The post office is a part of U.S. history in a new corrupt world that is manipulated by big money. It is the money people that dictate post office policy not the voting public.

It is the Congress which sets USPS policy, as our Founders intended.

Definitely an issue that needs to be addressed, but remember, YOU pull the ballot lever.

No, I do write in votes because the ballot is rigged. To get on the ballot requires the money.

Yeah, well the rest of us don't live in Mississippi, crosspatch.

We live in the United States. We didn't just get around to repealing our slavery laws last year.

You still got a problem with 1930's-style politics? Maybe you should come out from behind the "Mississippi Wall" and modernize.

Slavery is alive and well as we buy things made for less than one dollar an hour. Even in the U.S. we have people working as slaves as few will give up low process to eliminate the use of slaves.

The laws are selectively enforced to benefit those in power.

Federal agents are transferred when they report slavery.

The government does not want to cause problems for it big campaign donors.

Sure I do.

I think that the postage should have been raise to 50cents. Pennies cost too much to produce.

Why not $1? The real problem is that junk mail postage is way too low.

Then send e-mail or pay with plastic. It comes down to higher fuel costs and higher benefits such as health care. You can not supply everyone with middle class life in a world of finite resources.

The post office is mandated by law to have a FULLY FUNDED pension plan for every employee. Imagine you have to have the full retirement money in the bank for an employee who is only 23, even though he won't retire until age 65 and nobody knows when he will croak!

Where did you go to school? Pensions first need to be vested that takes 5 years then they are calculated by a formula of years worked and earnings. People can and do retire before 65 and government gives credit for other government work. You can retire from military after 20 years then double dip at the post office. Inflation is another issue as they get retirement raises, depending on the government playing with interest rates and money supply that fuel inflation as well as your taxes. Welcome to corrupt government and your lack of understanding when you vote the crooks in.

Then "big money" isn't doing a good job, since the USPS is always teetering on the brink of financial failure, and is forced to raise rates while understanding that each increase puts them closer to the end, as customers flee to other mail systems.

You would think "big money" would have a better business plan.
