I heard about this little stunt that liberals were preparing to do on March 15, also known as the ‘Ides of March,’ the day that Julius Caesar was assassinated. Being one of the stupidest things I had ever heard of liberals doing, I felt sure that it would fizzle out before March 15. Evidently not, though. According to commondreams.org, the ‘Ides of Trump’ movement plans to mail at least 1 million postcards to President Donald Trump on the fifteenth to show the man, the media, and the politicians how vast their numbers are…to make it irrefutable that the president’s claim of wide support is a farce.
Anti-trumpsters are encouraged to write one or more postcards, addressed to the president at the White House, plus take pictures of the cards and post to social media. Participants are also encouraged to “write from the heart,” citing all of their issues with number 45: DAPL, women’s rights, racial discrimination, religious freedom, immigration, economic security, education, the environment, etc.
The desire of the people spear-heading this movement is to overwhelm Washington and bury the White House Post Office in pink slips, all informing President Trump that he is fired.
While I certainly believe in freedom of speech, freedom of expression, etc., and admit that these folks have every right to carry on this stupidity, what good is it going to do? These postcards, except for a token few, will not reach the president. They will be disposed of at some point.
All this is going to do is “gum up the mail.” The regular mail such as checks, packages, bills, magazines, medicines, and yes, junk mail will be delayed. What about the thousands or maybe even millions of people who have medicines such as insulin delivered to their residences through the U.S. Postal Service? What if the medicine is delayed and the recipient is out of his or her prescriptions? Every American is going to be inconvenienced in some way.
Also, extra postal workers are going to have to be brought in to deal with all of this. That means the already financially strapped USPS is going to pay out additional money in wages and overtime. Furthermore, these postcards are just going to be disposed of. And where are they going to be taken. This is surely going to clog up the garbage dumps across the United States. Could this paper be recycled? Probably. But the works are going to be “gummed up” somewhere.
If those of us who didn’t vote for or support Obama when he was elected president had pulled something like this, we would, first of all, been called racists, the term that has always been thrown out at those who didn’t agree with the former president’s policies. We would also have been called tree-killers because trees are used to make postcards. But since you are liberals and have the media on your side, nothing much will be said by the media.
This is nothing but an act of pure hate by those on the left. They can’t get over the fact that they lost the election…their candidate didn’t win. It’s been four months since the election and they’re still acting like the whiny brats they are. Because they are miserable, they’re going to ruin things for everyone else and cause hurt to as many Americans as possible.
Surprised? You shouldn’t be.
