> Walmart and others are sucking while Bezos is executing

I don't know what world you're in, but Walmart is kicking ass as a company and is still posting a net profit larger than Amazon's, despite Amazon making boats of money off of AWS. At this point people prefer shopping at Walmart to Amazon.


Walmart generates $500B in revenue compared to Amazon's $230B. While you aren't wrong that Walmart is doing well, comparing net profit between companies when one is 2x the size of the other is dishonest. It's especially dishonest when guidance from Amazon was a net decrease as they invested into 1 day shipping.
