So . . . Before 2020, we need to: 1) Start growing our own fruits and vegetables, OR start forming community cooperatives that serve the same purpose.2) Start re-learning how to make our own clothing without the benefit of high-speed sewing machines. (For the uninitiated, that means buying our own fabric, creating our own patterns, and stitching by hand).3) Start re-learning the ages-old system of receiving mail from complete strangers. (The only real down-side to that approach is that you might never know what was actually in the envelope when it was entrusted to the carrier).
I was sorry to hear about farmers and ranchers and post office workers. What will those services be replaced with? Seems if any jobs should be deleted, it should be articles like this and the people that write them.
My mailbox has been a mini-PObox serving about a dozen houses since the early 1980s. That was REQUIRED by the Post Office back then, so they would not need to have a PO delivery person come to mailboxes at the houses\' front door, in the weather, braving dogs and children, and saving time in the process. That sounds good, but the mail isn\'t sorted roght, and/or not put in the correct slot. Since the very first year, we all have been having mail either not delivered, or put in the wrong box. Sometimes the machines are not sorting mail to the correct street.Additionally, I know I have not been receiving all my mail. The really bad news is that I don\'t know what mail I am missing, by the fact that I cannot know all the mail I am supposed to receive. I can only know about what mail I expect, and don\'t receive. One had a bank card collection person call DEMANDING to know my new address! Apparently it got put in the wrong box, and whoever got it marked it something like \"No such person at this address\", and it was returned to the bank. All that happened before the payment due date, so that all came as a surprise. It did have an effect on my credit rating, a;;egedly due to a \"new address\" flag in the credit bureau records. I had not moved, and still have not moved in over 15 years. There have been as many as six different addresses in at least one of my credit reports.
If it were up to the T party people, everything and everyone would be deleted, especially anyone involved in government services.
I read stupid comments under articles everyday but this is up there with the most ignorant comments I have read in a while. I will agree that TEA Party people would love to see a HUGE reduction in government employees right along with the total elimination of many departments on the Federal level and the restrictions that go along with those job killing agencies. The private sector would see huge growth at that point and the TEA Party people would love to see that. So are you an east coats liberal that lives outside of reality or a college student who has never paid taxes?
I've been a medical transcriptonist for many years. No more. There's a computer program called voice recognition and it's taken my job. )-:
A nother BULLSHIT article from AOL! When do these airheads gonna figure out WE WANT to see the article not the teaser.
THE POST OFFICE ???? WILL STILL BE AROUND FOR MANY YEARS TO COME, BUT SMALLER. I PREDICT THAT ALL MAIL BOXES WILL BE ON THE CURB, SO CARRIERS WON'T HAVE TO GET OUT OF THEIR TRUCKS.MANY SMALL OFFICES WILL BE SHUT DOWN----AND POSSIBLY 100% P.O. BOXES ??? NO MORE MAIL DELIVERY TO YOUR HOUSES--OR---BUSINESSES . RETIRED MAIL CARRIER WITH 32 YEARS.
THE END OF AMERICA.. WE WILL BE DEPENDING ON THIRD WORLD COUNTRIES FOR OUR FOOD, CHEAPER TO BUY IT FROM OTHER COUNTRIES. GREED IS DESTROYING AMERICA.........QUESTION THAT NO ONE IS ASKING ?????? WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO WITH THE MILLIONS WHO WILL BE UNEMPLOYED ????? OUT OF CONTROL LEGAL IMMIGRATION ????? NO JOBS AND TOO MANY PEOPLE ??? I SEE A HUGE PROBLEM COMING.
Calm down, this article is completely exaggerating about these carriers are going extinct. All these jobs aren't exactly in high demand but they're all extremely necessary. These are just going to shrink a significant amount. I doubt we are going to have an unemployment rate that will get as high as it did in the Depression, there's a lot of jobs that are in pretty high demand right now and I'm sure more job opportunities are going to open up in the future.
Don\'t you worry. We\'re going to raise taxes to 100% to pay for the people on welfare and unemployment. Plus with the taxes the undocumented workers pay, we\'ll have a big surplus. Then people will stop bashing the tea party. It will be a real utopia.
Jobs and careers are always being created and disappear every generation throughout history. Among the careers lost include poney express riders, swordsmith and knife polishers, horse grooms, chimney sweepers.
Shrinking maybe, going extinct I seriously doubt it. We are still shipping bills and packages and someone still has to grow food.
Hope you're right and that they'll continue grow FOOD on American soil.
Why aren\'t MLB umpires & audible car alarm manufacturers included...?
