Let me get this straight, the post office is broke, Saturday service is going away, post offices are being shut down, and they are bringing out a line of clothing? Whoever thought of that needs to have his stamp canceled. There is no F*cking way anyone is gonna wanna were postal pants or shirts or whatever they design…Dumb beyond words….

The idea that came in second place: a scheme to bring New York soda cans to Michigan for the 10-cent deposits.

They already do this in California. Truckloads of cans and bottles come in from Nevada and cash in on the California deposits. No doubt some company owned by a good Democrat.

They arrested those people, down in Vegas. I think it was over a year ago. They had semis and warehouses and everything. Funnier than hell, like it was straight out of Seinfeld. When they were arrested they were like, “You mean this is illegal?” Based on articles I read, they can’t do it anymore. If you live in a deposit state you know that returns are handled by machines now, and the machines read the bar codes and reject bottles and cans from states that don’t have a deposit.

Well, one Democlod senator had the idea of “saving” the USPS by having it buy a bunch of brand-new all electric vehicles to replace its entire fleet. Somebody must’ve realized what a stupid idea it was because the video came down within a day or so. That idea deserves dishonorable mention.

FTA “No word as to whether you can order the USPS clothes by mail, but my suggestion is to have it delivered UPS if you can.”

Two things come to mind here, first being how much moolah will this assnine project cost? Second, is our American government going to sell clothes made in China? Just asking.

1) Way more than it will bring in. The personnel costs alone will be triple whatever revenue they produce. However, due to managerial and bureaucratic inefficiencies (redundant?) the scheme will continue forever, consistently operating at a loss.
2) I am thinking Bangladesh. It is actually has much more horrifying working conditions, especially for little children.

You mean these clothes are for the public to buy? Bwahahahaha. Whoinell would wear this crap. Someone might think you work for USPS and come up and start bitching about how lousy your service is. I hope they dont stock up too much because whatever they order will be for sale in the dollar store at 10 for $1.00 within six months.
Is there anyone in government decision making that is not a complete idiot???
