I Don't Know Whether To Laugh Or Cry

I assume you heard that the US Postal Service has decided to eliminate Saturday Mail delivery to "SAVE MONEY" (taxpayer money) .  And that they need to "SAVE MONEY" (taxpayer money) because they lost  $16 billion (taxpayer dollars) during fiscal year 2012.  I won't go into all the reasons the Postal Service is losing billions of taxpayers dollars, but it's quite obvious they're not selling enough stamps.

But wait, if they can't sell enough stamps, why not sell $16 billion worth of "clothes".  Yup, you heard me. Postal Service corporate licensing manager Steven Mills said in a news release that he has signed a license agreement with Wahconah Group, a Cleveland-based apparel company, that will "put the Postal Service on the cutting edge of functional fashion".  He also said, "the main focus will be to produce Rain Heat & Snow apparel and accessories using technology to create 'smart apparel' - also known as wearable electronics."

I'm guessing the "wearable electronics" may look similar to this...

And, if the words "Postal Service" and "clothing accessories" remind you of something you've heard before, perhaps this video from "Michelle Malkin" will refresh your memory.  Enjoy...
