A Simple Statement
If you can’t — or won’t — see the inherent evil in this…
…then you can’t possibly understand what’s wrong with this world.
I hope to enrage you further by offering these facts about Bezos’ new digs:
- It’s a 13,600 square foot structure
- It sits on a nine acre tract
- It has a tennis court, swimming pool, and a nine-hole golf course
- The multi-vehicle garage has a gas pump for each car
Bezos already owns a three-story condominium in a Fifth Avenue (New York) high rise — he purchased the building’s penthouse and the condos on the two floors below it to create a kingly residence there. He paid $80 million for the three units in 2019.
The Amazon.com, Inc. founder also owns a $23 million mansion in Washington, DC. That home formerly was a museum.
As of February 13, Bezos was worth $131 billion dollars. That total is higher than the 2019 Gross Domestic Products of Morocco, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Venezuela, Croatia, Lebanon, Iceland, and Zimbabwe, among many others. President Donald Trump’s December 2017 tax code revisions afforded Bezos a healthy income tax cut.
