The campaign's still on with a guy who initiated it through signon.org.
Here are links to the various petitions, to the Facebook campaign page and an address that says (and I believe them; they've done a lot of research and work on this campaign) that if you send a letter or p-card to them at given address, they'll get it to the Powers-that-be. I've a soft spot for the USPS (aside from my relationship to Ben Franklin, 1st cousin 9 times removed, Cousin Ben being the First Postmaster General).
This is the 'friends' letter that came with it, were I to share it on Facebook (which I don't have and won't get; you are the closest I get to social media):
The financial crisis in the postal service is a manufactured crisis by Congress and the media. The postal service is not broken and does not need fixed. It simply needs tweaked of laws that place restrictions on it from competing.
That's why I signed a petition to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:
"The US Postal Service is the only business or government agency required to prefund their retiree benefits 75 years in advance. At a cost of $5.5 billion dollars a year for a 10 year period. This needs to stop immediately. It is bankrupting a 235 year old quasi government/quasi business. The financial problems of the postal service are "smoke and mirrors" created by Congress in the lame duck session during 2006 by a voice vote."
An interesting take which I've not seen elsewhere. If it's true...ay yi yi. Thanks, Jude
