This week a Covid preventative vaccine manufacturer applied for emergency approval during this pandemic infecting and killing so many people.
Why then has the FDA scheduled a meeting for December 10 to consider the request.? They should be doing that this week !

Theyíre all gone this week because of thanksgiving, then itíll take all of next week to individually review the paperwork for the request, so when the meeting happens the decision will already be made.

The government can NOT do anything correctly

Can't get unenjoyment checks out on time

Thousands of Stimulus checks issued to dead people

And they expect us to believe Buydem/Commula won the election

Your thread title is an oxymoron......no possibility

Kinda like where I work .....if itís logical and makes sense, itís against policy.

The USPS has lost $69 BILLION in the last 11 years, making it the most efficient branch of Government.

Don't you mean "inefficient"? . . . USPS lost revenue due to the ever growing internet use of email and text, not necessarily due to inefficiency on the workers part. Why spend .xx cents on a stamp to send a letter when you can send it anywhere via the above free? Think about it.

Because of the above situation, they tried to " tread water and stay afloat". Hasn't worked very well.

The reason that the Post Office is failing is that they charge foreign shippers, mainly Chinese companies, significantly less than the cost of shipping.

https://www.scmp.com/news/china/diplomacy/article/2169144/chinas-cheap-shipping-advantage-explained

We have no business being in the Global Postal Alliance. It allows foreign companies to deliver goods in the US, much cheaper than US companies, allowing them to out compete American companies on price.

You can website base your company in countries like Canada, by using hosts for your company like Shopify and get much cheaper rates too.

We let other countries screw our people and businesses, through deals made by bribing our politicians.

The U.S. Gov could far surpass that 69 Billion deficit for the USPS in ONE DAY regarding only mail usage for pennies if they wanted to . . . and I think they have, or will think how to apply it in the future. I'll leave it at that. Think about it.

The FDA has probably killed more people by limiting the free market than they've ever saved.

As far as the post office, they shouldn't have ever existed. Now they are practically Amazon's slaves.

There is a post office in every little town around me with a post master in each one, close em. Go to every other day delivery, look at the money I just saved them.

They must be losing big-time on bulk rate postage for sure
Think of the income they could make if all that junk mail paid the same rate as us!

I agree entirely. The holiday is irrelevant when lives are at stake. When I worked at a nuclear power plant holidays didn't matter if the plant was shutdown. People need electricity so we worked until the plant was running again. Apparently keeping the lights on is more important than keeping people alive.

The post office is only failing because CONGRESS,in it;s wisdom,requires it to fully pre-fund pensions and health care. USPS has billions pre-paid for employees they haven't even hired yet.
