I am not sure that anything illustrates the worthlessness of our government more than the United States Postal Service. The agency is bleeding billions a year, yet our government cannot bring itself to make any kind of decision to shutter post offices or layoff staff. http://news.yahoo.com/postal-keep-rural-post-offices-open-140355580--finance.html
The internet has absolutely killed mail volume. Imagine a business that not only has lost all of it's core business- but has absolutely no prospects moving forward. Closing post offices and laying off staff is an absolute no brainer- yet our Congress cannot bring itself to make a decision.
This is our government and if you can't find a reason to hate this leviathan yet- this is a very good place to start. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/bailout-postal-service-begins-cost-taxpayers-110000-vote-saved-or-gained
