The fleecing of the American public

Can you believe it? Starting June 30th, a stamp for a first class letter will cost you 37 cents. When I was born, a stamp was 8 cents. That is an increase of 460% over the span of almost 30 years. This change will net the U.S.P.S. 500 million dollars extra, a month.

Compare that to the value of a fetus. During that same time, a fetus' value was downgraded from priceless (protected under law) to around 300 dollars (the average cost of an abortion). This change has robbed the United States of countless individuals who could have made tremendous ethical, moral, philosophical, scientific and theological impacts on our world. Just imagine if Martin Luther King or Jonas Salk's parents had decided to get abortions.

Now, you tell me that the inhabitants of the United States aren't getting fleeced. Oh, and say it with a straight face.
