    I saw on twitter that states and using state election laws was a good way to counter what trump and his lackeys are doing at the post office, glad that some states have started the process.

    Itís baked into the American experiment that states are responsible for running their own elections and states get REAL salty when the federal government tries to mess with that shit.

    Secretary Hobbs won a close election in 2018. I doubt her Republican opponent would bother protecting voting rights like she is.

    I mentioned this take to my 81yo mom (WFU '76) and she was dismayed that a fellow WFU grad could say something so stupid.

    What did they say?


    This is a response I got from a conservative who posted in response to the Postal Workers Union meme:

    ďHave you ever toured a post office? They arenít staffed by predominant Republicans. But keep drinking the DemoHateIc Kool-Aid.Ē

    Both said they wrote to DeJoy asking for answers. From Gianforte's* letter:

    I am a strong proponent of the USPS and will continue to ensure that Montanans have access to reliable mail service. During the current public health crisis, it is more important than ever the USPS continue to provide prompt, dependable delivery service. I appreciate that the Postal Service faces financial challenges, and I have cosponsored and voted for legislation to fix the pension prefunding issue. Regardless, balancing the books by slowing delivery and reducing options Montanans have come to rely on gives me great concern.

    Feckless.

    Of course, Iím sure this has nothing to do with Daines being in a close Senate race with Steve Bullock.

    LOL. They aren't supposed to be staffed by "predominantly" Republicans or Democrats, at least since the civil service act was introduced. They're supposed to be professional government employees whose job is to move the mail as efficiently and quickly as possible. Trump is all about going back to the nineteenth-century spoils system, that's for sure.

    Local post offices are still a big deal in rural areas, with their older populations, and I would imagine that in a large, heavily rural, spread-out state like Montana they're even more important. Bullock could make some real political hay if he hits Daines hard on this, imo.

    for some the real problem with Trump is that he keeps saying the quiet parts loud

    Probably. She wasnít my friend though. I donít see any other way she would know the politics of uniformed postal workers except by race.

    So Iím probably gonna be waiting for all those used paperbacks I got hella cheap from Betterworld Books for a while, huh?

    Those of us that live way out in the cut are pretty heavily reliant on the usps, to echo earlier assertions.

    Your mother is 81 years old and she graduated from Wake in Ď76?

    I blame Ronald Reagan. That piece of shit put all the current GOP idiocy in their heads about government bad and poors are gaming the system and conservatives got where they are with rugged individualism. All horse shit. Every last word, a con.
