    because the pc providers are helping to increase postage volumes and revenue for the post office. the little bit the post office pays is miniscule compared to the extra revenue they would not normally get. period.

    Why wouldn’t senior postal official Jim Cochrane NOTspeak to the WP when he had no issue speaking & being quoted on STMP’s blog?

    Does he have something to hide?

     

    I went back to yesterday’s WP STMP article to see if there were any public comments added.

    There were 80!!!   

    One in particularly one caught my eye…

     

    “JavaJunkie88

    1 day ago

    Only two questions
    To whom did those who are getting "special discounts" give kickbacks to?
    AND
    How much did those executives who gave the sweetheart deals at USPS receive in bribes?”

     

     

    I then reread yesterday’s article.

    These sentences from yesterday’s article jumped out at me…

    “After declining The Post’s requests for interviews, a senior Postal Service official, Chief Customer and Marketing Sales Officer Jim Cochrane, discussed negotiated service agreements and other discount programs Tuesday with a Stamps.com marketing executive for a blog post on the company’s website.”

     

    I’m no Sam Spade, but Jim Cochrane would be the first person I would pose JavaJunkie88’s core questions to.

    Just follow the money!

    Stamps.com article in Washington Post this morning

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/as-us-postal-service-struggles-stampscom-fortunes-rise/2017/08/04/27b1ffcc-763c-11e7-8f39-eeb7d3a2d304_story.html?utm_term=.6b62a3d69a92

    In the comments section lissack nade a very cogent post:

    Stamps.com is adept at screwing over the American taxpayer and the USPS is helping them do it. They argue they are boosting "volume" (and maybe they are) but at a cost of lost revenue -- and guess who covers the losses -- we the taxpayers.
    Notice that the Post Office refused to comment to the Post but was happy to comment to the blog of none other thanStamps.com.
    There is smoke in the air and a foul odor. Usually that suggests both a cover up and a stink. When I tried to FOIA the contracts between Stamps.com and the USPS I was denied -- business secrets they claimed -- yup most folks who have dirty laundry to cover up want it to remain a secret.

    As U.S. Postal Service struggles, Stamps.com fortunes rise
    The Postal Service isn’t the only one making money when a mail carrier brings a new pair of shoes or a school backpack to your door.

    Boy oh boy, the shorts have to be crying the blues today. Lol, I love watching people who bet against growth lose their houses. I never short stocks out of principle. It's a personal choice because I consider short sellers the low lives of Wall Street. Today some of them paid dearly for their negativity.

    The Postal Service lost over 6 billion dollars of our tax payer money in 2016 alone. If there is some magic way that private companies are able to deliver as good a service for less money, then why can't the public sector adopt those practices? I guess as long as there is a vested interest in siphoning public funds to private enterprise contracting out will continue. Be careful people. Sooner or later Trump will drain the Swamp.

    jimmy, you should know when we talk about usps, we are pretty much talking about the federal government, a lot of bureaucracies!!! earning money is never a real objective for them. acutally they feel very proud of losing money...
    so even they know there's a loophole, but who cares? the loophole will always be there.
