View Diary: Republicans manufacture a crisis for the Postal Service, and too many Democrats go along (197 comments)

  •  Unfortunately, USPS mgt. at the very tippy-top (8+ / 0-)

    hasn't any interest in the Postal Service's survival, something that's been apparent since the current PMG started issuing bullshit statements about how well USPS could do, and how it could address its challenges (challenges manufactured in large part by the US Congress), if only it was "freed" to "compete".

    In other words, your otherwise excellent suggestion would never gain the approval of the top .01% of Postal Management*.

    (*Not to mention the likely interference it would face from, now that it's in Republican claws, The United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which absorbed, DHS style, the former Post Office Committee.)

    Alito. Kennedy. Roberts. Scalia. Thomas. More important than ever: ERA NOW!

      they play with abortion and voting rights -- they can't make them go away outright so they simply put up enough roadblocks to make them inaccessible.

      Those pubbies are deathly afraid of the free market, aren't they.

      It's not a War On Religion -- it's a War Against Theocracy
