    What is Don's connection to the USPS?

    I know he does get around (his Tamiflu connection, for example, is a bit "out of the box" for a Secretary of Defense) but I'm quite intrigued about his connections to US Mail.

    Please elaborate!!

    •  The connection to Rumsfeld? (0+ / 0-)

      It's privatization. Rummy hired private contractors such as
      Halliburton and its affiliate KBR to do much of what the military previously did. Remember the electrocution of a number of service people during the Iraq war? That was KBR - the poster child of what happens when government privatizes. As a previous poster mentioned, private firms that would do what the postal service does now might not be the best plan - but it seems that privatization is the path the the Republicans seem to be taking.
