    Amazon & Ebay and on-line shopping will come to its rescue. And blight the down-towns and high-streets the world over.

    YES, this a copy and paste, but it’s easier then writing the whole thing again…
    I live in a very rural part of Kentucky, and have both a P.O. Box address in town, (About a 20 mile trip each way), and a mailbox at my physical address, (About a 1.5 mile trip each way!).
    Most of my mail does come to the P.O. Box, but Fed-Ex and UPS WILL deliver to my mailbox address, since they won’t deliver to a P.O. Box address.
    Of course, when the USPS was created they had NO competition, but with the advent of private package delivery services, e-mail, and the like, they have to figure out a way to cut expenses, and remain competitive, just like ANY other business should.
    If the USPS could eliminate the “Bulk Mail” rate, which forces them to deliver huge amounts of “Junk Mail” at cheap rates, they would be able to streamline their services, as a lot of advertisers would stop sending out all that crap that ends up in the garbage, and in landfills, which would help to cut expenses.(Not to mention saving a heck of a lot of trees…)
    Just a thought to consider…

    In the U.K. Royalmail has “DirectMail”, one of their products. Which delivers junkmail. One has to ask to opt out receiving it else you get it.
    When I did, I had the regular postman beg me not to do it since it was providing Royalmail important revenue. I insisted I didn’t want any junkmail. Whenever my regular postie is off, I always get the bloody things.

    I still get bills in the mail as well as tons of junk mail.

    I know let us turn it into a green movement. Home delivery 3 days a week will cut the demon CO2 by half.

    That isn’t the problem, CONgress is the problem, but why waste time posting facts.

    The first postage stamps in the US, circa 1845, cost about $3.40 in todays dollars. If Congress had allowed the USPS to keep up with inflation from that starting point.

    Too many Mon. holidays. Tues, Thurs, Sat. is more practical.

    I bet we can save more money by cutting home delivery down to 3 days a week. Then Obama spent on his magic green job quest.

    I rue the day I first ordered from a catalog ! now I get them daily from companies I never heard of and I have two lifetimes of return address stickers from charities I never contributed to..If it weren’t for junque mail I ’d get very little mail at all, and no exercise walking my dog to the PO every day.

    You bring back some good memories, MasterK,
    As a child visiting my uncle in Louisiana, one of our ‘chores’ while horseback riding was to go to the mail box out by the highway. It was two miles one way, and we had to open and close two fences to get around the grate in the road that kept the cattle in their pastures. The actual post office was a twenty minute drive away.
    Thank you for your comment.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    While I, on the other hand, get tons of bills and only a few pieces of “junk mail”. I wonder what’s wrong.
