@12:33; HBO: "John, do you *really* need to buy this rock and show people it for a joke? The world's in a pandemic during a U.S. election year - the world's basically gone to -"
John: "Until such time as the world ends, we will act as though it intends to spin on. Now get me my rock shipped to the studio - it's heavy."

It's mildly ridiculous that the government, a group that does a MASSIVE amount of communicating via the mail, would actually put the postal service in a position where it might legitimately go bankrupt and end up having to shut down.... Then again, it's right on par with the rest of the shit the government is letting fall apart. Just look at the condition of the roadways and bridges across the country, it's basically the same situation...

It's hard to take this guy seriously at the end of the video, when he goes from "Let's talk facts" to "Let me trash Trump and talk about him like he's an idiot because it makes my Liberal watchers
happy." Which is exactly what happens. As soon as he mentions Trump, he goes off the fucking rails.

Honestly, if the USPS just suggest that they'll put up signs saying that "President Trump recommends we raise prices and so prices are raised" on all their fronts if they don't get their bailout, I'm sure Trump will fold faster than he could wear a mask.

I can certainly sympathise with people giving the USPS a hard time and I'm experiencing first-hand how the COVID crisis has impacted their service even more. I ordered a t-shirt from a store in Chicago and it's taken 3 weeks for it to travel just 23 miles from Bucktown to the USPS international sorting centre at O'Hare Airport. So much for getting my birthday present on time...

The dispute between Trump and Bezos shows why supporting USPS and other socialist measures is a bad idea.
Think about it, Trump is trying to damage Bezos by limiting support to the Post Service. Bezos is now incentived to support Trump, which doing so may change Trump's mind about USPS. Whenever the governement runs business, it changes the economy from capitalism to corporatism, making both corrupt politicians and CEOs more powerful.
I'm not saying that people in rural areas shouldn't have access to delivery, just that the government is the worst way to provide it.

Greetings from Dani Brzozowski‘a Congressional campaign in IL's rural (USPS-needing) 16th Congressional district. If you donate, we'll buy stamps and postcards to spread the word to 16th voters!
Dani is for other policies John's into, like medicare for all. Your donation would go a long way to making sure bills like that Postal Service Accountability act never happen again!

If it is the cost of shipping compared to USPS, then how come the more expensive UPS and Fedex are doing many times the volume of USPS? If its the last mile service that the USPS fills then certainly a private company could do the same. Either way, Government controlled or privatized USPS prices are going to have to increase, so pricing isn't a valid argument for their lack of volume or revenue. Congress has zero intent on bailing them out. Also they are losing billions, but buying a new fleet. Where is THAT money coming from?
Cry me a river USPS!!!!!

I feel for all essential workers, especially in health care. But it's a little tone deaf for that USPS employee to make a comment like "essential or sacrificial" when you receive a livable wage, a pension, paid sick leave, vacation time, health insurance, and retirement benefits while others, such as grocery store workers, have none of that. Nor PPE. Nor the ability to even practice social distancing 100% of the time.
This term "Essential Worker" is empty. It merely highlights how disposable some workers on the lower echelons of society are considered to be.

My personal issue is that as a kid (I’m 30) used to watch and enjoy John Stossel on 20/20 and his give me a break segment. Now hearing/seeing he’s a personality on Fox has me a little conflicted. Then again only a little, as I’m looking at all this from an outsiders perspective as I live in Canada. Also not a fan / supporter of the man behind the desk of the Oval Office....

The reason government doesn't work is that the people who say it doesn't work sabotage it so they can do evil stuff more easily.

This is wild. I am pretty sure Canada would implode if Canada Post collapsed. You should have saw the rage when to cut costs they started doing some community boxes. There were protests in my city. There was even a case that went to supreme court! City of Hamilton vs Canada Post. Eventually Trudeau won the election and than the federal government shut down the move to community mailboxes in 2018. They refused to reinstate door to door on the affected homes post calling it putting toothpaste back in the tube. So for the 840 000 households affected over the 4 years no door to door mail

So, First John said, Congress made a law to put price caps on first class mail.(Saying they should be able to raise prices).
Then John says FedEx and UPS are bad cause their service cost a lot of money. (So you don't want USPS to follow private companies).
Conflicting business ideas John

Im shure the fact that given the virus alot more are gunna be mailing in their vote, and closing of polling stations has nothing to do with it. The only way Republicans can win is by cheating. and they get away with it election after election. So now that the dems have chosen the weakest, Brain numb candidate, We have another 4 years for this man child, tyrant to destroy everything that makes america, america. RIP my neighbors to the south.

That cheery postal worker has rendered her medical grade mask useless by lowering it to her chin. Touching the outside of the mask means it’s contaminated, potentially with the novel coronavirus, and when it’s pulled up again it won’t protect others. Having the inside touch a part of the face that could also have viruses etc on it means the wearer’s own safety is compromised. That’s why, as evidence of asymptomatic spread became clearer, public health advisers still asked the general public to stay home and that the risk was that people would think they were helping but not using correct mask hygiene, which wasted the tragically scarce medical PPE
Now that people can be out and about, please do wear a fabric mask, and be careful to wash hands before and after putting it on, touching only the elastic or ties, keeping your hands off it until removal, and take it off with the same hand washing before and after, touching only the straps, then carefully place in a lidded container. It’s not easy to do so practice at home, and wearing them can be hot, uncomfortable, irritating and even make it harder to breathe so maybe practice wearing them at home until you’re able to go a couple hours w/o touching it. They should be washed and dried at the highest temps your machines have and stored in a sanitized lidded container in a layout that lets you pick them up only touching the straps
Safe and sane, love and light 🌈❤️

Perhaps Americans can start a letter writing campaign. Get a post card, write down the name(s) and info of someone you know who has died or been injured by COVID 19, slap a stamp on that sucker, and mail it to the president.
