Looking for ways to boost revenue for the U.S. Postal Service's money-losing operations, the Trump administration is suggesting selling access to mailboxes.

"The legal mailbox monopoly remains highly valuable," said a government report issued last week. "As a means of generating more income, the mailbox monopoly could be monetized."
Social Media are multi-national billion dollar corporations with foreign investors that are going unchecked with the power to effect our election process.

"Book burnings" have evolved into "de-plat forming". Its the same principles behind both: to eliminate accessible knowledge.

Since we are paying for the post office service, why are we paying to use it (stamps). It's the same as we paying for roads yet we have to pay to use it (tolls).

It's should be like FedEx. I don't use it. I don't get charged a dime.

Now you know it don't work that way.  With the government if you don't use it, you are even taxed more.   :sneaky:

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~
