No More Mailing Packages to USA Over 1 Pound (453 grams)

It was reported on this site a while back and now here is confirmation: No More Mailing Packages to USA Over 1 Pound

Note to readers: I have just confirmed this news myself with a trip to the Futagotamagawa branch of the Japanese post office. They will no longer accept any packages mailed to the United States that weigh over 453 grams. 
The staff at the post office told me that policy was confused and that the Japanese post office is trying to get clarification. But, until then, the rule stands: "No packages to the USA that weigh a total of over 453 grams (one pound)."
Homeland Security has gone mad in the USA. How much longer will the people tolerate this?

Napolitano Halts Shipment of Packages as Prelude to Civilian 'Shipper' ID Lockdown

We then took a look at Japanese postal web sites to try to find out what's going on and discovered that Janet Napolitano set up new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) shipping restrictions on November 17, 2010 that blocks the shipping of any NON COMMERCIAL parcel into the United States that weighs more than 0.9 pounds (under 16 ounces) without first supplying the Social Security number (or taxpayer ID number) of the RECEPIENT of the package.
