New York - White House hopeful Senator John McCain expressed concern on Thursday over DHL's proposal to hire United Parcel Service Inc to fly its packages nationwide, as it violates laws intended to encourage market competition.

in my neck of the woods,
dhl is not competitive.
fedex is first, ups second.
Teddy Roosevelt he is not.
And the GOP continues its slide into oblivion led by a Democrat...
Gee, Fred Smith must be on the short list after all.
With these two candidates, I feel like a guy that that has to choose between to prostitutes for involuntary sex. One has AIDS, the other gonorrhea.
Some choice, huh?
McCain needs to get to DC and express support for the House Reps. And again call for the President to call back Congress into special session, and lobby other Republicans in the Senate and House to get on board.
That’s the leadership that is called for now, and that would jack up his favorables with the voting population over the Tire Gauge Guru.
I cannot vote for a man like that for President.
Looks more and more like I will be sitting this one out.
At least McCain is trying to save jobs, between 8000-10,000. what’s so bad about that/
Not voting for McCain put Obama right smack dab in the oval office. I’d rethink my position if I were you.
The power of Congress continues to amaze me. Now McCain proposes that we stop a German company from hiring an American company to fly their packages around.
Maybe instead he should go to Berlin and give a speech.
The purchase of Airborne by the foreigners may well have been illegal, but the justice department just covered its eyes.
Anti-trust laws have never saved the consumer a buck. I’m willing to be dissuaded, but nobody has come forward with any analysis to the contrary.
And I feel in much a better position to persuade McCain of the counterproductivity of antitrust than I am to convince The One of such folly.
Charlie Rose interview with McCain, 11/27/2007
McCain: ... bring in the brightest and the smartest people you can find in America.
ROSE: Who do you think they are? In other words - who would you like to see - name me a person that you think would be appropriate -- one of four or five -- to run the Pentagon, the Pentagon...
McCain: Fred Smith
ROSE: Federal Express guy. He's the kind of guy you'd like to see run the Pentagon?
McCain: Sure. John Chambers.
ROSE: John Chambers. Cisco
McCain: Yeah. All of these people that have - I'd ask Warren Buffett to come back and run a commission to reform the institutions of government.
DHL is off our list as a shipper. I use FedEx when it must be there overnight. UPS is my preferred ground shipper. My last UPS overnight was left on the truck in Pocatello. It turned into 2 day service. UPS made good...they refunded the entire shipping fee.
One of my suppliers in Texas uses UPS exclusively. He ships Russian kettlebells. UPS reimburses a loss should that occur. FedEx does not. It's pretty simple for him. The shipping costs are nearly has high as the value of the product. A guaranteed delivery or reimbursement is the only thing that makes sense. When I received a 53 lb KB in place of the 70 lb KB I ordered, the shipper agreed to let me keep it for just the cost of the shipping AND shipped the right one the next day.
The popular vote for POTUS in the fall election is meaningless. The President will be elected by the Electors of the Electoral College. Your opportunity to affect the election of the POTUS passed with the primaries. See Article 2, Section 1 of the US Constitution for details.
Your vote in your Congressional district, state and local elections are very important come November. Please don't throw that way. Real conservative change will come from those areas, not from who sits in the Whitehouse......
the dhl driver here was so angry one day that i thought he’d physically beat up our apt manager.
my lawyer uses ups exclusively and it works fine.

So you think that if the owners of a company want to sell it to somebody else, that the government should step in and stop them from selling their own property? How would you like it if the government stopped you from selling your house, or your car, or some stock you own?
