Socialism and Electric Cars: Failures for Five Generations and Sponsored by Democrats Everywhere

First of all, the USPS is NOT a government organization, but a private business. (sigh). Second, the USPS does NOT photograph every piece of mail. (sigh) It does run it thru multiple scanners. One is a bio scanner - developed since the "white powder" scare - that can locate poisons, etc. Another is a zip code scanner, to electronically put zip codes on the mail so that it can be electronically sorted. This saves time and money... except when your Grammy writes so illegibly that her letter has to be kicked out and a real live human has to figure out what zip code (if any) she scrawled on the envelope. Third, Because of ridiculous government regulations - the latest of which is a Congressional math error that has required the USPS to put billions into a slush 'retirement fund' (the only private OR public company in the country that has to do so) the USPS is on the verge of bankruptcy. Congress refuses to correct its error, and is costing the USPS as well as its customer billions of dollars. This is why postal rates keep climbing - not because they are a subsidiary of the government. If you think that this makes the USPS friends of the government, you are mistaken. These facts that you don't know, and that you only hysterically screech about what you think you know, make your entire rant suspect. - Police State: USPS, DOE, IRS, FEC, GSA, DEA, FBI, NSA, DoS, DoD Spying on You
Dear Comrade Beatrice,
Then I guess the Post Office is the only private organization that has it’s own police force with federal policing powers, huh? It’s called the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and it bills itself as the “Federal law enforcement and security arm of the U.S Postal Service.”
If what you are saying is true, I’m starting my OWN private organization with a federal law enforcement arm and bill it as “John’s Constitutional and Oath of Office law enforcement arm.”
Giddy up, DC. Police a’comin’.
I have sympathy for your point of view, however Beatrice. It’s not your fault. It’s society’s fault—Old White Men, that is-- that you’re a delusional liberal.
Being a liberal, you were probably thrown off by the fact that the Post Office is one of the few agencies of the federal government that derives its power explicitly from the Constitution of the United States of America.
In falls under Section 8, also known as the “Enumerated Powers.”
The Constitution is kind of a blind spot for you guys, being both liberal and delusional.
But I repeat myself.
Too, you might have missed the article from the Associated Press where the Postmaster General says that they “image” all the mail.
I don’t know what “image” means to you, but to me, without even using the dictionary, it’s a verb that means: to take pictures of.
So, let me refresh your memory from the AP:
The Postal Service takes pictures of every piece of mail processed in the United States — 160 billion last year — and keeps them on hand for up to a month.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe said the photos of the exterior of mail pieces are used primarily for the sorting process, but they are available for law enforcement, if requested.
I know, I know: You’re latching on to that “primarily for sorting process” phrase the AP uses and substituting “scan” for the word “picture” to convince yourself that the Loyal Democrats aren’t spying.
Which is more proof that amazing things happen when let your LAST best-president-of-the-United-States-ever redefine oral sex as no sex whatsoever, under any circumstances.
“I want you to listen to me,” he said, “I’m gonna say this again. I did not have sex with that woman.”
Gee, from there to here in less than 20 years?
Here’s the give away in the AP article that the “images” kept by the USPS are all about spying: “The automated mail tracking program was created after the deadly anthrax attacks in 2001,” writes the AP, “so the Postal Service could more easily track hazardous substances and keep people safe, Donahoe said.”
Glad to know that they created a system to track us and keep us safe so that they could use it mostly for other purposes.
But here’s the biggest giveaway: Do you really think the Post Office is so smart that they would actually create something that automatically puts zip codes on envelopes when they could hire thousands to do it for more money?
I didn’t think so either.
It’s the United States Post Office…come on.

Dear Comrade Barskor,
I have no idea what you are talking about. But thankfully, neither do you.
Now go punch in and image all that mail.
