Postal Crisis, JRP0150

August 16, 2020

We break down the chaos occurring with the US Postal Service, the political motivation of the players at hand, and the deep structural problems with the post office’s business model.  We spend a great deal of time discussing how this will impact the upcoming election and play into the hands of Donald Trump and others.  We also get into the gig economy, the entrepreneurial mindset and how that can help both gig workers and traditional employees get greater pay and happiness.


We also discuss a range of other people and places including Poway, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Sabre Springs, 4S Ranch, Pete Neild, Michael Devine, Chris Olps, Frank Fournier, Caylin Frank, San Diego Padres, Pahrump, Fortress of Solitude, Mental Clarity, Wall Street Journal, Blockbuster, Netflix, Seinfeld, Newman
