The Postmaster General is a politician who has no business experience. That's what I heard on television anyway.

The Pre-funding requirement is for employees that have not even been hired yet! After Jan 1 1984 the USPS went to a 401K style retirement. The pensions were basicly cut in half, and the employees started paying into social security. Now two thirds of their retirement is now dependent on their individual contributions. Not as great as it once was.

Its the. IRS not the PO thats in charge of healthcare compliance. Same bad deal and equally bad! I have never used the PO for anything impt because simply put they suck. UPS is my choice since they actually keep their schedules as promised. What a concept!

Oh, the IRS, I feel so much better now. Maybe they could get some assistance from the DMV.

They have to deliver 6 days a week 'cause there is no way all the catalogs and bulk rate would fit in my box in 3 to 5 days of delivery. Funny how my mail is delivered 3 hours early when he is going fishing.

You're absolutely right- as if the Facts matter!

The decline of the Postal System is sorry proof of the falsity of the mantra that "privatization is the answer to all our woes"...the beauty here is that everybody will STILL blame "The Gummint" instead of the profiteers that are raking off the dough...

Of course, my only real beef is that I'm not in on the take!

I have had absolutely no problem(s) with any of the delivery services. Sadie can tell from the back yard when a brown, white or red/white/blue truck is in front of my house. I did have one package from China get lost in the mail, though. It never did show up, so I'm gonna assume it was never sent. Seller replaced it... no questions asked.

The postal service (oxymoron) is NOT a privately run corporation. Most every move they make is controlled by congress, and there in lies the rub...

You have several options when sending USPS depending on where you are shipping from and to.. One of them is "overnight" this is offered only between selected post offices (IE: if you are sending a document to Hodunk, You might not be able to get the overnight option) another is 2 day (I think this is universal) and a new one that is currently only in one market is "Same day" (Ship before specified hour, it's delivered the SAME DAY) this may be expanded if it works out.

However the default is 5-7 Business days, Same exactly as UPS or other shippers.

But it is up to the shipper to choose the higher priced faster option.

S-u-u-u-r-e it is....just like every move that Haliburton and/or its subcontractors make is controlled by The Pentagon.

1) Remove "civil service" protections and the USPS "service" would improve steadily. I get a ring at the door from UPS or FedEx and I can't get to the door before the truck is revving up. USPS? HA!!! Anywhere a worker can be shielded from his/her own bad behavior, bad behavior becomes the bar to be cleared; and good folks who are wired to go to work and get the job done hate it, as bad behavior makes everybody look bad.
2) funding retirement is the norm in the US, not the exception. Only stupid institutions who do "cash" accounting in an "accrual" world could even think of not funding their liabilities. If USPS can't do that they should be shuttered because they would be failing their employee obligations.
3) anybody who thinks the USPS has been privatized is smoking crack.
4) there are two PO's near me, they are about 5 minutes apart. One is fairly rural, never ever ever a line at the window, not much business. The other is "downtown" in a small town, has a much higher population density served, frequent lines at the 2 window stations open (of 4 windows). Guess which one is slated to close? You're right, the one with no business.
