    In terms of government inefficiencies, the Post Office isn't up on that list. Things like the Department of Education are well higher on that list than the Post Office.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    Excuse Maker in Chief blames yet again

    whom HASN'T he targeted?

    he's gone after doctors, insurance companies, cable tv, town hall attendees, george w what's-his-name, rush limbaugh, the rich, cambridge cops, republicans, his own party which has failed to get health care done

    he's criticized pelosi's congress for not writing up a plan with his "favorite" pay-for provision, taxing cadillac benefit packages, not part of waxman/rangel, a mere proposal in the senate by john kerry, and an idea for which THE CHIN savaged doddering john mccain during campaign

    meanwhile, maxine waters has called out rahm the ram for recruiting too many bluedogs, and gene green of houston has questioned the palsied speakeress' perspicacity for bringing up cap and trade before doing health care

    THE CHIN threw his own gramma, that typical white person, under his bus

    and his "spiritual mentor," as well, the man from whom he got the title for his first book, "audacity of hope," the man who just a few weeks before assassinating him THE CHIN said he could no more turn his back on the rev and his GD church of chickens roosting than he could his own community

    who's next, obama?

    gallup?

    the american voter?

    LOL!

    Since anybody with a brain knows the President meant that the USPS operates at a loss in order to provide services at a low price-point--I think the majority of postal workers know that and this is just partisan hacks trying to make the embarrass the President.

    Next.

    True. At least the post office actually provides a service.

    I think the Post Office does OK. I get nearly all my mail nearly all the time. Which is not bad considering they deliver billions of pieces per day. And being able to send a letter across country for less than 50 cents isn't bad. That being said, if I REALLY needed to make sure something got somewhere by a certain time I'm not using the Post Office. But I give them a solid B. And in terms of your average government bureaucracy they get an A.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    usps is bankrupt by 6 bil, and it's begging congress to change its mandate that mail be delivered six days a week, wants to cut a day

    Postmaster General: Mail Delivery May Be Cut Back Due To Struggling Economy - cbs2chicago.com

    january, 2009

    Massive deficits could force the post office to cut out one day of mail delivery per week, the postmaster general told Congress on Wednesday.

    Postmaster General John E. Potter asked lawmakers to lift the requirement that the agency deliver mail six days a week.

    Faced with dwindling mail volume and rising costs, the post office was $2.8 billion in the red last year and, "if current trends continue, we could experience a net loss of $6 billion or more this fiscal year," Potter said in testimony for a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs subcommittee.

    And, despite annual rate increases, Potter said 2009 could be the first year since 1946 that the actual amount of money collected by the post office declines.

    "It is possible that the cost of six-day delivery may simply prove to be unaffordable," Potter said. "I reluctantly request that Congress remove the annual appropriation bill rider, first added in 1983, that requires the Postal Service to deliver mail six days each week."
