  1. The Postal Service is built like an organized crime family. Layers of made men, keeps from getting to the heart of the top bitch.
    It’s a pretty foarmadable group of bandits tha escalate way into the legislative branches of the government.
    The postal service doesn’t have to continue losing money. The postal service can change whenever it wants to. Privitization to operate like FedEx and UPS isn’t unattainable. It can be done very easily, however the bitches don’t want that. Privitization would cripple the access to all that free revenue that is so available to the top bitches.
    Another thing is where in the hell are they going to place 800,000 illiterate postal employees after going private?
    if you think the economy is bad now, let them close the postal Service down and we’ll see going postal in it’s true form.

  2. S.O.S .. hope they have enough life boats for at least the craft. As Ms. Norton sez, “if you knew the company was having problems, why didn’t you react sooner”….duh .. cause we are waiting for Congress to act so we can move on. Too much politics, no matter what the PO tries to do, we are powerless when we are waiting for Congressional approval. If the PO would get rid of CSRS eligible employees by giving them an incentive, then go to 5 day delivery, there will be less PTF’s TE’s to lay off. You want to keep a younger workforce whom are paid less, than to keep the higher paid employees. This also pertains to management, keep it simple, to many reports, too many micromanagers .. too much riff raff.

  3. Thanks For The Memories,the post office is gonna go the way of the wagon wheel & the horse & buggy whip,times change!

  4. What do they have to hide. These meetings should be open. What say you congress!!!!!!!!!!!11

  5. They know the usps is sinking that’s why they’re wearing lifejackets first before informing the rest of the crew of what’s happening hahahahhahahahahahahaha.

  6. The truth of the matter is quite simple: USPS management has dug themselves and the entire organization into a hole so large that they cannot get themselves much less the craft employees out. Their outright refusal to decrease/streamline management ranks tells the absolute truth. USPS management is downsizing craft, closing offices, combining processing, realigning networks:but not decreasing the total number of management by any significant number.
    Managers are being reassigned to other positions-positions which they may but probably are not qualified to fill. Reminds me of an episode of MASH where a General with background in logistics requested a transfer to combat so his retirement would increase due to combat pay. After many soldiers were killed and/or injured due to his poor leadership skills, the MASH team had him reassigned back to logistics. How can an individual with experience in sales have high skills, knowledge, and the ability to be a competent manager in processing. RIF’s have to start in high levels of management. Does the USPS need so many VP’s and Area/District Managers.

  7. Well lets see, it’s not what they have to hide, it’s what they don’t want the public to hear, which is a lot of BullS**T, because they’re the ones that got the USPS in this mess, remember the Postal Reform that was signed into law in 2006, it was supposed to help the USPS compete with FedEx and UPS, all it has done, is let management give themselves big raises and bonus’s. If it was done right, the USPS could go into a business and say, we can mail those packages for a flat rate of 6 dollars up to 3 pounds anywhere in the USA, no that was to easy, so this is where the USPS is now. Sinking faster then the TITANIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
