Yeah, because we all know that over 8M of the unemployed didn't lose their jobs under the Bush Admin.
It's Obama's fault. Sure it is old man.
Statist does work. The post office doesn't.
It should be shut down like so many other outdated and redundant government institutions.
<How about melding the post office with the DMV? Then they can take turns being a holes and actually have enough work to look busy?>
What a pleasant place that would be ;o) I went to a DMV in Scottsdale about 10 years ago. It was a modern facility with very nice people working there and no line. Slightly different from Manhattan, or even Palatine.
One of the best reasons to live in Arizona is you only have to get your licence once and only a second time when you turn 65.

Yeah I always get a kick out of showing friends and family my license with an expiration date of 2047.
Pretty sweet eh?
The TSA guys give me an extra look over as my picture is a ten years younger version of me.
Although I think the USPS needs to go the way of the Dodo bird, in their defense, for some reason Congress requires them to make rather large down payments on pension and healthcare obligations years in advance. I believe the USPS is the only organization in the Federal ranks that holds this pleasant honor. At least it might buy them some time, but I'm afraid that needed to be done about 5 years ago. Now, it would be like putting a band-aid on a gunshot wound.
On the other hand, how much has the USPS lost in the last 5 years? Isn't it like 20 billion now? I think we could have connected every rural area in the US to the .com era for that amount. More government waste of precious resources.
