Jew hate cover up. By the same paper that covered up genocide of Ukrainians. And Jews, in the Soviet Union. Pretty sure there's editorials praising the half of "The Crew" who share the British Labour Party view on people of that oppressed minority. ( But that's speculation on my part, I don't read the New Pravda Times, anymore, usually )

As to the Saudi military murder suicide at Pensacola, the most powerful tool of an editor is to choose what not to report.

"To disabuse the unenlightened, corporations donít really pay income taxes anyway; they only seem to. To survive, a business must recover all of its costs from its customers. ... FedEx is a profitable, efficient company. The US Postal Service is neither of these, operating at a perpetual loss. Who do you prefer for overnight delivery?"

Just for the record, the US Postal Service by law is not allowed to make a profit. And yes, they screw up. So does Fed Ex. I once got a ticket for an 8:00 AM Monday flight in a cardboard envelope covered in bright yellow tape that said, SATURDAY DELIVERY in big, black letters at 10:30 AM. 2 1/2 hours after the flight had left. When I told the driver what was in that envelope, his response Was, "Oh. Ya wanna call my boss?"

The first time I bought a custom shifter from Precision Engineering, it cost over $13.00 for shipping with UPS and took 8 days to arrive in Massachusetts. I bought the same shift lever for my wife's bike a few weeks later and requested they ship by USPS Priority Mail It cost $4.95 to ship and I had it in two days.

I'll take the USPS over Fed Ex or UPS every time.

You are correct the United States Postal Service is not allowed to make a profit. In the 30+ years after it was made a non profit company under government oversight, it has made a profit, some years ago, which was immediately taken by Congress.

There's the minor detail that part of the semi-privatization plan was that Congress stole the accumulated benefits fund, then made law the new company would refill that fund at an accelerated rate, as it's top monetary priority. But that's a bizarre and hard to understand thing for sane people, so let's not go there. ; )

There are 2 basic bottom lines you must consider when arguing about service and profits about the Post Office and it's competition.

Fed Ex and UPS sets their rates at what they think the market will bear, in competition with everyone else. The USPS has it's rates set by a Congressional committee. There is an internal accounting group that makes an educated guess as to costs and volume, then asks for a suggested rate, but Congress never gives them that rate. ( I'll leave it to your level of cynicism to determine if the bribes my Union pays politicians is more or less influential than the Corporate bribes from the competing mega corporations )

The other, and most important difference between the Postal Service and it's competition is the Postal Service is required by law to serve everybody. Coverage is not 100%. But mail is flown into bush strips in the Rockies, isolated Idaho & Montana & Alaska where there are no roads, and the Postal Service is the only lifeline to a broader world.

That cost is not paid by the competing companies.

In fact, the competition uses the Post Office to deliver their packages extensively. It's cheaper, and it goes where they won't.

I'll skip some Union screwing by UPS that is public record, just look up the last big strike & it's aftermath.

The last big Postal Strike in the U.S. had my fellow union members shot by troops. And it's illegal for them to strike today, because it's a matter of National Security.

I'm first to say the USPS is imperfect. It's a bureaucracy older than our nation. That alone is food for thought.

One more thing to add about postal rates. What you and I pay for 1st class mail doesn't pay for their operations. Without the mass mailers, junk mailers, direct mailers, or what ever name you want to apply to them, your rates to mail a letter would be significantly higher. Honestly, the USPS, UPS, and FedEx all do a pretty impressive job, each with their strengths and weaknesses.

Adding to Patrick's points, a couple more.

After 2001, Congress passed legislation that nothing over a pound could fly on a commercial airliner.
Meaning the airlines couldn't use mail any longer to subsidize air travel. That equates to less seats in the air, with less flights, dropped routes and increased costs for airfare. And since they'd already divested themselves of aircraft decades earlier, now had to pay FedEx and USPS (competitors) to fly mail in order to maintain delivery times.

2. After the anthrax mailings, more legislation that all incoming mail be scanned for bio presence. Never mind that the technology didn't exist. USPS had to fund the R&D and deployment to every processing facility BY LAW.

Both of which have to passed on to someone (consumers) but Congress holds the access to rate increases. And as mentioned regularly denies.

The sad thing about all of this praise for Greta is that she really hasn't accomplished ANYTHING. I would guess that her reality is going crash down around her when her 15 minutes of fame are over.

meh. She'll get a book deal, or a speaking tour.

Of course, she'll have to have someone else write the book for her...given the state of "education" these days, and the fact that she's boycotted school for...how long, now?
