Save America's Postal Service

April 12 Demonstrations to
Save America’s Postal Service


Join us April 12 for demonstrations to oppose S. 1789


On April 12, the National Association of Letter Carriers will hold “Save America’s Postal Service” demonstrations outside of Senate offices across the country. They are designed to put pressure on each senator to oppose S. 1789, a bill in the U.S. Senate scheduled to be voted on as soon as next week.
The timing and impact of these events will be critical in helping us to stop S. 1789 and save America’s Postal Service.
If S. 1789 were to pass, the bill would hurt retirees and the Postal Service by:

·    Putting an end to six-day mail delivery in two years.
·    Phasing out door-to-door mail delivery.

These events are meant to engage the public through the use of speeches, handouts and demonstrations to make our voices heard. Many retirees receive their needed prescriptions by mail.  These proposed changes could threaten their well-being.
The Postal Service has a wide variety of supporters, many of whom may wish to participate in “Save America’s Postal Service” demonstrations, including small-business owners who use the mail to advertise, veterans groups, local elected officials, labor union members, faith leaders, and progressive allies who have concerns for the plight of working men and women.

On Thursday, Please Call your senators toll-free at 1-888-863-6103
and tell them to vote NO on S. 1789 to save America’s Postal Service.

Trump To Cut Social Security

Trump’s Promise Not to Cut Social Security has been Broken by Robert Roach, Jr. President Trump’s fiscal 2018 budget is a non-starter. He has betrayed America’s seniors. In fact, $2 trillion in deficit reduction turns out to be just a math error. The budget cuts $72 billion over ten years from disability programs, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Trump promised repeatedly to protect – not cut – Social Security. Yet his first budget does just that, harming millions of disabled Americans.  The Trump budget also slashes $1.4 trillion from Medicaid over 10 years. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), total Medicaid spending was $368 billion in 2016. Almost two-thirds of that was for seniors and people with disabilities, who rely on Medicaid for health care and long-term care. This cut is drastic and dangerous by any measurement. This budget also decimates the Community Development Block Grant, which pro…

The Ship of Fear

My Destroyer, the U.S.S. Walker, was tied up in Pearl Harbor.

The Newspaper headlines for several days along with lengthy articles told of a merchant ship, "the Pomona" that was tied up in Honolulu waiting for crew to take it to the far east. The Captain had been murdered while at sea and the crew was afraid that the murderer was still aboard. The ship finally got underway again and my memory is that it had rudder problems and had to return to port. Then, after getting underway again it had a fire on board and had to return again.

While on liberty one day in Honolulu, I stopped in at a saloon on my way back to my ship. There, I met a merchant sailor who happened to be a sailor aboard the Pomona. He offered to take me back to the ship and let me come aboard her. We did and headed for the bow of the ship where there was a lot of noise. There sitting on the deck were a number of sailors, mostly drunken, talking about their predicament.

This occurred sometime between 1961 and…
