When was the last time you got anything important in the daily mail delivery? Think about it for a minute. Oh, I get a couple of checks in the mail each month that I could easily convert to auto-deposit to my bank account if I invested 10 minutes of time. But otherwise, about 99% of what we get in the mail each day is trash: solicitations, catalogs we never open, and pounds of additional junk mail.
The simple truth about the Post Office is that is an anachronism: A relic of the past that could not compete 50 years ago and certainly cannot compete today. It is a bloated, dying business model run by not-very-bright bureaucrats in Washington.
It is into this dying business model that communist Democrats in the nation’s capital are currently holding up a deal on another stimulus bill so they can pour another $27 billion down the same old rathole that has sucked up hundreds of billions – probably trillions – over the years. And because President Trump and Mitch McConnell refuse to agree to that additional wasteful spending, the Democrats and their corrupt media toadies are pushing the narrative that the Republicans are engaging in “voter suppression” by trying to “dismantle the post office.”
You just could never make this stuff up, folks.
It was into this absurd bit of DC Swamp Kabuki theater that elderly, addled Creepy Uncle Quid Pro Handsy Farty China Joe Biden dipped a spindly toe yesterday, pushing a new conspiracy theory that only a communist Democrat could buy:
Joe Biden tonight on reports of mailbox removals: "I wonder if you're outside trying to hold down your mailboxes. They’re going around literally with tractor trailers picking up mailboxes. You oughta go online and check out what they're doing in Oregon. I mean, it's bizarre!"

Yes, friends, the dementia-riddled nominee of the communist Democrat Party actually believes that the President of the United States has now ordered the U.S. Postal Service to get out the tractors and go remove all the mailboxes. This is a conspiracy theory that makes the whole “Russia Collusion” fantasy look positively rational by comparison.
The Unfrozen Caveman Democrat nominee was apparently spooked by a story carried on Thursday by the Oregonian newspaper. Here’s an excerpt:
Residents of Portland and Eugene were alarmed this week to see some U.S. Postal Service mailboxes removed from neighborhood streets and hauled away in flatbed trucks.
The sight of mailboxes being carted off caused concern in light of recent comments by President Donald Trump about cutting Postal Service funding. Trump has also criticized voting by mail.
But a Postal Service spokesperson said declining mail volume means the Postal Service is removing “duplicate” boxes from areas that have multiple collection boxes. The USPS confirmed that four mailboxes were removed in Portland this week.
Ok, so four – count ’em FOUR – duplicate, unneeded mailboxes were removed in one communist Democrat-run city last week, and the Democrat nominee rolls that into a giant nationwide conspiracy theory. Note also how the corrupt writer of this piece alleges that the President, by refusing to waste another $27 billion over and above the current Postal Service budget, is somehow “cutting Postal Service funding.” Right out of the DNC talking points email, no doubt.
- The U.S. Postal Service is a dying relic and we need to just let it die.
- Nobody in the GOP is advocating “cutting funding” to the Postal Service budget, even though they would be doing the country a service by cutting it out entirely.
- The Democrat/media narrative that the USPS desperately needs another $27 billion to accommodate their “vote by mail” scheme for this year’s elections is a fiction: Even if congress allocated the extra money, it would be impossible for USPS management to spend any of it prior to November 3.
- This is, in other words, just another fake narrative invented out of whole cloth by the Democrats and parroted by the nation’s raging dumpster fire news media.
Oh, and Joe Biden is a mentally-addled reprobate who would destroy our country if he wins in November.
Did I leave anything out?
That is all.
