    We have been seeing postage rates go up about every 8-14 months for the last few years. The post office is also talking about going to 5 days a week instead of 6 to save money. If people really want to save the planet, especially the trees, and reduce what ends up in landfills etc and save a bunch of money in tax dollars and in the corperate world, do away with the USPS. 90% of what goes through the PO is BBM; bulk business mail-junk mail directed to businesses from businesses. A large % of that never reaches the people it's addressed to for any number of reasons and what does get to the addressee gets tossed without looking at it....

    Do away with the post office, and bet your bottom dollar that you start paying for emails
