OK, so the big shots at USPS want to keep their raises and make the little guys pay for the inefficiencies of their quasi agency... We know they want a raise and have proposed raising the price of a stamp... I don't think they are worth it. PERIOD. Now dig this.. Go into any large chain store where you find USPS mailing/shipping supplies. Look at the lables and see where the products are made.. The products are all made in Canada. Not ONE of the items were manufactured in the US.. NOT ONE.. The cardboard tubes, boxes, and platic adhesive tape are all made in Canada. Sure, I know about Nafta and the rest of those scams... BUT I ALSO KNOW that a cardboard box company in Missouri???? (or some US state) is closing it's doors and laying off people because of the business climate in the us. I understand that the company has been in business for a couple of hundred years or so.. We import more cardboard then we produce here.. Just go to WalMart and look at the boxes that reach the moon sitting on all of those pallets. See how many boxes are marked CHINA on them.. Better yet, it would be easier just to count those marked Made in the USA. Screw the US Post Master General. Your fat ass should be FIRED!!!!
