    Anybody want to buy a post office?

    Prime real estate across the country. Here is a site for browsing if you would like to buy 1 or 2?

    Post Office For Sale

    The US government has put this massive sell off in the capable hands of Dick Blum, chairman of the CB Richard Ellis Group (CBRE)

    Now that sounds like a sweet gig! 3% or even 6% commission if you could convince someone not to get a buyers agent!

    So I haven't crunched too many #s, but it looks like maybe 19 billion? At 3% you would make nearly 600 million $.. I am in the wrong business!

    At least this was the case last year, Good luck everybody!
    Thomas Paine-
    "Government even in its best state is but a necessary evil," Paine wrote, and "in its worst state an intolerable one." Like many Americans today, Paine believed that government added insult to injury by using tax dollars in ways that were actually harmful to the public. "When we suffer," wrote Paine, "or are exposed to the same miseries by a government which we might expect in a country without government, our calamities are heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer." To Paine, "securing freedom and property to all men, and, above all things, freedom of religion," were the only legitimate functions of government. Americans generally agreed, and went to war to achieve this vision.

    "People whose lives are barren and insecure seem to show a greater willingness to obey than people who are self-sufficient and self-confident. To the frustrated, freedom from responsibility is more attractive than freedom from restraint. They are eager to barter their independence for relief of the burdens of willing, deciding and being responsible for inevitable failure. They willingly abdicate the directing of their lives to those who want to plan, command and shoulder all responsibility." ~Eric Hoffer “The True Believer”

    The ultimate result of shielding men from the effects of folly is to fill the world with fools. --Herbert Spencer, English Philosopher (1820-1903)

    I know people who work for the post office - They keep telling me "the post office is NOT owned by the Government" <- Wonder if your post would wake them up?

    Doubt it. Lol. They may not work for the government, but the government can buy and sell them!

    True that! The kings and queens keep getting richer! Isn't Dick's operation based in San Fran? If that's near you maybe you could get a job other! Looks lucrative!

    This could get political and that's as bad around here lately as chewing your sandwich into an "L" shape in the school lunchroom so I'll just sit back and read.

    Back in the 80's I looked at one for sale, price wasn't bad, except roof leaked, furnace was bad and remodel was to expensive. I think it's still vacant.
