When Government Becomes A Cesspool of Unthinkable Waste

By, Chris Rossini

They say that what goes on the Internet is forever. Well, this one is for future generations who look back at our times to analyze the totalitarian mentality, and how it operates.

Evidently, Michelle Obama has some kind of program called "Let's Move" to end childhood obesity. And yes, it's just another boondoggle. Well, it looks like some bureaucrats got together and decided to create a Let's Move stamp series.

Postal Blog gives some juicy details:
With the Just Move! stamp issuance the U.S. Postal Service hoped to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity in achieving a healthy lifestyle.
Yes you read that correctly. The U.S. Postal Service, which losses about $4,000,000,000 in a single year, is looking to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity!! An organization that should have been shutdown years ago (but because it's government, it never goes away, no matter how much it loses) is going to raise physical fitness awareness with friggin' stamps!

You know when a kid looks at a stamp? It probably ranges from never to "what's a stamp?".

Here's a look at the goofy stamps: the government was going to make some useless stamps. It has no conception about what people really want, or the satisfaction of consumer desires. It can also care less about costs. Who doesn't know that? So what's the big deal with the a bunch of worthless stamps?

Well, the story gets better.

It turns out the stamps that were already printed are going to be destroyed. Wait until you hear the reason why:
...the USPS will be destroying the entire press run after receiving concerns from the President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition over alleged “unsafe” acts depicted on three of the stamps (cannonball dive, skateboarding without kneepads and a headstand without a helmet). (There’s also a batter without a batting helmet, a girl balancing on a slippery rock, and a soccer player without kneepads or shin pads.)
The President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition?

What on Earth?

And this "Council" decided that these acts are just too "unsafe"?

Americans go to work to fund this complete waste....and then get a hysterical earful when 17% of these tax-eaters go on a paid vacation.

C-E-S-S-P-O-O-L !
