The COVID virus has been blamed for a lot of things this year – deserved or not – and now online Christmas shoppers are being told to expect a delay in receiving their packages … and it's COVID's fault. To make matters worse, the emergency rollout of the COVID vaccine that is gearing up right now has taken precedence over Christmas gifts, creating a stackup all up and down the logistics supply chain from the nation's ports all the way to a Christmas shopper's front door.

Today crossing into Cheyenne WY we saw 1st 3 military humvees, little after a chopper flew over I-80, then we heard sirens saw flashing red n blue lights for an military escort party and middle of them was a plain white moving van type trailer. Like Mayflower runs.....Covid Vaccine comin. heard just hour before wyoming was getting the vaccine in a matter of hours

The USPS delays are in part due to the lunatics who insisted the letter sorting machines that have been scheduled for removal over the last 8 years or so be kept.

The removal of those machines would have created room for package sorting machines to be implemented. Instead, media whipped up controversy that the removal of these machines would delay the vote.....despite the ballots being too big for those letter sorting machines.

Now people are complaining the packages cant be sorted.

I hate people
