New Deal Post Office For Sale

postmural postmural88postoff6protect3 protect4 protect7The old Eugene Post Office is up for sale. Inside are historic murrals that were rendered for the People of Eugene to give them a sence of Community and Culture. Thanks to the Privatizers that put the Tea Party Fakeriots in the streets to protect the very Rich, the world economy has been weakened, severely damaged!

“The downtown post office was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. It was designed by Gilbert Underwood, and it contains murals by Carl Morris, a friend of artists Mark Rothko and Robert Motherwell. The murals depict the local industries of lumbering and agriculture.”

The United States Constitution calls for a Government Post Office, and that roads be built to it so We the People may always have access to the Post Office. The Fakeriots claim our Founding Fathers never intended our Democracy to be an institution that cared about building roads, and building buildings for the common people to use and enjoy. They lied! They took over our Congress – employing lies!

“First the post office finds a buyer, then it notifies the community of the impending closure, and then it listens to what residents have to say.”

Our purchase of stamps is our investment in our Post Office! The Founding Fathers would be furious, put on war paint to learn rich capitalists stand to make a big profit by – our loss! In theory, these post offices belong to the people – and the roads that lead to them! They exist so the people can have access to their Government and give their Democratic Voice to a Democratic system. The Fakeriots claim to be taking us all back to the good old days – claiming it is the best thing that can happen to America! Well, what are the Real People and Patriots wainting for!

It’s time for all good people to occupy every closed U.S. Post Office in America, and use it as a Forum for the People, and create Trading Posts where folks can come in order to create a sound Economical System – from the ground up! If the Depression era can produce such a beautiful building, then let us also support President Barach Obama’s Make Work Program that will put thousands back to work repairing bridges that were also built druing the Depression. Let us write our President and ask his help in purchasing, and or, leasing these Post Offices so we can put people to work, get them back into the marketplace – now!

The Face of the Post Office: New Deal P.O. in Eugene, for sale
July 9, 2011

It’s the usual story. The Postal Service owns a beautiful downtown post office that’s been a thriving hub for decades. Then it moves most of the postal workers to another facility, a non-descript annex on the edge of town or in another city. After a few years the Postal Service says, “the building is much bigger than we need,” and it goes up for sale. When the citizens of the community learn that the post office is on the market, a Postal Service rep tells patrons, ““We want to maintain our retail presence in the area,” so perhaps we’ll be able to lease back some space in the building or in another nearby location.

That’s what happened in Eugene, Oregon, home to a 72-year-old landmark post office built by the New Deal. For 40 years it was the main processing center, but in 1979 the Postal Service moved most of the workers to a processing center in Springfield, and now the Postal Service has put the building up for sale. (Register-Guard)

Eugene Mayor Kitty Piercy wrote a letter to Eugene Postmaster Paul Bastinelli , saying the “signature post office is essential to the long-term growth and economic vitality of Eugene’s city center” and asking the Postal Service to discuss the fate of the post office with the community. Ron Anderson, the Portland-based USPS customer relations coordinator, said that’s not how it works. First the post office finds a buyer, then it notifies the community of the impending closure, and then it listens to what residents have to say.

The downtown post office was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. It was designed by Gilbert Underwood, and it contains murals by Carl Morris, a friend of artists Mark Rothko and Robert Motherwell. The murals depict the local industries of lumbering and agriculture.

If you’re an interested buyer, the post office is listed by Northland Realtors. The asking price is $2.5 million. Unless the city of Eugene can find a way to take over the building for public purposes, it will probably turn into a restaurant or offices for a private company. That would be too bad. As career postal employee Gary Jarvis told KVAL.com, moving out such a unique building will lower the postal service’s standing in the community. “That’s the face of the post office the community has come to know,” he said.

    On this day, October 24, 2014, I hereby declare all persons held in slavery in the Levant, free peoples! In the name of my illustrious ancestor, John Fremont, I declare war on all those who take slaves in the Levant. For the reason brave Kurdish Freedom Fighters are waging war against the slave masters known as ISIS, I declare they own a special citizenship that Americans in the North enjoyed, when they fought the traitors of the Confederacy for the freedom of the enslaved. I give all Kurdish fighters permission to use John Fremont’s flag when they go into battle.

    It was John Fremont, with the help his wife, Jessie Benton, who authored the first emancipation of slaves in America, thus, forcing the hand of Abraham Lincoln. Fremont was a co-founder of the Republican Party, who along with many foreigners known as Forty-Eighters, took up the cause that America should be an Abolitionist Nation. Fremont was the first Presidential Candidate for the party that would echo the ancient cry of Moses;

    “Let my people go!

    For the reason the roots of the Kurdish People can be traced to royal house of Queen Helena of Adiabene, who gifted the Temple at Jerusalem a golden Menorah – the very symbol of the Abolitionist God of the Jews that was taken into captivity by the Roman slave masters – as a fellow Nazarite, I declare the Kurdish People, Children of the New Covenant, that is the root of Judeo-Christianity, as well as Islam.

    For the reason the Kurdish People have stood up to the slave masters of ISIS, may they soon enjoy what God gave His Chosen Children when they came out of Egypt, a New and United Land, modeled after the America Democracy that came to be, when the Union was victorious over the Confederacy.

    May the bells of freedom ring out all over the world!

    Jon the Nazarite
