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.

Kelowna, British Columbia -- There is a prevalent misconception that all people with sexual addictions are able to control their maladaptive sexual behavior. There may also be a connection, not often considered by the public, between sexual addiction and sexual abuse both in cases of abusers as well as the sexually abused.
“Working through sexual abuse can be a form of grieving,” explains therapist Barb Gladue. “It’s the death of the dream of who you were going to be because I believe that sexual abuse changes your spirit.”
As a child, therapist Barb Gladue was herself the victim of both physical and sexual abuse; and throughout her journey of 30 years as a therapist she has sought to learn not only how to support those who have been oppressed by sexual abuse but also how to begin to change the cycle of sexual addiction within sexual addicts themselves.
“Being abused can be a powerless position, but addicts can feel completely powerless also. It’s the other side of the pendulum,” says Gladue. “I wanted to know how and why the addiction started. I believe that sexual addicts are not born, they’re made. So my goal was to find out how they got there, how they were made and where we can go from there.”
Today, Gladue is the founder of B Proactive Counselling, which specializes in providing client-centered counselling to individuals on both sides of the sexual abuse equation. Gladue offers a personalized treatment plan that focuses on healing and creating a more successful future.
“Many of these addicts have wept in my office and shook their heads in shame and total disbelief that they were even capable of this behavior,” says Gladue. “If you want to be free and go down a new path, we set up a level of accountability and empower you to understand why it happened and find healing.”
Is the controversial American school reform known as #Commoncore simply the latest iteration in corporate America's design to make Americans more ignorant and compliant?
What is the real function of our public education system and how has it been co-opted by large corporations and politicians to produce the kinds of people they need in order to maintain the status quo? Are parents losing the battle to educate their own children?
Charlotte Thomson Iserbyt is an educational insider, a policy influencer who served as Senior Policy Advisor in the Office of Educational Research and Improvement (OERI), U.S. Department of Education, during the first term of U.S. President Ronald Reagan.
Iserbyt is best known for writing the book #The Deliberate Dumbing Down of America an eye-opening revelation of the changes gradually brought into the American public education system designed to eliminate parental, religious, and other influences, and mold the child into amember of the proletariat in preparation for the socialist-collectivist world of the future.
Iserbyt maintains that all so-called school reforms originate from a master plan formulared by Andrew Carnegie's Foundation for the Advancement of Education and Rockefeller's General Education Board.
According to Iserbyt, Common Core is simply the latest version of these corporate driven initiatives aimed at influencing and shaping society rather than encouraging intellectual curiousity, creativity, and true learning.
Iserbyt's findings, while they remain controversial, still provide lots of food for thought as we examine the role of public education in American society and how best to educate our children.
I will tell the story of my work with several individuals suffering from so-called Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD. I will widen the story's focus to include the role that war has in making human life meaningful and how the way we currently deal with returning soldiers helps insure that while we pray for peace we insure the reality of the next war. I will reprise how the myth of mental illness and the role played by the mental health industry based on Psychiatry silences the voices of those veterans that are filled with fear, rage, shame, guilt and profound feelings of betrayal at the hands of the politicians that sent them to war. I will suggest that when those of us fail in our role as citizens to speak out against those who glorify war we not only insure the reality of the next war but we abandon those soldiers seeking to create new meaningful, creative and loving lives. I will argue again that anyone can be a psycho"therapist" for themselves and others if they learn how to say and to listen to that which society says is unsayable.
