FedEx can do a better job, and get packages to more places more reliably. So can UPS - although I try not to use them anymore because they contract some deliveries out to the postal service and cannot guarantee me that the USPS won't put their grubby paws on my packages.
The only difference between Bush and Obama is the group they're wasting our taxpayer money on. It's time to elect responsible legislators.
