Of course efficiencies are going to differ from place to place....but your post office is just as broke as mine, I promise.



We spend more money per student than any other country and yet their educational successes pale in comparison to places like China. Nothing efficient about that.



You may not take help from the government but you encourage our government to rob Peter to pay Paul...which is FAR worse.

Isn't that crazy, though? We spend more per student on education than any other country and our public education system is a p***e o* s**t?



Just proves that throwing more money at the problem is not fixing anything.

No not at all. I'm just disputing the idea that government runs absolutely everything in the ground. It's not the case where I live, nor where I'm from and everywhere I've lived in between.



I'm quite up to speed on things in the rest of the country, I just happen to support Obama and obamacare so you are instantly turned off to my opinion. I genuinely believe obamacare will help. And I'm sorry if your DMV wait time is so long, or you have to spend more time in line at the post office. I feel your plight, I really do.

Always quick to put words in my mouth and conform me into the mindless democrat that acts like sheep so you can better argue with me.

And I said around Carmel.



So because of where I live, I'm incapable of an opinion? That's new.

It's not just the wait times. It's the fact that places like the post office are completely broke. They can't afford to run on their own so they count on the government (taxpayer) subsidizing their inefficiencies. If they were a private business, they'd be gone by now.



I showed up to the DMV 15 minutes before they opened because I didn't want to wait with 3 small children. As I drove up, I noticed there was already a line of 10-15 people waiting outside the door. WTF is up with that?

Nothing wrong with Oklahoma. We can open carry now and next year they are eliminating the state income tax because we have a budget surplus. Oh, and the state is taking the fed to court over Obamacare.

As long as the libs don't flock to Oklahoma and Texas. Though, since Glenn Beck told all of his listeners on Wednesday to move to Texas, I don't think any libs will want to move there!

Even if you think it's pretty smooth, it's BANKRUPT.

Yeah but it's necessary for the current times. Things need to be changed but there's very little that can be done to overhaul the entire post office. It needs to be phased out, but hands are tied because too many people still depend on it.



Are you suggesting the governennt just do away with the post office then?

Do you believe throwing money at things fixes them?

Privatize it. The private sector always runs more efficiently and more coherently than the fed.

I believe it needs to be phased out, but right now it needs to remain operational. So yes putting money into it until another solution comes along is the solution.



I'll ask again, you believe it should just be done away with?

Yes, I do.



Private sector can do it just fine. UPS and FedEx are doing great while the post office struggles.
