/m56109 MR. MARKET! He hovers above all. He hovers over Janet Yellen when she gives that carefully worded statement at 2:00pm. He hovers over the POTUS. He hovers in every corner in every room of every free and open country. He can drive your interest rates higher or lower. He can tank your currency overnight. Do you have a triple A rating, or are you junk status? He can tank your stock market, or your bond market. Mr. Obama can have his treasury secretary print a magical 20 trillion dollar coin to extinguish our debt overnight. What would Mr. Market say about that? Well, you see that postal pension of yours? It would pretty much be rendered worthless overnight, as our U.S currency would be as worthless as the toilet paper you wipe your ass with. Currency collapse happened in the past, with deadly consequences. You can fool many people, but you can't fool Mr. Market!

/m56108 lol I wonder where they'll find the room. Oprah Winfrey makes the cover of "O", every issue. I wonder how she does it ;)

/m56104 Come on now Boss basher, I know you're smarter than that! I ask again, what force would make sure that magical debt elimination you talk about, could never happen without its consent and terms. Hint; it's NOT the POTUS, congress, treasury secretary, or the federal reserve. Who is it?

Once more: thank GOD that I am retired. I sure feel sorry for people coming into the blue-collar workforce these days, especially at USPS. I've been gone for years now, and I hate to say this, but it's true: I saw the best years of it. And many of those years weren't so damned good. But the next 10-20 years will be a heartbreaking Beatdown of Letter Carriers, on all fronts: Compensation, benefits (retirement), work environment and job security (I cannot speak for Clerks, I never was one).

Here's an article I posted on a different Forum. I find it very intriguing. All blue-collar workers, especially people like US at the Post Office, ought to put on their Thinking Caps, and consider this. If for no other reason, than not to be blind-sided, 20 years from now. Just to provoke some Thought among everyone here, not to argue. Do consider.

There is no such "force", other than the motivation to put an end to Bankers skimming an endless stream of Dividend income, off the debt owed by nations. Right now, there seems to be no motivation; Attempts to 'fix' or 'control' such problems have been limited to "Restructuring" such debt, when the very existence of the debt has become an insurmountable problem, for the (subject) country. Today, Greece. 10 years from now, China. 20 years from now, America. And so on, if everyone sticks to the status quo.

New ideas may be needed. People might be forced to think, about the (formerly) Unthinkable.

/m56094 We had this discussion before. What very powerful force would be hovering over these imaginery debt talks, and the magical disposal of accumulated debt by a country?

/m56100 I haven't, for a long time. The new EE Series bonds are no longer printed; Now they're issued as "E-Bonds". Only a computer record of it, both to you and the Feds.

Do any of you own a U.S. Saving bond? That's part of the National debt. Very small but a part.

Breaking news; Victoria secret will no longer print its glossy catalogs that we all love to deliver. I must admit, I am deeply saddened by this move, and hope they reverse course.
