Guess they report I receive the NRA magazine,  who knows what else.

No wonder the PO is always broke since they do all this, besides delivering.

 

"All of this really shouldn’t come as a surprise; a 2019 USPIS annual report revealed the existence of iCOP, albeit in less ominous terms.

The term “open source information” is just the government’s way of saying monitoring electronic communications or social media posts. It appears that Ray may have inadvertently admitted that the Postal Service was monitoring people’s social media posts as far back as 2014.Most American’s will find it hard believe that one of it’s most-trusted federal agencies has been turned into a militarized arm of the Feds."

U.S. Postal Service Logging All Mail for Law Enforcement

"From photographing and scanning everyone’s letters for law enforcement to social media spying and creating a national biometric network, DHS has managed to turn the USPS into another spy agency, complete with its own police force.

Together, the two programs show that postal mail is subject to the same kind of scrutiny

that the National Security Agency has given to telephone calls and e-mail.

Bruce Schneier, a computer security expert and an author, said whether it was a postal worker taking down information or a computer taking images, the program was still an invasion of privacy.

“Basically they are doing the same thing as the other programs, collecting the information on the outside of your mail, the metadata, if you will, of names, addresses, return addresses and postmark locations, which gives the government a pretty good map of your contacts, even if they aren’t reading the contents,” he said."
