Though the always-transparent (NOT!) White House web site contains no news of it, President Barack Obama has reportedly signed an executive order — yes, another one. This time, he’s tasked the United States Postal Service to help distribute countermeasures in the event of a biological weapons attack within the United States.
Why the Postal Service? Because, according to a New York Times report, of its ”capacity for rapid residential delivery.” Yeah, right.
AFP reports President Obama has given Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius 180 days to come up with the plan for the USPS. Sigh.
Among those likely to be excited about the prospects of letter carriers distributing countermeasures to bioweapons is the man shown in the video above. During an anti-socialism rally Oct 3 in O’Fallon, Mo., he was one of a handful of union-organized counter-protesters who showed up to express unbridled support for government-run health care. Incredibly, he cited the USPS as a prime example of government’s ability to run things “beautifully.”
