I don't understand why everyone is so down on the post office. I have had good service at good rpices over the years. I see all those constituionalists who reject the PO have really studied their constitution so hard that they missed the establishment of the PO in the document. Strict constitutionalists? Not so much.

Pricey PO's have got to go. They have become havens for dysfunctionals and cash cows for managers.

Any doubt.. then visit the USPS headquarters located on pricey L'Enfant Plaza... within building one, two and three. Still in doubt... then visit the unused USPS 'training academy' in pricey Potomac, Maryland.. upon 56 acres of prime residential real estate ($120 million dollars worth) rather than... along with it's 'headquarters'.. in Anacostia at 1/3rd the price . Still in doubt... then speak with a local PO 'manager'. That alone should dissuade any doubt...

Did I fail to mention the three USPS Lear Jets leisurely used by 'management' for trips to nowhere... such as golf course on opposite coasts... and Hawaii.

And... the nine custom new limousines (replaced every two years due to 'obsolescence') used for frequent jaunts to local strip joints and also to the local airport... where the three Lear Jets reside.

The PO is not a business. It is a service for the general public. Waste should be kept in check but not at the expense of going against the constitution.

Last year the United States Post Office posted nearly $16 billion in losses. The three years before then averaged around $5 billion in losses. Now, the USPS Chief is looking at serious ways to save the Post Office which includes the end to Saturday mail and cuts in benefits.

The head of the financially struggling U.S. Postal Service said the agency must be allowed to ease the terms of prepayments into a retiree health-care fund and eliminate general mail delivery on Saturday.

Patrick Donahoe told "CBS This Morning" the agency isn't asking Congress for...
