Why not a Post Office bank?
I'd sure rather put my money in the Post Office bank as opposed to a den of thieves and CEO snakepit like Bank of America:
On July 27, 2012, the National Association of Letter Carriers adopted a resolution at their national convention in Minneapolis to investigate the establishment of a postal banking system. The resolution noted that expanding postal services and developing new sources of revenue are important components of any effort to save the public post office and preserve living-wage jobs; that many countries have a long and successful history of postal banking, including Germany, France, Italy, Japan and the United States itself; and that postal banks could serve the nine million people who don't have a bank account and the 21 million who use usurious check cashers, giving low-income people access to a safe banking system. "A USPS [United States Postal Service] bank would offer a 'public option' for banking," concluded the resolution, "providing basic checking and savings - and no complex financial wheeling and dealing."
Gee, you'd think the Democrats and The Greatest Orator of Our Time would be pushing this; it saves a great -- and Constitutionally established -- American institution, it helps preserve unions and good jobs, and it would give hundreds of millions of Americans a place to put their money where Lloyd and Jamie and Michael couldn't out their trotters on it.
BWA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!!! Who am I kidding? I crack myself up, sometimes....
