Postal Service decline experiences first hand

In the past few days, two creditors notified me payment was late for bills that I never received. Iím a stickler for paying bills fully and on time. As soon as I open an envelope, I set up an ebill pay and carefully discard the paid bill.

I know there are other payment options but managing multiple subscriptions and autopay accounts can easily get out of hand so I prefer billing by mail.

The problem with late-arriving bills is, of course, personal as it can potentially affect my credit. But I am more concerned that unprecedented poor service like this erodes confidence in yet another government agency leading others to choose alternatives to the Postal Service.

Normally I wouldnít be as concerned but when the postmaster general is invested in a company that competes with the Postal Service itís a problem.

I hope they dump him fast.

I just finished watching the documentary The Way I See It.

Iím sure many here have already seen it but it just brought a couple of thoughts to mind.

First some background: Pete Souza contrasts historic and intimate moments as a photographer for presidents Obama, Reagan and **.

In comparison to virtually unlimited free access during other administrations, Souza became alarmed and began speaking out because ** isolationist policies prevented capturing the photojournalistic history of his presidency. There are very few if any behind-the-scenes images of **.

The isolation affected us all. He isolated usóor tried toófrom the world; and from each other. Isolation is a hallmark tactic of abusers. Hitler isolated himself and Germany from the rest of the world in order to commit heinous crimes against humanity. We were very much in similar grave danger had he gotten the office a second time.

He must be prevented from any further divisive/isolationist actions. He must never hold office again. He and his name should be shunned. Forever.

Bush is more "likeable" by associating with Democrats.

He was secluded after his term until he snuggled up to Michelle and became fast friends. Since, heís not missed a chance to show up with Clinton and the Obamas at various events.

Most people I know donít realize the damage he did and consider him to be quite likable. And of course the media never details his record.

Democrats are and have always been much more likable and talented. Todayís celebration attested to that once again. I donít understand how our kindness, decency and talent donít continually, overwhelmingly eclipse the negativity, malice and hate of Republicans.

The staggered early departures are another anti-transition move

Esper, Chao, and Devos, Barr and the many other early resignations leave gaping holes in the puzzle of the activities of the Trump administration.

It will take a massive forensic effort to ramp up and then root out the disloyal people installed in federal agencies to undermine the government.

Some are easy to findólike Barrís daughter at the IRS and Dejoy at the Postal Service. But many more are unknowns. Dejoy abruptly fired 33 tenured postal executives replacing them overnight with less knowledgeable people to say the least.

Thereís no telling who has been appointed in agencies like the EPA, FCC and the Department of Agriculture and the rest.

Biden will be in unprecedented territory when he assumes office. I hope that he appoints someone to oversee federal government agencies as a whole to restore their integrity and passes a law to keep the integrity in place in line with the sworn oath taken by every federal employee.

Elected officials should not have to risk their lives to serve the country.

Immediate legislation must be passed to stop the continuing encroachment by right wing terrorists on not just political rights but the right to exist and live and breathe.

Little to nothing was done to stamp out any further action against elected officials after Gabby Giffords was shot and her career ended. The decade or so since has led to the insurrection with incident after incident in between -- and no firm action to stop it. During Obamas term the fence around the White House was breached multiple times terrorizing him and his family. After Obama left office drones have been flown over his home and pictures splayed over social media multiple times basically invading his privacy and security. Then we just saw Pelosi's house vandalized following open threats against the life of the governor of Michigan. And then we had the rudimentary spray painting of Mitch McConnell's house even though threats and attacks against Democrats seem to be of a more serious nature than their Republican counterparts--yet equivalencies are drawn as though they are equal.

The solution must liken threats of harm against elected officials to the level of yelling fire in a crowded theater.

Speech that gives any appearance of leading to or inciting harm, threats or actual injury to any elected officials or to those assigned to protect them in service of the American people cannot be tolerated.
