    The state or, to make matters more concrete, the government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they cant get, and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods. - H.L. Mencken

    Based on BoincStats, it looks like it's VGTU. They are in the process of updating their Website for GDPR aren't they? I just found, and enabled, the export flag.

    Huh? How else are you supposed to put it in an envelope with a stamp and hand it to your mailman to deliver it to someone???

    Most of what my mailman delivers are packages from Amazon.

    In my area, Amazon packages are delivered by Amazon trucks.

    Amazon ships our items to their facility in Lenexa, Kansas and then they are transferred to USPS for local delivery.
    I got an Amazon package delivered today (Sunday) from USPS even though there is no regular mail delivered on Sundays.
    I don't know if USPS is making any money on the contract with Amazon, but it is keeping them busy as paper mail diminishes.

    How much tax money would the government save by eliminating the so called "private" post office. Like Mumps my Amazon items are delivered by Amazon and about all the USPS delivers is junk and more junk that fills up my recycle bin.

    RETIRED. NO JOB. NO MONEY. NO WORRIES!

    where I live if I mail anything through the post office to a town 30 miles away it has to go about a 180 miles north into Nebraska and then the 180 miles back to a town 30 miles east of me. takes about 7 days, I can walk it over there faster.
