Amazon is waiting in the wings to possibly buy up all the building's they own, fill them with merchandise and robots.   Oh yeah, and drones to deliver the goods when possible.  Very few humans to be involved.

Drones used for industry will later be used to silence dissidents.

My bff's husband just got hired at a new Amazon dist. center! I will have the inside info on that from her. Oh and they are not allowed cell phones inside or anything electronic. Amazon says it interferes with their robots/equipment that is inside the building. Side note: They have 2 babies, one is almost 3 the other 6 months, she's getting me screen shots as soon as she can of the forms they are making them fill out at the Pediatrician's office and I will post here when I get them. Juicy stuff! NWO to the max, she's going to homeschool and is fighting the vax's, she said 78 shots for vax now! 78!!!!!!
