If there was no union, no pension fund, then we would have a profitable PO, which would mean we would still have Saturday service. The union, once again is to blame for the issues surrounding American jobs. American Crytal Sugar, now the PO, what next. Unions are destroying the American Worker and the American Work ethic, which is why jobs are going overseas. Wake up people!!

<quoted text>Postal Service Reports Loss of $15 Billion
By RON NIXON
Published: November 15, 2012
WASHINGTON — The Postal Service on Thursday reported a record $15.9 billion net loss for the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30, bringing the financially troubled agency another step closer to insolvency.
The widely expected loss, more than triple the service’s loss last year, included accounting expenses of $11.1 billion related to two payments that the agency was supposed to make into its future retiree health benefits fund. But because of revenue losses, the post office was for the first time forced to default on these payments, which were due in August and October. Nearly $5 billion in other losses were because of a decline in revenue from mailing operations. The agency also reached its $15 billion borrowing limit from the Treasury.

Al Franken's Fanciful Post Office Fix


By Devin Leonard on February 15, 2013

The U.S. Postal Service has another would-be savior: Al Franken, the U.S. senator from Minnesota and former Saturday Night Live cast member. On Thursday, he and seven Democratic colleagues introduced a bill to “modernize” the financially troubled agency, which is losing $25 million a day.

By “modernize,” Franken and his allies mean expand the Postal Service’s operations. This is from his press release:“The measure would let the Postal Service look for innovative new ways to generate revenue by allowing post offices to notarize documents, issue hunting and fishing licenses, and allow shipments of wine and beer—all services currently prohibited at post offices.”

Hey Al, maybe the Post office can install soda fountains too.

Or maybe the Post Office can open up an internet cafe. Then my Slewsie dear can be close to his friends while surfing for porn on line.

That's an idiotic question. Of course they do. What do you think all the USPS trucks do all day?

Actually, both UPS & Fed-ex use the Post Office to deliver parcels.... Feel free to remove your mailbox, unless you're simply a liar, again.
