    A new commercial has been airing touting Fedex ground is faster than UPS. I see the writing on the wall.

    Link?
    BTW, they've been saying that for awhile.

    It has been faster to a lot of Midwest states, for example if you are moving packages from the west coast. It's part of the rail vs truck setup.

    Our shipping lanes have been faster for years now.

    But how many commercials have they run claiming that? Ground will really grow with advertising, and probably they are now comfortable enough with the infrastructure to start advertising.

    UPS moves almost everything by rail once it exceeds a certain distance. This is nothing new for either carrier.

    So, those are the magic words you whisper in Fred's ear for more freight?

    Reminds me of old GWB saying "bring em on".

    Probably the same end result. Right now, Fred, MT3, bbsam, and all the rest of them are saying "Mission Accomplished". Maybe Fred will land on the ramp somewhere and run through a banner waving to his many fans.

    or any sporting event anyone has been to in the past 20 years.

    No, Revenge Red is more my style. I'm going to enjoy it when Fred steers the ship in a different direction with Ground and you're all wondering what hit you.

    you just have no frame of reference, do you? Nothing promised, nothing stolen. Scares you, doesn't it? You took things for granted, I haven't had that luxury.

    I know, you're an example of American Exceptionalism, the hallmark of the Tea Party.

    No. I am an example of a contractor. Nothing more nothing less.

    If someone is willing to work for 10.00 an hr, no insurance, no retirement plan and no overtime how soon will Smith realize he doesn't need the middle man?

    He needs the middle man to make the scam look legit. If he can figure out a way to screw the contractor out of a penny...he will. I'm sure they are trying to figure out a way to do it too, but then they'd be employees. Wait, they already are. So confusing...and legally questionable.
