Self hating, I gather.
No. Why would you say that? Or that I'm poor? This is all the kind of stuff people project to make themselves feel better. Like when the dirty hippies say that all Republicans are poor, uneducated trailer trash, dividing their time between church and trips to Walmart in their bathrobes. Or evil, rich white men who rule the world, if that stereotype suits the argument du jour.
Or, maybe - and this is a BIG maybe - there are people who aren't Democrats or liberals or socialists or whatever, who don't think that Donald Trump is a very good president. You might call them... Well, you know all the official insults that come from the approved party organs.
By the way; I've decided that you're a cross-dresser, and that's how I'm going to proceed from here on. It's very brave of you to come out the way you have. :action-sm

You said this:

Hate to say it, sir. You lost. The white man is done for. The world belongs to the darkies, mouthy broads and faggots. Enjoy your last hurrah. Semper Wackbaggus.
Wouldn’t it be “we lost”? Although untrue, that’s a big distinction.

And didn’t you declare yourself a poor person way back when I and other were rightfully gloating we’d save $15,000+ plus on our income taxes due to this financial wizard in the Oval Office?

And again, can you explain why you think Emporer Trump isn’t a very good Emporer?

Because no person who is wealthy, and getting wealthier due to the MAGA economy, could possibly be as assblasted buttmad as you are at Trump. It would take a special kind of bitterness to drive a person to bite the hand that's feeding them, and I don't think you're especially special. I think it's more likely that you're a brokeass chump who has no skin in the money-making game, and therefore no appreciation of the economic gains that are being made all around you. It's easy to hate the rainmaker when you ain't gettin' wet.

Or, maybe - and this is a BIG maybe - there are people who aren't Democrats or liberals or socialists or whatever, who don't think that Donald Trump is a very good president.
And none of them, yourself included, have a coherent argument to explain why they don't think Trump is a very good President. When they do try to explain, the reasons are all irrational, womanly-emotional, and downright delusional. But at least those people try. You won't even try.

By the way; I've decided that you're a cross-dresser, and that's how I'm going to proceed from here on. It's very brave of you to come out the way you have. :action-sm

:haha7: Amazon taking it from both sides. Funny, but also fucked up.

USPS proposes Amazon pay up to 12 percent more for shipping
CNBC.com

  • The U.S. Postal Service has proposed a 9-12% increase to the shipping service used by Amazon.com.
  • The parcel select service, which is also used by United Parcel Service and FedEx, is the last and typically the most expensive step in the shipping process that gets the packages to customers' doorsteps.
  • The USPS proposed a 9.3 percent increase on this service for packages weighing over one pound and a 12.3 percent increase to lighter packages.

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos speaks during a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump and technology industry leaders at Trump Tower in New York, Wednesday, Dec. 14, 2016.


The U.S. Postal Service has proposed a 9-12% increase to the shipping service used by Amazon, just months after President Donald Trump criticized the USPS for giving too good of a deal to Amazon.

The parcel select service, which is also used by United Parcel Service and FedEx, is the last and typically the most expensive step in the shipping process that gets the packages to customers' doorsteps. The USPS proposed a 9.3 percent increase on this service for packages weighing over one pound and a 12.3 percent increase to lighter packages.

President Trump issued an executive order in April to examine the USPS, claiming that it was on an "unsustainable financial path." He's also tweeted that the USPS is Amazon's "delivery boy" and doesn't make money from Amazon's business.

If there's one thing the post office doesn't ever want, it's more work.

Amazon has been screw-in the post office for years, have you tried to send a large package lately? The prices for your average person have gone through the roof and it’s because amazon beat them to death on the pricing, I can get a 70lb air conditioner shipped for free, from amazon, but if I want to ship that same package to someone else, it’s hundreds of dollars.
While I do enjoy my free shipping it’s time to re-evaluate their deal. Or, they can build their own shipping fleet and infrastructure, stop sucking off the government teet

Trump is also right about their taxes. They pay virtually nothing in federal taxes in relation their value.

And screw the post office, check out the below article. It essentially talks about Bezos making bids World domination over people lives. It talks about the 15/hr raise is a gamibit to force competitor retailers to do the same thus crippling them. I would have liked for the article to point out that since the leaders of all these tech companies are liberals they're allowed to engage in questionable business practices unopposed (indeed all of the left outrage in the retail game is reserved for Walmart)

They are, at least in my area. Most of the stuff that has been delivered to me lately is by a guy with some magnetic business placard on a sprinter van.

Same here, a sketchy looking black dude with dreads in a beat to hell free candy van, they are using contractors, how about they buy and maintain an entire fleet of electric delivery vehicles, charged with solar panels and their own smug attitude

They have been working on that for years. That is one thing you have to give credit to amazon, nothing is done half ass. They first started with their own planes. Allentown is one of those trial hubs for its proximity. Get their items to the distribution centers quicker and cheaper. That has worked. Now you see ads all over the place for drivers to deliver product. Fed ex started this well over a decade ago and it worked(they did have an issue making them independent contractors but controlling them as employees and were sued). The final stage is here and usps will be reduced at some point

You think theft is a slight problem now?
Wait til they get those shit paying, low benefits, delivery jobs. The drivers will be calling their friends left and right. Give them a Mercedes truck, to drive around all you want, gibs me dats will be abound.
UPS is a good gig (was better) and they had driving teams do that.

Tell me about it... had a package with a plumbing fitting dissapear said it was delivered. So drove 20 mins to post office talked to drone at counter and asked if they could look at the GPS log of the truck and see where it was actually delivered. Dude said had to talk to the post master and he would get back to me... well a year later nothing... shocking I know.

Had some other shit no show up though it said delivered just used Amazon's A to Z return thingy... and hey the post office ain't gonna do shit.

Despite whatever goofy shit Amazon is up to with their deliveries I get near flawless service from them. I got an alert from Fedex that a signature was required for a delivery (fuck you Newegg). Been trying to reroute it all day to another location for tomorrow but all I get on the fedex site "customized delivery options are unavailable at this time" has been the response all day.

Moral of the story, UPS, Fedex, USPS, Amazon, Lazership will ALL let you down at some point.

My father was a letter carrier for over 30 years, everyone loves to piss and moan about the post office but, if you take a step back and look at the larger picture of how the post office operates, and how much volume it actually handles, it’s honestly incredible, think about it.
You put a piece of paper in a box with a name and address on it, and the chances of it arriving at that address are about 99.999% anywhere in the world. Not to mention that until the advent of “official email” the only way to conduct business was via mail, and actually it is still the only way to conduct most legal business
