Take back OUR POST OFFICES – NOW!
I found this on my friend Roger’s facebook.
I took time from writing THE MOST RADICAL NEWSPAPER in the history of the Emerald Valley, and attended the second Eugene OCCUPY meeting. I could read their minds.
“Oh look. This dude is doing Ken Kesey. Is he a wanna-be Prankster? Let’s run him by Ken Babbs the ‘New King of Clowns’ ‘
NO JUSTICE – NO PEACE!
Reinvent OCCUPY and go after the world oil supply that is very vulnerable. Demand JUSTICE for my peer, reporter, Khashoggi. Go to the Saudi embassy and demand to talk to THE PRINCESS OF ARAB CULTURE! Demand Saudi Arabia pressure Turkey to lay off the Kurds! Demand a homeland for the Kurds or we will make sure the price of a drum of oil goes down to ZERO! Put your murderers on trial – NOW!

“If we’re lucky enough to see the derangements of the current era pass—such as the Trump administration and its farcical response to a once-in-a-century pandemic—the stewards of the next phase in American life have an awesome task ahead of them. They’ll need to author a new economic recovery and reboot the federal government; more likely than not, they’ll also need to find a way to restore the American people’s lost faith in institutions and forge a more equitable future. Simple action items are in short supply, but here’s one: a broad reimagining of the U.S. Postal Service.
USPS officials have beseeched lawmakers for a bailout during the pandemic, raising concerns that the agency could be insolvent by the autumn. In April, the White House put the kibosh on $13 billion worth of sustenance, even as it let far less worthy corporate interests fatten themselves on the Covid-19 bailout teat. (A bipartisan group of House lawmakers is even seeking to cut in predatory payday lenders on the bailout deal, in an apparent attempt to win the Nobel Prize for bottom-feeding.) Donald Trump has referred to the USPS as a joke and demanded, as a precondition for aid, that it charge Amazon higher rates—the better to stick it to its founder, Jeff Bezos, whose Washington Post, he believes, has been out to get him from the start.
Bezos can weather the collapse of the Postal Service, but the average American can’t. Right now, for hundreds of thousands strewn across the nation’s expanse, the Postal Service is their last real connection to their government. The loss of this vital intersection will only add to the isolation that so many people needlessly experience. There are already too many communities living as if they resided on a remote archipelago, rather than in a unified nation.
But we shouldn’t stop at merely providing the USPS with the $89 billion it has asked for. Rather, this is a moment when we can revitalize the agency and use it to restore our faith in America. The good old post office doesn’t have to simply be the place where we send letters. For millions of unbanked Americans, it can be a place where checks are cashed, bills paid, and loans provided. This isn’t a pie-in-the-sky plan. From 1911 to 1967, post offices were the venue for postal banking and a vital lifeline for those hit by the Great Depression; it can serve these needs again. Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Kirsten Gillibrand have all backed postal banking.
The Saudi family are a tribe. Our President is doing public relations for a tribe, because, his family is a tribe. Trump needs to be impeached for breaking the Emoluments Clause. If President Obama did these things, the Christian-right would accuse him of selling our Democracy to the Saudi family.
“The Trump International Hotel recently took in about $270,000 in payments tied to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia as the country fights to roll back a U.S. terrorism law, according to newly filed lobbying reports. The spending, which covered lodging, catering and parking expenses, was disclosed in Justice Department filings last week by MSL Group Americas, a public relations firm. The filings detailed the work the firm engaged in between Oct. 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017 on behalf of the Saudis, Bahrain and other foreign governments.
In a statement Monday night, Trump Organization officials said they would donate any profits from the transactions at the end of the year.”
The Title of Nobility Clause is a provision in Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution, that prohibits the federal government from granting titles of nobility, and restricts members of the government from receiving gifts, emoluments, offices or titles from foreign states without the consent of the United States Congress. Also known as the Emoluments Clause, it was designed to shield the republican character of the United States against so-called “corrupting foreign influences.” This shield is reinforced by the corresponding prohibition on state titles of nobility in Article I, Section 10, and more generally by the Republican Guarantee Clause in Article IV, Section 4.
