I fashion headings and categories omnibus-style these days..... so I can find them again, among other things.
The postal "service" is berserk with racial correctness and has been for a long, long time. At the one I have to use and probably others all over the country, they have nauseating feelgood posters of supposed customers with little mottoes about what PO services they love. For at least 10 years they've been the same pictures -- three nonwhite faces to one white one (a semi-"punk" looking young woman to epitomize chic white deracination).
Had to go to the counter today to get a money order to pay a NC highwayman's ticket. I never</span> go to the counter if I can help it. Of course mostly black womenare behind it --and for years, an especially porculent one has kept a boombox on the back shelf quietly but annoyingly playing soul music all day every day. Can't remember the last time I saw a man behind the counter there despite the PO's aggressive pose as the ultimate expression of institutional PC.
My reason for ranting today is that they had a new product in a display box right at the front edge</span> of the counter -- talk about shoving the stuff in your face! --
Civil Rights Movement DVD and Postcard Set</span>

Surely many of you have seen it. Now -- how much more blatant can it get? A pack of postcards is one thing, also very edgy and arrogant, but a "Civil Rights Movement DVD" is a declaration that USPS is about "civil rights" first and moving mail second, maybe third, fourth or fifth.
Theren there's USPS's choice of stamp images. No society with any shared sense of purpose would accept them. These range from Hannukkah, Kwanzaa and Ramadan to fringe cultural and political figures like Ralph Bunche, Luis Muñoz Marin and Frida Kahlo. Plus entertainment fluff like Elvis and Marilyn Monroe.
Only the totally baffling choice of Kahlo raised a bead of sweat with the public, and that only briefly with astute commentators like Phyllis Schlafly. I'd never heard of the witch (a nutball commie painter) -- no doubt her name would still draw a blank with the vast majority of postal "customers" as well today.
The guy in line behind me had a stack of letters with the whopping 42c required on each. I told him how to short the PO on most correspondence, even foreign; he seemed to like the idea.
Surely you good people aren't paying full price for your outgoing mail?
An article entitled "Postal Service Going Broke"
http://www.davidduke.com/general/pos...e-going-broke_ 23007.htmlOf course, that also may well have a lot to do with the increased use of e-mail over the past 15 years. One of the many plans lying in wait on the liberal Agenda is to let the Post Office get their bureaucratic hands on e-mail and make a charge per e-mail. We’ve been able to shut them down on that, but then they’ll just dump the costs of the postal service on taxpayers.
