A 200-year-old, Constitutionally enshrined institution that provides an excellent service at a reasonable cost, or an overpriced, planned-obsolescence piece of fashion trash made by slaves who don’t earn enough to afford one themselves? Clearly a ringing endorsement for investment in government. A good cartoon.

You forgot the part where the one on the right only works because of government regulation of transmission frequencies and a massive goverment-developed communications infrastructure.

Also, y’know, the United States Postal Service is run like a privately-owned business and is not tax-supported except for those funds used to compensate USPS for postage-free mailing for legally blind folks and such.  Postal workers get their pay from the stamps you buy, just like how Starbucks employees get their pay from the coffee you buy.  Tax payers do not pay a postal worker’s salary.  

I suddenly want to fling my iPod out the window. Take THAT iPod! …Wait, what have I done?! COME BACK TO ME!

IT MAKES SENSE NOW! Starting from equal numbers, any significant use of such magic would ensure that the gender ratios gradually swing toward being female-heavy!
Male-male couples couldn&#8217;t have offspring without adopting. F-F couples could, but it would always be a filly. With normal hetero couples having an even chance of filly or colt, the rate of increase in the female to male ratio would depend on how commonplace female couples using fertility magic were, as well as how many years it&#8217;s been going on!
Genetics plus magic plus time equals matriarchy! :D
