    The post office in no way offers as many services as we (UPS) do. They just handle a higher volume and have a cheaper base-rate.

    UPS can deliver a package anywhere in the Continental US on the same day if you are willing to fork over the money to have the service performed.

    I'm only trying to help man. It's really damned hard on the eyes to try and decipher your posts.

    IF you would turn

    Those long chains of sentences into say

    A paragraph with structure, you might get a few more people

    Bothering to read what you have to say.

    There IS an ignore feature on these forums...

    Crap I tried it your way, but I don't do bullet points.

    Which is more readable?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Re: Obama it's the post office that's always having problems.

    The U.S. postal service could solve all its problems by redlining obscure regions; just stop delivering mail to any area which isn't profitable.

    Fact is the postal service has to factor in fairness to all citizens and residents in addition to profit; private sector businesses only need to worry about profit, unless the government entices them otherwise. And fairness is generally unprofitable (financially speaking).

    Cant think of one. Some have partly or/and are thinking of privatising old post companies, but the origins are public run postal service. In fact most countries have laws requiring the services of the postal system.. laws that go back a hundred years.

    Re: Obama it's the post office that's always having problems.

    Let's please not buy into this false comparison of UPS, Fedex and the USPS.
    It is a non uniform comparison, as the private carriers aren't allowed to deliver daily regular mail.

    UPS and FedEx deliver packages heavier than the postal office is willing to, they also deliver world wide which the post office doesn't do.

    Don't forget though that the post office outsources a ton of it's bulk mail to shipping companies and if your using the post office for over night or express delivery your really using FedEx.

    Funny enough the U.S. had a few private bulk mail delivery services until the government decided they could force a monopoly.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.
