Social Security & Post Office
Social security is primarily a social insurance program providing social protection or protection against socially recognized conditions, including poverty, old age, disability, unemployment and others. A post office is a facility forming part of a postal system for the posting, receipt, sorting, handling, transmission or delivery of mail./5

For the first time ever, I voted a straight DEM ticket this go around. Normally as I go through the candidates and issues I find a few repubs I like on issues...not this time. even in our local races...like county charter commission... I couldnt get behind the t-party candidate the repubs put up. County charter candidates were writing editor letters to cut medicare, ACA and the post office!!! Let's recap and take a look back at all the things the Republican Party has voted against and wants to abolish: Medicare, Social Security, unemployment insurance, Health Care, jobs programs, Minimum Wage, the U.S. Post Office, affordable education, consumer protections, environmental protections, renewable energy, equal pay for women, freedom to marry, banking regulations reducing voter turnout.- *** we will be lucky to get 28% for this election.
I've wondered why when thing go wrong in the country liberals especially panic and look to government to fix the problem? Government? You mean this same government that gave us the VA, Benghazi, the Post Office, the Obamacare website and bankrupted Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, creates more problems than they solve and politicians that will lie to you at every turn. Haven't we scene what government does in Cuba and the old Soviet Union? How about people have enough confidence to turn to YOURSELF and the YES WE CAN spirit of the individual, NOT the government because the government CAN'T. There is no incentive what so ever! It's time to grow up liberals.
I am not one to go for government "conspiracy theories", but am beginning to wonder!!! Social Security a week and a half ago, and now the Post Office...ugh. The post mistress called me to say, "Sorry, you are not in the system for change of address", even though I did it nearly 3 weeks ago...so my mail must be in postal cyberspace or some dead end warehouse somewhere. Well, glad I took that moment on my way to the Whistle Stop today. Hopefully it was remedied on the phone and I should start getting my mail sometime in the next millennium!!!
Let me get this straight. We're going to be "gifted" with a Health Care plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don't, which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor, but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, who have recently demonstrated their objective and professional integrity; written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that didn't read it but exempted themselves from it, and signed by a Dumbo President who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, for which we'll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect, by a government which has already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, Fannie Mae and Freddy Mac, and the Post Office all to be overseen by a Surgeon General who is obese, and financed by a country that's broke!
HOW WILL A GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN AFFECT YOU? Here's what might happen if the government does shut down: WILL I STILL GET MAIL? • While Postal Service employees are federal workers, the Post Office's budget is not funded by the United States Treasury, meaning the bureau is largely unaffected by shutdowns. WHAT ABOUT MY SOCIAL SECURITY CHECK? • Because post offices are up and running, Social Security checks are still sent out and doctors receive Medicaid and Medicare reimbursements. • But if the shutdown extends beyond a few days, fewer federal employees will be available to handle government affairs, meaning many program disbursements will crawl to a standstill. WHO WORKS? • In the event of a shutdown, federal employees are designated as either "essential" or "non-essential" workers. • Essential workers, the approximate one-third of the federal work force who "provide for the national security" or for the "safety of life and property," such as Congress, the president, Defense Department officials, ...
I just can't get the Post Office out of my thoughts tonight. How many of you know that the Postal employees use e-mail in their day to day communications between offices? How many know that they do not realize that the elderly and all Social Security recipients have their checks Direct Deposited? The speaker at tonight's meeting also referred to those people who receive assistance and said that "they prefer to get their checks early in the morning and the unemployed want to get their checks early in the day." Obviously he is not elderly, poor or unemployed or he would know most things are done Direct Deposit or on re-loadable cards. If it weren't that people would lose jobs and our town would be stripped of its identity I wouldn't spend another penny supporting the Post Office. These bureaucrats live in a fantasy world.
Just given a speech to the Public and Commercial Service Union meeting [PCS - My old Union - DWP Social Security and IR&C] who are on Strike Today fro better jobs and services. Went very well was interviewed after for a local radio station. Not as many there as should have been the Civil Service workforce has been decimated - just like Post Office workers and the NHS. Sadly there were not as many there as i would have hoped - but some memebers spoke about supporting the Anti-Bedroom Tax Campaign and other Solidarity campaigns with the Working Class. One leading member spoke of her disappointment that many DWP staff treated the Strike Day as "A day off work" instead of coming to hte meeting or joining the strike in solidarity. She said people were afraid for their jobs, that they had been and were being bullied by management. That people were pressured into cooperating with privatisation on an ever great scale - and that they were aware they were undermining their own employment. Its been a busy week - Giv ...
Quite a Social Security day. Spent most of the time with Mom: going places to pay her bills - in person - never by mail - she doesn't trust the Post Office. To the bank at HyVee first. The young teller she doesn't like wasn't there. If I was paranoid, I'd think he expected her in and deliberately took the day off! HyVee, gas company, electric company, her landlady. and then WalMart. Though she was walking way better than me - after my fall yesterday, she mentioned, "I'm in bad shape today so stick with me." Misplaced her at least four times. Every older woman in WalMart wore a blue coat today. Knew she needed masking tape to attach her Little Shop of Horrors vine across her kitchen windows so I pulled out a 5-gallon bucket of paint, sat down, and ate one of the day-old brownies in my cart. We headed to the check-out. Thankfully, the ornery little wart-hog that usually checks out in the Garden Center was on a break. Mom was paying for her stuff while I walked out to the car to load my groceries ...
Anyone else having a "Monday"? Coffee-maker malfunction and most of it all over the machine and counter. But it did come on automatically, even if not into the pot. Trying to clean up all evidence before wife wakes up. She is not thrilled that I am even drinkin' the stuff. And if working with dysfunctional equipment is hard, we head today to Social Security offices to try to "do something" with Medicare et al. I start in 10 days and still no card or such; Teresa does not receive SS yet but starts Medicare next month so a real challenge in their red-tape bureaucracy. Was thinking, "At least the parking won't be croweded since the Post Office (share Federal building space) is closed today." Then it dawns on this coffee-starved brain that the SSA would be closed as well. Duh. Mondays. Going to be a long day . .
Arguing politics on the Internet. I've asserted that the Republican Party as it currently exists does not believe government is capable of addressing and correcting social and economic problems. For evidence, I've cited things like Rick Scott's stated desire to eliminate the EPA and the Department of Education, the various obstructionism over the so-called "fiscal cliff", the attempts to privatize Social Security and the Post Office, and various other examples. Is my assertion an unfair categorization of their political philosophy?
Article 1, section 8 of the United States Constitution defines the Powers of Congress including the establishment of Post Offices and Post Roads. The purpose of the Post Office was and still is to facilitate interstate communication. Even in these modern times of instant electronic communication, the United States Postal Service provides inexpensive, efficient delivery of mail that includes everything from Social Security checks to your order from Amazon to completing the routes that FedEx, UPS and other shipping companies hand over to them. The Post Office is everywhere. It’s in the tiniest, most remote town in Alaska to the bustling streets of New York City. It is an American institution, iconic if you will, and it is in severe danger of becoming only a memory. Why? Because Republicans in the lame duck session of the 2006 Congress passed a law that effectively gave the Post Office a terminal disease and we are now seeing the end stages of that disease. It isn’t over yet but the end is in sight. That ...
Congratulation to President Obama’s for his successful reelection to the position of President of the United States. By being reelected, it has guaranteed the implantation of Obama Care, also known as the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. You remember the bill that contained over 2600 pages that nobody read. The bill that then House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi said, “We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” Well the bill has been passed and we are now finding out what is in it and according to many, some of which are in the medical profession, are saying it’s confusing and may take longer than anticipated to implement. Additionally the cost of financing the legislation is starting to spiral. Once again, when Government takes control of an operation it destroys it with an archaistic bureaucracy. This level of incompetency has been shown time and time again. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Post Office, Education, Welfare, FEMA and others are weighed down with ...
We need to learn these things before the gop privatize everything. Just like Bain and others like that. Rack up debt..borrow from the retirement and then go belly up. Same with Twinkie. Under Reagan the borrowing from Social Security began. He borrowed tons. Not too many people know about this but maybe..just maybe people need to learn. That is what happened to the Post Office too. So I guess to the gop..borrow and then shut it down so no one finds out?
America, hand these over to your government. We know much better how to spend your money compared to you. Just look at how well we've done with the Post Office, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, Fannie Mae, Freddy Mac, etc. etc. etc. If you think we sucked at the management and execution of those ventures, stand by for Obama Care!
Worth re-posting. FYI- Romney's "5 studies" supporting his tax theories DO NOT EXIST! Two of the five are NOT studies, they are magazine articles, (one was written by a Romney staffer,) and two of the "studies" cherry picked and fudged numbers to get Romney's desired results. He wants American women to be saddled with unwanted pregnancies. He wants our poor and elderly thrown into the streets, with no safety net of any kind. (Maybe he knows of a way to make money off of homeless people.) He thinks that "privatizing", or adding a layer of management stressing profits over service would add value to our Post Office, our prisons, our railroads, our air travel safety board, our schools, Medicaire, and Social Security. He fixed the Salt Lake City Olympics by taking government MONEY. He was a one term Governor of Massachusetts whose state wants nothing to do with him, And he is a businessman. The last two businessmen we elected were G.W. Bush, who is responsible for our current financial mess, and Herbert Hoove ...
Government Health Care... All the Efficiency of the Post Office, The Sustainability of Social Security, and the Compassion of the Internal Revenue Service rolled into one... are you sure that's a good idea?

