‘The Ides of Trump’ campaign could be a bonanza for the U.S. Postal Service[Click]The Ides of Trump: 4,000-plus postcards written at event hosted by Palo Alto woman[Click] Oh, my!—Alan
https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/wp/2017/03/16/why-is-the-trump-presidency-such-a-rolling-disaster/?utm_term=.894aa31121abFrom the article:"Abysmal management. Trump was only the latest in a long line of political figures who argued that if someone from outside politics took over the government, he’d whip it into shape with his business savvy and management expertise. The result has been the most chaotic and incompetent White House anyone can remember. As Politico reported Wednesday, “A culture of paranoia is consuming the Trump administration, with staffers increasingly preoccupied with perceived enemies — inside their own government,” creating “an environment of fear that has hamstrung the routine functioning of the executive branch.”Almost no one at the top levels of the Trump administration has experience in government, which not surprisingly has made everything more difficult as they bumble around trying to figure out how things work. Whether because of their own indifference to governing or the inability to find anyone willing to work for Trump, the administration hasn’t even nominated people to fill more than 500 of the 553 key positions requiring Senate confirmation, leaving agencies across the government barely able to function. If this is what Trump considers a “fine-tuned machine,” imagine what it would look like if it weren’t running so smoothly."
In a word: Disaster.Who could have predicted it?Oh wait, Bernie did. At least five times a day I gave reason to reflect on how different America would be if Bernie were President.The Democratic Party has past its prime, and the Republicans are in disarray. Wouldn't this be a good time to add a string Progressive Party and a People's Party, etc.?
listener, my master is an exact copy of the pink postcard you put up. When I say "master copy" I just mean that once I have it on paper or card stock I can print multiples.I doubt that the media will cover the results of the postcards, i.e., who saw them? What impact did they have? I don't expect Cheetolini to ever see them - his aides would know they would set him off so I'm sure they'd make sure none get to him, but I'd love to hear about the people who deliver the mail and what they thought.
It will be interesting to see if the Sunday morning shows pick it up.
I expect that the mail carriers will comment publicly, Susan. Trumplanders? No. Mainstream media? They *might* pick it up from Mother Jones or Facebook or Twitter. Meanwhile, here's an item which I shall keep a copy of to enclose in the reply envelope the next time the DNC comes begging me for money. Probably useless to send a copy to my US Senators, but I just might anyway.—AlanEveryone loves Bernie Sanders. Except, it seems, the Democratic party[Click] “A new poll found he is the most popular politician in America. But instead of embracing his message, establishment Democrats continue to resist him.”
I sent an inquiry/heads-up to Mother Jones.Alan
Well done, Alan!
