No shame.  USPS can't handle it, but no money for USPS.  Also GOP forced USPS to fund retirement benefits for future workers who haven't been born yet.  No other organization has to do that.

Trump says the USPS is too poorly funded to handle mail-in voting — while opposing additional funding for it

  • President Donald Trump told reporters Wednesday that the US Postal Service did not have the funds to cope with increased mail-in voting.
  • "They don't have the money to do the universal mail-in voting. So therefore, they can't do it, I guess," Trump said.
  • There are proposals to better fund the service, but they are being blocked by Republicans in Congress. Trump attacked Democrats for seeking more money for the USPS.
  • Trump again claimed mail-in votes were vulnerable to mass fraud, a concern election officials say is groundless.
  • Democrats have accused the president of seeking to delegitimize an expected surge of mail-in ballots in a bid to retain power.

Hilarious.  Complains about the USPS not being to handle it but won’t give it additional funds.  Maybe he would if the workers promised to support his campaign like the federal money he “finds” for those that donated to his campaign.

Thing is, they could "fix" things by either throwing money or by removing their insane requirement to fund retirement benefits for the next 75 years.  The USPS is forced to fund benefits for workers they haven't even hired yet.  Future workers who are currently in diapers.  Future workers that haven't been born yet.

Its mind boggling that so many Americans are just fine with this. Steve Bannon knew just how easily this could be done. Guys an evil genius.

Drumpf takes care of something only he was concerned about:

https://www.msn.com/en-ca/news/other/trump-changing-u-s-showerhead-rules-after-complaining-about-his-hair/ar-BB17VxnI?ocid=msedgdhp

 

With the U.S. in the grips of a deadly coronavirus pandemic and only three months away from a pivotal election, President Donald Trump is flexing his lawmaking powers to address a personal pet peeve: showerheads.

The Trump administration proposed new rules this week that would nix water-saving measures and increase the pressure of showerheads produced in the U.S.

The proposal comes one month after the president griped at a press conference about washing his hair, saying that the water doesn't come out fast enough from his showerhead.

"So what do you do? You just stand there longer or you take a shower longer?" he said on July 16. "Because my hair — I don't know about you, but it has to be perfect."

Trump has rarely been photographed with his signature coif out of place. His few bad hair days appear to have been caused by wind, not showers.

The president has also complained in the past about water-saving standards around sinks and toilets. In December, for example, he described a titanic struggle to flush a toilet, without providing specifics.

"People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once," Trump claimed during a meeting with small business leaders at the White House.

It's unclear who he was referring to, or what they were trying to flush.

The existing showerhead standard requires each one to pour out no more than 9.4 litres (2.5 gallons) per minute total, regardless of how many nozzles it has. That rule was imposed in 1992 during George H.W. Bush's presidency and later tweaked under Barack Obama to apply to heads with multiple nozzles.

The Trump administration's proposal would allow 9.4 litres of water to gush out of each nozzle, rather than from the entire showerhead.

The Trump administration's Energy Department also proposed easier standards on clothes washers. The Trump administration says its regulatory rollbacks save average American households $3,100 a year. However, critics say the change would boost homeowners' water bills due to the increased flow.

An Energy Department spokesperson said the changes are about "allowing Americans — not Washington bureaucrats — to choose what kind of showerheads they have in their homes."

Conservation groups have described the changes as unnecessary and wasteful, particularly given the droughts seen along the U.S. West Coast in recent years.

Andrew deLaski, executive director of the Appliance Standards Awareness Project, said the change would be a loss for energy conservation efforts.

He told The Associated Press that with four or five shower nozzles, "you could have 10, 15 gallons per minute power out of the showerhead, literally washing you out of the bathroom."

DeLaski and officials at Consumer Reports said there’s been no public outcry or need for change. The Department of Energy’s own database of 12,499 showerheads showed 74 per cent of them use 7.6 litres (two gallons) or less water per minute, which is 20 per cent less than the federal standard.

“Frankly, it’s silly,” deLaski said. “The country faces serious problems. We’ve got a pandemic, serious long-term drought throughout much of the West. We’ve got global climate change. Showerheads aren’t one of our problems.”

    • President Donald Trump told Fox Business on Thursday morning that he would block additional funding and election assistance for the US Postal Service to sabotage mail-in voting.
    • On Wednesday and Thursday, Trump said he would not sign off on any relief bill that includes emergency federal funds for the USPS and more money to process election-related mail.
    • "They want $25 billion — billion — for the post office. Now they need that money in order to have the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots," Trump said on Thursday, adding, "But if they don't get those two items, that means you can't have universal mail-in voting."
    • Under Postmaster General Louis DeJoy, the cash-strapped USPS has implemented cost-cutting measures that experts say could harm the delivery of election-related mail.

I have no doubt that Melania requested a stronger shower head.

The US says "No thanks" to an offer of help with a Covid 19 vaccine from the Russians.....

 

https://www.cnn.com/2020/08/13/europe/russia-us-coronavirus-vaccine/index.html

 

Quote

 

Russian officials in Moscow tell CNN they have offered "unprecedented cooperation" with Operation Warp Speed (OWS), the US multi-agency body set up to accelerate access to effective Covid-19 vaccines and treatments.

But the officials told CNN that the "US is not currently open" to the Russian medical advances.
 
"There is a general sense of mistrust of Russia on the American side and we believe that technologies -- including vaccine, testing and treatments -- are not being adopted in US because of that mistrust," one senior Russian official told CNN.

 

In this case, I don't blame the Americans...
 
....I have it on good authority that anyone who gets a Russian vaccine has an immediate and irresistible urge to light up a smoke and drink an entire bottle of vodka.....and before you know it, they'll be listening to Prokofiev and eating perogies on Thanksgiving too....
 
You Yanks are better off with the microchips.

He's intentionally holding up pandemic relief so that he can block USPS funding (which is needed because the GOP passed a law to decimate them) to mess with the election.

 

Authoritarian. America is way too close to losing it's freedom.
