  2. And they’re doing the same thing to the Post Office. Bills with different names but the same conditions are pushed forward through committees by those who want to make profit from the end of government programs and even those that aren’t paid for with taxes such as the Post Office. The educational system has been weakened to the point where it’s going to be difficult to regain what has been lost but if nothing is done it will continue to become even more unavailable for the average person.So my hats off to those who are protesting the actions that would further weaken our educational system. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Up3CW85q-c
