    :cool:

    Cutting costs only goes so far in easing serious budget deficits, so the USPS is looking to junk mail as a rescue remedy to add more revenues.


    The postal service is planning to woo businesses and direct marketers with rebates and discounts to increase advertising mail.

    This is getting kind of silly. My mail box is already full of junk mail. Are they going to install a bigger mail box, or just back a dump truck up and dump it by the yard full?

    Silly.

    Then you willing to pay $0.50 , $0.75 to mail a letter?
    In 2007 213 billion pieces of mail was handled by USPS.
    If price of letter went to $0.75 on the above pieces: $159 billion or $70 billion more!

    When will the post office start being a healthcare provider? I have always wanted junk body parts deposited in my mail box.

    They call it 'snail mail' for a reason.
