    Who but the Feds can set up and maintain the weather monitoring stations around the country? Private enterprise would open and close, or not maintain those stations based on the same logic that is assaulting the Government programs now.

    The only other organization with the longevity and stability would be the Catholic Church, not a bad option. They can assign their problematic priests to desolate monitoring sites.

    I firmly believe that NOOA implicitly, the Post Office and the maintenance of water ways are clearly spelled out in the Constitution. That piece of s...paper G W Bush never learned about or studied as a history major at Yale.

    Besides having lived in several 3rd world countries before moving to the US. One sign of third world standard is no decent Postal Service and scrappy everything else we take for granted.

      If it were to close, expect the price of first class mail to triple or quadruple overnight, in addition to delays as the "big three" couldn't handle the massive increase in business.
