The Post Office and the Federal government have been working very diligently for several years to make it nearly impossible for companies like Mail Boxes Etc. to do business, while regularly subsidizing Post Office operations in various ways to keep them competitive....>>Steph, thank you for bringing up MBE. I have friends (they are married) that own two MBE stores, their franchise, and to who I provide PC help. You are absolutely correct about what the USPS is doing to squeeze MBE. My friends and the other MBE owners are hopping mad about being squeezed by the USPS and it is a perfect example that you cite. The USPS is worried about fraud coming from MBE and other Mom and Pop operations but what about the majority of fraud coming from the post office boxes in the post offices? Ever see the Terry Gilliam movie Brazil, that's what our United Socialist States of America is becoming.
