The Postal Service announced that it will stop delivering mail on Saturdays in an effort to save $2 billion a year. Postal workers were shocked: We were supposed to deliver mail on Saturdays?
It was just revealed that the Federal Reserve was hacked. Its pretty serious. In fact, they say the hackers couldve made off with as much as negative $14 trillion.

Pope Benedict is resigning. And you know what that means: Hillary in 2013?
With the pope retiring, more than 100 cardinals will sequester themselves in the Sistine Chapel to choose the next pope. Theyll send out white smoke if theyve chosen somebody, black smoke if they havent chosen somebody, and a text message when they find out that its 2013.

How many of you watched the State of the Union address just for the commercials?

President Obama gave his State of the Union address.

If were really serious about reducing the size of government, start with that guy. What does he work, one day a year?
President Obama wants Congress to increase the minimum wage. Believe me, when it comes to doing the minimum for their wage, Congress knows what its talking about.
This is a real break with tradition. When the president walked into the chamber, instead of Hail to the Chief, they played Hey, Big Spender.
