ajole gop Issa wants you to line up at a "cluster" box
"Rep. Darrell Issa, the California Republican leading the House effort to save the postal service, wants more. He has made doing away with doorstep delivery a key part of his bill, which would require everyone to get mail at a curbside box or from a cluster box."
And what's wrong with that???
We have Cluster boxes here since the 1980s and every new development has cluster boxes - only in the country they have curb side boxes if they have a mail route!
I like our cluster box system because the boxes are locked by the mail delivery carrier and a key is required to get into the mail box from the rear. (No mail theft here!)
However if a person is disabled, the mail will delivered to the landing.
In the country the mail box is located at the closest junction of roads, the mail truck wouldn't make it if the long drive ways aren't plowed/snow removed!
When we are up north, we have to go to the grocery store in town, where a postal person works to pick up/send mail - what's wrong with that, this has been the case since the "olden days" in the Northern states! A US flag indicates that the store - trading post has a post office in it.
In Minneapolis the mail get delivered into mail slot in the house, but some of the new mailings are too large (like Insurance packages) and don't fit into the box, then a curbside box is required and it better be locked and set in concrete - you know what I mean - so the #$%$ can't get in!
Pompous, lazy #$%$ Democrats, can't walk to the mailbox to get your welfare check and food stamps???
