  •  It Is Just Sad. I Often Talk Here About My Dad (12+ / 0-)

    what I don't often say is this. Via his high level job at the DoD he got calls almost weekly asking him to come to the contractor side of things. They offered him tens of thousands.

    After he retired he got a call in like 2004 telling him they'd pay him $950,000 for four months if he head to Iraq for four months. He told them to go pound dirt. People like you are the problem.

    My dad and I don't often agree on a lot of things, but our core is similar. Stuff like this!

    •  When I Programmed for State U. I Was offered 50% (10+ / 0-)

      raise to come work for a contractor operating in the next door building. If I'd had solid health of course I'd have done it.

      •  My Dad And I Differ On A Lot Of Stuff (8+ / 0-)

        but to be honest his level of integrity is superior to mine. He got more money thrown at him then I can imagine and just laughed it away. Heck maybe what I like most is I didn't know he was a Republican until he retired, cause as he liked to say:

        I serve at the pleasure of the President.
        My father was a military planner. He planned for war. Taught at the Army War College. The second most thing I like about him is he is AGAINST the wars we're in. Totally against them. He thinks they make no sense. No exit strategy. No way to "win" cause there isn't an objective you can measure.

        You go dad ....
