Postal texan, I am a rural carrier too and am interested in rural topics, sorry if I caused you any problems, its just something about that pabak guy that irks me, he threatens and curses and rubs people the wrong way. I am rr33, but many others joined in all of which he thinks is me. I wont post here anymore, but I do love your website and have used it many times especially during mail counts. Have a great day. Thank you.

A little too late troll. Your "reputation" is garbage.... just as it should be.

troll... Never asked for your "respect" nor do I desire it.

I fail to see what was uncivil in my message to the unrealdeal (and we have "battled" hundreds of times in the last decade). I quote, "You're of course entitled to your own opinion, unrealdeal," does than sound uncivil to you?

ANYONE who supports Carpal's bill or Potter is one clueless individual. I have a bridge, some swampland and a couple of statues to sell you.

As for "name calling" you need look no further than YOUR own posts. You think you're free to destroy message boards with bullshit and tell people to F%$K off but far be it from someone to talk to you at YOUR own level.

Keep your "respect" for your pedophile club.

P.S. RR33 /43042... I wish this asstroll would self destruct ALL of his worthless posts.

unreal deal.. and that is why we will never agree on much of anything. The USPS "lost" what last year? 6 or 7-billion? But while clerks were losing their jobs, city carriers were adding more work but not time to their 8 hour days and rural carriers were losing thousands of dollars in salaries, what about Potter? $1.8 million ADDED to his salary and retirement account, that's what.
Potter has managed to increase postage more in his 10 years at the helm than the USPS had done in its 200+ year history. He has made a mockery of the concept of "customer service" and just about every single "major" hire he has made to his staff has ended up being forced out or exposed as the scumbags they are.

It wouldn't be so bad if his moves were AIMED at sustaining the USPS but this buffoon wouldn't know what to do with an extra dollar outside of stuffing in his own damn wallet. The simple fact is if Potter was the CEO of the USPS (like he wants to be compensated as) he would have been fired years ago. He is the Matt Millen of the postal league.

Fortunately this bill's chances of passing are about as good as a snowball in hell.

You're of course entitled to your own opinion, unrealdeal, but I sure am glad you don't have any pull in making decisions. Stop drinking the Jim Jones grape kool aid and get on the Dump Potter bandwagon.

Pink skip one stupidvisor at every deliver office in the U.S.and not only would they not be missed, but the USPS would have to find ways to spend money just to get to break even.

From post 43038 pabak (with a blue star), the contents of the Postal Operations Sustainment and Transformation Act of 2010 should have been passed years ago. Every part of it will sustain the post office in a much better financial standing.
I'm all for it.

Here's some more "cut and paste" dildo... I know how much you love it.

Senator Carper's Bill: D.O.A
Senator Tom Carper introduced a new postal bill, the ‘‘Postal Operations Sustainment and Transformation Act of 2010’’ (The POST Act of 2010), to modify the Postal Service's business model on September 23rd. The bill includes all of the legislative changes that the Postal Service requested as part of its action plan last March. The strong support that Postmaster General Potter shows for the bill in the press release from Senator Carper's office confirms that this bill can be thought of as the "Postal Service's bill."

Unfortunately for Postmaster General Potter, Senator Carper's bill is effectively dead on arrival. Why?

    * The bill was introduced at the end of the legislative session. With both the House and Senate going on recess to campaign, the consideration of the bill will not even begin until after the election. The bill still will require mark-up in the Senate and then mark-up and passage by the House. The clock will most likely run out before passage in one house of Congress, let alone two.
    * The expected Republican gains in the Senate and House will make any lame-duck session particularly contentious and further reduce the chance that any major legislation will pass. If Republicans gain control of one or more houses in Congress, it is in their interest to make the lame duck session as ineffective as possible forcing legislative actions to be put on hold until the next Congress.
    * It is easier to stop legislation than to pass it. The Post Act has a number of provisions that immediately generate opposition.
          o Provisions in the legislation to fix the retiree benefit issues easily can be opposed in a Tweet describing the fix as a bailout of a failed federal agency. This is exactly what Congressman Darrell Issa said in his op-ed in the Washington Times. Given opposition to bailouts of private sector firms, Congress is unlikely to pass any legislation labeled as a "bailout" of a government entity in the press, in the blogosphere, on cable TV news or on talk radio.
          o Provisions to allow the Postal Service to eliminate Saturday delivery will receive opposition from a majority of Congress.
          o Provisions to allow the Postal Service greater flexibility to cut rural post offices will face opposition from primarily the Republican and Blue Dog Democratic members of Congress that represent most of rural America. While these members are opposed to bailouts, they are also opposed to cutting services to their constituents.
          o Provisions allowing the Postal Service to expand into new services that use its physical, technological and human capital that are in the public interest will receive opposition from companies that fear competition from the Postal Service.
          o Provisions calling for a change in labor arbitration decision criteria will have opposition from Postal unions and their supporters in Congress.

Finally, if this bill does not pass this Congress, it is even less likely to pass in its current form in the next. Republicans will control the agenda on modifying the Postal Service's business model in the next Congress. Representative Issa, who has already called the Carper bill a bailout, appears likely to chair the committee writing Postal reform legislation in the House. His bill will likely require significant changes in the business model beyond what the Postal Service has proposed before accepting the need to fix the retiree benefits issues, let alone include any of the other proposals that Senator Carper has included in the Post Act. When that occurs, all that may remain of the Post Act will be the legislation's title.
