Senator Hagan should try to stop the local government from interfering with the delivery of the mail by allowing the USPS to deliver to other addresse than 911 addressing. My street has a name and it is not Cr, or County Road which is a generic address that is confusing and endangering my life and my property and I refuse to use it. If you come on my private property and you use this Cr address to talk to me. You will be informed that you are trespassing and I will not discuss anything with you. I also refuse to give credit to a cr address as well as a pvt address in my businesses. I will not accept any instrument with an address like this on it. Assigned addresses are an attack on Free Speech, especially when there is already an address on the street that has been used for over a hundred years. These cr addresses are not any improvement over rr numbers. They are just as confusing except rr numbers are not offensive, and cr addresses infer that the county owns you which is very offensive when you take into account that other county Roads bear names in the elite neighborhoods. I did not buy a house on a road named County Road or cr####. Calling my home this violates my constitutional rights.

Another question that has arisen is why do packages that are being sent south go north instead causing a delay in delivery and more expense for the delivery. If I send a package from Oklahoma to Texas, Why does it go to kansas City Kansas and not to Mesquite Texas. Surely, you do not send every package from Oklahoma to Texas in the wrong direction of Kansas. If this is the case no wonder you are going broke. You will not deliver the mail to where it is going instead you are playing what seems to be a game with it. Add up the extra miles and then consider this ridiculus return to sender policy implemented by you on behalf of the county government to enforce an illegally issued address and you can really understand why you are going broke. Anyone with any common sense can see this. My Grandfather used to say let the government get involved and the plumbing will surely get clogged up. I think that I am beginning to understand what he's talking about and he left this world in the 50's,and saw the civil war up close and personal.

I wonder where Senator Hagan would stand on the making of a postage stamp that can help support the meals-on-wheels program and cover the federal cost of food stamps!!
