Where I Stand Politically

I am neither Democrat nor Republican, for both suggest that I may be stagnant on certain issues with an unwillingness to learn. Nor am I Moderate, Centrist, or any other political affiliation, for all suggest the same limitations.

I will never stop learning, and when my decision is required, I reach that decision logically after considering all available facts. I am a human being as fallible as any other, full of hope for what mankind can create and fear for what it can destroy, and I do not stand with, nor do I identify with, any particular political party.

Green Shipping?

Occasionally, I hear someone ask which shipping company is the most environmentally conscious. Look, the answer is simple. If you want to ship something in a “green” manner, just mail it. Why? Because the mail truck would have gone to the destination regardless.

Mail trucks deliver mail to the destination every day except Sunday, while most delivery services follow the same schedule but only travel to the destination when they have a package to deliver. No matter what kind of fuel they use or how high-tech their trucks are, two trucks will always release more carbon emissions than one truck, so choose the one that already has to visit the destination.
