Was not the alleged efficiency of the US Postal Office
the reason American medicine was hijacked by the DNC
into deathpanel laden and racist ObamaCARE?

There are some under review in my area. These are very small rural offices that will likely be consolidated into nearby larger town POs. The routes won’t be eliminated, just the offices (and Postmaster/clerk).

How about closing the letter-carrier’s UNION, instead?

As one blog put it: Congress in 2006 passed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act, which granted more authority to the Postal Regulatory Commission, comprising five appointed members, and an Office of Inspector General; altered the rate-setting structure for certain mail categories; and mandated that the Postal Service prefund its retiree health benefits plans at more than $5 billion annually. Absent that requirement, USPS would be in the black.

one of the doors at my post office has not been working for over a month.

i’m watching to see how long it takes them to repair it.

a capitalist business would call up a repair shop immediately and get the job done.

not the socialist usps.

meanwhile, the a/c’s cranked up for the comfort of the union. the post office is only 2 miles from the ocean and the climate is sublime.

then, there’s the pool of water next to the building that is killing the landscaping. the automatic sprinklers over water the sloping landscape.

then, there’s the unionized “workforce” inside the building.

They might want to speed up the review process a bit.

The solution is to close about 28,000 small post offices and stations, and replace their delivery service with rural carriers. The remaining offices can provide a much more efficient network of "head out offices" for the rural carriers.

The service improvement for this change has been estimated to be as great as 1.5 days faster from point of origin to the destination customer.

The existing rural system actually gets in the way of providing high quality service.

NOTE: With the arrival of the 9 digit ZIP Code there was no longer a need to change anyone's post office address!

I'm having some difficulty with figuring out why today's postal management is so dissinterested in cutting costs. Is there some rural Senator or Congressman on one of the relevant committees calling the shots here? Or, maybe the Postmaster General has his own personal interest at stake?

It's worth looking into because that's the sort of thing that's always stopped wholesale closures in the past.

The quality of our service has deteriorated significantly in recent years. Between the slow as molasses counter help and the carrier who mangles our mail, I’ve not been very happy with them lately.

The bulk mail section of the us mail, is nothing more than an affirmative action hiring center, sell it to several trucking firms and stop the bleeding and deliver mail three days a week, and no more buying employee houses.

Within the 5 miles from my house to the grocery store there are 5 different post offices.

When you pay your mailmen $90K on 40 cent stamps the model just doesn’t work anymore. Time to cut the wages.

Starting soon medicare payments and insurance premiums are going to be handled w/o paper; they are going to deduct your premiums owed from your SS check and deposit any remainder into your specified bank account. If you have a question about amounts, errors, or just a question, look for that to be handled online.

I recall The Usurping Marxist Onada providing the PO as an example of a successful gov’t enterprise. What happened in the year or so since he said that?

Hello Conservative candidates, do ya think that would make a great campaign ad?

Give the mail to the paper boy (person) to deliver. They seem to hit same places.
