Noted In Passing: It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

Amazon packages pile up after AWS outage spawns delivery havoc
… But ‘delivery havoc’ is sometimes not in the ‘non-delivery’ but in the delivery itself.

In other Christmas news: Cuomos’ Christmas Canceled Report: Chris Cuomo’s Book Canned by HarperCollins “The Cuomo boys are going down faster than Barack Obama at a Jussie Smollett slumber party or Kamala Harris on her first date with Willie Brown.”

    That Amazon delivery story is about the weirdest thing I have read in a very long time. It seems there is something going on here behind the scenes but I cannot imagine what that might be.

    As for Chris Cuomo’s magnum opus: Obviously he could never write anything like a book. He is clearly lacking in any talent whatsoever resembling the authorship of anything more robust than a “get well” card. These sort of “book” deals are one way the “higher powers” pay off someone who performed some service. Think of the books “written” by Hillary or Obama. Who reads such pap anyway? For whatever reason the Cuomo brothers are out of favor with their handlers.

    Sadly, I doubt the Cuomos will simply disappear entirely. They will show up again somewhere—of that you can be certain. Maybe at a children’s petting zoo or running a brothel in Acapulco.

    Fox Christmas Tree set on fire.

    I suspect that they had a few bucks leftover in the 2021 election fraud kitty and if they didn’t spend it on something; next year their budget would be cut.

    A lot of scamming and outright criminality in/and around everything amazon purchasing/selling and delivery these days. People buy stuff, return it, send other stuff back instead, the stuff is resold to someone else, over and over. A year ago, no problem, but in the past 6 months, problems. I have sent several things back but I did not send back the original packaging so the items couldn’t be sold to other people. The thinking is, many people won’t go through “the hassle” of sending stuff back and will just throw it away if there is a problem. The gate is quickly closing on amazon and all delivery services. Quiet crime is escalating everywhere.

      True dat! I buy hunting stuff from Bezos and when I use it, if it ain’t up to snuff, back it goes and they pay the freight. Every swingin’ dick company that peddles their stuff through Amazon seems to write their own ‘reviews’ but I seldom pay attention to them and I’ll buy what I think might be worthwhile and make my own decision.

    The torched Christmas tree in NYC might be a copycat crime– the Christmas tree in Oakland’s Jack London Square was set on fire late on the night of December 5. ” . . . investigators found evidence that a lighter had been used to ignite a spray can.”

    Update on the arsonist who set the NYC Christmas tree on fire: he “was freed after his arraignment Wednesday night because his charges were not eligible for bail under new liberal reform laws. . . . Tamanaha, a vagrant with a lengthy rap sheet who was known to police, also went on an incoherent rant outside the courthouse. He denied the arson and hurled obscenities at reporters before asking them for a cigarette. ‘The moms that want to rape their f—ing daughters — they set it on fire,’ yelled the man, who had also allegedly exposed himself outside the Ghislaine Maxwell trial last week. . . . The suspect has a history of destructive stunts, is homeless and abuses drugs, his father told The Post earlier Wednesday. ‘Oh, he’s a nut. I can’t control him,’ said Richard Tamanaha of Hawaii. ‘Mentally, he’s not all there.'”
