I wish there was a way to get off the list for receiving shite mail.

Stupid coupon packs and stupid coupon papers that immediately get thrown away. Plus the BS from State Farm or Cox. It's all spam mail basically. Way to really waste paper guys. Good job.


It gets WAY worse during elections. Political spam mail has gotten insane!

Well, I'd admit. Having Saturdays off to watch LSU football in the fall wouldn't suck.

And what is the purpose of USPS anymore, other than to get coupons and weekly sales from grocery stores.



As a business owner, I receive my checks via USPS. In addition, they they are cheaper than FedEx and UPS for shipping small packages.

No kidding.

At most 10% of my mail is legitimate, and almost all of that could be done paperless just as easy.

Funny, just now I had to drive 5 miles to meet the UPS guy for my "red" package. This happens all the time because my company is far from town, and when there aren't enough AM packages in my area to make it profitable the UPS guy calls the few of us that do have packages to meet him in town.

Privatize all the things!

The agency in November reported an annual loss of a record $15.9 billion for the last budget year and forecast more red ink in 2013, capping a tumultuous year in which it was forced to default on billions in retiree health benefit prepayments to avert bankruptcy.


CNBC

quote:

I think their budget for 2013 had them running a $1.4 billion deficit.


Hell that's an improvement since they lost 15+ billion in 2012.

Liberal Facebook friends are blaming the GOP for this. Why is it their fault?

Because they aren't charging nearly enough, which is one of the reasons they're bleeding money.

From the same article you linked:
quote:

The agency's biggest problem — and the majority of the red ink in 2012 — was not due to reduced mail flow but rather to mounting mandatory costs for future retiree health benefits, which made up $11.1 billion of the losses. Without that and other related labor expenses, the mail agency sustained an operating loss of $2.4 billion, lower than the previous year.... No other government agency is required to make such a payment for future medical benefits. Postal authorities wanted Congress to address the issue last year, but lawmakers finished their session without getting it done. So officials are moving ahead to accelerate their own plan for cost-cutting.

You mean the entity that has lubricated our economy for 2 centuries, and continues to do so today? Whether it gets dismantled or privatized, it will take a long time to handle either transition.
