9. We are a 'Think Tank.'
The main reason I left DU3, was the perceived inability of the far-Left and marginal Teabaggers to compromise on their ideology.
I got tired of barking at the Moon.

I resigned from the CIA in protest, for their inability to accept that they could be wrong. Their mindset was still locked in a loop at the Bay of Pigs, and nothing was going to change that. They even admitted it, and told me it didn't matter if I was right.

That's an interesting quote: "Forget about it. Go home and be happy with what you have because you are never going to beat them."

It's a Reich-Wing admonition, if you look at it from a reality-based viewpoint. Maybe that was the whole point of his spiel.

So, the audience, knowing he is right, goes home and does nothing. Great.

I am Santa. All I need are a lot of Elves.
