Re: “USPS is actually profitable

USPS is one of few things the US got right. But our Republican so called friends are hard at work to make it look bad and eventually disassemble it. All things that help regular people run small business without paying a share to a bid corporations are not welcome. Afterall you know that popular, selfish question everyone asks nowadays, whats in it for me?

Re: “Congress takes a vacation

Mr. Wyman, you ask happyfew, "What prompted you to refer to 'the black guy' and not use name or title?" Obviously, he is presenting the point of view of the racists. Perhaps it would have been clearer had he put the entire phrase in quotes, but he does not even bother to capitalize letters where appropriate (and he may have a broken shift key).

"That is one form of racism." Indeed. That only goes to show he got it right.

However, we all know that real racists do not use the term "black" because that would be too respectful. Racists would use the n-word.

Re: “Congress takes a vacation

happyfew: you state "clueless redneck racists.... " (INSERT GENERALIZATIONS HERE) then end with "the black guy in the white house".
Speaking of clueless! What prompted you to refer to "the black guy" and not use name or title? That is one form of racism. Then you got "white" into the other half of the reference! Freudian?
Hightower himself has a vision problem when he blames a large group of people for every "problem" implying the other large group have the answers but the other group just wants to be meanies.
To be paid to write in generalizations and be paid again and again! Who is the idiot with the checkbook??
That other large group must not have the answers after all or they are "clueless" about communicating or hearing. Everyone is open to workable solutions not cockamamie fantasies. Reality is that their proposals are just not sound and they know it. Instead of being proved wrong they convince their myopic followers it is the other group being stubborn so their "brilliance" goes by the wayside. Better than their idiocy being exposed by enacting their proposals and they know it.
To blindly follow party lines is as foolish as arguing them or believing in any politician. Congress can come back in September...2015...
To fail over and over is perhaps time to reassess the methodology or approach and stop blaming the "other side". You or I will never get everything we want. Accept that fact. The person in the White House cannot do much, thankfully. They can irritate everyone on earth quite easily though.
Can you guess what political party I am registered as?
