The United States Postal Service, in conjunction with food banks all over the country, held its annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive Saturday.
Let’s see here, the USPS is a tax-funded government monopoly that doesn’t pay for itself. So if you are a postal carrier, you must participate in the mailbox food pickups whether or not you want to. That extra work time represents an expense for a business that is already NOT profitable.
Is collecting food for the needy a good idea? Sure, and so are hundreds of other good causes. But wait a minute!
I get to see part of my tax-burden go to a poorly run business that would fail without subsidies, and part of that cost goes to charities that I didn’t volunteer to support.
We donate regularly through our church for local needs. I don’t want the federal government (and the National Association of Letter Carriers - AFL/CIO union) making decisions for me! Time to write Congress again: https://votervoice.net/JBS/Address.
