Do It

Save The Post Office

Richard Demato

Is anyone else tired of all the emails, texts, tweets, updates, comments, shares and tags? Remember the good old days where you got a thoughtful hand written note from someone you cared about? Yeah. Me too. So go do that. Write that letter to someone you miss, care about, love, think fondly of, or just dig. Because you can. And then, once you drop it in the mailbox, go ahead and email, text, tweet, post, comment, share and tag this link. Because that's how you'll save the post office.

    No I like typing as my handwriting is crap.

    It is only foreseen that postage system could collapse AFTER JAnuary. I don't blame Obama for not knowing money. Obama was a lawyer, that makes him a good speaker, and able to debate his actions well.
    If Obama doesn't listen to his council and congress we may have the postal system protest. We can't afford that to really happen. You may use the internet to pay your bills and even grocery shop. Many don't.

    I've said this before.... 73% of AMERICA DOES NOT HAVE A COMPUTER. THEY ARE TOO EXPENSIVE(Thank you Microsoft & HP). 85% of America only uses the internet from their phone. YOU CAN'T PAY or fill out everything from a cell phone. It would be an unimaginable problem if postal system broke. For people, for the government.

    The only way I keep in touch with several inmates in California -- the only way many of them hear from their families & loved ones.
