Sites were down yesterday that aren't normally down with 502 errors.

Yep, Bezos plays the long game.

Just heard on the news that despite his Prime Day problems, Jeff Bezos is still the richest man in the world.
I can just hear a certain former member grumbling about how much money he could have made if he could have run his business in the red for as long a Bezos did.

Speaking to one of my son's this AM and..
Yep in his geek section of the internet... that's what they are all saying, DoS, DNS attack.
It affected the AWS area, too...that was the key he said.
It wasn't so much an attack on Amazon or it's sales as an attack on Bezos, owner of Washington Post.


Still staying in my little Amazon corner in FL and still thankful my sales were and continue to be good.
Second that!
Financial Advisor meeting last year he and I discussed the pharmaceutical deal along with how this would enable Bezos wish to partner with J. P. Morgan and Buffet for a new healthcare insurance provider.
Laying the groundwork so to speak.
First offering to employees, then to 3rd party sellers, then the public.
We discussed alot more than the above and.....

Fast forward this year.
Financial Advisor meeting to discuss yada yada yada and began to discuss how much of we talked about came true in the last year.
Let's just say what he and I discussed was 98% correct.
Whole Foods, Toys R Us, acquiring pharmaceutical companies, etc etc

In his sector, he said this acquisition is another layer moving forward.
He and my accountant don't even charge me an hourly fee to discuss Amazon (and ebay, brick and mortar vs ecommerce) with me.
Hubster sits there and enjoys listening to us throw out numbers, names, articles, etc to one another.
Not that I'm any kinda soothsayer, but I've just been doing this so very lonnnnnng. 
My views as a seller, what I've been approved for, what I've come across, what new laws are on the books and how it affects we ecommerce/brick and mortar sellers.

We have predictions for next will be interesting to see how this moves forward.
The pill pack purchase alone for FL and nursing homes/assisted livings/independent living for seniors.
Big Business!

They're selling fairly well on eBay. Once first of the year rolls around, I'll go through the inventory I have here and see what to do. I might get rid of them then but I want one more Christmas to try and make some cash.

Maybe I'll do what other sellers were doing Monday morning before Prime Day started: Jack up the prices.

I figure wait for the state(s) to demand the filing by smaller sellers. Which, will eventually come, but I don't see a reason to make it happen any sooner than necessary.

Put them all in a pile. Pour lighter fluid on the pile. Light match. Put lit match on pile. Burn baby, burn!
