Save Our Postal Service!
My blogging friend Beth shared this powerful story the other day.
Beth, I tried to “reblog” so people would be taken right to your story, but it wouldn’t activate…so, I did the next best thing: I copied the story to share with all of you, because it’s more vital now than ever.
Welcome To Ochopee!
Beth took us to the Ochopee Post Office in Ochopee, Florida – the smallest post office in the United States.
Ochopee has one 131-mile mail route that serves more than 900 residents. The mail route covers deliveries in three counties and includes delivery on the Miccosukee Indian Reservation. The tiny building used to serve as a storage shed for irrigation pipes for a tomato farm but was pressed into service as post office after the Ochopee general store/post office was destroyed in a fire in 1953.
Almost 1,000 people get their mail from that small building in Ochopee. And it’s one of thousands of post offices around the country that keep America going…and we can’t allow that to end, simply because of a despicable attempt to subvert democracy.
You can go to any new source to discover what is going on here – but we must make our voices known to ensure that, due to political shenanigans, the post office doesn’t become this:
Beth left us with this great quote:
“another success is the post office, with its educating energy augmented by cheapness and guarded by a certain religious sentiment in mankind; so that the power fo a wafer or a drop of wax or gluten to guard a letter, as it flies over sea, over land, and comes to its address as if a battalion of artillery brought it, i look upon as a fine meter of civilization.”

America’s Most Prestigious Rental Property!
Really, that’s all The White House is: a rental property with a 4 year lease, which then goes up for renewal…and guess what?
Remember these facts:
In 1980, we voted out a Democratic President after a single term.
In 1992, we voted out a Republican President after a single term.
In 2000, the Supreme Court awarded the Presidency to a Republican candidate after a recount of the vote in Florida.
See? Democracy works, as long as we NEVER allow it to be taken away illegally.
And we have had some real crazy people in the Oval Office, folks…click here to see some of the most notorious Presidents in history!
