I'm sure glad KWalterMitty kept his promise to Gabe and stopped the baiting posts and posting his usual nonsense. I'm not sure how this thread would have turned out had he pulled the same ol' crap on a different day. On a side note, tiered licensing won't work as was pointed out somewhere in this mess, because too many riders aren't getting licenses now. If they up the standard, that will just mean more that won't bother, and it kind of defeats why it was put into place in the first place. Have fun bashing KWalterMitty around. I have to work on the Shovel today, and it's cold out there.

I've decided that my Shop (whenever I get around to building it) will have sheetrock walls in the work area. Wallboard is FANTASTIC for holding tools after you injure yourself with them - each in their own hammer/ratchet/torquewrench/screwdriver-shaped slots............

Default Re: WTF????!!!!

Here is a Link to a few facts about the USPS.



From the website:



"We receive no tax dollars from the federal government for our operations. We are a self-supporting agency, using the revenue from the sales of postage and postage-related products to pay expenses."



"The U.S. Postal Service is viewed by the American public as the most trusted organization for privacy among all 70 federal departments, agencies, bureaus and other entities examined in the 2006 privacy trust survey conducted by Ponemon Institute."




I was mistaken; I thought they received limited funding for their operations. I guess they eliminated that when I was a child.



This is the latest report (large pdf file) I could find on the US Treasury's website concerning the USPS - it dates from '03.



I'm sure there are later reports, but I didn't feel like wading through the site to locate them.
