Save The Post Office - Over Stamp

5 posts / 0 new

An Ed Schultz show caller had the idea to support the post office by over stamping your mail. It is not a solution, but it is a great way to show support. Just add a extra 5, 10 or forever stamp and write a supportive message on the outside of the envelope.

The real solution is putting a LOT of pressure on Congress to get rid of that silly pension funding law that makes them put away money for carriers not even born yet. Post Office revenue is actually benefitting from the Interent due to online companies shipping by USPS. Don't believe the right wing gremlin BS.

I agree.

The message on the outside of the envelope should be SaveThePostOffice.com. This would help educate the recipient. Education is the key. If the general public understood the issue the GOP would cave like they did for the 9/11 first responders health care bill.

I also think they should drop delivery service on Saturday. I even know members of the postal union who think that is a good idea because they often wind up rotating to do that extra day. You could still have the offices open for pick up and sending things though.

Discontinuing Saturday delivery is being pushed to eliminate 1/6 of the carrier workforce or about roughly the same number as there are military vets working for the USPS. There is no projection that would yield savings in the remotely near term because there would be years of legal issues and nationwide seniority bid-downs in every post office across the country. It's a farce, just like the 2006 Postal Enhancement Act.
