    People need to stop titling clips "Ben Shaprio owns/destroys fill-in-the-blank".

    Some countries such as United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Japan have privatized post offices, so why can't the U.S. let their postal services be privatized?

    There are some multi-billionaires in America who could afford to buy and maintain the United States Postal Service.

    I understand that the United States Postal Service is losing revenue, due to the competition with FedEx and United Parcel Service (UPS). In 2016, the USPS had its fifth straight annual operating loss, in the amount of $5.59 billion.

    The Postmaster General of the United States is the chief executive officer of the United States Postal Service. The United States Postmaster General's salary $276,840, a little higher than the U.S. Vice-President's salary. The Postmaster General is the second-highest paid U.S. government official, second only to the President of the United States.

    Is it perhaps because the US Postal Service has over 600,000 employees? The USPS as of February 2015 has 617,254 active employees and operated 211,264 vehicles in 2014.

    If that is so, then the Secretary of Defense should receive a salary equal to that of the Postmaster General. The Department of Defense not only has over 650,000 employees but is also in charge of the defense of the country.

    Services did NOT improve when we privatised out postal services. Same story with our public transportation.
    Privatisation is generally not a good thing when how much money you make of it is far less important than that it actually works well.

    Additionally, one of the reasons for the performance issues you mention is that The USPS is at a cost disadvantage. They are required (as they should be) to provide services at the same pricing scheme for every Zip-Code of The US, which would be one of the first things that a private firm would start sawing at. Rural America (you know, that place most of the food comes from?) has it tough enough already.

    As Carabas says, there are some things that should not be assessed with the metrics of market commerce, unless the goal is to exploit as many as possible for the benefit of as few as possible. Too many of us in The US seem unable to wrap our heads around that concept (unless speaking of Defense).

    Agreed.

    So of course now our government is gradually privatising our national health service and our education system.

    Friggin' YouTube! I'm sure I'm not the only one considering the changes they've made with their algorithms, but once again I find I'm subscribed to some channel I have no interest in and did not seek out!

    What makes you say that exactly?

    Like Esmerelda I get, she's flirty, seductive at times and does the pole dance. Nani...wears Daisy Dukes ? Cass and Gogo are snarky ?

    Nobel Prizes.
    Pulitzer Prizes.
    Wolf Prizes
    JFK Profile in Courage awards.
    RFK Human Rights Awards.
    Academy Awards (Oscars).
    Grammy Awards.
    Tony Awards.
    Emmy Awards.
    Pritzker Prize.
    Fields Medal
    Abel Prize
    Chern Prize
    Gauss Prize
    Holberg Prize
    Johan Skytte Prize

    They say the purpose of the awards and prizes were to recognize a person's achievements.

    But does every one of them really deserve recognition? I have no doubt some recipients were worthy of the recognition that the awards bestowed on them but other recipients are less deserving of the awards or prizes than the ones who didn't win any.

    All those dangerous curves -- but admittedly a lot of that is tradition, going back to before the days of Betty Boop, and paid full homage by Jessica Rabbit.




    Also -- add Chel to the list.

    I think that women who are vocal about female characters getting 'fridged' (to this day, i still think the term is idiotic and one-sided. Try telling that to a Simone worshipper) but are silent when male characters get raped are hypocrites, in my honest opinion.

    Fridging doesn't deal with rape, and male characters are rapes what? Once per decade or so? People have topped being silent about it anyway quite some time back.

    Chris Webber should apologize along with other Michigan athletwsthat accepted illegal benefits because more than 3 years later Michigan athletics suffered for his and other sins that they weren't responsible for.
    Otherwise persons have utterly logical valid fair reasons to dislike, loathe, or despise him and going to any Michigan games will continue to remind them of old awful wounds since he hasn't apologized.

    Also the NCAA committee should give every ex Michigan athletes that suffered for Chris Webber's and others transgressions by giving them tickets to the Bahamas, Disney World and 10,000 bucks.

    Nick Saban when he writes his autobiography book it'll be the whole truth and nothing but the truth that is delusional and bullcrap.

    He said while still the head coach Of the Miami Dolphins he's not taking the Crimson Tide football head coach job.
    He left because ge accepted that job, so either he lied or changed his mind which makes the whole I'm not going to be tje Alabama coach that he said awful.
    He also left LSU, and Michigan State so if he says he didn't quit 3 jobs LSU, Miami Dolphins and Michigan State he's utterly lying.

    Also persons are utterly delusional saying that the Pats didn't cheat with Spygate which yes they did it's egregious and invasive tactics in the same league as Watergate, and the whole unintelligent bullcrap other teams use those tactics is unfounded and unbelievable statements with 0 intelligent credible logical evidence.
    Yes other teams find signals in the legal moral ways including films of the games not by recording walk throughs and practices without those teams knowledges which is Watergate tactics.
