Post ofice just announced a 16 billion dollar deficit this fiscal year.
The government can’t get one of their few Constitutionally authorized functions to work, after 222 years to get it right.
No doubt Uhbama and Jarrett think the Fedex/UPS competition is “unfair”.
Claire, I nominate you for Attorney General Grand High Prosecutor of the Restored Republic. You’ll have fun. I’ll locate lampposts for you.

They’re obviously trying to kill the Post Office’s competition, as if that would save it.
That reminds me, I have to go get an estimate for the damage where a post office van smacked my parked car. Nice driving there, toots!
And twice in the last month they miss-delivered my mail to the wrong address. One of the letters was a time-sensitive notice from the state that I was barely able to retrieve in time.
Gee, I wonder if there’s any people out there who can drive carefully, deliver mail correctly, and are currently looking for a yob?

We will soon be broken down into 3 man cells observing our neighbors and reporting their sins to the thought police.

All kinds of questions here!
So … does that mean the post office opens and inspects every parcel it handles?
Since the postal service has more than once delivered our neighbor’s VERY hard core and disturbingly deviant pornographic subscriptions to our mailbox, and since our under age son sometimes collects the mail, is USPS responsible for distributing smut to a minor?
We have gotten credit card offers intended for other people. We have also accidentally gotten our neighbor’s social security check, another neighbor’s collection notices, and another neighbor’s court summons! I hate redelivering the mail, especially under these awkward circumstances.
My husband’s drivers license was misdelivered to a woman halfway across town. She called us so we could pick it up. To the best of my knowledge, none of our other “sensitive” mail went where it shouldn’t – but how would we ever know? Given the things we have received by mistake, it’s no wonder identity theft crimes are thriving and on the rise. Does the post office accept any liability for damages that could arise from their misdeliveries?
After readin’ y’all’s comments for the 2nd time, I finally had the
appropriate epiphany! Aren’t the same people that are responsible
for the operation & services of the USPS, the same people
that are going to be responsible for the operation & services of
Obamacare! As I think Claire has often said, WASoF!
I’d better start my EOL (end of life) planning.
