cefm: I don't get what dejoy is doing staying on. The position isn't meant to be political but his nomination absolutely was. But that means staying on means he's voluntarily supporting a democratic president. If he was a true political animal he'd leave. If he needed the money he'd maybe stay but he has much more profitable options going back to his old company. Other than spite and destruction his presence makes no sense. Oh wait.


He is a FedEx guy. When FedEx was established, there was not room for them in the marketplace so they bought enough congresscritters to forbid USPS from expanding services, while spinning them off into a public-private enterprise that was required to be self-funding. They have since kneecapped USPS at every turn. "Oh, we're no longer bleeding money!" "Oh yeah? Then prepay all pensions for all employees you will hire over the next 50 years!" And so on.

DeJoy bought himself that position so he could ensure that parcel delivery would go to FedEx rather than USPS because the post office was still the choice of many small businesses. His purpose was not to serve Trump's goals but to drive American home based businesses to use FedEx especially since FedEx walked away from Amazon.

Growing up Gen-X, I remember hearing all kinds of lame-ass jokes about how slow the mail was. Funny thing is, it was never really that slow. By the aughts, I think it was pretty damn fast. Mail a letter across the country in a few days? No probs. Then DeJerkoff hit. Now the jokes have come true.

It seems like there is plenty of cause to remove them. The massive drop in postal service quality alone is plenty of cause to fire and replace the whole board. And that's without even getting into all the other problems with DeJoy's appointment, such as the corruption aspect, the political interference by the White House, the attempt to screw with the election...

What more "cause" do we need? They are supporting the tenure of a demonstrably incompetent and corrupt political hack.

Because the President didn't officially appoint him. The PO Board of Governors did. Trump's goons there picked Dejoy on Trump's instructions, but not officially. The Postmaster General is supposed to be non-partisan, so the mostly bipartisan Board picks him. Trump and McConnell corrupted the Board by not letting Obama appoint the Board and then Trump picking only partisan hacks loyal to him. Once Biden's picks are in they can fire that farker.

The on-time delivery rate dropping so much over 2020 and destroying untold millions of dollars of functioning mail sorting equipment seems like pretty good cause. If I farked my job up that badly, I'd probably get sued in addition to being fired.

I would be fine with USPS dropping to a 3-day-a-week alternating schedule for residential letter delivery (M-W-F for half of homes, Tu-Th-Sa for the other half). Keep mail to businesses, parcels, and last-mile delivery at 6 days a week.

There are no letters that come to my house that can't wait one more day to be delivered, Most letters I get are just presorted standard marketing stuff. But I would like packages to arrive promptly. I would think I'm a pretty typical postal customer in that respect.

But slowing down mail processing is a stupid idea clearly meant to cripple the USPS for the advantage of other delivery companies.

I got a Christmas card on Feburary 12th that was postmarked December 9th.  From less than 20 miles away.  Almost caused an actual row with family (not me; I didn't particularly care), when some of us didn't believe a card was actually sent and could be that late.

Also, from my earlier post, I stand corrected.  Apparently there's only so much Biden can do in a month, which is understandable.  Somebody's got to prioritize the tire fires.
