    Default USPS to Cut Another 35,000 Jobs: Can the Post Office Be Saved? Should It Be?

    Many of the plants to be effected by this consolidation will be in rural areas. For such small communities, these closing will have a huge negative impact on the quality of life in terms of both jobs and the fabric of the society, as going to the Post Office for some remains a social experience and a way to actually see government in action, as Aaron Task points out in the accompany video.

    If not for the change in the laws about pension accounting pushed through by the right wing the Post Office would be showing a surplus of revenue,..

    Two things are happening here,...First the right wing wants all pensions eliminated both public and private,............And second the Post Office is the hardest line of communication for the right wing to monitor, They can't wire tap a letter, But they can tap you phone, email, texts, Ext,............

    If they can monitor our communication they can control, And that is what all of it is really about, The right wing want to own you from the cradle to the grave,......

    As much as I hate the thought of anyone losing their job, much less a union job, it is a fact that with the decline of mail volume due to the Internet is a fact.

    Just as the telegraph replaced the Pony Express. The telegraph was faster and cheaper just as the Internet is today. The Pony Express ended just two days after the completion of the wire to San Francisco.

    While no doubt the rural areas will be the hardest hit, the progress of technology will not be stopped.

    Sadly you are correct. I think there is no turning back now. And yes, it will hit areas like my state very badly.

    Youngstown News, Ryan: Change pension law for future USPS retirees

    Where do you get this stuff Walleye? Is everything that is going broke a right wing conspiracy? The USPS is a dead horse. No amount of manic accounting will bring it back. Another government bomb. Imagine what a disaster government run universal health care will be. The government can't do sheeit right
