    Harry Reid: ‘Seniors Love to Get Junk Mail…Only Way of Communicating or Feeling Like

    Is this guy totally insane? Has he gone off the deep end? wat a nut.

    Harry Reid: ‘Seniors Love to Get Junk Mail…Only Way of Communicating or Feeling Like They‘re a Part of the Real World’ | Postal Service | USPS | Video | TheBlaze.com

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) on Wednesday claimed senior citizens “love” junk mail and cited them as a reason to pass a United States Postal Service reform bill.
    “Elderly Americans rely on the United States Postal Service,” Reid said in a Senate floor speech. “I’ll come home tonight here to my home in Washington and there’ll be some mail there. A lot of it is what some people refer to as junk mail, but for the people that are sending that mail, it’s very important.”

    what an insane response.

    I happen to fit into the "senior" category. Reid stating “And when talking about seniors, seniors love to get junk mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world.”
    I wonder who in the heck he been polling. I hate junk mail. It is a waste of paper, a waste of the post office resources. IMO, Reid must have had a senior momement to come up with that line. It is almost as good as Pelosi's, "we have to pass the bill first to see what is in it" (paraphrased).

    If you like junk mail, maybe I can find a way to forward you all my junk mail.

    Harry Reid, who is unfortunately the Representative of my state is a moron of prodigious proportions. This SOS works hand in hand with the Casinos to insure we have no other jobs and they can maintain their low wages and high abuse factor.

    We had a chance to get rid of him but the glorious Tea Party fronted a candidate so wacky and ridiculous (Sharon Angle) that he was handily re-elected. Thanks a lot Tea Party.

    And yes, I'm a senior and I wish I never saw another piece of junk mail in my life but with elections looming, I'm sure my wish will ot come true.

    Hey don't get me wrong.

    I think Harry Reid is an idiot too.

    It's just when my irony meter gets pegged, it's pretty hard to hold it back.

    Another mistake made into something much bigger than it should actually be. Are you people this unforgiving and unwilling to give people the benefit of the doubt in real life, or just when you are talking about people from the other side of the partisan aisle when you are anonymous on the internet?

    If you take out the word "junk," his comments make complete sense.

    I’ll come home tonight here to my home in Washington and there’ll be some mail there. A lot of it is what some people refer to as junk mail, but for the people that are sending that mail, it’s very important.

    And when talking about seniors, seniors love to get mail. It’s sometimes their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world.

    Unless we act quickly, thousands of post offices – as I indicated, there are more than 30,000 in America, many of them rural – will close. I’ve said this earlier today, I repeat it: These rural post offices [are] the only way that people have who are in those small communities to communicate with the outside world. Maybe some medicine they’re getting, maybe keep in touch with their family. It’s their way of keeping in touch with the world."
    I think it's about 99% likely this is the speech he intended to say.

    It's pretty sad when people take tiny little mistakes and use it to affirm their own fantasy that the other side consists of complete idiots who shouldn't be given the time of day. Demonstrates what is so messed up with our political system.

    Question Reid should answer.
    Why does Congress basically control what the USPS can charge for mail? If Congress wants the USPS to continue at six day a week delivery, avoid layoffs, closures, then let them decide how to generate revenue and what rates they need to stop loosing money.

    Like all government entities, they don't have to or need a profit and they're making damn sure the Post Office never makes one.
