1) Jim Cooper is right. Too many people are unaware of what is going on, or they simply don't understand its importance.

2) Trump’s ultimate goal is to destroy voters’ faith in the democratic system—the USPS is just collateral damage in that war. Tragically for this country, he has succeeded beyond his wildest dreams, and probably even beyond the dreams of his Russian puppet masters.

Depending on your viewpoint, that this all is so overt is either the best or worst part. There's barely a pretense that this isn't sabotage.

Thank you, Judd. Of all the crap that #Mangowanker has pulled, the attacks on the USPS are the one thing that makes me feel ill. This must be stopped and fully reversed.

Judd, You forgot the Friday Night Massacre (August 7, 2020). As the Washington Post reported:

"Twenty-three postal executives were reassigned or displaced, the new organizational chart shows. Analysts say the structure centralizes power around DeJoy, a former logistics executive and major ally of President Trump, and de-emphasizes decades of institutional postal knowledge."

Nothing makes me madder right now, and believe me the mad list is long, than this damn minion DeJoy and Trump cheating in this election.

Many people are employed by the USPS and great many of them are Armed Forces Veterans.

I thank you for firing me up more. I mail cards and letters every week to support the USPS.

That being said Congress has treated the P.O. like a stinky fish imposing funding restrictions on the retirement fund for about 2 decades.

Where are they? On recess. Damn them too. Both sides.

Our Democracy grows more perilous by the day.

I’m afraid I saw this coming a mile away. When this damn pandemic got going well, and we started seeing voting problems in the primaries I knew the mail service was next to be bombed by trump. He’s so predictable yet it has been allowed to get this far into damaging vital machines and trashing them. Trump has got to be held accountable somehow for all of his unconstitutional and criminal behavior! “Normal“ has never gotten a foothold in this administration. He along with republican’s help are tearing our vital organs out one by one. He’s going after our heart now.
