive arrangement with her anymore he had two honorable choices -- negotiate an open sexual relationship, assuming she'd agree or file for divorce, at which point his obligation to keep his dick in his pants except with her expires.

But rather than take either of the honorable paths available to him when he found himself sexually frustrated in his marriage he decided instead to screw someone cute and cuddly on the side.

Someone with the sort of profile that Beelzebezos has in public would have to be insane to think he could keep that sort of thing quiet forever, and that nobody would find out.  In point of fact people did find out, and apparently some of them aren't too happy about it either, which led to the leak.

I have no idea if laws were broken with regard to the Enquirer, but the fact of the matter is that if Beelzebezos hadn't been a sleazebag in the first place and had instead chosen to handle his desires in an honorable way there would have been no story and no opportunity.  But then again if you've watched Beelzebezos' public actions with regard to how he treats those he deems "lesser", whether they're customers of an ISP or employees in his warehouses none of this should surprise you.

The only thing people like Beelzebezos care about is getting caught.  In that regard he is no different than a garden-variety bank robber or thief.

I have no sympathy for Jeff whatosever.  Gross hubris and abuse of staff (which, it has been alleged, is also the point of all the complicated LLC structures -- it makes it much harder, if not impossible, for employees in those warehouses to sue and get anywhere) is hardly an admirable quality.

There is a reason that Sam Walton, years ago, had a policy when he ran WalMart long before it was a "thing" -- if he found out you were cheating on your spouse you were fired instantly, no exceptions.

Why?

Because if you'll screw the person who you took an oath before God (or state) to be faithful to you'll screw anyone and everyone, including your employer.

I just don't understand the hubris.

Bezos of all people should know that all e communications are subject to getting out in the wrong hands. Yet he still sexted.

I just don't get people.

Yeah, I remember Amazon spamming me in the 90s. It's the reason I avoided them for years after that, until they became too big to ignore.

Now I'm back to avoiding them because I don't like their new business practices and their prices aren't particularly good anyway.

His company attacks anyone that competes with him. They use back door tricks to try to get product that the competition sells and then undercut them on Amazon. He is in the business of destroying people and their businesses. I love the fact that he has been outed. When people wake up and realize that Amazon isn't the panacea that they think it is, they will start shopping smartly and not for convenience only.

Bezos IS pretty much immune. He won't face any legal consequence, ever. Also, since he likely is sociopathic, any public/private shame normal people would feel is nonexistent within him.

great post and observation.

character matters until it does not, and sadly you are making my point. all of his unethical and illegal actions are the reasons for his success. in his mind and those around him as well as those observing (The most important.) this little thing where he got caught is nothing in comparison to the massive success and life options that he has due to his wrongful actions.

personally if i did the illegal and unethical and immoral things that were possible and that i was capable of doing in the business world my profits and opportunities would have been very much higher. there was no complaint here as i was able to succeed sufficiently. however, there was a trend line that society was set upon and the Bezos of the world as well as the smaller actors and everyone else took the lessons to heart. the personal morality culture was lost.

the one bright spot is that just look at what he traded in his still kind of cute wife for, yuck. talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel. a man with his money could pay for much better and definitely attract more worthy candidates. this is observed more often than not and many really successful bad boy break the rules businessmen that i know just seem to descend into disgusting if not other ****-ups not worth the grief. to quote Anthony Bourdain's book, "Kitchen Confidential," describing the rich men being served the sub-standard food at some high end place just for them, "Captains of industry being served garbage at the top of the world."

as an aside regarding middle aged men who are still married which includes a lot of the rich dirtbags i know. "the only thing more pathetic than a divorced middle aged man is one who is not," Whitehat. some people's lives are their own punishments. you should see some of the slop that otherwise successful dirtbag men get to live with. this Bezos actually had a good situation appearances wise and somehow desired to take a step or two down. perhaps rich dirtbags subconsciously know that they are **** and desire some misery as punishment. Freud would have a ball with this one.

There are two ways to be rich: One is by acquiring much, and the other is by desiring little.

I used to sell a little bit on Amazon. About 3 years ago they closed my seller account because I "wasn't selling enough." I also saw cases where they were actually undercutting their own customers by selling identical items cheaper. I let my Amazon Prime expire and stopped buying on their site altogether. 90%+ of the time I can find what I'm looking for on eBay at a lower price and no sales tax.

Behind every hot chick is a dude sick of her ****.

I don't know, a chick who flies helicopters sounds a hell of a lot more interesting than a woman who's singular achievement on wikipedia other than marrying Bezos appears to be founding an anti-bullying organization.

I think I know who I'd rather bang, personally.

Some of us get stuck in a relationship that sours over time, I can attest to this with my own experience. But I never would have cheated on my x-wife as not only it would have been a terrible thing to do to her, but to my children, my parents and her parents. People that I care about would have been extremely disappointed. I wonder if this is becoming more of the exception than the rule. I hope not.

Off topic, but do we know how the situation got like that, ie did he wander off, or did he get cut off. Doesn't matter though, either way he loses. smiley

Doesn't really matter @Xorbe.

If you're unhappy enough to go poke some other chick file for divorce first. Then go have as much fun as you wish.

That's the right way to do it.

The only reason he didn't do it that way was he thought he could do it and not get caught.

haha

some are figuring out the fraud that amazon is

bozo's soon to be exwife was also amazon's first lead accountant during the time that fraud was rampent in the U.S.

fraud recipe:

Some enron then throw in some krispy kreme and finish with a whole lot of MCIWorldcom

When something is too good to be true it most likely is

walmart was busted with fake online orders but walmart did not have fullfilment by walmart to hide the returns

You know, if you're the "richest guy in the world," you'd think that he could at least aim for the hotter side of the hot/crazy matrix.

I have seen the theory that it is an excuse to get divorced and have to sell stock. Apparently an Enron executive Lou Pai did something similar right before Enron blew up.

One might have to reconsider all of the apparent "stupidity/idiocy" Bezos has pursued over the years - could it all have been part of a greater master plan to maximize current assets and then cash out to bail before things go into the toilet? Does not sound like a "way out in left-field"-ish theory at all.

Yep. He just might have been playing 4-D chess while the rest of us were laughing at him because obviously the company was horribly over-valued. After all, what's the problem with losing tens of billions of wealth on paper in order to end up with many tens of billions in after tax cash? Crazy like a fox??

Ckaminski -

I never intended to imply he was stupid. I thought the implication of the underlining of apparent and the enclosure in quotes of stupidity/idiocy would be very clear.
