UPDATE: I have called both the local San Diego post office and the national 1-800 number. I was given two totally different answers. This is leading to a lot of confusion. The San Diego branch confirmed this story, saying not to even bother bringing in items marked "Made in China" or "Made in Korea". The guys at the 1-800 number said there is nothing official in the computer about this, and that normally it depends on what the item is, and where it is going...not where it was made. So what's the deal? Continue to send me any reports of this happening in your neck of the woods!
ORIGINAL STORY: Ok. I have some disturbing news to report to all of you today. I am hearing reports from viewers nationwide that the USPS has banned shipments of any item that is marked "Made in China" or "Made in Korea". As you all know, toys, electronics, gaming consoles/games, music CD's, and so much more are mostly all made in China.
One particular incident happened in San Diego, when a viewer was trying to ship a simple Barbie Doll. The USPS opened the package and told her tha tshe couldn't send it because of the ban. they would not explain why, just that they could no send it at all. The package was going out of state, but not out of Country.
This grows even more disturbing, as I continue to get reports from views across the country about this strange ban. So we ask why? Why right at Christmas time do you ban the shipment of items "Made in China"? Is it because of tensions with N. Korea, and China's support of the country?
So we say to the USPS, thanks for ruining Christmas. Many children will not get their toys this year because you all want to be dicks.
We say to you viewers, please continue to tell us of these happenings, and we will try to get to the bottom of this.
