Companies that recycle cardboard boxes are overwhelmed after record holiday shopping online. The U.S. Postal Service estimated it would deliver 10 percent more packages in 2017 than the year before.

All of that cardboard is a huge recycling challenge.One after another, a train of trucks unloads at the Burbank Recycle Center near Los Angeles. Natasha Gagarin emptied an SUV packed with empty boxes -- "well over 200," she estimated. As a mom of four, this holiday season was all about convenience."Did

Has anyone noticed that Amazon boxes all seem to be made by International Paper/Georgia Pacific? I should think International Paper would be a good long term investment. Amazon sends out a lot of boxes.

Flatten them and send them back to Amazon! I take mine to the local "Mail Boxes" place. They take them and give them to customers free if they didn´t bring their own box. I know because they offered a Box to me before I knew they would do that.

I did my part to lighten the load on recyclers and help the environment. Like another poster, I burned mine. Free heat and box problem solved.

MSNBC “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski admitted to some recent “fighting” with co-host and fiancé Joe Scarborough, before scolding him for trying to hold her hand on air. “We did lots of fighting over issues, so it should be a good show today,” Brzezinski said.

Not on the air,” she scolded her beau. “We’re on the air. What are you doing?” Scarborough then turned to ask Willie Geist if he should be allowed to hold Mika’s hand.

Four administration officials clarified to CNN that “planning is underway to receive the remains from North Korea in the coming days, although the actual transfer date and location have not been finalized.”

House Speaker Paul Ryan Delays
Amnesty Vote Until Friday
Breitbart 2018 Elections, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 6/21/2018 5:21:26 PM     Post Reply
House Speaker is delaying the vote on his amnesty bill from Thursday to Friday, amid growing evidence that Ryan’s amnesty bill will lose because tens of GOP legislators prefer the bill drafted by Virginia Rep. Bob Goodlatte. GOP leaders are using the time to push members towards a yes vote, and are urging President Donald Trump to use his leverage to sway legislators. (Tweet) The delay is also caused by confusion over changes to the bill. That confusion sparked a heated row Wednesday between Ryan and Rep. Mark Meadows, a leader of the House Freedom Caucus. The confusion is exacerbated

Actor Peter Fonda apologized Wednesday afternoon for a threatening tweet in which he said Americans upset with the White House´s separation of illegal-immigrant families ´should rip Barron Trump from his mother´s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles.´ The first lady´s office conferred with U.S. Secret Service about the incident. The agency wouldn´t say on Wednesday whether it had contacted the aging Oscar-winner directly. Fonda issued a statement hours later, shortly after President Donald Trump signed an executive order forbidding the government from detaining children separately from the adults who brought them across the U.S.-Mexico border. ´I tweeted

Remember Anthony Weiner, also known as “Carlos Danger” — the former congressman who kept texting people pictures of well, umm, that part of his name? It all made quite the splash because he is married to Hillary Clinton’s consigliere and constant sidekick, Huma Abedin. Turns out that Anthony was such a perp — and so enthralled with his own — that he was sexting with a minor. That is a federal offense carrying up to 10 years in prison. So, he got raided by the New York Police Department and the New York office of the FBI. They seized his laptop computer.

Does someone from the Trump family, the Trump Cabinet, or even the Trump administration have to be assaulted or worse, killed, before we accept the fact that a growing number from the far-left have put a rhetorical bounty on their heads. If has-been actor Peter Fonda suggesting Barron Trump be "ripped from his mother´s arms and put in a cage with pedophiles" does not horrify you with the obscene brutality of its message, nothing ever will. From this cauldron of bubbling and putrid hate filled from the twisted minds of enraged liberal politicians, "journalists," entertainers, and academics, spews forth the dangerously
