This Day in History: July 26th

I woke up in a bad mood today, which is weird. Usually the only mood I’m in when I wake up is sleepy. Not today though. Today I was fucking livid. I couldn’t figure out why, until I realized what today is. On this day in 1775, the US Postal Service was established. It was like setting America up for disaster before we were even a country.

Everyone knows that America was formed to get us out of paying a few taxes that we didn’t like. Well, today we have to pay all sorts of taxes. I’m taxed for owning a car, for making money, for using my money to buy stuff, and if I had a house I’d be taxed for that too. Can’t do shit without the government getting in on the action.

You may ask me, “Blog God, what does this have to do with mail men?”

Well, who brings you the envelopes that say how much you “owe” the government? Who brings your hard earned money to the tax collectors? It’s the mail men. All of this is done through the United States Postal Service. If they didn’t exist, there would be no feasible way to collect taxes. So therefore it is their fault I have to pay so much money. I hate them for it.
