Speak Into the Microphone

You can't make up a better quote than this on the US Postal Service... when they aren't chastising Jonathan at Chicago Boyz for trying to take a photo:

“Hey, hey! Ho, ho! Darrell Issa has got to go!” workers chanted along 14th Street NW outside the offices of Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.).

Fran Owens, an eastern region representative with the American Postal Workers Union, called Issa’s measure “a union-busting bill.” She blamed USPS’s financial problems on a 2006 postal reform package that forced the Postal Service to pay about $5.5 billion annually to fund future retiree benefits.

First of all... really - that Hey ho crap is from the 70's. Can't a bunch of people with time on their hands come up with something better?

And as far as being driven into bankruptcy BY THE MERE THOUGHT THAT THEY SHOULD PAY SOMETHING FOR THEIR BENEFITS is another hilarious thought. Speak into the microphone - if you actually took on the burden for all your benefits the postal service would have been bankrupt decades ago.
