House Passes $25 Billion Post Office Bail-Out Even Though Postage Is Up 17% Since 2016 And There Will Be A Holiday Surcharge In 2020 For First Time Ever, Trump Lies In Rage Tweet

As usual, Trump lies, yet again, now in saying that post office representatives said they “DO NOT NEED THE MONEY”, when on August 14th…

(by Half Dollar) This USPS debacle is odd, to say the least.

It almost feels like a set-up to take any and all voting related tasks away from the post office entirely, does it not?

As if the votes were somehow counted in the way the sheeple think they are counted.

But I digress.

The House may not be able to pass another round of Economic Impact Payments for Joe Deplorable, but by golly, they’ll pass other bail-outs to play partisan politics!

Or so the Circus Side Show narrative goes.

From Bloomberg:

The House on Saturday passed a bill aimed at rolling back service cuts at the U.S. Postal Service that Democrats say could harm the ability of Americans to vote by mail in the November presidential election that’s being shadowed by the coronavirus pandemic.

The “Delivering for America” measure, which would allocate an additional $25 billion for the Postal Service, had limited Republican support. It passed 257 to 150, with 26 GOP members voting yes.

Needless to say, Trump is livid:

The post office doesn’t need money?

Then why in the heck has postage gone up over 17%, since 2016?

Furthermore, yet again, Trump is a BOLD-FACED LIAR.

Because on August 14, the post office did in fact say they need the money.

But don’t take ‘Ol Half Dollar’s word for it, read it straight from the US post office’s website itself:

Now, it is true in that I may just be some two-bit wannabe writer with a crappy, useless Deans’ List BA degree in language from the nation’s first public university, but I’m pretty sure that “providing the agency with much needed revenue” is the same thing as saying they freakin’ need the money!

Ok, “Hey Half Dollar, you big dufus – retail customers are not affected!”.

Oh, yeah.

Because e-commerce businesses surely can’t figure out how to pass on the cost of increased postage to their customers.

Here’s the thing: The Post Office gets its money from We the People, which isn’t really money anymore but debt-based fiat currency dependent on unsustainable, exponential growth, and as such, when the the post office needs to raise rates, well, that’s kind of like a double whammy in the sense that the post office is funded by We the People on the back end, and on the front end they’re going to charge We the People even more?

So they need to pull off a cheap parlor trick to make it seem like the post office is only raising rates on those greedy corporations out there, and, as usual, the sheeple are oblivious.

Regardless, isn’t it odd what our elected “leaders’ can’t agree on?

Well, it’s not really odd if you understand why they just can’t figure out how to give Joe Deplorable another bail-out:

Contrary to popular belief, the Deplorables are hard working, and many of them are smart too, and I’m one of them, well, a Deplorable anyway, the hard working part is debatable, and I’m just about smart enough to be an idiot, but either way, when just a small percentage of the “free money” goes into real money as savings, that’s a little bit too much for the cartel to handle right now, so when they’re done smashing and silver begins rising again, the “deal” will be struck, only, by that time, Joe Deplorable will not be able to save as much money as he otherwise could have.

In other words, if you want to know when the stimulus checks are coming, then look to gold & silver prices, because when the dreaded “correction” is over and prices begin to rally again, that’s when the roar of the helicopters will be heard overhead.
