Like a storm that returns stronger each time, efforts to push micro-stamping regulations onto gun-owning Americas are here again. And this time around, The New York Times is pushing it, Time magazine is pushing it and other outlets of the same political persuasion are doing their level best to show us how micro-stamping the firing pins in our firearms could reduce crime by miraculous levels overnight.
IRONIC? (“The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to “please do not feed the animals” because, “the animals may grow dependent and not learn how to take care of themselves.””)
Isn’t It Ironic?
Meanwhile, the Park Service, also part of the Department of Agriculture, asks us to “please do not feed the animals” because, “the animals may grow dependent and not learn how to take care of themselves.”
On the Acceptance of Evil…”I remember the day after the 9-11 attacks, going to the post office to buy stamps and being handed a packet of Islamic”Eid” stamps recently released by the post office. I politely asked…”
We are currently living in a time of the mass acceptance of evil. Daily the case is being successfully made for things such as homosexual marriage, abortion, pedophilia, the justification of Islamic terror. People are unwittingly being conditioned to accept the previously unacceptable through the various forms of mass media.
It is surreal to see otherwise reasonable people advocate what only a short while ago would have been unthinkable to them. How have we gotten to this point? Evil has been successfully marketed to mainstream America.
I remember the day after the 9-11 attacks, going to the post office to buy stamps and being handed a packet of Islamic”Eid” stamps recently released by the post office. I politely asked for anything but Islamic stamps, only to receive this retort from the normally friendly postman, ”Christianity has done just as much terror as any other religion, we don’t have any room to complain!”.

USPS Censors Netstamps

I use Netstamps because it is more efficient if you do a lot of mailing. Netstamps lets you select an image to be put on the stamp blanks. However, I’ve now learned that they censor non-PC images.

The United States Postal Service announced this week that all future first class postage stamps sold will be the so-called “forever stamps” that have no face value but are guaranteed to cover the cost of mailing a first class letter, regardless of how high that cost may rise in the future. Currently these stamps are sold for 44 cents, but will increase in price if and when the Post Office hikes rates.
Apart from sounding the death knell of the one cent stamp, the news is interesting on two fronts: it provides insight into remarkably irresponsible government accounting, and it provides investors with the most attractive Federally-guaranteed inflation protected asset available on the market today.
Over the past fifty years, the USPS has raised the rates on first class postage 20 times. During that time the stamp prices have gone up more than 1,100%. Given the increasing frequency of rate hikes (three in the last four years) the Post Office claims it made the move to forever stamps to save money on printing costs and to increase customer convenience. The public seems to appreciate the product and has snapped up a staggering 28 billion forever stamps since they became available in 2007.
But the real reason behind the permanent switch is that it allows the Post Office to hide its insolvency behind phony accounting numbers, setting itself up for a massive taxpayer financed bailout in the not too distant future.
