Maybe not snow, rain, heat or gloom of night, but what about Trump?

There are some serious shenanigans going on at the postal service. Most recently, it’s been reported that a large number of high-speed sorting machines are being taken out of service. This comes directly on the heels of an advisory that mail-in ballots may be delayed. posted by CheeseDigestsAll (4 comments total) 1 user marked this as a favorite

Nothing stops the mail.

I read this earlier today, likely from Kottke.org, thoughts from a mail carrier on this whole shitshow: After a couple hundred years it just stopped.

I learned this fact which I didn’t know before and I was confused about how this crisis suddenly went into overdrive:

“A few months ago our Postmaster General Megan Brennan retired. She was a postal lifer, and got a lot of respect for that, but she was also a pretty ineffectual bureaucrat whose primary accomplishment as PMG seemed to be ignoring Donald Trump’s temper tantrums. It seemed to really bother the guy that he had no official authority over USPS, so pretty much every time The Washington Post ran a mean story about Donald, he’d publicly scream at Brennan to jack up Amazon package prices to get back at Jeff Bezos. To the bitter end of her career she just…ignored him. She was the Pelé of that shit.

That’s where Louis DeJoy enters as our new Postmaster General.”

If Trump loses, then the Postmaster General is going to jail right?

Any time I read or hear about this I have to take a buspar. These days my anxiety is through the roof.
