The stupid, it burns! Postal worker came by at 8 PM, delivering districts

And said he was so angry at Biden, it was Biden's fault that worker cutbacks have increased the workload so much.

Told him he should be mad at Louis DeJoy, the Postmaster General, or at Trump who pushed for him.

He said that wasn't the issue at all, it was Biden's budget cuts that were causing this.

Explained that the President has no say in operations.

No use.

1. Yeah, they're all over the place out there.

I met a guy in line at the grocery store once who told me Obama made all the ice cream containers smaller.

3. Riiiight, and don't forget the orange juice containers, and coffee cans.

This has been going on for quite some time...back to at least to the early 2000's when "W" filled the oval office chair.
Note: Assuming a competent president could be considered to be half gallon size, "W" would be a quart, and TFG would be a half pint.

So we're operating with TFG's last budget at the moment.

7. Chump and DeJoy came up with the idea to trash the new electronic sorters

Now that those machines are gone, everything is taking longer to sort of course.
Plus there's no money in the budget to buy replacement machines.
We should send a bill to Chump and DeJoy, make them pay for replacements.

his sidekick DeJoy were being billed for those sorters! Gotta love it!

12. republicans have been trying to get rid of the USPS for years.

I remember catching wind of their early efforts back in the 80s or 90s somewhere in there. But it got really targeted in the first Bush admin I believe. They wanted to get all that parcel business to their clients...FEDEX, UPS, DHL etc.


I guess no one ever thought it would be the Republican Party finishing off the Postal Service when those words were borrowed from the ancient Greek and chiseled in granite over the entrance to the James Farley Post Office in New York City on Labor Day in 1914.

With trump's appointment of DeJoy, it's still going on. Hope Biden finally gets rid of him.

Our postal system is quite remarkable if you think about it for a minute.

For just 44 cents, you can send a Mother’s Day card from anywhere in the United States to the woman who carried you for nine months providing she lives in the United States and it will arrive in a matter of days. Or as Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart more simply quipped, “Someone comes to your house, takes something you’ve written, and brings it to a person that you want them to give it to anywhere in the world for like 50 cents” before deadpanning, “oh, but it’s going to take a couple of days.”

The power to create post offices is enumerated in our Constitution. Our Postal Service is even fully funded by the sale of stamps, not through tax dollars. That is a combo that should bring tears of joy to the eyes of tea partiers and Republicans alike.

GOP efforts to cripple the Postal Service predate the current tea party “cut government spending” drumbeat echoing throughout Washington during these difficult economic times.

Five years ago, during the Bush administration, the Postal Service handled the largest volume of mail ever seen in its 236-year history. It was in that year, that the Republican controlled
Congressed passed the Postal Accountability Enhancement Act (PAEA).

The legislation’s title certainly sounds pretty great. But, as is the case with so much in Washington, the words chosen were simply window dressing for a very destructive proposal.

As Truth-Out.org’s Allison Kilkenny recently reported, by passing PAEA, Congressional Republicans mandated that within 10 years the United States Postal Service would have to fully fund retirement health care benefits for the next 75 years. Or to put it more plainly, the Postal Service had a decade to fully fund the retirement health care benefits for future employees that will not even be born until 2057 at the earliest.


Under DeJoy it's still going on. Hope Biden finally gets rid of him.

Many are relatively uneducated, and this is a very good job for veterans, who get preference for some reason in these types of jobs.

9. Someone is lying to the postal workers. DeJoy's minions

most likely, to deflect blame away from the real cause - DeJoy.

21. He should be filing a grievance for working after 8

He should be filing a grievance but this nimrod is probably just another union basher that doesn't get involved but always seems to blame the union for all of his problems at work. These guys piss me off, they don't pay dues but bitch and moan about why the union isn't doing this or that, failing to recognize there are two parties to the contract. There is a MASSIVE worker shortage of substitute carriers and part time help. Wages need to be increased to get people in or the postal service is going to be screwed. Looking at you DeJoy! DUers better order your crap now if you want it by Xmas! Fair warning.

23. I don't know the population density where you live, but

 

if it is towards the 'smaller' side I would tell him you are a Libertarian who votes R, and if you had YOUR way the USPS would be completely privatized, with the main focus on cost-cutting.

Reduce delivery days, repeal collective bargaining, do some major pension/benefits reform, and either raise the rates for low-density areas or better yet, close locations that have few customers.

that targets Republicans. Separate their politicians from their voters by issuing made up propaganda issues.
