The Most Annoying Ad on TV

Why is USPS advertising?
Am I the only one that sees this as grossly wrong?

A GOVERNMENT program, that has countless issues, is losing loads of money is using tax payer dollars to advertise itself.

Here's a thought- if no one is using a government service- why not get rid of it?

The USPS gets subsidized by our taxes, FedEx and UPS don't.
GM got subsidized by our taxes, Ford didn't. (Did you SEE last months earnings?)

Ladies and Gentlemen, there is a pattern here. The government should never enter the free market with services subsidized with the taxes of their competitors.

The USPS commercials really aren't that bad- but knowing that my taxes help payed for it annoys the hell out of me.
