  • Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

  • Im an agronomy major in Canada and Post Canada (nation post, equivalent to USPS) has chicks in the mail everyday. We have few hatcheries. All they do is incubate the eggs and the day the chicks are born they vaccinate them, box them up and hop! they go in the truck and are delivered to farms all over. I visited the hatchery that produces over 50% of the poultry in my province and Post Canada trucks are in their driveway at 6 every morning ready to deliver. That's when I understood how it was legal and necessary to allow this still.

It took 4 days to go from NC to Jersey City, NJ. then sent to Metro NY, set for 2 days the sent back to NJ, Newark. Stay in Newark for 2 days and now it's moving to somewhere. What the hell is going on? This is not the first time this has happen.

Why not AM and PM service with letter carriers sorting and processing the AM run and then going home and the second shift delivering the PM run? The next shift sorts and processes and the first shift delivers the mail and the fourth shift works postal locations. Round the clock. 😒

  • I worked for USPS doing data entry about 5 years ago and found out how much of a mess it was then. They kept trying to recruit mail carriers but no one wanted to sell their soul and work 60-80 hours a week for not even 40 hours of pay. They are overworked and money is extremely mismanaged. They brag way too much about not using tax dollars since 1980. It's really so sad because if they went under, we'd all be fucked. People don't know all the services that they actually perform.

  • The Postal Service is a complete and utter failure because they promote UNQUALIFIED people to management positions. They bully and make their workers lives (especially Letter Carriers) miserable. They cannot retain CCA's because they made the Letter Carrier job too overwhelming for new hires. They are so stupid and arrogant, they have no clue how to run a business. Why on Earth would a "delivery" business make the "delivery" job a task so insurmountable with overburdened routes and complicated work procedures? That's the REAL reason you are not getting your mail.
