Sen. Reid: Junk Mail Is Seniors ‘Only Way Of Communicating Or Feeling Like They’re Part Of The Real World’
Made popular 396 days ago in
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) delivered a spirited defense of the United States Post Office on Thursday, telling his Senate colleagues that – while most of the parcels delivered today are “what some people refer to as junk mail,” it remains elderly American’s “love to get junk mail” and feel that it’s “their only way of communicating or feeling like they’re part of the real world.”
Addressing the Senate, Reid began his defense of junk mail saying that “elderly Americans rely on the United States Postal Service.”
“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 who are sending that mail, it’s very important,” Reid said. “And when talking about seniors, seniors love getting junk 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,” Reid continued.
“These rural post offices [are] the only way that people who are in those small communities to communicate with the outside world,” attested Reid. “It’s their way of keeping in touch with the world.”
Reid concluded by saying that the Post Office is important to many Americans, including the many veterans who are employed by the post service. However, the post office has seen a “21 percent drop in mail volume over the last five years.”

Is there even one member of the donkey party who is in touch with reality?
NO! I can not think of a single one.
Yes, please leave a name in the comments section. It will be of interest to normal people to see just who the lefties believe is normal so we can use them for a benchmark.
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.
