"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"
Cicero Marcus Tullius
You can usually pay your phone bill directly with a credit card, though, because the phone is not a publicly regulated utility.
I pay my electric bill online for free, but have them draw it directly from my checking account. I do not know if all companies offer this option. I do have the choice to pay via credit card, but if I do I get redirected to the third-party middleman and they charge a fee for their service.
If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
I voted I hate it. I don't do online bill pay. Still get netflix, mail and receive letters. The post office is in trouble because of them having to fund employee retirement decades in advance as most of you know. A gift from Bush administration to put one more government service in private hands. Cost saving here 2 billion. Chump change I say compared to the unnecessary Iraq yearly war cost not even counting deaths. Oh no, another "it was Bush" answer. Just doing cost comparisons and 2 billion a year isn't much.
