Default Re: US Postal Service Logic

Well, to repeat myself, I DON'T "hate" the USPS. To us here in Alaska, they are our 'salvation' from the predators that FedEx and UPS are. If it were in my power, FedEx and UPS would cease to exist. Words fail to describe how much I loathe them.

The USPS is a government bureaucracy, plain and simple. As such, it is fraught with all the nightmares of government inefficiency and moronic behavior. Nevertheless, for all their stupidity, they are NOT out to gut me. They are not out to extort money from me. They - as a rule - don't "lie" to me as a matter of practice. Read the CONTRACTS of UPS and FedEx. They "guarantee" safe delivery of everything EXCEPT 1) China (as in dinnerware), and 2) FIREARMS. If you send a firearms by UPS or FedEx and "something" happens to it, YOU ARE SOL. PERIOD. READ THE CONTRACT!

Everyone gets their panties in a bunch over D ick's Sporting goods and "looks the other way" when it comes to UPS and FedEx's firearms POLICY - MEMORIALIZED IN CONTRACT.

So, it's fine by me to rail against the USPS for typical government stupidity and inefficiency. (Do you REALLY want an EFFICIENT government? Think about that.) But, for all their stupidity, they are not slimy, good-for-nothing liars, and extortionists. And that's EXACTLY what UPS and FedEx are.

That's "the other side of the coin".
