It's funny how UPS and FEDX can make money. But the GOVERNMENT RUN. Postal service is beyond bankrupt. Just goes to show you the government is no good at business.

Ya think maybe the fact that Congress is requiring them to fund their pension fully upfront, but won't let them set rates independently...has anything to do with it?

Or do "facts"...interfere too much with your agenda?

That won't fix the problem. The problem is giving money to people who aren't producing any income.

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.

Its how our govt works!

With the govt, it doesnt matter, they just borrow more money. With a private sector company, its sink or swim. Private sector will ALWAYS be better and ran more efficiently.
