#0 ; beg and plead for Amazon to change its mind.

I swear some of these morons canít see the forest for the trees...

ďLetís kill job growth and infrastructure investment simply because itís a big company...Ē

If these people had a legitimate grievance, that can be discussed and settled. But all I saw were morons conflating Amazon with Walmart and other big box retailers.

The retail world is changing hard and fast. Everything is going online. I havenít bought a physical PC game in about three to five years. Everything has been through Steam or Origin.

Staples, my last job, I give them five years tops before it collapses. It was actually bought out and taken private while I was there and half the stores in the city were closed.

With Toys R Us gone, there is now only a GameStop nearby that is even remotely convenient for me to fulfill my geeky needs.

And donít even get me started on my comic book collection. Thatís a ride on the L to Union square if I want to buy in person (I collect Marvel trade paperbacks instead of individual issues).

Unless there is some sort of massive shift in the other direction, companies like Amazon are going to be the future and to expect them to just lay down and go away is ludicrous.
