U.S. Postal Service to stop Saturday mail deliveries

That just frees up more money for the Military Industrial Complex. That $2 billion is about a week's worth of wars. :banana:

Congress and the Bush Admin (intentionally?) completely screwed up the Postal Service back in the early '00s. A strange, stupid story.

8 years ago the Office of Personnel Management determined through an audit that the Post Office had overpaid into the Civil Service Retirement System by 75 billion dollars, Bush put the money into escrow rather than return it to the PO. In 2006 Bush ordered the PO to prepay retiree health care premiums for 75 years into the future at 5.5 billion per year and if not for that mandate the PO would have turned a profit.

Are they going to expedite regular mail/deliveries as compensation for stopping Saturday deliveries?

They're slow as it is...:facepalm

So... the same as we've had in Canada for like a generation now? No biggie, you won't miss Saturday mail once it's gone.

They should take that money they are going to save into education. They are probably going to put into the military section aren't they. **** me... I hope they actually give us more days in the national guard because i am broke :lol
