USPS Going Broke

Why is that? Maybe it’s because you can send a message to ANYBODY for—NOTHING-- by e-mail versus almost half a dollar to send a message by “snail mail; PLUS, that e-mail message gets there almost instantaneously while a letter takes maybe three days. If it gets there at all. Now they’re raising prices (again) on their “backbone.” Business mail like publishers sending you magazines. Only the incompetents in government will do something that stupid.

THOMAS JEFFERSON ON WELFARE: "To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it." (Thomas Jefferson) In other words, taking from EARNERS and giving to NONEARNERS is wrong.

VIET NAM A “MISADVENTURE”: That’s what Bill Ayres (an American home-grown terrorist now a retired professor) says. He emphasizes that we “lost” that war, which is the truth. But it was the liberals in our government who lost that war, and are fast losing the war in Iraq. We had the war won when funding was cut off for the war by liberals.

OUTLAW BOMBS: Using the thinking of anti-gun freaks in the U. S., they need to outlaw bombs in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other places where terrorists regularly use them. Will that stop them from blowing up innocent people? Not a chance; no more than laws against carrying guns will stop criminals, who break the law for a living, will cause criminals to obey a law says they cannot be armed. Like the terrorists, they will just go right on breaking the law.

AIRPORT CONTROLLERS SLEEPING ON THE JOB: This has become the “cause celebre” today, as we hear about more and more flight controllers sleeping on the job. Why are we suddenly hearing about this? Apparently it has been going on a long time, and the government knew it. But nobody talked about it until now. They even want to ALLOW controllers to sleep on the job (during breaks) up to 2-1/2 hours on the night shift if there is someone there to cover. Apparently somebody wanted a “shakeup” in the FAA, and they got it. Boy, I wish I had gotten a 2-1/2 hour break!

CAN’T TELL US WHAT SHE HATES: Wisconsin Democrat state senator Lena Taylor really hates those “tax breaks for the rich” (a common Democrat “talking point”) but, when asked to detail the ones she didn’t like, she couldn’t do it. This is common for liberals when asked to provide details. They just start calling the questioner names and attempt to “move on.”
