Just subtract 5.5 billion from those net loss numbers and the real picture becomes clear.
    By prefunding the retirement benefits..you mean they are paying each year for the retirees benefits and paying as they go hour by hour for their current employees future benefits...are they not still short on funds to cover operating costs?

    I guess I'm not clear on how it's appropriate to disregard the unfunded liabilities?

    So who also uses USPS? The large bullion dealers. If the thieves ever recognize the return address, all stackers/preppers are screwed.

    Great question! The USPS was mandated by a Congressional Act to prefund 50 years of future pensions. 5.5 billion is an line item, an operational expense of sorts. Itís an absurd requirement and it really does make the USPS look horrible financially speaking. Insiders get to see the data with the prefund backed out lol.

    Good point! Wouldn’t surprise me if methodical thieves monitor this site, after all, we find some valuable stuff that probably hits the open market and eventually the mail channels.

    Whereabouts do you live in MD. You have me curious.

    We recently had a whole series of new mail boxes put in with large package boxes. I checked the mail one day and noticed the keys in the package boxes have two or three keys to each! Someone gets a package, the mail man placed the package key in the person's box, that person took the key and got their package. Of course the second or third keys were the mail mans spare keys! I reported this and the main post office was really ticked that the route delivery person was that lazy or stupid. I said so anyone can take off a spare and gain access to the box at any time. Out here in Montana the positions are handed down to family members, so there is no reason to use common sense.

    I cannot say I have a problem with the post office. I live right behind it in Yarnell. Missy or Dave comes out onto the back porch and yells Terry, you got a package! No problem. ╦╦C
    If the universe is only 14 billions years old...... how can it be 93 billion light years across? Mmm?
