<quoted text> You do know the post office just asked Congress for an emergency rate increase? When the cost gets high enough that private enterprise can do it cheaper it will happen. Getting rid of home delivery for non express mail would be a start. Group boxes, as Galt suggested, should be done first.
The more that USPS raises their rates, the more business they will lose.

Group boxes allow one driver in a truck to do the work of several carriers on foot.

Delivery could be reduced to three days per week and nobody would know the difference, because nothing urgent is ever sent by mail.

Galt calls the bravery of the 9-11 responders stupidity.
When Galt house catches fire, maybe some stupid firefighters will just let him burn.
The fire departments in this area will not enter a house unless there is a claim of someone being inside. Even then the degree of the fire will still cause them to not enter. They just pull up outside, blow out the windows with 1000 gallon a minute hoses, and then go in afterwards to put out the embers. All wood truss commercial buildings have a big 'T' on the door. They lost a couple of guys some years ago down the street. If that 'T' is on the door they aren't going inside.

You love to post propaganda without any sources, but in the real work Dumb Dave, people are seeing Health Care costs skyrocket, their jobs being eliminated or hours reduced so they will be forced into the Health Care Abyss. Others like with UPS are seeing their spouses dropped from coverage.
Not a pretty picture. Yet, as usual, you are oblivious to the reality of what is occurring. You sit at your table all day, not impacted and detached from reality.
I responded to Flack's cut & paste post with no source so why should I post a source in response.

As for your pack of BS, UPS only cut spouses who were eligible for health benefits at their place of employment.

"Yesterday, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that it would be reversing some of the cuts to Medicare Advantage scheduled to be implemented in 2014 — specifically, instead of cutting per-person reimbursement rates by 2 percent next year as they’d proposed in February, CMS will increase them by about 3 percent. This doesn’t, however, have any effect on the health-care reform law’s long-term plans for the private program, which will slowly cut Medicare Advantage’s funding to the levels of traditional Medicare, pushing customers into the latter program. "
Note the part where this has no effect of the ACA panned savings.
The cuts to Medicare Advantage were the prime funding mechanism for ObamaKKKare.

Bin Laden's death hurt their leadership & fund raising efforts.
Cleaning out the terrorist training camps in Afghanistan was the correct thing to do. The war should have ended with that.

<quoted text>lol! Ok, son. Let's play your game. Let's play by the rules you've created....
So where are the wmd's that bushie boy said were there?
And it would appear your OPINION is trumped by the facts... as usual!
"... SPIEGEL: The German government was convinced that "Curveball" would not be used in the now famous presentation that then US Secretary of State Colin Powell gave in 2003 before the United Nations Security Council.
Drumheller: I had assured my German friends that it wouldn't be in the speech. I really thought that I had put it to bed. I had warned the CIA deputy John McLaughlin that this case could be fabricated. The night before the speech, then CIA director George Tenet called me at home. I said: "Hey Boss, be careful with that German report. It's supposed to be taken out. There are a lot of problems with that." He said: "Yeah, yeah. Right. Dont worry about that."
SPIEGEL: But it turned out to be the centerpiece in Powell’s presentation -- and nobody had told him about the doubts.
Drumheller: I turned on the TV in my office, and there it was. So the first thing I thought, having worked in the government all my life, was that we probably gave Powell the wrong speech. We checked our files and found out that they had just ignored it.
SPIEGEL: So the White House just ignored the fact that the whole story might have been untrue?
Drumheller: The policy was set. The war in Iraq was coming and they were looking for intelligence to fit into the policy. Right before the war, I said to a very senior CIA officer: "You guys must have something else," because you always think it's the CIA. "There is some secret thing I don`t know." He said: "No. But when we get to Baghdad, we are going to find warehouses full of stuff. Nobody is going to remember all of this."..."
You're such an easy shill son!
The WMD's were found, some in Iraq and some in Syria, just as Saddam's general said.

You turn the other cheek.
Believe that's only when one is personally offended by another. Don't think it applies when the offender is beheading your family.

Many battles were fought in biblical days for the sake of good overcoming evil. There is no freedom or hope but despair, oppression and fear when evil prevails. Fighting battles for the sake of mankind is the right thing to do.

However, these days, evil has taken such a stronghold, it's going to take the entire civilized world to come together to snuff it out. The military might of the U.S. and the UK are the backbone but the willingness of countries like France and the rest of the civilized world who want to eradicate this present-day scourge seems to be our only hope.

Russia doesn't even want al Qaeda to win this battle. We again have a mutual enemy which is much more threatening than Hitler. They have their own motives for wiping out radical Islam but, in this case, the end again justifies the means.

(Forgive the bloviating - just feel strongly about this.)
