Is DeJoy still hanging around with one foot out of the exit door of the U.S. Postal Service.

Why is DeJoy still in his role?

It is hilarious that the same people who want to get rid of anything that illustrates America's past atrocities are the very same people who are trying to get that very topic approved for grade school kids. CRT is just a theoretical match to what this exhibit is all about.

I hope you didn't pull a groin muscle while doing that stretch.

Scratch that. I hope you did.

Because if he is, it's because McConnell's Republican cartel hasn't approved President Biden's two nominations to replace the Board members who shoehorned DeJoy in that job in the first place at the behest of Donald Trump to disrupt the flow of mail in ballots.

The President doesn't have the authority to fire the Postmaster General. Only the Board members can do that.

Clambake is beyond reasoning. His whataboutism is a mental disease.

It's good to know they're at least trying to sanitize something.

USPS released this statement just a few hours ago:

"Regarding the Postal Service's decision to suspend operations at the Montpelier Station Post Office... this is a leased Postal Service-operated facility, which has one employee and operates four hours daily. This postal facility is co-located in a building that has been recognized as a historic site with a museum about segregation. There are two exterior doors to the museum, and signage above one door reads "Whites" while the other bears a sign "Colored." Information about this museum and its proximity to the Post Office was only recently brought to the attention of senior Postal Service management. Because the Post Office is co-located in the same building as the segregation museum, Postal Service management considered that some customers may associate the racially-based, segregated entrances with the current operations of the Post Office, and thereby draw negative associations between those operations and the painful legacy of discrimination and segregation that marked prior historical eras. Thus, Postal Service management elected to suspend the Montpelier Post Office with the intention of finding suitable alternative quarters in the community, or in the absence of any, to proceed with a discontinuance study if appropriate."

You'd think segregation would be something the Republicans would celebrate.

Reminds me of the obnoxious college hoaxes where someone put similar signs above drinking fountains to "bring attention" to an issue. It appears whoever runs that museum screwed their community out of a functioning post office.
