I’m still confused. Our government can tell our farmers who are struggling to make a living that they can charge only so much for a gallon of milk and it can tell the post office that it can’t raise the price of a stamp and also can’t cut any deliveries on Saturdays to try to make ends meet.

But the oil companies that are making billions in profits can and do charge whatever they want for gas and oil, and, if I’m not mistaken, we still subsidize these big companies.

Stop and think about what will happen if and when we lose the postal service, and our politicians (who have stocks in the oil companies but not in the postal service or milk business) are trying their darnedest to do this.
