From USA Today (H/T to The Agitator):
Great job Mailman! Nothing bothers me more than the government interfering with private charity. Well ok, other things bother me more, but this bothers me a lot right now. Basically we have an issue where the government has decided that its the only one who knows the best way to do something, and will do what it thinks is right for the people. What's sad here, is that the people are saying they want his help... and ultimately isn't the government supposed to serve the people?
What's the ultimate lesson here? The government is saying once again that donating your money is just fine (because they'll decide how to spend it), but donating your time and effort isn't acceptable? Donating time and effort to a cause like this I think yields much more in the end, and the government out to be welcoming anyone who wants to help. Just another case of overblown regulation getting in the way of the ultimate goal of helping people.
