Stamps are cancelled for a single very good reason.  So people can't cut out pristine stamps, take a little glue, and use them over and over again.  Every time the USPS does not cancel a stamp, it gives up money.  This, at an agency which cries poverty and posts losses every year, in the billions, despite billions in subsidies.

Right after it was noticed in the pipe bomb scare that the stamps on the packages were not cancelled, the media immediately pounced on "conspiracy theorists" who noticed this and cited it as further evidence that the bombs were conveniently timed to make Trump supporters look like violent lunatics.  Now we learned that not all stamps are cancelled, and, according to Snopes, that could mean 80% of all stamps.   Snopes found a stamp collector who said:

Quote
There are estimates of up to 80 percent of packages delivered through the mail are delivered without cancellations.

Snopes then quoted unnamed sources in an NBC report to explain to the Little People why stamps would not be cancelled:

Quote
some packages were not postmarked because the soft packaging could not go through the postal machines.

Yet the postal experts admitted that when a package would not fit through an machine, which would be an awful lot of packages and the most profitable because they need the most postage, it was the job of the handler to scratch a line through the stamps by hand with a black magic marker.

Mainstream media started suggesting that maybe some of the packages were delivered by courier.  But if delivered by courier, why would they need stamps?

The media used words like "filth" and "despicable" toward Trump supporters speculating that all was not exactly as the government's story said, a lone nut with brand new Trump stickers all over his van did it.

So what gives, people who work or have worked at a Post Office?  Doesn't anyone spot check if workers are drawing a line through the stamps, and could this be why the Post Office is perpetually, forever broke and asking for a hand-out?  Or is this "debunk" bunk?  Selling stamps and postage is the whole way the PO makes money.  Now suddenly here are multiple packages in a row, same thing.

So far I am hearing from anyone who has worked in a post office that the stamps are always cancelled, barring unusual exceptions.
