Back when I was a kid, I used to be thoroughly upset when the mail didn't come, or it was all flyer junkmail crap. My parents would always say "just wait until you look forward to those days". I never knew WTF they were talking about until I bought a house.

Don't forget it's more republican fvckery

"Fast forward to December 2006 H.R. 6407; The Postal Accountability and Enhancement Act was passed in the Republican-controlled Senate two days after it was introduced in the Republican-controlled House. It was subsequently signed into law by Republican George W. Bush. One of the provisions in this hastily passed law requires the USPS to prefund ALL of it's retirees health benefits 75 years into the future. That's right. The USPS is supposed to set aside money for the future health benefits for people that haven't even been born yet. The USPS has $11.5 billion due in two payments on August 1 and September 30. On August 1 the Postmaster General will announce that USPS cannot make its payment."

GEICO was founded in 1936 by Leo Goodwin, Sr. and his wife Lillian to provide auto insurance directly to federal government employees and their families.[2] Since 1925, Goodwin had worked for USAA, an insurer which specialized in insuring only military personnel; he decided to start his own company after rising as far as a civilian could go in USAA's military-dominated hierarchy. Based on Goodwin's experience at USAA, GEICO's original business model was predicated on the assumption that federal employees as a group would constitute a less risky and more financially stable pool of insureds, as opposed to the general public. Despite the presence of the word "government" in its name, GEICO has always been a private corporation not affiliated with any government organization.

I have to say I'm shocked to read this... but then again, it was the US under GW. Don't recall even a blip about this being passed.

Let me sum this up with an equation: ih8rice=mailman
Ih8rice:cupidarrow:guns+post office stopping Saturday delivery(no Saturday delivery=less annual pay)=ih8rice going postal
