Enjoying a pint of pumpkin porter at noon on a Tuesday. Life has been worse. Maybe I'll brew tomorrow.

I am aware of this. Post office is open for business today. They are an independent agency of the US goverment. They do not receive tax payer dollars.

I work for a government contractor but we won't be furloughed. We may not get paid for a while though...

Edit: paid by the government that is. I will still get paid

Usps is a completely private entity, it receives all of its funding internally, from postage, etc.

Correct. Someone had mentioned something about their supply shop shipped via FedEx. It sounded like they were insinuating that FedEx was part of the govt.

USPS is so poorly managed it doesn't make enough to cover itself and thereby does receive money from the .gov on a regular basis to maintain itself as an entity, although no longer part of the .gov it is indeed heavily funded by the .gov.


I probably just stepped out of bounds with that comment.

My folks would agree with that, the entire organization is apparently very very top heavy. Too many managing, not enough working.
