To provider a slower, cheaper version of their own service. They take the package to your local post office and the local post office takes it to your door. Saves ups and fedex some time from having to make all the local stops. But the post office does this for so cheap that they lose money. A $25 billion loss over 2 years. That is horrible management.
The U.S. Postal Service is the poster child for why the government should not run things. If it were a privately owned company, it would have changed with the times to become more agile and efficient. But instead it is run by the government, where it takes an act of congress to change a business practice. And we all know how efficient congress is at passing legislation. If you think USPS is bad, just wait until ObamaCare is implemented.
First of all, nobody has ever said that Al Jazeera is a terrorist organization, no idea where you got that idea. Fox News has been the only one to call Al Gore out on his blatant hypocrisy by selling his television network to a network funded by oil money. Al Jazeera (non-english) has also thrown a birthday party for a convicted child killer. So beyond the oil issue there is also a moral issue of why anyone would do business with them. But then again, progressives don't have morals.
