“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night..."-Persia

The original saying is a little different and it’s really not the official motto of the U.S. Postal service. In fact they don’t have one.

“Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these courageous couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”

This motto originally was coined long ago during the war between the Greeks and the Persians about 500 BC. Herodotus, a Greek historian wrote about the [Persian] postal couriers of the time noting their diligence and perseverance to deliver letters and packages even as war raged all around. [Note: Round of silver was coin of the day. - circa 500 BC.]

Neither laugh nor cry. Use your wits to save you from the 'legal tenderers' of the day.

“Neither bond, nor loan, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these 'legal tenderers' from the swift collection of their 'fiscal cliff' rounds” [Note: Round of silver disappeared from being coin of the day. - circa 1965.]

END the FED.
