Another wise decision made to favor USA business workers and postal users enacted.

I never read about this in the news, but President Trump just straighten out another folly of past administrations to favor China postal rates over average USA citizens and businesses.

The Purpose of this Post

Is to give another r accolade Score to President Trump for recognizing and doing something for American retail businesses and workers.

King Solomon

When a king sits on his throne to judge, he winnows out all evil with his eyes. (Proverb 20:8)

What’s My Point?

My curiosity of this problem began when I purchased an item on line for $60 that was made in China and came in a box that protected the item using unused USA postal containers anyone can pick up free at a local post office. My first thought was disgusting how the shipper took advantage of the free shipping containers to avoid paying for protective packaging.

Then when my wife baked some cookies to send from Illinois to California to her brother, I asked her how much it cost and was informed she paid $12 for the small standard size container similar to the one used as protective packing.

I wondered how it could be that China could ship an item to me and make money on it if it cost probably as much size wise 6000 miles and still make money if they paid comparable shipping costs based on distance three times further, or approximately $36 in comparison to the cookie’s shipment.

How?

Because of another USA government subsidy called Title 3 shipments that in effect caused USA postal shippers to pay higher shipping costs to subsidize China products being shipped to the USA.

In My Opinion

Thank You President Trump for doing something for USA small businesses  and American users of the tax payer funded postal system of the USA.

Finally, while not a King, we have a President, winnowing (opening) his eyes to rid the evil (unfair trade) practices that has been destroying job opportunities and robbing taxpayers fund for years and doing something about it instead of being an empty suit politician.

Then send a letter of thanks to President Trump for doing something about the folly that has been persisting for years by previous Presidents who think it is better for USA to subsidize other nations shipping costs, even if they contain deadly drugs killing Americans at cheaper rates than we Americans pay.

Regards and good will blogging.
