I Caught A Little Bit Of CNN This Morning - It Looks LIke They Are Supporting Privatization Of USPS.

It was on the Carol Costello portion this morning. She had a women on the show that was talking trash about USPS and supported the USPS going private.

Not one mention about how Congress screwed USPS. They are slanting the story against USPS and making it look like they are totally mismanaged.

2. Yes, the silence from many, including our own, is deafening.

Tells me everything I need to know plus some.

I'd love to see exactly who will profit the most. I also wonder what will happen to all that pre-paid retirement money?

7. Good point about the retirement money, I hadn't thought about that

I wouldn't be surprised if it's handed over to UPS

3. Technically speaking

The USPS is already a private entity...it gets no money from the federal government.
