Before entering upon their duties and before receiving any salary, all officers and employees of the Postal Service shall take and subscribe the following oath or affirmation:

β€œI, ________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter.”

Removal and dismantling of our USPS, at this particularly crucial and delicate moment in time, is only successful with willing accomplices. If you are a postal worker please continue to do your work for the next few very rocky months. You are essential workers. Your country needs you. You will be heroes.

A lesson learned decades ago, in D.C, ' It isn't illegal to be incompetent.'
