Amazon Has Joined the Borg
Went to Amazon.com to look for that Kindle gun smithing book that folks here had been posting about and found this (at the time) being hustled on their home page:
Amazon.com: President Barack Obama: The Kindle Singles Interview (Kindle Single) eBook: David Blum: Kindle Store
Certainly made me question all the money I'd dumped on them over the years, and maybe I should start looking for an alternative.
So while stumbling around the web, feeling somewhat used and abused and betrayed, I found this article by Victor Hansen that I thought reflected my thoughts somewhat. No answers, just affirmation.

So now I take a deep breath and wade back into the fight. What else can you do?
They sell books. The ones they get the biggest kickback from, they push the hardest. I get ads from them all the time, and if you buy a book, then you get bombarded with similar stuff. Gotta take the good with the bad.
I'd much rather buy from Amazon - which stays fairly neutral and is extremely well organized - than from Barnes & Noble, which is a big supporter of the Commie-in-Chief and is completely screwed up organization-wise.
I'm so sick of these.pinkos. especially the dudes.with all the hair gel. I always wanna give them a nuggie and $#@! up their hair.
I appreciate the opinions. Nice to hear that Amazon was there for our troops.
Guess I'll simmer down. Just tired of Obama getting a free pass to blow smoke up our rear ends.
