Put A Stamp On It!

17 Apr

Did you ever put a stamp on an envelope and notice that it often says in the upper right hand corner that the Post Office will not deliver your mail without the proper postage attached?

So what’s all the fuss that our President is trying to create by telling us that Amazon is not paying to have its packages delivered? Just how would they get away with that when everyone knows that the Post Office doesn’t carry our letters, packages and mail around for free? Did you ever try to pop something in the mail without postage????

If you’re lucky the Post Office will send it back to you with a note that says (See above)…if not, you’ll just never see your mail again…nor will anyone else…

The Post Office is not funded by American tax dollars and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations. And while it is true that the P.O. is suffering from a large amount of debt that’s only because most of the Postal Service’s financial problems have been created by a government mandate that it pay up front for retiree pension and health care expenses. That’s because an act of Congress says that it has to… (private businesses that have retiree benefit obligations are not required to pay those amounts up front.)… And those P.O. obligations for current and past employees stood at $38 billion at the end of its most recent fiscal year.

And that’s why The Postal Service’s debt is so high. It’s a direct result of the Congressional mandate that it must pay for 10 years to pre-fund the retiree healthcare plan and pension fund…not because Amazon is having it’s mail delivered for free.

And yet our President insists on tweeting:

“I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy. Amazon should pay these costs (plus) and not have them bourne by the American Taxpayer. Many billions of dollars. P.O. leaders don’t have a clue (or do they?)!”

Does our President have a clue? He should, because…well…like…He is the President!…Of the United States! And he could ask someone who works in the White House or in his Cabinet or in Congress…or Melania even! I bet she knows or could certainly ask someone for him.

But noooooooooo…instead the President has issued an executive order calling for an investigation into the Postal Service’s finances so that we can spend some real taxpayer’s money trying to once again find out who ate the strawberries when we already know who did it…our own President, Captain Queeg!

Just imagine… 2 and a half more years of having to watch the President of the United States…just mailing it in every day…and without a stamp!?

 

Shall We Examine the Evidence?

16 Apr

Former FBI Director, James Comey, has released a new book in which he accuses  President Donald Trump of not being very presidential while also likening him to resembling something more akin to that of a mob boss.

President Donald trump responded by… tweeting… that James Comey is… a “leaking, lying slimeball!”

So, I guess that about sums it all up in a nutshell…wouldn’t you say?

Which Hunt?

President Donald Trump slammed the FBI’s raid on the office and hotel room of his personal lawyer Michael Cohen as a “disgraceful situation” and an “attack on our country.” “It’s a total witch-hunt. ” “It’s an attack on our country in a true sense. It’s an attack on what we all stand for, so when I saw this and when I heard it, I heard it like you did, I said that is really now in a whole new level of unfairness.”

I don’t know what he’s so concerned about or why he is so upset with agents of the law and American law enforcement just doing their job. Aren’t these public servants among the true heroes of our country, as Republicans and conservatives are often so fond of saying, and always picking on Democrats liberals for not saying often enough?

Republicans and Conservatives are also quite fond of telling all Americans about how easy it is to work with law enforcement and officers of the law. It’s really quite simple isn’t it?

Just roll down your window… Say, “yes sir and no sir and thank you sir.”…Obey all instructions politely… Never raise your voice or argue or complain… Show all of your necessary and legal documents…and never, ever, ever show aggression… or run.

After all, if you haven’t done anything wrong…then what is there to be upset or afraid about?

Right?

God Tomorrow?

That’s life!…According to a study from Harvard University, the Higgs boson particle, also known as the “God particle”, because it helps give mass to all elementary particles that have mass, (don’t ask me how) such as electrons and protons, could one day cause the complete destruction of our Universe!

 

And just how will it do that? Well, a negative energy bubble could cause the collapse of our Universe, (who knew?)…but according to researchers… it is likely that the process of the destruction of said Universe… has already begun! (Say what?)
But don’t worry because all that will need to happen is the collision of the famous (infamous?) Higgs boson particle with aforesaid ball of negative energy…so please let’s just keep it from opening a Facebook account!
Scientists think that this is a rather amusing idea since the Higgs boson particle is also known as the “God Particle”… and the thought that the fundamental particle that gives mass (and life?) to all the matter contained in the Universe is also capable of one day causing the complete destruction of that universe…is, well, rather funny…to scientists…that is…
And you thought that the Universe would just go about its prolonged collapse and disappearance over a few gazillion years or so? Now you know that it is just as likely to all disappear just as fast as it came…in the blink of an eye…and the process say researchers, may have already begun???????
Silly scientists! This is what we regular humans call old age and death. Did not the process begin just as soon as we were big bang smacked and led kicking and screaming into this existence? And might it not now all just end any………………….
