1. Write to your congresspeople and tell them to UNDO the unfair forcing the USPS

to prefund 75 years worth of med $$ in 10 years. It's manufactured by congress (GOP, natch) to make the USPS go under so we can pay $2 to mail a letter that will get there in a week, with all $$ going to their buddies in private industry. Shameful.

2. Congress has to repeal that 2004 law.

Otherwise privatized companies will charge excessive fees for mail delivery, and it won't even be available everywhere.

3. Dianne Feinstein's husband on the gravy train.

Wasn't previously aware of the connection between CBRE and Feinstein.

Fred Smith, CEO of FedEx, was a friend and fraternity brother of George W. Bush. Both were members of Skull and Bones. Bush signed the Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act of 2006 that established the health care pre-funding mandate that triggered the current postal fiscal crisis...that's what friends are for.

Thanks for posting.
