To me, one of the biggest solutions is to reduce the pre-payment for health benefits for retirees to reasonable levels. I'm all for the USPS providing retirement benefits to its workers, but 50 years in advance for health benefits? That's absurd. Another reason, BTW, we need M4A yesterday. If we had M4A there would be no need for the USPS to be saving up money for health benefits, let alone 50 years in advance. As is, the 2006 bill was obviously passed so it would in time cripple the USPS, and "prove" Big Government does not work in hopes it would mean they would have to private.

My grandmother is retired from the post office, and my mom will retire within a couple of years. Both served rural communities. Absolute lifeline to people, especially the elderly. Internet and good cell reception can still be hard to come by. I am really impressed with John Oliver's segment on this. I was a bit worried, but he gets it. The other a**hole that was featured? He can go jump in a creek. I find a lot of people who don't come from a rural community or know someone who does is out of touch with the realities. And if it's SOOO bad, then why do city people still insist on coming out to visit? Anyway, that's my rant. Go USPS!

Rump is a Corporate Socialist. A Democratic Socialist is someone who wants tax monies to be spent on the people who actually pay them which are the working to middle classes, as opposed to a Corporate Socialist who wants to spend tax dollars on the interests of the top 2% while paying lawyers and accountants to make it so that they pay as little tax as possible. Corporate Socialists want to pay as little and hog as much tax revenue as they can. Greed knows no bounds and it is as relentless as a pitbull shaking the carcass of a motorcycle tire and as organized as the lobbyists for the most wealthy top 2% who can afford to bankroll them. Bush tried to corporatize Social Security and now Rump wants to do the same to Our Post Office. By the way we are all Socialists as we are all social beings for our survival strategy, it's just a matter of balancing individual interests with social interests to a level that prevents individual greed from having a bad effect on the quality of the society that all of us must share and live in. Now we are stuck with Biden who is a Democratic party apparatchik and a corporate socialist. If he does't pick Warren as his running mate I won't vote for him but rather will let others decide which way the toilet flushes down our sick pathological corporate socialist dominated political system.

I have a lot of reasons to hate the USPS including, and this is true, that they once stopped delivering all mail to me for over 9 months straight (it was while living in the same apartment I still live in, and have lived in for 8 years). I called every day to complain. I filed complaints online. I filed complaints with both the local and national post office. After months I had to go to the distribution center and pick up a huge pile of mail from them, including multiple packages. They still refused to deliver my mail. Randomly one day I started getting mail again with no explanation. But despite that, I STILL, STILL (SOMEHOW) LOVE THE USPS!!! ♥♥♥ My Grandpa was a vet and served in WWII, and when he got older, became a mailman. I LOVE THAT ABOUT HIM!!! I love sending letters & packages! I love getting letters & packages! I get excited to check the mailbox everyday, and I'm 40. I still have penpals who I send physical letters to. I bought John's awesome "Last Stamps Tonight," and then went to the USPS.com store and bought another $50 of other random stamps. I told a friend I bought the stamps, and he asked me to mail him a letter. Thank you for this story, John!! p.s. When you set that rock on your desk/table, did it scratch the surface? Sounded like sh*t.

Some thing can only be sent USPS. Human remains can only be sent through the US Postal service. If someone dies and is cremated in one city and their family lives in another, presumably very far away so they can't pick up their loved one. The only way to send the cremated remains is through the post. They cannot be sent Fedex or UPS.

08:33 : “the remote addresses are not profitable”. Yes... what he “forgets” to tell us is that it’s because there are F** price caps... just like here in Brazil... they use this to say that the company should remain being state-run while massive corruption and inefficiency goes on inside of it and drags billions from the tax payer. I still don’t know why I watch this guy... the facts here have to change to suit his leftist beliefs... and sometimes he seems fair and unbiased... but only seems. 🤮

But hey, let's make at least 10 MBps "broadband" Internet a public utility and an essential service that all citizens who are reachable by telephone. Actually, it should be AT THE VERY LEAST 50 MBps!

YOU SHOULD DO A PIECE ON CANADA / CORONA VIRUS, ... as a comparison to the US response. - Each Canadian province actually knows its infection numbers, and responds with teams to hot spots. - In charge are provincial health officers, who speak to their populations daily with information to stay safe and report numbers and calm fears ... daily. The Prime Minister himself goes in front of cameras daily and speaks to federal responses (and he needs a haircut). *On provincial health officers; focus on Bonny Henry - British Columbia's Health Officer. The exact type of person you want in charge, with the absolute perfect demeanour ... and just google 'Bonnie Henry' and 'shoes'. The story within the story ... damn nice shoes. Carrying on: - The federal govt's financial response to the Corona caused unemployed, students, seniors, and businesses. - Social distancing was imposed very early, and the curve has flattened and we are now safely BBQing with extended families. This is not to say its all been perfect - google 'Quebec extended care' and 'military report' ... but its all been a heck of a lot better than the US. A piece worth doing.

Man I just watched tonight’s episode and John I’m a big fan of both you and UFC, but honestly the battle you’re picking with Dana is looking really cringe. Give the dude a break man! He’s the only guy who managed to keep some sort of sports going during COVID, and the staff and fighters wouldn’t want it any other way. Also “Dana White Looking For A Fight” is literally his YouTube series, and it’s really fun to watch. How can you possibly hate the guy? Was definitely one of your weirder episodes to date, and that’s saying a lot after the stuff you’ve put on display (which I usually appreciate tbh). Lol, keep the comedy coming either way

USPS does not raise their rates?!? Once again Trump has NO IDEA what he is talking about! I am semi-retired from selling on Amazon and eBay from 1998 to 2013. They would at least raise rates annually (whereas Amazon would raise shipping reimbursements every 3 or 4 years), but near the end of my activity, rates were being raised like 4 or 5 times a year! That is why they came up with "Forever" stamps, you could not buy quantity of stamps and expect them to be the right amount to mail a letter, even for the near future. It was getting insane. What POTUS is ignorant of, shipping costs are a HUGE part of staying in business online, and if they raise rates too high, the economy will suffer as many, many, many (yes that is a pun at Trump) businesses will not be able to survive. Regardless, Citizens will end up paying a lot more and resist spending, which HELLO hurts the economy again. Who ever gave this guy the idea that he knew how to run a country? They should be "FIRED!"

2020 election coming up. Consider this and ask if we can trust the election process. #Trumpgate is REAL. It is called, “The Mueller Report” Read it. Obstruction of Justice is NOT the actions of Honest Men. An excerpt: the report stated that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was illegal and occurred "in sweeping and systematic fashion", but was welcomed by the Trump campaign as it expected to benefit from such efforts. It also identifies links between Trump campaign officials and individuals with ties to the Russian government, about which several persons connected to the campaign made false statements and obstructed investigations. Mueller later stated that his investigation's conclusion on Russian interference "deserves the attention of every American".
