Trump’s actions this past week against the Post Office have been swift and decisive. He moved like a thief in the night to remove mail boxes, speed mail sorting machines, and delaying any monies needed.
Except, Trump did not make the moves in the dark of the night. He had them performed in the light of day.
Like screw you! I am the King! Oops, the President!
Trump moved openly and swiftly. Brought to mind Hitler’s blitzkrieg when he invaded Poland. Also similar, the Night of the Long Knives when Hitler attacked Germany’s Catholic Church.
Trump is desperate to win and does not care what the American people think as to how he accomplishes his goal. I believe he errs this time. The people do care. Democrats and Republicans. Farmers. The elderly.
The first thing Trump’s Post Office actions accomplished was to give the Democrats an additional campaign issue. The American people consider Trump’s moves an assault on the needs of citizens who rely on daily deliveries.
Trump tells us all type things are wrong with the Post Office. If so, the American people were neither aware nor experiencing any deficiencies. Pew Research in an April study reported 91 percent approved the work of the Post Office.
Removing mail boxes a simple move that my mind however fails to understand. I have always believed there are not enough mail boxes. Whether I was living in Utica or Key West. Better to use the Post Office itself. In most instances also meant a 24 hour improvement in delivery time.
Trump hit Oregon, Montana, Indiana and Manhattan in the first round of mail box removals. Yesterday, it was announced Trump had put a stop to the removals.
Trump also has had speed mail sorting machines removed. These machines routinely process millions of pieces of mail a day. His obvious game to slow down mail processing which would cause havoc with mail in ballots.
The man destroys. Hopefully in this instance, the clamor of the American people will stop him.
Today another important one in American history. It was on this day in 1969 that legendary Woodstock opened in Bethel, New York.
Two prominent Key West musical talents were there. Fifty one years ago. Larry Smith and Christine Cordone. What an experience it had to have been!
Ernest Hemingway had that special touch of genius. He could see what others could not. He was able to convey his observations in writing.
Following is a yesterday Hemingway quote that fits Trump today. Recognizes a difference between the two men: “I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.”
Consider these words…..Kamala Harris is the future, so Mike Pence may well be history.
Respectfully, the President is a whore. A manipulator. He is stacking his briefings.
Reporters very favorable to him are invited to attend the briefings. The President knows they are there, who they are, and what questions they will ask. The reporters are from media outlets most have never heard. Far right publications. Like One America Hears and The Epoch Times.
Reporters who throw “softball questions” to the President.
May Johnson does not let grass grow under her feet!
May wrote on her diary pages for 8/15/1856 and 8/16/1856 her dancing with many boys at La Brisa. Almost a daily thing.
May has a boy friend. Ernesto, I think. He works in Miami. Rarely visits Key West. The two keep in contact by letter writing. The problem being the letters are few and far between. Though May writes to Ernesto a bit more than he responds.
I assume Ernesto is dancing with the ladies in Miami. Apparently an “understanding” exists between the two.
Enjoy your Sunday!
