Cummings: Postal Service cuts would
hurt minority groups, single mothers

The Hill (DC), by Cameron Joseph

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/10/2013 4:43:29 AM

The U.S. Postal Service´s decision to eliminate Saturday delivery could disproportionally hurt minority groups, according to Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the ranking member on the House Oversight Committee. "You´re talking about just this reduction … from six days to five days will cut anywhere from 25,000 to 30,000 employees. And with regard to Asian, African-Americans, and Hispanics, they comprise about 40 percent of the Postal Service employees," Cummings told Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC Friday night. "So it´s logical to believe if they were to lose that 30,000 jobs, easily 40 percent of them would be African-Americans, Hispanics, and Asian-Americans."

Comments:
We poke fun at Cummings, but his thinking is simply a cruder version of how Attorney General Eric Holder seems to view the country.

My long term +50 yr old white postman was recently replaced with 2 young blacks. He did not retire... he was re-assigned as part time against his will.

No ammount of ´innovation´ is going to make people send more mail. We are 1/8 of the way into the 21st century. Things change. The only checks I write and send are gifts, like so many people. It´s over for the PO. As far as I´m concerned, they could go to Mon/Wed/Fri.

Cummings is from Md. as is Senator Mikulski who are both patron saints of federal workers.The PO isn´t serious about cutting expenses,cutting out Sat. delivery except for packages is a farce.If a person shows up to deliver one package,my guess is he´ll get paid for the whole day if not overtime on top.

Cummings is no stranger to playing the race card so this is just his MO.

At the end of the day there will be a bailout of the post office under the guise of minorities being hardest hit.

This is really no different than a family being a 1000 bucks a month short and cutting out pizza to solve the problem.

Elijah Cummings (D-Md.), the Islamo-Marxist Progressive buffoon waves his magic wand:

"Basically, what the Congress needs to do is do a comprehensive bill whereby we have what we call an innovation officer, which is my idea. And that person would keep the Post Office as cutting edge of innovation and bringing in new ways to of making money"

I think that Congress should mandate that all Post Office vehicles get 200 mpg by 2014 and that email be put directly under the control of the Post Office so they can charge a "stamp convenience fee" on every message equal to what we would pay if we physically sent a letter. These "cutting edge innovations" would solve all their problems.

One reason why across-the-agency salary reductions of 10 percent would be better.

(And 10 percent reduction in benefits)

Who ISN´T surprised at the magic words of "minority groups hardest hit"? Cummings must be afraid his own minority group will have to wait until Monday to get their welfare checks.

WHY are whites UNDER represented? According to the census, 72.4% of those employed by the Post Office..actually any federal workforce should be white.
(The United States Census Bureau defines White people as those "having origins in any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Africa. It includes people who reported “White” or wrote in entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Near Easterner, Arab, or Polish."[16] Whites constitute the majority of the U.S. population, with a total of 223,553,265 or 72.4% of the population in the 2010 United States Census.

The postal service has been notorious for avoiding any kind of efficiency programs. There are laws that do not let then study what is needed and then implement cost saving plans. The unions want dues payers, not less workers. The system is corrupt with kickbacks, etc. when people get promoted or pay increases. The bosses and unions are rolling in happy dollars from the mailers.

Wait a minute! If minorities are only 40%, that means whites are 60%! So who really gets hurt the most?

Besides, who cares about skin color, as long as the job gets done? (I know, democrats obsess over skin color.)

UPS and FEDEX are examples of much more efficient service, so I say privatize mail delivery and get government out of it!

Lately, our white mail delivery person has been replaced on many days by a black delivery person. When that happens our mail is frequently delivered to our neighbors and theirs to us. AND the box is left open by her.

I go into a Post Office maybe one or two times a year. I think that half of the staff cannot read. We are still getting mail addressed to the original owner of our home that moved thirteen years ago. I would be happy if we could opt for no junk mail delivery so that mail carriers do not have to work so hard. It goes from mail box to the recycle bin without even opening it. There is a lot of waste in this organization. Cut waste and you could cut costs by 40%.

Wow, he grasps the idea of percentages. But I "wonder why" the USPS has that high a proportion of minorities in the first place. Of course he´s not seriously saying that, in post-racial America, disproportionately more whites should be fired to protect minorities...

the psotal service has gone to great lengths to improve efficiency, from the use of barney, a purple colored huge mailing sorter device, to measuring the length of a postal delivery person´s stride.
The central problem right now is that congress, in a flight of fancy, told the postal service that pension plans had to be fully funded immediately - this is the only governmental entity that is required to do so.
The funds in question amount to about 8 bilion dollars, due right now.

I had to send a pkg overnite to a town that was 15 miles from a major US city. I went to the USPS to send the pkg. I was told that the pkg could not be delivered to that town overnite..it was TO FAR AWAY from the city. I had to send the pkg. by UPS. It arrived on time...and the UPS used the same roads that the USPS use. and the cost was 64 dollars...
privatize this USPS..but it wont happen, because Congress ´uses" the service....

There are multiple reasons why the post office should eliminate Saturday delivery. One is being that the mail processing is not there. Today people are using direct pay and e-mail which reduces the delivery of mail. Another is FEDEX and UPS. These two companies are able to ship cheaper. The post office screwed themselves by pandering to the union. People at the post office are being paid mega bucks to sit around (on call). It would not hurt me if they are reduced delivery to three days a week.

Here´s an experiment:
Go to any small-town post office that is under threat of closure. If you don´t know which ones they are, call your Congressman.
Purchase some stamps. The person (the only one there) who cheerfully and efficiently helps you is probably non-union.
Then go to the flagship post office in downtown (14th and L St NW) Washington DC.
Try to purchase some stamps. All the people who flagrantly refuse to help you are union.
Guess which post office will be closed. Guess which post office the USPS is afraid to touch.

Yes, the Postal Service has become the option of working welfare in the big cities. Our downtown plant that is on the way to closure had more that it´s fair share of drunks, no shows, disabled i.e. light or limited duty. Because some of these people are black & women there have been gross violations that would get anyone else fired. It was well known that 2 shift leaders would go down to the River Boat casino on postal time. They did not get fired. People abuse the Family Medical Leave Act - black and white - so much that they have to take leave w/o pay etc.

So we should never allow minorities to be hired in numbers disproportionate to their population. That way they would not be hurt disproportionately when laid off. What in the world are we doing hiring minorities in such disproportionate numbers anyway. I thought the government was an "equal opportunity employer"? Doesn´t look so to me. Oh. I see. That doesn´t apply to whites!

He is a devote race baiter and a hater of all things American, if the melanin is not dark enough you are his declared enemy. He judges everything by the pigment of your skin not the thought or consideration in your heart.

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
