“DeJoy still needs to be fired” ?

More like marched before the Nuremberg style trial that brings Trump, his appointees, Moscow Mitch and the organized crime syndicate disguised as Congressional Republicans to justice. Unless this trial is at the top of Biden’s agenda in January there is no hope for reversing US fascism that has been rapidly advancing for more than four decades.

“A spokesperson for the USPS told CBS MoneyWatch that DeJoy has not been involved with any dealings or contracts related to XPO (DeJoy’s logistics company).”

" ‘The Postal Service is confident that the inspector general’s ongoing review of this process will confirm the postmaster’s full compliance with ethics laws and regulations,’ the spokesperson said in a statement."

If that’s true, then I’d like to know why portions of the USPS Inspector General’s report on the impact of DeJoy’s changes to the service have been redacted.

Every time a “progressive” uses the term Moscow Mitch, the desiccated corpse of Joe McCarthy gets an erection.

I guess I am deft but " CBS News Friday that the Postal Service “will pay XPO $3.3 million annually to manage its route between the two cities, which are roughly 700 miles apart.”

What are the two cities and exactly what does XPO do? Are they like private military contractors who do the work that soldiers use to do and we over pay them? There are 1600 other private contractors? what the hell?

100:1 says if Biden wins, Joe will say: " WE NEED TO LOOK FORWARD AND HEAL THE COUNTRY".

Go straight to jail, do not pass go, do not collect $5,000,000.

We’re seeing all this last minute torching and looting of the country by the most dangerous organization in the world, there’s no way that there’s not a grand finale of destructive proportions coming the day after the election until January 20th if the republicans lose. Biden had better hire a team of pit bulls for his AG and DOJ if he wins, cause they’re going to need em’.

That’s a strong possibility. Wall Street called Bernie the most dangerous person for good reason. Ya don’t hear any such talk like that about Biden. And that’s a big worry. Kick the can down the road Joe.

“Reminder that Louis DeJoy still needs to be fired”.

No, it’s a reminder he still needs to be arrested and charged with the many felonies he has earned.
When is this going to happen?

Because Bernie is an anathema to Wall Street; while Biden is a Wall Street Stooge. The DNC is so corrupt that they chose the Biden/Harris ticket long before the so-called democratic debates all the time pretending Bernie had a chance for their nomination for POTUS.

Firing would do —if they use a big enough cannon.

Republicans remind me of pedophiles in this way. They believe what they do is perfectly alright and are stunned that normal people disagree.

Wait–WHAT? Dosen’t this mean essentially that the Postmaster General just hired himself for $5 mil at the taxpayers’ expense?

This means that Bernie…?

Well, this is par for the course. Doesn’t matter whether one is a D or R, they all do it. BTW, all those $500k speeches, etc, the Clintons (and this began in earnest w/the Clintons), Obamas, and even Biden did, they’re payback. The Ds give 45 minute half a million $$$ speeches and the Rs have the Kochs, et al.

BTW how is it that the Bidens only paid $17k in property taxes last year on homes valued excess of $3-7.5 million? Yet, after being booted from the VP Naval Observatory the Bidens chose to become renters in McLean, VA, at the meager sum of $20,000/Month in a home owned by none other than a Venture Capitalist. Feels your pain, middle class Joe and his school teacher wife are paying $240,000 in rent each year.

So long as the elitist traitor Pelosi retains power nothing will change. She’s not the number one trump enabler on the planet for no reason.

I guess what’s somewhat surprising is that ‘they’ don’t even attempt to hide the corruption as ‘they’ did in the past. It’s always been there just more hidden. And we lowly citizens are powerless to do anything to stop it. And don’t kid yourselves both wings of the corporate parties are as corrupt as all hell. The USPS has now also been infected with the rot of late stage capitalism. It will only worsen until the big collapse, inevitable as all Empires do fall. Screw them all.

COME ON, COME ON. Bring on the RICO ACT.

The demo’s also. They are both corrupt as all hell and always have been too.
