Rush newsletter, Romney sign, FreedomWorks mailing ruined "accidently" by USPS in last 3 weeks
USPS my mailboxvvbvvv | 8/13/12

Anyone else experience repeated destruction of your conservative mailings?

I bought a sign at Romney's web site, and when it arrived, the packaging was messed up along with a note of "apology" from the USPS.

A week or so later, my Limbaugh newsletter came, shredded up...still readable, but clearly mangled. No apology.

Today, a mailing from FreedomWorks. The large envelope ripped open at the top, torn up. No apology.

Mailings from different regions, all conservative and rather large items, all mucked up.

Coincidence? I don't think so.

They should apologize for raping taxpayers.

I apologize for my harsh rhetoric.

It sounds like it must be either your local post office, or a nearby distribution center.

ANY State-Run-Media, or Union-run Government function are anti-Constitution and anti-Christian and anti-Conservative.

It is not in conformance to their Agenda, which is to Rule a Socialist Nation, which we are nearly arriving at. Removal of ALL Public Unions should be a plank in the GOP Platform, but it cannot be, as they have to pander for Government-Unionist votes.....good luck with that (you've got as much chance of Unionized Government "workers" voting Republican, as you do for Blacks to voter (R).)

Document your findings and present them to the postmaster at your local post office. You may or may not get satisfaction, but the documentation process, and proving that you followed the chain of command is key to getting satisfaction from monolithic organizations.

Report this to the US Post Office Inspector General’s office. Believe it or not they are DAMN Good.

The USPS accidentally delivered a mailing intended for USPS union members and it was pretty grim reading in terms of anti-taxpayer sentiment and focus on politics and maintaining the cushy status quo.

Don’t over-react. The poor “workers at the postal “service” are upset that the postal service may go belly-up and they may loose their seat on the gravy train...that’s all. They are frustrated.

That's why they want to raise the rates.

Who knew! And we all thought it was excessive then the Syrian Islamists threw the bodies of postal workers off the roof.

They are repulsed at the destruction of the concept that government jobs may no longer mean forever jobs. And then forever pensions and benefits.

Contact Postal Inspectors directly. Do NOT go through local Postmaster or your carrier! Document everything. Save everything. Inspectors will want to see it. Assuming they do their job. They take such things seriously. Really, they do...

I received a Romney photograph that was clearly labeled as “Photograph - Do not bend”; and it was bent in half.

OTOH, I get all kinds of other stuff they mutilate - catalogs, flyers, etc...

They might just be a bunch of screw-ups. I know I get a lot of mail with stamps I'm able to reuse.

Not surprisingly the USPS has a disproportionate number of D voters "employed".

If they thought you ate your mail, you can bet they'd spit on it.

Yes, though it's not a "conventional" mailing. A friend of mine collects newspaper clippings from my hometown paper and forwards them in sealed manila envelopes, once every two to three months.

Back in '09, he found some very uncomplimentary pictures of Obama, Reid and Pelosi, printed up a batch and always decorates the back of the envelope with one of each - securely taped in place all around the edges. Every time, the USPS tears off the Obama pic but leaves Harry and Nancy in place.

I'm sure that each mailing results in another red flag next to both our names on "the list", but I'm probably on there too many times to care any more.

I have a terrible local post office.

I once had a subscription to Vogue and I got exactly one copy out of a year’s subscription.

When my child was in college, they opened every envelope that said “Financial Aid Office”—I guess they thought checks, or maybe even cash, come through the mail.

One holiday season, they took all my invitations. I thought it was to crash parties and events, but I later found out that one guy was dumping what he figured were Christmas cards, to make his job easier.

Then there was the fat envelope from my father that never arrived. I guess they thougt that was cash. It wasn’t.

I agree that the Postal Inspector’s Office is great. They were on my local post office’s case until 9/11 came along, when they got too busy with the anthrax threat.

Clue: Never put your name on a letter that is going to someone in your family with the same name. I have started just putting my apartment number and street address and everything has been going fine. They see family to family and their little fingers start to itch.

The last time I contacted a Postal Inspector I got the distinct impression that I was speaking with a less motivated, less sympathetic employee of the DMV who could hot have given less of a rat's patootie. Unless you are on to the next Unabomber they just want to drink their coffee and collect their pension.

I remember the days when "forever jobs" was the reward for lower-paying civil service jobs relative to the private sector, where there was higher pay but risk of termination.

Nowadays, government jobs are sucking the life out of the private sector by increasing the number of government jobs, which reduces the available workforce for private sector jobs, which require more taxes to pay for the government jobs, which reduces the disposable income of private sector workers, which reduces profits in the private sector, which reduces the workforce in the private sector...

Just for general info. I’ve been an employee of the Postal Service for nearly 25 years. All of my three children have been raised in the same house that we bought 19 years ago. One in college, Two on the way. To say that I am proud just doesn’t cut it. I know many friends through the years who were making more, spending more, and living higher on the hog than I could even consider. My budget didn’t allow it. So while you may think we are overpaid for what we do, when the hard times came, (and they’re here for a while), my friends have lost homes, pulled kids from private schools, filed bankruptcy, and otherwise suffered calamity of all sorts.But the USPS never missed a day of delivering the mail, nor did they outsource our jobs to other countries like dems and repubs alike have facilitated. They kept on working. You can bitch about your mail being slow, or damaged, or missing and there will be a human to report it to. That human might just be a conservative, like myself. There are many conservatives in the USPS. There are even may constitutionalists, like myself. We talk and debate about the future of this country because we love this country. The fact is that the constitution specifically provides for the government to do this particular thing, deliver mail, unlike so many other things that the government is doing which are criminal and unconstitutional. So I urge you to resist the temptation to generalize. Your mail may have been intentionally damaged by some ***hole, or it might not have, but those kinds of people are in every walk of life. Just deal with it without slandering an entire group of people who do their jobs well and with care.

“Just deal with it without slandering an entire group of people who do their jobs well and with care.”

Great post,dwn.
My wife works for the federal government,too. She’s been with Veteran’s Affairs Canada for over 20 years. Loves her job. She has always gone the “extra mile” for Vets with their claims for disability pensions, mostly because she can feel empathy for them. I couldn’t count how many personal “thank you’s” she has received from Vets or their survivors who had given up on any kind of compensation until she took over their cases. Yeah, there are a few in her position who do the job with indifference, but there are also some “gems”. Like I said, great post.

Did not slander anyone ...simple advice on dealing with bad service. I really don’t have many problems with the post office because I rarely use it from my end and get mostly junk mail from the other end. I really would not miss it if they went to every other day service.

I am glad there are good people like you working there...I am just suspicious that three obvious mailings of mine have been damaged.

I hope you understand.
