US Postmaster General

Beating America's enemies to a pulp with a sack of jury duty notifications.

It's also a great title. Sounds way better than President.

Wouldn’t the football coach for Navy be considered to be a federal employee and he got paid 2 million last year?

Navy's Ken Niumatalolo, who has led the Midshipmen to eight straight wins over Army West Point as part of the rivalry's most lopsided stretch, remains the highest-paid service academy football coach, according to USA Today's annual college football salary list.

Niumatalolo will make $2 million in 2016, per USA Today, up from $1,637,803 last year and good for 57th among all college coaches.

Probably a difference between an Official vs Employee.

Sure, but the Surgeon General actually holds the authority of a flag officer.

Because your friends feel guilty they never sent them back when it counted, so they're dropping them in the post now.

If they get paid so much why am I still getting rsvp’s back for my wedding that was over a month ago?

The service academy coaches are paid through private foundations. Also Army won last year.

"In addition to being a postmaster, I'm a general. And we both know it's the job of a general to by god get things done."

And sears catalogs.

Strictly speaking, there is no basic pay for O-9 with <20 years service.

But the position is equivalent to the Joint Chiefs of Staff who have a specific pay rate based on position versus actual rank and service, so I imagine it's capped at ~15.5k/mo + allowances.

You are forgetting all the money that senators and congressmen are paid in order to vote for various business interests.

Neat, TIL. 3 stars for that matter. Do you know if they're on the same payscale or paid differently?

Now you want that mail, don't you Mr. Kramer?

That usually results in a beating of the sack.

That should keep them from going postal
