Agent Orange has made Christmas Eve a national holiday as an executive order. Are we off that day?

We are never, ever off at the post office. I’m not sure if we are even considered federal employees when it comes to things like this. I guess we will see but I highly doubt it.

The OP is upset that President Trump has declared Christmas Eve as a National holiday? BUT, want to have the day off.

When someone uses derogatory comments about someone, they must be upset with them.

Somebody better tell my office. They have two lists posted for December 24.

One is for carriers with Thursday as their SDO volunteer to work. The other is for volunteers whose SDO is Christmas/holiday off on the 24th.
We decide which is right; and which is an illusion. I've got blisters on me fingers!

Trump has given federal employees Christmas Eve off for three straight years (by Executive Order).

p.s. It does not apply to USPS. You'll soon find out that we're not always treated exactly like other federal employees. Especially when extra paid days off are involved. Such is the life of a postal worker.

==========

"Trump has been relatively generous with granting federal employees vacation around Christmas. Last year the president surprised federal employees by giving them Dec. 24 off despite the fact that Christmas fell on a Wednesday. Trump also gave Christmas Eve off in 2018, to allow the federal workforce a four-day weekend. Christmas Eve is not an official federal holiday."

It sucks having a President that cares about the Federal workforce, and the population of the country and world in general.

3 Middle East peace treaties in the last 9 months. If someone can find some peace treaties that Obama negotiated, you know, that guy that won the Nobel Peace Prize before he was sworn in, let me know.

The real tax relief for working people that happened just this summer. Flexible Spending Accounts are now allowed to reimburse for OTC medications. And massage therapy. If President Trump had another term, we would see the amount allowed to set aside from $2500 to $5000. For you uninformed, During the Obama administration, FSA's dropped the amount allowed to be set aside from $5000 to $2500. And OTC medications were drop from the list of items allowed to be reimbursed. This affected me personally as I was 1 year late in having Lasik eye surgery. I had to pay $500 more in taxes that year because of this.

Those who are, know those who are not.

The worst Biden policy of all is transitioning totally away from fossil fuels. There is not a single product not made with petroleum. Trump made us energy Independent for the FIRST time in History.......Now we have the Green New Deal on the horizon and a commitment to end the Petroleum industry by the majority of the left.

That will be the undoing of the USA.

You recall that President Trump called for the restriction of travel form China in Jan/Feb. But was called racist and a xenophobe by the left.

You recall the the governor and mayor of NY called for covid patients to be sent to nursing/retirement homes for treatment. Infecting 1000's of the most at risk of dying from the Wuhan flu.

Trump did not start the virus. China did.

I understand your dislike for the man. But he has done good things for our country.

Remember Obama and Biden saying the the US has lost factory jobs and they will never return? Only to have President Trump do just that?

Remember the millions of dollars dropped off on the runway in Iran during the Obama administration?

Remember the Fast and Furious gun running during the Obama administration?

We all know the big con of Obama care:

https://www.hcplive.com/...h-care-fraud-of-all-time

Quote:
[The ACA] was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scores the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. OK? So it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are going to pay in—you made [it] explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money—it would not have passed. OK? Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass.


Here is a video on the topic. CNN doing a actual investigative segment.

Rich republican politicians taking advantage of middle class idiot republicans like you is a trend that’s been going on in the country for decades now. “You” types of people are what’s bringing this country down and making it look like a joke to the rest of the world. The uneducated, irrational, ignorant ***** that comes out of your mouth is the same ***** that comes out of Trump’s mouth. It’s no wonder he’s your klan leader and you stand by him. The amount of damage he’s done to the country far exceed the good he’s done and your blindness will never see that. Go in the kitchen, crack open a bud light and take a seat, Roger :)

When you get done checking your fantasy football stats, feel free to state 1 item. No essay needed. 1 sentences is fine.

I will be over here reading https://www.bogleheads.org/forum/index.php and listening to some informative podcasts. You know, things that matter in life.
