Getting a strong whiff from the TDS crowd hoping no real deal gets done.

When you allow tens-of-millions of third worlders into America what happens in communities where they make up significant numbers? See parts of California as an instance. At least you got that part right.

I don't get much "real" mail, so when something different shows up, especially in a box, I get interested.

ALL, and I do mean every scrap of it, ALL junk mail to me is trashed without a 2nd glance. Those companies are completely wasting their money sending that garbage to me.

I think we need to make junk mail illegal, btw. It uses up about 80% of the Post Offices resources and only accounts for about 15% of the revenue. Cut the junk mail and the Post Office would probably turn a healthy profit every year. Junk Mail's special low rate is nothing more than government subsidizing big business advertising.
Thanks from imaginethat and RNG

Where do you get your 15% number? I tried looking up numbers and I'm seeing around 30%.
The postal service would turn a profit if it wasn't required to pre-fund retirement liabilities in a way that no private corporation is required.
Besides the postal service doesn't use tax-payer money for it's operations, so the government isn't really subsidizing it's rates.
Thanks from imaginethat

Memory. INaccurate memory, for that matter. The link below is more in line with your comment, stating that bulk mail accounts for about 1/3 of the PO's income. Thanks for the correction, and if you find any better, more current links, please send them to me. Pretty hard pinning down the actual numbers, huh? The PO isn't the most...outgoing...of the Government services.

You’re ignoring the fact that Trump also called it nice. Again without reading it.
Thanks from Hollywood

In the "with friends like this who needs enemies column

Giuliani does it again.

So, two possibilities. Giuliani is as dumb as the average fundie menace, or is the Republican President setting him up to be the fall-guy when the meeting disintegrates?
