Rodeodoc: reaperducer: And anyone who says they don't need the Postal Service anymore is someone who either lives in their mother's basement or lives a very simple, boring, predictable life.I think your point is highly debatable, but I'm not motivated to get into that. What no one needs is 6 day a week mail service. The Post Office could probably turn a profit if they went to a 3 day a week schedule. The vast majority of complaints about cutting out Saturday service come from the 85 year olds in East Nutsack, North Dakota who see their Saturday trip to the PO as a social outing. Screw 'em. Tell them their government check will be deposited electronically and don't give them a choice.
TanSau: Fire them all.

The Post Office's job isn't to turn a profit. It is to make sure that we have a reliable method of communicating across the country. The goal of government services shouldn't be to turn a profit.
Tyrone Slothrop: The post office could turn a profit if they weren't forced to pre-fund their pension plan.
