Senators Seek to Protect 15,000 Postal Jobs

Several US Senators are trying to pass legislation to prevent the United States Postal Service from streamlining their operations by closing 80 facilities. This will also eliminate about 15,000 jobs. The USPS is smart enough to know that they are too bloated to be effective. They have people, equipment, and facilities that are not being productive.

The USPS is trying to run itself like a real business, but Elected Empty suits in the form of Democratic Senators want to prevent them from doing the right thing. Elected empty suits see their role as a body of brilliant people who pass legislation to coerce innocent tax payers to do what they think is the best thing.

One way elected empty suits get to be elected empty suits is; they have no marketable skills, they are easily led by people who shovel money in their direction and they aren’t very smart. If they were smart they would understand how stupid the legislation is that their puppet masters and string pullers tell them to pass.

The USPS is trying to right size themselves. That means they are too big and bloated and they must get themselves to a size that is best for their business. Technology has been the enemy of the Postal Service. Email, faxes, computers and competitors like Fed Ex and UPS have taken a significant portion of the business away from the Post Office.

Too many people equipment and facilities cost the company much more money than they need to operate efficiently. With their expenses so high they would reduce their profits, but the Post Office is unique they are not like real businesses, they can turn to the US Government to pick up the slack and make good on their losses.

Kudos to the Post Office senior management; they are trying to do the right thing but elected empty suits think they know better. They think that since the economy is tight right now and the middle class is being squeezed we must legislate the Post Office into making the wrong decisions and costing tax payers a lot of money.

Elected Empty suits think that the must coerce the Post Office from doing the right thing by force of law. Their plan is to artificially maintain do nothing jobs that will be ultimately paid for by the tax payers just to please the union masters of the elected empty suits.
If we look close enough I’m sure that the unions associated with the Post office have pulled the strings necessary to cause these particular empty suits to attempt this legislation.

Lessons Learned:

Yes the legislator that you think is stupid really is that stupid.

The election process saps common sense and intelligence from the elected empty suits.

When an elected empty suit finds a problem they will offer not just the wrong solution but a solution that is so wrong it will cost tax payers multiple millions of tax dollars to und the solution.

Unions will always do their best through the collection of union dues to lower the standard of any organization to the lowest common denominator. Unions can’t afford to lose any dues paying members, because they are hard to get. When employees in the public or private sectors have a choice they will NOT choose paying dues to a union.

Elected empty suits and unions cost the tax payers too much money and the elected empty suits are always too willing to prostitute themselves to a union flush with union dues paid for by union members who must pay dues to that union in order to keep their jobs.
