    I am by no means a liberal.

    I think you fail to comprehend my reasoning.

    Amazon wants options.
    They're looking at Toronto, San Jose, Boston, and Washington DC, because Seattle is too expensive?

    So far as I know they are not looking at anything, they have only just now asked for them who want to host Amazon to submit some guidance on what their bid would look like if they were to make one.

    suspect cost of living is not a primary factor
    main mover - based on the RFP - appears to be in what location would young, ambitious, high-skilled people be willing to move to for a good job

    The media has lost it's mandate to report honestly. Should they improve or go away?

    It's hard to match the burning, visceral hate a liberal can bring to bear.

    And regarding the move - it also give them traditional leverage over Seattle and the state of Washington if they get all uppity and try to raise their taxes or regulate them.

    Or they might be trying to quietly and surreptitiously slip away from Seattle.

    I doubt that. Seattle is a really nice place to live, much nicer than San Francisco. Most of the brass are "aged in" with kids, and extended local family. But you never know. Maybe they will move to Canada.

    I think that's exactly the plan.

    There business model is based on reinvesting everything back into the business. Their warehouses are brutally efficient places. Costs are low because they have potentially the most efficient logistic model in the business of retail
    to provide the Trump campaign with some official documents and information that would incriminate Hillary and her dealings with Russia and would be very useful to your father. This is obviously very high level and sensitive information but is part of Russia and its government's support for Mr. Trump - Rob Gold Stone to Trump Junior
