Postal Service Chief Lays Out Plan For Agency Survival

Postal Service Chief Lays Out Plan For Agency Survival

Commented Nov 28, 2012 at 13:52:48 in Politics

“Why doesn't the Postal Service eliminate the trinkets and fancy bags and advertising on network/cable TV and concentrate on good mail delivery, courteous clerks and overall efficiency? Also, target the ballooning bureaucracy with their huge salaries, big offices, annual bonuses (for managing a losing enterprise?) and perks. Interesting that FEDEX and UPS are not 15 billion in debt and are a lot more efficient.”

“My point exactly. Perhaps I wasn't clear. The Lord did NOT designate his blessed mother nor Magdalene nor Martha nor any of the other women who followed him as Apostles when He could have since many of his words and works were revolutionary for that time. So why do women persist in this constant battle? Some have become priests depending on the diocese. But now they want to be bishops and are having public tantrums. Pride goeth before a fall.”

“Thank you for clarifying that!”

“"Evangelicals and Anglo-Catholics argue that .... ordaining women bishops would break with the tradition of the male-only clergy that stretches back to the Twelve Apostles".
Wouldn't the Lord who was considered a revolutionary in his time have made his mother and Magdalene apostles? Why then all the pressure and brou-ha-ha for women bishops if, indeed, each of the 44 member churches in the worldwide Anglican Communion can decide for itself whether to allow women bishops? Seems a bit like prideful indignation.”

Vachel on Nov 20, 2012 at 18:55:14

“Sorry, but the canonical scriptures nowhere say that Jesus made Mary Magdalene a bishop or an apostle. You'd have to look to the Gnostic apocrypha to find any such thing.”

“HUFFPOST retracted that story. The proposed pay cut would affect everyone, rank-and-file & management. In their retraction, HUFFPOST mentioned that the CEO agreed to take a $1 salary together with other executives until the end of the year. This is a time when mg't and the union should be shooting for a win-win solution. And mg't should listen to union suggestions more often. Remember how Harley-Davidson workers saved the company when it was in bankruptcy proceedings & the cycle became the most popular nationally & around the world when it had been on the skids? That's what happens when you try to reach agreement.”

“People with real concerns can't compete with the fancy glitzy lobbyists and so essential problems remain unsolved. They descend like locusts on Capitol Hill and parlay their connections with the administrations of both parties to get the loopholes for their clients and legislation done in their favor. It's impossible to clean out. They are parasites feeding on the whatever host government is in control.”

“Hear, hear! Excellent comment. Years ago, students could make enough money in the summer to afford university tuition and even room & board which helped a lot of young people to get their degrees. Can't do that now unless you can make $15,000 or more over the summer months and what job (other than an illegal one) offers that?”

“>>> macilibe - I'll tell you why. It is naive not to recognize that newspapers, editors, reporters, journalists, are in the business of selling whatever to get readership. Readers mean money, in many cases costly advertisements. Newspapers are always panting after salacious gossip to write banner headlines - and draw in the readers. These two men were authors of their own problems with two willing women. If you want to be left alone you don't go courting notoriety, your 15 minutes of "fame." The media is simply doing what it does best.”
