After careful consideration and much contemplation I arrived at the unavoidable conclusion that Above Top Secret desperately required a thread that
drew inspiration from the great investigative journalists of our era, the Bob Woodwards, Carl Bernsteins and Seymour Hershs. Which then combined their
talents for ferreting out the truth with the masters of the art of interview, the Howard Sterns, Diane Sawyers and Barbara Walters of the world,
giving you the choicest details on each guest. A marriage of information and titillation. A truly marvelous portal into the psyches and ambitions of
your fellow members. Bringing them to you on a human level and exposing their true selves in an intimate format with an effort to foster community and
entertain the masses. Expository journalism at its finest.
This is not that thread.
Instead, you have me.
It will be a thread where I am teeing up beach ball-sized questions that my guests can hit out of the park while I simultaneously carry their water.
In short, just another Main Stream Media-style interview minus the crass commercials for cheap products you do not need. Except maybe the ones I
choose to insert into the posts due to my guaranteed Illuminati-Corporatist paycheck.
Each interview will be conducted via the sites Private Message system and posted here so you can devour every salacious morsel with voyeuristic
avarice. You are then free to ask follow up questions to our guest in an effort to either better understand them personally or ridicule them for not
agreeing 100% with whatever it is you think they are being a rock-head about. Preferably the former.
Our site is graced with many long standing members who have contributed greatly to what makes Above Top Secret unique. People from all walks of life
and beliefs whose contributions you may recognize but never knew what made them who they are on a personal level. There are many to choose from and
hopefully this ongoing thread can cover as many of them as are willing to participate (and if they mail me $50 I can move them up the list). But
everything needs a beginning and I was fortunate enough to get an approval on my first request.
The inaugural member that was gracious enough to agree to this potentially rude and vile treatment is none other than the Minister of Mirth, the Raja
of Ridiculousness, the Prince of Preposterousness, our very own DBCowboy.
AM: Well DB, you are certainly well known on this site, your wit and style are legendary. What brought you to Above Top Secret?
DB: What brought me to ATS? Simple. I was looking for porn sites. (Kidding. Or am I?) Government cover-ups. Government lies. I spent some time working
for said government and I know that it (as an entity) tells fibs from time to time.
AM: So when you say 'fibs from time to time' are we talking the Post Office said it lost your mail but the letter carrier chucked them in a stream
type fibs or we are really hiding aliens in Area 51 type fibs?
DB: [DB’s previous government involvement redacted to prevent him from being suicided.]
On the record; government has gotten into the habit of telling us what they want us to hear, not necessarily what we need to hear. I think there are a
multitude of things we don't know about. I was stationed in England (Rendlesham Forest) in the early 80's, for example.
I, like anyone else, am curious about what really may be out there.
AM: Fair enough. So, what do you think is out there?
DB: Aliens. Really pissed off aliens. We have been portraying them in books, films for decades. We've made them evil, benign, ugly, green, grey.
We stereotype aliens. We never show the softer side of aliens. We use and abuse their technology.
The aliens that try to destroy the White House in movies? They were actually trying to help us.
And what do we do?
We always end up blowing them up.
I'm not an "alienist".
On a side note, when I hear of illegal aliens congregating in the parking lots of Home Depot, I imagine tiny creatures with antennae smoking
cigarettes waiting for work.
AM: It truly is sad that they get such a bad rap, hell, we would not have the Luxor in Vegas if it weren't for their earlier handiwork. Are there any
other conspiracies you believe in or find plausible?
DB: The only other big conspiracy, one I hesitate to bring up...is why Ben Affleck was tapped to portray Batman.
(Now I'm afraid. I should have never opened that can of worms!)
AM: Another truly puzzling conundrum. You are a rather prolific poster, what does your Significant Other or friends think about your borderline
unhealthy obsession with this site?
DB: I used to dance naked in parking lots for spare change. My therapist thought this might be a better use of my time.
My wife thinks that as long as I'm not randomly painting mailboxes in my neighborhood, it's good.
AM: You recently referred to your self as a 'partisan asshole'. The regular members and even the casual poster has a good idea of your political
views. Would you consider yourself more an avowed Trump supporter or more of an anybody but Hillary type voter?
DB: Anyone but Hillary. I was for Ben Carson initially. I am partisan in that I don't compromise my beliefs on rights and freedoms. I don't like the
idea of ever compromising on a right, because it then stops being a right and becomes a negotiating point.
I believe that a legally married gay couple should walk into any bakery (armed) and order the cake of their choice while their transgender child uses
the bathroom they feel most comfortable in.
Oh, and Obamacare sucks.
AM: So which politicians, past and present, do you feel represent or best espouse your views?
DB: George Washington. It's been going down hill since then.
