The USPS traces its roots to 1775 during the Second Continental Congress, where Benjamin Franklin was appointed the first postmaster general. The cabinet-level Post Office Department was created in 1792 from Franklin's operation and transformed into its current form in 1971 under the Postal Reorganization Act.The USPS employed 626,764 workers (as of January 2014) and operated 211,654 vehicles in 2013. The USPS is the operator of the largest civilian vehicle fleet in the world. The USPS has exclusive access to letter boxes marked "U.S. Mail" and personal letterboxes in the United States.In the 1960s African Americans were appointed as postmasters of the nation’s three largestPost Offices – New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles. By the end of the 20 the century African Americans comprised 21 percent of all postal employees, serving at all levels of the Postal Service.
Would you like the Postal Service to become your local banker, too? That idea has been floated by its inspector general.
The idea is the struggling service could produce needed revenue. And the network of offices would be needed in underserved areas like core cities and rural areas.
Critics wonder why adding more services would work. And why would a bank want to partner with the Postal Service?
So we asked members of our Email Interactive Group for their take. Some felt it makes more sense to bring back the pony express. Others are more optimistic.

Today on Independent Underground Radio LIVE, we'll discuss the following topics: *Is the United States Post Office REALLY broke? It was recently announced that the USPS will end Saturday mail delivery come August 2013. According to various resources, the Post Office is over $5.6 billion dollars in the red. But does Congress mandate for the USPS to pay years in advance of pension benefits have anything to do with this? We'll discuss. *Also, the Michigan Democratic Party has a horserace going on for who will lead the political group chairperson-ship, Mark Brewer or challenger Lon Johnson. With less than two weeks before the votes are tallied at Cobo Hall in Detroit on 2/23, we'll get all into what will prove to be a fight to lead Michigan Dems for the upcoming 2014 State Races.

Has I get ready to leave Round Rock Texas, I just share a few thoughts about the adventures I had here. We spent Christmas day with my son and his family. Having a grandson with special needs make life a bit more challenging but still does not lessen my love him.
Christmas is so much more special when children are there.
The day after Christmas My son and I took the Boys over to Austin to Harbor Freight and Fry’s to run some errands. Then I took one of my Grandsons over to Piranha records trying to find some Willie Nelson music for a future show. Normally they carrying everything but today was not one of them. Shopping with my Grandson makes me a proud Grandpa
Saturday Morning my wife went to visit some of our favorite haunts The Book Spot, Half Price Books, because both were having sales and of course we had to go
Saturday afternoon my son and took the boys out one a mini-history trip around Round Rock, First we went out to the White –Lime Mc Neil Post office because Richard had never been there
While we there a train passed by which gave Brandon a big thrill, From there we actually found the Round Rock in Rock Texas, and then onto the Round Rock Memorial Park because they have a WWII torpedo one display to honor all the Submarines lost in that war, of course this leads me to this question “Why a Torpedo in Central Texas honoring lost submarines”? Perhaps a research question for another show
We also got a picture of the Christmas Ornament at the Water Tower
Every time we come out to Texas we always have a new set of adventures highlighted by the time we get to spend Richard, Sara, Brandon and Ryan
I would be Remiss if I did not mention this but Sara made homemade Cinnamon rolls that out do anyone or any chains, or independent bakery they are the simply the best

DURING THE PAST 500 YEARS EUROPEANS HAVE SPENT SIGNIFICANT RECOURCES TO PROVE AFRICANS AND THOSE OF AFRICAN DESCENT ARE INFERIOR. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE ACTIONS OF THE EUROPEANS (i.e.enslaving, raping and killing) and their beliefs about themselves (i.e."we are good christians") was so great and the cognitived dissonance so painful, that they were obliged to go to great lengths in order to survive their own horrific behavior. Chattel slavery and genocide of the naive american population were so un-christian he only way they could make their actions acceptable, and so resolve the dissonance, was to relegate thier victims to the level of sub-human.Call in @7:00 cst THURSDAY (347) 637-2518.
