1. If this supid idiot

thinks he is going screw with the Post Office,he best think again. American Companies depend on the speed and accuracy of the Postal System just to stay in Business. Yes,middle aged and younger folks use Electronic Bill Paying daily,but,most older folks still use the Mail for receiving Social Security checks as well as pension Checks and use the mail for their bill paying.

Don't think Corporate America is going to stand for any disruption.

2. I really hope you're right about this.

I've been upset for years about how the republicans have tried to break the USPS. Now they're going postal on the USPS, trying to blow it out of the water.

3. Always have to laugh when

I here Privatize the Post Office. The Post Office is one hell of a expensive operation. It is not just the Labor aspect,it is the cost of Bricks and Mortar necessary,the cost of equipment maintenance and the Postal Service is in need of equipment replacement. And that alone is in the tens of Billions.

Fun fact,Sears used to operate the largest fleet of cars and trucks,followed by the Post Office.

Corporate America would love to Privatize the Postal Service only with you and I providing full Cost recovery. Well that is not going to happen.

4. I hope you are right

but, we are getting our mail on a much more infrequent schedule it seems. I have Informed Delivery and items that are arriving but haven't seen anything in two days now.

5. Try this,

our Letter Carrier is the Senior Dog at his Station,he could have pulled the pin last year and walk away with 80% of his highest monthly gross. But,Bob loves his job and he does not mind banking all the Mandatory overtime because of Covid infected Carriers. That is what the real story is,Trump does not want you to know just how many of the Postal Workers are out on sick leave.

Just think of the negative feed back that will cause.

As for the Mail Slow down,a new method of Sorting and Delivery started last Saturday. The Carriers used to sort every morning before doing their deliveries,now it is Sort after doing your route for the next day. But,the Sick outs are messing things up royally thus far.

6. Back in 1995 the USPS issued a Nixon stamp

then some clever person came up with a "Nixon behind bars" envelope. The set was sent out to my friends for birthdays and other festive events. They were a hit.

I tried to find a picture, but this is the best I can do:

https://www.google.com/search?q=nixon+stamps+jail+overlay&client=safari&rls=en&tbm=isch&source=iu&ictx=1&fir=CBALKHPMSlI7pM%252CfiC_L2lffHLVIM%252C_&vet=1&usg=AI4_-kQu1uWpmlrdcSzSD8NxEP0u5cwc-w&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiBnofUr_rqAhW8HjQIHY--DhkQ9QEwBXoECAoQBQ&biw=1206&bih=839#imgrc=CBALKHPMSlI7pM

Since I'm not clever about posting pictures, perhaps some kind DUer will help me out.
