The High Price of Postage

Ever wonder why postage keeps increasing year after year, even though many people no longer use the postal service? Well, perhaps this little tidbit will explain why . . .

. . . In another case, USPS spent $13,500 on a dinner at Ruth Chris Steakhouse for employees who were attending a national postal forum in Orlando, Florida. The dinner included more than 200 appetizers and the agency paid for about $3,000 of alcoholic drinks, including more than 40 bottles of wine and top-shelf liquor, the study said. It deemed the dinner as an "excessive cost." - (04/09/08)

The above is only one example of highly excessive government spending. See this article for more info.

If you've now read the linked article, is it any wonder the deficit keeps increasing?

Just my thoughts for the day and one of those WTF!!! moments in life.
