dd in the Postal Service folks....(and the taxpayer is throwing tens of billions at the post office, so don't give me any crap about it not being a government entity)....and you find that the high salaries aren't justified..

you're pathological and it appears hopelessly ignorant.

Even though it's a federal agency, the Postal Service has not received any taxpayer funding since the early 1980s, when it was phased into an independent, self-sufficient financial entity. "We're not seeking any tax dollars," said Postal Service spokesman David Partenheimer. "We don't use tax dollars for our operation."

I'll leave it for the reader to determine why postal workers aren't counted as federal employees.
