    I'm a state employee and really is disheartening to hear the rabid rants against public employees lately. The Koch brothers & company don't care how many lives they have to trample in their fight to destroy public unions and government institutions.

    I'm sure that if more people knew what the Republicans have done to try and kill the USPS with such an underhanded accounting trick, they would come to its defense en mass. I've received great service from USPS over my lifetime; It is an American tradition that is worth saving!

    I just sent an email to President Obama asking him to lead the fight to save USPS. Hopefully, enough others will also take action.

      ...i sometimes tell people that i like my job, it's my employer that i have problems with. i remember 24 years ago when i put my letter carrier uniform on for the first time i was proud of it. i could not believe i was part of the federal goverment. the first few years were like heaven for me. but the last 10 years or so they have ground that pride right out of me. i know a lot of good carriers that took much pride in their work that have just quit mentally the job. they show up and do what they have to but thats it. now we are waiting on a new contract and of course management is crying poverty. sad to say but the USPS has become a soul crushing place to work. the really sad thing is it DID NOT have to be like this.

      •  Nope, your yet another victim of the conservative (0+ / 0-)

        Right's war on public employees. Hopefully, we can put a stop to it come November, at least at the Federal level.
