    I went to the Post Office yesterday and after waiting in line for more than 15 minutes I finally got to the one clerk on duty. There used to be 2 or 3.
    Service is getting worse and worse and smaller offices are closing.

    Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution empowers Congress to "To establish Post Offices and post Roads;" but they have turned the USPO dept over to a (failing) "private" concern.

    Article 1 lists the (relatively short) powers of the Congress but our congress which has/is poking its nose into hundreds of places not enumerated has stopped in its duty "To establish Post Offices and post Roads;" "To declare War" (we've had 6-7 since the last 'Declaration') and "To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof"

    What the hay they recently (in the midst of our latest "crisis") held hearings on head injuries in football and before that was looking into the college playoff issue. Sheesh

    The biggest problem we have in this Country is the congress.
