Harvey Milk forever stamp 2014
Noooooooooooooo!
The American Family Association (a designated hate group that still attracts genuflecting Republican politicians for some reason) is very, very angry that the United States Post Office saw fit to print a stamp honoring the late Harvey Milk, and they're not going to take it anymore. To the crazymobile!
What you can do…

1. Refuse to accept the Harvey Milk stamp if offered by your local post office. Instead, ask for a stamp of the United States flag.

2. Refuse to accept mail at your home or business if it is postmarked with the Harvey Milk stamp. Simply write 'Return to Sender" on the envelope and tell your postman you won't accept it.

I only accept 'Merican flag stamps, damn it! No, wait—I only accept bright shiny silver dimes taped to the letters, none of this government postal scrip for me! No—I only accept letters delivered by men in full revolutionary regalia! On horseback! And the horse has to have a patriotic name, something like "Starspangled" or "Alexander Hay-milton".

Please do this, patriots. Please, please refuse to accept or open your mail if it comes with a stamp picturing the guy you don't like. Any inconvenience or financial harm you suffer from not getting that mail will be a small price to pay compared to the entertainment value the rest of us will get by watching it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
