Comment of the Day: The Case for Letting the Postal Service DieS

Today we learned that the USPS, you know where the mail comes from, will soon be broke. Yikes! Should we help it? Save it? Rescue it? No, says one commenter.

From Nesbiteme:

Look, if we bailout the Post Office where will the bailouts stop? Next thing you know we'll be bailing out financial firms, auto companies, reckless insurance companies, based in the United States, that write billions of dollars of contracts, through London subsidiaries using their AAA ratings, that they could never to pay out on. We have to draw the line, in the sand, somewhere and we might as well start with that Post Office. What developed country still has a postal system anyway?
