    It would cost someone a job but i'm sure to possibly swing an election that isn't that big of a deal. Also you pointed out part timers and that would be most likely were its from, wouldn't be once its in a drivers package car. Packages do get lost in the system or misplaced and end up having to get paid out, while thats not a common occurance it does happen. What i'm talking about is more the ballot boxes getting "damaged" by mishandling or an accident occurring.
    FedEx lost the Amazon account a few years ago during peak season because they told Amazon they couldn't handle additional Volume that Amazon wanted to move through them. Thats when Amazon moved it all to UPS and last year they stopped all shipping through other companies and now exclusively ships through UPS for what they can't ship themselves. Its very true Amazon isn't a cost effective account, a big chunk of our % through the ground service but a very small % of overall revenue.

    I guarantee you that trump and the republicans are thinking all the time about mail-in ballots all over the country, and how great it would be for them if the Postal Service was dead or dysfunctional in November.

    I'll bet that all of us in here view ourselves as those who debate with common sense without twisting things around.

    true. However when a person deliberately only quotes a portion of a statement, it takes it out of context with zero regard to previous posts that conflict with the view trying to be portrayed.
    Either way it happens alot around here. Ive been guilty. But i own up when i make that kind of mistake.
    People taking a portion of a comment and running with it instead of engulfing the whole conversation first, to have a full understanding of the words being quoted.

    Amazon Prime is one of the best business decisions they ever made. I mean, between the free 2-day shipping, and no-hassle returns, you really can't go wrong. They revolutionized the industry with those moves. Now, Bezos can go buy himself a personal spaceship.

    Okay, I'll grant you permission to have some rights. For fifty bucks I'll mail you a type written copy of those rights.
    sample
    Right no. 1: You have the right to be kicked in the nuts if you dare to disagree with me.
    I have rights, too.
    I have the right to force you to give me your lunch money every day.
    Hey, I like your proposal of having rights.
