dare you take a stand?
PAPA!! Quit outing all our CIA operatives!!! Between you and Royr we wont have any for long!! :rofl: J/kPapa_D said:I am neither Republican nor Democrat and in fact am a registered Independent. Our government is full of bold faced liars and I am convinced that this will not change in our lifetime. When I vote, it is to keep certain people out of office and never to put anyone particular in office.
The reality of our modern democracy is that monumental decisions are made daily behind closed doors and in back alleys around the world. I have seen the dark side of government and have become a realist about what is possible to attain with as bloated a bureaucracy as we have saddled ourselves with.
I am acquainted with the only female CIA field operative to win the distinguished service award and have seen it proudly displayed on her bookcase. This women looks like everybody's favorite aunt, speaks several languages fluently and is very charming indeed. Her home is eclectically decorated with fine arts and crafts amassed while on assignment around the world. She lives in a small town with other operatives who are all guarded discreetly. You could drive by this community and never know you had. the utilities are autonomous and they all have secure rooms if the occasion arises. All visitors and communications are monitored faithfully and the residents have very little true privacy. I have known the operatives daughter for years and photographed her wedding at her mothers home where most of the guests were also field operatives. I felt like the odd man out to say the least. They are a tight knit group and very secretive about most things. I spent 5 hours in the home and tried to get pictures of everyone but some were camera shy and escaped my quick shot prowess. I was able to view the photographs but do not have copies. "Aunt B" is currently on field assignment somewhere in Iraq.
The average American just wants to go on about their merry way, oblivious to the beast we feed with our tax dollars. My point is that our government is run underground and unless you want to march on Washington armed to the teeth, you better get used to it.
Trust me, Aunt B is safer than our President because nobody knows where she's at, lol. I swing to the right mostly but am a registered Independent, go figure,lol.Helinut1970 said:PAPA!! Quit outing all our CIA operatives!!! Between you and Royr we wont have any for long!! :rofl: J/k
I would say I am more conservitave than anything. (du) But I do not vote party. I will vote my beliefs and convictions. If Zell Miller (old school dem.) were to run, well I would be in his camp. I cant quite be in Lebermans camp just because he is a jew. (not being racest here) Its just that the world would see us no matter what we do as VERY bias to Iseral. As if they are not thinking that already. It would make it even worse.