I just want to thank all of the people who built our roads and bridges (truck drivers, architectural engineers, civil engineers, pavers, flaggers, welders, on and on and on). It was those hard working people who built our roads and bridges with our own taxpaper dollars. The Government did NOT build them. The only thing they did was stole our taxpayer dollars that funded these projects. Government can't even run our post office, AMTRAK, Social Security. Now they want to run our healthcare. He's your President. I didn't vote for that moron.

.Do you believe that cutting Medicare, Social Security, the Post Office, Food Stamps will help stimulate the economy?
Richard Mourdock interview after his win: He says he not afraid of making tough decisions about entitlements and programs, such as cutting Social Security, Medicare, the Post Office... the post office? Doesn't he know taxes aren't used for funding the Post Office? Social Security? That comes from money workers have contributed from their incomes that has been raided for years by Congress to pay for some of their pet projects. He says this will free up "growth" in the Business sector and who will be buying? Not the unemployed, not the low income from all the cut programs and jobs associated with the programs. We actually elect these dummies to govern us.
San Diego has Darrell Issa, he's got 'manly' war on women Health Care, America's Post Office, Medicare, Social Security -can't we do better?
So first Social Security goes broke and then the Post Office. What does history say will happen when government takes over healthcare?
you work to dismantle Post Office, Social Security, Medicare & other institutions we depend on, while waving the flag
