You are old school and quickly becoming the minority. Paperless billing is the way to go. The USPS would never be able to provide the service to the people right now as Amazon does. Order your essentials in the next 30 minutes get FREE delivery by 2 pm tomorrow. 

 

It's apple's and oranges. Amazon also doesn't need a bail out.

I like Amazon too. Their service is amazing. I do object to their packaging, which is way over the top. But, they are good. However, they are not a substitute for the guy I need to send a check to for my garage rental, nor the book I need to ship, at book rate, which is really cheap, nor the occasional package I need to ship overseas. The post office still serves a very useful function for millions every day. 

 

And let us hope none of the bailout money goes to Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Facebook, or any of the other giants that are making more money that most can count.

It's the airlines. They have never been good business. Too many risks.  Amazon basically functions as the de facto medical, food, and essential goods distributor. Google and Apple... will have more money than the government soon if this keeps up.

 

Here is what one of the greatest CEO of all time said about the company he ran American Airlines.

 

“I’ve never invested in any airline. I’m an airline manager. I don’t invest in airlines. And I always said to the employees of American, ‘This is not an appropriate investment. It’s a great place to work and it’s a great company that does important work. But airlines are not an investment.’”

 

-Robert Crandall

 

Agreed on Amazon's packaging however these days it is made out of very young trees. We have more wood pulp than you can shake a box at these days and it's sustainable.

 

 

For this maybe the government should get involved airlines will always have problems weather, war, disease, economics, fuel prices... 

 

 

The airlines have to be bailed out that isn't even in question.

Have you read the bill? Good, you can help us all and provide us with each and every provision that is skewed towards big corps vis a vis working citizenss.

 

If you cant, then as usual, its just another biased rant based on someone elses thoughts.

You've invited the question....have you read the bill?  If you haven't you won't be able to tell if he has.  Who's on first?

More CNN fuelled nonsense.

 

Dems have voted against urgent relief because it didn't include:

Planned Parenthood funding

A bailout for the Post Office

Crippling new airline regulations

Solar & wind tax credits

Playing politics while Trump plays to beat this crisis.

Do you have a source for your claims?

If you are obtuse enough to think that on the brink of the most destructive economic event in your life the following stupidity is purposely inserted to feed a ridiculous ideology you have lost your mind, let alone stating that it is business as usual. 

 

Here is the part of the stupidity tried by the house:

 

Publication of corporate pay statistics by race and race statistics for all corporate boards

-A bail out on all current debt at the Postal Service

-Required early voting

-Required same day voter registration 

-Provisions on official time for union collective bargaining

-Full offset of airline emissions by 2025

-Publication and reporting of greenhouse gas statistics for individual flights 

-Retirement plans for community newspaper employees

-Federal $15 minimum wage

-Permanent paid leave

-Study on climate change mitigation efforts 

The provisions will apply to the companies and business rescued by the bill. 

 

The topic is the Senate bill.  I'm sure at some time or another Representatives have tried to get some of your list into a House bill, but not as stated ("Required early voting"?  As in "Voter early or you go to jail"?  I doubt it.)  However that is not the topic.

We can all agree the vote early bill doesn't need to be there. 

Is it there?  What is your source?

Thats so mean dude, thats so mean. 🙂 But, sadly true.

 

I could make all sorts of truly shocking TRUTHFUL comments about the virus and who it affects and the politics of that, but that would make me so universaly condemned that I would need to change my name to Milo. But, feel free to PM me.

I suspect, as it is you overestimate your current standing.
