Post Office Jobs vs Corporate profits 18.Apr.2012 07:31

checksinthemail

Our Post office is a National Treasure that has been with us since before our constitution. The private companies want to steal the post office because they know it is profitable. Gee for over two hundred years the post office has been protecting and delivering mail to the American public and they only charge .47 cents--it is a guaranteed prices will go up and jobs will be lost if privatized. Daryl issa is a scum sucking corporate whore will sell off his mother--This f(**^% makes more than any other congress person and he wrote his phd thesis on how to destroy the post office and than George dickhead war criminal bush put him on the postal board. This is not a revenue problem but systematic deconstruction of the middle class and public jobs. This is an out right attack from corporate thieves that want to control, profit and let the king and queen read your mail--again--
The second amendment gives us the right to bare arms and our postal service is worth fighting for.
Get in the street issa you scum sucking traitor to the American people. Thank you postal workers for your hard work and dedication to our communities--Private companies will not do safety checks on seniors or provide a community service-- Public jobs mean healthy communities and a US Postal service means your mail is unread and delivered on time --Thank You US Postal workers for over two hundred years of dedication and service to the American People--Something corporate thieves and issa care nothing about.
