Interesting.

When doing deliveries like that where postage is affixed but the letter does not go through the post office, is one allowed to use the mail box of the recipient?

Does the letter enjoy protection against theft as does other mail at that point?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Haven’t you ever heard of ELF? They are eco terrorist group and have been around for a long, long time.

Makes you wonder why the NYSlimes chose this guy to write about?

Great post, Crazieman.

I was a “Casual” Mail Handler in Portland, Oregon for three six month tours during the early 00’s.

My timing was perfect.

After I left in 2003 they cut the pay, ended all OT, and the Unions got ultra strict about what Casuals could or could not do.

My most valuable skill was that I had the temperament and the maturity to get along with all the “Lifers,” even the completely insane ones.

ELF is a terrorist group. If he is/was a member I HOPE someone’s watching him.

The left would consider FReepers to be terrorists, do you hope they are watching us without warrants/due process?

If someone here is blowing up people and their property, yes.

I assume there is no one here doing that.

If only it were that simple. Do you really think the folks in power do not consider us to be some kind of threat?

You are confusing and mixing issues. There really are people trying to kill us. The fact that there really are bureaucracies trying to enslave us doesn’t mean we let the terrorists run wild.

The issues blur together when the bureaucracy is using the threat of terrorism to enslave us. This has been happening for over a decade. The only difference is the letter next to the name of the person occupying the White House.

Why do you say that? A guy with an R by his name started this.

If I remember correctly, the USPS scams all mail anyway for barcodes and there is a complex system that uses photo scans for handwriting recognition. I’m assuming that there now exists technology that can record every piece of mail and potentially save an image of it.

why do I feel like a mobster... being assumed and treated as guilty until proven innocent.

Oh I know it started mostly under Bush (although Clinton deserves a small amount of credit), and I wasn't clear, just trying to make the point that any of us could be considered potential terrorists depending on who is in the WH.

And that threat of terrorism will be used to erode the Constitution over time, since both parties seem happy with that path.
